I’ve added a new link to the Smashwords site over on the right there, but it doesn’t look too exciting. The current list of links are the ones that came with the WordPress theme and I’ll be changing them as I create and find more pages to link to. I’m very pleased with Smashwords so far — it looks like I’ve already sold 20-30 books or so in a week or so. If that keeps up this whole project may end up paying for itself 🙂
I think that in addition to other gaming stuff I’ll be including writeups of my Zeitgeist campaign, though I will have to spoiler-proof it in the unlikely event that someone else playing Zeitgeist might want to read it. More to come soon.
Dale texted me last night crowing with delight that Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina primary last night. Why delight, you ask? Aren’t you two a couple of America-hatin, terrist-luvin librul soshilists? Well, yeah, but we are taking special interest in watching what a trainwreck the Republican primary process is becoming… And we’re also delighted that Republicans will have to choose between a guy named “Newt” (named after a slippery amphibian that secretes skin toxin) and “Willard Mittens” (named after the guy who founded the Mariott chain of hotels and things you wear on your hands in the winter).
I likewise enjoy observing the naked hypocrisy of the people who insisted that Clinton was unfit for office because he got a hummer in the Oval Office, now voting for a guy who has been twice divorced, had numerous affairs, divorced his wife while she lay in her hospital bed and demanded an “open marriage” while making lofty assertions about how important it was for public officials to be moral and display good American family values.
And that they hate and despise a man who rose from poverty to become president, is a faithful church-going Christian and has been faithful to his wife for decades… Hm. Makes ya think, dunnit? When push comes to shove, no matter how much they scream about “Christian values”, right wing voters really don’t much care whether the candidate is a good Christian or not — their primary concern is that he ain’t no socalist librul. And that he’ll keep his gubmint hands offa their social security.
Anyway, Dale texted me about Newt’s glorious victory and I texted back, “I guess the Mittens are coming off now, huh?” Yeah, it was a cheap shot, and I’m ashamed. After all, Republicans and Tea Partiers NEVER take cheap shots at Obama, do they?
Okay, sorry about the political rant. Like I said, it’s my blog and I can say whatever I want. Nyah, nyah, nyah…
