"Sherlock Holmes": The Official Trailer

I don't care what the stuffy Sherlock Holmes buffs think. As a revisionist-loving Sherlockian of more than 40 years, I think this trailer for the new Guy Ritchie movie looks like a whole lotta fun. And the film will probably result in tens of thousands of new Conan Doyle readers by year's end.

The naughty side of Sherlock Holmes

The cover of this 1950s paperback edition of Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles is sooooooo odd, so '50s, so pulp, and so, well, naughty, that it's one of my favorites.

And now...a brief commercial break

A few diligent readers have asked, "Where the hell are you?" And I apologize to those who've checked here lately time and again to find, well, nuttin' much new. I've tried to post something at least once a week, but alas...

I've been busy with a new online venture. I recently decided to take my 20 years of business, sales, and marketing know-how and gradually offer it in the form of digital products. These eBooks, audios, whatever, will be designed to help people launch and build their own businesses -- i.e., to smash wage-slavery one job at a time. I've worked as little and freely as possible since I left the corporate world in 1994. And I think it's time I shared some of what I've learned with other freedom-seekers.

So...if you're interested in my adventures beyond this blog, you might wanna grab a FREE copy of my first eBook in this business effort. You've gotta jump through a couple of anti-spam hoops to get the book, but it'll just take a minute. And I think you'll enjoy yourself.

You'll find the eBook available for download right here.

Oh, before I forget. This is definitely NOT the end of the out of step blog. In fact, I intend to amp up my work here considerably over the next few weeks. So stay tuned.
