Random Thought! “I guess that autumn / Gets you remembering / And the smallest things / Just make you cry.” It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! Finally, two days off in a row! It’s been too long! It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! Seven days of work in a row… I can die now? It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thoughts! It’s a regular edition this week. So, be happy! Or not. I don’t know what you people want. It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! I like theme weeks. This time, it will be an all Fear Itself edition to go with my Random Siege Thoughts post that I did before that event ended. It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! I promised a half-assed edition and a half-assed edition is what you’re going to get! It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! I worked Monday and Tuesday this week (instead of Wednesday and Friday… plus the weekends), so this got delayed a couple of days. But, it’s finally Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! I wish Lays in Canada would learn that their new Old-Fashioned Bar-B-Q flavour of chips is far superior to that crap they have forced on the public as Bar-B-Q. It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! If it’s a light week, it’s only because I spent too much time this morning watching Weird Al videos on Youtube. It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! If the link is going to be automatically shortened, why do all of the characters count towards the final total, Twitter? It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! Two weeks of this and I’m already ready for another hiatus… I kid, I kid! It’s random thoughts time! Get excited!
Random Thought! Of course, now I’m going to demand $500 for charity once a year, you know. It’s Random Thoughts time! Get excited!
The final tally for money raised for the Hero Initiative is a stunning $535, boosted by my promise to revive Random Thoughts here on Comics Should be Good if the total reached $500. I would like to thank the following people for their donations: p0w, Raymond Conlon, Alec Berry, Dan Billings, Tim Callahan, Sandy Nevett, Andrew Doyle, Mario McKellop, Lee Merowitz, PerfectDru, Eric Newsom, Brendan Wright, Joshua Schroeder, Rainer Hoermann, Greg Schueller, Brian Estep, James Leech, Brian Cronin, and Joseph Macaluso. This is, by far, the most money raised in any of my Blogathons and I’m extremely grateful to those who donated and those who lent their moral support.
Random Thoughts will return Tuesday at 4:45 pm.
Well, the deadline came and went this morning, and the goal of $500 for the Hero Initiative as part of my Blogathon and with the promise of the return of Random Thoughts was not met. But, because Brian so wants to see the feature return, he’s talked me into extending the deadline until Friday evening (let’s say around 10pm EST). Basically, I did a 24-hour Blogathon for the Hero Initiative last week and, because I’m greedy for charity, I tried to sweeten the pot by adding the promise of Random Thoughts’s return should the total donations reach $500 (they were at $350 at the time). Since I made that promise/offer, I did receive some more donations, but we’re still around $70 away from the goal. If you want to save Random Thoughts, sponsor the Blogathon, and contribute to a good cause, you can do so in a variety of ways:
When you do, let me know at chevett13[AT]yahoo[DOT]ca so I can keep track of the total raised and of who to thank. And if that’s not enough, Brian went to bat for all of you wonderful Comics Should be Good readers and it would be a shame to let him down, right?
The Blogathon on Monday was a big success. The archive post of the entire thing is up for easy access and $349.99 was raised for the Hero Initiative. That’s the most raised in one of my Blogathons to date. But, I think we can do better. As I always do, I’ve left the sponsorship/donation window open for a week and I wanted to make an offer here. Ever since I stopped doing my weekly Random Thoughts here on Comics Should be Good, I’ve been told how much people miss those posts and how much they want to start doing them again. Well, here’s the deal: if the total amount raised as part of the Blogathon hits $500 by 9am EST Tuesday morning (August 23), then, that day, Random Thoughts returns to this blog — and will continue each and every week. Considering only ten people donating raised $349.99, I’m pretty sure the dozens, hundreds, thousands, how ever many people read this blog and love comics can raise another $150 for a fantastic cause and to get me thinking randomly every week again. I know not everyone can afford a lot and that’s fine. It doesn’t take a lot. Five bucks would make my day as far as a donation goes. And, five dollar donations can add up quickly. Giving money to the Hero Initiative is easy and they offer a variety of ways of helping them out:
If you do give, just let me know via e-mail (chevett13[AT]yahoo[DOT]ca) so I can keep track and give you the proper thanks. Like I said, I’d love to crack the $500 mark and, if that happens by 9am EST Tuesday, Random Thoughts returns at its usual time of 4:45pm that day — and every Tuesday that follows. I’m not sure what else I can do to make this a better deal: there’s 49 posts written in 24 hours, the promise of the return of a weekly feature that people seem to enjoy a lot, and a fantastic cause that deserves your support even without those other things.
