SEPTEMBER 24, 2016

On this Saturday I can't help but think about the show Big Brother. The American version just ended on Wednesday, and now a new version is starting next Wednesday. Problem #1: I'm in Canada, and so far, it seems it won't be shown here on TV. Normally it is always shown in Canada so this is strange. Hopefully I'll get to see it somehow thanks to the magic of the internet. Problem #2: It doesn't seem to be following the CBS format of 3 hourly programs a week. It seems everyday something will be shown. This will be tricky for me to follow but I'm giving it a shot. I'm a long time #BB fan. In my story Old Foes: Violent Lives (which is a #KindleUnlimited story), I even based an alliance of villains on an alliance in the #BB house. Yes, it's true. More on that some other time.

Almost all of the characters have names based on towns in Newfoundland and Labrador. For example, one of the main villains is named Wabana. The last name of the main family is Churchill, after Churchill Falls.

Crazy Gas is a super-hero comic. Durgo Bann (beautifully painted by Christopher Geary) is sci-fi. And Blood Feather is a mix of both. (Durgo Bann himself also appears in Blood Feather.) New characters. New stories.

CRAZY GAS – THE COMIC BOOK SCRIPT – ISSUE FIVE

Available here on Amazon is Crazy Gas - The Comic Book Script - Issue Five. Thhhis is the script for the final issue of the first Crazy Gas storyline. But, you say, why is the script for issue five available when the issues before that have not come out yet? It's for a few reasons. One of them is to show people that the storyline is finished. And that the final issue of the storyline has been available for sale since early 2013. Another reason is it seemed like a fun thing to do lol

If you want to check out the script, please go to here.

CHURCHILL FALLS INTERVIEWS DOCUMENTARY ON HOLD

The promising documentary about the Churchill Falls hydro operation in Labrador has sadly been put on hold until a day comes when it receives the support it would need to go forward.
