I have one final letter to print before closing the thread on animation and anime that has been the subject of this journal, last Friday excepted, since last month.

I just did a radio show. A radio station called me and asked if I would be a guest on their show because someone there saw the article on me that appeared on the front page of a local paper. I don't know how this happened. All I did was take The Dialectizer down, and I found myself in USA Today. I put it back up, and I'm there again.

I'm shy, but I thrive in the spotlight. I've had an entertainer's mentality since I first started thinking about what I wanted to do with my life. But what happened here? I'm just a guy with a web site. I know it gets a decent amount of hits, but there's a difference between seeing a number and seeing what it indicates first hand. When did it become front page news locally and any news at all nationally?

I'm exaggerating a little for the sake of conveying my puzzlement over it all. RinkWorks has been in newspapers and on the radio before, in "best of the web" type features -- exciting every time -- but never with such a furor. It leaves me pleased but a little confused.

At any rate, if you haven't already been informed by my self-appointed internal PR person (thanks, Ellmyruh!), you can find some of the latest wave of articles here:
