As some of you may know, November is National Novel Writing Month. This year, I've decided to participate. The folks at NaNoWriMo have created an excellent website for the project (my personal page is here). In short, the goal of the project is to write a novel at least 50,000 words long. You can check this link throughout the month of November to see how close I am to reaching the goal and, if necessary, provide words of encouragement and/or harassment if I fail to keep pace.

What kind of novel will it be? I have some ideas, some characters, some general scenarios sketched in my head, but all I know is that it will be a comic novel, and that it will be semi-autobiographical.

Taking the I out of TIA...

...leaves us with just T&A?

Sorry, couldn't resist. But Aeromexico just suspended its weekly flights to Hermosillo, Sonora, leaving Tucson International Airport with no international flights.

Sign of the times.

Mad Men Illustrated

OK, so I haven't even gotten close to watching Mad Men yet. I've still got a stack of unwatched BSG DVDs in my Netflix queue to finish before I will allow myself to start another TV series.

But the show looks beautiful, and so do these drawings.

The Doomsday Trigger

I just watched the veep debate. Was I the only person who, during the above discussion of nuclear weapons and triggers, who thought of this famous scene?
