7:39 pm - Saturnine Screams - An Ingress/Niantic Fanfiction
Another in my Ingress/Niantic Fanfiction line

https://docs.google.com/document/d/17avVx6cjegouUHKp6nnjQsswKSXpJVigGD-qr3E2rsE/edit?usp=sharing

Title: Saturnine Screams

Author: docwho2100

Fandom and Pairing: Niantic / Ingress – Dr. Devra Bogdanovich and Gensue Neslin

Rating: PG-13 tiptoeing towards R

Timing: This takes place after the #Voynich event and before #Cassandra NYC

Disclaimer: Niantic/Ingress are the property of Niantic Labs and Google. No infringement intended.


Author’s Note 1 – This is based on the discussion between Devra and Hank in NYC during #Cassandra and what might have gone on that Devra referenced (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ta5NfG6i3hg). This is also based on my interest in biomimicry and Victorian times (yes I like me some steampunk)   :o)


Author’s Note 2 - This is a different type of story and narrative (as Devra alluded to in the video, this will get very dark and bad). There are layers here. I’ve tried to use different colors and fonts and styles to help the layers (a big nod to the format of House of Leaves). Goodluck, Godspeed and May Your Soul Remain Always Yours

9:55 pm - Linking - an Ingress/Niantic Project Fanfiction
So, in addition to the Nikki and Nora and original stuff I've been writing, I took a dive into a new world. This one is different. It is an ARG (Alternate Reality Game) and mobile device App geolocation type game. For this particular fiction, it does help to know the characters and story.  Here is a wiki with info about the story - http://niantic.schlarp.com/ here is the app site http://www.ingress.com/ and here is the ARG site - http://www.nianticproject.com/

I am happy to talk more about this game/ARG if interested - and I will try to write a couple future stories that are easier to follow if you are not following the game - for now, this is a story about a con woman/magician/psychic meeting a quantum biologist/Exotic matter researcher


Here is the story - http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9557045/1/Linking

2:05 am - Transmedia documentary


 
has anyone done a documentary on transmedia using transmedia structure? That would be a cool project and a fun venture to work on/create. Hmmm, how might one start that project????

Ok that sounds really awesome to me I would so be up for that - the research alone for that would be fascinating - and would lend itself to that type of narrative plus a nice example of how nonfiction can use this storytelling method as well

1:42 am - Transmedia and other fun stuff
I have more than a passing interest in this wonderful topic loosely defined as Transmedia.  Since I do not have a job that takes me into that field/sphere (although I so wish I did) - I keep a finger to it by reading what I can find and even trying to discuss (although there are so many in the actually "sphere" that I am like a guppy in the school of fish).  I have been collecting different resources and thoughts at a site - https://sites.google.com/site/transmediaresources/  and a few interesting tidbits here too - http://home.comcast.net/~DOCWHO2000/moreinfo.html

and also a blog related to education and transmedia here - http://transmediaeducation.blogspot.com/

and of course I post thoughts now and then on my other blog

PS - if anyone ever wants to develop a project and is looking for cheap labor - I am all willing to do whatever to be involved :P

10:53 am - Yeah houston we have a problem
This is from my main blog docwho2100.blogspot.com/  - just wanted to share

-----------------------

To manipulate a line from one of Pink's songs

Earth - I think we have a problem

Was listening to a song from P!nk's Funhouse CD (link to music at bottom of entry) - it is a little song, probably overlooked by most - but one of my favorites and lately very appropo. Along with that - I watched the movie Evan Almighty, finally, the other day with my little one and I really, really liked it (it is going on my top movie list).  Others might think hokey or dorky, but I really liked it and I realize, I need to do/make/create more ARKs (if you have not seen the movie and want it spoiled, contact me and I'll tell you what an ARK is).

So - I leave you with the song and lyrics I really like the lyrics and can relate right now, I am so looking for that light she references - although, it is ironic perhaps that I am not religious (so do not promote the Ave Mary A part per se :) I am agnostic (in the true sense of the word - check out atheism.about.com/od/aboutagnosticism/a/what.htm and atheism.about.com/od/aboutagnosticism/a/atheism.htm and

Still - Earth, we have a problem - check out the message in the song

Ave Mary A - lyrics - by P!NK  [Ave Mary A Lyrics On http://www.elyricsworld.com/ ]

Motorcycles in the parking lot
Revving their engines and it just wont stop
Matches and noise screaming in my head
Houston, I think we got a problem

Where does everybody go when they go?
The go so fast I don't think they know
We hate so fast
And we love too slow
London, I think we got a problem

And when I think about it
I just can't think about it
I try to drink about it
I keep spinning

Ave Mary A
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
How did you know to get out of a world gone mad?
Help me let go
Of the chaos around me
The devil that hounds me
I need you to tell me

Child, be still
Child, be still

Broken hearts all around the spot
I can't help thinking that we lost the plot
Suicide bomber and a student shot
Tokyo, I think we got a problem

But for that, they got a pill
If that don't kill you, then the side effects will
If we don't kill each other, then the side effects will
Cape Town, I think we got a problem

Ave Mary A
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
How did you know to get out of a world gone mad?
Help me let go
Of the chaos around me
The devil that hounds me
I need you to tell me

Child, be still

If the darkest hour comes
Before the light
Where is the light?
Where is the light?

