Come watch me this weekend on the all-online Arisia SF/F convention! My schedule is here: https://www.arisia.org/Bios#EJBarnes
Also, if you’re casting about for some non-family entertainment for Boxing Day this year, I’ll be giving a Zoom reading this Saturday at 9 PM of Blaster Al Ackerman’s only known Xmas story (a Ling story not yet adapted as comics), “Ling and the Leg of Arthur Godfrey’s Leg”. A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants earlier that day. Register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/boxing-day-reading-of-blasters-ling-and-the-leg-of-arthur-godfreys-leg-tickets-132682034537
You can now download from my itch.io store the PDF of the long-out-of-print Vol.1 of Blaster Al Ackerman’s Tales of the Ling Master, the authorized adaptation of the Ling Master stories by the late Blaster Al Ackerman. https://www.drownedtownpress.com/tlm_1.html
Blaster Al Ackerman would draw marker drawings of a famous person, living or dead -- only they always had too many eyes, with the caption, “Are You Drunk?”
One of Blaster’s former coworkers in Baltimore mentioned today on F*cebook that Rudy Giuliani’s star witness in the “election fraud” hearings in Michigan, Melissa Carone, appeared to be intoxicated, and that Blaster would have had a field day with her. I promised him an “’Are You Drunk?’“ riff on her. Here is is.
I should have thought about this before going into our self-imposed lockdown. Like, if I had bought a postage meter before our self-isolation, would I have been able not only to have put postage on the package, but would the postal carrier have been able to pick it up from me? If, say, I'd left it in the mail slot in our front door?
My BF and I are in the 2nd of 14 days of self-isolation, so we can safely meet my brother (who is doing the same at his end) later this month.
So I get an order for Xmas cards via PayPal from someone I don't know, in my town. I tell them I can do contactless porch pickup and refund the shipping charge.
They say, just put it in the mail...I emailed that I won't be able to go to the PO till 12/15. I may have lost a sale.
