An Alsatian’s not always a dog

Another Oppenheim ebook, The Kingdom of the Blind .

"I should have behaved just like any other stupidly and properly brought-up young woman–waited and hoped and made an idiot of myself whenever you were around, and in the end, I suppose, been disappointed."

There’s the windup! And here’s the pitch!

He’s a jaded bohemian gangster with a robot buddy named Sparky. She’s a cosmopolitan out-of-work advertising executive trying to make a difference in a man’s world. They fight crime!

He’s a benighted flyboy shaman living undercover at Ringling Bros. Circus. She’s a scantily clad wisecracking single mother in the witness protection scheme. They fight crime!

He’s a time-tossed albino senator on a mission from God. She’s a wealthy streetsmart detective on the trail of a serial killer. They fight crime!

They fight crime!

The Unfact™ of the Month

The Unfact™ is, to the best of our knowledge, completely false and unsupportable. We are not responsible for any consequences that are bound to occur if you are silly enough to believe it.

Junk mail got its name because before the first intercontinental railroad it was cheaper to have patent medicine circulars printed in China and shipped to California to fill unsuspecting mailboxes. The circulars were not actually shipped by junks but “junk” was as a metonym.

Hulu and horribleness

Hulu may help me give up television. It’s an ad supported, video on demand site that doesn’t need any software beyond a web browser. It host clips, TV series, and feature films. Hulu’s got the entire run of Irwin Allen’s Land of the Giants and The Time Tunnel. How cool is that?

It’s also the only place to watch Joss Whedon’s (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse) latest effort, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, at no charge. It’s a deconstructionist comic-book musical. Go watch it now.

"Is that the new catchphrase?"
