check out bunk bots!

A new friend of mine has started selling the cutest plush robot toys this side of the asteroid belt. And they aren't just cute, they can be used to turn plush bolts and to fix plush machinery of any kind. Read more about bunk bots here.

Tonight, I'll be appearing briefly on LiveWire, a local radio show here in Portland that is held at the Aladdin Theater. It's always a good time -- with a live audience of hundreds there to see sketch comedy, interviews, and musicians. I'll be telling people about Mad Scientist Hall of Fame: Muwahahahaha!, which needs to be bought for mad scientists young and old in time for Christmas.

As an added bonus, I wrote one of the comedy sketches that is airing.* It involves Mexican Santa Claus and mad scientists, so hope you enjoy it. :)

* I also guest wrote a couple sketches a few months ago and it was great fun. If you remember the one about a wild panda being tattooed from space with messages of love -- that was me.

I was thinking about it, and decided to scan the covers of some of the foreign-language editions of HOW TO SURVIVE A ROBOT UPRISING. These are Chinese, Thai, and Polish -- I think? Anyway, they're all beautiful -- especially the super-sparkle-version of the homicidal cover robot.

Where's My Jetpack -- now in French

I just received five or six copies of Where's My Jetpack, only translated into French. I think it looks really nice -- they even translated "Moon Space Available" on the dirigible in the top left!

Just about every week, I meet with a group of people who are very talented, smart, and willing-to-help-those-with-less-fortunate-brains-like-myself. When we each put our special rings together, we become the BBT -- the Big Brain Trust. Our secret writer's group has now been outed by the local paper, and I guess I'm okay with that.

Read about it here!
