Involuntary idleness leaves one with a LOT of time to think. You know what they say: “In works of labour, or of skill, I would be busy too; For Satan finds some mischief still For idle hands to do.” Isaac Watts (1674-1748) Here’s what’s been on my mind lately…
You ever have a really good time one day, then wake up the next morning and feel like a truck hit you? Yeah?
I’ve been incognito of late. I haven’t talked to you good folks in a while so I crawled out of my hole to have a whine and whinge, and to see how many of you are in the same situation. It’s the start of a new year – a year I know will have a [...]
So here’s the deal with all this review blog stuff. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has decided that blogs and other similar opinion websites should disclose when a reviewed item has been supplied by the manufacturer/vendor/seller/etc., or when a manufacturer/vendor/etc. has paid for said review. A “full disclosure” kind of thing.
It should come as no surprise to any of you that I am a fan of science-fiction. I love it in all mediums – books, movies, television, manga, graphic novels, and good ol’ comic books. It’s all good to me. Love Heinlein, Bradbury, LeGuin, Asimov, Herbert, Zelazny, etc. And lately, I am finding sci-fi romances [...]
If anyone asked Nathan Kamp, ubiquitous (and delicious) cover model, he’d answer: Oh just creating my own web show about cooking, family, and living. Go here to watch this beautiful man cook up a storm. You’ll drool for multiple reasons.
I stumbled on this link via a twitter by The Girl With a One-track Mind. It’s an amazing article on erotica covers that made me go “Hmmmm…” I would like to see more beefcake on my hetero erotica covers, now that I think about it (notwithstanding the craptastic Ellora’s Cave covers). It would be nice [...]
And Sybil wonders why I like my paper books. This kind of puts things in perspective…
Some people are just too creative for their own good. Seriously. “Overly” creative people seem to be driven mad by their creative genius. Just look at Van Gogh and Basquiat. What is it that makes a sculptor, author, actor, etc., go insane? (And for the purposes of this Pondering, I’m lumping all creative types under [...]
As you know by now, we’re hosting a TGTBTU TBR Pile Beauty Contest. All you have to do to win is take a photo of your TBR pile – in costume, in drag, or just in disarray – and email it to redwyne @ gmail . com (minus the spaces). The ducks will pick finalists [...]
Welcome to… TGTBTU’S FIRST (and probably last) ANNUAL TBR PILE BEAUTY CONTEST !! Never let it be said that we ducks here at TGTBTU can’t laugh at everyone else ourselves. By now, everyone has seen Sandy’s TBR pile. Thinking of her pile, and my own, I started to wonder how many TBR piles are out [...]
Go back and look on the main TGTBTU page, in the lower left corner at Duck Sauce Theater. You’ll see a short interview with “Usain Bolt” – the Fastest Man on Earth. I swear – it’s real! No really!
Just in case you are wondering, Gwen broke the sidebar. We are working on fixing it. Sorry about that….
My kind of guys, s’all I’m sayin’. Listen to the NPR Morning Edition short blurb here. — Vandals in Hot Water for ‘Fixing’ Typo on Historic Grand Canyon Sign Saturday , August 23, 2008 PHOENIX – When it comes to marking up historic signs, good grammar is a bad defense. Two self-styled vigilantes against typos [...]
I recently read this blog post about a reader/writer who has fallen in love with their Kindle. It’s making me rethink my thunk on Kindle: No way – don’t like a book retailer dictating a reader to me; feels too oligarchical to my silly American feelings; and Amazon “cheats” by releasing books on Kindle three [...]
