The Last Unicorn

It was my favorite movie when I was a kid. When I got older, it became one of my favorite books.

Little '80s Me is rather fascinated by this recent synth-tastic cover of the movie's theme song. She's also still ready to cry every time the song gets to the "I'm alive!" part.

Go ahead. Play the video above. BE VULNERABLE WITH ME.

A Decent Start

I suppose that this is a decent way to start the new year. Not too long ago, I got word that one of my stories was accepted for publication in the digital magazine Beyond Science Fiction. Yesterday, I got word that the issue containing my story has been published. Yep, those all were good words to read.

If you'd like to read a few words yourself, you can check out "Super" along with several other people's works in the January 2015 issue of Beyond Science Fiction. It's a Kindle-only joint, so e-readers, deploy!

For a few people I know, the title of this song most aptly summarized their feelings toward 2014:

If that includes you, then I hope that you're on your way to a 2015 in which you're cursing more out of a feeling of exuberance than a feeling of frustration, because we all deserve at least that kind of joy.

So happy effing New Year, eh?
