BE THE FIRST ON YOUR BLOCK
Flektor quietly beta-launched yesterday. I made this poll in 45 seconds, free. (Right now, it takes longer than that to load, so be patient – something about the beta, I think.) I made this postcard . . . and if I were 16 instead of 96 (which is another story for another day), I would have made videos and photo albums and my very own chat room (oh, look – I did).
Basically, each such element is a called a flek and can be sent to your blog or your MySpace page or your eBay account – lots of places – or just emailed to a friend. You are the ‘direktor.’ Chek it out.
BUY THIS BOOK, OR I’LL SHOOT YOUR DOG
A non-credible threat, to be sure, when you see what the book is – it’s my pal Dan Mathews’ wonderfully funny, just published Committed: A Rabble-Rouser’s Memoir, the story of his fight to prevent cruelty to animals.
‘Like David Sedaris but with a mission,’ blurbs Lily Tomlin.
‘Funny, frank, and daring,’ blurbs Bill Maher.
‘You’ll be laugh-crying so hard that you won’t be able to read through your tears!’ writes one of the early reader raves on Amazon.
I know: you don’t waste money on hardcover books. (Good!) But don’t think of this as a $20 book, think of it as a $20 vote to hoist it high on the bestseller list so people catch on and start treating animals more humanely. Or I’ll shoot your dog.
