it doesn't matter.

What's New?

Enter the Vortex!

This week, I created the all-purpose Looney Labs advertisement shown here. As 2005 winds down, we're starting to gear up for the 2006 convention season, which means it's already time to be sending in the artwork for ads that will appear in the literature being mailed out to people who are expected to attend next year's conventions. (To be specific, we need to send something to the Genghis Con people, since we're to be Guests of Honor at their next convention and it's in February.) And since we can't just keep using our same-old ads over and over again, I created this! (Yes, it is quite a bit like that ad I did 2 years ago, with Icehouse pyramids tumbling out of a doorway into another dimension... but that was an ad specifically for the pyramids, this one is for Looney Labs in general.)

That's about all I have to say this week. We're still trapped in the vortex of our own busy-ness... between the overtime work of building & running our own company, and the ever-daunting task of packing our stuff so we can move, not to mention trying to maintain a social life, we often feel like we don't have time to breathe. But hey, I guess that's normal, here in the early years of the 21st century America...

Speaking of being busy, things are really hopping in our sales department right now, as you might expect, what with the holidays upon us. Alison has been so busy making sales calls that she didn't have time to do a new Animeld! But happily, the sales are going well...

AndyThanks for reading, have a great week, and Don't Forget to Play!
Note to Rabbits: If you will be attending any of the 3 conventions listed below, which we'll be Guests of Honor at next year, please add your name to our convention roster, so we know to expect you!

Thought Residue
"As elected and consecrated bishops of the church, we repent of our complicity in what we believe to be the unjust and immoral invasion and occupation of Iraq. In the face of the United States Administration's rush toward military action based on misleading information, too many of us were silent. We confess our preoccupation with institutional enhancement and limited agendas while American men and women are sent to Iraq to kill and be killed, while thousands of Iraqi people needlessly suffer and die, while poverty increases and preventable diseases go untreated. Although we value the sacrifices of the men and women who serve in the military, we confess our betrayal of the scriptural and prophetic authority to warn the nations that true security lies not in weapons of war, but in enabling the poor, the vulnerable, the marginalized to flourish as beloved daughters and sons of God. We confess our failure..." -- A Call to Repentance and Peace with Justice, signed by a majority of the bishops of the United Methodist Church (GW Bush's own denomination)

"President George W. Bush has suddenly shifted rhetoric on the war in Iraq. Until recently, the administration's line was basically, 'Everything we are saying and doing is right.' It was a line that held him in good stead, especially with his base, which admired his constancy above all else. Now, though, as his policies are failing and even his base has begun to abandon him, a new line is being trotted out: 'Yes, we were wrong about some things, but everybody else was wrong, too, so get over it.'" -- Fred Kaplan, "I Was Wrong, but So Were You"
"Men from all sides, whom mere minutes ago had been trying to kill each other, now rose from the trenches, cut down the wires that separated them, and hugged each other, shook each others hands, shared food, drink, alcohol, cameradery. Three languages flowed from their tongues, and whether or not a man understood German or English or French didn't matter. The message was clear. The war is over. We are alive. Let us celebrate together and fight no more. 87 years have passed, and that message is nearly lost. In the US, where I am, we celebrate today as 'Veteran's Day', celebrating those that served in the military. The 'old name', of Armistice Day all but forgotten." -- Buddha Buck, "The War is Over, We Live, Let Us Celebrate and Fight No More", 10 November 2005, 11:20pm EST

"One of my old work buddies introduced me to Fluxx, and I played about 300-400 games of it while I was pretending to work." -- comments with an order from Daniel B.
