Planet JoCo Nears Its Climax
Posted on May 28, 2012 Posted by John Scalzi 9 Comments
The wife just came into the room and said: “I am doing things today. You are going to help me. There’s a lot of stuff. It will take up most of your day. Say goodbye to your Internet friends.”
So, uh, goodbye, Internet friends.
Whilst I am away, helping out the wife in the many tasks she has planned for me today, why not check out the latest installment in my conversations with Jonathan Coulton about his work? Today we are discussing his latest album Artificial Heart and his upcoming tour, which starts this next Friday. And if you’ve missed any of the interviews to date, here’s an index of every day so far.
Remember that the “Journey to Planet JoCo” feature concludes tomorrow, 9am with the debut of a brand-new song from Jonathan Coulton. I’ve heard it. I think it’s one of his best. You don’t want to miss it.
Kristine 1, Internet Friends 0.
As it should be…
This makes me feel less annoyed with my own honey-do list for today.
Actually I’ll just smile with the thought that your wife is like my wife. Or, that I’m like you in some ways. Haha. Have a good one, John. Break a leg! And just so you can’t grumble, I’m at work.
Seriously, the Code Monkey man is very cool.
I like how the images of you and JoCo for the Planet JoCo logo are so spot on. Jonathan looks suave and sophisticated; very Park Slope, whereas you look, frankly, unwashed and maybe a little unhinged.
That artist is seriously underpaid.
Wife aggro is the worst. Once you get on the list, there’s simply no way to clear it… Fade doesn’t do it, smoke bombs don’t help, and even if you manage to cast Invis, when it wears off SHE WILL REMEMBER. Best to just tank the aggro and hope your healer can keep up.
Next time you need help with stuff, see how it goes over when you “ask” for that help the exact same way as it was “asked” of you here. Bet that would make for an interesting “Whatever” post.
In fact, on the very rare occasion I need help, I often ask it similarly. Because, you see, we’ve known each other for 20 years, and know each other’s tolerances and personalities. So, no, it wouldn’t make for a particularly interesting Whatever post. She would help me out, is all.

Does Krissy do seminars or workshops on husband herding? Does her technique work on teenage boys? Are there food rewards involved?
