Welcome to I Can Haz Murder, a murder mystery… start here A strip joint in the morning, an empty paddy wagon trolling down the main drag, two young guys in striped shirts and jeans, stumbling and laughing down Grant Street with lattes.

Well, kinda. I got a comment from a reader that there’s a New Jersey movie called iMurder (not to be confused with my fictional murder mystery series, iMurder). I went to the site and saw the trailer. There’s some misleading facts in the intro (making the correlation between population and user profiles on 1:1 basis […]

Posted by banane on January 4th, 2007 — in iMurder

Beth waited in front of the ghost screen for Sosa. She had picked New Asia for their lunch. It was big, anonymous, and tasty dim sum restaurant on Pacific Street. She hadn’t had a chance to get a good talk in with Sosa since the closure of the iMurder case. Sosa and Mikey, his lieutenant, […]

Posted by banane on December 6th, 2006 — in iMurder

Mac paid the check- it was his turn- and they walked out onto a warm July evening.They decided to get in a cab and head downtown. They sat at a quiet, hushed wine bar in the Embarcadero Mall. They could talk freely here- this would be the last place anyone in the Web 2.0 community […]

Posted by banane on November 30th, 2006 — in iMurder

Something was gelling- with Jelly’s murder, with that guy Joe that Beth didn’t even know, heck, even with the poobar incident. There was a long line at Delfina’s of folks waiting to get seated, and the nattily dressed twentysomethings at the bar were getting noisier with each mojito they drank. “I guess we should free […]

Posted by banane on November 2nd, 2006 — in iMurder

He remembered the muggy warmth of that night. It was the beginning of a long fogwave. First foggy day in what would be three weeks of fog, that nicely coincided with the string of murders sweeping the city. He hadn’t known all that though. At that moment, he was in the pit of his own […]

iMurder 18: It’s a Ritual

Posted by banane on October 19th, 2006 — in iMurder

“Why does Tom work here?” Sosa asked Beth. It seemed like just another cafe in the Mission, except for the line of fixed track bikes out front, and a solid crowd of digerati. “Because this is gossip central.” She said, rummaging in her purse; today it was a “newspaper purse”– lacquered old Chinese newspapers folded […]

iMurder 17: Blogs Will Keep Us Together

Posted by banane on October 18th, 2006 — in iMurder

Mac still felt on the outs with Beth ever since he’d told her about Jelly. He knew he was lame for not telling her right when they got back together, but he was just so happy that she was talking to him, it wasn’t hte right time to say, “Oh, you know your best friend? […]
