Just want to invite everyone to Comicon this weekend, where there will be an extra-special sci-fi comic extravaganza written by Mav and drawn by me. Also, if you come at the right time there will be babes in tiny silver skirts.

If you can't make it, you can still check out our website or buy the book at Indyplanet or the superspecial edition at Blurb.

This girl is actually very cute, but her face is challenging to draw. I left out the ones where I made her look really ugly.

On a completely unrelated note, I have a headache and a strong desire to burn things.

I have a new musical website. Sort of. Still have a lot of work to do. To make it less than completely pointless, I've uploaded a new song, which features the lovely voices of theadana and sundaygray and seems to be popular among ultimate frisbeers.

Check it out.

Blahrr. That was so not as good as it made me think it was going to be. I blame Orlando Bloom. Last night I was writing an in-depth review in my head, recounting all the ways in which the movie could have been but was not awesome, but this morning I don't really care.

Oh well. At least Naomie Harris is still hot (black teeth and all). And there was a pretty sweet trailer attached.

There is no such thing as "Facism."

It is not a real word. And if it was, it would likely mean "hatred or intolerance of another face or other faces" and not "a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism."

Kindly learn to spell.

You're only pretending it's an issue because you can't find the answer to the question everyone's really asking: Is he actually planning an eventual and obviously insane switch to a 4-3 defense?

Happy birthday to me!

I'm pretty much committed to liking this movie now, mostly out of spite. Optimus Prime having flames on his paint job (unlike, say, Greedo shooting first) is not "raping my childhood." Michael Bay may or may not be a good director, but he doesn't deserve death or even death threats just because Starscream looks kinda like a monkey. Really, people, get a grip. The movie might still suck (in fact odds are against it doing otherwise, just because that's the way things tend to go), but if so it will probably be because of bad writing, not because the Decepticons have insectoid features.

Also, I enjoyed the two Bay movies that I actually saw (Armageddon and Bad Boys). So I am optimistic.

I may, in the past, have spoken kindly of trains. I may have even recommended them. I have memories (very vague now, and I'm wondering if they were planted there by hypnosis) of a very pleasant train ride to NYC to see a Dream Theater concert about eleven or twelve years ago.

I was wrong. Amtrak sucks. Really sucks. Sucks like few things suck. Taking Amtrak is about as smart as getting out of the boat. Don't do it. Not if your life depends on it. They will let you down.

Ow, my back.

11 days till my first gig in ages. The music will be an eclectic blend of experimental electronic hip hop drum and bass dance punk trance funk, and will include some wigglific synthy bits as requested by Jill and a secret surprise song for Connie, whether she believes me or not. Fragile back and sleepless nights notwithstanding, I'm having lots of fun.

Also, my hair is short. Do not be alarmed.

The cats are up to something

Posted on 2006.06.20 at 13:54
Last night I had another dream with a bunch of cats. There were only five or six this time, not a thousand, but this nonetheless is further confirmation of my suspicion that the cats are up to something. And it's not only happening to me. Jenn recently reported a dream of many cats, as have others. See that one issue of Sandman.

The cats are invading our dreams.

Maybe large quantities of cats are something people just dream about, some ancient archytypal symbol, but I don't think so. Looking through my library of such things, I can find no reference to the phenomena, except (and this is really stretching) for the idea that cats have nine lives. There is more research to be done, but it's looking to me like this a relatively recent phenomena, possibly first evidenced in The Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath.

All of which begs the question, what are the cats up to? I have a feeling it's not good, as Jenn's cat Midas is currently walking on my keyboard trying to prevent me from completing this post. But I need more data.

So please, if you have any dreams, hallucinations, obsessions, etc. involving large quantities of cats, kindly describe them and send them to me. If you have three cats, and your dream is about your three cats, then it's probably nothing out of the ordinary. But if you see two or more cats that are unfamiliar, I'd like to know about it. Maybe we can figure out what they want and make peace with them before we're all being batted around like mice by colossal feline god-kings.

Looking in the mirror last night, I noticed three whiskers in my beard that were black at the ends, and white the rest of the way to the face. I guessed the white portions represented a couple weeks of growth. Extensive forensic analysis indicates they lost their color with approximately 1:26 left in the fourth quarter of the Colts game.

Only problem is cheetahs don't fly. jameel suggests a shark, which could also work. Need to work out some kinks, because I think Troy is more Gundam than Transformer, and I don't have as much experience with that style.

Now of course I've got Steelerbot ideas out the wazoo...Ben would be a piece of highly mobile artillery...possibly a tank. Parkerbot is a sportscar, maybe a Ferrari. Hines and Randle-El are, of course, triple-changers. And the offensive line? Five bulldozers who combine to form...um...Pocketron, or something...whatever his name is, he's friggin' huge.

So I had this whole saga of not being allowed to draw naked people because not enough people sign up for the class and it gets cancelled.

Class started again today, but I took my sweet time registering (figuring no one else wants to draw naked people) but suddenly, EVERYONE wants to draw naked people and the class is full. Gawd-demmit. But at anisodragnfly's urging, I did not surrender, but instead displayed uncharacteristic persistence and went to the museum godawfully early this morning to see if maybe they'd cut me some slack, since i've been so persecuted in the drawing of naked people department. It took about three words to convince the lady in charge, who was very cool. And bam! I got to draw naked people.

(plus bonus Steelers photos!)
