Markdown vs Alternatives

I don't necessarily love Markdown. Or even like Markdown. I do love "Root Down" though.   #blog

First Week With Locket Update

Posted on August 2, 2013
Filed Under socialmedia | Leave a Comment

First Week With Locket Update

I installed +Locket a week ago Thursday after hearing about it on +All About Android. I didn't have any fancy lock screen or any widgets, just HTC default so I lost nothing that way. I found it not terribly intrusive, not terribly lucrative, the ads so far not terribly in my wheelhouse. I tried to interact with one ad (Kick-Ass 2 trailer) but YouTube crapped out in the middle , which is not Locket's fault.

Summary from just over 7 days of use:

Money earned: $1.18
Affilates signed up: 0
Ads interacted: 1

At this rate, it would be early October before I'd be eligible for a cashout. I was actually thinking I'd be closer to $2 by now, but this is the difference between the turtle and the snail. I was under no illusions this would be highly lucrative. I'll probably keep going at least until I reach $10 and maybe forever.  We shall see.

The Dog Days of Podcasting

Posted on July 30, 2013

The Dog Days of Podcasting

I am participating in The Dog Days of Podcasting this year, which is a project organized by my friend +Kreg Steppe. The deal is that you podcast every day from July 30th to August 30th. That's 31 podcasts in a row, which I'm not sure I've ever done even when I was cranking in the early days. Obviously, these are not all going to be full blown affairs. My plan is for the bulk of these to be 5ish minute episodes. I am shooting for a series within the series where I will discuss my history in comic book and science fiction fandom. These will be interspersed with other episodes. It won't be orderly but with any luck, it will be daily.

The first one is posted a few minutes ago. Away we go!

Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for July 11, 2013 – “Too Much Of A Good Thing”

Posted on July 30, 2013
Filed Under audio | 2 Comments

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, July 11 2013. I once again praise Auphonic as a friction reducer for podcast production; I talk about “blockbusteritis” and how I think it harms all media from large to small, old to new, Kickstarter projects and about anything; I rail against reporting about the process rather than the facts; I talk about social media and weight loss and the 7 minute workout and how that compares to NaNoWriMo and videobloggers. “Do something that is not nothing!”

Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for June 28, 2013 – “R.I.P Tides”

Posted on July 13, 2013
Filed Under misc | 1 Comment

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, June 28 2013. I talk about an episode of New Disruptors about editorial cartoons and the death of the Steve Jobs, and this morbid phenomenon of overwhelming eulogies on social media (what I call a “R.I.P. tide”), I lament the loss of my biggest detractor and get out of here. This episode is short because I lost the first half of it.

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, June 21 2013.

Posted on June 20, 2013
Filed Under audio | Comments Off

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, May 24 2013. I discuss getting no sleep, missing my friends at Balticon, being in the middle of fiascos and having my hosting turned off, I talk about how I love comedy podcasts but I hate them using the “pioneer” terminology and shitting on their predecessors and how the world that lets them work was build by those they demean, I talk about not getting my Free Comic Book Day books that were held for me (which later I did get, this was a short-term misunderstanding, I will backtrack in audio next show). I laugh my out of the show with some spectacularly bad advice.

Posted on May 13, 2013
Filed Under audio | Comments Off

massive_large.jpg

A new episode of Pull Box Picks has been posted. On this , I review Brian Wood’s series The Massive from Dark Horse Comics. I discuss the series and how it differs from other current post-apoclyptic stories, how the small details really sell the world created and how it makes me feel to read it.

The Massive is written by Brian Wood and has had story arcs drawn by Kristian Donaldson, Garry Brown and Gary Erskine with colors by Jordie Bellaire.

Buy The Massive, Vol. 1: Black Pacific from Amazon.com.
