Since there’s a lull in the summer action blockbusters, I thought I’d take the opportunity to do a little pimping and housekeeping.
Are you following OTI in all the social media? I hear the facebooks are going to be big. If reading one big, big post a day isn’t enough overthinking for you, why don’t you keep up with our twitter feed and our Facebook page. (Yes, the page is pretty dull right now. What should we do with it?)
UPDATE: You can also subscribe on your Kindle.
Also… did you know that, like newspapers, we are a money-losing proposition? Running a website, hosting a podcast, not paying the writers anything… it adds up. If you enjoy the site, why not throw us some cash so that I can keep myself in Starbucks coffee while exploiting the writers? You could make a donation of cash money or, for the ecommercially inclined, use this link (or the one in the sidebar) when you shop at Amazon and, through the magic of affiliate marketing, simultaneously enjoy low, low prices and send whole fractions of pennies our way. In either case, we’re very grateful.
Finally, I’m gearing up for some design tweaks on the site. (Yeah, yeah, I know… I’ve been gearing up for that since the current design launched.) I’d love some input. If you’re passionate about the look of the site, why not leave your most and least favorite things about the design and user experience in the comments.
OK, that’s it. I promise not to impose on your attention with more pimping or navelgazing for a little while. (Speaking of pimping, have you seen Whorified? I liked satirizing reality shows by implicitly comparing all reality contestants to prostitutes before it was cool. Still, snappy writing and decent talent and production for a web show.) The next thing I write will probably be about Gossip Girl.
Anyhoo…. didja see that movie what had them baloons in it? Here’s your open thread.
