More Free Music for Projects

I can’t believe I didn’t include this last week. Okay, so this may be a little boring for people who aren’t thinking about creating videos or setting their home movies to music, but, boring people with this blog has never stopped me from sharing something before, so I won’t let it now.  This free and […]

Uncle Walt’s Health Tips for Men

Seriously, health tips from Walt Whitman himself. I think about health a lot, because I’m overweight.  My cardiologist would like me to lose at least 20 pounds, preferably more.  He just doesn’t quite buy that my wife, being a good Southern woman, expresses her love for me through food.  And, she really loves me.  Seriously. […]

SysAdmin Screencasts

Not my usual Friday Fun, but great for system administrators trying to get ahead. And, not too bad for power users trying to figure out some of what the professional system administrators are talking about when they’re trying to talk over your head. What I’ve got for you this week, gentle readers, are “bite-sized” system […]

Science Fiction Short Films

Also, they’re free. In 2015, Sploid, a sub-site of Gizmodo, had a short film festival. Just to be clear, that’s a festival of short films. There were 21 films, many of which include some actors you may recognize. All the films were creative and, frankly, pretty amazing. And, let’s face it, it’s Friday and you’re […]

Positive Thinking

I think everyone could use a little positive thinking this week. I know I sure could! I have read more than my fair share of self-help books and the one thing they all mostly have in common is the idea of “positive thinking”.  Whether it’s The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale or […]

Get More from Your Commute

Our commutes don’t have to be dead time. Who doesn’t have a commute any more?  Mine is relatively short now.  Less than 30 minutes, actually.  But, when I lived in Chicago, it was at least an hour each direction, whether I was behind the wheel driving or riding on a train or bus.  I used […]

Christmas Music for Free

Yes, free Christmas music. Normally, I share this sort of thing well in advance of Christmas, but, well, time got away from me.  Still, I love Christmas music of almost any kind and everyone loves things that are free.  So, combining the two is my way of spreading some holiday cheer! For a number of […]

Star Wars Fun and Games

The new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, opens today, and, in honor of that, I thought I’d share some Star Wars related links. The first, which I hope is fun for everyone with a website, and who remembers the original Star Wars, Episode IV, A New Hope, is the Star Wars Crawl Creator. Do […]

FanFic

No, I’m not writing it, but I’m not knocking it, either! I know a lot of people do look down on fan fiction, mostly because it traditionally hasn’t been the best quality.  In fact, back in the old days, when I first was trying my hand at writing, it was very much denigrated and no […]

Don’t Give Up!

If you’ve been grinding away at your NaNoWriMo novel, don’t give up! Seriously, no matter how close you are, or are not, to getting 50,000 words of your novel out before the end of the month, keep writing. It’s the only way your dream of writing a novel will come true.  I know it’s hard, […]
