So Much for the Peter Gabriel Channel at Suite 101

Well, last week I blogged about the new Peter Gabriel Channel at the new Suite 101.  It was going to be a great new resource for Peter Gabriel fans. (Note: PG Channel is now off line.)

I wrote too soon.  Yesterday, the head honcho at Suite 101 has decided that the site will get rid of all channels and, in March, no longer will accept new articles.

It goes to show that when life gives you lemons, split 'em in half, douse them with hydrochloric acid and mash them into someone's face.

Happy Fuckin' Valentine's Day

So, it's Valentine's Day again and I'm alone again, naturally.  Well, except for me and my Peter Gabriel fantasies, anyway.  Or Peter Gabriel with Stephen Fry fantasies.  Hey, I'm more mature now, so the fantasies have to grow with me.

Here's one of the best songs ever written about love, "Crazy" by Willie Nelson, who originally was going to entitle the song "Stupid."  When it comes to love, crazy = stupid.

Happy (Early) Birthday to Peter Gabriel

Peter's 63rd birthday isn't until Wednesday, but I look to be incredibly busy that day, so I'm doing the annual PG birthday post now.  Peter and his family are currently on a trip round the world, but Peter is scheduled to do another TED talk next month, so he'll either need to be in California then or will Skype it in. 

Since there was a slow-down in PG news and in orders from my clients, I took the down time to start writing again over at the revamped Suite 101.  Articles devoted to (mostly) the same topic are now grouped under "Channels."  I am the Channel Manager for two channels so far -- The Guinea Pig Channel and the Peter Gabriel Channel.

Unfortunately, Suite 101 is still in beta testing (and has been since October 2012) so they are not allowing any new members to write articles or even comments as yet.  As a result, I am (blush) the only member of the two channels that I manage.  I have to write new material for Suite, so I cannot just cut & paste one of my numerous articles on either topic elsewhere on the Internet.

Right now, there are a whopping two (count 'em -- TWO) articles in The Peter Gabriel Channel.  My personal goal is to add an article a week to the channel, but since the pay is almost nonexistent, I may not be able to stick to this goal.  As of now, the two articles are:

Let 'em eat cake.
