I mostly just wanted an excuse to post this video. But anyway, just in case anything weird happens over the next few days, I wanted to let anyone out there who's following me know that I'm going to be breaking free moving from the WordPress.com server to a self-hosted one...well, probably sometime this week.
I don't think there should be any problems; I think I'll be able to transfer followers without too much problem, and if you read the blog from the website, the domain isn't changing. I...think it will still show up in your reader? I'll still be using a WordPress site, anyway, so hopefully there won't be any hiccups along the way.
If you're not reading this in some sort of feed and have actually ventured to the blog itself, you might notice some changes!
Firstly, I've purchased a proper domain. I've also changed the theme (not in and of itself a big deal), added background and header images, and am going to be making some other post-oriented changes as well. I've imported my book log from Tumblr (the year's half over and despite a promising first couple of months, life got the best of me, so there's that to add to my to-do list), and I'll likely be categorizing some other media-related items and adding those to the main menu as well.
I have a lot going on right now, but I really do plan to utilize this thing--I'm hoping that the shelling out of cold, hard cash will motivate me to do that.
Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d'Art, Christopher Moore
Absolutely nothing is sacred to Christopher Moore. The phenomenally popular, New York Times bestselling satirist whom the Atlanta Journal-Constitution calls, “Stephen King with a whoopee cushion and a double-espresso imagination” has already lampooned Shakespeare, San Francisco vampires, marine biologists, Death…even Jesus Christ and Santa Claus! Now, in his latest masterpiece, Sacré Bleu, the immortal Moore takes on the Great French Masters. A magnificent “Comedy d’Art” from the author of Lamb, Fool, and Bite Me, Moore’s Sacré Bleu is part mystery, part history (sort of), part love story, and wholly hilarious as it follows a young baker-painter as he joins the dapper Henri Toulouse-Lautrec on a quest to unravel the mystery behind the supposed “suicide” of Vincent van Gogh.
