You’re in deep with the wrong people

July 9, 2012

One way to look at this is Selina having a busy night with two – count ‘em two – world class break ins that no other thief in the world could pull off.  And Occupy Gotham and the Anonymous hackers entrenched there, etc., etc.

"You're in deep with the wrong people" -Bruce Wayne to Selina Kyle, The Dark  Knight Rises.   Bruce, you have NO IDEA.

The other way of looking at it is that our favorite feline is in way, way, way over her head.  (Including the extra inch from the ears)

Let’s just say it’s an episode with some seismic implications in the latest update at Gotham After Dark.

The Gotham Rogues – The Fire Rises!

June 28, 2012

I guess we all know by now that The Gotham Rogues have had a bit of a week.  The season hasn’t even started yet and the Occupy Gotham chapter of anonymous hacked their website.  They put up a cute little video explaining “The Fire Rises” rally, just to have something up there while they repaired the damage, and THAT got hacked.  It’s really pretty creepy…

Anyway, they got the website back up now, but it’s really quite funny, because they didn’t get all the anonymous stuff out, so there are still remnants of the hack attack here and there.  Poor Rogues.  But you can’t keep a Gotham Rogue down for long.  They’ll be in top form by game day (Rapid City Monuments are going DOWN on the 20th!)   Remember, if you can’t be in the stands at Gotham Stadium, the ONLY place to be on game day is The Rising Fire sports bar.

The Fire Rises! Go Rogues.

And so it begins… After Coffee

The Gotham Rogues Chapter 5: And So It Begins

It’s a tricky business being the one-woman marketing department for an operation like Cat-Tales.  See, I had a plan.  Come backstage with me for a minute, pay  no attention to the madman spattering paint over there on the Occupy Gotham set.  It means nothing.

Okay, so, it’s a new chapter day, and I had a plan.  There’s the link to the chapter on the main Cat-Tales site and on the mobile-friendly mirror, that’s two links for me to be a-posting.  There’s the Cat-Tales Facebook Page and then there’s my personal profile, and I think it’s tedious and annoying to be posting the same things in both places within seconds of each other.  So what I like to do is give a little teaser on my profile while the CT page gets the links, then I go on and send out the newsletter, post on the forum, etc. etc. and finally go back to Facebook and share the link on the profile.

I had my teaser all picked out, or at least narrowed down.  The title of the chapter is: And So It Begins, a reference, of course, to this moment

Nothing says the long built up war is finally upon us like those 4 little words: And So It Begins

I didn’t expect to actually find it on YouTube, but it’s there, along with this rather haunting piece of music with the same title:

No doubt the same allusion.  It’s the phrase of choice to indicate a war against the rising darkness.  Joe Straczynski did the same on Babylon 5.

So anyway, I teased the new chapter day and shared the link, got on with my day, uploaded the new chapters, went about sharing that link on Facebook, Twitter, sent newsletter, posted in forum and… uh, oops… turns out I didn’t share the video on my profile after all.

Have I ever mentioned what a total mess I am before coffee?  I was logged in to post on the Cat-Tales PAGE when I shared the video, so it went up there along with the chapter links.  That’s perfectly obvious now, but before Gevalia’s caffeine lube has worked its magic on my brain, you should have seen me trying to figure out why the damn thing I KNEW I had posted was. not. there.

Moral: don’t try to facebook before coffee.  Just, don’t.

Oh, yeah, the new chapter, right.  Cat-Tales #65:  The Gotham Rogues, Chapter 5: And So It Begins on the Cat-Tales website and mobile-friendly Cat-Tales.mobi
