[profile] sl_walker has done a lovely pensive!Turnbull fanart piece and gifted it to me. And -- awesome of awesomes! -- has created a "Ride_Forever freeform tag" -- it reads as follows: "Damn you Ride_Forever (I still mean that with love)" -- LOL.

Check out the Turnbull art and more gorgeous art in her "Arts and Ends" series.

Oh noes! Southwest Airlines, the one on which I'm ticketed to travel Thursday for CON.TXT, experienced a major computer failure throughout their computer system nationwide and has canceled over 1,850 flights -- including the ones out of the airport from which I fly -- since the problem started on Wednesday. Southwest Airlines is encouraging those who have Southwest tickets up to this coming Tuesday to reschedule. This could still affect me on Thursday depending on how much of a jam-up is created by the rescheduling.

I know fen who were affected by this while trying to get home from SoMeCon in Florida this week. My sympathies to all who are now stuck over-long in airports and missing connections.

Bast has contributed so much to fandom: as a writer of fic and as a publisher of zines (DBA Requiem and DBA Ravenshadow). Now I'm boosting this signal to ask fandom to help Bast. She has had a lot of health issues for some time, and now her mother has cancer. They live in a rural area and they depend on their car to transport them to get health care, and now they need to raise money to fix the brakes on that only car. There's an upcoming cancer surgery for her mom, so they really need to get that car fixed NOW. If you can help at all, please go to this link to contribute: click here to help Bast and her mom.

I can't be coherent about this right now. Here, as the saying goes: "a picture is worth a thousand words".

Sooooo...I signed up to get access to advance ticket sales for when Hamilton comes to the Chicago Theatre. I got the notice today. First of all it said this thing I had not seen before, and I am wondering if it's specifically a Hamilthing or if it's now common in a realm of ticket sales that I simply haven't accessed before; it says: "We are a resale marketplace, not the ticket seller. Prices are set by third-party sellers." Secondly, I was of course expecting that tickets would be in the hundreds of dollars, but I wasn't expecting that per-ticket prices would start at over half-a-thousand and go up over two thousand. Wow, that's a more dedicated theatre-goer than I who is paying over two thousand. Did any of y'all pay less than $550 per ticket?
