Epic Ninja News, Movie Review, and Kela Thinks I’m Famous

Special Feature and Special Request!

Kela is the sweetheart who runs Teardrops on my Books. Tuesday, she honored me by saying I was famous. Thursday, she featured me in her Thursday Tag HERE. For your amusement, I invite you to read my answers. Thanks, Kela – you rock, my friend!

I have a very special request of the Ninja Army. Not for me, for my friend Andrew. I’d previously mentioned the book he did for his students, Charter Shorts, which goes to benefit the school.
Friday is the last day for Briane's Star Wars Trivia Marathon. Andrew is in second place but can still pull out a win with some help. If you go to Briane’s blog and state that you Champion Andrew, he gets an extra 10,000 points. (And it’s been an ongoing thing this week, so if you’ve already commented on an earlier post, you can comment again on the latest one.)
Thanks to all who showed their support for Andrew! Championing is now over.

Epic Ninja News!

This is what happens when I skip posting just one day…

Candilynn Fite has started a monthly contest, Follow My Lead – and the prizes include a fellow author’s books. This month, it’s Roland Yeoman’s End of Days. Awesome idea, Candy!
Here’s the basics:
Entries must be original work of the writer.
Only one entry per contestant.
300 words or less.
The piece must follow the prompt provided, but may sway in any direction.
The contest piece should be written about the image, in some form or fashion.
The prompt should be used in the story and included in word count.
Ends June 30, 2012

Jamie at Mithril Wisdom has more fun at work than I do – they created a zombie game app that works with Google Maps. Visit his site so you too can send zombies to attack your friends where they live!

The awesome Arlee Bird at Tossing it Out is looking for people to hijack his blog! If you are interested in doing a guest post, contact Lee.

Author Bryan Thomas Schmidt lists Five Great New Epic Series for Your Summer Reads. And hey – my Cassa books are listed! Thanks, Bryan.

Michael Abayomi had some great news about his 6-part epic fantasy series, Guardians & The Lost Paradise: “The first two chapters are now on display at The Lost Paradise as part of my about-to-be-launched Indiegogo campaign to raise enough money to produce all 6 books in the series.” Good luck, Michael!

The ladies at Falling for Fiction (Cassie, Jade, Hope, Kelley, and Jenny) are hosting the Hookers & Hangers Blogfest on July 16 and 18. Go HERE to sign up!

Rick at The Writer and the White Cat announced that starting the first of July, White Cat Publications, LLC. will begin accepting submissions for their new magazine of urban poetry titled Nain Rouge a Journal of Urban Poetry, Prose and Art.

Lydia Kang is hosting an amazing giveaway – critiques, books, and Amazon gift card!

JA Bennett is hosting a two hundred followers giveaway – Amazon gift card and a critique!

Heads up! Since the next posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group falls on the USA’s Fourth of July holiday, we will be posting BOTH Tuesday and Wednesday of that week.

Movie Review


Immortals
Finally saw this on NetFlix. Glad I waited.
This movie misses the mark on every level. It’s poorly edited and constructed. Everything about it feels odd. Even the special effects. The worst part is the goofy costuming. My wife commented that in one scene, the Oracles looked like matching salt and pepper shakers. Part of the problem is this movie takes itself way too seriously. Directed by Tarsem Singh who directed The Cell and… not much else. The best thing I took away from the film was that actor Henry Cavill will make a good Superman in the remake.

Don’t forget to visit Kela You guys are awesome!

Whoa! Participating in Candy’s monthly contest? Ready to unleash some zombies? Reading for some summer reading? Feeling lucky with a contest or two? Did you lose part of your life watching Immortals? Both Brave and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter come out this weekend – seeing either of them?

Lynda R Young said...

my goodness, so much is going on in the blogging world!!

psst! You ARE famous!

Michael Abayomi said...

Thanks for the shout out, Alex. It's been a long day and a half, and I am currently suffering from some serious sleep deprivation. But I just wanted to pop in (before I hit the sack or pass out, whichever comes first) and let you know that I am truly greatly.

P.S: I haven't seen Immortals, but your review makes me kinda glad that I didn't. Might still give it a watch one lazy afternoon, but I'm not exactly holding my breath till then. And yes, Brave is going to be awesome! :D

Kela McClelland said...

I'm tired, and it's late and I should be in bed. Lol. But I just wanted to say, thank you again for doing the interview. And yes, you are famous. :D

Have an awesome weekend :D

T. Drecker said...

Whew! I'm going to have to read through this a couple times to get it all.
Congrats on being famous - how cool is that!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Lynda, no I'm not... Just a Ninja!

Michael, you're welcome, and don't hold your breath or you will pass out.

Kela, thank YOU.

T Drecker - sorry! I didn't post Wednesday and the news snowballed.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

I actually liked Immortals. It's no 300, but it had stunning visuals and it was an above average sand and sandals epic. The Gods costumes were funny though.

Old Kitty said...

My head is dizzy with all these happenings in blogworld!!! Off I go to have a lie down now! Yay! Take care
x

Mina Burrows said...

Great contests. Thx.

I'm taking my kids to see Brave this weekend. I'm so excited too! I'm bummed some of the movie reviews about Abe Lincoln/Vamp Slayer are bad. Like 2 something stars. It's disappointing. Oh well! Have a great weekend Alex. :)

KarenG said...

Teardrops on my Books-- what a very cool name, will drop by and see the famous Alex.

tfwalsh said...

So many things to check out... glad you're on top of it:)

Natalie Aguirre said...

Thanks for sharing all the good news. It's great to end the week with lots of good news.

Jemi Fraser said...

All kinds of goodies! Kela is indeed a sweetheart - off I go! :)

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

One more click for Andrew! Not a problem!

A.J. Walker said...

I tried out the Jamie's app. It's hilarious and works on European addresses too. Try it out!

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Thanks for getting us caught up!

Yeah, Immortals isn't sounding like such a great movie...

Louise Bates said...

Wow, so much happening!

I want to see Brave so badly - friends from Nova Scotia and Florida and I even tried to coordinate our schedules so we could all be in the same place at the same time and watch it together. Alas, it didn't work. I'd still love to see it, if I can convince the husband to stay home with the littles AND find someone around here to go watch it with me. Movies are never as much fun alone!

Annalisa Crawford said...

Lol, I'm off to send zombies round to my friends houses.

Great interview, by the way, Alex.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I've already championed Andrew.

Thanks for giving us an extra day for the IWSG post.

Juliana Haygert said...

Lots of events and amazing contests! Thanks for spreading the word about them, Alex!

Kyra Lennon said...

You ARE famous! :D

Sheesh, I had no idea there was so much happening at the moment, thanks for sharing the details!

Candilynn Fite said...

Thanks for the shout out, Alex!! You must be exhausted just from doing your post! So much to announce. I hope you have an amazing weekend. :)) I'm hoping to go see A.L. Vampire Hunter.

LynnRush said...

Wow!!! Immortals, huh? I hadn't watched that yet. Bummer it missed the mark. :(

Wow. There's a lot going on. Thanks for your posts, Alex !!!

Cate Masters said...

Wow, that's a lot of ninja news! Very cool.
Disappointing about the Immortals. It had potential.
Off to blog hop!

Brinda said...

Wow. Those are some gret links. I'd better get busy checking them out!

The Happy Whisk said...

Thanks for all the news and have a groovy weekend :-)

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

To say I learn so much from you is an understatement, Alex. Thanks for all the info, especially on blogger-authors' successes. It's overwhelming in a happy way.

xoRobyn

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

George, especially the hats.

Kitty, curl up with Charlie and you'll feel better.

Mina, I was hoping for better reviews as well.

Cathy, you rock!

AJ, I still have to try it!

