Where is Mike?” I’m sure many of you are not asking.
But others may be concerned. “Where am I supposed to get my daily quota of digs at the White Album? Who can I turn to for frank, unashamed love for the Fabs’ psychedelic period? Not to mention egregious and off-topic references to Peter Cook and Peter Sellers? Some bad person is trying to make me listen to Let It Be, and I need reasons not to! Help!”
It’s like this, Beatle peedles: After a near-decade of under- and straight up un-employment, my life is suddenly bonkers. Lots of radio interviews, most nights up til all hours designing, and gently editing people 1000x better known than I am. (It’s like playing “Operation.”)
My new humor magazine The American Bystander was such a success last fall, that I went right into production on issue #2. While I can sometimes Dullblog with one hand as I work with the other, now that the Kickstarter has funded and I have to actually, y’know, make a 130pp book out of all this stuff, it’s taking all the time I can spare.
Clearly, this is perhaps the perfect time for the backend of the site to go pear-shaped. I am attempting to figure things out, but until I do, just shoot me an email when things look or act broken.
And if you want a Bystander — or a set of #1 and #2 — you can go pledge now.
And to think we knew you when. 😉
I’ve been enjoying my copy tremendously.
I’m very glad, @karen. Please spread the word.
Can we really know anyone, though? The human heart is a place of mystery.
Sounds like the best kind of busy, Mike! I look forward to the second issue.
It’s looking good, @Nancy. I keep trying to get these Under 120pp, but to no avail. Too much good stuff out there!
Michael~ When I went to the Kickstarter page and tried to play your video clip, there was no audio. (To make sure the problem wasn’t on this end, I immediately played the Ray Cathode posting with no problems whatsoever….) Seems I’m always homing in on the tech hurdles.)
That is very strange, Linda. I will look into it. Thank you.
I’m going to sign up for a paper copy of both, and tbh it’s my way of thanking you for this site. The enjoyment I’ll get from the writing itself will be a by-product. This site has already given me more education and thoughtful discussion that I’ve had pretty much anywhere else on the Internet…
