Celebrating Fraggle Style

I recently rewatched the first episode of Fraggle Rock.



Wow. It was fun to remember things about the show. Here is a highlight.

- Clothing is optional. Some fraggles wear shirts, some hats, some a scarf, and many wear nothing at all. Are fraggles semi-nudists?

- Doozers are still cool. They work all the time, but they're stinking cute. I wanted one as a pet when I was little and I always wondered what their construction tasted like.

- The Trash Heap continues to freak me out. There is nothing more unnatural than sentient compost. So wrong.

- Fraggles celebrate everything. "You got a letter. Let's all dance and sing!" I think we can learn a lesson from them.

I am now over 1,000 pageviews for the month. The closest I've ever come before was 950. It's time to celebrate, fraggle style.

No, I'm not going to dance and sing. That might scare you all. My wife says I dance like a disturbed cartoon character and my singing is random and not great. Instead, I'm going to give away my books.

Yep, two wonderful followers are going to get a copy of The Crystal Bridge and Zombies at the Door, Planning for the Inevitable. I'll send you a print or digital copy, whichever you prefer. Yes, two. Each of you will get a copy of each. That's four books I'm giving away.

"Some fraggles wear shits."

That I would really like to see :)

Doug Stephens said...

Oh, and no need to put me in the drawing for a free book. I already bought both versions. The e-read for me and the physical version as a Christmas present.

Charlie Pulsipher said...

That is, by far, my most awesome typo yet! Thanks for the support, Doug. That I'm considered present worthy makes me very happy.

Michael Offutt said...

I've already got copies of both of your books so omit me from the contest winners. I did like Fraggle Rock as a child.

Alyson said...

ooh contest! Count me in. I used to love the fraggles. :)

Candice said...

Fraggle Rock. THE coolest show EVER!!! I'm a fan.

Put me in the contest, as I seriously have had NO time to read anything fun these days, and haven't had the chance to buy them yet. I'd LOVE to have copies of your books. :)

Brent Wescott said...

Sign me up. I'll give them as gifts if I win. Widen your readership.

And Fraggle Rock is weird.

Draven Ames said...

Good idea, Brent. I'll do the same.

I miss Fraggle Rock too. And The Muppet Show. But mostly I miss the way the world felt when I was that age.

Was the clothing optional on Fraggle Rock BECAUSE they were always celebrating?

I finished "The Crystal Bridge" two days ago. I liked it. Good job.

Atypical Scott said...

Free is good. I never win anything, unless I am pandering or telling people how little I ever win at anything, but I am not doing that now. Plus, I want to interview you still, for some reason that settles well with me ADD Me.

Michael Offutt said...

Hello Charles, I put your book up on my blog today. Hopefully more exposure is a good thing.

Laura said...

Oh - Fraggle Rock! Now there's a welcome blast from the past! It's great to meet you -I hopped over from Michael's place - and I think that you should celebrate fraggle style - your style certainly sounds fitting :)

Hopped over from Michael's blog. I'd love the print copy mostly because I don't have a kindle and haven't figured out a way to carry my desktop to bed with me for reading on my kindle app. I've added you to my "to-read" on goodreads and will get to you soon. Just a couple of books in line ahead of you.

Ruthykins said...

please let me win! I love to read and your books seem right up my alley.

We all read in the bathroom!!

Heather said...

I would like to win your books, i think my husband and I would enjoy them.

Kerry said...

Shirt! Oh, I mean shit! Wish I'd been here early enough to catch that typo.

I would love a copy of your book(s). I'll tweet about it, but only have 4 or 5 followers, so honestly that shouldn't really count.

Charlie Pulsipher said...

Thank you all for participating. I announced the winners today. Congrats to those lucky two.
