Vega$: Into the Sunset I Will Ride

February 23rd, 2014 | Posted by Philip J Reed in alf | Meta | personal | the lost worlds of power

New Vegas

Well, I’m off to sunny Las Vegas, where the wine flows like prostitutes, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve asked a few talented honchos to fill in for me while I’m gone, so Noiseless Chatter won’t be going dead, and you should still check back, because these guys know more than I do, and one of them wants to talk about math or something.

You should follow my new-ish Twitter feed if you aren’t already doing so…I’ll try to keep posting things there and sending pictures and stuff because hot damn, baby, I have always wanted to go to Vegas and this is going to be GREAT. I heard there’s a neon light there somewhere and I’d really like to see it.

There will still be a new ALF review on Thursday, but I won’t be around to fix all the typos I missed before it went live. There shouldn’t be too much of a drop off in activity here, mainly because I never post all that much in the first place. Yes, it’s now that my laziness will truly pay off.

Also, regarding The Lost Worlds of Power: as I’ve mentioned, we got…well, let’s just say we got a lot more in the way of submissions than we expected. Originally I had wanted to reply to everybody by the end of this month…but that’s not going to happen. I’m only about 1/3 of the way through them, but I’m hoping I can pick up the pace a bit in March and be done before April. I apologize for the delay, and I know everybody’s excited to hear the results and which pieces they can look forward to reading in the finished anthology, but I want to make sure I take the time to evaluate every submission thoroughly and respectfully, so your patience is appreciated!

Anyway, I’ve got a travel toothbrush, prescription sunglasses and a bag full of Hawaiian shirts. I’ll see you in just over a week.

    “Only two types of guys can wear Hawaiian shirts. Gay guys and big, fat party animals. And he doesn’t look like a big, fat party animal to me!”

    Have fun, you rambunctious scallywag!

    Man, I just got back from Vegas last night. I was there for my brother’s wedding and no one in the party was a big gambler so that part of the city was wasted on us. Otherwise it’s still pretty fun. The movies make it seem like it’s the last days of Rome but in reality there are so many families there. I think my favourite part of my visit was our excursion to a gun range, especially the AK-47 I apparently had a proficiency for. Have fun over there!

    It’s quite a town. Sadly though I hear the Gameworks arcade on the east side of the Strip near New York New York has shut down. Where you can play arcade games when you’re drunk at 2 a.m. now, I have no idea.

    Danke everyone! Jetting out in the morning…I have three guest posts scheduled to go up in my absence, ALF Thursday is locked and loaded, and I’ll be back to actively ignoring this site again next week!

    Ciao for now!
