Publication: Soap Opera Digest

My humor piece "Soap Opera Digest" appears in the new issue of Dragnet Magazine. Drop by and give it a read -- and help spread the word if you like. They have a great sense of fun and design which makes for an enjoyable little package suitable for tablet readers or mobiles as well as your standard issue 'computer' thingamajig. The trailer is good silly fun.

Ah, me. I have colleagues who are very proud of this craft in earnest, and have no real reason to be. But they rarely deal in the shaved pussy (or perhaps moggie), as they don't cover the Cinemax soaps (nor Animal Planet).

Cheers!

It takes a sick ape mind to think of shaving a cat.

Hmph. And, snrk.

Jeez, Kipper -- I leave you alone for an hour...!

Todd, back when I read the newspaper on paper, I used to be fascinated by the soap opera digests and the disjointed narratives they offered. Soaps have traditionally been a great source of income, so I do not turn my nose up at them.

I have watched some soap with enjoyment, the Henry Slesar-driven crime soap THE EDGE OF NIGHT and the original DARK SHADOWS, for example, way back when. That didn't make particularly the one arrogant jackass was particularly thinking of, among several people who were writing synopses, any more justified in his self-appraisal, however. Hell, I wrote up (boiled down) an EASTENDERS or so for a database.

To say nothing of MARY HARTMAN, MH and ALL THAT GLITTERS, before they ran out of steam.

K. A. Laity said...

Indeed, indeed -- so, have you gone and read my two and a half page piece?

Todd Mason said...

Well, yes, hence the sophomoric mentions of the shorn feline. (You'll have to answer what you face at home on your own...)

This has been the first day that I didn't get barraged by non-stop crying for the better part of the day, even after I ran out on some errands. Maybe it's just too hot to expend the effort.
