I feel like my internet presence has been disjointed and confusing, so I've been trying to merge more things together. I'm going to run down a list of things I have to make it easier to follow what I've been up to. For those who have been playing the game to win, this list will (mostly) seem a bit redundant:
First off, my new band's sites. We've just bought a domain name:http://www.neverrightnow.com
which right now just redirects to our BandCamp site:http://neverrightnow.bandcamp.com
The BandCamp site has better quality streams of our music, and you can also download the songs we have up there (and when we have an album, it'll be available for download/purchase there).
We've also got a Myspace at:http://myspace.com/neverrightnow
where we'll be posting songs and gigs (when we have 'em) and where you can friend us if you have a Myspace.
You can also become a fan of Never Right Now on Facebook:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Never-Right-Now/326417010926?ref=ts
For good measure we'll be uploading our songs and announcing gigs here as well. There's also the added community aspect of Facebook, because we get to post discussions and links, which I find so super neat.
We hope to get up an actual site soon at our new domain, with lyrics and bio/press kit stuff and blog links and such. In the works: a blog (probably Wordpress, Twitter, a spot at ReverbNation, and (once we begin to amass some video content), YouTube.
2. ART IN GENERAL
My nifty-difty (it's a word now that I've typed it) art blog is at:http://ans99.wordpress.com/
And there is an LJ feed located at:http://hieratic_art.livejournal.com
Here I'll post my photos, drawings, fanvids, writing, and of course any developments in the band or music in general. It's DEFINITELY worth following if you like what I do at all, because it'll probably all get mentioned and then linked from there.
I've also got Hieratic updates being crossposted automatically to Twitter.
My Tumblog is at:http://ans99.tumblr.com
I used to have to ship Twitter to LJ (which is apparently an incredible social faux pas) in order to bring my Tumblr posts to my friends list. Now I've created a direct LJ feed:http://ans99tumblr.livejournal.com/
In my personal Tumblog, I reblog and post all sorts of things 'round the Internet that make me smile, weep, get angry, and, last but not least, think. It's a nice collection of what inspires me on the 'Net, but also of interesting tidbits from sources that might not make the mainstream news. I also tend to post pertinent updates from my other blogs when I remember.
In addition, because of all the inane book covers I run across in the course of my job (which at least in part has me putting up book reviews on a website), I created an additional Tumblr mocking said book covers:http://wtfbookcovers.tumblr.com
The LJ feed is here:http://wtfbookcovers.livejournal.com
Some of these seriously have to be seen to be believed.
My Twitter is at:http://twitter.com/ans99
Twitter is kind of a dumping ground and I'm scared to go there much because with my day and my rampant Internet addiction as full blown as it already is, I really cannot keep up with what kind of sandwich Adam Savage ate for lunch or what Neil Gaiman said to Amanda Palmer over the phone. So this is not used for much more than notifying any readers of Tumblr posts, and now Hieratic posts, that I've made. OCCASIONALLY I will do an actual Tweet. Also our British cell phone has texting capabilities so when I go overseas I'll probably use it again for trip updates.
I think that's it.
OH. Before I forget:If you have a site (for art, or writing, or whatever) and you'd like to be linked from any of my sites, please let me know.
I'd love to include you. I'm especially interested in rebuilding the blogroll for Hieratic. Most of the links from Digitalis will be rolled over but I know some of you might have some new stuff you want to share.
So in other news, today I've got some sort of eyelid swelling going on. It's burny and obnoxious, and I don't want to go out in public. I woke up this way, so I'm not sure what happened. Took some Tavist, which did NOTHING, and applied an icepack to the eye. Nothing is really beating it too well though :(
Also, all my Neko Case arrived, as well as the Doctor Who 2009 specials. The Neko Case is of course awesome, and I've been listening to it all afternoon.
But the specials artwork... ugh. Ok, First off, not enough Master! I'm rather incensed that Wilf gets the other CD for End of Time (Doctor gets the other of course). WTF. The story is about TIME LORDS. Not some doofy old person who... well, maybe that's a spoiler. But he doesn't deserve the Master's place, that's for dang sure. He just got in the way the entire story!
Also, the inside cover art for it is just entirely too melodramatic:
Give me a flippin' break.
