On a slightly different topic, I received my copies of Ghost House in the mail yesterday. Ghost House is a Graphic Novel project I did last year for Rubicon Books' (award winning) BOLDPRINT Series. BOLDPRINT Graphic Novels are leveled using an extensive list of criteria, allowing teachers to address each individual's reading abilities. Ghost House was written by Jayn Arnold and Glen Downey and illustrated by Scott Lincoln and is aimed at 4th grade readers. The synopsis is as follows: Charlie O’Dell is not afraid of anything. He is especially not afraid of ghosts, since they don’t exist. To prove his point, Charlie signs up for his favorite reality show, Ghost House. On the show, Charlie will lead the other participants to victory without getting scared ... or so he thinks. The art director, Brandon Koepke, had this to say: Of projects I've overseen, Ghost House is one of my favorites. It has a very consistent look and the expression and drawing is very good. Scott's style is reminiscent of some of the most successful newspaper style comics. It got good reactions all along the board.

Here's a video I enjoy watching on YouTube from "TruthForums". I think I like it because it all sounds very feasable, there are plenty of great illustrations, photos, graphs, etc and he cuts right to the chase as far as the "facts" and science are concerned.
For all of those out there who have been thinking they need to change their desktop wallpaper, you're in luck! I managed to upload the very same wallpaper I put on my computer featuring Ralf the Destroyer on Webcomic Wallpapers.com. Best of all it's free! Yes, even though the purpose of that site is to raise support for hungry cartoonists (honestly, how much soup can one person eat?) I chose to make this first offering a freebie for you guys because I appreciate your readership. It comes formatted in several sizes and no strings attached, so go ahead and download a copy for yourself!
Shop other personalized gifts from Zazzle. Well I just opened a Zazzle store to see what mischief I could get into. At the time of this post I have some T-shirt designs and a magnet, I'll be adding a bit more (shortly) as well as adding a store page to this site in the near future. I think the designs came out nicely, hopefully some of you will think so too! Thanks for your viewership and support.
If you're like me... (which is unsettling to think about) but if you are like me, then the lack of rocket packs, flying cars and moon condos has left you a bit cynical about many supposed "advancements" in technology. To this end I am always in search of some amazing gadget or theory that may just yet reinvigorate some of my retro-futurist hopes. Today I ran across this little gem via Science Daily. Now I know this isn't true anti-gravity, BUT I do think it's a pretty cool next step (provided they are not pulling our leg. The idea is to use magnetic current flowing through a field of plasma to create swirling vertices of air to generate lift, but the big deal is that there are no moving parts, just solid state electronics. I would like to know what happens with this, the article came out in 2008. I'm just sayin'...
