Candid interview with Al Gore about AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH

Although I realize this blog has become increasingly more political than sexual of late, I couldn't resist posting this wonderful interview with Al Gore about his enlightening film, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH. If you haven't seen the movie, I really urge you to do so, especially if you have any doubts about global warming.

Gavel in one hand....

This judge in Oklahoma might have been better off cruising the Internet for porn after hours rather than whacking off behind the bench. But hey, who am I to judge a good multi-tasker?

Got a Web site?

One of Custom Erotica Source's illustrators, Gradiva, has just published a book about -- of all things -- Search Engine Optimization! She did a chapter on SEO for adult sites, and I'm quoted in the book! She sent me a copy of it, and I've been reading it. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that there's some great advice in it! If you've got a Web site, you ought to check this book out. Gradiva and co-author Jennifer Grappone present what would normally be an insufferably dry and boring topic and make it readable and informative. Bravo, Gradiva!

Ann Coulter vs. Adolf Hitler

Click on the subject line above to take a quiz that will not only test your knowledge of America's biggest hate monger but the world's most famous ethnic cleanser.

I keep saying I'm going to ignore this woman in the hopes that she'll eventually shut up and go away, but when a friend shared this quiz with me, I couldn't resist. See how you score! I got a 12.

Garrison Keilor is simply brilliant

I love his essay about the ineptitude of the current administration.

When is an erotic story a tax deduction?

It isn't often that you can get the erotic fiction you want *and* give to
a good cause. But now, thanks to a very special auction that ends on June
16, you can bid on the opportunity to do just that.

You've seen me promote the work of author M.J. Rose on many occasions --
but this time is unlike any other. M.J.'s most recent book, LYING IN BED, is an erotic romance that casts the main character as a writer of love letters for clients who have trouble communicating desire. Being in a similar situation, I identified closely with this character and thought it would be fitting for M.J. Rose to offer customized work of her own through Custom Erotica Source to one lucky recipient.

M.J. Rose insisted, however, that the proceeds for her labor go to her favorite charity, Reading is Fundamental. So, the winning bid on the charity auction at Ebay will benefit RIF.

Talk about a guilt-free fantasy! Get a 2,000-word story from a writer who's proven over and over that she know how to weave an intelligent, sexy tale -- and give to a worthy cause in the process. Opportunities like this are rare indeed. You can actually get a tax write-off for getting turned on!

Bidding has already begun and ends on June 16. Do yourself and Reading is Fundamental a giant favor and place your bid today for a 2,000-word story
by M.J. Rose.
