-Jenny Everywhere contest
Jenny Everywhere is a character that is free for anyone to use and, really, is a kick-ass concept. Go here for more information
-Sohmer from LFG and Least I Could Do is looking for a voice over actor to play the part of Rayne in a Least I Could Do series. You can get more information here . I'm pretty sure that the characters are supposed to be British, though, so I'm not sure how well accepted American or Canadian voice actors would be.
The contest may be closed by now, but since it doesn't explicitly say so, it's worth a check out anyway.
-Sean, the guy doing CMXpress, has given me a tour of the system so far (in early beta). Very slick!
Today we have a very lengthy, and just as good interview with Brad Guigar of Evil, Inc., Courting Disaster and Phables
