What's New... Elsewhere?

By now, I'm sure most -- if not all -- of you have given up on my ever finishing Old Home Week, the multi-parter I began last October. Well, I will be finishing it, but I want to wait until I have time to devote to it, which frankly, won't be for a couple of months or more. (At that point, I'll probably re-post the first three segments.)

Regular readers know that I've been dealing with a lot of crap in the real world lately, so I'm not going to dwell on that right now. And when I have had time to devote to blogging, I've been sticking to shorter posts (for me, that is) here, and to the plotting/writing sessions for Simpson/Lynch Studios: Pleasantview, the blog I share with my once-and-future writing partner, Skip Simpson. (Skip also has a solo blog, Skip's Stuff, by the way!)

If you're not reading Simpson/Lynch Studios: Pleasantview, you're missing out on some of the most creative stuff I -- and by "I," I really mean "we," in this case -- have done! The blog started out as a place to talk about our collaborative projects, past and present, but has proven to have a life of its own. It's transformed into a soap opera of sorts, featuring storylines concerning "The Skipster" and "The Foxster" -- younger-looking, somewhat idealized, incredibly successful and rich versions of Skip and myself! -- as well as a great supporting cast.

I want to announce an upcoming internet crossover "event," the Grand Opening of the Kewl Beanz!TM coffeehouse on January 26th! But Kewl Beanz!TM is hardly "just" a coffeehouse; the team of Skipster and Foxster never do anything in a small way!

We're hoping that plenty of Blogger-bloggers sign up to participate. Those who don't will hopefully still enjoy reading our posts on the SLP site.

So, as the slogan goes, "Be There Or Be Square!"

Thanks for your time.

  3. @AngelMay: Awww, that's sweet. Coincidentally, I just left a comment on your incredible December 17th post.

    @Baino: Are you referring to the free booze, or is that all you'll be wearing?

  5. @Ronda: Neither can I!

    @Brian: Since the KB menu promises "More Than 47 Varieties of Flavored and Non-Flavored Coffee and Tea Available," there should be something for everybody... especially since the "flavored" designation applies to those fortified with liquor! And if you sign up now, you'll be the first guy to do so!

  6. Hi! Silver Fox,
    How are you doing?

    @Betsy: You might wear the cape? Oh, sh... I mean, that's... umm... nice.

  10. I'm gogin there now to sign up! :)

    BTw, shorter posts are very good for blogs reading as users most often scan computer text--usability studies measuring eye patterns show this again and again, even if not intended.

  11. Heh. Not sure how to respond to that. Brevity is not my strong point.

    Glad you'll be at the event!
