When I'm not busy tracking the movement of my neighbors or my hairline, I can often be found spending my time rather constructively. While it may appear to the casual observer that I'm simply sitting around in a daze, I can assure you my brain is on fire trying to sort out the answers to all the BIG questions like who's going to get popped on the series finale of The Sopranos and could my whites could be whiter?
Now that I think I've cleared a little space in there, I've been busy catching up on some of my favourite blogs. As usual, I'm struck by all the unbridled creativity on parade. While I haven't known either of these two characters long in a blog sense, they both have projects on the go that are exciting and worth tracking.
John Donald Carlucci is planning to launch a web only free magazine called Astonishing Adventures Magazine. He's enlisted some A-List talent to contribute but is also seeking input and submissions from others interested in the pulp genre and more. Give this post a look and all you writers get cracking.
Another John, the one called Mr. Mutford, has been busy with his bid to take part in Canada Reads, a panel discussion on books with Canadian celebrities inciting us all to get reading. As an avid and interested reader, John would like to see real people (namely himself) represented on the panel. He has a Facebook petition set up that will hopefully land him front and centre with the powers that be. Have a look and help make him some headway. Then he won't blame us if he ends up an internationally ignored superstar.
If we can save just one child from the Jolie Pitts, all this strenuous typing will have been worth it.
Let it never be said that I'm not at least as useful as a pipe.
