This is gonna be a news update to remember. Not one, but two totally boss and cool things happened over the last week. Both of them milestones. Lets get into it before I get all maudlin and start crying tears of joy into my beer about our supporters (that comes later).
First up, we are chuffed to bits to announce the addition of two new authors to the House of Paincakes' Peebody Award and Pewlitzer Prize winning team:
Brent (of Strictly Average fame) - He's the hardest working man in blog-business and is probably just one more coke-fueled bender away from trying to storm into the HoP offices with a gun. Thank god we don't actually have offices. In all seriousness, Brent has been a big supporter of our efforts and its time we recognized that. He already has some new stuff in the works so be on the lookout for some uncensored Brent.
I'd say more, but we all know that Brent is two things: a damn fine whore and a good buddy.
Loquacious (of burgeoning World of Wonder fame) - We've tapped her to add some pizazz to the content desert that is the weekend on the HoP. You may have seen her inaugural post this past Sunday and if you haven't then what the hell are you waiting for? I'll let her say a few words:
I'm Loquacious. [Hey! I promise I'll be quick.] I'm a wife & mom, and I'm one of those "unicorns"- a lady who games.I came into it honestly- my dad got me into gaming when I was about 12. I'm married to TheDude (also a gamer) and my teenage kids game as well. I'll be sharing some of my "special brand of crazy" with you, on topics both silly and serious.
[What? My time is up? I just got started!]
They're asking me to keep it short. I get to talk as much as I want on Sundays, though...
So welcome aboard guys!
Now, our new additions to the blog rolls this past week were a bit sparse. But it doesn't matter. We've hit 100 members. Fuck. Yeah.
Hulksmash threw his hat in the ring lat Friday and submitted his blog - Hulksmash's Homeplace - to our humble rolls.
I'm having a hard time properly expressing how we feel about this. We about as pumped as two human's can be without actually being ninjas.
From the bottom of our black hearts, thanks to everyone who's helped us get this far - to all the contributors, supporters, members, commentors and readers: the HoP wouldn't even exist if it weren't for you.
