it is valentine’s day, my friends, but there is not only love in the air…there is also the smell of morning glories. the comic. not the flower. it’s too cold to grow those right now. either way, issue 37 comes out this week, and that means another morning glories tinychat! for anyone unfamiliar, each month when a new issue of mg comes out a bunch of us get together in a chat to discuss what we’ve just read, see if we can figure anything out, and throw around things about the book in general. on top of that, usually the guys who work on the book- nick, joe, matt and sometimes others- pop in too! it’s gotten big enough that we’re on the back of the book now, which is definitely something. it’s a ton of fun and we’re always open to new people.
the chat for #37 is going to be on 2/19 from 8:13 to 11:13 PM EST at this tinychat. before you come in, though, we have a few simple ground rules to cover. first off, be nice (which does not need to be explained), be mature (don’t spam caps lock or yell at people who don’t share your opinion! please!) and don’t use the chatroom outside of the scheduled time. whoever is running the chat each month is the only moderator we have, and we don’t want people clowning around or spambots lurking when we can’t see it. also: the chat is all text, no video.
this month’s chat is going to be a little special, actually: i am going to be overseas for all of next week, and thus maria/tumblr user caseyballvins is going to be running the chat! three cheers for her. this also means i am creating another special rule, that rule being “be nice to maria or we will sacrifice you to david”. she’s cool, give her props for volunteering to run this thing.
this week’s issue focuses on akiko the cutieface and evidently involves ballet. sounds mysterious enough. feel free to stop in and have a great time!
hey, is anyone up for running the chat for mg #37 in a few weeks?
i run the tinychat every month for you guys who don’t know (it’s on the back of the issues now i think), but #37’s listed as coming out on the 19th and i’ll be gone then. like, gone gone! probably not with a full internet…
