Apparently I write like…

From the popular online game thing, via Joe Hill, Warren Ellis and others… I put in the opening of my current work and I got this back: I write like James Joyce I Write Like. Analyze your writing! Well, um… okay… I did think Joe Hill’s result was funny Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

April Fools everywhere

April Fools Day is fast becoming the day to hide from the Internet. Google alone does about four different pranks across their properties, which though often funny, are never particularly believable. Everywhere you look, sites do mystery redesigns, Tweets are loaded with jokes, and every forum post has to be re-examined for the likelihood it’s ...

Something I did in November

Something I did in November

‘Ask Zawarhi’ — apparently not a joke

Noticed this piece in the news today … at first I was sure it was an April Fool’s Day joke, then I saw it was reported in December initially, and posted here on April 2 anyway. Anyway … “Ask Zawarhi” responses coming soon from Qaeda leader” WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Al Qaeda deputy Ayman al-Zawarhi’s responses ...
