I can't say enough good things about Shmorky's art in the trilogy of Dreamytime Slumberland updates. The guy manages to make a fully animated cartoon every single week and then he finds time to illustrate some silly fairytales for me. Without his awesome pictures the articles would just be amusing, with them I think they're great. Unfortunately, they are so demanding of his time that it may be a long time before you see another one, but there have been three of them lately so you should have your fill by now.
Holy shit, a fucking book! I can't believe it! Being a published author has been a dream of mine since I was in the sixth grade writing a hideous science fiction novel on college rule paper with an aching hand. I fully recognize that I never would have had this opportunity had Rich not allowed me to work with him here at Something Awful all those years ago. For that and a lot of other things he has done for me through the years I'd like to extend a big "thank you!"
Please sign up for the mailing list if you have any interest in the book at all. I doubt this sort of niche product is going to make the best seller list, but I think once everyone gets a look at the sneak previews I'm going to be offering on the mailing list they will be a lot more excited about it.
A big thanks go out to the two artists working with me on the book. Mike Doscher has an incredible eye for technical detail, a great knowledge of the material, and a genuine interest in what we're doing. His mechanical illustrations provide the foundation on which Josh Hass, the color artist, is building a whole development of dream houses. The guy is amazing and if you sign up for the mailing list you'll all be seeing more of their work as we continue with the project.

The first phase of The Olive Garden's cyber rollout will introduce their Neverending Pneumatic Pasta Tube. This works on the same principal as bank drive-thru deposit tubes, but with unfrozen linguini and spaghetti.
It's still okay to like Ben Stiller, guys.
