<< Another Awesome Seattle Weekend | And Therein Lies The Problem >>
yeti Sightings

I am omnipresent:

  • The third installment of the New Fathers Roundtable appears today in The Morning News. I have participated in all. If you want to read them in order, you can start with Fathers Roundtable I and Fathers Roundtable II.
  • I will be on KUOW's The Works Tuesday evening at 8:00, talking about ways to make money by blogging. I am obviously the ideal person to discuss this issue, as I have yet to figure out how to earn so much as a Zagnut bar off my efforts.
  • Tomorrow also brings another edition of Ariel Stalling's Salon of Shame at the Rendezvous. The last one was a hoot, and this one promises to be every bit as good. I may-or-may-not be performing, depending on whether I can dig up something embarrassing enough to read.
  • Last Saturday I was featured on a Canadian program called Definitely Not The Opera as "the curator of all board game knowledge." It doesn't look like there's any way to hear the program online, but I'm looking for one (since I haven't even heard the show myself, yet).
  • defective yeti was named Seattle Magazine's "Blog Of The Month." I wouldn't have even known if Beth hadn't alerted me to the fact. A few years ago Seattle Weekly named dy Best Local Blog and, here again, I only found out because a reader saw it and dropped me a line. So if you see dy mentioned anywhere, feel free to let me know -- odds are it will be news to me.
  • The above item, illustrated: My mother wrote to tell me that defective yeti is cited as the source of a Scott McCellan photo appearing in a Russian newspaper.
  • I've begun freelancing for Knucklebones Magazine, a periodical devoted to games and puzzles. My first article will appear in the May issue.
  • Wednesday and Friday afternoons I stand on the corner of Pike and 5th, shake a stick at passing cars, and shout "Devil! Devil! Devil!" Watch for me.

I noticed you left out your photo spread in MAXIM. There is nothing to be ashamed of, although I'm a bit surprised they printed the photo where your 2d20 are uncovered.

2d20? what does Rob know about you that we don't?

Or is that some kind of new word for genitalia that only bloggers understand?

Huh. And all this time I thought you were the guy at *Sixth* and *Pine* with the "I AM THE SON OF GOD" sign. Good to know. I'll wave next time!

Maybe we can take up a collection to get you that Zagnut bar you've always dreamed of. I found a nickel in the couch cushions recently that I suppose I could part with for a good cause like that.

And what's your mom doing reading Russian news websites?

That was *you* at Pike and 5th? Dude, you really scared my nephew when we drove by last Friday. And what was with that hat?

There is unfortunatly no way to listen to past DNTO shows.

Posted by: Chris Too on January 9, 2006 7:05 PM

I heard your segment on DNTO, but never connected the name to the website. Oh well, my wife and I both enjoyed the game talk.

Posted by: scott on January 9, 2006 8:41 PM

Yeah, the Mothercorp (aka Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) takes all those fine tax dollars we give them, and what do they leave us with? A heartless website detailing all the fun they had on our tab, with no way for us to enjoy it later. Pah. At least the Brits get a couple weeks to listen to past programmes on the Beeb. I for one really want those "Dead Dog Cafe" shows back.

Posted by: Rusty Badger on January 9, 2006 8:55 PM

Evidently, you aren't concerned about over exposure.

One word: Bennifer. Think about that mr. omnipresent. :)

Posted by: Wende on January 9, 2006 9:44 PM

Hey, I'm just across Fifth from you! Stop by if you need a wilted carnation.

Actually my uncle worked for the CBC taking old shows mostly news content and converting it to digital format. Sadly there was just too much content in the archives and no one wanted to flip the bill (remember the CBC budget gets slashed every year) so the whole group got let go. Even sadder, if the conservatives win this election then the CBC will be gone completely.

you were listed as best of the web in businessweek a few months ago - just image how much time ceos lose reading about your "My Humps" antics

I once saw the guy with the stick buying a latte at Nordstrom and he seemed totally normal. Then he went back to his corner and started shouting about the devil and Frye apartments again.

Endothermal, is that true about current CBC programs? I'd love to have shows like Go! available for download but when I contacted them about it they said it was a copyright issue due to the live performances. You can always get past programs of Quirks so I'm wondering how they get around it? In this day of Tivo I'm thinking we should be able to set our own listening schedule and not be forced to conform to theirs. I pretty much love the CBC.

Posted by: bob on January 12, 2006 5:19 AM

nah, they got rid of the entire group to the best of my knowledge. I think with current shows they make a decision to make them available in electronic format at the time and if they decide to do it we're in luck if not, bloody hell.

Posted by: endothermal on January 12, 2006 8:42 AM

so that was you with the stick last wens. eh.
