I see no reason to fight when we can stand around and talk, really.

"Have you heard the news? The dead walk!"

August 25th, 2010 by

Repeating the opening lines of NoMeansNo's havoc-tastic song "It's Catching Up" -- indeed; the dead walk.

Uh-oh.

Here's why: writer Robert Kirkman is bringing his excellent, wrenching zombie comic book series The Walking Dead to television with the help of Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont.

Most excellent.

The premiere episode is slated to hit on Halloween. Set your recorder.

Better keep on movin'. And with due speed.

Here's the trailer for the series:

And for good measure, here's NoMeansNo's "It's Catching Up."

MARGA IS STRAPPED TO THE BACK OF A TIGER AND TAKEN OUT OF THE CITY.

This picture is boggling on so many levels that I end up just kind-of blearily loving it.

ZWN commented "This seems kind of unnecessary."

Yes.

Not usually a good sign.

I'd hope that Matt Fraction made it.

Excellent comic strip Pictures For Sad Children escapes into the outside world

June 5th, 2010 by

Pictures For Sad Children is an excellent, sometimes terribly sad, most-times painfully funny comic strip. The writing is singular, and the subject matter is often dark dark dark yet it'll unerringly strike chords with you-the-reader. Recommended.

And now it has escaped into the outside world.

1: so how's your quiet desperation going? 2: shhhhh

From PFSC's site:

decided to give this a try, it is about 5' by 10', it is strange to work very large

Do You Know What Today Is? It's a Fuck You Friday.

May 21st, 2010 by

It's a Fuck You Friday.Do you know what today is?

It's a Fuck You Friday.

That's right, a Fuck You Friday. Every Friday is.

This is inspired by Achewood, the incredible work of Chris Onstad. Achewood is a comic, and a series of blogs, and in fact, a series of fictions involving most formats that involve printed matter -- including cookbooks, zines, and paintings.

Onstad's immensely moving/horrific/sad/hilarious series is one my favorites, and one of my inspirations. There is nothing that better captures the spoken cadences of Northern California better than Achewood. It is a difficult canon to explain yet marvelously easy to recommend. Start at the beginning and just keep reading 'til the characters start finding their respective voices... then by that point, you're hooked.

We honor Onstad, and we honor Fuck You Friday. In the words of Ray Smuckles, "[T]ake old Fuck You out for a spin today. You'll be glad you did! Take care, and... fuck you!"

Here, now, is the original Achewood that began this-all. From 2005/01/07, this is the original Fuck You Friday:
