Two days in a row. Hoowah!

AG Vol.3 #2 won't be ready until noon on Friday, which means we'll simply be on time instead of early (looking back to four months ago, it really did make sense to have this issue come out on Dec. 2nd instead of the 1st and I'm glad I wrote it up that way on our production schedule). It also means I'll have a pretty busy weekend, starting when I pick up the mag tomorrow, going into having The Eames Era and Rotary Downs shows tomorrow night, working Saturday then going to Baton Rouge to start our BR distribution, dinner with a friend of Michelle's Saturday night, then perhaps going back to Baton Rouge for the Saints game on Sunday.

Next week: A New York trip for my birthday that Michelle surprised me with. We leave on Thursday afternoon and come back Sunday afternoon (my actual birthday).

The following week: A trip to Austin to do an interview for the STAPLE! DVD. I'll fly out on Friday the 16th and come back Monday the 19th, just in time to get head-deep in the Jan. AG.

Anybody in NY or Austin that wants to get together while I'm in either city? Let me know.

The December issue of AntiGravity is at the printer. Who's on the cover, you ask? A preview:

We're loaded this month, with interviews with New Orleans' own band-with-the-best-chance-to-sign-a-major label-deal, Rotary Downs, Baton Rouge's The Eames Era and Humidity Skateshop owner Steve Fontenot. We've also got a brand new monthly column, Live New Orleans by our own Jason Songe. Also on tap is a pictorial of the Voodoo Music Experience by Rotary Downs drummer Zack Smith.

Not enough? We've got the regular array of music, comic and movie reviews, new comics and more general snarkiness.

It should be out by Friday if all goes well with the printer.

Hoo hah.
Well, it's been quite awhile since I posted anything on here, more because I was getting a bit overwhelmed with it than because there wasn't anything to post. So, things are somewhat normal for the moment and I'll go ahead and catch up on some things.

The packages of books coming in have slowed to a trickle, but I got two in the last week or so.

The first is from old buddy and fellow Arrested Development enthusiast Dereck Emilien, a New Orleanian who oh-so-deftly removed himself from the city months before Katrina and now lives in Spokane with his wife Andrea and son Daniel. He sent copies of a couple of my favorite books, including my favorite novel, A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES.

I also got a neat package from J. McNally from Chelmsford, MA with a ton of superhero fare, including Superman: Panic In The Sky, the original Robin mini-series, the "new" Fantastic Four, and more.

I'm quickly filling up a bookshelf, which will be nice when I finally get another actual bookshelf.
