So, my daughter, Stella, made me a great card for my birthday and then proceeded to tell me that she had a great idea what to get me for my birthday. She was extremely excited, by the way. I asked what, excited myself, and for her since she was obviously so excited. She told me she wanted to take me to Target and get me a Barbie Princess movie! She loves the Barbie CGI movies (they are pretty good for young ones). So, I smiled big and let her know that I thought that was a fantastic idea. We just got back from the store...I got 2 Barbie movies. YES! I also picked up the new Bob Dylan, Modern Times cd which is absolutely phenomenal, and the new BECK cd which I am listening to as I write this. I love Beck and this one sounds like a winner so far. Stella didn't seem to care that I was getting the cds.
On a different note...I will be doing a store signing this Friday night 5-9 at Kowabunga Comics in Oconomowoc, WI if you're in the area. And if you're not, well, then you should seriously consider flying in. It's a great shop located in one of Wiscoonsin's most beautiful settings. And I'll be there. 'Nuff said!
On another different different note...The French edition of The King is due out this month overseas! Very excited about that! So if you're fluent in french check it out. Also! The 3 Geeks, Jim's Jerky will be out soon. If you missed ordering it in the Previews catalogue ask your retailer...it might not be too late. Or it is available here on the site.
One last thing for today as I plan on chillin' for the bulk of this blessed of days. As it is my birthday and this makes me feel in a generous state of mind (and the knowledge that my soul is all good and all) I will be offering a one week long deal on any orders received on the website. I'm doing a "buy one, get one free deal!" Buy any item and receive an item of equal or lesser value for FREE!! And if you buy two items you get two freebees, three items three free, and so forth and so on. Rock on, right?! This includes original art, shirts, books, whatever. Am I a cool dude, or what? I might even be inclined to throw in a free sketch if your order is a big one. Cuz i am just that cool. AND since I am that cool I am going to go ahead and extend this one week sale to ten days. So, let's say the sale goes from today, November 1st through November 11th just to be fair. Send me your orders and we'll figure it out.
Well, that's it for this blessed of days. Go pray to me at the shrines I am sure exist in your homes. I will be hitting the hardcourt tonight for the first time this year and, yes, I will be wearing my protective eyewear (reference to basketball and an eye injury I suffered a couple years back in case you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about). Word! R
