Dis, Dat, And De Udder

June 5th has become a Steelhead Holiday. The typist's real life birthday is on the 5th, and has held an event in world for the past three years, just for fun. This year, it'd be held on a Friday, which is usually a Steelhead Official Event.....and since Fuzzday is now an official Steelhead holiday.....why not? The theme will be Steampunk Pirates. Figured it'd be best to announce it now, so that all the creative types can work on something cool for the event. And because it's the typist's birthday, he wishes to make the event a RFL event. So, the normal amount of tips you would normally place in my tip jar, please put in the RFL kiosk that'll be available. It's a cause he strongly believes in.

Will be absent from the grid the next three days. Typist will be moving to his new abode. And it's a nice abode, too. Sent Lunar Tensai's favorite songs that I've played in the past for her event on Friday.

Next Steelhead Adventures, after the one that's being featured on the Steelhead Adventure's blog, will be another crossover story. This one with a roleplaying group in world. More on that, later.

That is all.

Just To Get To Know Me

Just thought I'd toss this post out, for the heckuvit. Plus, it seems we all have a common bond, you may relate to this.

I have a high IQ. I'm no Tensai, but I do have one. Mostly, it shows in my creativity......although recently I think it's been faltering, but I think that's because I've been writing when I've been extremely tired. Forgot to renew my memberships, but I am in the associates program of the Writers Guild of America and a member of the Puppeteers of America (renewing both, soon).

At times, I tend to act without thinking it through. Mostly when it's something I'm passionate about. However, in the end, I don't feel apologetic for those actions.

Prefer watching animation, fantasy, science fiction. Not too much on the mainstream stuff, other than CSI. Doctor Who has always been my favorite. Mostly, stuff I watch are in season sets on DVD. Best way to watch something like Lost.

I collect comics.....mostly, DC. Been getting Fables in trade paperback collections. I also get Doctor Who from IDW comics.

I have high blood pressure. At times, it's at the point to where people ask how I'm still standing. I don't feel any different than the norm. It has, at least three times, dropped way low to the point where I need to sit on the floor (as I'm wobbling too much in the chair to stay still).

Second Life, in particular Steelhead City, Caledon, New Babbage, and other Steampunk venues, has proven to be a terrific place for a writer's creativity. And for the record, I do have a script idea called Steelhead Adventures......only legal issue is that original avatars (those not already based on an outside source, ie, Girl Genius and Doctor Who) are the intellectual properties of the typists who've created those avatars. Meaning, majority of the budget if a film is to be made, would be to pay individuals for use of said avatars (not to mention "I don't like that actor who played the character based on my avatar"). Still.......would be kind of fun if that actually did happen. Best way to do it would be on green screen. Keep picturing the tagline being "A Different Time. A Different World. A Different Adventure".......maybe I'll save that subject for a different post.

That's all I can think of at present. Just rambling on about nothing.......enjoy
