Another Freestyle Friday, that’s two in a row, woohoo! Hey, don’t judge. I get excited about the little things.
My week’s been fairly decent. Got to watch a baseball game with free food, so… Also had the second part of a short story I’m working on critiqued. A little more blood on those pages than I expected, but that’s good. I usually don’t get comments to increase the tension, but I did this time. I think it had more to do with the fact that I was trying to keep the story between 5 and 6k words. But, the story is a little bigger than that I guess. So, onward and upward (in word counts). Oh, I did get to watch Jordan Peele’s Us, you can find my thoughts on it here.
But, back to FF… Let the goodies flow!
Web Comic Highlight:
I found The Devil’s Panties a while ago (hehe, see what I did there?) and I’d almost forgot about it. Thank goodness for bookmarks, right? This particular one is pretty much privilege in a nutshell. Not any specific type, but more like the entire concept as a whole.
Oh. My. God. This is one of the truest things I’ve ever seen in comic form, courtesy of Maximumble. When this happens, I literally feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone, because it’s pretty much impossible for me to spell words like Twilight correctly on the first try.
Everyone loves free books. Okay, not everyone, because some people don’t like books. But those people are wrong, and can go live in their wrongness on their own. But for those who like books, here’s some free ones for you, courtesy of my publisher Creativia, just for Freestyle Friday. Just kidding, I’m just letting you know about their freebies because I feel like you deserve some free books. These books will be available at these links for free today through April 2nd.

This Week’s Science:
Who doesn’t love science? Right? Oh, wait. I already did that bit. Oh well, here’s some nifty science for you.
I’m going to be honest, with a name like “lava cricket” I was expecting something much stranger and exciting. But the real science isn’t exciting in the way most people think it is. This is mildly intriguing though. Could it have an impact on what kinds of life we might find in non-Earth environments?
I mean, come on. As someone who has real allergy/asthma issues, this is pretty insane. Do I now have to look forward to the day when the air itself actually tries to kill me?
This is pretty much a SciFi staple. I mean, scientists should look to the fandoms for the crazy shit out there. Heck, Stargate did it twice with two different species of Replicators. Even the Bork might technically qualify.
This is not explicitly science, but I feel like it could certainly be used for experimental purposes for the intrepid. Also, because it screws with YouTube, and that’s just funny.
And who doesn’t like NerdAr… Aw, shit. Whatever.
Cool art for Freestyle Friday, coming up.
