I notice that the merch store does not yet have any of the most recent set of David Cater posters (either the individual ones with the faces split in half next to the quotations, or the all-in-one version that was at the bottom of your tumblr post announcing the Chapter 1 episode). Do you know if those are going to be available for purchase at some point? Asking for a friend. :-)Posted by jbc on August 25th, 2016 at 11:21 am
So I live by a lake, and over the last few years I’ve seen this stuff cropping up all over the water’s edge. At first, I assumed it was someone’s fishing line and never bothered to look closer. But then it started showing up in more and more places.
It’s actually a parasitic plant called Dodder (or Cuscuta), which is unable to produce it’s own chlorophyll. It steals its nutrients from other plants by inserting specialized root projections called haustoria into the vascular system of its host. It’s considered part of the Morning Glory family. I don’t like it. Not only because it’s parasitic, but because it looks like discarded trash!
For what it’s worth, I like dodder. It grows at the salt marsh where I do docent tours.
When it’s in bloom it has tiny white flowers. Newly emerged dodder seedlings lack chlorophyll and can’t manufacture their own food, so they have to find a host really quickly. Dodder seedlings grow selectively in the direction of the nearest host plant. Experiments have shown that the plant is responding to the host plant’s airborne chemical cues.

one. talking bird//death cab for cutie//the windows were open the whole time
two. ghosts//the head and the heart//all my friends are sitting in their graves
three. barton hollow//the civil wars//can’t no preacher man save my soul
four. sapokanikan//joanna newsom//some unrecorded and powerful hand
five. our retired explorer//the weakerthans//i must be getting back to dear antarctica
six. jeb rand//armistice//you’re a wanted man, shot down by your brother’s hand
seven. luisa’s bones//crooked fingers//we came with the rising of the river
eight. lost boys//paper bird//sing to the sky, sing down low

It’s nice that Emily has a playlist to listen to now while she writes poems in her room.

Just got home from watching “Kubo and the Two Strings” for the third time, this time I went with coworkers and I was so happy when they all walked out of there going “that was ridiculously good, right? That wasn’t just me?” And it’s so great to hear the different ways in which they enjoyed and related to it from it’s artistry to the relationships between the characters and even the depiction of memory loss and dementia. And damn it’s just as great as the first time and I keep discovering all these things about it and omg I may or may not write Meta yargh I’m so in love.
I am gnashing my teeth over the fact that next week’s session times are not childcare compatible for a second look.
But everyone else should go!

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster.

I hadn’t realized who his character was named after. That’s super interesting. Now I’m really curious to see if he does come back. I kind of suspect he won’t; having the victims hang around in ghost form somewhat undercuts the whole murder-mystery format. But it will be fascinating to see how it plays out either way.

Rho Ophiuchi Cloud Complex With Mars And Saturn
Taken by Bill Metallinos on April 12, 2016 @ Corfu, Greece
I’ve been enjoying the Mars/Saturn/Antares show during evening Pokémon sessions. Doesn’t look quite like this to the naked eye, but it’s cool knowing all this is up there.

I’m already so in love with poe party! Who had your favorite character introduction (if it’s happened yet)?Posted by jbc on August 24th, 2016 at 8:46 am
As if I could even CHOOSE! They’re all so wonderful and specific and silly. You may have heard us talk about this on the podcast or some other something, but we shot those at the very end of the shoot (just the way it worked out, scheduling wise), and it was just one of the most wonderful experiences because we all stayed to watch everyone do their entrance, and we all laughed and laughed and laughed. I love that we did them last, because all of the actors had had the two weeks to really delve into these people, and that made their first impression so much more rich than if we had done it first in the schedule. It’s so, so fun, and I love how it plays in the episode.
I will say that the star of that scene IS THE FREAKING SCORE. The first time we heard it, I screamed. I LOVE how it changes for each character in subtle ways. It’s brilliant and Dylan Glatthorn is brilliant and we are so so lucky to have him.
