10 Things Making Me Happy

Oh hey there, sunshine. I want to let you know that from Thursday to Monday I am going to be camping at Playa Del Feugo in Delaware (kind of like a smaller version of Burning Man), and I’m not going to have internet access! There are blog posts scheduled for each day, but I may not be able to promote them on social media like usual, so just come on over and see what’s up when you remember!

Since I’m not going to be here, I wanted to also make some announcements:

1) The “What’s Your View?” Mail Art Show book is available for purchase. If you were a participant in the show you get a little discount!

2) Round 3 for the Snail Mail Game Show is now closed. I will be getting these mailed out ASAP. You can feel free to sign up for Round 4 starting now. More details for Round 4 will be announced once the results from Round 3 are posted.

3) The ad banner sale is still going on. Get a big space for $2.50 and a small one for $1 with coupon codes “coolashell” and “becauseiloveyou” respectively.

I would also like to share some silly video footage of me attempting to recreate the intro for Gob’s magic show in Arrested Development. If you’re unfamiliar with that, you’re gonna want to watch (at least) the beginning part of this. And when you’re done that, watch my video. And when you’re done that, go watch all of Arrested Development. It’s an amazing show.

Anyway, I made this for my friend April as her very belated birthday present. Speaking of birthdays, yesterday my dad turned sixty! Old man with an awesome daughter, eh? What’s on your happy list this week?
