On July 1st, 2008, Rish and I posted our very first installment of the Dunestef Audio Fiction Magazine. We've been through an awful lot since those days. Lots of ups and downs. Sometimes ups outnumber the downs, but not in Nottingham.
This summer will mark the 10th anniversary of that first podcast. It's hard to believe that so much time has passed. We've hit various milestones over the years, like 100 episodes and the like, but for the most part, we haven't done anything celebratory for any of those big accomplishments (wait, I think that might not be the right word. Is there a word for not giving up even though you totally should have?). But Rish had an idea that for our 10th anniversary, we could do some kind of an AMA episode. If you're not hip with the jargon, that stands for Ask Me Anything.
So, if you've ever wondered something about Big and Rish, about the Dunesteef, about that time when Rish took his pants off in front of Ryan Reynolds, or any other subject, throw it in an email to editor at dunesteef dot com, or reply in the comments, or put it on the forum, and we'll coagulate all those comments...wait I think that's the wrong word again, but eff it, I'm going with it...and we'll answer them on our big anniversary show. Thanks in advance for participating.
Also, am I crazy or is the text on this thing crooked slightly?

That's a round about excuse for why the Saturday meme is arriving at 10pm instead of 10am as would be preferable.
More author quotes from my nephew. This time he's a slightly less respected author...at least by me.

I went on a trip out to New Orleans. It was a nice vacation except for one big problem that I had...a little bit of an accident out on the bayou. Take a watch and hear the story.

I think he's got a Full House problem. First he wants to do a podcast dedicated to the show (which sadly would surely get more listeners than anything else we do), and not he's doing memes of Mary Kate and Ashley. Sheesh.

Get ready everybody, because this shit just got real. He's upping his game...or something.
Here's the first new meme of the upped game:
I guess I'll let you decide if his game has been upped or not. Then again, this meme could be left over from before. The upping could still be in the offing.

Then, a while later, after the phone was cool, I tried to review the recording. There was a thumbnail for it, but when I clicked, it wouldn’t load. Now there’s not even a thumbnail anymore.
I think the file must have gotten corrupted because of the heat. I’ll check it on my computer when I get home tonight, but I’m guessing it’s probably completely lost. The hot sun shining in through the windshield was too much.
Maybe I need to do all my Anklecasts at night instead. I guess I could try that on my way home tonight.
This is a scrap metal recycling yard near my house. Someone got themselves a can of red paint, and altered the sign on the outside wall.
But now he's back, and better than ever! Here's today's meme.
I think this meme might be more about talking rather than writing, but it still works. Sometimes it's really hard to get any writing done with kids. That's why I usually write late at night when they're all asleep.

Of course Big will write today.

Having a winning sports team in town helps generate some revenue for TV stations a bit (though not nearly as much as those who want you to buy them a new stadium with their taxes want you to think), so my station decided that we would do an opening day party for the staff, and they wanted us to wear our favorite Astros gear. Here's what I wore:
Sorry, my selfie skills suck.
Now, you might be asking yourself what the hell this Marvel Comics shirt has to do with the Astros. Well, tell me there isn't a likeness to this awesome throwback:
Wait, while that's funny, it's not particularly encouraging for writing. So, let's give our friend the Dos Equis schill a chance to actually encourage you:
All right. I guess that wasn't terrible. Stay writing, my friends.

Here, they had a similar egg hunt, but there were dozens of other activities on top of that. There was free popcorn and snowcones, face painting, balloon animals, bouncy houses, a thing they called bubble soccer:
Though they never bothered with the soccer part, they just had the kids run around and bash into each other in the bubbles...
Then the particularly Texan thing they had, a mechanical bull for the kids to ride:
They also had a tiny little baby bouncy house there:
I thought that was pretty cute.
They had food trucks there for anyone who wanted some food. I thought it was particularly funny the name of this truck:
Because this whole event was put on by a local church.
