In Which We Bring Up A Hairball...



Geez!

I honestly didn't think you all would be interested in The Hairball Express, a story custom-written for a 3-year-old. However, Art Lad is willing to explore some options (it will take ages for him to draw all the pictures he wants). But we can probably still come up with something interesting, visually. Alternately, we could audioblog it, since Thomas feels that is the best way, and as it was conceived, it was told, not written.

If you guys have a preference, let me know.

Meanwhile, Art Lad has the ONE picture he's completed for the book up at his place. And as he explains, it's not quite done either.

Enjoy. And I'll see what we can do about telling the story.

Yours,
From Somewhere on the Masthead

Hmm, perhaps an audioblog with some lovely pictures drawn by Art Lad on his blog to accompany. I think that would be lovely!

And of course we are interested, you are SUCH a tease!
 
Audioblog!
 
Both! Do an audioblog to satisfy us and then make the book as well. The picture of the train was so cool that it would be a shame not to have more!
 
Since none of us can seem to get enough, I vote for audio blog, book, and then made-for-tv movie. That way Art Lad could segway into animation...and a job at Pixar.

Begging for too much? Okay, how about the first two for starters?
 
AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG! AUDIOBLOG!
 
Wow. I was about to make my vote for an audioblog, but I think everyone's already made it clear that audio's definately the way to go.
 
Now hang on just a minute! While I agree that an audioblog is definitely something to consider, Art Lad must also have his part to play.

That means a vlog.

I'm thinking MM narration over Art Lad's pictures, maybe with a Ken Burns sort of pan and zoom effect. If you like the idea drop me a line. Flip and I would love to give you a hand.
 
I change my vote! VLOG is the way to go. =D
 
I think an audioblog would be cool, especially a joint Magazine Man/Artlad production. I'm sure whatever format you ultimatelyl decide upon will be enjoyed though.
 
Aurally consumable please.
 
'Tis a puzzlement. I think it would be a cool audio blog, but I kind of like the idea of making an AJ-like video with ArtLad's drawings accompanying the audio. No matter the media, I know it will be fun!!
 
An audioblog entry would be kinda cool. That way I could keep it instead of having to try to find it down the line sometime.
 
Allow me to dissent from popular opinion. I would like all versions, please (written/drawn, audioblog, and videoblog). Especially as I will, most likely, turn the written/drawn version into a printout that I can read to my daughter at bedtime. Also, we'll have an art project where we pick out non-illustrated parts of the story and create artwork for them. That Magazine Man, he sure am an inspiration for the creativity.
 
Audioblog makes sense to me. And for the record, I'm fairly sure that if you left out a piece of information about...say, a rusty nail...we'd all want to hear about it. This crew wants it all...
 
Audio Blog ... and in chapthers ... so that I can feel the same suspense as if I was reading your blogs.

Plus ... it would be easier to convert to something that I can carry around in my IPOD.
 
why would Moxie be drinking on the job? (get it, "Rusty Nail"...!)
 
Audioblog...so I can play it for my son. He's three, so I guess he'd be the perfect audience.
 
The Twinkie and I vote for any format that suits you and Thomas!

Can't wait! :)
 
YES, audioblog.

Hey, how about you start an MM podcast. :) I am sure these stories you've written would be a hoot to listen to live on my iPod.

But if now, I'll settle for the audioblog.

Perhaps you should look into copywriting the story and maybe you and Thomas go into publishing....

Let's HEAR it already. ;)
 
MM:

1) Of course, I want to hear the story, too.

2) You should probably write it for $ publication, too.

3) And have Thomas illustrate it.

4) If it's ever animated, please let me audition for a role. Voice-overs ARE what I do for an actual living.
