In case you missed it yesterday, Part Time Monster has a Pinterest account, and there is some good stuff there. Here are a couple of examples:
I’ve been invited to build a few boards of my own for the monster, so you know it’s going to get even more fun over there than it already is, hehehe.
If you have a Pinterest account of your own, you really should follow Part Time Monster. Kinda like how you should follow @Sourcererblog on Twitter. We love it when we find bloggers we know on other social media.
Good day, everyone! As a lot of you probably already know, the first trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy premiered back on February 18. I was already looking forward to this movie, but the trailer drives it home for me that this is going to be a funny, action-packed space adventure that Marvel is quite bold for making. This property and these characters are not terribly well known, but I certainly hope they will be after this.
The main characters are quite the eclectic mix—Peter Quill/Star-Lord (half-alien prince and leader of the team), Gamora (the most dangerous woman in the universe and daughter of Thanos*), Drax the Destroyer (also strongly tied to Thanos), Groot (humanoid tree), and Rocket Racoon (genetically engineered rodent person with a serious love of firearms). It’s pretty awesome that we’re finally getting to see the cosmic side of Marvel in a film, as well as some of its myriad alien races and characters. I’m especially eager to see the Kree Accuser, Ronan, among several others. The film is directed by James Gunn and has one amazing assortment of actors attached to it.
One of my favorite things about blogs is that you can use the posts themselves to have conversations, if you can find another blogger or two to play along. Part Time Monster has three versions of “House of the Rising Sun” today, so I thought, hey, why not post three more 😉
This is White Buffalo singing with the Forest Rangers, who do a lot of music for the FX series Sons of Anarchy. Worst sound quality of the six, but still my favorite overall performance. It gets bonus points because White Buffalo’s drinking a beer while he sings it.
This song has been playing in my head, probably because I’ve been interacting a bit with Buffalo Tom Peabody over the last few days. I like the song because it tells a story with a peculiar combination of humor and nostalgia.
