How To Be A Villain by Neil Zawacki

For all you wanna be Evil-Doers out there, this book is a must read. Neil Zawacki ‘s How To Be A Villain helps you discover and develop your inner talent of being malicious, power-hungry, and/or insane. His book starts off with a simple test to answer what those voices inside your head have been asking, “Am I Evil?” including questions such as:

How do you start your morning?
A. Rise at six, shower while humming chipper tune
B. Perform vigorous knee bends and enjoy bracing five-mile jog
C. Hit the snooze alarm until hopelessly late for work
D. Sip a cup of coffee, read the newspaper, plot the downfall of civilization

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A. Police Officer
B. Doctor
C. Ballerina
D. Supreme dark overlord of all mankind, or a lawyer

Once you have determined if you possess the qualities to be a villain, you are ready to begin your journey down the destructive path of darkness with Zawacki’s book to help guide you along the way. He covers how to determine your underlying evil motives (greed, revenge, insanity or evil by nature), the importance of evil branding (evil name, slogan, jingle, logo, etc.), developing your evil laugh, choosing your sinister lair, deciding on your method of mayhem, how to select your henchmen, thwarting the forces of good, and the right fashion for your particular bedlam. But it does not end there my disturbing friends, also included is The Evil Plan Generator. This simple fill-in the blank form will assist you in constructing your own diabolical plan to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting world.

Once you have successfully become a Villain, I highly recommend Zawacki’s second book, The Villain’s Guide to Better Living, for better evil home design, evil health, evil work, evil social life, and evil travel.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha!!!How To Be A Villain

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Good OmensWhat book should one read when getting to go see the fantasico comedian Eddie Izzard? Well I am sure there are several, but I highly recommend the Good Omens The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter Witch, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

It is a story about Armageddon, demons, angels, and prophecies. The world is going to end this Saturday; the Divine Plan has been set in motion. However, you know that old saying “The best-laid plans of mice and men/often go awry,” or in this case “The best-laid prophecies of the Almighty and the Prince of Darkness for the end of the world may not quite go as foretold.” Yes, it seems that a certain demon and his angel pal, who have been living amongst us humans, aren’t too keen on giving up their current life-style. Couple that with an aging sergeant of the Witchfinder Army and a spiritual guide on a motor scooter along with the four horsemen on Harleys, and of course, the end of the world would not be complete without at least one UFO encounter, you could see where perhaps things might not go as expected. Oh, then there is the small issue of misplacing the Antichrist, but hey, sometime these things happen.

Like the back of the cover says, “What’s so funny about Armageddon? More than you’d think....” Good Omens is a hard-to-put-down LOL read to the very end.

Eddie Izzard

My sister and I treated ourselves to a night on the town last Wednesday night with dinner at the Paramount Cafe and then a EDDIE IZZARD show!! It was fantastico!

With bits on Noah's Arc and The Ten Commandments, he exceeded our expectations and added about 20 more laugh lines to our faces. I hope he will come back for future shows considering the record breaking heat here in Denver (going on 22+ days over 90 degrees, and a handful of those have been over 100). But despite the heat we had an awesome time and can't wait until the DVD comes out to relive the hysterical magic!
