The third installment of the “Real Talk” series, which features real students giving real advice. This week, I have a special guest; Libby (stanfordetc) shares what she wishes she’d known as a college freshman.
Hello! Just wondering, will there be a VidCon app available this year? It was amazingly helpful last year. Thanks, and DFTBA!
There will be! It will be similar to last year’s app but with some modified/additional features. You’ll still be able to plan out your own personal schedule and bookmark performers and such! We are putting the finishing touches on it – we’ll let you know when the app store(s) approve it! It will be the same app as last year, so if you’ve already got it installed, all you’ll have to do is update. For iOS & Android!
OH man, I’ve been waiting for you guys to start posting again! I did an edit of an assassin character you posted a while back. I thought she’d look a bit more intimidating with her whole face covered, for one thing, and the original had all these weird features that would get in the way of the whole ‘professional murder’ deal (like a shirt that was mostly just a shawl that only barely came down past her nipples!?). I was way too excited to make an elfy assassin look cooler and a bit more prepped for her job!
Running with Crohn’s asked me to Stop, Drop, and Selfie, so here it is. Scout wanted to play along. Maybe Scout needs his own Tumblr.
I’m coaching 90 people in my group and 13 individuals on a more customized basis, so I spend a lot of time on the computer and phone helping people with their schedules and helping solve problems as they pop up. I’m going to try this out… an occasional feature to this blog. Each time I’ll give you one insight into my side of the computer. Since today is the first installment, I’ll give you two.
Things That Drive Your Running Coach Crazy:
If you have something that hurts so badly that you can’t run, don’t take three days off, run again to confirm it still hurts, take more time off, run again, and then finally tell me that you haven’t run for a week and that it hurts. If you have something that hurts, your workout for the day has now become solving that problem. You ice it, you take an anti-inflammatory, you go see the doctor, you roll it. THEN, your second workout for the day is doing an alternative workout: water running, elliptical, biking, or spin class. Being hurt doesn’t mean you have a day off; it means you now have double the work. Oh, and maybe let me know so that I can help.
And your bonus tidbit: Please don’t send your coach pictures of your feet or toes. We know what a blister looks like. We know what a toe nail that is falling off looks like. I swear, if I get one more foot picture I’m going to hurl.
The large tote from the 2009 Pokemon Center promotion. This tote features a (somewhat) glittery Umbreon and Espeon. I have one for my collection and another I currently use :) It’s such a nice and durable bag!
Hello Caryl fans! As you may (or may not) know, June was Featured FlashbackMonth on the Nine Lives Archive, where members of the Nine Lives community nominated their favorite classics (older, completed stories) to be featured on the archive. We had a fantastic turnout of votes that led to an amazing selection of stories – way more than we had anticipated! We did our very best to feature as many of these fanfics as we could.
Here it is at last, the full list of stories that were spotlighted for Featured Flashback Month. (Story titles link directly to that story on the Nine Lives Archive.)
This year during South by Southwest , Consequence of Sound teamed with Jukely and Tito’s Handmade Vodka to bring Off the Avenue to Austin. We invitednearly 30 bands to visit our special 5th StreetStudios setup and film exclusive sessions.
This week’s first episode features Mini Mansions ,the indie pop trio made of Zach Dawes, Tyler Parkford, and Queens of the Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman. The group performeda pair of tracks off their recent sophomore LP,The Great Pretenders.First came a rendition of album opener “Freakout!”, followed by the hit single “ Vertigo” . Even without Arctic Monkey’s Alex Turner there to take vocals on the latter song, the band proved they don’t need outside help to deliver a killer performance. Check out both videos below.
