Bed & Breakfast

I've finally gone and looked at my buddy's blog: G20 Bed & Breakfast. It's a must read satirical cometary on the upcoming excitement.

We sold out of Cyberpunk Apocalypse Issue One today. I'll be doing a small second run shortly. That's the good news.
The bad news is, Lianne crashed her scooter and couldn't get to the reading that was going to be at our house here. Thankfully she's ok. She still wants to do the reading, so keep an eye out for whenever that ends up happening.
The house is chugging along. Ross is considering doing some comic work, and Sara has started expanding a short story she wrote earlier in her stay at the Cyberpunk Apocalypse.
Our web-design problem is changing hands again, so be patient with the site and hopefully the Cyberpunk Apocalypse's first issue will be up for free soon.
We had some dogs for two days, now we have none. A lot of things have been happening actually. I don't know. I should really be working on my comic right now. Here's a clip from it:

Friday Open Hours and Pittsburgh's First Small Press Festival

This Friday's open hours has been great. A number of people came to work on their writing, while our new friend Miriam started cataloguing all the books in the take-a-book leave-a-book library, so that once the new website is up you'll be able to see what books we have, and what's new.
Meanwhile Sara, Ross, and I primered the kitchen in the back house, so we can paint and move in soon.

In other news Pittsburgh's first Small Press Festival is this month! July 18th and 19th the Cybepunk Apocalypse will be tabling along with a number of other small press, writing, and lit people from all over. We'll be up at the Regina Gouger Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University from noon till 6pm. It should be a lot of fun.

New sweet video by local designer

technology is everywhere. from Justin Edmund on Vimeo.

This is a video I just saw by a local CMU design student by the name of Justin Edmund. To the guys that try and send me misogynist stories about guitarists with robotic arms that beat hookers in their spare time--watch this video and think about what the cyberpunk apocalypse means in the context of the world we live in today.
