Since midnight, 1600 people looked at SubSITE by SEVEN O'CLOCK THIS EVENING! I'll bet it's twice that by midnight.
I knew SOMETHING was going on. I've been adding a new Art Mines tunnel and SUNSite seemed to be running slowly, and Jesus says we've been getting a GOOD FLURRY OF ORDERS by email, fax and 1-8886-69-2323!! BIG orders, like $50, $100 orders for Dobbs swag!
AND THANKS MOST OF ALL TO MIKE E, WHO MADE IT ALL POSSIBLE!!
That WIRED article is HILARIOUS!!! Mark Fraunfelter did a GREAT job. (He told me this whole episode reminded him of "the old days of the Church".) Reading the article, and then following the links to the SPUTUM WEBSITE, and knowing that all this had doubled our sales this week, ahhhh.... now that's true Slack. The kind of thing that keeps an old Scribe scribin'!
I HAD NOT SEEM THE SPUTUM WEBSITE!!! I've probably put a LINK to it from SubSITE but I had not even seen the damned thing! LOVELY layout. The way the artwork is represented by thumbnails is EXACTLY how the art mines at SubSITE should look, but I barely have time to upload and create the bare links. (Take a look at Art Mines Tunnel #10... the Fernandinande pages alone are much bigger than most websites. I believe I uploaded 45 megs of pure Dobbsgraphics this week, 75% of it Fernandinande's.) There's a HELL of a lot of art at the SPUTUM site that I never saw on a.b.s.... sigh... and wouldn't you know it, my subscribing to Zippo apparently BROKE it! BUT I'm sure they'll get their act together. My big dream is to once again, someday, make some art myself. I am SO ENVIOUS.
Sterno was here between Austin visits, and I forced him to look at what his fellow arteests were doing, and who knows, MAY have convinced him to try a.b.s. He HAS been very busy on alt.fan.keanu.reeves. (But that's for another WIRED article.) He will bitch and gripe about his local server, just like I did, but I hope he starts posting stuff.
I'm not finished with gallery10.html yet, really... hope to get it into better shape by late tonight.
There is a lot of email stacked up from you alt.binaries.slakfux, which I haven't answered, because I've been in and out of town so much, and trying to get caught up in SORTING and INSTALLING all the EVIL WORK you sent.
This weekend the Dallas Corporate Sold Out Clench (me, Jesus, someone else) go to Austin for the SURVIVAL RESEARCH LABS show. Yep, the real thing. We're staying with Paco Nathan of Fringeware, the show promoter, so we'll be getting a behind-the-scenes look at this insane event. Paco is scared shitless. He says these SRL people are crazy. He said to bring GAS MASKS and gun range style ear plugs. G. Gordon Gordon will be with us for security. The mystery man Puzzling Evidence is supposedly on his way. It is rumored that Dobbs himself has been seen in Austin lately!! (And HELL we can always FAKE it for photo ops, and/or black ops, with the Joe Riley FullHead Dobbshead Rubber Mask!)
OMENS AND PORTENTS, friends. I talked to Diana of SRL today and she's very excited. For one thing, the SRL show is on GOOD FRIDAY -- and WE'RE bringing JESUS CHRIST with us! The comet Hale Bobb... all the planets are lining up, pointing towards... THE END TIMES...
Paco wants to see The Bleeding Head of Arnold Palmer launched with the rail-gun cannon. He's the guy who footed the bill for this thing, so... COULD BE!.
If my teenage KIDS had ANY CLUE as to what a COOL TIME THEY COULD HAVE if they didn't mind being SEEN with us old fogeys... oh well. I ain't gonna buy their $30 membership for 'em either.
Speaking of which -- ya'll need to start thinking about THE X-DAY DRILL!! I know rural NY is a bit far to drive for some of you... but I'm telling you, it's worth it.
