  • I must confess to finding human-powered gadgets very cool – if all tvs and video games were powered by exercise bikes, would America have an obesity epidemic?

Linkity Peeps


  • Cute game, although it may cause cubicle workers to weep uncontrollably… (Thanks, Jase!)



  • The bad ex service… make sure you hover your cursor over the comic for additional text!
  • My kitties did not enjoy this black cat meow mix video. At all. Chaos was so sure that I was hiding another kitty in my laptop that he got mad and started to act out. (Thanks? Lisa!)

Teh Cute

  • Fetching kitty! (Both Chaos and Mayhem are fetching kitties – in both senses of the words.)

Reading Update
Seriously, was this my week to read about mysterious guys or what?! You’ll see. πŸ™‚
Ruthless Pursuit (Lost Shifters, Book 6) by Stephani Hecht. ebook. Good paranormal m/m romance continuing the story of the search to find the Lost (Feline) Shifters, who were abducted when they were young and raised by humans. This installment is about trying to capture the criminally inclined Andrew.
Man and Wolf by Kate Roman. ebook. Decent paranormal m/m romance about a vet who meets and immediately connects with a mysterious guy who brings in his poisoned dog. I enjoyed this one, although an entire storyline of menace never really played out to be anything. Plus the sex-to-story ratio was a bit skewed.
Touch of a Wolf by Jez Morrow. ebook. Very good paranormal m/m romance about a grad student who just caught his boyfriend cheating and moved out. He has an uncharacteristic sexual encounter in an alley with a mysterious guy he runs into on the street – who later shows up on his fire escape – and his life is changed, possibly forever.
Wicked Cool by Val Kovalin. ebook short. Very good short m/m romance about a guy with a junk removal business who becomes very intrigued by a mysterious property manager he meets while on a job. Can he deal with the unknown, or will all the secrets drive them apart?
His Gift by Clare London. ebook short. Very good short m/m romance about a guy who wakes up injured in a rainy ditch, with no memory of how he got there. He manages to make it to an old house, where he meets a handsome, mysterious man and his life takes on a dream-like quality.
Bound by Blood (Soul Mates, Book 1) by Jourdan Lane. ebook. Very good paranormal m/m romance about a bartender with a vampire phobia who slowly realizes that not only is the hot guy he’s been ogling a vampire, he’s the Master vampire of the city… (I can definitely tell that Lane was influenced by Anne Rice’s early Vampire Chronicles and LKH’s early Anita Blake books. It works.)
Ethan’s Choice (Kindred Spirits, Book 1) by Jude Mason & Jenna Byrnes. ebook. Decent paranormal m/m romance about an analytical guy who’s considering buying the seaside inn he’s vacationing at. But why are the current owners selling it after only six months? And could the hunky handyman possibly be gay?
Almost Home by Nicole Gordon. ebook short. Intriguing short m/m story about two guys who’ve been friends for years, while one has been going through some rough things that just ended with his father’s death. Sadly, this book simply stops, with no resolution of any sort. However, I did leave a question for Nicole Gordon on her blog and she’s working on a sequel.
What They Say About Love by Alexi Silversmith. ebook short. Very good short m/m romance about a guy who breaks up with his girlfriend instead of proposing to her as he’d intended. He decides to go out and pick up a guy to explore a side of himself he’s kept under wraps since college…
The First Real Thing by Cat Grant. ebook. Good m/m romance about a male escort who picks up the wrong guy in a bar and finds himself in an actual relationship… with a guy who doesn’t know what he does for a living.
Not Anymore by Em Woods. ebook short. Good m/m romance about a guy who’s on vacation in Hawaii with his sister and her boyfriend when his attraction to a guy who approaches him on the beach outs him to his family. Things get really complicated when his nasty ex shows up and then the identity of the guy from the beach is revealed. Despite a few niggles, this was an enjoyable read and I’ll definitely look for future books from Em Woods.
Vince by J.M. Snyder. ebook. Pretty good young adult m/m story about two guys who’ve been best friends since they were little… until, when they’re 14, one confesses he’s in love with the other and gets laughter in return.
Just the Right Notes by Sean Michael. ebook. Good kinky m/m romance about an architect and a composer who periodically escape to their cabin for a weekend of D/s play. Will that be enough to keep them grounded when their lives go into crisis?
Prisoner of the State by Alex Morgan. ebook short. So-so short kinky m/m about a police chief who abducts a guy he pulled over for speeding and keeps the guy in his basement as a sex slave. This would’ve been better if it had been fleshed out more – it read more like a story outline at points.

  1. I don’t text either. (Of course, my phone is way old with no actual keyboard besides the numbers. I’m not in a hurry to update though.)

    Love the rest of the linkies as usual! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Arggh. Crash before I could post. Sigh.

    The kids NEVER uses her phone for talking, or rarely. It’s texts, but not 3000 a month. I get the bill and see how many. She and I usually text each other and I text a few others, but I don’t talk on the phone either.

    Loved the push pin art, kind of like lightbrite. The wool art was cool too.

    I have Val’s book but haven’t read it yet. Read a few of those others, did like Alexi’s a lot and must get Stephani’s. Need to do some shopping this weekend. I really enjoyed the Soul Mates books, they get much more complicated relationship-wise as things go one. It is NOT an easy relationship but really well done.

  3. I have to admit that I prefer text messaging to phone calls. But I prefer email to phone calls too, so it is not surprising.

    I find the small format of the text message (and thus of Twitter) helpful in encouraging me to be succinct without resorting to obtuse abbreviations.

  4. It’s amazing what Disney does with horrible tales! “…and everybody dies.”

    Loved OK GO and True Mud. I thought the dog might react to the Meow Mix, but he just twitched his ears in his sleep.

    I need to get caught up with Stephani’s Lost Shifters. And Soul Mates: *sigh*

  5. Wow, another great Friday of linkitys!! And thanks for the mentions.

    I loved the Interactive Zombie movie. I didn’t get all the way through without dying but it was so much fun.

    The pizza cutter and the Mario push pin art are cool.

    Looks like you had a great reading week. I’ve read a few of these and have a few more to read.

    Happy Friday! πŸ™‚

  6. Sock photos? What??!?!

    I love EPBOT. Love. And have you seen the Tetris blanket on Rav? I forget if it’s a knit or crochet project, but it’s cool nonetheless.

    Happy Punctuation Day! πŸ˜‰

  7. That book video is a production marvel, a lot time and effort went into that one. Wow..

    The potential Supreme Court ruling is scary! yikes.

    This one really is a flood of linkety Chris! Thank you for all your hard work..

    Mayhem, lol you are too funny, enjoy that wooly sock.. πŸ˜‰

  8. Hey, long time no write…on my part. I know, shame on me! *slaps hand*

    Very nice roundup of links, I like!

    On the top left corner of the HIS GIFT cover, I think that’s the same guy on “The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance” cover. Looks very familiar. πŸ˜‰

    Hhm, woolly, huh? May it looks like you need some better tasting treats. LOL!

  9. Loved the Dolph/Unicorn video. Hee. And the manta ray! And the octopus video (on the same page)!

    The best part was reading the comments on the Invisible Ink story…

  10. I’ve still not got round to an ereader but I’m intrigued by eInk. After reading that essay, I’m going to stick to paper books for a little longer. I have some of the books that I had at school and given to me by friends (you and Jeanne :)) and they make me smile when I see them πŸ™‚

    Origami kitties sooooo cute πŸ™‚ but not as cute as fetching kitties. Tamyra likes to play fetch and she likes to lie on the keyboard, too!
