  • Hey, guys. I've done a longer post about this on the WoB Talk blog, but here's the short version:

    A bit of news: I'm about to bring out my first collaborative CD, and my first solo CD will follow in a week or so. The collaborative CD exists in a limited print run (100 copies) and will also soon be available digitally on Bandcamp. My collaborators, Leslie Hudson and Devin Melanson, and I are going to a convention this weekend, but whatever we have left afterwards will be for sale. Details will follow eventually. For now, the Facebook page linked above at least provides proof that the CD exists. It contains three of my songs, "Everybody Hates Elves," "Being Watson," and "Damn Those Dwarves." Leslie and Devin, who are musical partners, have provided seven songs, three about Star Wars and four about The Princess Bride.

    I would also like to offer a first look at the cover, designed by Erik Mohr, of my solo collection, Beowulf Pulled My Arm Off. Here you go:

    Panel 1: Rahim and Casey meet Barbara and Marie in the Davies College quadrangle. Barbara is still hanging onto Marie's wrist.

    Rahim: Wow...she got you here?

    Marie: Barbara is possessed of a certain wiry strength.

    Panel 2:

    Marie:
    I shouldn't be here. I set things on fire.

    Rahim: Marie, you know none of us believes that.

    Panel 3: Anthea approaches.

    Anthea: I see you're pointlessly back again.

    Barbara [points]: You may be safer over there by the large amount of water.


    Panel 4:

    Marie:
    So none of you believes that, then.

    Barbara: I don't count because I have no social skills.


    Alt-Text: "But seriously, guys, let's move over towards the pond."

    CD Cover: A glum-looking hairy monster sits in a living room in front of some curtains. The text beside him reads: "Beowulf Pulled My Arm Off / Kari Maaren."
