I’ve always wanted to go to England with the family; Cardiff, Stratford on the Avon, Big Ben, London, Piccadilly Circus, Liverpool… Please, simply amazing. Now I’ve got another reason. Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman are producing a new book written by Matt Lake, “Weird England”, see: http://www.amazon.com/Weird-England-Matt-Lake/dp/1402742290/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1201487017&sr=8-1 OR http://www.weirdnj.com/store/product.php?productid=16164&cat=249&page=1.
The Marks are famous around these parts as being the minds behind the greatest magazine in the known universe, “WEIRD NJ”. If you aren’t familiar with said text please see, http://www.weirdnj.com/misc/main.asp. If you want to see what it’s like to take the roads less traveled click away and start planning your own trip on the Weird side.
I love Weird NJ. The pair had a short-lived TV series on the History Channel. The network just didn’t get it and they were relegated to rerun purgatory. That’s too bad because the Marks would be perfect bookends to the Discovery Channel lineup of shows such as “Dirty Jobs” and “Mythbusters”. Yeah, these Jersey Boys would fit in just fine, thank you very much.
But I digress.
I’ll be picking up a copy of their latest tome, checking out Google Earth and the travel guides. It is important to plan for such contingencies…
I guess it’s time to get a passport.
