Snacks

Thought you guys might dig the new video from "Snacks," a band that Benjamin's really into these days. They just released their first ever DVD, and Most of their stuff's designed for kids 2-7, so it's perfect for your little sister or brother (or both). This clip's called "Me & My Ice Cream Cone," and if you want to see more check out www.snacksworld.com, or you the Facebook Fan page for "Snacks World."

Gag Order

Dear Friends:

It is with a heavy heart and sad mind that I inform you of the recent goings on…

To make a short story long, The Powers That Be are bringing charges against me for violations of The Golden Rule (you know, the one about not having relationships with anyone whose Case File you’ve ever had access to, etc, etc…) Namely, this relates to one Jennifer Kaley who I’ve been spending a lot of time with lately. I wanted to blog about it and tell you more – it’s been really cool – but I was afraid it might leak out or be used against me in The Court of Public Opinion.

This doesn’t mean I’m guilty. Part of my defense is that we met in a Dream World during “The Glitch in Sleep,” but as far as everything else that’s happened? Well, that might be hard to explain. The trial should take place sometime at the end of the summer or early fall, but until then, my attorneys have advised me to cease writing this blog. (They feel it could also be used to show a pattern of violating the Rules (ie…The Keep Your Mouth Shut Rule, etc..))

I just want to thank everybody for all their support and I should be able to continue Fixing until the trial, but after that I don’t know? Violating The Golden Rule has some pretty gnarly consequences. I really hope I don’t lose my job…or Jennifer.

Hope everyone is having a great summer and I look forward to speaking to you when all this blows over.

Live to Fix - Fix to Live,

Your friend,

Ferdinand Becker Drane III

New Tunes on the Fixer Jukebox

So I finally managed to work out the technological kinks on the Fixer's Jukebox and upload a whole ton of new music. The new stuff runs the gamut from some dusty old classics from my Dad's CD collection to the latest recommendations from WVHP'S legendery DJ Matt Rockman, to a few of my own personal favorites like "Snow Patrol" and "The Roadside Graves." As usual, there's not nearly enough hip hop or heavy metal on there, but I don't believe in censored music, and my Mom won't let me put any curses on the website. So here's the best of the rest, let me know what you think and since there's still time to sneak a few more tunes on there, send any requests you have to beckerdrane@gmail.com...

Take care, and hope you enjoy...

THE SEEMS CROSSWORD!

HEAR YE! HEAR YE!

Just as an FYI: Michael and John (the authors) finally posted the Seems Crossword in The Fixer’s Lounge!!! Download the PDF, print it out and work on it at your leisure – at school, summer break, down the shore with your parents, at Friendly’s, Starbucks, at your Aunt Zelda’s, on the subway, while you’re waiting in line at Target – anywhere!

I tried it last night and there are some tricky clues, but if you’re a “Seems expert” you *might* be able to solve it! (The answers can also be downloaded but only if you’re really stuck!)

HEAR YE! HEAR YE!

THE SEEMS CROSSWORD IS NOW AVAILABLE IN THE FIXER’S LOUNGE!

Good luck!!

Unknown Soldier website

For those of you who asked what happened to the original website for "Unknown Soldier" -- the HBO documentary author John Hulme made about his quest to know his father, who was killed during the Vietnam War -- the link off the Catalog page has finally been repaired. Just click on Catalog, scroll down to the "Unknown Soldier" area, and click on the "official movie website" link. There you can see the original trailer, see and hear clips from the film, as well as an interview with the director. Or you can just go there straight from here...

The Tide Is Rising

Dear Readers:

For those of you who don’t know, The Tide has begun a campaign to infiltrate not only the hearts and minds of people in The Seems but also of people in The World. The following video has recently surfaced on youtube, posted by an unknown user:

Please forward this link to everyone and anyone you know, so they can see for themselves the threat that The World faces. At this crucial juncture, we must remain strong in our beliefs.

Color Cutbacks

Dear Everyone:

Due to cutbacks in The Seems budget, there has been some talk of eliminating one color from The World. Right now orange, yellow, and purple are on the Chopping Block. This decision is not up to me, but if you have a favorite color you don’t want to see disappear (or one you could live without), please visit the forum section of www.theseems.com or email me directly at beckerdrane@gmail.com

Thanks for you help in this very important matter!

Sale at the Pagoda

Dear Everyone:

You may or may not known about The Pagoda – it’s the only newsstand in The In-Between and it’s been there for many years. Commuters who travel between World and Seems (Reality Checkers, Agents of L.U.C.K., etc…) often stop there to pick up a copy of the Daily Plan or a cup of Inspiration but because of they economy they might be forced to close.