If the darkest hour comes
Before the light
Where is the light?
Where is the light?
Where is the light, yeah

Ave Mary A
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
How did you know to get out of a world gone mad?
Help me, help me, let go
Of the chaos around me
The devil that hounds me
I need you to tell me

Child, be still
Child, be still
Child, be still

8:15 am - Look how Far We've come
Alright so the song on my profile right now (World by Matchbox 20) ranks in one of those always in my head these days – haven't gotten it officially yet (come on Now 26 hehe) but when I do it starts going on my mix cds :P

I interpret it as kinda couple things – one the poor person is having a depression breakdown (I have stood outside, crying and had noooooo idea WTF why or how come)… then the song takes this and looks at it in the bigger picture and hey maybe the world is not quite as happy happy anyways

Yes, a sorta depressing song, and no I am not quite in that mood - although I would compare this song to many Kurt Cobain and Nirvana put out trying to catch the "Live means nothing and nothing I do changes things and so blah I don't give a f*ck care attitude" so many have today – which this song is so upbeat it tricks you (and here some might analyze that is symbolic in that people can feel gray and yet be moving pretty fast and all cause life keeps them stepping to the beat of the world not their own) and yet I do like the music and even as the words echo that sentiment).

I also like the chorus line and think about what it is saying – "Let's see how far we've come"

This statement can be looked at in a couple ways.

I think we have come pretty far, but I think there's a lot of places we can still go (and before I can define that any better then I start getting into standards and points of view and my far is fine but she wants far to be further and so on and then it is who is right who is wrong and damn I am no way in hell opening the ethics can of worms today – things have been too ick for me lately to do that.

Progress (or is it) and the people who have money and do not hit me yesterday. I spent the day in Delaware at a children's hospital going through nasty tests with my little one because she has not grown properly for the last two years and the doctor wanted to test to see if she is producing this growth hormone.

Now the progress part comes because I am short (a 4 foot 9 inches tall thank you) and when I was a kid they didn't really have these tests and the possibility of giving the hormone and all that……. And I know there are issues and problems I face being short (I laugh stuff off and make do but yeah I admit, there are things that I have to adjust or can not do that others can… is my life worse for that… hmmmmm)

As to money well growing up my family was on welfare and lived in a depressed part of the world kinda (yes I ran with, was classified by others as white trailer park trash) – we had only the state welfare and they would never have paid for these tests or the drugs and so on… (I am lucky I have a job and my ex has a job to provide coverage for little one). Would I have been in that hospital bed doing those tests so long ago had life been a little different?

And so I have been thinking to myself a lot lately about necessity, advancements, social and economic levels and just well… and well for me I am taking the yeah this is blah but I am going to keep to the positive track and so as the song goes (with a switch of one L word for another) …. Look how far we've come, look how far we've come

Matchbox 20 – How Far We've Come

I'm waking up at the start of the end of the world,
but its feeling just like every other morning before,
Now I wonder what my life is going to mean if it's gone,
the cars are moving like a half a mile an hour and I
and I started staring at the passengers who're waving goodbye
can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?

chorus:
But I believe the world is burning to the ground
oh well I guess we're gonna find out
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come

I think it turned ten o'clock but I don't really know
then I can't remember caring for an hour or so
started crying and I couldn't stop myself
I started running but there's no where to run to
I sat down on the street, took a look at myself
said where you going man you know the world is headed for hell
say all goodbyes if you've got someone you can say goodbye to

I believe the world is burning to the ground
oh well I guess we're gonna find out
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come

Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come

Its gone gone baby its all gone
there is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
well it was cool cool, it was just all cool
now it's over for me and it's over for you
well its gone gone baby its all gone
there's no one on the corner and there's no one at home
well it was cool cool, it was just all cool
now it's over for me and it's over for you

I believe the world is burning to the ground
oh well I guess we're gonna find out
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
oh well, i guess, we're gonna pretend,
let's see how far we've come, again
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come

1:33 am - Subtle
Subtlety

Wow October 1 – funny how time flies, or drags like the heavy anchor attached to a boat. Hmm no idea where that analogy popped from, just kinda popped. Actually a lot of stuff has just been popping lately, good and bad, funny and very very serious. Some very serious thinking… like Madonna's song "Jump" serious….

Work is going along, classes hitting the first major test so will see how the information is flowing from me to students. Working on designing the Advanced Web Design class for the online high school I teach for and still waiting on the other at work to see how my day job changes – subtle changes at work too… lots of shifts, work, family, friends, personal…

Shifts can be good but for me they can also be unsettling. Especially the subtle shifts. The ones that leave me unable to say in words what is different, what changed, but you get to a point and look back and go, "SHIT!" and then you can say what is different. And the thing I really get unsettled about that is, those always end badly for me… I end up losing something, someone, or shifting to a place I wish I hadn't. Although, I have to admit, I've had both kinds of shifting going on for, oh about a year actually… whew how time flies.

