Something for the Weekend

Writing a book is no fun. I don't recommend it. But there is one enjoyable part and that's watching the illustrations come in. If I do another book it will be illustrations only.

If you are into Tarot cards at all, I want to direct your attention to a deck that is available that is really a part of The Jerx extended family. It was originally commissioned by Andrew Costello who is handling the financial and distribution aspects of the upcoming book and shoots much of the video for this site as well. And it was designed and painted by Stasia Burrington, who is doing the illustrations for The Jerx, Volume 1.

Check it out in her etsy store. I don't know how many are available so don't sleep on it if you're interested. Support good people. Tell her Andy sent you.

I will be giving away a copy of the deck to the winner of the "Judge's Prize" for the #erdnaseblows contest. (One person will win the contest randomly and get their book money refunded. The "judge's prize" is my bonus award for my favorite video.)

In the end, 8 people destroyed their copy of Erdnase. A couple of the videos are below, you can find the rest on my Twitter.

Off topic, I have a movie recommendation. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping was one of the funnier movies I've seen in the last few years. Check it out if you dig the Lonely Island at all. If not go see Me Before You, you little pansy.

And finally, while I'm doing youtube links, here's the inspiration for today's post title: Something for the Weekend by the Divine Comedy. One of my favorites in the all-too-rare genre of songs with twist endings.
