The Week That Was...Last Week

Hey gang, for once a post that is out at the right time as for once I didn't forget to make it or get too lazy to make it. I think one of those reasons accounts for why the weekend posts were late. I'm going to choose that to be the case anyway. Though I guess as well for once life distracted me. It was bound to happen eventually I guess. It has a shit way of doing that to you. Anyway, let's get on with the show.

Tuesday was a story told from the perspective of my wolf teddy Zevi. It was widely agreed in the comments that he is adorable and I was right to not throw him out or give him away given that he was a present from my first girlfriend.

Wednesday was my response to being tagged...five times. Though I only responded to two in the post, and I plan on doing a podcast/recording of the other...33 questions this week. Look forward to hearing me drone on and on and on. Though I know at least one person who likes the sound of my voice.

Thursday in a break from tradition (that is going to be rectified this week) rather than talk about something utterly depressing I talked a bit about my teenage years, and how I was actually quite well behaved during them. Though I suppose since I talked about being depressed it may count towards my tradition of making Thursday depressing.

Friday I tried to spread some awareness about a South African couple who are being held captive by Somali pirates and have been for the past 14 months. Thank you to anyone who helped out in any way, those that didn't, well, you're entitled to do what you want, we're cool.

Saturday I still didn't have my story restored so instead posted some high res gaming backgrounds/awesome pictures. It was agreed they look awesome.

Sunday I posted not one, but six songs that got me through a recent depressed period I suffered. There was two depressing songs I listened to in an attempt to make myself cry (didn't work, more on that later) followed by six songs that can be used to cheer you up. Sadly there was no Livin' On A Prayer involved.



For everyone who requested it.

Have a good week guys.

  3. I'm just waiting to hear these podcasts. Then you can have me as a guest and we can all figure out why I'm a writer/blogger and not a podcaster!

    1. Haha I'd love to have you guys as a podcast partner but it's tricky as Hell to do when it's two people far away from eachother.

    2. That is one way to do it as long as it records the audio too so you can rip it.

  4. You have fixed the lack of "living on a prayer" problem. The world is right. I am also looking forward to the podcasts. If I didn't hate my voice so much, I might send an audio shout out to ya.

    1. If you were taken by pirates I'd buy a gun and go Rambo on them.

    3. Two guns, a knife, and some serious Ramboing. I don't actually know what I would do but despair would be involved.

  11. Hey, Mark. I wonder how many writers are inherently depressed people. I know I am. I can't do it in every area of my life - as my husband and house's condition will attest - but I've learned to avoid those pieces of music that make me depressed. Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper" gets turned off whenever it's on the radio, I can't let myself listen to Sarah McLaughlin and there are others. Take heart. The good news is, it doesn't last and can frequently lead to interesting stories and vignettes. LOL

    1. Really? I love Don't Fear The Reaper. If a song depresses me I'm probably more likely to listen to it if I'm depressed. I think that the best artists, be it painters or writers, have known levels of sadness and depression and so know how to create true beauty. Look at people like Van Gogh, he had mental issues so serious he took his own life, but he also saw and created such beauty.

  14. That's an interesting way to dealing with all the tags.

    I might just ignore mine and hope no one remembers...
