It just dawned in me that the gentleman that played Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness is the very same chap who played Sherlock Holmes on the BBC program, Sherlock.
Khan and Sherlock have a lot in common… :/
Something else has dawned on me.
Highlighting some great artists…
You know what’s cool about Bastet? She listens to Limp Bizkit. The first time I read this, I nearly fell off my chair. This kind, very artistic human being has a penchant for who? Limp Bizkit? Niiiiiiice. Of course, that’s not the most awesome thing about Bastet. Let me see… There’s poetry – free verse, formed, HAIGA, HAIKU and SENRYU; there’s photography and there is also storytelling. Bastet’s talents don’t end there, though. She can also draw. All of you who follow this blog are already aware that Bastet is an administrator here. If you’re not aware of what else she does, however, have a look at her blog, Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library.
Due to my not having been online lately, I haven’t read her most recent works yet. The latest I checked from Bastet is a piece called “Free Verse: Without Words”. I’d like to point out, though, that one of the most powerful pieces I’ve seen from Bastet is a piece called Odyssey of Fear, a piece which also makes an appearance in the poetry anthology, First Round’s On Us.
Have you ever heard of Shainbird? Shainbird is one whose love for the written word comes through effortlessly. She is one of those poets that you read from that can leave you either lost or tangled within the web of words she so delicately crafts. I think I’ve mentioned this before, here; Shainbird is not only a brilliant poet but also quite the effective storyteller. One of my favorite pieces from her is a short story called The Last Descent. Let’s just say that Shainbird really knows how to spin a good yarn into a silk robe.
I’ve been neglectful here, too. The last piece I read from Shainbird is called Release Me.
Last, but definitely not least, is Rob, who runs the blog Rob’s Real Life. Rob is known for some pretty powerful pieces. She actually wrote a piece that nearly had me in tears. That piece is called Womb and it was showed here in Rob’s Artist Feature. Rob is a poet who definitely knows her stuff, and not just on instinct like some of us do. I think Rob, like Shainbird, has an appreciation for the written word that goes far beyond mere fancy and emotional outlet. Don’t be shy; head on over to Rob’s blog and see for yourself.
The last piece I read from Rob was A Response to Friendship IXX – by Khalil Gibran.
You know what relaxes me? Cats. There’s a very cool page on Facebook for you cat lovers. It’s called I F**king Love Cats. The page is brilliant, to say the least. Not only is it really, really cute, but it’s funny as sin working overtime on a Sunday. Whatever that means… :/
That’s all for today my friends. I’ve a bit of recovering to do.
Until next time, pick your poison; preach your passion!
