Today we are shining a spotlight on Semiiina, a talented live singer and musician taking the virtual music scene by storm with her soulful performances that blend a range of styles and influences.

I interviewed Michelle Yeoh a few years ago about #StarTrekDiscovery and I mentioned offhand that I'd written an article about what seeing her use her accent on the bridge of a starship meant to me.
She stopped and said "Wait, that was YOU?"
And then proceeded to talk about how much that article had meant to HER and how it contributed to the success of the show.
I can't think about it without crying.
Friends have said I should do a cooking stream. I don't think I will, just cause, well, once you saw my face on screen, the next sound you'd hear are fists punching monitors across the world.
But if I did, it'd probably be something akin like Brutalmoose's BrutalFoods videos:
Happy Pi Day!
(I'm sad to say that I use the memnonic in the middle of the song to remember digits of pi)

Another fun plot point from Closetspace. Carrie gets her guitar smashed in an accident, and Victoria gifts her a guitar at her funeral. Originally, it was supposed to be Mike Nesmith's Black Beauty guitar (which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gzmxI6oisg - watch out for some flashing lights at the end) that I erroneously thought was stolen. Howe Victoria got a hold of it, we'd never know.
Instead I changed it to a pastel pink and maroon guitar that was gifted to me by some friends in Second Life.
I bet more people would vote in elections if voting stations played this music.
When I created Carrie for Closetspace (yes, the comic isn't dead, the artist is just trying to survive), I based her on Suzanne Vega because I loved the idea (and the sound) of a woman and a guitar and not much else.
What's funny, though, is that Closetspace's story in the comics is just part of a larger story I'd planned out just to make sure the continuity and where they were headed made sense. I had the idea that eventually she'd be a music producer in her 40s and would occasionally play in other's songs as a session player.
There's a sound in some songs where, when I hear them, I think "That's Carrie, playing cause so-and-so was sick that day." It's the sound of Mike Nesmith playing the guitar on the live track of the Monkee's Circle Sky (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhtfFpCRRaA) or Jonny Greenwood on Radiohead's "Optimistic" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQCJKWEFyG4) which also happen to be two of my fave songs.
I always imagine she can play on all sorts of different types of genres, but always brings a sort of electric country twang to her playing.
