J.C. Thompson Aims to Benefit New Orleans Artists with Print-on-Demand Availability of "Distance Til Empty: Volume VI" at

ATLANTA, GA —JANUARY 20, 2007— J.C. Thompson aims to benefit New Orleans Artists with the publication of Distance Til Empty: Volume VI in conjunction with Lulu (, the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.

Distance Til Empty: Volume VI is a collection of photographs taken in and around New Orleans, Louisiana.

J.C. Thompson wrote Distance Til Empty: Volume VI to assist in the restoration of the lifestyle and works of photographers, illustrators, and all visual artists living in the flood damaged regions of New Orleans. He came to Lulu because she wanted to be in full editorial control of the publishing process and found Lulu’s print-on-demand tools to be fast, easy and, most importantly, free; allowing the ability to have as much of the proceeds as possible go to the assistance of those he's working to help, with as little third-party interference as possible. Distance Til Empty: Volume VI is available for purchase on-line at

“During frequent visits to New Orleans before and after Hurricane Katrina, I was always spellbound by the art of the city.” said J.C. Thompson. “I realised after being inspired by NOLA for so long, I felt I needed to give something back, especially to the overlooked art scene that thrives in the streets there, even to this day."

Link to Publication:

J.C. Thompson is a published professional photographer, a signature fantasy artist, and a skilled website designer. He was born and raised in New Jersey, and has traveled the country extensively as an artist and photographer for the past 5 years. This is his seventh release.

Open Mic made with the joy again. Hurray! When more coherent, perhaps you'll get a post out of me.

In the meantime... I have a smallish favor to ask. I need "bits" of things. Some of you know what's up, the rest will get pictures eventually. But here's what I am looking for: buttons, beads, charms, bottle caps (preferably metal), bits of string, yarn, wire, or ribbon, safety pins, scrap fabric, loose keys, bits of metal (washers, nuts, odd bits), mardi gras beads, tinsel, paper clips, pushpins, left over craft supplies, glitter, sequins, and anything either bright, shiny or both. Said things can be returned to you if you wish, but please let me know in advance so I can catalogue what I've borrowed. I just need them for a couple weeks for a project I am working on.

It would be helpful to get things from some of you over the weekend, or at Open Mic next week. Thanks!!

See, this is what happens when I am online early. I noticed a strange similarity between a Henson character and a Whedon character. Collapse )
Because I'm seeing it. The shirts even match!

Because I can't be the only one to think this is funny, I had to post about it. I just received a piece of spam Collapse )

Can you see why I had to laugh?

I really like this one, and am happy to steal it from dcjester

Heard any good/bad rumors about me lately? Want to know the truth? Please leave a comment with what you've heard and I will respond in kind to each one.

No limits here, speak yer mind. Or rather, say what you've heard.

If you feel brave, or don't care. Go ahead and then post this in your LJ and see what happens.

EDIT: I liked dayglodivine's idea for this. Allowing comments from people who aren't friendlisted. But I am not screening. All absurdity will be dealt with.
