Occasionally, I come across some really great things that might interest you all. Normally I post them to various loops but this time thought I would share them with you here at my blog instead of my normal diatribe. LOL!
Hooks That Will Never Work
Okay, we all know one of my recent articles was about having great hooks. How about the contest here http://www.bulwer-lytton.com/ which caters to those hooks that are awful. Some of these had me rolling in my chair they are so funny.
Tron Before Tron
Apparently, the man who went on to direct the blockbuster decided it needed some animation to sell the story line. Not bad for the mid-eighties if you ask me. Go see for yourself:
The True Extent
This just makes me so sad and sick to my stomach but it’s the truth of living with technology. Some things have just got to stop. See the video at:

Finally, I was mentioned elsewhere for one of my blogs this week. I was really amazed that the people at Whipped Cream tweeted about me. I must have done something good. Sorry this was so short as well as being full of things from all over the web. Must have been the ten thousand, yes that’s right 10,000 plus actually, word day I had on Wednesday. I just had to finish the story I was working on because the characters just wouldn’t shut up! But it also wiped me out! LOL!
See ya tomorrow!
