Travel Documents pt.5The first thing to do is to set the stage – literally – for our performance. Given that the stage is both circular and in the center of the club, this presented quite the challenge to ensure that everyone on stage can visibly communicate with the other players while also not having his back to too much of the audience. As I've mentioned previously, this stage…is TINY. Because of that, a bass or guitar rig is completely out of the question. We instead stuffed a small combo amp in the empty stage space behind my keyboard stand. Ultimately, I decided to only use one keyboard to save space and instead use the top rack of my stand to hold my laptop (which I use to change sounds with precision and accuracy! ...most of the time ).Travel Documents pt.51 year ago in Personal More Like This
And here's where we get to the bad news…As much as I'd really like to pretend that it didn't happen, my wonderful keyboard, my baby that I've gigged with for over 7 years was damaged during the flight. Nothing major,

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

The year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!

I had a bunch of really great entries, and I had a difficult time not featuring more like six of these. After some serious thought, I narrowed it down to two that I believe stood out from all the awesome (which is tough to do when everything is already wonderful).

All these rain entries are making me wet.
I know, I know. "April Showers bring May flowers..." Yeah, I flipped that shit, bitch. See, I knew a week into last month that I wanted this theme to be rain and it was too late to try to switch them. Anyways, this is a depressing month for me. Sure, the next 4 will be depressing, but this one is really bad as it is the month my husband actually leaves on his deployment. I am not a happy Sparkly. I want not-so-happy emotes. Granted, if you decided to do an emote dancing in the rain and having a fun time, that will make me smile and be a good thing too. Drench your emotes, have them slide down a rainbow, stormy weather them...let the rain fall down!
