We are not (un)dead…just like the post title says.
Have we been hibernating? Nope. It’s summer.
Have we been just lounging around on the couch? Nope. Not as much as we’d like anyways.
Have we been busy working on the Knights of Albion? Ummm. Kinda. Maybe. A little.
Has life gotten in the way of TPC’s goals of world domination? I think a solid ‘possibly’ is the appropriate answer here.
But, it doesn’t mean we haven’t been working. The work continues on the Team Pop Culture Podcast. We have a handful of episodes recorded, and are working out the technical issues and logistics of recording episodes together from afar.
Also, R. Smith and I (this is Shawn filling in for R.) have been focusing on separate projects this summer. And before that, I had what I can only describe as ‘editor’s block.’ It took me nearly 3 months to kick my sorry ass out of that funk. That did NOT help our productivity one bit. Yeah, I’m shouldering the blame on that one. It was all me.
I’ll let R. decide if she’ll dish on what she’s been working on this summer (besides waiting on my edits), but as for me, I’ve been toiling away behind the scenes at Escape From Jesus Island. I’ll not bore you with the details (because it’s a lot of layout design and other ‘Zzzzzz…’ worthy speak) but we’ve been working out partnerships with other creatives for things like 28mm EFJI Minis, EFJI skins for guitars, laptops and boards and more. We are also close to completing a 14-page short story for the upcoming Cthulhu Williams: Monster Hunter comic series written by Tim Stiles.
I’ve also been working on various personal projects. I’ve devoted more time and energy to my art blog Give Us Art!, reopened Savage Apparel, roughed out a story line for my own comic mini-series, and generally kept myself running around in circles. But for the right reasons. I hope.
Well damn, when I started writing this, I didn’t expect it to turn into a shameless self-promotion post. I swear. I just wanted to let the world know TPC isn’t dead. We still have 2 books published (Pop Culture Sucks! Manifesto of a Vampire & Everything Sucks! Anthology) and available in all major e-book formats and in paperback. And the Knights of Albion trilogy is too much fun not to complete! I think you’ll all really enjoy it. You know, when we finally get it finished and published.
