Hello all and welcome to my most excellent web page! My goal in adding this page to the WTS is to entertain my fellow toasters, and maybe even a small segment of the rest of the Web. I'll endeavor to add something new every week, so keep checking in, or look for any announcements about my pages in The Wunderland Weekly News.
My offerings will fall into two categories: First, original works; artwork, music, photos, or writing that I'm collecting here for self-publication on a scale unimaginable a few years ago. Hopefully, the world's collective yawn won't totally blow me over, but I think you'll enjoy it if you've gotten this far. Second, Stuff I Found On The Web, brought back and held up to the light for your enjoyment. There's a whole underground world of music publication on the Web through a device called "MIDI", and I have a link page or two of my favorites for you to cruise. Also, in commenting on an issue or interest of mine, I'll write some essays filled with links for you to read.
Go directly to the corners of my electronic world by using the navigation bar appearing at the top of this page, or jump down below this section to find out what I've added this week. I'll also be experimenting with time, allowing you to scroll through previous weeks' versions of my pages where appropriate.
Here is this week's nanofic.
The Bum Report
Today's nanofic is brought to you in part by Morwen (Zeynep Dilli), who is responsible for making me read a lot of "Star Wars: X-Wing" novels recently, which inspired the dream that inspired this story. With apologies to Michael Stackpole for using his character (Corran).
No new art this week, although I've updated my catalog at LJoy Studios to reflect the changes in my stock since my big sales event at May Revels. It went ok, I sold a few things and gave out a huge stack of cards. The crowd wasn't as huge as it's been at Revels past, and the sales area was kind of isolated, but as I had hoped, the May Revels organizers themselves were impressed with my stands and bought three total. Among those sold was one I had just made last week, and possibly my favorite of all so far. Since I had possessed it for such a short time, I was sad to see it go, but I have to console myself with the knowlege that it's going to a good home. Here's a picture of it:
This is a short one, for use with guitar for instance. I particularly like the root-like legs on this one; number 1011 is similar but this stand's square proportions I found very perfect.
In other news, I was called to jury duty this week, and to my shock and surprise I was actually picked for a jury. The trial is over now, we declared her "not guilty". I was hoping to find some news item about the crime on the Net, so I could just put up a link rather than describe it, but so far have had no luck. But I'm not going to describe it anyhow. The interesting thing about the experience, which I'm sure that Andy can confirm, is how eerily familiar it was, even though I'd never done it before. The american jury system has been the setting of countless TV shows and movies of course, but I was surprised at how much drama there was in the jury room even on our relatively insignificant case. It was like being in a TV show.