Louise, I hope you get to see it!

Kyra, I'm sure I missed a few things...

Candy, you are welcome!

Carol Kilgore said...

Oh, man, lots of stuff! Hope you enjoyed your day off :)

Happy Weekend!

A Daft Scots Lass said...

YOU ARE FAMOUS, sweetie.

Misha Gericke said...

Can't wait until Brave is out in South Africa.

Checking out the competitions now and thinking about the contest. Shouldn't be, though. I've put myself on a writing fast. :-)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Wow! There is so much going on in the blogging world! I'll hop around to check it out this morning, and vote for Andrwew. I won't get to see Brave this weekend, but hopefully I will soon.

L.G.Smith said...

I saw the Immortals at the theater and it was a disappointment. I liked the battle with the Titans, but that was about it.

Have a great weekend.

Teresa Coltrin@Journaling Woman said...

I felt like you were talking fast and then took a breath. Lots of good things going on.

You are famous especially to us your readers and blogger buds.

I'll go over to Andrew's to vote, now.

[Retro-Zombie] said...

Many cool things going on this weekend... here in the blog world and that thing they call life... Movies... interested in Brave, Abe and Seek a Friend... weird that this is a long time for a triple... I mostly likely staying home and listening to scores finish my book.

Oh Happy Day!
Jeremy [Retro-Zombie]
Oh No, Let's Go Retro

Maurice Mitchell said...

Championed Andrew, but Briane added comment moderating so I'm not sure if it went through. Some great Ninja news especially Michael. He's got some serious ninja writing and music skills.

Laura Eno said...

You have awesome ninja skills, Alex. I championed Andrew.
And as part of your army, we already knew you were famous!

Em-Musing said...

Can I borrow some of your time? I don't know how you do an extensive blog, then comment on everyone else in the world. You are not only famous, but amazing!

Suze said...

I'm trying to decide, now, if I'll watch Cavill's 'Superman,' when it comes out, or if I'll wait until I read your review. :)

Joshua said...

I championed Andrew, but man is that comment thread getting overly-dramatic. Due to one person.

Tonja said...

That was a lot of news.

Budd said...

yeah, I didn't really thing the Immortals made much sense. I thought it was pretty though, but that is the only nice thing I can say about it.

Tasha Seegmiller said...

So I was going to champion Andrew and then I saw Michael there and I can't split my vote but I know both of them. I think this is called inner turmoil.

Morgan said...

The other day on fb, I told Cassie Mae that I think your next book needs to be a romance novel. And Cass can be the heroine, entitled Cassalove ;) Hahaha... okay... lame, I know :P

Off to visit that fun interview of yours! :D

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thank you, Lass!

LG, yeah, I just expect a lot more.

Thank you, Teresa.

Maurice, it went through!

Laura and Em, thank!

Suze, if you trust my judgement...

Joshua, yeah, it is. Thanks though!

Budd, one of the few things.

Tasha, that's all right.

Morgan, it would be funny though.

Miss Jack Lewis Baillot said...

I've heard of the Immortals. I think, is it based after a book?

Won't be seeing Brave yet, I'm waiting for some reviews on it as I'm not sure what to think of it yet. I'm really hoping it is good because it looks like it might have a lot of promise.

Rusty Webb said...

I gave Andrew all I've got. It hurt to give away all my points. I felt like I still had a chance. Now I know what politicians feel like when they bow out of a race.

Allison said...

Wow, off to check out all those links. Thanks for staying on top of all this news!

Allison (Geek Banter)

Stephen Tremp said...

That's a lot of links, but I'll visit them all as these are amazing bloggers and people.

And we will see Brave today. Hopeits a winner. Looks like it could be a cookie cutter story or one that is a Frankenstein, a movie pieced together from other movies.

Ella said...

Visited a few... Wow, quite a post today! Yes, I am ready to unleash some Zombies...wonder if they be interested in the droid that attacked my AC unit!

Happy Friday!

