Freelancing the night away...

after a hiatus, i'm up again at chicagoist.com.

check out my DRM blurb here.

if you missed it or i forgot to email you, here's my wu tang blurb.

again, it's really small beans, unpaid gig, but it's a writing gig on a pretty great local website that's part of a larger-nationwide blog network.

it's something. and it's fun. no complaints.

ps - of interest to only katie, one of my sample posts that got me the chance at doing this was a show preview i wrote for the upcoming uncle earl show in a few weeks. we'll see if i can get them to actually run it when the show comes around.

pps - it got cut by my editor - and probably wisely so - but the whole Sony-going-DRM-free item is kind of a crock. rather than just download mp3's from the net, you have to go to a store (like target or wal-mart) and buy a gift card looking thing. there's a card for each of the measly 37 records that are available (or will be on jan. 15th) and on the back is a code you enter in to a website to download the record. cost is $12.99. or about $3 more than the record will cost you on iTunes, though iTunes aint DRM-free. whatever.

My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find many
of your post's to be just what I'm looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content available for you?
I wouldn't mind publishing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome web site!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
However think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
images and videos, this website could certainly be one of the
most beneficial in its niche. Awesome blog!

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
to tell someone!
