FRIENDS YOU CAN RIDE ON – Links List

Here are links to some specific things mentioned in my book FRIENDS YOU CAN RIDE ON!

THE GENRE-FICTION GENERATOR

A kind Marksman named Nebu constructed an automated version of Wondermark #554 — The Electro-Plasmic Hydrocephalic Genre-Fiction Generator 2000!

Visit this link as many times as you like to generate a completely novel, utterly un-derivative piece of genre fiction each and every time. Guaranteed!

THE LITTLEST BUTT

I have been honored to see the fine masterpiece, the literary juggernaut, of “The Littlest Butt” be set to ACTUAL MUSIC several times.

First, by Max Martin, who even added his own extra verses:

Then, by Adam Proctor, and also, by Lusipurr (MP3 embeds in this earlier post). Quite different renditions but ALL PERFECTLY LOVELY BUTTMUSIK.

And finally, a KINETIC TYPE rendition by Matt Francis:

NARRATIONS BY PROZD

Voice actor SungWon Cho has a series on Tumblr of audio performances of comic strips!

Here are the Wondermark strips he has narrated.

(BONUS LINK: Another narrated Wondermark by Take Walker!)

THE HANNUKAH DUCK

A character posits the existence of the “Hanukkah duck,” who quacks you a puzzle, as a way of filling out the canon of Hanukkah traditions relative to Christmas.

Soon after that comic was posted, readers Keith Ammann and Cantor Yakov Hadash wrote and performed a Yiddish song about said Hanukkah Duck.

Die Katschke Chaneke / The Chanukah Duck

NARRATOR VOICE

Based on this comic — for your listening pleasure.

(More narration. Here, too.)

PLAIN LANGUAGE INTERVIEW

In 2010 I was pleased to be on NPR’s Morning Edition (audio of the segment is available here).

Along with Dr. Annetta Cheek from the Center for Plain Language, I discussed the Center’s ClearMark and WonderMark awards, which praise clear (and lambast confusing) business communication.
