I should probably find a better place to put random one-off stuff that isn't related to one of those other things I'm doing/not doing.
For instance this, thing that basically sprang fully formed from my head on Saturday morning, metastasized from a dream that barely had any resemblance to it at all and that I can't remember. I thought about adding in some colors or tweeking the the background hues, but that got obnoxious way fast. It already feels enough like a pfsc ripoff for me to spend too much more time with it.

I wasn't really sure what to do with this little comic I made about impotent rage. It was part of a conversation on a friend's blog about being angry at her job, but it's a closed blog, so I thought I'd put it up here since there doesn't seem to be any other place for it.
Also updated the frontpage a bit and the pages from the thing with the bird: Now with Buttons!

Cheap Solutions for a Cheap Lo Fi Website

So I tweaked the frontpage a bit. Oh, it is still painfully obvious what a hack I am at web design, but I almost wouldn't have it any other way.
Lurking over there now is a link to something only accessible from that entry point, something that further shows off how lousy I am with html, how lazy I am when it comes to cleaning images up in photoshop, and how cheap I am when it comes to paying for web hosting. I mean upwards of tens of people have visited this website over the past year, but I have yet to find the incentive to step out of the free internet hosting ghetto. Maybe some day.

Oh yeah, I also had a little bit more to say about echidnas on that other, banner free, webpage.

Micro-fiction contest over at Fantasy Magazine

For anyone who might follow this blog, this is Lane, not Wade. My story is one of the ten finalists in Fantasy Magazine's micro-fiction contest. Ten stories, ten sentences or less, based off some image. The picture I used may look familiar to anyone who clicked through to get here.

Feel free to check out all the winning stories, then vote on mine (or anyone else's, if you insist). Voting is open until June 12.

Fantasy Magazine's May Madness Micro-Fiction Contest

Well, the voting period was shortened, the contest is over, and I made Third Place.

Micro-Fiction Winners

Podcastle will be podcasting the winners. I'm looking forward to hearing someone read mine.

Because a lag this long is a little depressing...

Febuary 1st was once again Hourly Comics Day. I participated again, and once again, my entries were pretty awful overall, BUT they were better than last year, and since this blog is pretty near unviewed by anyone other than a rare visit by myself, lane, or the odd random person linking from a search for "random weird stories" I feel unthreatened enough to post a link.

What is the Best Animal?

My obsession with the echidna has taken an unnecessary turn.

Real Life Weird Stories

Just wanted to point out this contest Jeff Vandermeer is having on his blog. Those who post the best true life weird tales get a load of books written and/or edited by Jeff and his wife, who is an editor for Weird Tales Magazine.

Real Life Weird

The deadline is Sunday February 17, Midnight EST, so if you actually came across this site and still have time, might be worth a try. His books are good, especially if you're into more literary weird stuff. Of course, no one reads this blog, so my posting is a moot point anyway.

A little late (only a few months), but just wanted to post that I ended up as one of the winners. Here's the link.
