Lawn Painters

If you are reading this, you may be happy to know that I've decided to keep Deadpan Inc. going for at least a little while past the 100th episode. I've gotten some good advice regarding building an audience that I'm going to try. Let's see how it goes.

You'll notice I've started using YouTube for the embedded player -- it seems a bit more feeder friendly. Leave me a comment to let me know if this works better for you.

Speaking of feeds, have you subscribed to Deadpan Inc. yet? If you have, you can ignore the following. If you use a news aggregator and haven't subscribed, please do -- subscribers like you are what will keep DI alive.

If you don't use a feed reader (news aggregator), I highly recommend it. It's a much better way of keeping up with your favorite sites than a list of bookmarks. On one page you can see all the new content of your favorite sites, and you'll never have to check the individual site to see if there is new content. An aggregator like Google Reader is free and easy to set up. Just choose a user name and password (with the Google Reader, if you already have a Google account that's already done) and list the sites you want to subscribe to. Most semi-professional sites you visit now have feeds that work with these readers. Try it, you'll like it. And by subscribing to Deadpan Inc., you'll be doing your part to keep Brad and Lily alive.

LOL. Reread your comment. It's in there. You typed it, yet somehow missed it. I'll let you find it yourself.

I just discovered your blog today and have been laughing my ass off. Please don't stop anytime soon, I think you've got something truly original in a sea of blah/blah/blah.
