It’s the last Monday in Halloween, and I’ve got some Jekyll and Hyde for you. Enjoy~Week 34
Last week it was witches and vampires. This week, it’s zombies. Have I mentioned how much I love October yet? Just a couple more weeks til Halloween~ 🎃💖🎃Week 33
What’s October without a witch or two? And of course vampires…(See, I told you I’ll be switching it up~)Week 32
Get used to seeing these guys every
OctoberVIXXtober. Don’t worry though, I’ll be mixing it up a bit throughout the month 😉😉😉
This one is bittersweet for me. Three of the members of this group were completing their military service and a fourth has left the group for…reasons. One of the remaining members, Ravi, was supposed to tour the US this year, but the concerts kept getting pushed back because of COVID and was cancelled altogether a couple weeks ago. It’s just a mess, but I love this song, it’s got a good story to it, and it’s got cyborgs, so it definitely falls under the sci-fi theme for the month. Enjoy! (Or don’t, but I mean, at least give it a chance…)Week 30
So apparently I’ve decided that September is Sci-fi month. This week is Starset’s “Bringing It Down.”
One of my favorite things about Starset (besides the music, itself), are the stories they weave in their videos. They have an over-all story arc and then they have these side stories that have nothing to do with the original, but are still great all on their own. I won’t spoil the story for this one. Just make sure to watch all the way through.Week 29
This week, we’re hoping across a couple ponds, over to Japan. J-rock singer, Gackt, has done a couple songs/videos with sci-fi themes. This one, “月の歌 / Tsuki no Uta” (Moon Song/Song of the Moon), is a personal favorite. I just wish I was able to find a better quality version of the video…Week 28
We’re jumping back into the music with a story, feet first! This was recommended by a friend. I didn’t understand at first, because I am not a car person (except for Mustangs. 😍), but then I read the lyrics. It’s actually not a bad sci-fi story. I was not expecting that. The only group from that time frame that I ever thought of having any kind of storyline was Pink Floyd, and that wasn’t sci-fi. I guess this is what you get when you’re left to your 70s/80s child sister to raise? I grew up with Bowie and Michael (George and Jackson) and missed out on a lot, apparently. Kinda disappointed, though. My dad was a huge sci-fi fan, but he never introduced me to Rush or told me about Brian Mays being an astrophysicist! To be fair, he might not’ve known, but still. I have so much geeky catching up to do…
For any of you behind like me, here’s Rush with “Red Barchetta.” (Those of you who already knew, got any suggestions of where to start?)Week 27
First things first: “Say ‘No!’ to Zombies” is available on Amazon kindle! (Still working on the paperback copy.)
Now that that’s out of the way – September, huh?
Sorry, I know some of you are like, “This is the longest January ever!” but I am more than happy to finally have most of summer behind me. I’ve spent the past two months (at least) grumbling about the heat (it’s almost 9pm when I’m writing this, and it’s still “Feels like 101°F” outside), so the fact that this week, we might be seeing temps in the 80°s is major cause for celebration. I told Nikki the other day that it feels like this year has flown by, what with it being one thing after another. I just can’t wait ‘til everything is over. I’m past done with customers being pissy about wearing a mask and Uber drivers trying to tell me that everything is a hoax.
Of course, the downside is that with it being September already, the kids are back in school. I mentioned before that we were sticking with remote learning, and let me tell you. It’s been a doozy. The eldest kiddo is doing fine. She gets up and gets to work, no problem. The youngest though, is fighting tooth and nail. He’s taken to waking up at 1am and staying up half the night, which means he’s cranky AF when 6:30am rolls around. He’s getting in trouble with his teachers and his classmates. It’s just a mess. A whole mess. (Before anyone starts on me: it’s not the teacher’s fault for this being a mess. The other students seem to be doing just fine. This is solely on the kiddo.) I don’t have to take over with him until about 9:15am, but from them until he’s done with his assignments for the day, it’s all out war. I’m quite eager to be moving out ASAP. (Too bad ASAP is still a good 6+months away.)
No real updates this month, besides the release of “Say ‘No!’ to Zombies.” I do have some time off from kids and work, so I’ll be writing as much as I can then. Sept. 7th will see the return of the #MusicMondays, so that’s something to look for, and I’ll try getting a new chapter of “Don’t Feed the Trolls” out later this month.
In the meantime, everyone stay safe and take care of yourself. It’s been a rough year, but we’ll make it through. If you’re taking part in any of the protests, double up on the staying safe and don’t forget your mask.
