Ladies of Fright, Me, & Elizabeth

Oh yeah: I’m not on Facebook anymore

Guess the body of this post is pretty much in the subject line up there.

Maybe again someday? Who knows. Just deactivated, didn’t delete. Wanted to see what the other side is like. But I’m still in birdland, should anybody need me.

And I’m on Litsy as well, having fun.

Not on Instagram, though. Reason? I never think of taking pictures. Jealous of an impressed by all the people who do and can, though. Or, maybe I should say, the only things I ever think to snap a pic of, which maybe explains why I’m not an Instagrammer, are:

Little House Crossed the Prairie

And made it to me here in Boulder. Amazing-cool, thank you everyone who read it, who voted on it, who dug it.

Now if I can just keep from dropping it. I almost just nailed it with a dog-toy, during a furious game of fetch, so it may have to be finding a higher, more out-of-the-way home . . .

NALS 2018

Hey, cool—and thanks to David Tremblay for the headsup. Guess I’m  on some page NALS stuff. I’m thinking that snapshot is maybe from a keynote I gave at Isleta Casino couple years back?

And here’s that keynote, from when I read it later at IAIA: Stephen Graham Jones from IAIA – Low Rez MFA (video won’t embed, turns out—privacy settings). Guess a snapshot of me also got used for the StokerCon website this year:

Evoluting

This is some cool stuff. And, I can see it being used as kind-of support for what I keep hearing: that we sapiens-types evolved not in a single push from heidelbergensis or so, but in both Africa and Asia from erectus. Just, as with these spiders, we ended up so much the same that we then mingled up and became what we are today. Really? I do think we found ourselves in Asia when we came up out of Africa, but I kind of doubt we’d evolved to be that similar—though, yes, with primates, if two lineages share a common ancestor  within the last couple million years, they can mate and produce fertile offspring. So, I mean, yeah, Peking Man, Java Man, they were of course there. And it’s kind of hard to argue they weren’t somewhere in the mix that’s now us. Just, they’re maybe a step before the Denisovans, I’m thinking (which are now, like Neanderthals, in us, as we’re very Borg: we assimilate).
