Pal Jamie

Hi friends:

If you're a friend of the one and only Jamie Tittle, aka Tigital, longtime Lexington and Louisville Luminary, please help him in a time of need. Jamie's being treated for Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Today was his last chemo treatment, apparently, and now we're all looking forward to (quoting Jamie, in his own inimitable and probably accurate vernacular) the "rebooting of his immune system."

Please visit Jamie's Caring Bridge site and sign the guest book. I think he gets a kick out of it.

Note: if you have any prob getting to his site from the above link, go here, and type in "jamestittle" and I think it'll (heh -- "tittle," "it'll" heheh) get you there.

Please send Jamie your good thoughts, your prayers, your recursive neural algorithms, your cupcakes, your (fill in the blank).

PS: here's the uncropped picture of Merrill and Jamie at our wedding that I dig. (sorry, Merrill!)

The Experts!

Pal and great comics guy Kenn Minter is finally doin' it with The Experts, which has recently been picked up for wider distribution. I'll let Kenn tell it:
This is an exciting time for myself and penciller-co-creator, Clarence Pruitt. "the Experts #1" has made it into Diamond Distribution's September issue of "Previews." So, if you have any interest in the book or would just like to lend a hand in supporting your fellow, struggling, independent comic book creators... then bug the tar out of your favorite comic book retailer and tell them that they need to check out the September issue of Previews and order as many copies of "the Experts #1" as they can. I know Clarence and I sure would appreciate it.

The Go! Team

The Go! Team

Wow, The Go! Team!

Todd and I made the trek to see modern music's best hope in Indy, and they were faaaaantastic!!

We both agreed that there seems to be a new work ethic in rock music, and it's about damned time. After all, if you want to be a big rock star, you oughtta be willing to do a little bit more than come out in a wrinkled tshirt and stare at yr. god-damned feet all night.

The kids in both Autovaughn (from Nashville) and The Go! Team seemed to understand that they were expected to get up there and give the audience 1000% of rock star guitar-flinging, bombastic outros, and spastic flailings. All hail, the rebirth of rock attitude.
