Update from Massachusetts!

Greetings from Massachusetts, Mad Hermit viewers! This past week has been much busier than usual and so there's been much less time to update this blog. Fortunately, enough, by this weekend, things will be caught up and I’ll be able to fill everyone in on what’s been going on.

Currently, I’m on a trip with my family to Maine and given that I probably won’t have much Internet access for the rest of the trip (with today being an exception due to some fabulous wireless accommodation by the hotel), there won’t be much to see for the next few days. Sorry to disappoint (yeah, like anyone really cares)!

But, anywho, I’m currently trapped in a nice cozy hotel room in Massachusetts, which is the halfway point to Maine from Jersey. Tomorrow, I’ll probably be crossing over the New Hampshire border later that day.

So, I’ll try my best to bring back as many souvenirs as I can (like hopefully a kidnapped Stephen King or that weird clown from “IT”)! Wish me luck and I hope I don’t stare into the “deadlights”!

Starting A Productive Day

Here's a wonderful article on some steps a person can take to begin a productive day. It's from Freelance Folder and the link for it is right below.

Overall, I especially like Step 4, but the thing I would add is also asking yourself to write down those tasks that are realistically achievable for that day (people have the habit of over/under-estimating things).

Furthermore, for Step 2 (the 20 minutes of discipline) I would adjust that step accordingly to pure preference. Cause some of us only need 10 minutes, while others might want longer. In addition to that, sometimes 20 minutes of discipline might be better as an afternoon or mid-day break routine rather than a morning thing. That's just me.

Shakespeare, Sesame Street, and Captain Picard

What do they have in common? Nothing really. Until now.

Stephen King's "N" - Best of Stephen King With a Lovecraftian Touch

There's a new animated miniseries by Stephen King that's currently playing on the web. It's entitled "N". "N" is one of the most enthralling online series that I've ever watched and, right below, I've included its first episode, just to give you all a sample.

For the main website (which also contains much better video resolution), visit Keep in mind, a brand new episode of this series will be posted every weekday until August 29th, so be sure to bookmark this page!
