New Growth

Well, It's nice if this is what happens to you.

F*** the Circus


You don't have to watch it if you don't want to (though it may be less upsetting than the videos of savage Canadians beating baby seals to death; or the one of the soulless slaughterhouse workers stomping live turkeys to death; or the one with the cow who was unable to stand up; or the one with the pig...; or the one...). No one likes to see intelligent, sensitive animals smacked across the face with a stick and have bullhooks driven into their flesh. It's more fun to see them do demeaning tricks for some A-hole in a ringmaster costume!

Anyway, just thought I'd spread the word. I'll resume the funny drawings in a minute.

I know, I know...even the ghosts are getting bored with all the blog posts I've done about them.

Well, here's another one-- it's kinda short.

Yesterday, Nina was in the kids' room playing with them, and, as you may know, it's Summer here, and it gets pretty hot, even by late morning.

Nina: "We need to get you dressed."

Cooper: "Mommy, can I wear something warm today?"

Nina: "No, you should dress in something cool because it's so hot."

Cooper: "But, Mommy, I'm really cold."

Nina went over and sat down next to him, and she suddenly got goosebumps because it was so cold where he was sitting. Spoooooky!

KK Reference

Hey, this is my 600th post. It lines up neatly with the 10th anniversary celebration of SpongeBob SquarePants. So, in honor of that, I'll give you glimpse into WHAT IT TAKES to make a cartoon. I made this little cheat-sheet to help out with the drawing of the Krusty Krab.

This, of course, probably belongs to Nickelodeon, so don't use it to make money.

I Sing Pretty

The question I get asked more than any other is, "Sure, we see that you like to draw, but are you able to improvise lyrics and carry a tune?" Well, my answer is, "That's up for interpretation."

Anyway, here's what this is: For the past 9 years or so, my friend and coworker, Tom, has periodically gathered together people from work to have "jam-sessions" at his house during our lunch hour. The participants in this ritual are hardly ever the same group from one session to the next (variety being the spice of life, and all that). The quality of musical talent varies greatly, but usually the resulting recordings are somewhat listenable. The music (and lyrics-- all of it) is totally improvised and unrehearsed-- right on the spot. The participants usually switch from instrument to instrument, and to microphone, between songs. Whatever gets recorded is whatever happens in the moment. It's kind of a cool idea, isn't it?

This song is from a jam session that occurred a couple years ago. The song is called "Alcohol", and the "band" is called "Tomorrow's Regrets." On this song, Tom played bass, Jay played drums, Brian played guitar, and I did the, um,
singing. Enjoy...but don't use it without permission from Jerk Records.

(Click anywhere on the above text to download the song. I hope this works, let me know if it doesn't.)

Look What's Here...

It's a great way of looking at the world and all the things in it. "Look what's here that wasn't here before!" Everything you see, compare it to the VOID. It will restore your sense of wonder, you dried-out husk, you. Where there could have been infinite lack and utterly cold emptiness there is instead THIS. Whether it be an anatomically incorrect-but-sort-of-passable drawing, or a leaf, or an automobile-- there it is! It IS. It has sprung forth and defies the emptiness. Appreciate it, thou introvert bag of dread and secret horror! Take a moment out of your puny stage play and bask in the mystery-- behold even in the mystery of your stage play!

Who cares what it means? Look what's here that wasn't here before, or might NEVER have been!

Think good thoughts, OK? (And, I did put my phone number on the original flyer. I just removed it here because I don't want to get phone calls from whatever Anonymous Trolls like to stop by Kenny's Korner).


Here's a drawing I did a couple weeks ago.
