The Midnight Hour

It is the midnight hour here at the The Desk of Endless Tasks.  She has had me coding all evening.  It has been a while and it is always nice to to clean up old mistakes no one caught  or bothered to mention so I am going with no one caught them.  With a quiet afternoon, it is amazing how much work you can actually get done.

Pirate fight club is now training a few new actors.  Give us a few weeks and the next show will be even more amazing.  The bonus here is that I get to buy new stage weapons.  I have to admit that the new polycarbonate castings are amazing and a blast to play with.  There will soon be additional acting classes like voice overs, cartoons, and action acting.

In a recent filming expedition, I got to be the guest of honor in a murder mystery.  Literally, I was Mr. Body.  Let’s just say that my demise was imaginative and my last moments on the mortal realm border on abuse of a corpse, but I wasn’t quite dead yet …

Happily, Geek Tank Radio (http://www.geektankradio.com) continues to grow across the country.  Every week, our insanity spread a bit farther.  This last week, mail came in from Canada.  Good Day to our northern fans.  If you haven’t caught the show lately, dive in a give it a listen.  If nothing else, you can feel better that you are not us 🙂
