Life, a Miscellany

These last two weeks, I’ve lacked inspiration and I’ve had little time to do much besides getting the new Starrynight website ready to go live. You can take a peek at the test site here. I still have a lot of content to move but I don’t anticipate the style and navigation to change drastically. […]

Weekend Wonders

In a flurry of happenings this weekend, I didn’t get a chance to post about Saturday. I finally saw the Indianapolis Zoo, which was quite enjoyable. Tim and I were there when the gates opened, so we had the run of the place. We encountered some quirky emus. One seemed to think that a map […]

Your Corp Just Melted My Brain

And this happened over and over and over again. From the bottom of the pack to Phantom, I enjoyed all of the shows. I loved Madison Scouts’ musical selection and really enjoyed Boston Crusader’s show, Neocosmos. I loved that the Blue Coats sustained the “On the Waterfront” theme throughout their show, The Knockout. There were […]
