Item: A few typos were pointed out to us in todayâ€™s comic.Â Thanks to Jason and SCAScott for being so attentiveâ€”your help is truly appreciated!
Item: Beginning today, we are offering the Johnny Saturn wallpapers on Webcomic Wallpapers, a new site for free or premium wallpapers.Â Our wallpapers are free there, and available in a wide assortment of sizes.Â The wallpapers will also continue to be free here, on this site.
Item: Iâ€™ve been listening to Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and sometimes Young for several days.Â This music is intensely earnest and beautiful, and it reminds me that I was born in the wrong time period.Â I would have loved to have been part of that scene.
Item: I just watched â€œBlow,â€ starring Johnny Depp and other great actors such as Paul Reubens.Â While I was struck by the similarities to the movie â€œLord of War,â€ I was not as similarly affected by â€œBlow.â€Â It was a good movie, and Iâ€™m glad I saw it, if nothing else for the kick-ass soundtrack.Â Deppâ€™s acting was, as usually, A++ material.Â As actors go, Iâ€™m convinced heâ€™s magic.
Item: As you might remember from last weekâ€™s blog entries, this past weekend Benita and I attended the Indiana Horror Writers Retreat in Converse Indiana at the historic Woodcarverâ€™s building.Â In some ways, it did not work out the way we expected; in other ways, it was a truly eye-opening experience.Â There was a paranormal investigation being held in concert with the retreat, and three different ghost hunting groups and one wizard.Â (Iâ€™m not being facetiousâ€”this wizard is the real deal).Â Benita and I are both former ghost-experiencers, but the things we saw this weekend where still outstanding.
