Update! Somehow I missed this extraordinary post by Kicker of Elves about the wonders of songwriting—”The Region Where the Air Is Music.” If you want to know about the origins of one of my favorite songs, “U.V.A.,” it’s must reading. I’ve struggled for a couple years to try and write about why I love KoE’s music. Here’s a boot I drew and named for one of his songs to tide you over until I do.
Also of note: the irrepressible Karen Healey on the new “Minx” line of comics from DC.
FURTHA UPDATE: if you make the best stab at what “Sub-Par in the 90’s” “means”—referencing at least four components in the picture—I’ll send it to you, framed, as an early Xmas prize. Take a shot in the comments!
Annnnd . . . welcome back! This post is for you if you, like me, spent most of Saturday huddled around a radio, sipping delicious corn chowder, and gulping Mad Dog 20/20 “Purple Rain” in order to stave off the bitter taste of defeat. Here we go!
I’m often at parties, parties where there are a lot of girls who want to make out with me, and I am inevitably asked this question: “dude, how hot is Professor Fury in real life?”
And the answer is “Rowdy Roddy Piper hot.”
I spent all day yesterday bowling and playing pool and just generally pouring as much beer in my mouth as I could, and today I was off and wanted to scare up a few decent Polaroids. Nothing turned out good, but I always love driving around and Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio was on the XM and that’s good enough for me.
Part of it, I must admit, is the fact that I love the idea of having something new to post.
In 1992 I wanted so badly to vote for William Jefferson Clinton but my eighteenth birthday was still four months away. Alabama won the National Championship and I hurdled the Alabama border at sunset in a midnight blue 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, taking Mississippi as my home.
Gloria in excelsis deo,
et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis
