Trying to gain a Mac version of Semagic was a monumental failure. So, now, I’m trying out MarsEdit. We’ll see how it turns out. Not really much to report at the mo. I may be using Flickr a bit more, since this application is more friendly with that image-sharer than it is with Photobucket. I’d never been comfortable.
I’m still viciously focused on the proliferation of All Things Shriek. It can be sometimes frustrating, as I’m sure I don’t have nearly the commercial cred as any one of the band members, but they seem to be a bit cavalier about the concept of Internet advertising. So there’s a bit of a rock rock I am incessantly beating my head against, yet I cannot seem to stop. My latest effort in getting the Shrieks bit more commercially friendly, is not only releasing the original version of their video for Recessive Jean, but also releasing a kind of Pop-Up-Video version, giving tidbits of information about the band (past, present, future), as well as the new song and upcoming album. We’ll see how that goes over. I have my bits crossed.
Fey Publishing sent me three pictures of the possible cover of the third Vampire Relics novel, The Augury of Gideon. This is the one I fancied most. We’ll see how it turns out in the end. At least, finally, the book will reach the world, after an inexcusable amount of time from the last release, all of which was my fault.
I’m already working on book four, which is a stand-alone, at this point. It’s entitled The Harming Tree, which was a homemade instrument Barry made back in the late 80s/early 90s. My version of the tree is a bit more demonic ~ big surprise there, and it also based on the contorted filbert tree outside my SC home.
Lately, I’ve been obsessing on the brilliance that Zach Sherwin. Sadly, he has cut his hair, but that hasn’t stopped him from being a word genius and a modern poet of high regard. Here’s a picture of him, when he was still going by the name MC Mr. Napkins.
It is here that I must freely admit my pathetic entry into the world of Cougardom. Have pity on me.
