So long time fans of QRD may remember that it used to somewhat regularly contain short stories that were generally one or two pages & one of the primary contributors was Patricia Russo.  Well, she just got a collection of …

Sam Kieth, Built, Twilight Zone, John Stamos

I don’t know how many of you remember The Maxx (comic book & later a cartoon on MTV in the 1990s); but I just read a thing where Sam Kieth (the guy who wrote & drew it) nonchalantly mentions drawing …

Remora Remix, Built, Car

Did some work on my remix of Remora‘s “My Brother’s Guns & Knives” basically just adding some bass & harmonica.  Still fun.  I was working on the mix on headphones & had the bass up really loud when I …

Max Ernst, Pow Wow, Rough Day, Silbeer

So I reviewed one Max Ernst’s proto-graphic novels over on Finally Checking It Out.  I may be less sure than ever about what makes a comic after reading it.

I got an artist interested in drawing my new comic …

Comics, Computers, Breaking Bad, Dream

I got some work done on some comics today doing layout on the scripts to deliver to artists.  So I’m feeling like something good is happening with my idea of pushing up my content creation level.

I moved a bunch …

    Hey Brian, after my old HD died I installed GSmartControl to determine the health of the new one from time to time. It doesn’t run in the background nor it has any sort of autorun or whatever, so it does not consume system resources.
    It’s also free application (GNU GPL), check it out:


  2. I probably should get something like that. To be honest I never really think to scan a drive unless something squirrelly is happening. I suppose I should do it as routine maintenance.

  3. Nic says:

    It doesn’t need any scans to check drive’s health, Brian. It simply reads S.M.A.R.T. data from your HD – just in case, check S.M.A.R.T. on Wikipedia.

    When you open the program, it immediately collect all the info about your HD’s health.
    If you move the mouse over a value it shows a balloon tip with its meaning.
    It can also do drive scans (quick or complete) on demand if something wrong is shown from the S.M.A.R.T. data analysis, but that’s not the program main purpose nor the normal routine.

    It doesn’t even add any registry key to Windows – so you can uninstall it completely without issues.
    It’s a safe application – The only problem I ever heard is about using GSmartControl with Samsung F4 EcoGreen drives (HD204UI, HD204UI/Z4, HD204UI/UZ4, HD155UI, HD155UI/Z4, HD155UI/UZ4):

Royalties, Jon DeRosa, Ads

    isn’t this what BMILive does now? well maybe not producers but for performers.
    I still can’t figure that part out if they’re only collecting when you play your own songs or if say our drummer plays the show does she get paid as well eventhough it’s not a song she has writing credits on.

  2. I’m pretty sure the money goes to the songwriters/publishers with BMILive. I never signed up for it because I really haven’t been playing shows since they have it. How much do you get for a show? $5 extra or less?
    You know what’s funny is I remember needing to fill out all this paperwork on one of my Euro tours with my setlist & BMI info for every show & I never got money back from it.

Last Night’s Dream:
I’m at a friend’s apartment & I realize it’s the apartment complex where I used to live with my ex-girlfriend.  We are walking up to the local bar & I see my ex walking back from the …
