Fellow Aus/NZ Night Valers!




I attended the live show in Sydney this Tuesday just gone. 

At the venue, they were selling merchandise. One of these pieces of merch was a CD, blue-green-teal in colour.

Here is my questions: What was the CD? Was this a CD of Dessa’s music?


I wasn’t there, but I’m guessing it may have been Aby Wolf’s album “Wolf Lords”. 

Dessa and Aby Wolf both have albums on Spotify. (I actually haven’t checked Aby’s music yet, and I should!)


my memory of the cover is a little different, but that’s pretty close (and human memory is imperfect anyway).

Many thanks!

Hi there,

On February 16th, we’ll change how listeners outside the US and Canada tune into 8tracks. 

What are we doing?

We’ll no longer stream from 8tracks’ servers to listeners outside the US and Canada; instead, we’ll offer the ability to tune into playlists on the 8tracks website via YouTube video playback. Unfortunately, listeners outside the US and Canada will no longer be able to stream playlists through the 8tracks iOS and Android apps.

Your 8tracks profile and playlists will not be affected and you will continue to be able to stream any playlists with tracks you’ve personally uploaded.

All of your playlists will continue to be accessible to listeners anywhere our content is available around the world. You will still be able to make and share playlists with everyone, however, your personal listening experience may be limited depending on which country you are in.

Later this year, we’ll offer listeners outside the US and Canada the ability to tune into all 8tracks playlists through an on-demand streaming partner’s website and native mobile apps.

Why are we doing this now?

In the US and Canada, 8tracks pays royalties to local collection societies for every track we stream. While we’ve neither actively marketed nor directly monetized 8tracks outside the US and Canada, we’re now seeking direct, global deals with record labels to allow our DJs to tap a full music library when curating a playlist; after all, many in our community no longer have local MP3 or AAC files from which to compile programming.

In order to ensure 8tracks’ existence for years to come, we’ve concluded – at least for now – that delivering our programming to listeners outside the US and Canada through a licensed on-demand partner is the best path forward.

We remain committed to bringing 8tracks to a global audience so all can join us in creating and discovering playlists for every taste, time and place.

CEO & founder, 8tracks

Dear 8tracks

Please note that I will not contribute to your community by way of creating playlists, if I cannot participate in your community, by way of listening to playlists.

Chumbuddies: giant marine animals you sleep inside of


Patchtogether’s Chumbuddies are a full range of plush machine mammal sleeping bags that you craw inside of before bed.

You can doss down with a giant squid (a “cuddle-fish!”), a killer whale(snore-ca!) or a giant shark (aaaah!). They also come in kids’ sizes.

About that link about ADHD in women.


So, most of the studies have been about ADHD in boys, and we know that ADHD in women usually gets misdiagnosed.

Here’s my question:

How do we know that, as the article states, women tend to have Inattentive ADHD?

[We mods had a super-long discussion about this. It’s below the break if you’re interested.]

Keep reading

Here is the article to which the ActuallyADHD mods are referring.

If you’re interested in neurosexism and how it affects the way people are diagnosed with ADHD (although the same principle applies to lots of neurobiological and psychological conditions) then this might be worth a read!

A Note About Rey

So everyone seems to be pretty hung up on who Rey is right? There are all these theories about whether she’s Luke’s daughter, or Obi Wan Kenobi’s granddaughter, or who knows what the fuck else.

But you know what I want?

I want Rey to be somebody and nobody.

Let Rey be an incredibly powerful, force sensitive individual and an abandoned child on a desert planet.

Let Rey be somebody because of how powerful she is, not because of who she is related to.

Let Rey be defined by her characteristics and traits and flaws, not by who her father or grandfather was.

Let Rey be important of her own accord.

November 2015 Commission: @prussanic-miscellanea

A commission for a good friend of a soft science kaiju. This one isn’t the keratinous warmachine of lore, but something geared much more towards, well, the sciences. Hence, it has much more expressive capabilities, and a limbset dedicated purely to handling finer materials. Inspired primarily by a Blue Glaucus.

Commissions are open!

So goddamn pretty.

During 1963, a KC-130F aircraft made history by landing and taking off from the aircraft carrier; USS Forrestal (CVA-59). The crew successfully negotiated 29 touch-and-go landings, 21 unarrested full-stop landings, and 21 unassisted takeoffs at gross weights of 85,000 pounds up to 121,000 pounds. 

Lockheed’s only modifications to the original plane included installing a smaller nose-landing gear orifice, an improved anti-skid braking system, and removal of the underwing refueling pods.

No tail hook…No catapult. Painted on the side of the fuselage; “LOOK MA, NO HOOK.”

The airplane became the largest and heaviest aircraft to ever land on an aircraft carrier, a record that stands to this day.

ADHD things I didn’t know until recently: ADHD has been found to be genetically linked to “Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder”. People who experience this usually fall asleep around 2 or 3 am and can be almost impossible to wake up in the morning for regular school or work times. Sometimes it gets better as they reach adulthood, but otherwise it is a lifelong disorder. Normal sleeping routines can be established, but they can be hard to keep because the brain will eventually reset its sleeping schedule to the later sleep time.

Note that this is not to be confused with insomnia because DSPD means having a biological clock with a later sleeping schedule, and usually people with DSPD do not have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.

@adhd-community @actuallyadhd I see asks about insomnia and trouble sleeping sometimes so I thought I’d tag your blogs B)

I find this really, really surprising. Not because it’s inherently unexpected, but because, for years as a teenager, I would describe my sleep pattern to people as like being “permanently jet-lagged”

Isaac Asimov’s Three Laws of Robertics

  1. A robert may not harm a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robert must obey orders given it by qualified personnel, unless those orders violate rule number one.
  3. A robert must protect its own existence, unless that violates rules one or two.


If science teaches us anything it’s to be critical of what we are taught so I’m super unimpressed with people who refuse to think critically about science itself and how science and society interact

Isaac Asimov's "Three Laws of Robertics"

  1. A robert may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robert must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robert must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
