Coloring Words

Somebody should swing by their local newsstand.

That’s because the January edition of Wired Magazine is on stands now, and features another back-page “Found: Artifacts From the Future” piece by yours truly. This month, I postulate what the crayons of the future might be like, which include everything from the global warming-inspired “Brown Sky” to the fad-tastic “iPod White.”

You can check out a scan of the article (which never replaces buying the actual thing) here.

Magazine Words on TV

The September issue of Wired Magazine is on stands now, and you know what that means.

In the new issue, I take a look at some of the best and some of the worst new Fall TV shows coming your way in the coming weeks. I was fortunate enough to see about 95% of all the new shows and was fortunate enough to see some of the true gems. And while not all my picks made it into the article (Let’s Rob Mick Jagger… and Kidnapped for example), pick up a copy and take a look at some of the good ones.

Or, you could always be the cheap bastard you are and look at it here.

An Assembly Line of Words

Just off the assembly line is the June edition of Wired Magazine, which features my latest “yarn” entitled Introducing…the 2006 Pixar!

The article takes a quick detour from normal movie previews to give a look at Pixar creative guru John Lasseter and how a childhood obsession with cars eventually turned into the upcoming flick of the same name. Plus, I pull back the curtain of secrecy on some of the really cool hidden “inside jokes” the folks at Pixar have poured into the gas tank of their next digital marvel.

Illustrated Words

Let the games begin.

The May 1st issue of Sports Illustrated hits stands tomorrow, and includes a mention about The Lost Blogs in their Scorecard section.

And now I’d like to take this opportunity (and all this extra space which I never have) to let everybody know that if you’ve never tried a cream cheese and jelly sandwich, to definitely go home right now and make one on white bread of some kind. Okay, thanks.
