Thanks Amber & Jay, you had me with "we welcome numerical vagary and imprecision into our businesses like a box of free Krispy Kremes" at least with excuses you can give out alternatives. Its when a client is in denial that you know the day is too long....

I agree that adding the text would be helpful and give more choices to what is offered.. I'm exploring this as different way to present stuff, one nice thing is that you can record your own voice and add it to the character.. the software is free from a new company called http://www.xtranormal.com/ though if you want lots of characters and scenes there are small one time charges. Thanks for dropping by

Rod glad you could stop by to comment. I agree with you that we vote with our dollars and it would be great if all dog food met the highest standard. There are however millions of pet owners who can't afford organic and specialty food for those in their charge; they are the majority of dog owners and for them shining the light as many of these review sites do will encourage manufacturers to continually improve the quality of pet food. If you are on Twitter please tweet about this story and the review site.. Thanks

David, glad you dropped by and left a comment. I added the parenthesis around faithfulness just to empathize its meaning. I often use words in unusual contexts and because this was not a story I thought a little help might be warranted. The older I get the more I realize just how much different we all see things.

Anton, I don't think there is any cosmic mathematical one-hundredth monkey formula behind what I'm saying. There may be a bit of a romantic coloring in my desire for people to experiment more, I'll come clean on that part of my motivation. I'm not asking writers to be less bland or less true to their voice, I'm really asking them to consider what may be other sides to their art, other sides they have yet to explore. I confess to feeling silly thinking I have anything to say to any writer other then "experiment with your voice, you might find something quite wonderful." I do think the more we all stretch the better our chance of creating something we can't now conceive (romantic coloring). I see creative momentum sitting on-top a Pivot of Nothingness ( a Zen concept I'm bastardizing) with each moment all possibilities exist waiting to come into existence.

Thanks for the comment Laura, indeed plain yogurt is just too much.

Anton thanks for the comments. Indeed there is a dearth of punctuation in the post.. I have to disagree with you that we need less writers following an experimental path, bland sameness is the norm today and we do swim in an "enormous ocean of crap" but if making money is a writers reason for writing then you are correct and they should find what sells and pound it out. I'm not sure how much Joe Normal reads these days but maybe trying new or experimental approaches will incite new readers. Maybe being true to your own voice is more important then making money. Maybe?