SA Larsenッ said...

I already knew you were famous. Yay for Kela! ;D

I'm all over that book Charter Shorts.

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

I also didn't care for Immortals, but my friend Tomeka loved it. I agree with everything you say here. It just wasn't 300.

Leovi said...

I have not seen the Immortals, but if I lose part of my life ...

Emily R. King said...

Thanks for the updates around the blogosphere. The generosity and talent floating around out there never ceases to amaze me.

Cassie Mae said...

Wow! Look at all this stuff! thanks for the shout out, Alex!

And I only watched immortals for one reason.

Luke Evans.

Commence drool...

Nick Wilford said...

Look what happens when you miss a day! Loads of great stuff happening. I did already sign up for the FFF blogfest, at least. Looking forward to that one!

Flash fiction contests always tempt me. I'll try to get in an entry for Follow My Lead before the 30th.

cleemckenzie said...

I can't keep up with all these contests. Is everyone on the planet having one? Thanks for warning against the Immortals. One less movie to see.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Miss Jack, the reviews say it's not one of the better Pixar films, but most are still positive.

Rusty you could keep one point. Then if everyone blows it, you'd win with one point.

Stephen, they say it's not original but still enjoyable.

Ella, not now! It's so HUMID right now...

Michael, it just really fell short.

Cassie, you're welcome. And you're drooling on my blog...

Lee, just take it right off your list...

Nancy Thompson said...

My goodness, there's so much stuff here, I don't know where to start! Championed Andrew for the third time. Hope he wins. With you on his side, how could he not?! And hey, I thought Lydia was giving away a car! (Inside FB joke.) Gotta go check everything else out. I'm tired already!

Carrie Butler said...

Whew! So much going on!

I read your interview, championed Andrew, and now I'm ready to work my way through the links. :D Have a great weekend, Alex!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I voted for Andrew. I got bad vibes from the previews from IMMORTALS and never tried. All the reviews seem negative for poor Abe, but I will watch for myself ... since I did enjoy the previews.

Thank you so much for shouting out Candilynn's new monthly contest. She's one special lady. Uh, oh, her husband just cracked his knuckles! Alice, I need you!

Matthew MacNish said...

How do you stay on top of it all? I'm hoping to finally see Prometheus tomorrow. I know, I know.

Julie Dao said...

I'm going over to read your answers! And look at all of this ninja news. The list keeps growing and growing - which is a great thing! Have a good weekend, Alex!

Rachna Chhabria said...

Alex, my superhero Ninja is really famous. We all knew it, it took him time to realize that. Thanks for shouting out about the new monthly contest. Sounds cool.

Ciara said...

The is lots going on. I'll have to catch up when I get back in town.

Johanna Garth said...

Voted for Andrew and honestly Alex, if you're not a famous blogger than I don't know who is!

Rachna Chhabria said...

Voted for Andrew. Btw..I was just talking about you to the CEO of a company in India, which is creating computer games.

Siv Maria said...

Can not imagine how you keep up Alex, then again they don't call you Capt. Ninja for nothing! Off to check out Andrew and make him my champion. Ninja army rocks! Looking forward to Lincoln: Vampire Slayer, have not seen Immortals and probably won't now. Have no time for any contests...SO much to do and so little time! Got a special visitor coming in less than 2 weeks :D

Julia King said...

Wow! Lots of giveaways. There must be love in the air. haha

"Matching salt and pepper shakers." Hilarious. Your wife got a thousand cool points for that.

Thanks for the news. :D

Jennifer Hillier said...

Psst... you ARE famous!

I actually got dragged to watch The Immortals in the theater. Waste. Of. Money. I got to pick the next FIVE movies after that - that's how bad it was!

Arlee Bird said...

Thanks for the mention. The dates filling up for my Hijack This Blog! promotion. Looks like I won't have to unleash any of my own blog wackiness unless someone doesn't show up for their appointment.

