My work on your world is done. I am ready to ascend to the stars and bring pop-culture-related joy to the alien masses of distant galaxies.
This came on the heels of what I'm calling "a damned good day," at least digital-wise.
For the past couple of weeks I've been in talks with a SciFi celebrity TO BE NAMED LATER who has shown solid interest in recording Citadel: First Colony for the Audible.com release. That's cool, nay I say awesome, and I'll be making The Big Announcement(TM) when I have more to share.
Also yesterday I got kudos from Seth Godin over yesterday's blog entry. He also said that our ideas weren't quite the same, but I think that's just cover. Don't worry, Seth! We're cool! No lawsuits over intellectual property either way, right? Right?
Yeah, we're cool.
But it was a random comment to Steve Martin that gave me the biggest ego boost of the day. He was saying something about his iPhone syncing slowly. I wrote that my iPhone syncs slowly too, but mostly because it's actually the cardboard display from Best Buy. So it's still faster than the real thing.
Now, his response takes a bit of interpretation, but I'm going with "he laughed." Because, dammit, I want this as a win. He wrote:
Eh? Eh?!? Laughter. I sense it. So do you. DO NOT DENY ME THIS MOMENT.
I even showed up on his website:
See it? Right there under "Twitter." PROOF.
He's gonna take me to the Oscars, I just know it.
Now if only I could stop automatically typing his name as "Steve Marting." I don't know what that's about. Damned robot fingers have minds of their own.
I only just noticed that Steve Martin and I share the same color scheme. Coincidence? That's for history to decide.
