Now that all FIVE of the 2nd String Character Hall of Fame Nominees have been introduced one-by-one, I’ve set up the voting box and you can vote for your favorite. Just check it out in the right hand side bar (you will have to scroll down past the “Saloon” and “Fanatical Hosting“).

BACK TO BASICS … OR UPSETING MR. HEINTJES AGAIN.
What with the trifecta of nicotine withdrawal, calorie counting and excess exercise, I’ve been ignoring my responsibilities to my fanatic fan base. I’ve not made myself available as the stunning font of knowledge through the regular program we (how many of me are there?) like to call “Ask The Dwo.” Okay … okay … everyone stop laughing.
The reason that this upsets my longtime friend Tom Heintjes is two-fold. First he’s responsible for my DWO nickname (yeah, you pronounce it like it was a word … you say du-woh … it doesn’t rhyme with “two”) so he thinks he retains some control over its use. Second he disapproves of “the Dwo,” it is his opinion that my nickname should be “dwo” without the “the.”
Now that I’ve completely bored everyone who stopped by to read about funny books, let me say this to Mr. Heintjes. Get Over It.
None of this changes the goal of this humble program. Ask me a question. Any question. I’ll attempt to answer it. I can’t guarantee that you’ll like the answer. So put on your thinking caps. And if you’re stumped for ideas, you can always check out the BACKGROUND page for ideas. I’ve got an answering “Ask The DWO” post coming up next week. Continue reading →

THE 2ND STRING CHARACTER HALL OF FAME NOMINATIONS CONTINUE
We’re close to the end of the month, so it is time to turn our attention to the not-nearly-equitable and only vaguely fair contest I’m calling the 2nd String Character Hall of Fame. I take the nominations that I get in the various comments section or sent to me via e-mail, especially on the page set aside for the contest. Then I take the names, write the names on little slips of paper and throw them into an old bright orange Tampa Bay Buccaneers stocking cap.
