Back when the world was new and this blog was as well, we had a tradition. On Saturdays, there would be an open thread -- once a month, that thread would serve as a call for myths that need answering. Well, the open threads never got much traffic -- almost as if there wasn't a… Continue reading Open Myth Call: June 1-7
We're continuing the monthly tradition by soliciting the myths you want to see written. It's a lot like how on Mythbusters they solicit fan requests on the site, only on Mythbusters they solicit urban legends that the fans want to watch the team debunk while blowing things up and possibly being injured in the process,… Continue reading Weekends: The October Myth Call!
It is September, the most hellacious of months for those of us who work at secondary schools. This is why there was no Theftworld this weekend. I worked late every night last week, worked Saturday and worked Sunday, and it just takes too much to do. What this means for this coming week I'm not… Continue reading Weekend: exhaustion
It's another month, and that means it's time to put in your requests for myths for the Mythology of the Modern World series. Tomorrow's myth might be late, by the by, by which I mean "it's Labor Day. I can have some time off too, you know." But it should show up before the day… Continue reading The September Myth Call
I am in Ottawa this weekend, which doesn't stop you from sounding off! And here's the action topic! We're now in a situation where there are several multipart stories that are running here over Banter Lattes, no whip, with a shot of sugar free hazelnut. This includes some of the most popular stuff on the… Continue reading Weekends: Navigational!
Mrph. Not really awake in any sense of the word, but it's already the afternoon so I should be awake. So, we're back on inspiration, this week. Specifically, ambiance. When you're doing those things you do because you like to do things (write, paint, draw, Sudoku, whatever floats your boat and stimulates your mind), what… Continue reading Weekend: Environment! (Not about recycling or trees.)
Hey all! Sorry there was no weekend open mike last week. Nor yesterday, as I was working a 13 hour day on my day off. I know. You all feel just terrible for me, right? Well, I'm still working my way through the last open call for myth suggestions, but I enjoyed getting them so… Continue reading Weekends: The August Myth Call!
Still sick, still achy, still in Canada, and still keeping on keeping on. I hope you're all well and doing better than I am healthwise. (As for non-health? Hey, I'm with my fiancée. I'm golden. It's the weekend, and that means it's open mike day. And I thought today might be fun to discuss influences.… Continue reading Weekend: Influential!
I'm traveling right now, and am in fact with Wednesday. Which brings me to this week's sounding off! What's the favorite place you've traveled to? Was it a lake? A casino? A bar twelve feet from your squalid apartment? SPEAK!
It's Week Two of our Open Mike Weekends! Today, our topic is mythology. Obviously, our Myths of the Modern World series has kicked off and even seems to be popular, which is cool. And as we've established, the myths generally explain the answers to 'why' something is. Often small things, as the big questions are… Continue reading Weekends: What Myths Do You Want To Hear About?
We're still in beta, so there aren't that many people reading this yet. Here's where I'd give you a topic and you'd sound off, for those playing along at home. And because I suck, it's going out on Sunday. So if you're reading this on Monday, feel free to sound off anyway. So this will… Continue reading Weekend: Sound off!
