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.
Quote of the Day
Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man’s greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce.~John Kenneth Galbraith, The Age of Uncertainty