Thing is, I'm getting that ick feel in the pit of my stomach. Part of that is this time of year – Oct through December is especially bad, starting with my mom's b day in a few days and this is breast cancer month (a sad coincidence) and well lots of other stuff has happened that I look back and go, these are not things I wish had happened. And just.. I am unsettled and yet in some things very ok and content, yeah I know, wishy washy…

Add to that, I don’t do subtlety well. I often do not catch that double entendre, miss the jokes, don’t make the links, do not read people, or catch the hidden meaning. I take things so at face value I often blunder, bloop, misinterpret and end up with this ick feeling deep in the pit of my stomach that usually leads to something more (Kathy don’t say a word, I will not go there, I promise, no tissue box needing right now… give it a few…)

On other fronts – four day weekend technically coming up, but the colleges are not off so I still have my Friday and Saturday class (may try to do something Saturday night), little one and I may look into doing something on he Monday as the schools are closed (thinking aquarium or such) and Friday is professional development for the high school – I am taking a few neat workshops – I get to make Egyptian cartouche, go for a walk in a marsh and then go hang out at the zoo for the afternoon – wheeeeeee

Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

4:03 am - movie review and this and that
I know, not been updating in a bit - not updated story site, not updated blogs, not updated much... hopefully as things begin to settle I can change all that : )

Bridging program is moving into its final week, yay things have been up and down and quite a ride. Only a couple more weeks til school - still waiting to see how job and other pans out...

Going to take a road trip at end of August - yay for getting away

Saw the movie "Prey for Rock and Roll" Reading the reviews, people either hated it or loved it - like any good indie film. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0307351/combined

I liked it for a few reasons - one, yes I like Ms. Gershon and I think her role here was well done...

It's been out a few years, but it is hard to find. And while it has the macho chick and lezzie theme - that's not what I liked actually. I liked it was a woman who turned 40 and was going WTF am I doing here on this Earth, have I gotten too old and am I ever going to make my dream, be more than I am, rise above the average hum drum i go to work 9 to 5 kinda existence. And damn guess what, the movie dares to end with the answer... No she never ever will... she's an average plain jane (ok gina is hot but you know what i mean) basically not everyone has a glamorous life and some end up just getting through.

Granted the drama is high here although it is supposedly based on true events (which the whole tattoo the bad guy scene was really shivers because again it shows the plainness average, no they do not kill the guy, no there is no justice and no they do not beat him or anything, the main character uses her talents and the revenge is simple in execution yet is an outlet without a lot of violence.

But somehow by the end of the movie, I really can say and I do not say this about many movie's or characters, but I really understood Jackie, by god I did. And I ended up so drawn into the movie, I cried not just at the "sad" parts, but at the end of the movie too… both sad and then a hey Jacki realized where she was and still… fuck it all she went out on stage and played for her $13.25... damn so many of us end up like Jacki, not Gina… : )

Gina has some new thing coming out Sept. 4 – I saw a preview on her MySpace it looks funny

I also liked a lot of the quotes – although overall the dialogue was not that high end, but then again, for me this movie was all about not being high end...

Jacki: A murderer, a rapist and a dyke go into a tattoo parlor...

Ok back to filing bills and the average stuff of life

9:14 am - quick sound bytes
Ack – been buried in stuff – working on day job stuff for August Bridging Program and writing lots of curriculum plus talking to parents who have concerns regarding the program and their students – interacting with parents is one of the hardest things for me I am not a great conversationalist or have the best way with professional etiquette – I know it seems odd but I am not that good in those situations and dread them…

Been teaching meteorology at Cumberland – just finished pressure making rain and winds now we get into the big stuff like hurricanes, thunderstorms, air pollution and such – wheeee

Work on teaching my other class – physical geology – we are about to head into second test covering topics like groundwater, earthquakes and other fun.

Caught some music – a few weekends ago at Wonderbar caught Kathouse and loved them – great cover and original band and a couple of the band members talked to me some,

Then last weekend caught Lez Zepplin – a premiere cover band and such a show – I was up against the stage for part of it and whew—wheee those ladies can rock – the drum solo on Moby dick, the guitarist bowing her instrument – oh man I am drooling.

Need to find music for tonight…..

Went to the Wetlands Institute last weekend with little one – we called it the mud museum because you can walk through the muddy marsh for part of it – she loved getting all squelchy in the mud.

Looks like I may be volunteering at the World Horror con in Salt Lake in March – anyone wanna come????

Job still up and down regarding what I will be doing, unfortunately my certification does not allow for what my supervisor really wanted, so now we drop back and try again :(

My sisters have been up and down – small fires, but nothing tooo major yet (peeks from behind fingers waiting for any moment shift…)

Ok off to work on this that – yay for the weekend.
