If you go, tell me about it. Make me jealous.

Hey, It Still Exists!

Despite my lazy ass barely updating this here smidgen on the web, it continues to be. And despite the lack of activity here. I am still plugging away at whatever the hell it is I’m trying to do with my life.

I’m setting a goal of a post every week for the summer and I hope you five that still check this place out on occasion (hmm, wazzat? Down to four? Oh, ok) will feel free to give me a hard time if I don’t stick to that.

So watch this space for something new next week and in the meantime, here is a picture of a three legged cat:

The name is Sucha. As in, “This cat is sucha pain in my ass.”

The Hilarious World of Depression

“A show about clinical depression… with laughs?”

John Moe, former host of the late great and sorely missed radio show “Wits,” is here with a new podcast exploring the world of depression through the lens of comedy. As a member of the first club and a fan of the second, it just seemed like something I could get into. And it is.

First episode is with another favorite of mine, Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s “Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!”

A Jen Dixon Original

I have had a very good week. Hung out with some friends, fired off some Nerf guns, took some pictures that I’m happy with, did a sketch that I’m happy with and something happened that I’m not quite ready to talk about (but soon, dear readers.) And to cap it off, in the mail today I received this:

Dragon's Teeth

An original piece of art by Jen Dixon, who has been mentioned here before. I love it and am honored to have it. Jen is having an exhibition of her work starting next week and I hope it is a raging success. She also sent me some post cards of her work.

Oh Deer! Bite Your Tounge Bring It Back Down Taking the Control Back Oath Mask

Thank you, Jen. Thank you.

Let Me Tell You a Story

SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!

Starting this Sunday I am embarking on an interactive project. Who am I interacting with? Well, hopefully with some of you! Leave a comment for this post with either a story title or a one or two sentence scenario and over the next couple of weeks I will write stories based on some of my favorite ideas or maybe even all of them! Some stories may only be flash (1000 words or less), and some will be longer depending what kind of groove I am in.

I think this will be a fun project for everyone involved. And as another thought, if it goes well, there are plenty of places now that will do on demand printing and so everyone who participates can get an actual physical book!

And don’t worry, I still have plenty of stories of my own rollin’ around the ol’ mellon. The idea comes from something Harlan Ellison used to do. (not that I would ever compare myself to Ellison, man’s a genius.)

So, I hope this is as interesting to you as it is to me. I will leave it open from now to 12:00 am CST Sunday May 3. Please say if it is a title or a synopsis.

!!Edited to add:I am extending the date for submissions by two weeks because I am having fun!!

Hope to see your comments!

Bill
