Bulletpoint once-through of important information

This is a quick bulletpoint once-through of some important informational updates, changes and necessaries you should all be told:

#1. My email address has sorta changed. For a long time now I’ve been with Earthlink because they used to not suck. But now it’s common knowledge that they now suck and are Scientologists so I’ve switched to Gmail. My email address is now at normalbob@gmail.com.
Of course bob@normalbobsmith.com is still the same, but I’ve discovered if you’re replying to an old message from me, it gets routed through Earthlink and never gets to me. So yeah. That’s that.

#2. I’m considering discontinuing the quarterly Newsletter because Gmail really really discourages spamming of any sort (as well they should), and even though everyone on the list asked to be there, it’s still 1000′s of addresses and a Gmail account can’t tell the difference. My account was shut down for 24hrs after I sent one newsletter out. Then after some research I started getting convinced that because of spamming on the net bulk emailed newsletters are fast becoming outdated. And I DO NOT want to be a spammer or mistaken for one. I’m open to opinions and options on this matter because I’d love to keep it circulating.

#3. I am available for hire, and my freelance page has been updated with more of the exciting jobs I’ve been tooling over the last month or so. I’m reasonably priced, especially the more creative freedom I’m allowed. But I’m a completely docile worker bee if you insist on a dictatorship business relationship. I need money to live, and I work accordingly.

#4. I can’t stress enough how excited I am about the new Limited Collector’s Edition JDU, and I’m just bustin’ at the seams with the urge to spill my guts about the glorious beauty this set is beholding! Their delivery is still on schedule (the end of April) and all orders will be shipped out immediately upon their arrival to me. This set will also be accompanying me to the booth I’ve got at the 2010 Comic Con in NYC.  And if you’re not already I strongly suggest becoming a fan of Jesus Dress Up on Facebook.

#5. It might also be of interest that I am almost sold out of the Final Justice Jesus magnets. I will not be reprinting this same artwork ever again, instead I’ll be using art from the latest version for future printings. I’ve got 2 boxes left of the old, which is about 80 total sets, then after that they’ll never be seen again. You’ve hearby been notified.

How about a Personalized Dressup this Christmas?

Christmas is almost here, which means now’s the time for me to put out the DRESS UP YOUR LOVED ONES personal dressup game offer!

Having trouble thinking of something original, fun, useful and outrageous to get for someone you care about this Christmas? Well, nothing’s more off-the-wall than a personalized dress up game! And coincidentally they’re my specialty.

In the past I’ve done dressup games for girl’s boyfriends, people’s bosses, husbands & wives, even super discount ones just for fun! Does your father-in-law have a superhero he’s always wanted to be dressed up as? Do you have a girlfriend whose only chance of getting that $1,200 D&G purse is to have it drawn on a cartoon image of her? Well then, I’m the guy to call.

Email me and I’d be delighted to hear exactly what you had in mind and give you a reasonable quote. bob@normalbob.com

Make it the best Christmas EVER!!!

I’m sure you’ve been wondering what side project I’ve been working on that’s made site updates so few and far between lately. I’ve been assigned to a bulk of the labor on the The Quarter Guy’s site, working with him and a small crew on the “One Million Quarters in just One Month” project. And not surprisingly it’s turned out to be an even bigger task than expected. We’re both starting to think we may have gotten in way over our heads, which has accounted for all the high drama in front of the lens. But there’s no backing out now. Watch the video, then visit the site for details on how you can take part in the challenge.
