Lazy Time Reblog Sunday: Movies Explained For

I came across this gem while looking for something to listen to while crocheting. Yes, I've taken up crochet. No, I'm not very good at it. At any rate, MEF is a YouTube channel run by Jeb (significant pause here) Ediah! Jeb summarizes movies for millennials, realists, slackers, and anyone who might not know who Vincent Price was. Or what a land line is. Damn, I feel old.

Here's his interesting take on A Star Is Born (not the one with Lady Gaga), and be sure to like and subscribe.

Lazy Time Reblog Sunday: Dumpster Dive Film Reviews

Some movies are trashed because they're misunderstood. Most are just trash. Judy Garbage gets to the bottom of a very stinky pile of films for your viewing pleasure and your olfactory salvation with her movie reviewing YouTube channel, Dumpster Dive Film Reviews. My favorites include her review of the Thief in the Night series and her most recent review, Battlefield Earth. Give her channel a look if you're interested and don't forget to subscribe.

Baby Steps for New Authors by Guest Blogger and Author, Emerian Rich

Baby Steps for New Authors
I’ve spoken to hundreds of authors over the years... new, old, mid-career, famous, struggling, you name it. One thing we all have in common is that we were all once where you are. We know how it feels to submit your first work and wait with high hopes by the mailbox (or email inbox) for that special editor’s reply. We know about declines and how sometimes they seem so crippling, you don’t even want to continue. The other link that many new writers have is they are timid and shy about their careers and marketing the “way the pros do it”. Well here are some Baby Steps to get you started.


1. Convince yourself you are an important writer and have something valid to say. Once you’ve accepted your fate as a writer and know you have no choice but to follow your dreams, it will be easier to chip away at making those dreams a reality.


2. Start a List. Lists are your best friend for brainstorming promotion ideas. Carry a little notebook with you to brainstorm while wai…

Lou Tai

My husband recently ran a D&D game where I played a rogue thief by the name a Lou Tai. I didn't play her very well as I'm not much of roleplayer, but the character background was...interesting:

Lou Tai (or Tai Lou, if you are not Shou) is a twenty-one year old Human of half Shou descent through her mother, Lou Mei Mei (or Mei Mei Lou). Her mother is the owner and operator of the Three Jolly Luck Good Time “Inn". And yes, the quotation marks can also be seen on the establishment sign as it is an “Inn” of disrepute. Mei Mei likes everyone to think she is all about the money (her motto is “Money Up Front”), but she is soft hearted when it comes to those who are down on their luck and in need of a good meal. Tai takes after her in that respect. Her father, Ander “Horny” Hornraven, is a Human traveling bard of even more disrepute. He has half a dozen illegitimate children through different women of different races and is a known scoundrel and gallivanter. Tai loves him anyw…

Spa Review of Awesomeness!

“I didn't get a pony for my birthday, but it's all good!” Reviewed March 16, 2017 
Went to the Woodhouse Day Spa in New Orleans for their Woodhouse Experience. I went to their website and read what the package entails because booking a spa package without knowing what I'm getting would just be silly. Good thing too, because I found out the Woodhouse Experience usually includes a bath cure followed by a four handed massage. Having two therapists work on me at the same time creeps me out, so I opted for a 110 minute Swedish instead. The concierge who booked my appointment was awesome. I think it had something to do with the fact I treated her like a human being deserving respect and not a servant born to do my bidding. My spa day started with me arriving at the spa AT LEAST 30 minutes before my appointment began because I work in New Orleans and know that sometimes finding a parking in the city can suck.…
