It’s finally here! My new, regular series for mental_floss – Strange States – has launched after months of writing behind the scenes. Every week I’m bringing readers stories about the unusual people, places, and things in each of the 50 states. So far I’ve written months worth of entries, so I’m well ahead of the game. But I’ve also had a request to focus on a few special states with multiple entries in the same week, so that should be fun, too.
Anyway, check out the first entry, Strange Alabama.
The latest episode of my one-man podcast, When You Hear This Sound, is up over at Bubble Pipe Network. I cover one of the strangest albums in my collection, The Amazing Adventures of Pac-Man, from Kid Stuff Records. It’s a trip, so I highly recommend you give it a spin!
I posted a review of Titan Books’ Elysium: The Art of the Film over at Top Hat Sasquatch this week. I was really impressed by it, so it’s worth picking up if you’re a fan of the film or concept art.
I had a blast putting together the latest episode of my new podcast, When You Hear This Sound. I barely remember Kojak, but I’m really glad I learned a little more about Telly Savalas and his most memorable role.
Check out the show over at Top Hat Sasquatch, complete with (terrible) pictures of the comic!
My first published article on mental_floss in quite some time hit the site recently. It wound up being the #4 story on the site for the week, so I’m happy with that.
Here’s hoping the weekly column I’ve been writing for the last few months will make its debut soon and I’ll be able to post more.
Until then, enjoy 11 Facts About 7-Eleven on 7/11!
