I signed up for a Flash class this Spring at the local community college with the hopes that The Rots site can be done completely in it. I used Dreamweaver and HTML and JavaScript for my other two sites, but the way I see The Rots site coming together can only be done in Flash.

I've already bought the domain name (, but there isn't anything up yet. Once I put this site together and get it uploaded, that link is going to look pretty good.

That's the plan anyway.

Rots show

Well, The Rots show at DV8 in Greensburg, PA, is finished. Thanks to everybody who made it out and left the great comments in my book. In case you missed it, here's the image from the postcard.

I've started a catalog of all the things we had available at the show, and I'm hoping to have that available in a few months. In case you're wondering, here's a short list of some of the merchandise:
  • t-shirts
  • greeting cards
  • note cards
  • postcards
  • bookmarks
  • journals
  • calendars
I'm still working on the logistics of printing and distribution, so I'm not sure how soon all this will get up and running. The sooner the better, I think!

I took my biggest step in becoming legitimate today. I filled out a trademark application for "The Rots". A little scary, especially with the money involved. It would be nice to be sure this whole adventure is going to stick around for a while! But I did it, and now I just wait for the lawyers in D.C. to give me the "thumbs up" or feed me to the lions.

Either way, they keep the money!
