It’s Monday (insert long sighhh here). Back to work and all that jazz. This week should be action-packed! I am finishing up my portion of the aforementioned Ronald Reagan biography and blasting away at my Tokyopop project. Last week, my Editor and I revised the production schedule and now I really have to crank! But that’s good! I work best under pressure. Keeps me sharp…(snap!)…On the edge…(snap!)…Where I have to be. I’ll post some sketches soon!
In other news, I’ve started season two of Lost. Dang, that show moves! I don’t know how they do it. I don’t see how anyone can stand waiting a week in between episodes (thanks, Netflix!). I may be a year behind everyone else, but I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Don’t post any spoilers here, okay?
Speaking of being behind the times, I’ve only recently gotten into the whole You Tube phenomenon. I’d looked at a couple of videos in the past, you know, when somebody’s sent me a link, or whatever. But I never really investigated it. Then, about 10 days ago, I was on Don Hudson’s Birthday Pub Crawl, and there was a whole discussion about You Tube. The bartender at one place was talking about a series of video blogs by someone called Lonelygirl15. He wasn’t sure if they were real or acted. Anyway, since hearing about it, I’ve watched Lonelygirl15’s saga, which is strangely compelling. After a couple of days, a New York Times article about Lonelygirl15 was published, about how her blog is an act--part of a promotion or something for a feature film. SO, I got to enjoy the fact that I was “in the know” about this piece of pop-culture for about 15 minutes before it was exposed to the world.
Yep, I’m on the cutting edge…