The Zombie animation that Jamie Gibbs presented is very cool. Thank goodness the zombies stayed outside the wall of my community and didn't get to my house. Amazing how they do those things.

LD Masterson said...

Whew, so much going on.

I hopped over and championed Andrew.

RaShelle Workman said...

I'll be sure to check his blog.

Immortals was...weird. The costuming for the Gods - awful, but I Red Box'ed it... so I went into it knowing it'd be bad, and didn't mind it too much.

For some reason Snow White and the Huntsman bothered me more. Probably because I excepted it to be awesome, and it didn't get there for me. The main reason: I really, really wanted more of a connection between Snow, and the Huntsman. *sigh* Oh well.

Cherie Reich said...

But you are famous. :D

I would like to see Brave and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but I think I'll be catching up on editing and writing this weekend instead.

mooderino said...

I don't really like movies that are entirely shot on green screen. I don't think the technology is good enough yet, it looks too fake.

Michael Malone said...

How do you keep on top of all this stuff, Alex? Impressive.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nancy, thanks, and if she was giving away a car I'd keep that contest to myself!

Thanks, Carrie.

Roland, very happy to tout her contest, especially knowing the prize.

Matthew, we need to take you to the movies!

Johanna, thanks.

Rachna, you're welcome - and really????

Siv, your son, right?

Julie, I'll tell her.

Jennifer, thanks. And it was almost the next ten movies bad.

Lee, you're welcome.

Thanks, LD!

RaShelle, the relationship part was lacking.

Andrew Leon said...

I just rented Immortals a few weeks ago. Horrible. The whole thing at the end was just dumb.

Thanks for all the support! You and your army have been awesome! And thanks for mentioning the book again. That's awesome, too. Even more awesome, actually. I'd really love for some people to check out what those kids can do.

Charles Gramlich said...

Will do.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

My son took me to see Immortals at the theater for my birthday. Except for spending the time with him, the movie was a disappointing.

Gossip_Grl said...

Champion Andrew- Check. and learned that I am apparently a minion now- huh imagine that. I said it was because of the cookies and Kool Aid. :) Immortal, haven't watched. Hubby may have though while I was catching a chick flick. :) I am excited for Madea's new movie next Friday.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Andrew, you're welcome, and it sounds like several people here were interested in the book!

Thanks, Charles.

Susan, hope he made up for it with dinner.

Gossip, you're a cool Ninja minion though!

Christine Rains said...

I championed Andrew! :) I'd like to see both those movies coming out this weekend, but nothing is on the agenda for me.

Rachel Morgan said...

Immortals. Yeah, I think I watched this movie. I ... can't remember it! It obviously made a big impression on me!

Abby Minard said...

Lots of stuff going on- gotta get my butt back in gear with blogging! And guess what Alex, you are totally famous!

Clare said...

As always, your Ninja News is very informative, and now I've got some more contests etc. to look into.

Thanks for sharing.

The Angry Lurker said...

Immortals wasn't that bad, some of the best scene chewing I've ever seen, especially Rourke!

Donna K. Weaver said...

ROFL Matching salt and pepper shakers? Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing Brave.

Jo said...

Just to say I was here.

Elana Johnson said...

I don't know how you keep up with everything. My head is swimming with all the information in this post. But I've got the insecure writer's group thing on my calendar for next month!

M Pax said...

Yeah, Immortals was terrible. Not even Henry Cavill saved it. Siigh.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

All behind with commenting today.
Such alot to get through, many links to keep me occupied over the week-end. and as always the films sound great.

Enjoy your week-end.aso thanks for your comment.
Yvonne.

DL Hammons said...

Kela is a sweetheart, and I loved her interview with you! :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Rachel, obviously!

Abby, thanks.

Lurker, Rourke is always good.

Elana, sorry to overwhelm!

Angela Brown said...

So much Ninja news happening. That's actually a good thing. Great things going down with members of the mighty Ninja army.

