Dimension Thieves Tunes

The solid beat of Jungle from X Ambassadors, Jamie N Commons caught my attention on TV- it was used in a commercial for The Walking Dead, but I caught a bit of the tune and had to find it and listen to the whole thing.


That beat at the beginning- that's Dimension Thieves all the way.  Slammed, pounded-- the ship, the crew, the dimensions they discover...the hard-hitting beat matches the way I think of the whole adventure.  The crew of the Karolina Nine are in for it.  That's why this was the first song I chose for the playlist.  

 If you want more of the DT playlist,

Dimension Thieves Episode #3 - Character Interview with Calerbius Brown

This week, we have the author’s pick for an interview.  I’ve chosen Calerbius Brown, the cantankerous mechanic with a social chip on his shoulder.  I hope you enjoy getting to know him a little better!

Misty:  How are you Calerbius?  It’s good to have you here for a chat.
Calerbius:  I don’t want to be here.  I got things to do.
Misty:  I’ll try to make it quick, alright?
Calerbius:  Can you make it over? 
Misty (laughs):  No, I’m sorry, I can’t do that.  People are dying to find out a little more about the man who is Calerbius Brown...good guy or villian?  We're dying to know!
Calerbius: (harumphs)  (scratches his butt)
Misty:   I see you're not up for a soul-searching interview.  How about we just play a short round of This or That?
Calerbius:  How about we just end this and let me get on to all that.
Misty:  (sighs)  Ok, Calerbius, first question.  Would you rather be a mechanic or a cook?
Calerbius:  (screws up face)  What kinda question is that?  I don’t wanna be neither.  I shoulda been president, that’s what I'd rather.  And if I was, it'd be a law that people can’t do none of these useless interviews…
Misty: (tries to hold polite smile)  Alright, you'd rather be president.  How about this one:  Would you rather live on Antythera or choose another dimension?
Calerbius:  What business is it of yers?  What are you doin, anyway?  Writin’ a book?
Misty: (straight face)  Listen,  Calerbius, I’m the author here and we're supposed to do a character interview.  If you’re going to be uncooperative, I’m going to have to edit your answers.
Calerbius:  You’d like that wouldn’t ya?  All you people—Level A’s and authors and snot nose captains…alla you think you’re so high and mighty—
Calerbius:  You this loud all the time? 
Misty: (throws up hands)  I give up.  Calerbius Brown, everybody…

Calerbius: (nods with an extended lip)  Donchya forget it, neither.

To find out why Calerbius is such a cantankerous old fart,

SPOILER ALERT!  If you haven’t read The Dimension Thieves, Episode 3 yet, this will certainly spoil your fun. NO PEEKING.  The only way to remedy this is for you to get yourself quickly over to an ebook store, snatch up the first three episodes and read like the wind.  Don’t you come back here until you’re through.  Then, and only then, come on back and read what went wrong in one of the fan fave scenes!

Scene: Katuna Baro to show Force the Captain’s Quarters

“A Captain does need to know his ship,” Katuna says from the stairs. 
Both actors, Force and Pawl, turn to see Katuna Baro holding the rail at the top step.  Unfortunately, they also see the wardrobe malfunction Katuna is unknowingly sporting.  From her mark, Katuna’s left hoot is not exposed to Force yet, but plays peek-a-boo with Pawl.
“I’ve taken the tour already,” Katuna says, ignoring Pawl as he flails, pointing to her exposed niplet in way of warning.  Katuna continues to ignore him, since he is off-camera, assuming he is just trying to sabotage her scene.  The actors enjoy doing that to one another—a challenge to see who can successfully finish their scene, despite distractions. 
However, Force notices Pawl’s frantic gestures and as Katuna steps forward to take Force’s arm, he catches a glimpse of the exposure .
“I could show you around, if you like,”  Katuna continues, dutifully ignoring Pawl as Force’s eyes bulge. 
“Thank you,” Force  replies as he tries to jockey her sideways in order to block any x-rated filming. Katuna, thinking Force is trying to steal her shot, shoves him and the strain in his tone is detectable as he finishes the line, “But this tour isn’t for pleasure.”
“At least let me show you where your quarters are, Captain,” Katuna purrs, elbowing her way back into the shot.  The whole dress has given up the ghost and is flapping like a saggy pirate flag over Katuna’s open treasure chest.  She thrusts back her shoulders, going full-Superbowl-Jackson.   “At least let me show you that.”
Pawl begins to guffaw as the camera man spots the problem.  The lens zooms in and Force finally puts out a hand, blocking the shot as Katuna finally looks down and gapes before pinching together the opening of her malfunctioning dress.

I am wildly attracted to enormous, massively strong, heavily endowed minds that can jackhammer my intellect and make my toes curl.  Nothin' beats a dude with a well-hung medulla.

There's nothing sexier in this world than a mature man who doesn't lose his glue over the silly stuff in life.   In all the books I love, the common thread is that the hero is mature.  If he's got a great sense of humor, then wrap him up and send him home with me.  I'll introduce him to the rest of my book boyfriend harem.  

I don't know that there are many of us ladies that don't love a man with a big, firm brain.  I mean, he doesn't have to recite poetry, but I do love those men that have a grip on the world.  They read, they have analytic minds, they think for goodness sake!  A man who's not afraid of thinking or admitting to it is seriously sexy!  

I suppose it all has something to do with recognizing that it is a woman's brain and how the man handles it that makes him so attractive.  Hallelujah for some muscle, but seriously...if a man can flex his intellect in the right direction...well, to quote E.L James:  oh my!

Bottom line:  bring on the brains, boys.  BRING. IT. ON.
