It came as a bit of a surprise to notice that, while checking our stats on the evening of October 6th, that this little blog of mine — still going strong for 17 years on the web and counting — has reached a milestone goal of 6,000 posts published! I wanted to wait until today to celebrate, so as to not steal the thunder of the tragic passing of the great Edward Van Halen, who shall be missed on this earthly plane, but whose musical legacy is immortal. Thanks for reading!
It’s been a while since the NeatoShop (with which the Worley Gig is affiliated) had a Mystery Sale and Sweepstakes, so we’re super excited to have it return for Neatorama’s 10th Anniversary!

What mystery item will you get? Duh! We’re not telling – that’s the whole point of having a mystery sale.
But what we can tell you is this: you’ll get a physical thing (or a combination of several physical things) worth at least $9.95. If you buy more than one Mystery Item, you’ll get different things.
Will it be a neat random T-shirt? Maybe (that’s why we ask for your size). Or will it be a cool novelty item? Or will you win the super awesome SECRET BIG ITEM? What is it anyhow? Again, we’re not telling – but we can tell you that it’s pretty awesome. If you’re a long-time reader of Neatorama, you’ll know that we’ve given away geeky watches, cool electronics, limited edition collectibles, and more.
So what will you get? Don’t miss out on the fun! Buy a Mystery Item (or a few) today! Click Here to purchase your mystery item! Sale Ends at 11:59:59 on Sunday August 23rd!

Greetings friends and fiends. You may have noticed that we underwent a facelift over the weekend. What you see now is leaner, meaner Gig where we will bring you even more rad Pop Culture Happenings, News and Event Reports in a virtual environment with much less clunk in the trunk.
Many of the old dead service pages that nobody ever looked at have been eliminated and I am in the process of updating the Interview archives for your perusal. Oh, the Radness.
Worley Gig is now hosted by WordPress, having escaped the tyranny of our former Host
age Company, so you should no longer experience any messages that the site is down, as had been the case with our former host. Special thanks to Ian Koss for the new site design and supervision of the move.

Writer Tim Hall and Cartoonist/Illustrator Dean Haspiel have collaborated on an intriguing short story — told in the form of a graphic novel — entitled The Last Mortician, which has been published at literary website Tor Dot Com. The dystopian vision of this brief but powerful tale focuses on a time in the future when mankind has opted to trade the ability to procreate for the questionable “gift” of eternal life. I loved the story and the illustrations, and just wish it had been longer. Maybe Tim and Dean will turn it into a movie script?!
Both Tim and Dean have strong ties to The Worley Gig: Tim having originally named The ‘Gig way back when it was just a syndicated print column in a little NYC free alternatively monthly called The NY Hangover. Dean, whose work has earned him an Emmy, designed (in my likeness) the Worley Gig avatar you see on the website’s header! Do visit The Last Mortician, when you have a few minutes to spare. It is a fairly quick read and very much worth the click!
Earlier today, representatives from the three raddest pop culture blogs on the web, OMG BLOG, WorleyGig and According to G met at restaurant 7A to discuss Brunch food options. The consensus was: California omelet, 7 grain toast, home fries, side of crispy bacon (“like little boards”), fresh-squeezed orange juice and coffee.
