Hey, all! Just a heads-up that Dead Air will be live on Tuesday nights instead of Monday nights for the next several weeks. I have an online class that meets on Monday nights for four… long… hours… (I’m in it now, actually).
Here’s the link for tomorrow night’s show! And, as always, you can stream or download the show from Blog Talk Radio or iTunes to listen later.
Please don’t be shy about calling in! We love hearing from you.Tags: Dead Air
Fellow Eric-lovers, I know I’ve been a negligent webmiss for the past months. I started grad school in the fall, and I’ve been happily enjoying another new obsession (Hunger Games!) while I take a short break from Sookieland. Sometimes you just get burnt out on things, you know? But I will be back to updating this site regularly as Deadlocked and season 5 draw closer.
And, of course, there’s still Dead Air on Monday nights following new episodes of The Vampire Diaries. In the spring, Dead Air will revert back to being an Eric-centric podcast as we discuss book 12, dissect and fangirl over the new season promos, do a book 5 group read, and then talk about each episode of season 5.
So thanks for bearing with me. Team Eric – now and always!
The time has rolled around when I need to renew EN.net’s account on Blog Talk Radio so that we can continue to bring you Dead Air – interviews, episode discussions, and theme shows on fanfiction and other topics. The cost to renew for the year is $300. Last year, fans sent us every last penny we needed, and I was amazingly grateful. I’m hoping that you can help us again this year because I’m broke – in fact, the reason the site was down for several days was because the domain expired, and I couldn’t afford to renew it! Without your help, Dead Air will have to be put on hold indefinitely.
So please, please, please click the “donate” button to your left. It’ll take you to Paypal, and you can send us any amount you want, even if it’s a dollar.
If you’ve enjoyed EN.net’s interviews with Alexander Skarsgard, Kristin Bauer van Straten, and Charlaine Harris, and/or if you enjoy our discussions about True Blood, the SVM books, and The Vampire Diaries, please consider helping us.
Hi, everyone! Hope the holiday season is treating you well and isn’t too hectic so far. Things have been fairly quiet in Eric land, apart from the release of the book 12 cover art and a short plot blurb (see this great post at Sookieverse Blog for more on that).
Dead Air is on hiatus with The Vampire Diaries until the new year, and then later this spring we’ll return to our home sweet home, Area 5, with a group read of book 5, discussion of book 12, and – of course – season 5 of True Blood.
Here’s hoping that 2012 brings us lots of good things in the Eric department.
Hey, all! I know the fanfiction archive is refusing to load. I’m working on it. Thanks!
For personal reasons, I will be slow updating (if at all) for the next several days. I apologize in advance.
After a long time looking ugly, the forum layout is now fixed. The discussion thread for last night’s episode is here.
If past seasons are any indication, site traffic is going to blow up in the coming weeks. I started paying extra for a private server last season, and hopefully, it’ll be enough to handle this season. If you’d like to donate a dollar or two to help me keep this site up and running and ad-free, please use the Paypal button below. Seriously, even a dollar can help more than you know.
I absolutely love it, and I hope you do as well!
Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the tragedy in Japan and throughout the Pacific region. Here are two ways to help:
Give to the Red Cross. If you live in the US, you can text REDCROSS to 90999, and $10 will be charged to your next phone bill. This is an easy, instant, and affordable way to do your part. Visit their website for other payment options.
Spread the word about Google’s person finder. Tens of thousands of people are missing, and thousands more are looking for them.
I’m sure people have noticed the trouble with the site over the past several days. Because of high bandwidth usage (lots of visitors using lots of pages – which in itself is great!), my host put this site on a private server, which costs me extra each month. It’s not a lot, but it adds up. If you’d like to help, just use the Paypal button below. Every dollar in the virtual jar is beyond appreciated. Thanks for everything, Team Eric, and Happy Valentine’s Day! (or, if you’re like me, Singles Awareness Day)
You might notice the new toolbar at the bottom of the page. From the toolbar, you can connect to Facebook and Twitter without leaving the site, see who’s online, and even chat with other fans. The toolbar is unobtrusive, but you can close it at any time by clicking the arrow in the bottom-right corner.
Note: when you connect with Facebook, it’s going to ask you to grant access to the application, like all Facebook apps do. Your privacy is perfectly safe. The toolbar only uses your Facebook info as a way to log you in for liking a page, posting about a page, etc. If you still feel uncomfortable using it, you can always connect with Twitter, Yahoo, or MySpace.
