Hi there, good morning from here in my dimension as I write to you. It’s a little about 9:34 am….in a couple of hours we had planned to go to a fundraising event, a “Hafla,” being hosted by Wild Sky Tribal for an event we found out about earlier this year called Steampunk November (https://www.facebook.com/SteampunkNovember/?fref=ts) which is the longest running Steampunk Festival in Texas…until we got message that family was getting together today…something that rarely happens! So….I’ll console myself with this video lol. Family and friends come first! Looking forward to seeing everyone today AND we get to bring the dogs. I really don’t like leaving my dogs for hours on end…they are my family.
*congrats to the Alvarado Animal Shelter! Their first ever Clear the Shelter Event was a great success! YAHOOO!
from their FB page (https://www.facebook.com/alvarado.shelter/?fref=ts) yesterday:
“Today 25 animals found their forever homes we didn’t clear the shelter as we had 3 dogs, 1 cat and 1 kitten left but for our first year we did awesome. Thank you to all the adopters and volunteers that came out to help!!”
24 July 2016 Steampunk November Stage-Raising, $5 Hafla, Hosted by WST!
Today at 1 PM – 4 PM
Starts in about 4 hours · 81° Sunny
Face Off Dance Studio & Event Center
1030 W Arkansas Ln, Ste 300, Arlington, Texas 76013
Hafla means PARTAY! Come to a gathering of dancers and musicians to raise funds for an ENTIRE ADDITION to the SN grounds- ~The Gypsy Camp~
The caravan is going to camp out permanently by the riverbed and requires paths, stage, lighting, electricity… Saloon Girls will be dancing at the festival on the front porch of the FaBuLoUs new saloon, but they need a place to rest their boots, alongside the Air Raiders and traveling Gypsies who wander through the camp.
So come out to a FUN and easy-going event. Bring $5 to get in the door, and then relax on a pillow, stuff your face, watch the dancers, listen to the music and enjoy. If you’re feeling generous, bring a side dish to share. (Saloon girls require a lot of energy so we feed them often.)
So grab your music and $5 to come dance, or just watch and make merry!
Started reading my next Dune book, Dune, The Butlerian Jihad. This quote resonated with me. It feels like Kyle and my reading of this series and these particular books at this time….is well timely. I am seeing more and more about the robotics….they even brought back Battle Bots (which we really enjoy!). My favorite part is usually listening to and watching the commentators Chris Rose and Kenny Florian react to what’s going on in the battle bot fighting ring! Priceless! Sometimes I swear they turn into to 12 year old geeks watching their science experiment go to shit in a spectacularly awesome way!
I encourage “responsible robotics” – especially people who are working on creating humanoids like from the movie Blade Runner right now. When you give “life” you are responsible for what happens when your creation demands equality with it’s maker. Beware the “thinking machines…..science fiction is currently on the path to becoming science fact! Human beings are already a prime example of what can go right and what can go horribly wrong. Program your children wisely “makers.”
Kyle was looking at movie trailers from Comic-con 2016 in San Diego CA this morning and these are some we are both interested in….of course Dr. Strange is on the top of MY list! November is going to be more than just the Presidential Election I’m dreading but grateful will finally be FUCKING OVER with!, the Steampunk November festival, my favorite holiday (Thanksgiving) WITH my family for the first time in FOREVER….zomg November is going to be epic! May be 2017 will be the year we all had hoped 2016 would be but totally wasn’t! I hope so!
