Subject: overstepping ‘fan’ boundaries
Been a huge fan of your site for years and years – ever since the beginning, really, but never had an idea to share w/you until now.
If you’re ever hurtin’ for ideas re: your “What’s Happening” series, here’s some food for thought: Whatever happened to “The Waterbed”? When I was a kid (born 1969) waterbeds had this ‘mystique’ and seemed all luxurious. And of course there were at least two kinds that I was aware of — the ‘bladder’ — which as a kid seems extra cool, but as an adult would probably suck, and the “internal tube” kind which offered the ‘benefit’ of a waterbed w/out the seasickness.
I dunno – seems like there might be some potential there. Seemed like everyone either had, or wanted to have a waterbed, but now, they are nowhere to be found. I don’t even see them advertised on the cheesey furniture store sites anymore!
Take care man, keep up the good work!

I’ve entered the Quark Expeditions, “Blog Your Way to the North Pole” Contest with my entry titled “Santa’s Sleigh Needs a Flight Attendant.”
It’s a writing contest and the chosen entry with the most votes goes on a trip for two to the North Pole. I think it would be a wonderful writing opportunity and a really great Chapter in the book I’m working on. I wonder if you could give me a bit of a shout out at “Oddtodd?”
Here is the link:
It’s a trip for two and if I win I have to ask somebody else to go. I’ve been thinking of who to bring that is a writer or would be able to somehow do something with the experience other than just take photos. I’ve been turning it over and around in my head and haven’t decided yet.
On the list is a friend who won “Biology Teacher of the year” and is going to the White House in a week to accept an award from Obama, another friend who works at the Cincinnati Zoo, or a media person of some sort. And you came to mind. As I said, I haven’t decided yet, but would this be something you’d consider?
This trip is not for the faint of heart. It’s a pretty rugged trip, but I think I’m up to it and I think you’d be fine. Would you consider it if I won? Just a thought yet, and I haven’t won yet, but you never know…
Thanks for any help you could give me, Todd.
I’m a huge fan of your website (in fact, years ago you posted one of my guest “strange tales“). And we exchanged a couple of emails but that was 7 years ago. The reason I’m writing now is that my first novel was recently published in North America & I was wondering if you’d like a free copy. My publisher has sent out copies to some high profile bloggers that usually review books, but I’d much rather have a posting from Odd Todd than from some blogger whose site I’ve never seen.
A little about The Three Fates of Henrik Nordmark — it’s a comedy about one man’s quest to become unique. There’s a chapter in which one of the characters writes an email to his entire company that reads “Dear Heartless Bastards….” It’s laugh out loud funny & edgy too…..
It’s a super quick read and I think you’d really enjoy it.
Please let me know & I’d be happy to send you a copy.
ps. you can read more about it on my site….

I know you area devoted listener, so am l.
Should be interesting to see what happens, huh?
My brother and I think of you every time we listen to this 80′s jam. Thought you might like to use it for one of your future “80′s Video of the Week” links.

It won’t let me post on the comment section but, whoever said dental floss is right. Old military trick.
I always replace all the buttons on my pants with dental floss. Never failed. Give it try. Also my mom got a dog that looks like Roscoe a couple weeks ago. He’s a spaz.

Subject: Circus Project INDULGE review
Someone told me you did a great review/blog about the Circus Project’s benefit show, INDULGE, on December 3, 2010, and I can’t seem to find it online anywhere!
Would you be so generous as to please send me a link or copy of the blog?
Thank you so much!!
