Cool Sh*t Thursday

Wordless Wednesday? Photoshop Phridays?
I dub today to be Cool Shit Thursday. Last night I finished Kameron Hurley’s (@kameronhurley) new novel God’s War, and I haven’t started the review yet. I feel bad that I haven’t posted here in a few days, so here is some cool shit for you. It’s all interesting, I promise.
Impatient? scroll to the bottom. There is something there you will WANT to see. TRUST ME.
We had an ice storm earlier this week. Nothing really out of the ordinary for our part of the country. Anyway, a HUGE tree came down in a local playground . . .
It’s hard to tell from the photo, but that downed tree is at least 40 feet long. Guess no one’ll be playing there for a while.
I picked up some goodies at my local indie bookstore today (hi John! hi Jim! hi Tinker!). Please excuse the crappy photo:
That would be Agatha H and the Airship City by Phil & Kaja Foglio, and a Doctor Who audio book called Pest Control, read by the one, the only, David Tennant, who I’m madly in love with. Thanks to twitter peeps @icebergink, @christinajl_gb and @Davysitter who helped me join the 21st century and find audiobook directories by narrator!
Here’s where things get interesting. While we were at the bookstore, John says he wants to show me something.
Isn’t it beautiful? Just look at it. can’t you already hear the wind whooshing over stone walls, feel the cobblestones under your feet, and smell autumn leaves falling to the ground? I know I can.
and it weighs about 20 pounds.
