Open Blog Monday: “Samantha” (An Original Song)

image

Welcome to another Tuesday installment of Open Blog Monday – the weekly feature no one can pin down.

“Samantha” by Iris Goldfeder

Today’s OBM is brought to you by my friend Iris Goldfeder, who wrote and performed a song entitled “Samantha.” The song is based on a true story and was written in an effort to raise awareness about homelessness in the US.

 

If you enjoyed the song, please pass it along to friends and interested parties. For more information, visit the Bethany House of Nassau County website, where you’ll find several ways to help the cause.

Bethany House exists to strengthen and assist those women and children from Long Island who are deprived of the basic resources required for natural and healthy growth and development. Bethany House seeks to provide a homelike atmosphere where basic living needs are met and comprehensive services combine to encourage the head of the family to attain self – sufficiency for the family and restore their human dignity.

Today’s Post Contains Stuff

Today  is one of those “did not get enough sleep” days where I make very little sense in general conversation. I just said the following to K about five minutes ago:

Why you make me fefafa?

And then I couldn’t remember what I’d meant to say but it had something to do with the weather.

This morning wasn’t any better:

Open Blog Monday–Some Irish Music For You

Yes, I know it’s Wednesday. But Open Blog Monday does not want to be tied down to one weekday-label. This week, it felt more like a Wednesday than a Monday and it decided to say, “EFF YOU” to the man. In this case, I would be the man. Except I’m not a man. You see? It all makes perfect sense.

Heathers – Remember When

This week’s OBM comes from Olivia, who wants to share some Irish music with you in the form of Heathers singing “Remember When.”

 

Thanks, Olivia!

For more on Heathers check out their official site.

Some Cool Gay Things You Might Like If You Like Cool Gay Things

A Cool Book For You

If you like lesbians and myths and/or books about lesbians and myths and also things that are awesome, I’d like to recommend the book The Dark Wife by the lovely Sarah Diemer.

Persephone has everything a daughter of Zeus could want–except for freedom. She lives on the green earth with her mother, Demeter, growing up beneath the ever-watchful eyes of the gods and goddesses on Mount Olympus. But when Persephone meets the enigmatic Hades, she experiences something new: choice.
Zeus calls Hades “lord” of the dead as a joke. In truth, Hades is the goddess of the underworld, and no friend of Zeus. She offers Persephone sanctuary in her land of the dead, so the young goddess may escape her Olympian destiny.

But Persephone finds more than freedom in the underworld. She finds love, and herself.
The Dark Wife is a YA novel, a lesbian revisionist retelling of the Persephone and Hades myth.

Rizzoli & Isles

Rizzoli & Isles Promo: The Gayest Thing Since Gay Pride (and by ‘Gay’ I mean Awesome)

I feel that this promo for the second season of Rizzoli & Isles deserves its own post. By the way, for those of you who’ve been asking me: I am most probably going to recap the first season episodes of Rizzoli & Isles that I missed. At the very least, I will be recapping season 2. Assuming season 2 is worth recapping.

Judging by this promo, though, I’m thinking yes.

30 Day Photo Challenge – Day 14:
Unedited TBSOL on the Kindle

 

For those of you who read v2, that scene will look familiar. For those of you who haven’t read v2…then I guess this is brand new information! This section hasn’t been edited yet so I have no idea what it’ll look like at the end of it all. But there you go anyway.

I was testing to see what Calibre did to the file if I tried to convert it from a PDF to a MOBI file and it didn’t come out all that great. Gonna see what Scrivener does to it. Playing with software is fun!

So this is probably the greatest thing I’ve seen so far today:

30 Day PHoto Challenge—Day 9

My ability to focus today is lingering somewhere in the negative numbers, so I expect this post to be a little bit … country. No, not country. Not really rock & roll either. I’m not really sure what this post is going to be. But I hope it mutates into something cool, like a cross-dressing dragon. I really want chocolate. And a dragon. I want a dragon to bring me chocolate.

Tomorrow is a big deal for two reasons…

image

First and foremost, a special thank you to all the new people in my life who’ve found me via my Lesbicanarias article. ¡Saludos a todas!

So, tomorrow is a big deal for two reasons:

  • It’s May 1st which means I’ll be kicking off a brand new daily challenge.
  • It’s May 1st which means  K and I will be celebrating our eight year anniversary.

May 1st is a holiday in France and everything is closed/non-operational (the whole country is celebrating us getting together, apparently; so sweet of them) and so we usually go out to celebrate on May 2nd. Not really sure what we’ll do this year. Maybe get really drunk and run naked through the streets of Lyon/get arrested for public misconduct. Or did we do that last year? I can’t remember.
