Talented but Muddled

Art, writing, movies, music... all the stuff I like...
mostly Steam Powered Giraffe

Human race too complicated. Submitting my resignation. No, not suicide. I like to toss around the idea but it isn’t practical.


Tips for Curly Hair by Natalina

This is pretty much everything I’ve been researching all in one place. I don’t do things exactly the way she does, but I started by trying them and managed to home in on what works for me. I do comb, gently and usually with my hair wet, my hair is fine and does like some protein and tends to be oily naturally so I do shampoo. But I got a natural shampoo from Sprouts, with matching conditioner, and use a little leave in conditioner afterward. About once a week or so I use clarifying shampoo and follow it with protein conditioner and leave-in moisturizing conditioner after. I list all this because I came back from Utah and Nevada with dried out hair that had a buildup of glork from my leave in conditioner and did my protein routine and it sprang right back to cute.

Photographs of silent film stars as children (top to bottom: Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Mary Pickford)

Interesting that Buster is the only one smiling.

And it looks like the natural sort of smile that they just couldn’t get him to hold back. So much for the old myth about why he “never” smiled on camera. ;)

Trekkiebeth posted a pic of when they did wired wrong and it reminded me of a thing
the next day I got to talk to David for a minute and I asked if that was the first time they did it and he said yeah and something like they didn’t know if it’d work without a whole band backing them and how in…

Oh! I actually did something like that to Professor Elemental! I told him I had been to Walter Robotics Expo and enjoyed his performance there so much that he was in fact the reason I attended the Gaslight Gathering, and I swear to you, he giggled. He also credits Steam Powered Giraffe for teaching him a thing or two about merchandising and said that sitting at the end of their autograph table was one of the loneliest experiences of his life… lol Poor babby

What is it about grown men getting all goofy with flattery?

I was gonna work on it when I got home… but I think maybe it can wait a little longer. I just got home today and I shopped and did laundry… I play now. Sassy Rabbit will have to wait to crush some sweet dreams… She’ll want to do it right. I just wanted to share the sassiness before I give up and replay Portal 2.



Hit shuffle on your iPod/phone/iTunes/media player/etc. and write down the first 20 songs that play. Then pass this on to 10 people.

One rule: no skipping.

"i don’t support feminism because i don’t hate men"


Sure is actually. I believe the term you’re interested in is GENDER EQUALITY.


Who is that?

Looks like the singer from Panic at the Disco…
