well, first off, i can't tell you how thrilled i am that so many people logged in about scary movies and scary stories and all of that scary stuff. many people tell me that they read the blog but that they never comment (mostly 'cause you hafta sign up to comment, an inconvenience we're working on here at perhapanauts central tech support...) for those of you who logged on and logged in, thank you so much. it's really nice to see you and nice to get the feel of our little community here. again, i think we'll get a better sense of it in a month or so when we change some things up, perhapanautically.
but while we're on the subject of our little perhapanauts neighborhood, i'd like to take a moment to showcase...well, maybe not showcase...how about highlight...a couple of OTHER talented riches--besides my pal, rich case, who i posted about a couple of weeks ago--who read the blog and log in periodically.
first is rich woodall, who signs in as...rich woodall...ummm...
i met rich a few years ago at a convention up in nashua, new hampshire--or wait, was it the boston show the year before...? anyway, rich and his buddy, matt talbot, were doing a cool black and white book called JOHNNY RAYGUN for the small ralph-run company of jetpack comics. craig had known them both and done a cover for them and gave me a few of their books. which i loved. when i met them they were nice enough to give me the entire run (search 'em out--they are really lots of fun!!) and also kind enough to do an awesome pin-up for us in our first perhapanauts trade, first blood!
since then, we've stayed in touch and rich has been nice enough to keep me in the loop with all his artistic ventures, most recently with some really cool pulp illustrations, which you too can check out at:
but here's a couple to whet your appetite
the other rich, rich faber, i've know now for about 12 years. while an inker in this crazy comics biz (rich claims he's quit the crazy comics biz forever and i can't blame him!), we were teamed up on a marvel one-shot called "bug!". writers and inkers don't usually have much to talk with each other about, don't really even have any need to contact one another, but rich and i did and we did and we've been good friends ever since. also, we share a birthday--a date i didn't really want made public, but if you check a few posts back, there's rich just blabbin' it out to everyone...* anyway, rich is now an artist, a teacher, and a dad--not necessarily in that order--and you can see his stuff at:
but again, here's a sample...
so those are our other pals rich.
that's all i really have to say for now.
it's been raining here a lot this week and it's time for me to go. but first here are a few
random pictures of the week
here are your

2. name the six pythons.
3. what is the only fruit or vegatable never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh?
4. what do the j. and the two r.'s stand for in tolkien's name?
5. name six or more things you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter "s".

* heh. i relish making rich feel guilty over the stupidest, most insignificant things.
