Apologies everyone. The WordPress scheduler has been playing games with me the past three weeks.  I’m finally here… again.

Welcome to Jazz Age Wednesdays.  Summer is in full force and so is the diesel-punk train!  It’s great to see all you Sheiks and Shebas here at the station. 

You already know that this story is unplanned. I write it spontaneously as artist, illustrator, and “co-conspirator” Rob Goldstein sends new groups of “three things.”  However, that doesn’t mean that once I get a thing I don’t have to figure out how to evolve what exists of the plot to make it go with the thing.  (Did that make sense?)  This time it was taking me awhile to do that —…

Hullaba Lulu: Come See About Me

This week the avatar cast of Hullaba Lulu took a detour from Teagan’s universe.

Life in Ancient Egypt

In our parallel universe, an unnamed Egyptian Goddess and Tesla go clubbing in the future. They have returned to ancient Egypt from the early 1960’s where they are big fans of The Supremes.

They’re teaching the bots to sing Motown.

To all you Sheiks and Shebas in the USA, happy Independence Day!

Welcome back to Jazz Age Wednesdays. As you know, the illustrator and Sender of Things for this spontaneously written story is San Francisco artist, Rob Goldstein. (Click herefor the entire collection of Rob’s videos.)

Rob let me play with some of his dolls/avarars to make a July Fourth image. Creating it helped me de-stress a little.  Valentino is looking a bit miffed as Tesla puts an arm around Lulu and a saluting angel-bot, as fireworks light the sky behind a Tesla tower.

To my surprise, I woke up this morning knowing exactly what I should do. It’s a strange thing to have to write, but I got all the answers from a dream I had last night that contained my Grandmother. When I saw her last Christmas, she was showing the first signs of a strange illness that my mother didn’t want to talk about…
