And that’s a wrap on ‘The Found and Lost’, a short play written by me.
It’s a H.P. Lovecraft inspired ‘found diary’ horror story with a small number of characters, Vincent, Anna and the Doctor. (no, not that ‘The Doctor’).
Now to hand it in. Looking forward to the marks. I’m pretty happy with it, though I wish we could have gone over 20 minutes and write a full length play. I have a feeling I may revisit this script once this is all over, and by revisit I mean completely re-write.
After it’s all handed in I may be able to post it, or at least a section of it on here.
Wish me luck!
When this is one of the notes on your play, you just know it is going to be good.
P.S. Look at all that red!
Could people please refrain from posting pictures of Karen Gillan’s butt? I’m trying to get things done…
Ain’t it always the way? *sigh*
This is a little too true for my liking… *sobs*
Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop cocktail)
1.5 oz Rye Whiskey
1 oz Sake
.5 oz Cointreau
1 dash of Peychaud’s bitters
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a shaker, add ice, shake, and strain.
Yoko Kanno is the composer behind legendary soundtracks such as Cowboy Bebop, Wolf’s Rain, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, and others. This drink was created with the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack in mind, as explained by Eddie, the creator:
I had the idea for this drink after listening to the soundtrack to Cowboy Bebop. It’s easy to do drinks based on a character, location, or a series, but no one has done a drink based on an abstract concept like music. I figured it was high time to have a truly jazzy drink and you can’t get much more jazzy than Rye Whiskey. The name for the drink comes from the composer of the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack, Yoko Kanno.
See you, Space Cowboy.
Drink created and photographed by Eddie Strickland.
the most intense moment of my childhood.
These beautiful timelapse movies from the ISS that keep cropping up got me thinking - I wonder if there are any nice shots of Cornwall (where I’m from) in the archive?
I found this nice page which provides a clickable map indicating the locations of photos taken by the astronauts. There are loads to choose from, and I haven’t been through them all, but here is a selection of ones I thought looked nice:
Cornwall is my homeland and I find these images so beautiful. Kernow bys vykken!
This is simply stunning.
Worth downloading chrome just to see this.
If you can watch this and still believe that an anthropomorphic deity created all of this just for us, then you are a special kind of stupid.
My god, it’s full of stars.
(Story War is a cool card game we’re making that’s like Apples to Apples combined with Dungeons and Dragons, read more about it here.)
Hey, so! Anybody who makes Story War fan art and posts fan art in the #Story War tag will get a Secret Code that can be used on our Kickstarter to get a special edition of the game at a discounted price! And our Kickstarter launches at the end of the month!
Fan art can be of any of the above characters or anything we’ve posted on our blog! Everything is fair game! (You can even feel free to mashup Story War characters with characters from other fandoms, that’s totally acceptable and kind of canon - our game is set in a world that exists between other fictional worlds, so random cameos aren’t totally out of place! You can draw characters fighting, hanging out, or just doing a cool dramatic pose!
Also: We might be including a sheet of some fan art in the game itself as an additional little zine thing packaged with the cards. So if you submit fan art to the Story War tag, we might message you and ask if we can include your art in the game itself!
What if you can’t draw, and still want a chance at the Secret Code?
That’s fine, by reblogging this post and following our blog you would be doing us a huge favor! So, we’ll go through the notes and pick 10 random people who reblogged this post and give them the Secret Code, in addition to anyone who submits fan art to the #Story War tag.
Alright? Cool! Go go go!
(PS: If you’re in NYC, you can come to our playtest on Saturday!)
