"Fallen Blossoms" Before and After


Just thought I'd throw in these two snapshots, one taken just as "Fallen Blossoms" was ignited, and one as it was dying down.


And as long as I'm sharing odd stuff . . .

Here's a video Marianne found of a tool-using octopus.  What a rich time this is to be alive!  You can read the explanation here.

The octopus is way cool.

Strange Swanwick link of the day:

Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Author

Men who argue Neil Gaiman is overrated.

Hah! I saw that, Ken! And thought it was pretty funny. As I suspect Neil would as well.

Some of the other reader characterizations, though, would rip off the author's skin and rub salt on what remains. So I guess I ducked another bullet.

But, yeah, octopi rule.
