Sweet!
 
Well, in the "Dream Come True" category, today it was announced I will be playing Dr Forrester's daughter in the MST3K reboot that's on Kickstarter NOW! Please click below to donate so we can make 12 episodes happen!

I watched MST3K with my brother religiously as a kid. The reason Joel thought of me for this was because I was in Salt Lake City at the con and I went up to get a picture with him because I wanted to rub it in my brother Ryon's face. So thanks Ryon! You got me my dream job! Please help me all the episodes happen so I can rub it in his face a LOT! :)

I've seen some people complain that this is more a cash grab and the other cast members want nothing to do with it.

As much as I like Jalopnik, Oppositelock, Car Buying, Flight Crew, and Kitchenette, I will no longer be visiting any of those sites: http://bgr.com/2015/07/17/how-gawker-helps-blackmailers/
Gossip website Gawker regularly walks the fine line between entertaining, edgy content and completely unethical, sleazy trash. On Thursday, the website went way, way over that line by helping a bla...

Eh, this is right within Gawker's morals. They were always a "harder core" gossip site (when compared to TMZ and classic Perez Hilton). Their subsidiaries, while fairly independent, are sadly dragged down with them. The only reason that they came out on the correct side of GG was to protect journalism in general, right alongside VOX and AOL.

Was Gawker wrong and terrible? Yes! Should people withdraw support? Yes!

But I'm not going to pretend to be disappointed with a site doing what it always does.

I wish we could send a message to malls that they shouldn't do this by avoiding them completely during the holiday season, but that just hurts the businesses more than the mall itself.
 
Everyone knows that a handful of major retailers now choose to open on Thanksgiving, but most smaller businesses have remained closed on the holiday — whether it was out of a desire to enjoy the day, or simply because the extra expense of paying people to…

I know how to fix this: pass a law that the business as well as property owners AND all shareholders have to be on hand to answer public questions for the entire duration of working hours on the holiday. Every shareholder. EVERY. LAST. FUCKING. ONE. Or fines equal to the value of the entire commercial property are assessed for every second missed.

If any of you have a 3DS, Chibi-Robo Zip Lash is a rather cute game, especially when you find snacks, which are all real snacks from around the world.

Pocky!  :)  Though, I recently tried the Matcha flavor, and I was neutral.

+Niko M has been trying to keep a blue field over Calvert Memorial Hospital since Tuesday night, but it keeps getting taken down. What follows is the story of how we tried to make layers in the shape of a heart over Calvert Memorial Hospital instead, and we did, and then those got taken down too.

Yesterday we decided to make some field art to honor one my favorite #Resistance agents -@Taterbug. Back when +Nate M  and I were Enlightened agents, we encountered @Taterbug for the first time via Comm while we were killing some of her portals and she told us we’d better stop or she would “mash us”.  It was at that point that I decided she was my favorite agent/person/tater EVER and I tell her that every time I see her.  As she’s currently in the abovementioned hospital, we decided a nice, blue heart to cover over her would let her know that the #SoMDResistance loves her and wishes her everything good in life.  With that, Op TaterBugLove was born.  

I sat down yesterday and did a little drawing, trying to figure out a way that we could make a heart incorporating St. Mary’s, Charles and Calvert counties – SoMD territory.  After a couple of flawed draws, I figured out which portals we could use to make something that resembled a heart (a very blocky, angular heart).  And, with few (but dedicated) agents to cover a large area, we decided to make use of some #SBULs  to expedite fielding.

Shortly after getting the plan drawn up and the key list made, I had enlisted +Arch Angel (@ArchAngel) and +Tina Gass  (@funtimecruisers) to farm the needed keys in St. Mary’s county and +Solomon Carpenter  (@MasterSolomon) to farm what keys were needed in Calvert.  +Nate M (@TotalDemolition) and I grabbed a couple keys to our anchor down south.  

We met up for a quick key exchange and briefing on Sunday prior to the 3pm checkpoint that we had decided on +Arch Angel  (@ArchAngel) and +Tina Gass  (@funtimecruisers) after clearing a few friendly blockers in St. Mary’s county.  A quick key exchange amongst good friends turned into an hour long key exchange that was incomplete.  Unfortunately, we didn’t realize it was incomplete until everyone was in position…. So we missed checkpoint.  We decided to soldier on though because these fields were about showing our #TaterBugLove  rather than about a cycle score.  

After a lot of driving, one flat tire (we’ll get you some fields next time, +Kevin G.  – PROMISE!), some signal issues, a certain mixture of fear, trepidation, and annoyance, and the most hilarious and ridiculous Zello log ever, we made our heart.  And it was beautiful.  In total, the op netted us just shy of 42K MU, but again, it was the message that counted.  

The fields were comprised of four sets of layered fields, with agents at the anchors throwing to the spine portals.  This gave the fields a stained glass quality, which we liked.  +Arch Angel  (@ArchAngel) was at the Western anchor and threw links for two of the sets.  +Ben Dayley was positioned at the Eastern anchor to throw links assisting in the creation of the other two sets.  One of our newer members, +Tina Gass  (@funtimecruisers) was located at the central anchor and responsible for closing up the northern two sets of fields.  +Nate M (@TotalDemolition) was positioned at the Southern anchor and prepped the southern two sets for fielding.  They were taken down about 3 hours later by @JakBauer.  

@Taterbug, if you get a chance to read this, just know that even though our fields are dead and our heart is “broken”, we still have much #TaterBugLove  !  

<3,

#SoMDResistance
