Writer Paul Davidson has a book coming out on May 4. Paul is one of those people who is so funny when you talk to them, you wonder if you could just nod through the conversation and let him go. If he graces Pinky's Paperhaus, I'll try this tactic, even though nodding doesn't work well on radio.
So Paul's book is called The Lost Blogs: from Jesus to Jim Morrison; it's the imagined blogs of personages who were famous and/or mythical before the advent of blogging (poor bastards). Included are Abe Lincoln, Alexander the Great, and, of course, Jesus:
on his latest project via his Carpentry Weblog:
"With my water or wine rack you can store both satisfying thirst quenchers in one place and never find yourself deficient of either. For what one would do if they only had water but wanted wine? Nothing! You'd be stuck without a solution! This is just why this project is so useful.
Any thoughts on this project would be fully appreciated, as it's just a little something I've started to work on, and am currently not sure how many people will find such an item useful...
Anyway, Fans of Paul (who have advisedly not taken the moniker FoP) are doing a little grassroots promoting. At Kevin Apgar's suggestion, 40+ people are faux-blogging as historical figures this week. The fun parts: nobody will reveal who they're blogging as until Friday (although they're dropping hints), none of these characters appear in the book, and some may be fictional close-to-famous characters who blog about their memorable buddy.
So far I can't really tell who anyone is writing as, but it's probably better that way.
