This will, in all likelihood, be the last of the rotating northeast filk
conventions. Three meetings took place at Contata to plan the new
NEFilk, an annual convention with a single committee and geographic
area. Watch nefilk.us

drawesome: A Drawing Community for Fan-Artists
I'm not sure whether this bill is good or bad. It appears to target "hecklers' veto", which may be a good thing. OTOH, I'm afraid that "violent or other disorderly conduct" may mean whatever the campus police wants it to mean. Any thoughts?
Innocent-sounding question. No context.
It's that time of week again. (Or it was yesterday, at least.)
If you have a link that you'd like to share with the community but which you don't feel merits a full entry, you can post it as a comment here! Likewise, if you see a link in the comments and want to discuss it more, feel free to respond and start a conversation.
The Pasadena Folk Music Society is very pleased to present the US debut of a fine new Celtic group, The Recollective, who are beginning their first American tour here at Caltech on Saturday, July 8 in Beckman Institute Auditorium (Little Beckman) at 8:00 PM. The band consists of Calum Morrison, (Glascow, Scotland) on vocals, guitar, banjo, tenor guitar, bodhran and Highland bagpipes, Karen Hickey, (County Mayo, Ireland) on fiddle, Michael Coult, (originally from Glossop, close to Manchester, England) on traditional Irish flute and whistles, and Kieran Leonard, (now living in London, originally from County Fermanagh) on drums, percussion, & bodhran. All of them have previously performed in the United States in other configurations, but they formed The Recollective in the past year after playing together in the Celtic Legends traveling show that has appeared for a million people worldwide over the years. As Kieran explains, their name, The Recollective, is meant as a double entendre, firstly that they are a group that sings and plays music inspired by the past and secondly, that they are as a 'collective' play in a contemporary and edgy style. They wanted a name that reflects both the traditional roots and the modern aspects of their music. Their brand new debut recording is about to be released, and should be available for purchase at this show. Hear Karen's beautiful fiddle interplay with Michael's flute, along with the perfect understated percusion of Kieran on the medley, Vals Til Mor Og Far/The Midge and Calum's vocal and guitar on Gin I Were a Baron's Heir. Help us welcome this fine band to our side of the pond!
Tickets for the show are $20 for adults and $5 for Caltech students and children. You can order them on the phone by calling the Caltech Ticket Office at (626) 395-4652. Online tickets are available here. You can avoid the service charge by purchasing tickets at the door on the night of the show or by visiting the Ticket Office in person at the Caltech Ticket Office in their new location at 1200 E. California Boulevard in Pasadena (Southeast corner of Wilson Avenue.) Their usual hours are 9AM - 4PM, Monday through Friday.

Due to economic constraints (lack of work), I will be unable to attend Contata, and thus have two attending memberships available for sale. If you're interested in acquiring them (at the pre-reg price, which is what we paid), please contact me. Thank you. -- Callibr8
I created 10variations
for Dreamwidth because it was an old concept from Livejournal that I used to love and many people felt inspired by, and I thought it would be nice to recreate it for a better, safer and cleaner platform like Dreamwidth :3
It's a community where you post a batch of 10 icons each time, made out of the same image but all different (according to a set of themes). It's best if you look at the profile to understand the concept! I hope you will like it and participate, I will participate also :3
At Contata, a pick-up chorus will be performing Kanefsky's "Code" (ttto "Men of Harlech"), as arranged in Ed Stauff's "The Scared [sic] Harp." At the last MASSFILC filksing, we had people on alto, tenor, and bass, but adding some singers would be nice, especially sopranos to sing the melody in the proper octave! If anyone would like to join in, let me or Keshlam or Ellen know. We'll be doing it as part of the GoH concert. We'll squeeze in a rehearsal at some point.
black_butler is a discussion community for fans of the manga and anime series Kuroshitsuji | Black Butler. We welcome fans of all (or no) pairings. Join us this week as we begin our season one rewatch.
Over on my own blog I've recorded something popping out of me (no, not TMI) that quite surprised me. You may enjoy it.
Are you a fan of NBC's Timeless?
Are you looking for a place to post your Timeless fanworks: your incredible icons, your fantastic fanart, your fanvids formidable, your fic, your podfic and meta?
Are you already thinking and/or obsessing about the next season even though it's over a year away? Are you longing for a place to discuss the past season's episodes, analyze the characters, and theorize about time travel?
A new Timeless community at Dreamwidth
We're just getting started. We hope you'll join us.
Has it been a week already? I didn't see it pass. Anyway: if you have a link you think worth sharing but not the time or energy to post a full entry, comment here. Or if a link sparks a thought, feel free to start or join a discussion.
It's time for another question thread!
- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.
