The other day, I received the following email:
“My new friend,
I am well pleased to contact you after going through your profile on my search for genuine relationship. I will like to be your good friend, please contact me.
I am waiting for your reply soon,
Well, hot damn. I passed the message along to Baron Destructo who, coincidentally, has been playing matchmaker for a buddy of his. The Baron wrote back:
“Dearest Forlorn Human Wretch,
I am contacting you on behalf of an ally and fellow supercriminal who, not unlike yourself, has reached that point in life where he is no longer desirable to the opposite sex and thus seeks to cut his losses by settling down. In his search for a meaningful relationship, Glaxnor the Miscreant has tried various introduction services such as vdate (The Leading Villains Single Network!), eDisharmony, and RateMyRack – all to no avail. To date, he has yet to find his soulmate, that special someone with whom he can share in life’s joys: parenthood, long walks on the beach, the destruction of enemy forces. Could you be that someone?
Glaxnor is 8 foot 5, well-built, and considered not unhandsome by those who know him. Many have described him as an adorable mutant human-pitbull hybrid and a big puppy at heart. A big homicidal temperamental puppy. He is shy, kindhearted (often displaying great sensitivity in his rapid dismemberment of victims), is far from the stupidest member of our League of Aliens and Mutants for Evil (that distinction, of course, belongs to The Pummeler), and possesses of a singular sense of humor. His laugh is infectious. As are his various infections. Glaxnor’s interests include ballroom dancing, wholesale slaughter, and macramé. One day, he will make one lucky psychotic highly insecure woman a very happy wife. Could that psychotic highly insecure woman be you?
Glaxnor is for real. UB2.
Feel free to contact:

Hey, thanks to everyone who has been weighing in with their suggestions of underrated and underappreciated authors for January’s Book of the Month Club. However, I do feel the need to point out that Stephanie Meyer is neither. I’m looking for some off-the-radar selections here. Let‘s hear ‘em.
Speaking of the Book Club – finish up The Missing and start thinking up some questions for the author because Sarah Langan is rarin’ to go.
Hey, amid all of the recent excitement, I failed to mention two past visits by some old friends. The first was from a guy I used to know in Montreal who used to go by the name Tean but, apparently, now goes by Schrecker (Help me out. Is that Ukranian?). He dropped by the production offices with his band, The Gods of Now. The Bridge Studios was just one stop on their cross-country tour and, I’m sure, the highlight as they got to visit set AND meet the lovely Rachel Luttrell. Read all about it and check out the pics here:
