Technically, Linkin Park started when I was in middle and high school but I don't remember them being everywhere until college. That's when I had burned copies of Hybrid Theory and Reanimation. I played the second one for my mom I still remember how she said she enjoyed the instrumental pieces the most. Just a few months ago, I pointed out an early Linkin Park song and she didn't recognize it as them.

I can't remember now how it came about. My mom either saw them perform on a show or had WMNF talk it up repeatedly but "A Thousand Suns" was one of the few CDS that she bought new and not because it was on sale or something.
It's one of the best albums...ever.

If I had to make a Top 10 album list, this one would always be there. It's practically perfect. It's melancholy but hopeful. It's full of older tales still even more relevant today. It's thoughtful but toetapping. It's just...everything.

Then, there's Transformers. One of the reasons that Age of Extinction felt off was the lack of Linkin Park which was rectified by the fifth film. This video does have a LOT of that film if you're concerned with spoilers. I always meant to see it again but the timing never worked out so I'm happy about that.

But in general...this sucks. I think everyone my age was still getting over Chris Cornell's death...the Avengers credits will never be the same...and now this. Our attitudes towards mental health suck and they kill people and we just...suck.

I guess I keep thinking of that discussion between Jack Sparrow and Hector Barbossa:

Barbossa: The world used to be a bigger place.
Jack Sparrow: The world's still the same. There's just... less in it.

My eldest nephew introduced me to these and they're awesome. It's about every major piece of literature broken down into an easy to digest form and very entertaining but not lacking in the literary analysis either.

So I might be contemplating a Kraglin AU where I'd use Kirk Gleason lines and situations from the Gilmore Girls episodes but with Kraglin in the GOTG universe.

Ahhhhhhhh I am as relaxed and irritation free as one should be after a vacation. Unfortunately,  my brain is refusing to cooperate with me after so much action. I got home last night around five and immediately started working on a short story for publication.

Watched Twin Peaks, wrote some more, freaked out over the new Doctor, and went to bed. I slept really late and have been trying to get something done for posting to Terror or here, but so far, I'm just fumbling around, lol. I think I'll eat, get some tea in me, go over my notes from the weekend and try again in an hour or two.  Thankfully, I don't work until 6 tonight. 

Big prelim news though - Timothy Zahn was very friendly, and in a workshop he really liked one of my ideas :huge grin swoon:  I met a  couple localish writer/Twin Peaks fans that are now FB friends.  I learned some awesome info for writing and a few neat things about Star Wars. 

Talk to you all later, love and hugs!
