National Novel Writing Month, that is. Since this is my last Thursday post before the madness begins, I'm going to use the opportunity to let you lovely people know what will be going down in my corner of the web.

I was utterly at a loss of what to blog on this singularly uninspiring day. Until, that is, I logged into my trusty Tumblr and saw this: Yes indeedy, ladies and gents. It's St. Crispin's Day. Feel in need of some rousing? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-yZNMWFqvM Or how about something quieter? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHia1zu_YNI Made my mom watch this because … Continue reading Crispin Crispian Shall Ne’er Go By.

And of course the month I had planned to spend entirely on doing heavy-duty NaNo prep got spent on heavy-duty Young Life banquet prep instead. Somebody send help. Oh, thanks, NaNoWriMo blog!

Here's this month's film score from Adam Young! A week late, but delivered as promised. This one's about Voyager 1, the farthest spacecraft from Earth. It's a lovely mix of dreamy electronic overlays and dark strings, with strong rhythms to keep things *ahem* grounded. I'm sorry, I didn't notice that one until it popped out … Continue reading Music For Drifting.
Today has been one of those lazy, rainy days where all I do is sit around doodling and listening to Hamilton. Pretty fantastic. And then I remembered... oh, hey, it's Thursday. Your blog day. And you have nothing. Oh dear. Twitter tells me, however, that today, the 6th of October, is National Poetry Day in the … Continue reading Hip-Hop Sonnet #1.
Today I would normally be posting Adam Young's film score of the month, but that will have to wait until next week, because something very important is taking place as I type. It's World Ballet Day, people. Five leading companies from around the world are live-streaming all day. And you can watch it here. Classes, … Continue reading World Ballet Day.
