It's been a while since I've been on a podcast...the last time was back in August of 2008. Hopefully I'll be a bit more articulate this time....

Rough Week

This has been a pretty rough week for those around me. I've had co-workers lose their parents, friends lose their pets, and other friends lose their jobs and relationships. Sickness and strife abound.

(Not to mention the deadly earthquake in China this morning. The universe definitely has a mean on right now.)

Into that mix comes the untimely death of one of the brightest stars in the AFOL community - Nate 'nnenn' Nielson. The Brothers Brick have a nice eulogy up for him - it speaks more eloquently than I can.

I didn't have much direct interaction with nnenn - but I was still inspired by his work and will miss his presence in the online community.

Friend us on Facebook and you could Win a Rock Monster

So I've finally entered the year 2005 and set up a Facebook page for Reasonably Clever. As an incentive for folks to follow along there, I'm holding a quick mini-contest.

On May 1, 2010 I'll randomly pick five Facebook Fans...and each of those lucky individuals will win...


Yes, one of the many Rock Monsters currently invading the Brick House Comic could be yours!

Come on. That has to be worth a click...

And the winners are:
Carole Vogel, Tettee Green, Théo Charré, Eamonn O Donnell and Flamero Burns

For those of you who where curious how the winners were selected, I used to generate five random numbers, and matched those up with the friends list.

Congrats to the winners, and everyone else stay tuned for your next chance to win!

Comic Archive move is complete!

I finally finished moving the full comic archive into the Comicpress system!
The comic posted-on dates aren't very accurate (a compromise between hacking Comicpress' one-comic-per-day code and having a one-strip-per-archive-page archive) but the content is all there.

As a bonus, the story is now broken up into discrete chunks - it should make moving around a lot easier. I still need to go through and update in-strip quick links, but that's not a priority at the moment. I figure I'll update those as I find them/find the time.

I have a few projects that need to be completed first, but my next goal with regards to the archive is to finally get some decent character bios put together. Having the comics in the new archive was a necessary first step.

The question now is do I go the full wiki route (like Legostargalactica) or opt for a series of wordpress articles that I could update from time to time.

Something for me to think about, anyway.

Contest at BCN

I know it's been a bit since the last contest here at Reasonably Clever - I do have an exciting one in the works, so keep watching for that.

And, in the meantime, I'd like to announce a nice little contest over at BCN. It's quite a bit different from the standard LEGO challenge - and really worth a look.

Intrigued? Then click on through to The First Annual BCN Caption Contest!
