So I spent more time working on the digital comics .  I am about halfway through with making the PDFs.  So as an example here is Vigilant #1 (I’m currently working on the script for #2).

I talked to Jon …

    is it the story where the dude gets his penis yanked off at alien party as a prank? i hope so.

  2. Ha! It was actually a different one, but I think I might try that one too. Or do you want to do it?

Remora song, Extreme Lost Kisses, Art, Web Ratings, Dreams

So I don’t know if the song I have been talking about is going to be used on the comp or not. It is perhaps a bit sub-par to me & not really fully realized, but probably ready to be …

Digital Comics, SuperHaters, Ads, CD Order, Dreams

Did some research today for trying to find people who distribute digital download comics & I didn’t find nearly the volume I’d expected. Maybe because Google already started to remove them from their search results (they announced a couple weeks …

    YOU CAN SEE THE FUTURE, can’t you?

    so… is this the way kids do book reports now? AWESOME!

    i’ve wondered the same thing about bloggers. i think they just quit. they’re super amped to do it and then realize how much work it is, and give up. then they have a relapse like “i can do this! i just messed up before!” and then they blog again and instantly remember how much work it takes and quit again.

    for the Super Haters thing, it doesn’t have to be February. in fact, i think my March guest writer is already lined up and i probably don’t need a guest for Feb, so the next first available month is April.

    • Yeah, I’m not sure of the quality of schooling these days compared to 20 years ago & it seemed pretty lax & crappy.

      I suppose a lot of bands are like that too. They put out a good record & then find out how much work really trying to make it as a band is & they fade away. Then they get laid off & the band gets back together & goes on tour….

      A Super Haters plot – “You should start a band called Third Eye Blind!” “That name is already taken.” “I know, you could totally gain interest from their fan base.” “I think that’s illegal to use another band’s name….” “But if I just gouge out your third eye, it’s an accurate description! They can’t fault us for that!”
      Okay, not sure it really works….

    I LOVE IT! I’m copying it out of your comment and putting it into my “super haters guests” Google Doc for safe keeping. Now stop writing these all in public or you’ll ruin all the jokes!!!

  3. You can keep that one as a freebie. I’m going to do a week long narrative Rip Kirby style for my guest spot…..

  4. Nick Marino says:

    hahaha is it wrong that i had to Google “Rip Kirby?”

  5. Nah… I think I’m pretty much the guy most interested in golden age comics in our circle of comic book makers. When I occasionally tell that to reviewers, they understand my stories better….

Remora Recording, Digital Comics, Cheap Hitmen

I finished the recording of the Remora song for the WikiLeaks comp & sent it in.  I realized after programming all the drum parts that the song has half as many notes as when I recorded the demo on my …

    i think the digital comics to pirates idea is a good one. scans daily is a popular site… ummm, hmmm i only know about scan daily nowadays!

Recording.

I got in a mix from Brian McKenzie for Remora’s “Protector of Builder of Airplanes” that I’m pretty pleased with.  I need to stop fooling around & finalize things & release that record.

I’ve been thinking a bit lately about …

    remember when you played in that band burMONTER. that was a pretty shitty band situation…especially in regards to rehearsing. When i watch footage from the last couple of shows (King’s electrofest eventhough we weren’t an electroband for example) I’m surprised that we were like yeah this is cool.

  2. I’m scared to listen to burMonter because I know I’ll lose the fond memories. Though I did see the live video for “Carousel” five years ago & I thought my guitar racket was still up to snuff….

    • GoddakkAttack says:

      that siouxsie song was one of the best things we’ve done….maybe even better than the siouxsie version!

      from a catalog of like 30 songs we probably should have just kept 7 of them.

      • 1 in 4 songs being keepers isn’t a bad ratio. I think a lot of bands 1 in 10 is a keeper. Even more bands 0 in 10 are keepers. I do think at least the two of us are better at not bothering to release the bad songs than we were 15 years ago….

Sons, Friends, Azalia Snail, Wikileaks, & Vigilant

Went to see my son Andrew do his new show tonight.  Drone-icana?  Banjo, folk, looper pedal, & ebow.  It was cool.  Not quite ripe yet, but he’s going on the road with it for a couple weeks & I feel …

Blogs, Comic Assembly, What It Is, Robot Fighting, & Dreams

Finally found a little plug-in for WordPress so I can see how many people are looking at the blog.  So far after it being on for a few hours it looks like I should have left the blog on MySpace …

    am i the only one that reads this?

    also you should have him program the robot to be a substitute for his dead gf. maybe moreso with a personality simulator and not about doing it. But that reminds me you should check out the movie AirDoll….about a sexdoll coming to life and leaving her owner to make it in the real world/find a bf/job etc. . . .

    • If I’m reading my stats correctly there are now about 20 readers a day on the web & about ten folks who get it emailed to them. A long way from the 350 of 2.5 years ago. Maybe that decline & the decline in MySpace & the decline in webstats & the decline in sales are all related.

      • GoddakkAttack says:

        probably. also i think the wave of the future is to never have to leave your home and interact with other people. You should see if you can make FBook embedded radio casts.

        also my storyline up there i just remembered is sort of like an episode of the original BattleStar Galactica when one of the characters was stranded on some moon with only the crashed cylon that he repaired to keep him company. also sort of like that movie with tom hanks and the volleyball.

        • I forgot about that BSG episode, but it sounds familiar. There’s that old Twilight Zone story like that too. The prisoner chooses to stay in solitary confinement with his robot bride over going back in with society.

          The problem with relying on Facebook is the same problem as relying on MySpace. Except I already know that FB is worthless & I did think that MySpace was useful in 2005.

          If I could earn enough money to interact with less people than I do, it would probably happen….

Mainly Recording

I feel like I got a lot done today.

I assembled a few copies of Remora’s Mecha as I’d run out of them & I had one I needed to get out.

I got the stems off for Remora’s “Protector …

Working on Music

Worked a bit on some keyboard parts for The Pointless Forest.  Looks like I’m going to be going with the SK-1 through the Nanoverb as it sounds good & is fairly compact.

On the Poit comic I ended up writing …
