Some Fun From Melbourne

Hey all,

We're here in sometimes sunny Melbourne, Victoria in Southwestern Australia.  We've got an apartment ten minutes away from downtown. It's got a great view, and it's a wonderfully comfortable place for us for the two plus months we're here.

We've been here just over a week and I've already found a multitude of funny signs and happenings I wanted to share with you guys. So enjoy!!!!!!!

Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me today. I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened.

Argh...this is terrible...

And today was starting out so well.

Again, I'm very sorry.


Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Cj!

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous fates, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

Anyway, I thought I'd share my recent interview with the Devil, in case you'd like to check it out:

Devil: First of all, let's get this out of the way. Do you dislike to avoid abstaining from not eating babies?
Jeremy C. Shipp: What?
D: Just answer the question!
JCS: No.
D: Ah, you do eat babies then.
JCS: No, I meant that I won't answer such a confusing question.
D: So you're not as smart as you claim to be.
JCS: I'm not claiming anything.
D: You wrote a novel. Isn't that another way of saying, "Look at me. I'm smarter than everyone else. I belong on a pedestal so that I can throw tangerines at people's kidneys."
JCS: Are you evil or just stupid?
D: Moving on. Let's talk about your novel.
JCS: Finally.
D: What inspired you to write a story that's pure evil?
JCS: I wouldn't say it's evil.
D: Aha, but didn't you say in a prior interview, and I quote, "I'm Jeremy. I like writing evil stories. Anyone who reads my book loves the Devil and wants to marry him?"
JCS: I never said that.
D: Your word against mine. Anyway, if your book isn't evil, then why do you kill every single character?
JCS: You haven't even read it, have you?
D: I can read it in your eyes.
JCS: That's it. We're done.
D: No, wait! I'm sorry. Sometimes I get a little overexcited. It's a condition. If you say your book isn't pure evil, then it isn't pure evil. I'm sure it's filled with baby puppies dancing on giant sunflowers.
JCS: Don't get me wrong. Bad things sometimes happen in the book, because bad things sometimes happen in life. People don't always act respectfully towards one another. The book, I'd say, has a good heart. It wants the world to be a better place.
D: I understand. You're saying that you're some sort of savior who can save mankind from all its suffering.
JCS: Just…forget it. This interview's over.
D: Fine. But before we can publish this interview, I'll need you to sign right here.
JCS: There…wait a second. What was all that fine print?
D: Nothing.

Jeremy :)

"Shipp's clear, insistant voice pulls you down into the rabbit hole and doesn't let go."
--Jack Ketchum

"[Vacation] is an intriguing, challenging, literate, provocative novel I'm not sure I understand and suspect I'm not meant to… I recommend it to those who find reality boring; it may make them see it in new ways."
—Piers Anthony

P.S.—I’m currently selling autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:
