Six Word Saturday 9

Whoops.

I forgot about Flash Fiction Friday yesterday. Just completely. My wife talked a bit about what we were up to yesterday, so that’s some of it. And I guess, some of it too is changing Features, you suddenly have something new to remember! Be ye warned.

I always wanted to use the line above for a Meme, and just never had inspiration. It seems like the sort for a two-part sort of thing: the first one, something. There’s the part I didn’t know. But part two is Doctor Moon, from the Doctor Who classics Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead, saying “and then, you forgot.” If you have any ideas for making the Meme, let me know and I will see what I can do!

Anyway, Flash Fiction Friday is not dead, it will return – I had even tweeted a story. I’ll just be saving that…

And reminder: Doctor Who series 8 starts tonight!

Doctor Who TARDIS Mug

Meme Monday 6 – Heavy in Your Arms

Doctor Who - Florence & the Machine

Recently on my post on Florence & the Machine, there were some Doctor Who connections in the form of a meme… and in the comments, I got the idea for another one. Everyone really liked the song “Heavy in your arms” in the comments, so… enjoy!

The Sunday Re-Blog – The Definition of Fantasy

If I really want to talk about differences between Science Fiction and Fantasy, then I really need to have solid definitions of the two. I recently gave my working definition of Science Fiction, from one of Science Fiction’s greatest practitioners – Frank Herbert. So now, we need a definition for Fantasy.

So why not get that definition from J.R.R. Tolkien?

I don’t know the source, except that I found it circulating on Facebook. There is a signature in the lower left, so I will let that speak for the creator of this image. I found this on Doctor Who and the T.A.R.D.I.S. on Facebook, but this is mostly just a Facebook page that shares images from the fandoms, mostly Doctor Who. Actually, one I recommend, just know that there’s a lot of images that they share. Be ready.

Anyway, after the jump, check out the definition of Fantasy! Read more of this post

Something About This Worked – Part 3

This is a screenshot of the first few lines of Google Image results for the term - The Nine Alignments. I come up twice from comparativegeeks.wordpress.com!

So here’s some more evidence that something we’re doing is working – over on Comparative Geeks. Time to check in on the experiment I have had going on these last weeks.

So what has the last month looked like?

  • Comparative Geeks – Character Studies Truncated: Last 30 days, 45 views
  • DBCII – Something About This Worked, Parts 1 and 2: Total, 6 views

I am also not seeing any search terms that turned these posts up, although with 6 views, that’s not surprising.

This experiment is intriguing in that it’s not turning anything up here in the slightest. Also: frustrating. I had said that the next experiment was the photos with the tags, so here we go!
