All 'Memphis Beat' Needs to Become a Good Show

  1. new writers who are also good writers
  2. for the actors to spend time in Memphis to hear what we really sound like (hint: not like people in Savannah and not like people in New Orleans)
  3. to film here
Easy peasy.

While perusing my favorite blogs yesterday I came across three with a similar theme: Camper-like structures!

1. First was this cute little office pod on Poppytalk. I think every writer I know needs one of these.

2. Next was a video on Unclutterer about a family of 3 who live in a 320 square-foot house! It's like a camper, only it doesn't go anywhere. (I don't know how to post a video so this is a screen shot. Also, I watched the video without sound, so if the lady cusses through the whole thing don't say I didn't warn you.)

3. And last were actual campers, also from Poppytalk. I didn't realize at first that this and the office pod were from Poppytalk. She must be on a camper kick. She's got some great examples of old and new campers on that post - take a look!

Found List: Words New York Magazine Doesn't Say

Saw this on A Cup of Jo:
When Kurt Andersen took over as editor of New York Magazine, he wrote a list of all the words he found annoying and told his staff not to use them during his tenure.  
I'm sure I have my own similar list of annoying words up in my head somewhere. Unfortunately, I cannot order anyone to not use them.

Testing: Posting from Email

Why it will be cool if posting from email works:
  1. I can post. From email.
  2. I can post lists as I think of them! Imagine the possibilities!
  3. I can post during the day without really posting from work. (wink!)
