Going To Be Writing for an Ezine!

To help spur on my creative juices I gladly joined the writing team of a new eZine that will be launching shortly called NoF PANTS PARTY. For those not in the know NoF stands for Nipples of Fate. They represent a relatively big underground video game community. One of their members decided to launch this eZine for the fun of it. To best describe it, I’ll let the creator do so in his own words:

“What is NoF PANTS PARTY eZine, you ask? Well, it’s a fun eZine where interesting folks get together to review games, movies, music, important issues and other Geeky related stuff. It is a requirement that you wear interesting pants or bottoms. Some may tell you that pants are optional but, in an effort to keep this lens family-friendly, we can neither encourage nor discourage such initiatives (but it’s a free country so do as you like)!”

As you can see it’s a fun project and looks to be a fun time for all to enjoy. The first issue should be out within the next few weeks or so and hopefully it’ll be monthly on the 30th of every month thereafter.

To sign up , simply email: and use “Subscribe” as your subject heading. That should be it. To learn more about NoF check out their blog or main members page.

My Favorite Number

For whatever reason, the number 7 has always been my favorite number. I really like that number. Not for superstitious reason or anything like that. I just like it. I guess my strong affinity to 7 is how linked I am to it. Take my birthday for instance. I was born on February, 7, 1977 at 7:30am. A whole lot of 7s there. Also my name, Julio, is the seventh month of the year (July).

Now that I’m trying to analyzing it, I guess that is the reason after all. Like I said, I’m not superstitious so I don’t think the number 7 can help ward away any ill will or luck or anything like that. I just like that number and the reason may be very superficial as the fact that I have a lot of 7s in my date of birth and my name is the seventh month of the calendar year. In some way I’m using the number 7 to celebrate myself. I’m not big on celebrating my own birthday so I think I’m entitled to a little self-indulgence here and there, right?
