A little pick me up

October 17, 2005 @ 10:16pm

I've been a little down. I had an idea for a book series about a magician/detective who gets murdered and comes back as a zombie. His first case: solving his own murder. He uses a combination of zombie toughness and sleight of hand to track down his killers and bring them to justice. I was going to call it Abra Cadaver. I was psyched, but then I found that the domain name was taken by a company that sells Halloween supplies and who wants to work on something when you can't get the dot com for it?

Yes, the Steve Miller song was on the radio when I had this idea. I was going to use that as the theme song when they turned Abra Cadaver into a TV series.

So I needed a little pick me up. Ben McMath directed me to Jonathan Coulton's cover of Baby Got Back (via BoingBoing dot net -- and I think you know how I feel about that). I've listened to it twice and I'm feeling way better now. The whole way through I'm picturing Amy Poehler rubbing up against Horatio Sanz on SNL's Weekend Update. Life is good.
