I killed a baby lizard. Part of the reason I’m a vegetarian is that I can’t stand violence. I can barely tolerate anger, because I know the vast wells of anger I dip into can make me so blind with rage that I wish violence on people and things. So to kill something has left me incredibly sad. I wasn’t angry (I hope … a dog had just chased Tigrito, so my adrenaline was pumping). The tiny thing was so fast, it darted under the…
For years, I’ve suffered from pretty intense headaches. Usually behind one eye or the other and they lasted for hours until I could sleep it off. Generally the only thing that ever helped was an extremely hot shower, and even that only helped temporarily unless I could fall asleep quickly enough. Last year, at a comic convention, I started seeing circles of light in my eyes. The interwebs quickly told me this is ofter a precursor to the worst kind of migraine, so I enjoyed…
One of the things about being a writer, especially one with one foot in the semi-corporate world and one barely in the entertainment (if mainly licensed) world, is – what can you safely blog about? Reviewing things (films, TV, incredibly heavy paperback copies of Game of Thrones) is dicey. If I tell the world what I REALLY think of an intellectual property, the world of the internet guarantees my snark is available forever (for the record, I happily carry those incredibly heavy paperbacks around, Mr.…
LOL, okay, they don’t namecheck me, but they do talk about my books … as well as my buddy Paul’s upcoming and current books. Check out this great article about the current Star Trek publishing trends!
Saw my STAR TREK: PHASER book at Barnes & Noble next to the Doctor Who and Superman books! So exciting! I’d love to do a mini-book kit for Who, so perhaps the licensed publishing gods will be kind!
Wow! What a nice article on my next book due in the fall! Thanks, STARTREK.COM!
Sadness and woe! My STAR TREK: PHASER book was not out yet at Barnes & Noble. Still, it will be there shortly, so ask for it – nay DEMAND it – by name!
A new logo and new look for Chip Carter.com! I’m so stoked, I love this new icon, designed by the awesome folks at The MindLabs! Also … my new book (yes, it’s small – but it IS a book, gosh-darn it!) comes out this month. The Star Trek Light-up Phaser and mini-book is on Amazon and will be in stores soon! Off to Phoenix for a conference, so no time to discuss this week’s Justified, RuPaul OR the Real Housewives of BH reunion!
Genius. Last night’s stunner finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race capped for me, as a marketing guy, the culmination of years of work on Ru’s part. Four seasons of ever-growing popularity and ratings, B+ List guest judges and now, a live crowning of America’s Next Drag Superstar that may OR MAY NOT be dependent on Twitter and Facebook input.
“It’s a Mister Death or something.” Heartbreakingly, my dad (gone just over a year now) warned me there would come a day when I was old enough to spend more time going to funerals than weddings. Two people I know – it may be romanticizing to call them friends, perhaps – but people I knew, worked with, partied with – both gone within the space of a week. It is enough to make you climb back in bed and pull the covers over your head.
