Coming Soon to a living room near you (or hopefully near you)! A Middleton House Concert... With a Middleton performing!

Marilyn Middleton Mellor will be performing at our home on April 5th, 2014 7pm. She's been singing professionally for longer than Evan's been alive. She's fronted rock bands, performed at Renn Faires, and toured on the traditional jazz and blues circuits in Great Britain and Europe.
Her last concert at our house was awesome- you can see some videos from it here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1ib2I6BIVAtftAbZQWiFKt9e-j95FR8o  

Don't miss her!   Learn more about her at http://www.marilynmiddleton.co.uk . For More info about the house concert ask here, or email us at music@alyse.org. Feel free to invite others, this is an open event.

Doors open at 6pm, we'll have a variety of appetizers and drinks available. If you want booze please bring your own.

Shopping on amazon for umbrellas today- seriously what the fuck is the difference between a "ladies" umbrella and a "mens" umbrella?  Does it have a special pocket to protect their dicks?

Android Device fun: Sharing this to hopefully prevent someone else from having the frustration I did.

Yesterday I tried sideloading some apps to my phone and tablet (both Android 4+) and I could download the apks but when I went to install them the install button wouldn't work. I tried a number of different ways of getting the apps on the phone including downloading them to my pc and manually moving them over. I tried installing some package/app installers from the Play store etc... nothing worked.

Today after doing some serious searching on the internet  - something tipped me off. I run an app called Twilight that dims and tints my screens in the evening (like F.lux for the PC). Apparently any app that dims your screen can get in the way of loading apk files.  Turned off Twilight and the apps installed with no problem.

FUCKING WEIRD!

Save the Date! A Middleton House Concert... With a Middleton performing! Marilyn Middleton Mellor will be performing at our home on October 20th, 2012.  She's been singing professionally for as long as I can remember, and impressing me (and many others, both professional and not) for that long as well. She's fronted rock bands, performed at Renn Faires, and toured on the traditional jazz and blues circuits in Great Britain and Europe. I can't recommend this house concert enough. Don't miss her!   Learn more about her at http://www.marilynmiddleton.co.uk

Sad to say, that this is so very very true.  I WISH fandom was more what it believed it was, than what it actually is.  Which isn't to say that ALL of fandom is this way. But somewhat like the folks who chastise the middle of the road Christians, or Muslims for not speaking out more against their fringe ... it would be great if the whole fannish community expected more from its fringe members too ....

I really loved this movie ... one of the things that I loved is that it WASN'T really about romance at all, and more about personal actualization and finding ones priorities. I find it frustrating that people equate not wanting to get married at the earliest possible age to "may be gay".

"Look, here’s the deal: It doesn’t matter if you think you’re a nice person. And it doesn’t matter if your tone, attitude, sentiments and facial expressions are all very sweet, kindly and sympathetic-seeming. If you’re opposing legal equality, then you don’t get to be nice. Opposing legal equality is not nice and it cannot be done nicely."
