- I have $500 to spend on dinner.
- That I would give you said $500 for anything, let alone "retiring the District Attorney campaign debt." Know what? If you don't have it, don't spend it, then you won't have to have these fund-raisers.
- That people will shell out five Franklins to watch MC Hammer chow down.

|Junkies, this week you get to pick what movie I will review on Friday, the day new movies are released.
Hopefully this is the beginning of a weekly event here, where Junkies decide if I get to see something fun, or if I am subjected to the latest goddamn Nicholas Sparks m-fing piece of romantic splooge.
So exercise your (rare) right in Siglerism, and vote!

Then, tomorrow is the final deadline for all the great cool incentives and entry into the prize drawing for NOCTURNAL goodies. Get THE REPORTER, name a GFL Tier Three team, join the founding members of the Ionath Krakens Booster Club.
Monday the NOCTURNAL Tour (west siieeeedd!) begins!
And finally, Tuesday, after years in the making, NOCTURNAL publishes in hardcover.
When we announced the 2012 tour schedule, there were shouts from Junkies all over the world: "When are you coming to [insert my hometown here]!!" "When will I get a chance to raise a glass with the FDØ?"
Well, Junkies, now's your chance. We've teamed up with the fine folks at Shindig Events and we'll have a virtual tour stop this Friday, March 30th, at 3:00pm PST. And no matter where in the world you are, here's your chance to hear Scott read from NOCTURNAL, ask questions in real time, chat with other attendees, and even talk face-to-face with Scott. That's right, no matter where you are, no matter how many other folks show up, we'll have room for you too!
What do you have to do? Easy:
- On Friday at 3:00pm PST (or whatever that works out to be in your town) head on over to: www.shindig.com/event/37-Scott-Sigler
- Enter your name and a valid email address. You'll also need a computer with a webcam and mic if you want to be seen and heard.
- If you've got a question, come ask during the Q&A, but keep in mind this is a public event.
- If you're so inclined, bring a beverage of your choice to enjoy during the Q&A. I'm pretty sure Scott will be ready to raise a glass by Friday afternoon.
That's it! The Shindig Events interface is super easy to use, and it'll only take a minute to learn how to ask a question (either by text or live on-camera), chat with other Junkies directly, or mingle with the assembled folk.
We know this won't work for everyone, and surely someone will say "but have have to [insert something not-as-cool here]. But it's a cool addition to the tour, and we'll have it recorded as well. We're excited, and we really hope to see you there. You don't know, there might even be a surprise or two.*
*Disclaimer: Surprise or two not guaranteed. The whole virtual tour is a surprise in itself!!!
Awwww yeah, another Junkie tat. This one belongs to my main man Todd Wyman. Check out that detail: Chicken scissors with the initials P.D. for our brother Perry (may he find peace at long last), and a scale-size hatchling. I love this. Todd, you are made of iron.
|Yes, once again I am on the cutting edge of intellectual foreign films. This touching piece of post-war ennui, a 2009 Sundance selection, comes to us from Norway. An emotionally gripping tale of a nation recovering from the scars of global conflict, DEAD SNOW carries into the struggle of a group of young people trying to come to terms with ...|
... aw, screw it. I can't keep this up. The movie is about frozen Nazi zombies. Now if you haven't already added it to NetFlix from the words "frozen Nazi zombies" alone, then you and I are different people, son, but I'll continue and try to bring you around to my way of thinking.

This is a new YouTube channel to which all geeks should subscribe. Just look at this lineup of shows! Some hard-working people in there, folks. Also, this trailer is a drinking game -- one shot every time you see Wil Wheaton.
|Junkies, it's been an amazing week at the Lair of Døøm™. We've got a loT going on (notice the capital T) these days, but this past week was a little ridiculous! We were finally able to share news of the GFL paperbacks, which is awesome. But the really wonderful news is the enormous response to the NOCTURNAL pre-order incentives, and the creation of such a robust and wonderful group of Founders for the Ionath Krakens Booster Club.|

We are doing big things, but we're still a very small company. To know we have support from so many wonderful folks is very humbling.
There is still time to become a founding member of the Booster Club, so click to find out all about that and other cool incentives as we get ready for NOCTURNAL!
We're thrilled to announce the creation of Dark Øverlord Paperbacks, an imprint of Diversion Books. Dark Overlord/Diversion will publish trade paperback versions of THE ROOKIE and THE STARTER, which are scheduled to hit stores on August 7, 2012.
And yeah, all-new covers. Bøøm. We're wicked like that.
Take a listen to the short interview Scott and I did with Scott Waxman, Chairman and Co-founder of Diversion Books to learn all about this exciting news. The audio is a bit wonky in a couple of places, but we thought it was worth it to share the good news quickly.
This is one more step on our quest for world døminatiøn. The US and Canada will be the first to fall. All your bookstores are belong to us.
