4/2/06 ~ Bee-Bop

It's been awhile since I've posted anything. This last week I've been getting ready for this week -- my Emily Edison promotional push on the Internet (and it does feel like pushing). Brock and I have an interview with Comic Foundry going up on Monday, our exclusive preview with The Pulse on Thursday, and (hopefully) our site and forum on Viper Comics should be coming soon. I'm posting on the various message boards and touching base with a lot of the indie-friendly retailers I know via e-mail. After April 15th, I'll give it a rest (don't want to over sell it) until Dallas Comic Con and Free Comic Book Day.

Yesterday, Kennedy and I participated in the Comics Jam War. As you might imagine, we weren't doing it as part of the competition. Just took Kennedy to Lone Star, got some bristol board and crayons, and had fun. Later that evening, I came back; did some sloppy doodles for an hour, and turned it in so we could be "official". Our end product? The Little Green Bee-Bop Comic Shop Swing. Oh, and it's l-o-v-e-l-y.

Speaking of lovely, the Valhalla Kittens. I don't know what to make of the band yet, but I have this song stuck in my head (click here). Kinda catchy. And on MySpace, Allison Weiss is a spiffy singer/songwriter, definite rock star in the making. She's the heir to Kay Hanley and Letters to Cleo. Fun and sentimental, cool.
