The Turfey
Why Would the Titanic Cause the Stock Market Crash?

Sitting with Skip on the back of an open, mostly empty, moving van. I'm drinking seltzer water from a glass. "I imagine that they're probably good for each other," says Skip. "They -- they have a shared nuttiness."

"Fluxx Version 3.0 adds welcome variety to the classic game, while maintaining its wackiness. If you haven't picked up a copy yet, you owe it your yourself to 'Buy 1, Play 1.'" -- Jason Winter, Scrye magazine

What's Going On? Stuff Happens

Wow, there's so much to talk about. Last week, Alison went to Hawaii for Steph's wedding; meanwhile, I went with Kristin and Marlene to Las Vegas for the GAMA Trade Show. By the time we all got back, our nation was at war. Being as we are a bunch of hippies who oppose war, this is a major bummer for us. It's enough to make us consider moving to Canada. Anyway, since getting home we've all been busy getting caught up on our email, recovering from our traditional post-trade-show headcolds, and watching war news.

Lots of stuff happened at GTS that I would write about here if I had more time... but as it is, I'm not even going to bother putting up yet another photo of our standard trade show booth. (It looked just like it did at Toy Fair.) Instead, here's a photo Alison took of Steph with her new husband Paul just after they got hitched. Congratulations, you two! Have a great life together!

One topic that can't wait is the radio marketing campaign we're trying out this month. All-Star Radio Network is a company that runs a promotion called "Contest-in-a-Can," and what they do is to gather up cool stuff from companies that want exposure, and then provide said stuff to a bunch of radio stations that need cool stuff to give away to their listeners as prizes (you know, for "the 15th caller!" or whoever). Since we believe in experimenting with different marketing concepts, we're giving this a try. Sometime during the next month, over 300 radio stations around the country will be giving copies away of our 4 card games to their listeners. And you never know who you might hear on the air... already I have been called by one of these stations, and interviewed on the air during a morning drive-time radio show, somewhere in Michigan! (And I think I sounded OK, too!) Check the listing to see if a station near you is participating!

As for Alison's adventures in Hawaii, she's working on her own report.


Thought Residue
Medical marijuana has been legalized in Holland, which means that if your doctor prescribes it, you can get it at the pharmacy and your insurance will pay for it!

"How do these two standpoints, often shared by the same person, line up? How can they co-exist rationally? How can one be pro-life in the case of a fetus but pro-death in the case of military aggression? I'd really like to know your insights. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around this." -- The Jude (aka smurfchick)
"Have you forgotten we wouldn't even have this country known as America if it weren't for the French? That it was their help in the Revolutionary War that won it for us? That our greatest thinkers and founding fathers -- Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, etc. -- spent many years in Paris where they refined the concepts that lead to our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution? That it was France who gave us our Statue of Liberty, a Frenchman who built the Chevrolet, and a pair of French brothers who invented the movies? And now they are doing what only a good friend can do -- tell you the truth about yourself, straight, no b.s. Quit pissing on the French and thank them for getting it right for once." -- A Letter from Michael Moore to George W. Bush on the Eve of War
