I am having entirely too much fun at work and I haven’t even gone out yet.
If you are a fan of Neil Gaiman and want a free audio download, for a limited time, you can get a free audio version of his short story “Click Clack the Rattlebag” from audible.com. An audible membership is not necessary to take advantage of this opportunity.
Here’s Neil telling you about it himself.

Okay, Euan’s not really back, that would be ridiculous. I’m just using his name for attention.
I’ve always wondered if I could do a better version of Wandering Euan’s euTube Extravaganza better than Euan himself. Actually, that’s a lie, I’ve always known that I could. So here is my attempt.
There is only one video. Chances are a lot of you will have seen it but if you have not it is worth the time because it is awesome.
Here is the summary…
In celebration of the fact that tomorrow is Halloween, Random House Audio is giving away Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as a free download from now until 11:59 PM Et. on Oct. 31.
You need to provide a valid email address which will opt you into the company’s email newsletter but you can immediately opt out and still receive the book.

Back in March, in the earliest days of this site, Art wrote a post about some corn dogs being sold at Arizona Diamondbacks games for $25. Yeah, there was a time when Art wrote posts for the site, he lasted longer than Euan but only barely. Anyway, teasing my friends is not the point of this.
It was the point of my subsequent post on the fact that the D-backs were experiencing a shortage of those corn dogs. Any chance I have to make fun of Euan…
There is good news for those of you who are around my age and fans of Nickelodeon classic cartoon series. Many of them will be coming to Hulu in the coming weeks. You can expect to see full seasons of shows like Hey Arnold, Ren and Stimpy and many others in the near future. Hulu has extended it's content deal with viacom to bring more properties to the streaming platform. This will include shows from: Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, VH-1, TVLand, BET, Spike and Logo. There will also be more Spanish language offerings from the Nickelodeon library added in the coming weeks. Senior Vice President and executive in charge of content Craig Erwich posted the following on the <a href="http://blog.hulu.com/2014/10/28/hulu-viacom-expansion/" title="Hulu blog" target="_blank">Official Hulu blog </a>earlier today.
Apple TV pushed out an update today which included 2 new channels.
In celebration of this Sunday’s FXX marathon of the first 24 Treehouse of Horror episodes (also known as the best day ever) and that Treehouse of Horror XXV just aired last week, entertainment Weekly has ranked all 75 Treehouse shorts from worst to first.
If you’ve ever read a post of mine and thought to yourself “man, I would love to read more!” then you have issues. But the ability to read more of my stuff is not one of them. I’m still making tweaks to the site itself but I have started posting blogs of more of a personal nature on my personal site.
That is for more daily life things and for stuff we don’t talk about here like politics. Pop culture and sports items are still going to end up here for the most part.
Mia, (the new girl) has a website that is coming soon but is also posting items on her temporary wordpress.com blog to get used to posting and such while I’m putting her real site together.
I should probably also plug Melissa’s Blog so she doesn’t feel left out.
After I was finally able to access Simpsons World yesterday, I realized it was awesome. My favorite feature is the fact that I can hit play on an episode and it will just keep playing episodes until I tell it to stop. This is handy for the lazy person that I am, sometimes pushing a button on a remote can be so bothersome.
However, there is one change that needs to be made and it needs to be made immediately.
To know me is to know a couple of basic truths, at least when it comes to entertainment.
After appearing and then disappearing from the FXNow app on Apple TV earlier today, the Simpsons World area has returned.
I am happy to say that it is streaming just fine. I am watching an episode called Gorgeous Grampa where it reveals that Abe Simpson was a Gorgeous George style professional wrestler. It seemed most appropriate given we deal with that subject on this site as well.
I was doing a google search today and came across an article from the aVClub. It asks a simple question. Can Simpsons World Learn from WWE Network’s Mistakes?
I can't say for sure that they will or weren't learn from the WWE but it does appear that the two services have something in common.
