First of all, I want to bring to your attention a project. It’s called Quake: The Film and its creator believes so strongly in it, she made a video while wearing a fake mustache. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen me mention the Kickstarter campaign behind this independent dance film. It only has 56 hours left, and they’re a couple thousand short of their goal. If you support the arts monetarily, this might be a good place to throw some cash. If you can’t, that’s awesome, too. But if you could share the link, that would ace. And if you still can’t do that, that’s okay, too. If you’ve been a citizen of Trout Nation long enough, you know I’m kind of a sucker for independent projects that seem intriguingly unusual.
Second, remember that post about Jennifer Lawrence? Well, it got all kinds of virally, and I got picked up by the Huffington Post. You can see the story here.
If you’re not on Twitter, you missed something… I don’t want to say it’s magical or basically the greatest twitter story of all time or whatever, but that’s what it is.
Last night, I got so frustrated by some really shitty comment someone left on the original JLaw post (comments there are closed for everyone’s mental health), and I began to fantasize about running away from blogging forever. Obviously, I’ve decided against that, otherwise I wouldn’t be there, but I thought I would go ahead and post the epic saga, but in reversed order so it doesn’t actually read like the weird backwards timeline of Twitter:
EDIT: OH MY GOD, I FORGOT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! THE FOLLOWING TWEETS SHOULD BE READ IN GANDALF’S VOICE.
So, that’s what I got. Kickstarter, HuffPo, killing a bear and absorbing its powers. Coming soon in January, more Buffy, more 50, another open promo post, The Bride cover reveal and x-rated excerpt, and more general nonsense.
