There is no real writing news to speak of. I am still editing away at The Bleeding Room; my story for Vermin is patiently waiting for me to finish it; I subbed a brand new story that came out of nowhere over the weekend to The First Line; still waiting on artist specs for Birdwatching From Mars.
So, as I tend to do, here are some miscellaneous tidbits that really have nothing to do with writing. I give you one recommendation and a rant of sorts (albeit a friendly one).
The recommendation – I have already mentioned this on Twitter today (I refuse to use the word tweet), but if you have not yet given Fringe the attention it deserves, you are missing out. Last week’s episode was a great horror-esque story that made me miss The X-Files terribly (but in a good way) and last night’s episode…whew! If you saw it, you will instantly know what awesome imagery I am about to refer to that came towards the end of the show. It was without a doubt the best 10 minutes of television I have seen in quite some time. I highly recommend heading over to FOX.com and watching it ASAP.
The friendly rant – It’s not really a rant at all. This is concerning an issue I have actually personally contacted people about. We all know that Blogger seems to win more people over than WordPress. And because of that, I believe Blogger has gotten snooty. If you are operating on Blogger, please, for the sake of us WordPressers, make sure your comments allow the name/URL option rather than the Live ID nonsense which really never works at all. Quite a few folks that comment on this blog are Bloggers and when I check out their blogs, I am unable to leave any blog love. It makes me sad and forces me to resent Blogger just a little but more.
But hey, WordPress isn’t all steak and potatoes either. The jerks still have no way of embedding music into posts (that I can find).
Okay, now back to the Day Job…
