Choose redemption, your happy ending's up to you.  
++ Kesha's new album, Rainbow, is honestly such a beautiful experience in every way possible. It isn't just emotionally raw, it is also uplifting and powerful and empowering and just so much fun, too. The positive vibe and message throughout is so encouraging and heartfelt, you can't help but feel good after listening to you and even feel for her, knowing that she is singing from the bottom of her very soul. For everything she's been through, this album represents her rebirth and growing stronger by moving forward, and I love and appreciate it so much. Kesha experiments with different songs and genres, her powerful vocals present in every track, and you can tell that every single song was a labor of love and she is just having fun recording them. It is both different but still authentic to who she has always been in her music, just without the restrictions she was placed on before. I'm so happy and proud of her, that she is able to finally release the music that she's been wanting to create for a long time, and she deserves all the support for this album that she poured her entire heart and soul into. I love you, Kesha. ❤

++ So, since I've been kind of talking lately about merchandising for some fandoms that have been or should be in need of a resurgence, I just discovered that the NBC store still has some BSG merch available. I don't know how long they've been in stock but some are pretty new to me since the last time I checked the site, especially the shirts. Definitely bookmarking this for later.

++ I have been so enraptured by this book publishing drama that occurred last week, which continues to keep going with the more things are exposed. This is honestly so fascinating and probably the most entertaining and intriguing drama that has happened in a long time, better than most fandom wanks in recent years. Just everything surrounding it and what continues to come out from the scam is just so unbelievably juicy, and I'm living for it. But it also has gotten me so curious about other drama or scandals that have happened in the world of publishing.

Yeah, the YA world seems to have been absolutely embroiled with that drama? It feels like such a weird caper heist gone wrong, because you'd think the people behind it would know getting on the NYT list would cause a splash?

I'm not part of the YA book community so I'm not familiar with these kinds of dramas that often go on in that world, but this has gotten me incredibly curious about the other past dramas and controversies that occurred in the past.

And you'd think, right? Perhaps they thought either a.) nobody would notice and they wouldn't get caught and this would be a piece of cake, or b.) this controversy/drama would hype up the book even more, because any publicity is good publicity and people love ~drama surrounding things so this would get it for sure noticed. But it obviously didn't go the way they planned it, and any chances of this woman getting a movie deal has gone out the window due to it being a scam, and this will no doubt not get her any more deals in the future because it's been exposed as such. IDK, IDK, but it's all very baffling and amusing at the same time.

Like, this whole thing was just one huge bizarre unraveling of ridiculousness. The scam itself was bad enough, but everything else surrounding it is what makes it so entertaining.

Afaik from having friends of friends who work in that area, it tends to circle a lot around if one series knocks the other down a peg on the NYT list? Other than that, I don't know if there's been anything quite like this.

I could see the any publicity is good publicity, but...idk, it just seems like a very poorly thought out plan? If they're going to throw actual money at it (assuming they are, cause books orders cost money still) you'd think they have been more careful with it instead of...this.
