neonvincent: For general posts about politics not covered by other icons (Uncle V wants you)



Happy 4th of July AKA American Independence Day! To celebrate, I'm sharing the following links to my 4th of July entries over at Crazy Eddie's Motie News. If nothing else, my readers can listen to patriotic music while drinking red, white, and blue cocktails.

I'll return to posting top posts and saved comments tomorrow or the day after, as I might post something fannish tomorrow instead. In the meantime, my American readers can enjoy the holiday.

As I mentioned yesterday, It's time to get back on track with my weekly summaries, although I'm planning on making up for lost time and posting them daily. Here is the first week of posts from Crazy Eddie's Motie News in between the monthly theme post, which I mirrored here yesterday, and the Happy Wester post, which I mirrored here a week ago Sunday.

NaBloPoMo October 2012


neonvincent: For posts about geekery and general fandom (Shadow Play Girl)



I know I've been participating in Nablopomo for a long time when the monthly themes repeat themselves. Here was the theme from October 2010, when I was using my LiveJournal as my Nablopomo blog.
Greetings, NaBlo bloggers! The theme for October blogging is PLAY. It's a versatile word: you can play a game or a musical instrument; you can be in a play; and when you're steering wheel jiggles it's definitely got too much play. What does the word PLAY mean to you? It may take all month to find out.
Now, here's the theme for May 2012.
So what is the NaBloPoMo theme of the month?
PLAY

This month, because we're in a frisky mood, our theme for NaBloPoMo is PLAY. We'll be remembering your favourite games from childhood, talk about ways you still bring that spirit of playing into your life as an adult, and even look at whether you're a gracious or sore loser.

Make sure you head down to the storage room to reminisce about old toys. And you may even want to pull out the board games one night or create your own online game this month to play with your readers.
...
So start thinking about different ways you played this week.
If it weren't for LiveJournal being the target of DDoS attacks that take it offline from time to time, I'd be tempted to move my posts over there. Instead, I'll keep them here on Crazy Eddie's Motie News. As for what I'll do with it, I think I'll keep posting music, except that now I can also post instrumentals. I can also post videos, even if they don't have music. After all, don't videos "play?" Also, I'll be a good environmentalist and recycle the theme images from last time, which lack either month or year. I get bored with the typewriter logo that Nablopomo seems to have settled on once it moved over to BlogHer.

I completely missed reposting any of my posts from Crazy Eddie's Motie News for March on the Nablopomo theme of Whether. Bad dog, no biscuits. I'll get around to organizing and posting linkspams from last month eventually. In the meantime, I'll resume my regular weekly summaries of the Nablopomo posts for April. This month, the theme is poetry. Here's what I wrote on April Fools Day.


From Nablopomo on BlogHer:
So what is the NaBloPoMo theme of the month?
POEM

In honour of National Poetry Month in April, we've made the theme POEM -- which can go in a multitude of directions. First and foremost, you can try your hand at writing some poetry. We'll be presenting a few fixed forms as well as prompts for free forms. Make a personal goal to write a haiku-a-day, write an entire post in rhymed couplets, or argue the merits of Pinterest... in sestina form.

We'll be writing about our reactions to poems -- which poems have come up at important moments in your life? Which poems do you return to again and again? Which poems have changed your mood, given you comfort, or made you want to be a poet yourself?

We'll spend the month looking at reflections of poetry in nature and social situations. And we'll be featuring YOUR poetry weekly. So get your poem on.
When I first read the theme and description, I considered not participating, as I'm not big on poetry. I especially had a hard time squaring the theme with a blog about sustainability, science, and politics, although "poetry in nature" might work. Then I realized that there were some forms of poetry that I liked, limericks and song verses. Most limericks wouldn't be fit for a family blog, but I can always find a good song for my posts. So, I'm participating again this month.
The songs that I've featured so far are:
There will be more next week, as I already have another post up.

Happy reading and happy listening!

NaBloPoMo February 2012


I've been continuing my blogging for Nablopomo over at Crazy Eddie's Motie News this past week. The entries that conform to the "Relative" theme, in terms of comparison, finding the connection between two unrelated things, or just spouting my opinion, are:

A sustainable Super Bowl?

Newt Gingrich and the Republican National Committee demagoguing Agenda 21

A moment of science

Two Super Bowl ads about Michigan

Worth 1000 words on Santorum

Two Deep Forest fan videos

Halfway though winter, it finally looks like it

sustainability_spheres

In the previous digest, I promised "global and national environmental issues, local (Michigan and Metro Detroit) sustainability issues, and Tea Party screw-ups." I'll do the first one, as I just posted an entry on that general topic.

Next Media Animation on the Keystone XL pipeline

Next Media Animation on Thanksgiving food inflation

Phil Plait on saving Earth from asteroids

Nebris and I have a conversation

A video gift from a student

Yes, I posted that one before. It's worth seeing again. Besides, I'm an environmentalist; I recycle.

The village of Wukan, China, in open revolt

The situation in Wukan escalates

More paranoia about Agenda 21

You'll see this one again, as it's about Tea Partiers screwing up.

Next Media Animation thinks low birth rates in the U.S. and China aren't all good

Next Media Animation on Canada leaving the Kyoto Protocol, plus a Rick Perry joke

With that last entry, the topics complete the circle, as the first and last are about Canadian tar sands.

Nate Silver displays Newt Gingrich's unimpeachable conservative credential

It's beginning to look a lot like Gingrich

You're a mean one, Newt Gingrinch

I know I've posted the above two links before. Hey, I'm an environmentalist. I recycle.

Perry fails to make VA GOP primary ballot

Now Gingrich misses the Virginia ballot

More political links tomorrow, most likely on either local issues or how Tea Partiers are screwing up sustainability.  Actually, there's a big overlap between those two categories; just Google Janice Daniels of Troy to see what I mean.

Now, off to play Star Wars: The Old Republic with my wife.
