Musical Monday

It’s Monday and time for a bit of music since “Last Week Tonight” had no new episode this week.

I’m often amused over people’s reactions to the most innocuous things, and laugh out loud at those who try to push other people’s buttons when they get offended over nothing. It just goes to show how miscommunications and misunderstandings happen regularly, especially on the interwebs.

For me, speaking with people is always best done in person so that facial expressions and body language can be seen, or vocal tone can be heard and discerned. Much is lost on many levels without face-to-face communication.

This isn’t a complaint or a gripe, it is a personal observation. I think that there are some out there who might agree with this observation if they were willing to be honest with themselves.

I’m not holding my breath.

5 on Friday: Character Class Themes (Re-blogged)

There’s an in-game event which will keep me busy all weekend. I will be live-streaming some of the action today through Monday, so grab some snacks and head over to my Twitch channel.

Eyrie Of An Aries

When I had an in-game guild site up Iโ€™d done a little musical tribute to the four character classes in The Elder Scrolls Online: Templars, Nightblades, Sorcerers, and Dragonknights. With the addition of the Warden class, introduced with the Morrowind / Vvardenfell chapter, I decided to update this post for my scheduled โ€œFive on Friday.โ€

Another new class might be introduced soon, as many have been screaming for it and discussing it in forums. I think a necromancer class is fitting and goes along with the Elder Scrolls storyline and the accompanying lore. Unfortunately, the devs seem more inclined to listen to their favourites and their followers and those people arenโ€™t really playing the game. It has been obvious of late, with all of the glitches and scheduling issues ZoS has been wrestling with since the beginning of the year. โ€œNever mix business with pleasure.โ€ That is a ruleโ€ฆ

Full Frontal Thursday: New Set, Minority Rule, and Gamifying the Midterms

In today’s long-awaited installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam is back with a new set and an app that will reward people for voting.

She also addresses the overt racism of gerrymandering, the oldest trick in the handbook of voter disenfranchisement.

Here are three excellent tunes to tickle your eardrums on this fine Wednesday morning.

Last Week Tonight: Felony Disenfranchisement

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John discusses how people with felony convictions have to struggle to get basic civil rights back. Some states allow non-violent felons to regain some of their civil rights, including the right to vote. Florida is not one of them.

A person with a felony conviction for rape or murder is in a far different class than a person who has a felony conviction for possession of, or distribution of, marijuana. Yet, a white murderer is given a slap on the wrist and a conveyer belt back to “proper” society, while a black drug dealer gets shoved in a hole for the rest of their lives.

No surprise there.

Rod Run to the End of the World

This event is one which we have attended and participated in for the past three years: the Rod Run to the End of the World. It is an enjoyable event for those of us who love the allure, artwork, and sheer poetry of the classic, American-made automobile. This is the 35th time that it has been held, and the town which hosts it has changed very little in those 35 years.

Other than the vehicles, the only other reason to attend is for the opportunity to taste some of the best barbecue this side of the Rockies! Terrell’s Texas BBQ, out of Portland, Oregon, is slow-cooked to bring out the juicy tenderness of ribs and brisket. Award-winning and succulent, even southern-fried rednecks can’t help but glomp down on a spicy ‘Hot Mama’ and smile! Nomnomnomnomnom…

Here are just a few of the pictures I took today. The sun came out after some refreshing rains; we even had a thunderstorm blow through, clearing away the dryness and bringing much-needed fresh air and moisture. Very nice and relaxing.
