I am democratizing the blog today. You, dear blog visitor, get to decide on what the caption for this picture should be. Here’s the picture (be warned it is mind-numbingly cute):
Here are the captions running around in my head:
RIP Steve Jobs. I’m not an Apple fan, but there is no denying the man significantly changed the world. Here’s a quote I posted on this blog in November of 2010. I believe it was given at a Stanford commencement ceremony.
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backwards. So, you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path. And, that will make all the difference.” – Steve Jobs
If gorillas were in that TV show Glee, I’d totally watch it. In fact, I’d watch pretty much anything if it had a gorilla in it… Except Two and Half Men. That show sucks so bad not even a gorilla could save it.
If gorillas celebrated Thanksgiving they’d deep fry their turkeys in banana oil. And they would probably have some kind of banana side dish. And all their mealtime conversation would be about bananas. It would be cute at first, but half way through the the meal you’d probably excuse yourself from the table,sneak into the garage, and try to invent a time machine with whatever you could find so you could go back in time and not invite the gorilla to your Thanksgiving dinner.
This is one of the saddest videos I have seen. It really feels like America isn’t America anymore.
This video has become a bit of a viral sensation. It’s billed as a video featuring an amazing cat that takes on two alligators. But actually it’s a video featuring a bunch of people who do nothing while a cat gets within chomping distance of a couple of gators. I’m no great cat lover, but even I would have stepped in and prevented that cat from getting this close. What is wrong with these people? One guy doesn’t even seem to be fazed by the alligators. He steps within a couple of feet of them and turns his back. Yet, he can’t give the cat a hand.
Are you kidding me? Cowboys, aliens, gunslingers, spaceships! I am so there.
I’ve posted a video of Greg Pattillo doing a beat box thing with his flute before, but this is actually a video with Greg and Peter Seymour, the bass player in his band PROJECT Trio. This is really cool. You young people might even like it.
Well, for at least a day I will be doing my best to act like a distinguished speaker.

Here is my latest book next to Jonathan Maberry’s and John Ajvide Lindqvist’s latest books. This kind of thing is bound to happen with stock photos. If you’re keeping score, my book came out three months before the other two. The weird thing is I now feel obligated to read the other two books.
