Well, dang. I'm still alive, mostly, but unfortunately I have developed a disease called "neural bac-o-bititus" or in layman's terms "brain rot." I have been working feverishly eight days a week on developing a web site and no matter how much I want to I can't write in this blog and do that too. And I need to do the project since I am desperately in need of the bucks that it will bring in. Hopefully. Soon.

So I'm sorry for the continuing paucity of posts here. I thought I could do the programming and write here too, but the intense focus that the programming project requires does not allow me to do anything else writing-wise, or even give me time to check out your blogs. I'm surprised I was able to get that last sentence out, to tell you the truth. Gleep.

I won't make any more rash promises about when I'll post next, but it shouldn't be so very long. Please check back here once in a while if you can. I miss you all lots. And thanks for caring.

I shall return.

As perhaps you noticed, I lied in the last entry. I'm still in the bowels of an incredibly time-consuming work project a week later. No time for writing, no posts since then.

But...

I should be freed up enough to write here again by Monday, June 18th, if not earlier. Please check back then. I is really going to try to write good when I comes back.

Sorry.

Item: Ack! Ack! No, it's not a hairball, it's just that this blog got a little dusty recently. I've been trying to get a bazillion things done and I have a bazillion more things to do. I've been working on a web development project to bring in some desperately needed funds and I've been working lots on my "Other Keys" project. Between the two, it leaves about five minutes per day for blogging.

All this is to apologize for the lack of posts recently. I intend to do better. I am going back to posting at least every other day, and hopefully it will be new stuff if I can scrape together the time to write it. But I'll work on it, promise.

And by golly I'm going to catch up on all your blogs in the next two days too. I've missed you.

Item: I added a couple links to the old Hulles blog: SteamyDreamer joins the blog list and I added a literary site, The Modern Word, to the links section 'cause I like the place lots. If you enjoy reading Gabriel Garcia Márquez check out the Macondo section.

Item: I added a filmography section to the Mythos and to the sidebar. This was done with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek, but a couple people have actually asked me what Chasing Windmills episodes I was in. So there they are. It also gives me a place to store the links.

Ah, how I miss those heady days of stardom! The roar of the greasepaint, the smell of the crowd.... I guess I'll just have to settle back and write my memoirs and make up shit about how I had affairs with Angelina Jolie and Sharon Stone and Lindsay Lohan.

Item: Thank you to those who emailed me with concern about my blogging absence. I'm mostly okay, if a little grim around the edges from a lack of filthy lucre. Hence the work project.

Item: The title of this post has absolutely nothing to do with anything. I actually considered writing a blog entry around it but I decided I'd just use it for this. The phrase came to me during a recent pub visit and had nothing to do with anything then either.

Item: If anyone is interested in doing graphics or peripheral writing related to my "Other Keys" project, just shoot me an email to the address in my profile. You don't get to find out anything about it until you do, though. I'd tell you here but then I'd have to bluescreen your laptop. It's under wraps until it's a little more polished.

And my friend, collaborator and partner-in-crime Visual Snark is the bombdiggity. Still. Again. If there's any suckage about "The Other Keys" it's certainly not going to be due to her remarkable CG efforts.

It's not going to be due to me, either. I plan on blaming you.
