NaNoWriMo ideas

I need feedback, votes, opinions, what have you's. I may not listen but I need them anyway.

For NaNoWriMo , should I write about

A) A tender and heartwarming coming of age story about a teenage boy and his relationship with his grandfather. This will include copious amounts of Zombie Nazi's on Jetpacks with Rayguns. It fits in, trust me. This is, in fact, my most fleshed out idea.

B) A detective story about a murder mystery in the Arthur Freed unit at MGM during Hollywood's golden age, with a Comden and Green type as wise cracking amateur detectives. Requires too much research perhaps, but it's research I've spent much of my life doing.

3) The Folkloric Adventures of Hammerhead Lincoln, Time-Traveling Ex-President. I can't explain this one - but maybe there's a team of time traveling presidents - and they have crazy adventures. And it's based on a series of tweets from a month or two ago. Sort of a Paul Bunyon ala steampunk feel.

or Bacon. A novel about Bacon.

None of these ideas have an ending. I clearly have no idea what I am doing. Help me. Stop me. Leave me comments here or on the Facebook or on the Twitter, however you heard of this ...

"You and the night and the meme..."


My roommate and I once:

Captured a live rampaging lion using only rubber bands and a stale Twizzler

Never in my life have I:

Jumped naked out of a low flying airplane into a giant pile of very soft tofu on the White House lawn during a thunderstorm storm while reading a Life magazine from 1954 and singing the Andrews Sisters songbook and swinging liberally from a bottle half filled with sour milk and half filled with Guava nectar.

High school was:


When I’m nervous:

I know I'm still alive

My hair:

Is powerfully and intimidating

When I was 5:

I stole a Tomato.

When I turn my head left:

I see what's on the left side of me. If there is a mirror there, I can also see what's on the right side of me. This is my superpower.

I should be:

Making some stew. Mmmmm stew.

By this time next year:

I will have achieved an additional 365 days of relative failure in many of my endeavours

My favorite aunt is:

A blind one armed domino champion

I have a hard time understanding:

What role the garden slug plays in the universe

You know I like you if:

I lick you on the back of the knee. The left knee, specifically.

My ideal breakfast is:

An Avocado and Glazed Donut and Grapefruit Omelet

If you visit my home town:

Mind the feral children

If you spend the night at my house:

Mind the feral children

The animal I would like to see flying besides birds:


I shouldn’t have been:


Last night I:

Played Naked Neighbourhood Night Ninja

A better name for me would be:

Tien-Phuc McGillicuddy. Sir Von Rippenhoffen Du Bastide. Buck Fluffyliver. Lydia.

A really drunk and angry Katie Couric

Breaking down a month after I bought it

Spring: an Ode.

Spring is a'borning
the melting snow
revealing new life
and also
on the front porch
the remains
of the Halloween pumpkin
we forgot to throw away
last October

Welcome to your Friday

Which of course begs the question: What Would Wang Chung Do? I like to think they would "GO" :

I get a Wang Chung fetish on Fridays, sometimes.

Johnny Sokko

And now I'm embedding this:

Who wouldn't want a giant flying robot with Egyptian headdress?

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea - Pilot

I am embedding the pilot episode of the classic ( Yeah, sure, why not?) 60's sci-fi adventure series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea - Why am I doing this? No reason, just because I can.

I watched this in reruns as a kid, usually the later seasons which were more fantastical in nature, it became like it's Irwin Allen produced cousin Lost in Space - a silly (but fun for a kid) monster of the week show. But this first year is a bit more grounded, a cold war tinged techno thriller with sci fi overtones.

What do you want? I'm a nerd, this is what I do. Over think the set up of semi obscure 60's teevee shows. Plus: "Eleven Days To Zero" can you get a cooler title than that?

Also, I always liked Basehart and Heddison. Sue me.

What Would ROM Spaceknight Do?

Something we should all ask ourselves when the Dire Wraiths are knocking at the door. For more ROM info click on this.

Note: I got this image from Chris Sims Invincible Super Blog - He is way funnier than I am, and you should read his blog if you know what is good for you and you like the comic books. Please don't sue me.

Yup. I've just plum lost my mind.

I'll give you a wooden nickle if you can name them all.
