This fascinating, brilliant 20-minute video narrates the history of the “Amen Break,” a six-second drum sample from the b-side of a chart-topping single from 1969. This sample was used extensively in early hiphop and sample-based music, and became the basis for drum-and-bass and jungle music — a six-second clip that spawned several entire subcultures. Nate Harrison’s 2004 video is a meditation on the ownership of culture, the nature of art and creativity, and the history of a remarkable music clip.

This afternoon, I told my husband “You know what I’d do with the upstairs storage room if it wasn’t being used for litter boxes?”
He said, “Fill it with doll heads.”
I stared for a second and he continued, “That way, if we get hit by a truck, whoever has to clean out our house will come across a room of just doll heads. The rest of the house would be completely normal. There’d be no other doll parts, no indication that we were into dolls, just hundreds of doll heads. You could string a net across the door so you could really cram them all the way to the ceiling. Whoever had to deal with our stuff would be wondering about this the rest of their lives.”
And that is why I married him.

My mother says that fanfiction doesn’t count as reading because “it isn’t nearly as good as the stuff that’s published. You’re not going to find something online that will win a Booker Prize.”
Please reblog if you count fan fiction as reading, or if the fanfiction you’ve read is equally as good as published novels. I want to see the figures.

Depends on the fanfic, but totally. I like to think my fanfic helps me with all my writing.
Relevant, the Booker Prize in 1990 went to A.S. Byatt’s Possession which is about people obsessed with a specific writer. And was written as a response to John Fowles The French Lieutenant’s Woman.
So a response fic about academic fangirling won the Booker Prize.
Uploading some old stuff I did for now defunct gaming magazine which was read by White Wolf to make sure it actually didn’t contradict metaplot. so its semi-canon!
IT IS ALSO INCREDIBLY VIOLENT. You want werewolves ripping things apart? You’re in luck! THERE IS SO MUCH BLOOD.
seriously, I forgot how violent this was, its been years since I’d seen this file.
There’s two chapters up. I think there’s at least 12 more that will go up as I get time to format them properly. They’re written, the formatting is just a mess.
