We are leaving for Memphis tommorow night. Heading past St. Louis and then getting a hotel room. Have the Liberty Bowl parade on Thursday to look forward to and then the game on Friday. Wish me a Purple Victory!

So your sitting there reading your copies of Lucky Creature Attacks # 3 or your Peas Almost Action figure set (which strangely has seen a lot of orders lately) and your wondering what’s coming out next from us? I’m kind of wondering/pondering that as well.
I can say for sure that Lucky Creature Attacks #4 will be out next fall as that is an annual anthology I don’t see myself tiring of producing anytime soon. I have one written thing that I’m looking for a collaborator on that may or may not be through Lucky Creature.
On the music side I think I have solved my dilemna of putting things to a physical press in this itunes world. The solution, although I’m not ready to talk about it is economical as well as environmentally friendly. We are persuing if there are any artists who feel the same way we do about it. If there is then you’ll see new music from us in 2009. If not, then maybe another day.
I doubt you’ll get another poster from us this year, but never say never. There should be a new His World Her World after Jessica graduates from Grad school this spring.
In the online world there will continue to be Peas adventures every Friday and con-news.com is a beast that could probably run without any support from me, it’s founder. We are toying with launching a new project like that, but in a different medium.
And then there’s me branching into Etsy which has been very fun and a nice release for my silly paintings. Things get more personal, but I’m pretty proud of that fact.
So what’s next for Lucky Creature? Sometimes I wonder if I’ll know when I see it. But if I do, you’ll be the first to know.
Jessica just spoiled me rotten. I got lots of awesome Blu Rays including the best movie of the year Wall-E and an awesome I-POD touch!!! Yes. I have joined the digital revolution. Also got a wicked cool Joker Munny and some artwork. A great Christmas presents. Now time to go play with my new toys. And I get to open my brothers presents later on actual Christmas. I painted Jessica a special Printmaker Creature as part of her gifts. Here she is.
It’s one week till Christmas boys and girls. What are you getting?
I’m hoping for some Blu-rays and a nice warm hot chocolate.
In two weeks I’ll be at the Liberty Bowl. Some live college football for me is a nice treat for me these days and anytime it’s the Pirates it makes it worth my time.
Planning my spring mini trips, I know Southern Graphics Council in March is penned in and I’d also like to make Pokketokon, Capricon, Marscon, and the Midwest Gaming Classic all depending on the weather.
Been writing some again, which is fun, even if it leads nowhere.
Well anyway, hope everyone is doing well!
Add another piece to next May’s exciting movies or is it?
You be the judge from Fox’s first trailer for Wolverine in Quicktime on a weird Myspace page
I’m not so sure about the Gambit casting choice and the final scene with the helicopter is laughable. Thoughts?
Check out this awesome Flickr Set from Artist Bre Pettis. The images are supposedly from a book about ways to die from Electrocution published in Germany in 1931. Cool Huh? Who new there were so many ways.
So much to do and I find myself not really interested in doing any of it. I think the next couple of weeks are going to fly by way to fast as I have christmas at work, and christmas at home, then Bowl trip to Memphis and a possible drive to Peoria in January. Should be a fun couple of weeks, especially if this blasted snow goes away.
I will be going back to Memphis on January 1st to watch my Pirates play in the Liberty Bowl. I find it funny the role of Memphis in my life these last 13 years. That’s how long it has been since East Carolina went to the Liberty Bowl last. I was still in High School then and I made the trek with my parents to watch ECU beat Stanford on a cold dreary day. Later, I would live in Memphis for exactly one year and the city left me with some good moments, but overall, not really my kind of vibe. I’m debating where I should hit on my very short stay, coming in the 1st and leaving the 3rd. Even with only spending a year in a place, you can develop lots of favorites and it will be hard to do any of them justice. I’m interested to see how downtown has progressed. When I went as a teenager it was a wasteland besides Beale st. While I lived there the Fed Ex Forum had been built, and the Peabody Place mall made downtown nice and safe and more than just Beale St. Autozone Park is one of my favorite Baseball stadiums I’ve ever been in. Now Tower Records is bankrupt so I wonder what anchors that mall? I guess I’ll find out in less than three weeks. Of course, a Pirate Victory and I’ll be happy with the rest of the festivities, whatever they may be.
I remember the first time I got on the web. Freshman year in college. Email was all green and just text. So much information was out there. It was amazing. And then things got more and more graphic-y and things started to slow down. Then came the high speed revolution and media/tv and music started flowing through the inter-tubes at an amazing pace. Every Jo-Blo had a blog(me as well) and we just started putting nonsense on the net.
I find myself streamlining my web browsing experience even as I visit a far larger array of sites. Maybe it’s because of that. First I stopped going to the traditional sites and moved more to the blogs that give you just enough info, and if you want more you could go to the provided link. Now I’m streamlining even more, using sites Like Twitter, to just get the headlines from my favorite destinations and only leaving twitter if something appeals to me.
It’s even affected how much I blog here. In the past I would make a post if I liked a movie or went to a show. Now I get lazy and write a sentence on a movie through Twitter. “That was a good movie.” What used to take a paragraph can be summed up in one sentence. Does it make it interesting? Not really, but you know where I stand without reading through my reasons why.
I don’t really know how I feel about the lessening of content, but it’s here and I’m sure there is another new Twitter, waiting around the corner for all of us.
