The Future of IMAO

Posted on July 13, 2012 1:00 pm

It’s been neat this week looking back at the past ten years of IMAO. It’s a lot of posts, and it was cool to see some Harvey found of mine that could have been written by someone else for all I remember of them. But this all really makes me wish I had more time for blogging to do some new more elaborate posts. I’ve had to give up blogging time for other writing projects as I’m trying to make my name as a columnist and I’m still working on my long time goal of being a novelist (back in 2005 I wrote a story, “Superego”, piece by piece on my blog and I’ve since rewritten it from scratch into a full novel; SarahK is helping me edit it and I’m about 60,000 words into another novel I’m working on). But there is certain kinds of funny that can only be done as blog posts and it needs to be done. In the very least, I need to make time for some more Frank the Artist (old archive here, new archive here), as that was some pretty funny stuff. And I wish I had time for more podcasts; I loved working on those with SarahK who is probably the most talented comedic actor of the group. We’ve been talking about doing our own RiffTrax of a movie for some time; maybe one day we’ll get time.

Well, who knows what the future will hold for me and for the blog IMAO. Well, on September 4th HarperCollins will be publishing my next book which will sort of be the magnum opus of my years of blogging. Here’s the preliminary cover for it:

In it, I will give my solutions to all of America’s problems. Interestingly, Obama isn’t mentioned once (other than the title of my previous book) because it’s a forward looking book about American greatness, so he didn’t really fit in it.

Anyway, I want to thank all my readers old and new for coming here and giving me your time. This blog has already given me so much, and I hope to continue to keep an entertaining stop for you all far into the future. And maybe make it a source for rebel news when the apes or the robots take over.

    Will there be pictures? I only read books with pictures.

    Congratulations. If I read both your books, maybe you’ll read one of mine. But probably not, because you’re a big-time newspaper columnist too. I hire Mexicans to write my newspaper columns.

    And thank YOU, Frank.

    (Yay!)

    IMAO ROCKS!!

    I REALLY loved the Podcasts you guys used to do! I’ve finally managed to get ahold of all of them — some from the archive site and some that we already had — and have been listening to them in the car when my kids aren’t with me (or are asleep and don’t care). I can listen to them over and over again, and not get tired of the funny! Do you think you’ll ever Podcast again?

    We did buy your first book, “In My World”, which was HI-LARIOUS! I think my husband has the short one that came out fairly recently (the name of which I can’t remember at this moment and am apparently too lazy to look up). I have yet to read that, but he was cackling throughout, so I expect it’s pretty funny, too. :)

    Good luck! God bless! This is a great thing you (and your fellow bloggers) do here!

    Mxymaster, understandable. The New York Times also hires people who aren’t Americans to write the columns real Americans would never write.

    It’s a proven scientific fact that listening to the IMAO podcasts gives you greater sex appeal, a higher IQ, and, in some rare cases, makes you more well-endowed. And if you pair it with a fitness regimen, you can even lose weight. In other words, it’s 100x better than that Adkins garbage and infinitely more free.

    Buck the Marine always stole the show. “There are still quite a few American-hating foreigners left, so if you’re up to it, and you’re over the age of 18, consider joining the Marine Corps. Can you think of another job when your action caused tons of people to die, you can get promoted?”

    I knew there was something odd about your new bookcover.

    That “screwdriver” looks like a “tweaker” that electrical engineers use. Typical.

    Keep it up, kid.
    Been reading since the “big move”, what, 10 years ago?
    No reason to stop now…

    Superego is the first thing I remember reading from this site, and is probably a big reason why I kept coming back here at first. Can’t wait to see what the new version is like, and will definitely buy.
