    K loves the heck out of her new iPad (best part is I FINALLY got her to use LastPass for her passwords. That's been a project almost two years in the making.)

    She's made one drawing on Procreate so far - it's an homage to Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate Series.

    Not too bad for her first digital creation of this nature.

    We've also backed a digital artist's Patreon, so she's learning a lot of neat tips and trick about how to create digital art. Excited to see what she comes up with.
    Glad they took care of you, to bad they can't also communicate with you. That are is fantastic!

    (Reminds me of a run I did around my old neighborhood - I saw this license plate that said I Drift For Taylor Swift)

    Hahaha thanks Brian!

    Jason, you're getting out of control with your devil music and Twitter swearing. Should you go to your room and think about what you've done, young man.

    Be careful listening to all that Swift music. You'll end up in one of her songs.

    That's an awesome job that Katie did! I'm glad she finally received her iPad.

    For the most part, I'm a hard rock heavy metal guy (full disclosure - I'm currently obsessed with Taylor Swift's music at the moment . . .) and have found that the memoirs from these musicians are fascinating.

    My favorite one I think is probably Alex Skolnick (Testament, Savatage.) His book - Geek to Guitar Hero - was a great read and definitely gave me a new opinion of a heavy metal guitarist.

    I never listened to Priest all that much; but I know that Halford's story has got to be fascinating. I might have to pick that one up.

    Latest addition, one I've been looking forward to since it was announced - it didn't disappoint, amazing production.
    Nice, Lincoln -- that was one I missed out on, unfortunately. I've seen some interior shots of it as well, and it just looks terrific.

    Drat, I didn't know there was a signed edition available. I ordered the unsigned version from Amazon because I thought that was the only option.

    Indeed, this should be an interesting book. I look forward to reading it.

    Yesterday I got Wyrd and Other Derelictions by Adam L.G. Nevill. This is a new, slim, signed collection by the author. Adam Nevill publishes hardbacks, signed, of a lot of his books. I gather after the big Covid 19 shutdown earlier this year customers just gobbled up his signed hardbacks since there were only paperback copies remaining. I got WaoD because I'm on the author's email newsletter and Adam Nevill decided those on his email newsletter got first dibs on this new signed collection.

    Copies still remain: https://www.waterstones.com/book/con.../9781472279507.

    Go on, you know you want one. Don't let book-budget rules hold you back -- rules are for suckers.

    His story has all the ingredients to make a fantastic memoir. I am resisting at the moment.

    Well, Best Buy never technically contacted me via phone or email as promised, but my yelling at them on Twitter did get a response.

    Their responses were less than ideal. Once they said they will send me a replacement iPad, I was told it won't be here until October 20th, which if you know how to calendar is completely unacceptable and makes no sense. And then my order status was updated to Preparing for Shipment. Their website gave me the option to change from shipping to pickup at a local store THE VERY SAME DAY. But changes couldn't be made since it was preparing to ship. I also tried the change shipping speed which would have delivered it THE NEXT DAY. But again, unable to make changes.

    The issue isn't fully resolved I still don't have a replacement iPad - but I do have tracking information for it! Should have been here yesterday, but is now scheduled for today. Fingers crossed!

    The next time - IF I order from BB again - will definitely be picked up at a store. Not dealing with this again.
    No doubt in-store is the way to go.

    The stress and hassles can't be removed but it does sound like they are getting you a replacement. The service sound very poor though.
