Harvey Schmidt, of Tom and Harvey, has died - NY Times

My uncle, Tom Harvey, is a well known playwright, who with his writing partner, Harvey Schmidt, wrote many plays, including the beloved The Fantasticks.

There is a set of notepad paintings my parents have always had in their house by Harvey. It is basically a set of 6 small pieces of notepad paper, each with a different colored star, drawn in pencil and filled in with watercolor.

My late aunt, Tom's wife, gave them to my parents as a wedding gift while Tom and Harvey were working on The Fantasticks.

The colors for the stars were based on a scheme he was working on for the play.

I've always loved those notepad stars. They just have some kind of unexplainable magic.

Litecoin Cash (LCC) is, so far, a huge success

Pretty neat story with LCC. Forked from Litecoin (which really annoyed Litecoin creator Charlie much drama in the LTC), Litecoin Cash is moving up the charts, now at over $7 per.

I had a hunch it was a decent opportunity, so I bought a handful of Litecoin, since the Litecoin Cash team promised 10 free LCC for every LTC I had.

Now I have a bunch of both coins, so hopefully the LitePay release will be successful and take the LTC value up a notch, as well.

Here's a link to LitePay, in case you want to see if it's worth buying into Litecoin right now.

30 Rates - Bitcoin Price - Prediction vs. Reality

As everyone who is following or has invested in Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency in the world knows, the market has made a massive correction from its manic price explosion of late 2017. Fueled by the general population becoming aware of, and being able to more easily acquire Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, etc., market caps grew exponentially to staggering highs, then stalling and dropping steadily right back to where the bullish rally began around early December. As investors reached those peaks, some couldn't help cashing in, relying on their intuition, which continues to speak to the fact that the only reason they are in the game is to profit from the excitement of this budding technology. Blah, blah, blah...

There's a site I recently stumbled upon called 30 Rates - The Economy Forecast Agency, who post dated predictions of cryptocurrency just a little over a month into the future. I haven't looked into how these predictions are made, so feel free to investigate yourself, but I'm going to track the actual price per day compared to their prediction based on their table posted today, Wednesday February 7th, 2018. Their predictions are on rolling updates, but I'm going to lock their current predictions into this so we can really get a feel for the prediction vs. reality of Bitcoin's price.

I feel like there's more to say, for some reason, but I'll just let the data speak for itself throughout the next month. If I find anything interesting or notable, I'll probably do the same for Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Ripple.

Oh, it's dark, ain't it?
Oh, it gets dark, don't it?
But that's how life goes
The truth of it is
You can't have light without dark
You can't have alright without not-so-good
The grace of darkness
Is that just like the light
It's beautiful
Let it inspire you
To make beautiful things
That point others towards the light

I'm gonna do what the spirit says do

Can't wait for Norway
The fresh air in while speaking
Where inmates cook and ride bikes
And the sun paints sky with Northern light

How do you find Will Smith in the snow?
You look for the fresh prints

February 8th, 2018

Things are looking up, it seems
Just had the sweetest dream
Killed the ringer on my cell phone
Cut ties with computer screens
Man, I really lost my way
Straight up forgot how to play
Now it's all about the cool breaze
Sunbeams and fresh green
Chandler, won't you be my Priscilla?
Chandler, won't you be my Marie baby?

February 6th, 2018

In the heart of the mighty redwoods
A captain awaits his crew
The deep blue Pacific calls to me
Maybe someday it will call to you
I hope you're alright
I hope that you hope
That I'm alright, too
If you don't
I may never know
So, I'll just assume you do

February 5th, 2018

A peaceful world
Torn apart
By unexpected broken hearts
We fear and loathe
We fail to start
It's exponential
We have to stop
And I wonder if
If we'll ever know
Will this dissolve?
Will it all explode?
And I wonder if we're ever gonna let it go
Will we ever know?

February 4th, 2018

Arrowhead to arrowhead
Shared gravity
Still, I have energy
To help and to heal
To start fresh and real
Never at a loss
I can help
I can heal
I can build a road
Then a tower
With an open top
So the sun and moon can light your way up

February 3rd, 2018

I come in peace
I'm here to say
We share the ocean
We love to play
In holy ghost
We all feel strong
We're all insane
And I wonder if
If we'll ever know
Will this resolve?
Will it ever flow?
And I wonder if we're ever gonna let it go
Will we ever know?

February 2nd, 2018

At home
I love it
Smells so sweet

January 31st, 2018

I'm still a good man
With only one regret
That your respect for me may live only in the past
But if one had a time machine that really worked
I would pay them every penny I ever make
I would break the sound barrier going back
And risk all of humanity's future
For one last chance to be your true friend
