Free Form Comments

Say whatever you want to in the comments to this post -- random, off topic thoughts, ideas, suggestions, questions, recommendations, criticisms (which can be anonymous), surveys, introductions if you have never commented before, personal news, self-promotion, requests to be added to the blog roll and so on. If a week goes by and I have failed to add you to the blog roll TELL ME TO DO IT AGAIN, and KEEP TELLING ME UNTIL IT GETS DONE. I can be lazy about updating the non-post parts of this site. Remember these comments can be directed at all the readers, not just me.

ALSO. You can use this space to re-ask me questions you asked me before that I failed to answer because I was too busy (but now might not be). That is often the reason I fail to get back to people, and on a blog, after a few days, the comments thread dies and I just kind of forget about it. Let's use this space to fix that, because it does need to be fixed; I look like a jackass sometimes, leaving people hanging. I will TRY to respond to any questions here.

AND you can use this space to comment on posts that are old enough that no one is reading the comments threads anymore. For example, if you thought of a great quote for the great quote commonplace book, but now no one is reading that, you could put it here.You do not have to have a blogger account or gmail account to post a comment -- you can write a comment, write your name at the bottom of your comment like an e mail, and then post using the "anonymous" option.

WRITING FOR THIS BLOG. If you think your free form comment here might be better as its own post, but you do not want it to be public yet, email it to me. My email address is available on my blogger profile page. If I think it will work on this site, your post will be published here with your name in the title of the post. You can propose what you will, I am always looking for reviews of games, tv, movies, music and books.

If you think what you have to say -- new topic or comment on an existing topic -- would be better to hear than to read, use the CALL ME button on the toolbar on the right.

I am having a pajama party tomorrow which is really an excuse to show of the wii and it's all masquerading as a "site-specific" art piece (is that "an 'site-specific' art piece?") for my history of design master's class.

there will be actual pajamas involved. geoff, you don't have to run away, but I will understand if you do.

that is all I wanted to say.

I put together a Satacracy 88 playlist over at Youtube. For anyone that is interested in the show, all you have to do is hit the "play all" option and Youtube will play through the entire series for you.

Seen Iron Man yet, Geoff? I like how you can almost draw a straight line of evolution from the movie to Fraction's book, without Invincible Iron Man relying on much previous knowledge.

There's the theme of Obadiah's Tech Vs. Tony's Tech Vs. Zeke's tect, that's sort of fun to watch.

Also Matt starts off with another reference (I've only read the previews, so I don't know the whole story), this time around to Warren Ellis. Or rather a structure gimmick he has of "Real Life Factoids -> Real Life Allegories -> business meeting -> Terrible and explicit violence," which is kind of fun. Knowing Fraction's work, it's probably used as a springboard in the same vein as Astonishing X-men playing off New X-men.
