Belatedly returning this as the front-page pin...

with 45 minutes left till the ball drop. Nothing more to deal with for the rest of the year.

Introducing what I call... "Disco Dixwell".

And no wonder, thanks to the festivities he attends every summer at Adanson Manse/House 4270 in Marigot, Dominica. After all, Samson Dixwell—the main character in our forthcoming Unspooled series, portrayed below—loves a lot of music. Go get 'em, rock 'n roll raccoon!

Coming soon to +Flickr, +Redbubble, +DeviantArt.com, FurAffinity, Inkbunny, and +Teespring.

(Commission by +Miracle Chan, a.k.a. NanoButt [nanobutt.deviantart.com] or [formerly] Kiwi Dogs; drawn c. mid-June 2015, and first seen on a G+ Furry+ post and dA page which are no longer available; saved on my hard drive since June 30, 2015. Yuki transferred ownership rights of this portrait to me immediately after release, and also granted me permission to sell it as long as he's credited. [Hopefully, others in the fandom will learn from and follow this example.])

This month's penultimate postcard comes from one of Hans' buddies; looks like a place the European Dixwell raccoons would visit.

So long for now, thanks for all the Babelfish, R.I.P. Ripples and circle sharing...

and whatever happened to the good old Sparks feature from the Plus' early years? (If any of you used this feature, please send feedback demanding its return.)

G+ gets five years, this Captain gets four...and (as long as the deal and its effects don't intervene) it's not over yet.

In around two hours (or a bit earlier if I'm lucky), Year 5 of this feed (as well as Year 6 of this service) begins with a creative request from this Furry+ moderator, plus a musing on one of +CBS This Morning​'s highlights today. Later, it's off to the next box-office recap, fan piece, and Erika postscript--along with another newcomer to my Photographers circle, and an extra or two on the side. By afternoon, it's back to the Unspooled revamp; stay tuned for another Marigot Notebook entry. And by evening, it's off to the OneTab treasure, along with details on last Tuesday's movie marathon, and an anniversary panaroma courtesy of +Luke Wroblewski​ himself. Also on the way: A cat with a green tail on SketchBook X, plus details on Adanson's Montréal holdup.

In layman's terms: It's business as usual--and just as June is ending.

Once again, thanks to all who have made G+ what it has been all this time. May we live to see it turn ten (unless they shutter it), and may I keep sailing (unless the deal intervenes).

If you've seen Zootopia for yourself (as I already have, twice on the big screen), then please let me know in the comments. And remember what Judy taught you, kids: Change...starts...with you!

And of course, see you next week at +Johnny Hibner​​​'s community (https://plus.google.com/communities/114017653590957809106; linking to it on his behalf).

Expressing condolences to the family and friends of those killed and injured in Brussels, Lahore, Kyushu, Ecuador, Orlando, and Istanbul.

To donate to Erika relief funds, please visit gofund.me/da-erikarelieffundwww.opm.gov.dm/?p=1058, or www.youcaring.com/red-cross-of-dominica-421257.

And for an overview on the deal everyone hates to death, let the +Electronic Frontier Foundation​ be your guide. (Details, as always, in the coming days.)

This is your fellow Captain speaking. Till we meet again, it's diè wåde, ovwa and out... #AndThen... (We'll miss you, +Vic Gundotra​.)

The view in this leg's last selection bears a striking, uncanny resemblance to the old slums of the colonial West Indies--thousands of miles away.

Since I don't want to overshare, I'm putting this tour to rest until our next Marigot Notebook entry. (You'll see why when I get to it.)

See you next month, next post.

In around two hours (or a bit earlier if I'm lucky), Year 5 of this feed (as well as Year 6 of this service) begins with a creative request from this Furry+ moderator, plus a musing on one of +CBS This Morning​​'s highlights yesterday. Later, it's off to the next box-office recap, fan piece, and Erika postscript; details on today's big announcement from WDAS; and an extra or two on the side. By afternoon, it's back to the Unspooled revamp (after another missed day); stay tuned for another Marigot Notebook entry. And by evening, it's off to the OneTab treasure, along with details on last Tuesday's movie marathon, and an anniversary panaroma courtesy of +Luke Wroblewski​ himself. Also on the way: A cat with a green tail on SketchBook X, plus details on Adanson's Montréal holdup.

In layman's terms: It's business as usual--as we head into July. (Again, I have declared today a write-off.)

Once again, thanks to all who have made G+ what it has been all this time. May we live to see it turn ten (unless they shutter it), and may I keep sailing (unless the deal intervenes).

Welcoming this last Photographer into Fab 3...

with over half an hour to spare before July begins. Greetings from the Brass City!

Speaking of a term called "Mountain View" (which describes this postcard): G+ turned five on Tuesday--and the feed you're reading right now turned four.

Day 1460

Or, Day 119 of Zootopia's U.S. release--and 23 days since the Region 1 DVD/Blu-ray premiere.

Good night, folks--as the month of June comes to an end. Alas, I couldn't be with you until this hour, because I was planning to resume in the morning (but fell asleep till after one); tried again in the afternoon and evening (but was inundated by the usual research); and, as a result, had to settle for another late-starter. (My end-of-month commitments on +Wikipedia​, as well as the bimonthly status report on +DeviantArt.com​, didn't help either.)

Then again, at least I delivered a heck of a show thanks to G+'s fifth anniversary--and my feed's fourth. Otherwise, resigning myself to another fan piece, postcard trio, and a repeat of last night's tasklist before midnight. Either that, or your Captain really got burned out on said anniversary parade. Business as usual, indeed....

In tonight's postscript...

Now that I've thought about it, how about I play Parchis' "Cumpleaños Feliz" from my Unspooled stockpile (and two earlier re.BUILD concerts) right now? (Helps that my birthday's next month, too; now you know!) You can find it on GPlay or Amazon (select countries only); purchase links to follow in a subsequent post.

And it wouldn't be G+'s fifth anniversary--at any rate--without a snapshot of you-know-where...

in this fitting end to an exhilarating milestone run. (Originally posted on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11.)

The architecture on the right reminds me of the modern-day Commonwealth Caribbean's. (Amazing that was from earlier last century to begin with.)

Introduction
"It is not about what is good or what might be popular, it is about what I feel like sharing. It's simple that way."

Author, publisher, digital rights advocate, Web "nomad", and pop-culture geek (for hire) residing in Waterbury, CT; originally from the Commonwealth of Dominica. "Winner" of 2012's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with a project originally titled Marigot Magic, which now bears the name of Unspooled.

Responsible (through his Constitution Books imprint) for an Amazon-exclusive re-issue of Gadsby: Champion of Youth, a 1939 lipogram by Ernest Vincent Wright. Wrote an accompanying behind-the-scenes essay, Skipping Fifth, especially for this edition. (A revised version was published in February 2013.)
 
Currently:
- setting up a new map on QGIS, based on the base 20 system;
- setting up the Dixwell Dossier, a Referata site dedicated to the Marigot Magic project.
