how far can you get in a blank world

(title borrowed (stolen?) from a youtube video that Silas started watching while I started to blog, and since I'm blanking on what to write about, it seemed very apt.)

just gonna blah de blah, since I don't have a topic in mind, and have nothing specific to blog about:

got another 2 rats added to the household today. Harper is taking care of these.

There's a blood moon eclipse tonight, but the cloud cover we're currently experiencing means we probably won't be able to see much of it.

we're days away from October, so... adios, 2015!

story idea for the taking - magic exists, but can only be done by people who are drunk. (the more intoxicated, the more powerful spells that could be done)

Hey, Mr DJ, I thought you said we had a deal

can we take a minute to complain about the current state of internet-radio? Cuz it's pretty horrible. (For me, at least.)

My much beloved Jelli has shut down (it's been over a year, actually. Still bummed.). (If I ever have millions of spare dollars, I'm totally going to revive it, because it truly was a genius concept)

So, after that shut down, I made the switch over to, which, while never 100% legal or moral (from the limited research I've done, it seems to have topped out around 10% for both?), it DID have a massive music library, and a pretty decent interface. But, then earlier this year, grooveshark shut down, too.

I moved on to, but it never functioned properly on my work computer (it often crashes our home computer too, so ...I dunno about that site.)

Spotify is firewalled.

Harper pointed me to, which is ...okay.

So now at work I listen to the online stream of 107.5, so I hear "Exes and Ohs" 40 times a day. When I tire of that, I switch over to a random Orlando alternative station I found that heavily focuses on 90s alternative.
Which is all okay, but I really want a station/website that plays a mixture of EVERYTHING. Why is that so hard to find? (and have it stay online permanently?)