I have not seen Immortals and will certainly give it a quick look, although your wife's comment about the costumes looking like salt and pepper shakers will be stuck in my head and when I see the Oracles I'll laugh hysterically :-)

My Chipmunk wants to see Brave so if we don't see it this weekend I will try to make it a bonding movie for the following weekend.

Have heard a lot of good things about Abe the Vampire Hunter. Hoping it will be a good movie. Still not sure if I will foot the money to catch the flick in the theaters.

Well, you have a rocking weekend and two thumbs to your wife for that killer observation. I loved it!

Lydia Kang said...

Thank you Ninja Captain Alex! I appreciate it!

Helena said...

So much going on, and so many choices. Thanks as always for being a great resource. And for warning me away from The Immortals. (Love the salt and pepper shaker comparisons.)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

DL, she is wonderful!

Angela, when you see the scene, you will KNOW that is the salt and pepper scene.

Lydia, most welcome!

Helena, my wife called it!

Heather Murphy said...

WOW, there's a lot going on! Great interview by the way. No Facebook? I'm shocked!

Lauren said...

Ugg, know what you mean about movies that take away a part of your life.

And I think you do qualify as famous in the blogosphere. :D

The Golden Eagle said...

Already unleashed the zombies on my town . . . LOL.

Heading over to Kela's blog! She's right--you are famous. :)

Summer Ross said...

I'm looking forward to see Brave. That's a lot of information- thank you for posting all of this and by the way, I think your pretty famous around here. LOL Have a terrific weekend Alex!

Pat Tillett said...

I'd heard that Immortals wasn't very good, now I know for sure! I'll pass on it, even for free.
You are so busy!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Heather, not on Facebook. It would be too much.

Lauren, thank you.

Golden, that's cool. And thanks.

Summer, thanks and you as well!

Pat, skip it!!!

Jennifer Lane said...

Congratulations to Roland, yeah!

Melissa Bradley said...

Yeah Immortals was meh, but the best part was Luke Evans as Zeus. I'd never seen a more animated Father of the Olympians before.

Good news all around. Thanks for the awesome linkage. :)

Can't wait to see both Brave and ALVH. Both are going to rock. And if we're posting on both days, does that mean I have to write two posts? Or can we just pick a day?

Leigh Covington said...

Oh.MY.HECK! There is so much going on! It's crazy! I'm way behind in my blogging, so it's nice to find it all here! And I'll hop over and give Andrew my champion vote!

Michael Pierce said...

Boy, there's a lot going on. That was a great interview, by the way. You're really cranking on your book. Have a great weekend! :)

Tara Tyler said...

amazing list of activity!
what a summer!
thanks, alex.

Medeia Sharif said...

Great news and links. I'll check out Kela's site.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Rek said...

You are famous, aren't you? Don't tell me that I was under the wrong impression all this time!
I'd personally like to see Abe the vampire hunter but I'd read the book first to see if the movie measures up.
So much happening, always does in the blog world, it's just that some cats doze off and think the world has stopped spinning, too.
I wish I had known about the championing part. And bad of you to tempt me with a FF contest, and Roland's book as well. Sigh, if I could break through that glass ceiling.
I liked your wife's observation. :D
Have a great weekend.
P.S. Rachna's sttm had me wondering, are we going to see Alex or Byron in their game avatar soon?

Empty Nest Insider said...

I tried to champion Andrew, but I think I was too late. Sorry I didn't have a chance to read this sooner. I look forward to reading your interview over the weekend! Julie

Patsy said...

Alex, you ARE famous!

C.M.Brown said...

I have watched Immortals and didn't like it either! Very disjointed.

I am saddened by Mina's update about AL:Vampire Hunter, the shorts looked really good for this movie.

Lots going on on the different sites. Will have to go check them out. Thanks Alex for keeping us all informed and connected.

You are a hero! I don't know about famous though!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Melissa, posting on EITHER day. Guess I need to word that better.

