Just had a dream I was playing a B-movie themed pinball table, but instead of hearing quotes from the movie as my ball hit stuff, quotes from the Rifftrax of the movie would play. It was awesome.

But I'm reminded of Terry Pratchett's musing on inspiration. It's floating around out there like a mist, concentrating on some more than others. But it hits most people, like me, who are unable to do anything about it. It's quite a lucky thing when the right inspiration hits someone capable of making it happen.

The world being a Subway. I guess in that there seem to be many choices but they all ultimately taste identical.

It's clear that at least half of it is about stubbing your toe....I think?

Joking aside it's actually about how being told "you can be whatever you want to be" is a lie, in theory it's correct but most people end up just being ordinary and not doing anything of any real importance, at least from a certain point of view (the one of the singer/narrator of the song).

So I had a photo selected for an exhibit, which is nice I suppose (means the entry fee wasn't a complete waste, maybe), only the exhibit is postponed until they can find some new gallery space. So, I dunno, maybe it'll not happen after all.  :-\

I'm camping right now, but it's raining like crazy. So I'm stuck in the tent, but I still have service.

I think I may have seen a cicada today it was a black bug about the size of the top  third of my finger then it took off. Read that they taste like shrimp.

I was going to say that I thought cicadas were green, but after a Google image search, apparently they can be black, too.

I assume it was a cicada because I've never seen a bug like it.  And I keep hearing that they're out and about in Virginia.

They tend to get loud when there are a lot of them chirping in chorus. Think of a harsher, louder version of crickets.
