"The impossible thing we never planned for...well, we better come up with a plan." #xfiles #fightthefuture

I love the X-Files: Fight the Future movie so much. It's been a while, and I'm watching it in HD for the first time. Saw it in theaters back in the day.

My wife +Crystal Weaver has accepted a User Experience (UX) position in St. Louis and we have begun the arboreous task of picking up and moving. Staking our claim in St. Louis, O'Fallon to be more precise.

I think #Facebook  users are made at #twitter , because Twitter did a better redesign of Facebook than Facebook did a few weeks ago. And odds are Twitter won't make their crowd wait a few years to get the new design, which was tweaked at the last second to be pretty much the same as before...

Seriously, though, we should have seen it coming... the top bar redesign told us where they were headed design wise. Bigger, cleaner, etc. And that's what the new design is going for. I don't see it as Facebook, but a step in the direction other networks had been going. They are joining a trend that was probably more started with +Google+ rather than Facebook. It's just that media can't remember how to find their Google+ profile.

Sometimes things don't work out as planned...
Pulling up some old screenshots of the last, big film project I was working on. This ditty was the second in a 3-part noir series that I was writing and directing. Unfortunately, I lost the thread on it, and it was not completed in ample time. 

One of these days I will revisit this lovely, dark, gritty, sometimes funny and other times action-packed story. Any more, my brain thinks of envisioning it into a TV or web series, as opposed to the trilogy I was originally working on.

I don't know if +David Kutcher has bragged about this in here or not, but he's doing +Helpouts by Google sessions. As you know, David is awesome at all things +Blogger and his company +Blogger Xpertise is awesome as well. A little one-on-one time with him could really benefit. I'm thinking of doing it myself, except that I recently joined the dark side, more on that later.

PS--no, David did not pay me to share this link. Though, I wish he would have, I could use the money.

I write, act, make movies, music. I do a lot of creating.
Allow me to Introduce Myself
I'm Nathan Weaver, I've been writing for a ridiculously long time, and I'm just starting to get pretty good at the nonsense. I will be posting short stories and novellas here for your reading pleasure. I will also keep you updated in general, and about books in the pipeline. And please leave me comments to let me know how I'm doing.

I also co-own an independent production company, Onyx Dragon Productions.  We've done sketch TV stuff, short films, event videos, wedding videos, commercials, online videos, and we're in post-production on our first full-length movie, The Chalice.  Come Circle us here.

And I write lyrics, and occasionally use my pipes, for Blue Solace.  We make primarily bluesy, folksy music. 

Adds and Add-backs
I'm really bad about falling behind adding-back people who add me to their circles. This often happen, because I don't know why you added me. So the best way to get added back is to write a post share only to me; introduce yourself in it and let me know why you added me.

Here are some circles I have, which you may want to be added to. Share a post only to me to let me know if there are circles here you'd like to be added to.
  • Writers
  • NaNoWriMo
  • Readers
  • Publishers
  • Marketing
  • Movies - Filmmakers and actors land here.
  • Blogger - For users, because I run a Blogger Community.
  • Google - This is reserved  for Google Employees and Pages.
  • Technology
  • Education
  • Artists
  • Musicians
  • Onyx Dragon fans
  • Blue Solace fans
If you want to follow my writing, I'll add you to the Readers circle. If you want to follow my film-making exploits, I'll add you to the Onyx Dragon fans circle. You get the picture. 

What I Post
Honestly, I use Google+ primarily as a means to an author platform, so I post a lot about writing. I usually share these posts with Writers and Readers circles, though. I try hard to share content with the appropriate circles. I do post some about Technology and Education, because I am a Sr. Video Production Specialist working in online education. 
Bragging rights
My short horror screenplay 'Family Secret' won a short film writing contest, two of my short stories have been featured on author Neal James' website, got my short sci-fi story 'The Experiment' printed in The Derby Scribes.

Have been here a couple of times now with a local writers group, and have enjoyed the visits. The food is great, the atmosphere is great and the service is great. Not much to add other than that. I highly recommend you give it a try.

Agree with the other user that this is the largest used book store in Rolla. It has a large collection of books, and you could spend hours walking in and out of rooms and shelves. And the prices are very cheap, which is nice as well. As far as service, I marked it as 'very good', but usually I'm just there to browse. They usually stay out of your way, but can be easily found at the front desk when you need them. I like taking my 4 year old here and looking for books together. They have a decent collection of children's books, plus just about every genre you can think of... from fiction/mystery/horror/sci-fi/fantasy/manga all the way to self-help and non-fiction. Highly recommend it.

Common Grounds has a great menu, decent prices, and a great atmosphere to boot. I don't live in Salem, I'm in Rolla, and don't mind heading over to Salem occasionally to enjoy this lovely place. It is a little difficult to find, at least when I went to it, Google Maps was a little confusing. If you look for the sign, and know that it's around the backside of the building it is in, that helps. One unique element about this place is that they do not fry anything. So when you get fries with a burger, it's baked waffle fries. Which are good. Any rate... go check it out, it's lovely.

Huddle House is certainly not much to brag about. But it is one of the few options in Rolla open all night. I really only recommend their breakfast menu, their lunch menu is pretty poor. The service from the wait staff is always good though, so I have to say that. But then again, I'm usually only ever there in the middle of the night. Best time to be there, really. I recommend this over Waffle House, which may be the only other all-nighter option in Rolla.
