Five for Friday
Last week's Five for Friday at Tom Spurgeon's place was a lot of fun. The assignment was to Describe A Favorite Comic In Five Words So That It's Clear What You're Writing About, But Don't Name The Comic. Then Tom had to guess what they were.
Tom nailed it of course:
Countdown to Halloween
I'm proud to have joined the many other bloggers participating in John Rozum and Friends' Countdown to Halloween. It's not at all exclusive, you just need to start posting something Halloween-related every day between now and October 31. Tell them you're doing it in the comments to their blog and they'll add you to the list. The result is "something of a virtual neighborhood to go trick or treating in." As Rozum describes it:
Imagine a neighborhood where all of the neighbors really got into the spirit of the holiday and went all out with decorating their yards and homes and on top of that also handed out the coolest treats whenever some kid in a costume rang their doorbell. Well, you are that kid in a costume, and the participants in the countdown are the neighbors with the cool houses and candy. When you visit their blogs, you will essentially be ringing their doorbell and shouting "Trick or treat." rewarded by a solid thunk at the bottom of your plastic Halloween bucket which is their post for the day. In a way that's even better than the actual Halloween (no way! I hear you saying) you get to ring their doorbell and trick or treat every single day throughout October.Cool, huh?
Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs
This week's Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs is about what looks good in adventure comics for December. There are space pirates, dinosaurs, a talking gorilla, and a couple of shipwrecks, so it looks to be a very exciting month.
