Cheers, Cavanaugh Blogfest

A Blogfest to pay tribute to one awesome rockstar ninja of a blogger, Alex Cavanaugh begins TODAY! Mr. Cavanaugh is a bit of a mystery - no one know a whole lot about his private life - and hey, that's none of our biznass. He's got tons of followers, he gets almost 200 comments per post every day, and he makes an incredible effort to reach out to everyone.

And that is something to celebrate.

The blogfest asks us to answer four simple questions about Alex Cavanaugh. Although the man is an enigma, I carefully read every single post he's made in the last two years and used psychology, sociology, astrology, and a little biology in order to draw more concrete conclusions about this man in an effort to chip away at the myth behind the man.

So here we go!

1) What does Alex look like?
This is easy. Since we know he loves rock n' roll, and I saw quite a number of references to him playing an electric guitar, Alex is a dead ringer for Eddie Van Halen. Long dark hair, denim jeans, silly grin on his face, and an electric guitar in hand. I used skills that are normally employed by criminal illustrators in order to render this drawing below:


2) Who could play Alex in a documentary?
Although he looks just like Eddie Van Halen, the rock star couldn't play Alex in a documentary because #1 the guy cannot act, and #2 he's too old. I think Ewan McGregor looks just like him thought. So that would work!



3) Who does Alex remind you of?
Hmmm...I was going to say David Lee Roth, but I'll go with Eddie Van Halen for some strange reason. The name just popped into my head. Very random. They are both maestros at what they do, their talents are out of this world, so that's what comes to mind.

Did Eddie Van Halen ever don a ninja costume on stage?


4) Flash fiction using these words:
Cavanaugh, Ninja, IWSG, Cosbolt, Guitar

I decided to be VERY original and whipped this out of thin air:

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents on Alex Cavanaugh's Cosbolt fighter — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent ninja-like gust of wind which swept up the streets, rattling along the housetops of bloggers finishing their IWSG posts, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the ignited electric guitar Alex played and struggled against the darkness.

Thanks Alex J. Cavanaugh, for all you do!

Love it, Jay! I'm totally loving the ninja playing the guitar pic. Too awesome. And heh, loved the "Dark and stormy" LOL. ;D

Tammy Theriault said...

mine is scheduled for tomorrow...but i put that he was like eddie too!! great minds think alike!!

michelle said...

Hi Jay. I love the illustration... and the flash fiction piece rocks! It's upbeat and filled with energy....

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The illustration rocks! And Eddie is too old - but not by much. (Sadly.)
That is really awesome, Jay. Thank you so very much.
Curious as to what biology you used...

Elise Fallson said...

Oh I finally found someone who draws as brilliantly as I do! :D Fun flash and yes, Ewan McGrego is a fine choice! (:

Miranda Hardy said...

I love the analysis and careful choosing! Great post, Jay!

Jay Noel said...

Morgan: Had to put a ninja with a guitar in there somewhere!

Tammy: Really? What a coincidence.

Michelle: Thanks!

Alex: Hmm...I think I just threw in that term for good measure.

Elise: It's not so easy drawing with a mouse.

Miranda: Thanks Miranda!

Laura Eno said...

Love the drawing of Alex and the Dark and Stormy! ;)

Michael Offutt, Speculative Fiction Author said...

Gotta love the pictures of Eddie Van Halen because that's exactly how I think of him too! Great post Jay.

Melissa Bradley said...

That ninja guitarist rocks! And your artwork is astounding. Love the hair on that guy.

J. A. Bennett said...

Your drawing skills are the bomb! ;) That's totally what Alex looks like!!
Love the flash fic too, so fun.

Emily R. King said...

Oh my gosh Ewan McGregor really does look like Eddie! Crazy!

Another great post about our Captain, Jay. :)

Jay Noel said...

Laura: Thanks!

Michael: Great minds, great minds...

Melissa: Yeah, I'm a regular Pee-Casso

J.A. I'm sure he was honored by my etch-a-sketch.

Emily: I know, he's his long lost twin brother!

Huntress said...

Excellent flash fic! And Van Halen. *smack forehead*. Heck YEAH!

Lynda R Young said...

I LOVE your artist's impression!! One flaw however, Ewan can't act either ;)

M Pax said...

I see long hair too, but for some reason, blond. Ewan McGregor is an excellent choice.

M.L. Swift said...

Wonderful post, Jay. I always appreciate a good offering that starts with "It was a dark and stormy night..." Nice tribute.

Christine Rains said...

That was great! I could see Ewan McGregor playing the Ninja captain.

David P. King said...

Kudos for starting off with a "stormy night!" This was great, Jay. I love how all these guitar playing ninja pics are making their way out of the wood work for this fest. Thanks for taking part, sir! :)

Cherie Reich said...

Love the sketch of Alex! And the ninja playing a guitar, so Alex! :)

Stephen Tremp said...

I think that drawing is spot on! Now we know what the real Alex looks like.

Jenna Howard said...

Nice to meet you Alex.

Jay, you have mad drawing skills. Oh the things I learn after 7-ish years...

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Ewan, oh, yeah! Great answers, Jay.

The Desert Rocks said...

What a wonderful tribute. I hope Alex doesn't get offended that you think he sports a mullet.

Sherry Ellis said...

This was a great tribute! Ewan McGregor was a terrific choice!

Melanie Schulz said...

Love the picture!

Kelley Lynn said...

Oh geez. That illustration is so cool. :) Great post

Cynthia said...

That's a fun picture!

D.G. Hudson said...

New follower, and I like your choice of Ewan to play Alex.

Jay Noel said...

Looks like my drawing is popular.

The first time I drew on my blog, it was to illustrate how aliens experimented on some poor guy that I had interviewed.

I'll have to find that draw-ring.
