      It's damn hot.

      It's so hot, I saw one of them little orange monks burst into flames.

      Seriously, Chicago. What the fuck? I love you like the pope loves deaf boys, but you're not the city for someone who likes Spring and Fall.

      So a friend of mine from Kansas is a rollergirl, and her derby name is Dreadivere. I thought that was pretty good. I had me a think, and suggested the following monikers:

      Chokeahontas
      Maid Carrion
      Susan B. Slamthony

      You guys come up with some. These are fun.

      Okay, kids. Everyone who owns an iPhone, raise your hand.

      Good.

      Now go here.

      This is the finished app for the Paris tour I did a while back. Itineris has said that if the Paris tour sells well, they'll hire me for a bunch of audio tours in the future.

      So put two and two together and buy the damn thing already. Do I have to spell everything out for you cretins?

      Christ.

      I'd feel like a bad Interwebsian if I didn't post this. As I said to my friend Devin who showed me this, "This young Korean boy is the fuel upon which the furnaces of the internet feed."

      Hey all...remember a few journals back when I mentioned I was trying to put together a comedy podcast? I've decided to change the idea slightly, so's to promote myself more specifically to the gaming industry. I'm now thinking of doing a sketch / roundtable / sketch / game review / sketch format. Got a couple of ideas for sketches, but more than that, I need help.

      I'm looking for writers (comedy and otherwise), graphic or video artists for logos and designs, and anybody who fancies themselves an actor/pundit, and would like to be involved with either the sketches or the roundtable discussions/reviews.

      Even if you just have a funny idea for a gaming-themed sketch, throw it my way. For example, this afternoon, I'm going to try and write something about Samus Aran checking into a hotel and getting insanely complicated directions to her room.

      I know many of you are consumed with your own projects, but if you know of anyone else on the site who might be interested in such an endeavor, let 'em know I'm looking.

      There should be a site where gamers can find other gamers who are looking for apartments/roommates.

      ...he said, as he waited for someone to send him a link to a site which must surely already exist.

      As Salam Alaykum, my brothers.

      Been a ride these past few weeks, sho'nuff. Both the Paris Walk and Lind-Waldock gigs went great. If the Paris app sells well, then the company is going to do tours for more cities, with me narrating as many as I can. Meanwhile, Lind-Waldock had me do 3 tags off the bat, but there's a 30 second spot coming up at some point, the buyout for which will probably be in the $5000 range.

      No other gigs yet, but I can hardly complain - I started this process less than a year ago, and everyone I know in the industry has been surprised both by how quickly I got representation, and how soon the work started coming in. So the floodgates haven't opened yet. So what? They will. And who knows...maybe I won't even have an excuse not to make it out to RvBTO this year.

      And yet it's not all been peaches 'n cream. Got dumped by the girl I've been seeing for the past few months, because...get this...I'm too focused on my career. I think only Ben can truly understand just how funny this is. I should probably be more upset...she was a sweet girl, and though it wasn't "destined to be," the times were good, but I can't help but be tickled pink by the idea that I of all people, could be considered a careerist. That being said, when you pass up sex on three consecutive nights so you can finish up a project, what is that?

      This is the first time in my life that I've been able to realistically foresee making a very good living doing something that I love. I'm going to do everything in my power to lock it down, and I won't apologize for that. So romance isn't in the cards right now? So nu.

      But hey, she was understanding about it, and we left on good terms.

      Meanwhile, I'm trying to mitigate the effects of the constant cycle of audition/rejection by coming up with some creative projects that can make use of the fancy-schmancy recording equipment I spent a cool G on. My friend Mark and I are going to do a recording of some epic poem (we haven't decided on what), with him putting bass and drum parts to my reading.

      I also want to do some sort of comedy podcast thing, "A Prairie Home Companion" meets "The League of Gentlemen" deal...folksy recurring characters, all of whom are irrevocably twisted. One segment is going to be called "Marcelo Baharona Presents: Brass Tacks with a Weback," and features my Cuban friend Marcelo ripping on a different Latino community each week. Dude has a fucking gift. I've also got an idea for a character named "Brother Clarence," who gives a sermon each week on the life lessons that one can learn from the films of Kurt Russell. If anyone wants to contribute somehow (and that could mean anything...material, music, video, art, etc) let me know.

      Guess I'll end this tldr-worthy journal by making the promise I make every six months or so, which is that I'll try and do a better job of keeping up with everybody. We all know it's not true, but I like to think it makes you cry a little inside when I inevitably don't live up to my word.

      Love,
      Duke

      Duke, I heard through the grapevine that you've done voice over work and I was hoping you might be able to help me out here. I recorded the phone stuff for the company that I work for, and now someone contacted them about getting me to do voice over work. How does one generally handle stuff like this? Should I contact a talent agency so I can have someone represent me? Shit, I don't even know how much to charge for something like that.

      I like what I have heard of daughters. Someone turned me on to them a few weeks ago. I will check out the other bands.

      I have been highly occupied by "Irony is a dead scene", which is a Dliinger Escape Plan e.p. that features Patton on vocals. Also going back through the Sleater-Kinney catalog and trying to track down one of the greatest rap albums ever.

      Did you tell me about Goatsnake? I cannot remember all the names thrown around during our stoner/sludge/doom/gloom talks. if you haven't heard of them, this song is pretty good.

      I don't know how much lower a low end can get.

      I hadn't heard that one. Hilarious. Wonder if there were any amusing outtakes for the whisky commercials Kurosawa made... But I suppose there would be a language barrier, and he didn't seem like the kind of dude who would get belligerent toward the help.

      Best unintentional comedy ever. Future cult classic for all the wrong reasons.

      But that film is still watchable because that chick he's with is one of the hottest women I have ever seen in my 39 years on this planet.

      Smoking. Fuckin'. Hot.

      You see that Nic Cage is the new Bad Lieutenant?

      Is he gonna show his penis like Harvey Keitel? It won't matter because I'm sure the film will be 105% suck and never see it.

      If you're going for 100% make sure you go after as much as you can before you finish getting the components for the suit since you cant get back to the right side of the map once the big boss gets triggered.

      I 97% ed it because of that shit. Sucks so hard I gotta play it over now.

      Not that I'm complaining.
