Without A Noise, Without My Pride, I Reach Out From The Inside

February 5, 2012

Channel Limbo , ep 001 – The Introduction

Good Afternoon Macketeers,

Today is a special day here on Eddie Mack Avenue, because as you can see, I’m actually shooting this edition using our new webcam. I say new, but it was actually purchased late last summer, for more money than we’d originally planned to spend. The moral of that story is, don’t buy computer equipment from store managers who clearly came up through sales, and not the tech department.

Now, the reason I didn’t start vlogging… is it called vlogging, or is that too hipster? Anyway, back in August, I had trouble getting the video software to install properly on my PC, and so the webcam stayed on my wife’s desk for the last half of last year. Recently, however, I had to reinstall Windows 7—loads of fun—so I decided to give the webcam another try, and lo and behold, here I am in DAZZLING, LIFELIKE colour. I say lifelike, but what I really mean is: just slightly less blotchy and bereft of life as your average apocalyptic zombie.

For those of you just joining us, my name is Lee, and I’m a writer, artist and musician who lives in Canada with my wife and two cats, whom you may see wandering in and out of view in the background as I talk. For those of you who aren’t local, this is one of those rare spots in Canada that has no snow at this time. For those of you watching from European countries that aren’t used to getting lots of snow, I apologize. It seems there was a mix up in deliveries, and you got the bulk of our winter. Pretty sure that’s my bad.

In this blog, I tend to talk about my work in a roundabout sort of way, as well as discussing MUSIC, MOVIES, TELEVISION and BOOKS that I love. I occasionally stumble across stuff that sends me off on a rant, which will sometimes wind up here as well. In the main, I write fiction, design commercial graphics and comic illustrations, write and record my own songs, and I write the occasional review for albums, video games, TV show, or movie, I recently enjoyed. If you think you’d like me to, I might even start vidding and posting those reviews here regularly.

Now, I need to apologize, because I’ve been up since about 5:30 AM, which isn’t the earliest I’ve been up in recent times, but nevertheless, I am pretty tired and barely suppressing yawns, so I’m going to cut this short. I’d like to mention that I plan on writing a couple of new reviews after I sign off, which I may post later today, depending on the conjunction of stars and the movements in the spirit world. I’m also considering whether to read a small excerpt from one of my recent ebooks. If there are any topics, stories or answers to questions you’d be interested in seeing me talk about, please leave a comment below.

Tomorrow I should be back with a real topic—probably to talk about the BBC TV serial we watched last night, Tipping The Velvet—and I’ll be including the transcript of this edition of Channel Limbo on the Eddie Mack Avenue wordpress blog, which you should find the link to in the caption box below, if I managed to figure out how to fill in a caption box properly.

Thank you for joining me, and I hope you’ll come back again soon.

This is your Uncle Eddie, signing off.
