An Tíogar, Kill da Wabbit, and the clematis and roses are starting

It’s beginning to look a lot like “oh fuck, not this again”-mas… After a while of vacillation, work began today on the new maQLu album. Well, a new album of some sorts, we’ll see if it goes under the maQLu banner or not when I get closer to the...

New pathway in the garden, dance videos, future clarinet lessons

So… it’s Saturday… time for another blog… As I posted on Monday, for now I’ve put Under My Skin on hiatus. Afterwards, I was starting to think maybe I made a mistake, but oh well. Not enough of a mistake to make me feel like writing a new episode...

Under My Skin podcast now on hiatus… again…

Hey all… so, I skipped doing Under My Skin the last couple weeks and I’m skipping it again this week and honestly, I’ve rewritten the damn thing 4 or 5 times, but it just seems pointless at this time. Here’s an excerpt from what I wrote in the most...

Blog adjustments, pen names, etc.

Well, what a week… lol… You may notice I don’t have posts for a couple of my podcasts anymore. The one I was doing with my friend? We decided to axe it. It was fun for us, but not really aligned to our respective career goals, so it’s been...

TIL: “West Brit” and some other FB fun and complaints

Shopping and loading up the china cabinet

It’s that time of the week… Well, I heard back from the local university, weeks after I decided I didn’t want to waste money going, lol… accepted, of course, with a shitload of transfer credits (as far as the university is concerned, I’m straight into third year, though the...

Small rant about fashion cycles, plus some spring flowers

Well, I missed last Saturday’s life update post for reasons I mentioned on this week’s Under My Skin. Which is to say, stupid reasons, because I inadvertently gave myself insomnia Friday night after binging on chocolate when my tolerance for caffeine is gone and even my sugar tolerance is...

Book of the week: The Sound of Paper

Julia Cameron’s The Sound of Paper: Starting From Scratch is a sort of companion book to her bestseller The Artist’s Way. The book unfurls over the course of one of Cameron’s annual journeys to her then-summer home of Taos, New Mexico from her then-usual home of Manhattan. Cameron and...
