…but probably not for the reason you think.
In the past, I tried to post at least one article every day (or at least 30 a month if I couldn’t write one each day), but this marks just the ninth post this month.
Part of this is due to the fact that I’m now a father who must tend to his newborn daughter’s every need. Another part of my absence is due to me being neck-deep in upcoming projects. But there’s another factor at play here, and it’s one I’ve yet to talk about here on The Blarg.
Tonight, that changes.
The entire Shady clan—myself, KB, Grey, Mr. Fabulous, Meatshake, and Heisenberg—will be moving out of L.A. in just a few short weeks. KB has accepted a job as design director of Chicago Magazine in, duh, Chicago. Her first day on the job is October 1st.
Of course, my work will keep me moving back and forth between L.A. and Chicago (or wherever we end up after that) indefinitely. In fact, we’re not even officially giving up our apartment here, so I’ll still have a bed to sleep in when I visit. Still, things will be different starting in just a few short weeks. Obviously.
Because of this, KB and I have spent much of August getting our shit together: breaking the news to loved ones out here, figuring out movers, looking for a new place to live, and drinking a lot to ease the insanity.
September probably won’t be any less busy/crazy, but I promise to be vigilant about posting more often (including our progress) as our time in L.A. winds down.
So stay tuned, folks… because shit’s about to get fucking nuts.
Waiting on an aneurysm and/or coronary,
…we will be back from spending ten days in Berlin…
…and four days in Istanbul.
Hence, the painfully long delay in updates here on “The Blarg.”
That delay is over as of today.
…my good friend Marla Campbell asked if I’d put Mark Linn-Baker and Bronson Pinchot (AKA Cousin Larry Appleton and Balki Bartokomous of Perfect Strangers fame) in a header here on The Blarg.
I said sure, and quickly made up the banner you see above.
NOTE: For those of you happening upon this post late, here’s the banner again:
But I told Marla I’d do it on one condition: That she create an illustration of Cousin Larry and Balki, and then send me a photo of it when it was done.
A few days later, I got this in an email:
Clearly, Marla is a woman of her word. Check out more of her work here.
Don’t be ridiculous,
PS: Any other header requests, dear readers?
…but we were in Germany and Belgium for two weeks.
The good news is I’m back, so look for a plethora of posts pronto.
So many Ps,
…doesn’t look too different from the site’s top five commenters in 2012.
My mom still holds the crown for top commenter with an even 200 comments (nearly doubling last year’s total), but my good friend Brandon Doherty moved up a notch, stealing the #2 position from my Uncle Bob. Both Paul Spooner and Jocco slipped out of the top five, only to be replaced by Kate C. and my dad.
Now, let’s see which of you really love me in 2014.
And… they’re off,
