Well folks I promised the first new review of the year would go to Nathan Lowell and Owner’s share and that is indeed the plan it will be coming up next. But I’d like to first make an announcement so this makes it a double post day.
2010 is what a sports team would call a restructuring year. Which means that my head was so far up my ass paying attention to way too many things and I dropped the ball a lot. I call it life kicking me in the nards and me whining too much to do any good. Now I feel my head is mostly extracted from my ass which is a good thing because the view back there was shitty (yes groan all you want bad puns are my forte and I’m getting the worst ones out of my system now). I’m working on getting back on schedule. That means I’ll be starting up 8 Questions, and Worthy Causes again as well as working on evolving Random Pimpage here a little as well. I have a new email address setup for the blog firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any requests for a Cause to be mentioned, Media or Creator review (I don’t just do Podcasts I’ll take a look at any media I can afford to and I’ll actually review / critique creators as well) or if you have in mind a Victim.. er Subject for 8 Questions or just something you want me to pimp you can just drop me a line at email@example.com with Request <Segment Name> in the subject line and tell me who / what in the body and I’ll take it under advisement.
Warning – the stuff I review on my own I do because I love the material and that shows by the fact that anything I do on my own is usually a review in a good light. At least on something I listened to my ma when she said “If you can’t say anything nice just shut the fuck up.” (verbatim quote) BUT I’ll take a look at anything anyone wants me too but I will be honest. You ask my opinion I’ll give you my honest unvarnished opinion. And lastly I will only pimp projects that I feel are deserving of it if I don’t think it’s worthy, I will not pimp it.
In the mean time until I’m back up to speed again I’ll be mixing in some older posts brought from the vaults with newer content – The older stuff will be titled From the Vaults, newer stuff will just have a normal title.
We’ll Start the relaunch with a little something retro – And for that let’s go with one of my Favorite podcasts from last year – Starla Huchton’s The Dreamer’s Thread.
If you missed it the First time Here’s what I had to say –
The Dreamer’s Thread – is a fun fantastic journey into the world of dreams, and fantasy. It’s a fun ride, to me it’s kinda like Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur’s court had a bastard love child with The Never Ending Story and set it in the land of Dreams. (And let me mention that I find that to be a GOOD thing I like the Never Ending Story… Don’t diss Bastion…nah… AH…NAH-AH-AH – it was the sequels and the fucked up cartoon that screwed it up the original was pretty decent) It’s a dreamy (pun intended) tale of Aura a dreamer who get’s pulled into the land of dreams to save the world from the nightmare realm. I think the voices were dead on, they seemed to fell right on the characters. It was fun ride, a well put together podcast, and a fun story one that should it ever make it into print I will read to my daughter on a regular basis.
Congratulations on the podcast / story being a wonderful success (least I think it turned out that way) and on the birth of your new minion. I can’t see what else you’ve got to put out… fiction wise I mean… I don’t need to see the Minions – well unless you REALLY REALLY fell like sharing…
It is a great podcast and story, and still has a happy place on my Hard drive just in case I have the urge to give it another listen.. and I have. If you haven’t sat down and given it a listen do so, give it a couple episodes before you make up your mind (I like to give everything at least four eps) because there is a fairly decent stylistic change in the first couple episodes.
If you want to support the author for her hard work and hell of a job you can always shell out the 5 bucks for PDF or 15 for print from Amazon.
Some stories when you come back a second time lose some of the wonder, this one sucked me back in just like it did the first time.
Going a little retro pulling some things off the shelf and dusting them off while I’m working on the next stage of things here at Random Pimpage.
Greetings and hallucination my dear friends fiends, followers and stalkers.
Okay no stalkers yet but a boy can dream can’t he?!
Welcome to 2011. It’s a great new year, I feel good, the drama seems to be past for now though I think I just shot myself in the foot by drawing attention to it. But as I came to look at it last week. World bring it, go ahead get your steel toes on for the nut-kicking you’re about to deliver to me. I’m ready to come over the counter and slap the bitch out of you.
Random Pimpage is back on track.
Posts should start popping up this week.
For those of you still paying attention to the site thank you to those that forgot all about me and aren’t bothering to check back…. Fair enough but I still say thpppppppppppppppppppppppppt.
