I think you mean ‘Smashing’
Wow…I’m reminded of how I eventually ditched my library card. Now, the library cards to our public library are of course free. However, I started having problems with our public library when it came to returning a book I borrowed. Mind you, I always turned the books in on time, even if it meant turning them into the drop box outside of door. They always claimed that I had late charges. My final straw came when I had borrowed a book for a school project. I was frequenting the library a lot during that time because I didn’t have the internet at home. I was trying to borrow another book for the school project. I’ll have you to know that they wouldn’t allow me to borrow that book until my late fee was paid on the other book I borrowed, which wasn’t due to be returned for another 3 days.
The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.
Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry?
This ending was perhaps one of the most satisfying endings to a video game I’ve ever seen. If you know the backstory of Alice: Madness Returns, you’d know exactly why I’m saying that.

I remember them very well. I had a Hit Clip player that looked identical to the one in the picture, only it was grey. It had Smashmouth’s “All Star” that came with it. I absolutely loved that thing, but unfortunately, because I was living under the same roof with my aunt and two cousins(my youngest cousin threw violent temper tantrums when he didn’t get his way), the Hit Clip didn’t last very long.
OKAY SO DOES ANYONE ELSE REMEMBER HIT CLIPS??? BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE I’M THE ONLY ONE WHO DOES AND THOSE THINGS WERE FRIGGIN AWESOME OKAY.
Another random photo for the evening—
I took this picture in the fall of 2011 at an area on the Foothills Parkway known as Look Rock. The entire area in itself offered a gorgeous view of the Smokies and Happy Valley. This observation area was a great alternative to standing on the edge of the cliff. I absolutely hate heights.
This is in Blount County, Tennessee.
The high plains of Oregon. One of my favorite areas.
This is a pretty old photo from my archives, one that I myself am really impressed with, given the type of camera I used to take this picture.
I took this photo in the fall of 2011 at Chilhowee Lake in Blount County, Tennessee. Back in those days, I carried this little silver Canon Powershot A490 in my back pocket. It had 10 whole megapixels, a terrible flash, several different settings you could use, and the zoom lens wasn’t the best in the world. This wasn’t to say that it was a terrible camera. In fact, it was one of the best cameras I ever owned. I loved my A490 due to how easy it was to use. At that time, I was just starting to delve a little deeper into photography and my journeys in urban exploration had just begun. As you all know, I do not consider myself as a photographer. I’m just a nosey person with a camera and passion for documenting local history.
The setting I used for this picture was called “Sunset”. “Sunset” was my most utilized setting for the A490 because it amplified the natural lighting of a location, especially if it was outdoors. It did a wonderful job with causing the brilliant fall colors to “pop” out. I miss that camera so much.
I have since went on to own a Panasonic Lumix, Nikon Coolpix, and Fujifilm Finepix. If I had to take my pick out of the cameras I enjoyed using the most, it would have to be the Panasonic Lumix and Canon Powershot. Both cameras have many fond memories attached to them. In fact, my memorable explores were documented with those 2 cameras.
I’ve been listening to a lot of anime and video game soundtracks recently to help inspire my newer writings. My newer writings were also inspired by recent events that are going on in my neck of the woods.
Open up a newspaper, find an article that interests you and create a story from that article.
This is a great idea. You can also use music to inspire you.
