Nice People Are Nice

Random acts of kindness.

The kindness of strangers.

It’s wonderful, it lifts us up, and I’m pretty certain that it happens far more often than we mention it.

So, I’m mentioning it here.

Last night, on a forum, I mentioned that it looks like I’ve got bronchitis, and that I might be a bit grumpy because of that.

I didn’t expect anything. A few people to tell me to get well soon and send me good wishes, because, even though we don’t actually know each other, we’ve been talking to each other for a while, and it’s a nice thing to say.

And I did get those. I also got more.

One guy went to YouTube to look for something cute to cheer me up, and came back with this.

Another forum member, a woman, sent me the cute kitty picture you see above.

Like I said, we don’t really know each other. We talk to each other on the forum, mostly about work, and sometimes we share interesting stuff. We all protect our privacy, both because of the rules, and because we choose to. Obviously, there was nothing to gain from this. Just nice people being nice.

And their kindness should be mentioned, so I’m doing it.


A Brand New YouTube Channel!

I’ve mentioned that I’ve been playing with Flixpress videos. Well, I kept playing. I have customized a bunch of them (some were for work, and the rest of them were either for promoting my blogs, or whatever I felt like creating). Of course, all these videos needed a nice home, so I have created my very own angel011 channel. Check it out, if you wish, or take a look at the examples below.

If you see something you like, feel free to share! 🙂



Norman Spinrad at Beokon!

Here’s another one that took me forever to share.

As I mentioned when I wrote about BeoKon 2017, the guest of honor was Norman Spinrad: a science fiction author (Bug Jack Barron, The Iron Dream, A World Between, Child of Fortune, The Druid King, Osama the Gun, He Walked Among Us…), screenwriter, essayist, critic… His work was often described as controversial (but was nominated for various awards, anyway), he was the SFWA President twice, and you could say that, when it comes to science fiction and the long decades of his life devoted to it, he’s been there, done that, seen everything, and is still here to tell the tale.

Of course, with him being so famous, you already knew this (if you’re interested in sci-fi or science fiction), or you could Google it. However, here are some videos that haven’t been shared much: Norman Spinrad at BeoKon 2017 (plus video clips of the convention itself, if you’re curious what it looked like).
