Interview: Beau Watson Dreams up a Boil of Fun with Dreamlancer

In everyone’s favorite downtown Lafayette bookstore, Robots and Rogues, we managed to catch up with Beau Watson, author of Dreamlancer: The Tournament of Heroes, for his first Mosey Down Main Street experience1.

Dreamlancer is a 283 page, 10 or 11 point serif font fantasy book that explores the monster, griffin, raptor, and Godzilla-esq shadow beast inhabited Dream Realm. You can peruse the Dreamlancer Field Guide (wiki) and pressure Beau to create an HTML5 game of the book.

A short synopsis taken from the Dreamlancer website:

Ryan Wilkinson is a fairly average young man – that is, until he goes to sleep. As he slumbers, he dreams he is the hero of a faraway land. He is the Champion of Elyria: the Dreamlancer. Ryan soon learns that these are no ordinary dreams and that some mysterious force is tampering with the energies that flow from our world to the weird and wonderful Dream Realm. If nothing is done about it, the Dream Realm – and perhaps our own reality – could face a cataclysmic disaster.

1A sad reality is that not many Purdue students know about this fun and engaging street festival that takes place monthly over the summer months in downtown Lafayette. How are we going to change that? Lafayette’s Community of Choice consultants want to know. Join the conversation #LafCoC.

Interview: Harry and Jake Speak Politely – 2012-01-21 – Part 2

News Channel Internet

After spending several weeks trying to secure an interview with Harry and Jake of Harry and Jake Speak Politely, we managed to conduct a short interview.

January 21st, 2012. A superb evening of music (High School Girls, Broken Light, Mid-American) at the Knickerbocker Saloon in downtown Lafayette. High School Girls finished their set. Broken Light was adjusting the stage for theirs. I bumped into Harry and asked again for the interview. He agreed. Jake showed up a few minutes later. This is the second part of our initial encounter with these two independent media creators, Harry and Jake

We learned that despite the environment, it was not too loud to conduct an interview, what Harry and Jake Speak Politely is about, their lack of microphone stands, preferred beverages, why names are important to the interview style of Harry and Jake, the enchanting power of television, what level Harry and Jake are on, and their love of editing.

We learned that despite the environment, it was not too loud to conduct an interview, why Harry and Jake Speak Politely was created, what happens when the microphone is turned towards one of our News Channel Internet journalists, First Amendment rights, how you find out about other people, how Jake influences Harry, Jake’s super smart phone, and Jake’s habits with a mobile Internet device.

This is the first installment of the series with these two independent media creators, Harry and Jake.
