super duper supercut

One week ago, a motley assemblage of insanely talented rad comrades assembled at Hollow Earth Radio, to perform the 7th annual rad comrades super duper audio play.
Superhero Quantum Pax, her sidekicks and BFF's Loocy Paloochi and Jean Cluck Van Damme, join forces with Esperanto creator L.L. Zamendorf to calm Godzilla and fight 3 evil goons -- Creamsicle Crony, Barry Piroshky, and the Salad Prince--who are plotting to take over the world.
To listen to the entire play--you know you want to!--go to: tinyurl.com/superduperplay.

super duper

Some pals and I (Team Ampersand) spent a good part of January working on a script for the 7th annual Super Duper Radio Play. There was a superhero, a Belgian rooster, the founder of Esperanto, Godzilla, and a trio of goons including Russian Barry Piroshky and orange-on-the-outside-white-on-the-inside Creamsicle Crony.
I'll post a video of "the making of" pretty soon but in the meantime here's a couple of pix from the day.

surprise, mysteries!

I made a new video. This one's about a pair of novels I read recently, picked them up from the Seattle Public not quite realizing they were mysteries. Sometimes so-called "genre fiction" gets a bad rap, but as everyone around here at busysmartypants knows, I'm a huge fan of mystery/spy/thriller novels, genres be damned. Sometimes you want LeCarre, with all of his intricate plotting and subtle twists of the knife; and sometimes you want Lee Child--heavier on the action but none the less tense. Anyway, enjoy the vid and happy reading.
