    New avatars!

  2. Matthew Lickona says

    I knew it was only a matter of time before you started grumping about your lack of a neck.

      Shouldn’t an enlarged duplicate of Comrade Bullhorn’s speech-bubble be emerging from the big end of the megaphone?

      • Jonathan Potter says

        It’s coming from the Chomsky black-box area of his frontal cortex. There would actually need to be a new frame with the enlarged text, to show the time sequence from brain to sound waves.

    • Jonathan Potter says

      I’m not grumping. Although I do think Mitsui poked more fun at you and me than he did with the others. My theory is it’s because he tuned into the fact that we’re the token liberals of the Kollektiv.

      • Wha? You think I LIKE looking like this? My wife has to get out the garden rake every morning just to find a part…



        p.s. It’s about time you liberals found yourselves being regarded as a token SOMEWHERE!

      • I happily admit that I have the most flattering avatar by far. I regret not taking Matthew’s suggestion and using it as the author photo. Although I’m not sure what to do about the avatar generally, or rather I’m not sure what to do about the pseudonym. Get rid of it, and simply attach the avatar to my real name? Keep it for blog posting? (the little I do!) Get rid of the real name? (should have considered that more before I published the book)

      • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

        Potter’s not grumping; Lickona’s just projecting.

  3. We are the kollectiv.

  4. Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

    ‘The rest of you, get back to work!’

    From each according to his ability.

    ‘Kollektiv Writing Unit Brian Jobe is granted one week of bender privileges!’

    To each according to his need.

  5. All your books are belong to us.


  6. JOB is correct, and by the way, you didn’t write that.

    Hey Lickona, are those bubbles a feature of Adobe?

  7. Thanks! Bender has been postponed due to stomach flu, unfortunately. May I have an extension?
