I'm losing my mind

All of a sudden, the laptop mouse won't move to the lower half of the screen. And I'm like "what the heck is going on?" I look at the trackpad and there's water on it and I think "where did the water come from?"

Then I realize: A minute before, I was watching a LOTR parody on YouTube and had my ear really close to the speaker so I could hear. And my mouth was open.

The "water" was drool.

My brain is definitely turning to mush.

random music links

Some fun music-related things (mostly 70s/80s music, because that's my time):

Let It Die: 23 Songs That Should Never Be Covered Again (from Onion AV Club). Go through the list not just because it's a marvelous waste of time, go through it for the mostly hideous videos redeemed only by Devo's version of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction".

Women of 70s Punk. An awesome site, all it needs is links to some videos.

El Vez, the Mexican Elvis. I saw him in concert many years ago in San Jose, it was absolutely great, and his Christmas Album (Merry Mex-Mas) is a holiday staple in our house.

Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Seriously, this is like an entire day that can be wasted on this site.

RetroStatic.com. Commercials from the 80s, info (and intros) for 80s cartoons - why are you still here, click already!

YANS (Yet Another New Story) with a fragment

While reading LCRW #21 (Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet) today, a story there re-sparked an idea that's been buzzing around my brain and gave it enough twist that I decided to write part of it tonight.

It's currently called "When The Party of the First Part Met The Party of the Second Part, with Addendum and Rider". In a nutshell, it's set in a world where all human actions and interactions are tightly, legally regulated and thus no matter what you do, you need a contract and legal advice. Now, try having a romance in this world.

I sat and cranked 1101 words on the story and it was kind of fun. Of course, this means I now have *four* stories active: "When Crogdor Came Back", "Real Space" (rewrite), "The Dybbuk's Moll", and this one.

That's too many. I really need to get back to focusing on Crogdor and Real Space because they are the current stories. The others can wait.

Distraction mind, focus! I said, focus!

Oh, look, shiny things...
