The Tellyfish
Why do Fairgoers Love German Cake?

Having a creepy dream. There's a small room one can walk into, with someone outside keeping track of visitors on a ledger. Strange black and chrome Geiger-like designs adorn the room. There's one chair you can sit in to contemplate questions or problems, and the room will answer. Things in the room shift and change appearance when I enter. A small post begins to transform into a robot or a guard, facing the chair.

"I loved your novel the Empty City (loved is an understatement). I think that the Empty City would make a great movie. It has all the captivating elements that great movies have -- love, fantasy, imagination, drama, etc. I am asking you for permission to let me write a screenplay for an Empty City movie. At first you may think this idea is crazy, like I did, but after you think about it, you will probably realize that it is a really good idea. Just think about it." -- email from Yair Oelbaum

What's New?

What's Going On? Waiting for Spring

The snow is slowly melting away, and as it does, it seeps into our basement and makes the carpets soggy in the hall outside the downstairs bathroom. As the snow melts, Alison shovels what remains of it back onto clear sections of the yard, trying to convince the starting-to-grow flowers that it's still the midst of winter (while also trying to spread out the huge snow pile so that it melts faster). Everyone has a cold, or is getting over one. One day it's warm, the next is cold again. Spring is coming... we can feel it. But winter lingers.

Inside, life continues at the usual pace. We're still catching up after Toy Fair (I have yet to unpack the van) but already we're getting ready for our next big event, the Gama Trade Show. Meanwhile, we're switching over to cable modem, a process that has left our network only semi-functional all week. We're starting to get used to having our new employee Marlene around all the time, and she's already been a great help. Work continues on our many projects... for specific details, check out the newly updated What's on the Stove report.

Lastly, here's a bit of exciting news: next month, radio stations all over the country will be featuring our card games as call-in giveaways! This means that wacky morning DJs at over 300 stations will soon be talking up our games as they offer them, one by one, as prizes for their listeners who call in! We're taking part in a promotional program called "Contest in a Can", which distributes cool stuff from various companies to a network of radio stations in need of neat stuff to give away as part of call-in contests. More on that campaign as it unfolds!

AndyHave a great week!

Thought Residue
"Extroverts are easy for introverts to understand, because extroverts spend so much of their time working out who they are in voluble, and frequently inescapable, interaction with other people. They are as inscrutable as puppy dogs. But the street does not run both ways. Extroverts have little or no grasp of introversion. They assume that company, especially their own, is always welcome. They cannot imagine why someone would need to be alone; indeed, they often take umbrage at the suggestion." -- Jonathan Rauch, "Caring for Your Introvert: The habits and needs of a little-understood group"

"This is really an argument between two kinds of prayer--vertical and horizontal. I don't have the slightest problem with vertical prayer. It is horizontal prayer that frightens me. Vertical prayer is private, directed upward toward heaven. It need not be spoken aloud, because God is a spirit and has no ears. Horizontal prayer must always be audible, because its purpose is not to be heard by God, but to be heard by fellow men standing within earshot." -- Roger Ebert, "Public Prayer Fanatics Borrow Page From Enemy's Script"
"Sensors detect another quarter in your pocket." -- post-game message displayed by a rare videogame called Starship 1 (I've been looking in old arcades for this game since the late 70s and only this week discovered what the actual name of the game was (which of course then allowed me to find webpages about it))
