Okay, how many of you are going to be watching the hockey game this afternoon? It's going to be a real nailbiter, no matter which side you're rooting for. Personally, I think our entire country will end up on the floor in a fetal position if we lose. I don't envy the players. Having the Olympics at home has really upped the ante.

The Commander of the largest Air Force Base in Canada, 46 year old Colonel Russell Williams has been arrested and charged with 2 murders, and two sexual assults. He was appointed to the position last summer--all these crimes took place between sept. and jan.

OMG.

There are only 86 colonels in the Air Force. These guys are thouroughly vetted and don't get appointed unless there's no whiff of impropriety. This is just...wow.

The unit that was responsible for his arrest was a specialized OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) unit that's kind of like the guys on Criminal Minds. They use a combination of criminal-profiling, polygraphing, forensic psychiatry, threat assessment, and research.

All the stories about this are listed at the botton of the linked page including the story about the unit that caught him.

I just couldn't be more shocked.

Hey, folks! Long time, no see. While I intended to take a good solid break, I didn't intend it to be this long! Funny thing, when you spend five hours a day writing (average minimum), and stop doing it for a while, you find that there are other things you enjoy, too. I'm afraid that self discipline is going to take a little while to be imposed again. ;)

Anyway, here's a belated summary of this year's writing with commentary.

Haven't been on much over the holidays--various activities and obsessive playing of 'Dragon Age.' ;) I have some catching up to do!

First off, I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season in whatever manner they celebrate, and a happy new year to you all!

Happy Birthday to you, Cnidarian! There's a video to be made with your trip footage and stills whenever you'd like. :)

I'll be doing a year-end round up of my stories, etc. in the near future. I did much less than last year, but I think I put more work into each one. I'm currently taking a writing break for the holidays, partly because of the aforementioned video game madness, and partly because I accidently deleted or overwrote a whole rewrite and needed to step away to recover my equilibrium. ;)

Best wishes to all in this holiday season!

This video is a birthday present for Aelfgyfu Mead. Happy late birthday! You'll notice some frame size wonkiness as not all the clips are exactly the same size. I'm slowly ripping by DVDs to fix that and it will be repaired later. (Thanks again for the DVDs, Suzannemarie--that can never be said enough) The video is to 'Blood Makes Noise' by Suzanne Vega, and it's about the feelings and fears that go unspoken.

Here's the Link:
Blood Makes Noise

There's a download button below the streaming video, and as usual, I highly recommend downloading. Diveshare streaming video is always pretty bad, but this time it seems to have messed up the aspect ratio a bit, too, so it's extra bad. Bad aspect ratio is evil.

I forgot to wish Aelfgyfu Mead a happy birthday back when! December is just screaming by.... In my defense, I am working on a little project for you, but still.... Hope the day was full of fun!

Came across an excellent video today. It's on Youtube, and is by Vicki Turner. It's a Daniel video to Boulevard Of Broken Dreams by Green Day.

Note: The intro/credits at the beginning isn't part of the video and is in a completely different style, so don't let that fool you.
