A.Real.Girl is, last I heard, trapped in a basement with Scott Sigler, shipping out copies of his new book, The MVP. If you think this sounds like fun, you’ve obviously never been in close proximity to the highly excitable, extremely ridiculous, Future Dark Øverlord. Anyway, apparently basements are notoriously bad for wi-fi access so she sent up a flare and I responded to help out with this week’s Comment of the Week! Check it out after the fold!
Kudos on the Vanilla Ice reference. Convergent evolution: It’s kinda like how Mark Wahlberg and Justin Timberlake both found ways to survive as film actors when their pop music niches ran dry. Poor, Vanilla Ice however…he failed to adapt successfully (as anyone who watched ‘Cool As Ice’ can attest to).
Congrats for a hilarious and very well thought-out example of convergent evolution in popular culture! :)
And don’t forget, starting next week, Atlanta will be hosting Dragon*Con and the Skeptrack and many of us (including A and Sigler) will be attending that as well as the Star Party! That video is from last year’s Dragon*Con and should give you a little taste of the madness that it involves. So, come say hi!
Thanks to Skepchick alum Jill Powell for the sweet COTW art!
