Patreon Microfiction: “Mephitis Vice.”

As I said at the time: there’s a book in “Mephitis Vice,” but somebody else can write it.  Somebody else who is not me, because I just don’t know if I can do the source material properly.  Basically, I’m afraid that if I’m the one who tries to write it, the book will just end up stinking.

Book of the Week: Pickman’s Gallery.

Pickman’s Gallery is a collection of Cthulhu Mythos stories centered around the HP Lovecraft short story ‘Pickman’s Model.’  Just came out, in fact.  It features a story by Moe Lane.

:steady look:

:pause:

Aw, I’m just funning you. Still, I hear that a Kindle version is coming out next week.

Reminder: I have a Patreon!

I do not, however, still have a beard.  It was a relic of the Time Before, and has since been shorn. But the creative writing proceeds apace.  Check me out here.

I’m probably going to be revising the milestones a bit over the next few weeks or so. Not the ones that I’ve already achieved; the future ones.  So, hey, tell your friends and whatnot.

Ten years at RedState. Wow.

Since streiff is telling his story…  huh.  I don’t know if I really have any.  As near as I can remember, I more or less segued smoothly over from Tacitus to RedState; I commented, then diaried, then got front-page privileges at the former site, and then started doing the same over at RedState.  I do remember getting moderating privileges, though.  Mostly because the trolls all hid for a day and a half after I started chortling in glee, and I think that I ended up having to ban Neil Stevens.

It’s been a fun decade. At least, on the site.  The political situation has had its ups and downs, to put it mildly.  But I work with a bunch of great people, get bemused access to sitting legislators on the federal level, and every so often I get to be a troll* for the side of Good. Not bad for a kid from Jersey.

*I am so totally a troll.  The worst kind of troll, in fact: one with a badge.

SECRET ROMNEY CHEAT SHEET REVEALED! MUST CREDIT MOE LANE!

I will admit, when I first saw this superficially insipidly stupid report ‘accusing’ Mitt Romney of being able to fit everything he needed to gut Barack Obama like a fish in Wednesday’s debate on a single sheet of paper (a so-called “cheat sheet”), my first thought was Wow.  That’s incredibly insulting… to Barack Obama; surely you’d need at least an eight-page chapbook.  But, once I saw this… well. Guess it maybe wasn’t a handkerchief* after all?

I’m convinced; how about you?

Moe Lane (crosspost)

PS: I’ve asked the Romney campaign for comment; I’ll let you know what they say in response.

*Which, by the way, even Reuters admitted was in the video.  Dear God but these people don’t like to admit that they got hornswoggled by Obama, huh?

Scenes from my “Why lie? I just want an Xbox” pledge drive.

I always appreciate it when people demonstrate how infuriated I make them.

That’s from this post, where I quoted the following:

The president then ha[d] more trouble dialing. When the call didn’t go through, he blamed Mr. Nicholson for having an insufficient cell phone plan.

So nice to see that I have such an impact on other people’s lives, isn’t it?  Here’s the donation button, again:





Hrm. Maybe I should put up one of those thermometer graphics.

Alas, I am *not* writing for the Washington Post now.

Let me just put that rumor to bed.

Imagine my surprise when British news magazine The Week announced that I was writing for the WaPo:

Who they are referring to is actually the Washington Post’s Charles Lane, who indeed is not particularly buying the ‘distraught over his foreclosure’ defense being made on Faisal Shahzad’s behalf.  But if it makes The Week feel any better, I was as skeptical about this particular defense as Charles was…

Hey, I made the New York Times. Sorta. Kinda. Not really.

Didn’t mention me by name, didn’t get my actual status on RedState quite right,* didn’t link to the original piece (or, indeed, to the the site itself), and for all I know it’s website-only** – but my wife seems to think that getting quoted still counts.  Even if it was sort of out of context.

Yeah, I know: overly fussy of me.  Particularly since a couple of people are probably grinding their teeth right now over the Old Grey Lady referring to RedState as ‘popular.’

*They called me a ‘commentator’ instead of a ‘site moderator’ – or, as it says on my business cards, ‘Chief Protocol Officer.’  Although, honestly?  The correct title would probably be more like this.

**It’s rude to go through a paper at the store and see if an article made the print section.  As for buying a New York Times… well, what would I do with one, once I had it?  I don’t own a canary.
