Book stuff

It's getting closer and closer. As you can see below I have the color section totally finished (well, it'll still get a lot of massaging). The b/w section is similar, with lots of text and a zillion photos. I'm very excited about how this book is going — I really think it'll be a landmark. It's really the first time the general public has been presented with anything like this…

I'm waiting on a quote right now for the book. 8.5″x11″, 24 full sheets of 1/1, plus 4 full sheets of 4/4, plus a 4/0 for the cover (ie. 112 pages, 16 of which are full color, plus a full color cover). Add to that a DVD glued into the inside of the back cover, plus individual shrinkwrapping. Quantity: 10,000. Hope that's not getting too ambitious! (For comparison, including overrun, we printed about 750 copies of the first book).

A potential design…

I've got to get back to “real work” again soon, but here's the idea I've been playing with for a BBQ shirt. Same deal as before, $20 CDN, available only at the BBQ. If you don't come, you can't get one (unless you send a golem to get one for you).

Naturally, the rings on the front glow in the dark.

Makeup Tips For Today's Teens

Those of you in the 416/905/519/613/313/514 areas that Neksis is distributed in may have seen its recently released and greatly improved second issue… Among other things it includes a one page article by me:

It's been edited a little, but it's basically what I wrote. I can't believe they printed those pictures in a general circulation magazine!

I also bumped into an old aquantaince today that works for CORE magazine… I think they might be doing a little feature as well. I hope Phil doesn't mind, but I invited their writer to come on the 12th for the suspension party. It'll be a change from interviewing Jeanine Garofalo!

SpyBot added

Creation and deletion of entries is now being fully logged, so if you're “cheating” to get to the top of the list, the bots will see it. So please don't do it! It might seem like it sometimes, but I really don't like deleting people.

In about half an hour I'm going out to a funeral… A sort of burial at sea I guess. Actually, it's a double funeral. Well, the funeral happened three years ago or maybe two. I don't really know. We might go and try and find the gravestone as well.