Thanks, Michael.

Thank you, Rek. Already I know there is a huge difference between book and movie. (What train scene?) And it would be a Byron avatar!

Julie, that's all right.

Thanks, Patsy.

CM, I can live with hero. And need to check out Mina's update.

Talli Roland said...

Thank God for you, Alex! I rely on you to keep track of the blogosphere! :)

Leovi said...

Yes, I also like listening to music on my photo shoots, I even think that directly affects me at work. Greetings.

Liz Fichera said...

Completely agree with you on THE IMMORTALS.

I loved the Abraham Lincoln book. So clever. Hope the movie delivers...First we'll see PROMETHEUS, though. Then ALVH.

ediFanoB said...

I know what happens when I do not switch on my PC for a day .....

Yesterday evening I have been too tired to check my Google Reader.

Thank you for all the links. I visited Bryn Thomas Schmidt and left a comment.

E.J. Wesley said...

First, you are famous. :) Second, I get what you're saying about Immortals, but I kind of enjoyed it all the same. Not as good as 300 by any means, but it satisfied some of same things for me.

Lots of awesome contests, etc. to check out. I could seriously just stop here once a week and have my blog time consumed.

SC Author said...

120 comments on this post? You are quite famous :) I'm new to this blog, and I'm already really liking it!

S. L. Hennessy said...

I was really disappointed with Immortals too (which I watched yesterday for the first time). Immortals and Prometheus both. It was a bad movie week this week.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Talli, the Ninja is always watching...

Liz, let me know what you think of that mess of a movie.

Edi, thanks for visiting Bryan!

EJ, don't mean to suck up all your blog time.

SC, this is actually a slow day...

SL, agreed!!

klahanie said...

Greetings Alex. J. Cavanaugh,
Yes, it's me, your biggest starstruck fan, quivering with nervous anxiety at the thought I would be here, yes here, typing away again, to the famous and lovable Alex.
I note your links and in regards to Arlee Bird (catches the worm), I have told him I must decline hijacking his blog and do a guest posting. I modestly informed him that it would be not fair on any other guest posters. I know he's 'devastated' that I wont guest post. Somehow, I think he will get over it.
And because I'm such a nice guy, Kela will be thrilled to know I'm on my way.
All the best to you and all your starstruck fans.
Gary...

Kimberlee Turley said...

No time for contests here, but I love the picture of the cats and girl on a highwire!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Gary, that is so considerate of you! Yes, you'd devastate all the other guests.

Milo James Fowler said...

So much good stuff! Alex, you da man.

Leovi said...

Yes, certainly must be very interesting and fun Follow My Lead. I wish you a happy Sunday.

Mark Koopmans said...

Aloha,

Glad to hear there will be two IWSG this month.... looking forward to reading the latest installments :)

Patsy said...

The follow my lead contest looks like fun.

LynNerdKelley said...

Wow, lots going on in the blogosphere right now. Thanks for keeping us updated on all of this. Sorry I missed the deadline to champion Andrew. Did he win?

I haven't seen Immortals. Thanks for the review. The oracles looking like salt and pepper shakers? That's so funny! Heading over to Kela's to read your answers. And you are famous!

michelle said...

Crikey! The blogiverse is as busy as ever... thanks for keeping us updated and for the links... there's some great stufff... giveaways/blog hops etc.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Milo, I try to keep on top of things.

Mark, thought it was only fair to allow two days.

Lynn, we still await the announcement of the winners...

Spacerguy said...

I enjoyed reading Kela's cracking good Ninja interview but I missed the Andrew deadline, drat! Thanks for the heads up on the Immortals.

Martha said...

Don't have time to check out everything but of course you are famous! I didn't know there was any question about that :)

Sherry Ellis said...

You sure do keep up with things! It must be because your famous. Thanks for all the information!

DeniseCovey _L_Aussie said...

Hello famous one. Just reading your post made me fatigued. So much happening, so little time!
