Roasting a Friend


Over the next few days, bloggers around the sphere are getting creative and posting a few words on our friend, Alex J. Cavanaugh.  If you don't know Alex yet, then you're one of few, but worry not, because this is a perfect opportunity to get to know him, and learn why so many of us are tipping our virtual hats to this superstar blogger and author. In short, he's one heck of a supportive guy.

But he's also a bit of an enigma. No one knows what Alex looks like. The only picture on his blog is a silhouette. We do know some of his likes and dislikes, though, so we have a teensy weensy bit to go on.

So what does Alex look like? Who should play him in his life story? Who does Alex remind me of? So many possibilities, but after much deliberation, I've come to the conclusion that he surely must be a combination of this:



Brief Bio:

When not writing the manual on Cosbalt defense tactics, Mr. Cavanaugh uses his ninja skills to create high intensity guitar riffs for space hero Byron's action sequences. That is, unless it's a IWSG first Wednesday of the month, when he circles the blogosphere showing support for insecure writers everywhere.

Want to see how other bloggers imagine Alex? Go here. Should be a rockin' good time. :)

And while I'm still gazing at the lovely Chris Pine picture above, have you seen the trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness yet?? *swoon*



How about you? Any thoughts on Alex? Or the latest Star Trek film? What movie are you looking forward to? Please share ....

So I'm a smart aleck guitar player, huh?
Thank you SO much, PK. You really rock.

Karen Walker said...

I posted on my blog, but didn't roast him. Sigh, I just have such a hard time following rules.

Kittie Howard said...

Rules, smules. I'm photo-shopping Chris Pine's mug over Alex's avatar.

Suzi said...

Love that 2nd photo. Although from what I know of Alex, I'm thinking it's not as likely.

But then again, I've never met him, so what do I know?

SA Larsenッ said...

Okay. This is one of the funniest ones yet! He is so Slash!!

Miranda Hardy said...

I can see a mix of Slash in there. Lol

Old Kitty said...

Heather Gardner said...

Wow. We should keep a hot actor chart.
This is a great choice!

Nice post.

michelle said...

First pic - yep.
Second pic - not too sure... guitar part yes...
Who knows? We're all guessing... maybe a combo of the two pics?

Robin said...

I can't wait to see The Hobbit. And I know Alex through IWSG-so thankful for that.

Hart Johnson said...

HA! Love your speculation on what Alex looks like!

Jay Noel said...

Funny how so many of us compared him to a rocker/guitarist. That's awesome!

Melissa Bradley said...

I think you've captured him very eloquently, PK. Brillaint piece and heck yes, I LOVE that Star trek trailer. I can't wait.

Johanna Garth said...

So funny!! And yeah, I could kind of see him like that too.

Movie I'm most looking forward to...This is Forty.

cleemckenzie said...

That's quite a mashup of people you've chosen to represent Alex. I think you're on to something!

Candilynn Fite said...

Loved your tribute! He is amazing, that's for sure. :)

Cassie Mae said...

Can't. Stop. Staring. At. Sexy. Chris. Pine.

Alex is the Ninja. I'm looking forward to trek's into darkness too.

Donna Hole said...

Swoon is right :) That bio was a cool idea.

........dhole

Michael Di Gesu said...

Many thoughts on the Ninja Captain, but I already posted them ... LOL.

You've got good taste PK... I must say. LOL.

Lynda R Young said...

Chris Pine, huh? YES!!!!

Trisha said...

Great post for AlexFest, PK! Love your estimation of what Alex looks like :)

Jeff Hargett said...

Great job packing all those terms in such a short piece! Very well done.

Cally Jackson said...

Hahaha, I so hope Alex has a bit of Slash about him! :-)

Medeia Sharif said...

I'm trying to combine the two pictures in my head.

This is a fun blogfest. I'm enjoying what the participants came up with.

Mark Koopmans said...

Laughing while reading your post and then the comments.

Alex "slash" Cavanaugh... oh I love it :)

Tara Tyler said...

that was so fun =)
great job!

fOIS In The City said...

PK, you are the third friend who posted "Alex" ... Maybe I've formed an image of him from Star Wars. Could he be Hans or Chubaka? Don't think he's whimpy enough to be Luke and has the wrong equipment to be Princess Lea ... Oh well ... by what I've read he's certainly not Darth. I think I'll go with Chubaka :)

Ella said...

Major swoon ;D Love your post!
Fun to read!

Susan Kane said...

We have to wait until May? Oh, well. Currently, I am waiting for the Hobbit and Les Mis.

Alex C (the mystery man) is such a strong writer, and a strong supporter of other writers.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Love the combo - definitely a smart aleck guitar player! :-) with lots of cheer. I'm looking forward to The Hobbit this week, and both Star Trek and Ender's Game next year!

Morgan said...

Perfect tribute to Alex! Loved it. Thanks so much for participating!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

James Kirk! Of course!

Carol Riggs said...

Perfect Alex pics! LOL Whoa--powerful trailer. Gotta see that one. I loved the first movie too, with the beginnings of Captain Kirk and Spock. :) I'm looking forward to the Oz The Great and Powerful movie!!

mshatch said...

Christine Rains said...

Fun post! I can't wait to see Into Darkness. I just saw the trailer the other day. It was awesome! I haven't been this excited about a Star Trek movie in a long time.

William Kendall said...

So Alex is a smark aleck captain who can also do a guitar riff for the music score?
