Very fun.  Who was the male voice (unless that was all voice mod) at the end?

Huh--that makes sense.  Human pattern recognition is a funny thing.

Very cool, particularly with the faerie tale details like the evil stepsisters and the "prince charming" esque beau!  Although unless she's finding out about her mother from a tiny talking milkable cow, I'm guessing it's "diary", not "dairy."

Of course it's the tiny talking cow. why would you assume anything else? all people in fairy lands have that, and it's also how they add cream to their tea,

That's amusing.  And very 8-bit!

How does porn (or prositution, for that matter) differ from any other service job (with an artistic element)?  Or modelling, for that matter?  Either way, you're selling the "use" of your body for some period of time.
I was inspired to write by Elizabeth Stoker's This Duke University Porn Thing, which applies her version of Christian ethics, which I generally like, to the story of Belle Knox, the 18-year-old would-be porn star who has been...

In any field, I think it is generally legally possible (easy, even) to walk away from a contract, forfeiting only what one was to be paid, along with any forfeiture clause that may have been negotiated.

(as posted first on the filker group in facebook; should be here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/179207275435854/530143950342183/?notif_t=group_comment)

So, there are filkers who game. A lot of us do, really.

For that matter, Lisa Padol and I do--quite a lot, really. We got to sf cons and filk in the evening (and sometimes do some gaming during the day; I more usually as the games I like are more suited to sf cons); we go to filking cons and filk a lot (and sometimes do some gaming), and we go to gaming cons and...well, not filk, as there's no filking at gaming cons.

Only, we've been working on an Upcoming Project with Double Exposure, the team that runs cool gaming cons in New Jersey (and which, unlike many gaming con-runners, came out of SF fandom; in fact, one of the distinguishers of their cons is that they feature a con suite, albeit a junk food laden one). And while they were putting the schedule together for Dreamation, the con that ran last weekend, they decided it would be cool to hold a filk in the con suite on Saturday night, and asked if Lisa and I would run it (we said yes, of course). Naturally, given that there was basically no prep time (and one of the filkers who regularly attends the con, Merav, skipped due to having her Interfilk slot next weekend), it was small--four performers swapping songs, plus a few random walk-ins/listeners, but entertaining for all that.

However, Vinnie wants to try it again, this time at the bigger con, Dexcon, running over July 4th weekend.

Which begs the question: Are people interested in going to a con specifically to game during the day and filk during at least one evening? I'll admit, I'm kinda looking jealously over at the occasional HarmUni here (which is a filking con in Cambridge, England, when it runs, sandwitched around a gaming con), and thinking that if things developed well over a few years, we could have something similar, only with better space than one gets from a college campus.

I would definitely go to that sort of con if it were at a convenient location and such.

Well, this is...grim. looks like Unshelved is doing a series on the big ugly D. And Dewey is in denial (which in my experience, is exactly what family tends to do in this situation early on). This looks like it's going to be painful. :(

+Gary McGath Yes, indeed. To me the biggest reason to do Alzheimer's research, really, is that it's so hard on both the person and everyone close to him. But regardless, I agree that combatting it would be a fine use of human energy.

I love it. I mean, sure, explosions, but it's the dialogue that makes it.
