The Visitor at the Door

Adam sat at the kitchen table. His elbow firmly planted on its surface, hand of the same arm holding up his head. A sigh escaped his mouth as he slowly blinked.

“I’m so bored.” He drew out the so.

“Nothing ever happens around here,” the twelve year old said to the empty room.

Minutes ticked away.

Three loud knocks came from the door.

SiouxperCon 2017 Part Two: Hey! I Didn’t Make A Fool Of Myself!

Or did I? Meh, probably.

Part one HERE.

The guests at the con were a darn fine line-up of talent and as cool as everybody was, I think even the other guests would say the top of the heap was the multi-Eisner award wining creator of the fantastic comic Fables, Bill Willingham! If you haven’t read Fables, you should.

SiouxperCon 2017 Part One: Who Needs A Savings Account, Anyway?

Good lord, I’m still exhausted.

I, for a change, crawled out of my isolation chamber and ventured out into the world in which I used to be a regular citizen. Fandom.

The second annual SiouxperCon was held on May 12th, 13th, and 14th at the Best Western Plus Ramkota Hotel in Sioux Falls, SD and even though I haven’t been to a convention in, yeesh, twenty plus years, it was a smooth slide back.

The Great Possum Fire Of Aught Three

Let me just start off by sayin’ that havin’ told this story a time or two already, I expect you havin’ a question or three and maybe doubtin’ the whole scenario. Well, let me alleviate those concerns and assure you this is not a tale of fiction. And if by the end you still want to challenge the veracity of my tellin’ we can have that conversation afterword. And depending on your tone that may or may not involve the rearranging of your nose and or teeth.

ARTS! I Gots Some!

The last few years I have had woefully little new art in my life so I am rectifying that. And here is some of the stuff I’ve picked up.

First, something I have posted about before but I finally took it in to be framed. A fantastic piece by my art school classmate and across the pond buddy, Jen Dixon. The bulk of Jen’s current work is abstract and this is no exception. “Dragon’s Teeth”

Jen is also now doing online art classes on Skillshare. You should check them out if you are looking to work on your artist skills.

And here is a piece by a citizen of the Hub City, Aberdeen, SD. Nick Fischer’s “Mars Patterns.”

Nick and Nicole Fischer’s work can be found here and both are part of the SD Artworks Coop Gallery in Aberdeen where I acquired this.

More recently I picked up this at Artworks, an encaustic collage by Lois Beckner, “Dead Men Walking.”

Rachel Kahn is a professional illustrator and creator of the fantastic web comic “By Crom!” The premise of the comic being Rachel’s spirit guide through life is a certain mighty barbarian created by Robert E. Howard. I have two risograph illustrations from Rachel, the first one being from “By Crom!” and the second being the a powerful wizard of chronomancy, “URMYXI.”

And finally, a bit of mass produced art that I couldn’t pass up CAUSE IT’S A BIG OL’ OCTOPUS! Cephalopods. They are awesome.

I haven’t been in a position to support art in a while so I am pretty jazzed to have possession of these works. There is so much great stuff out there I hope you grab some art from your local talent pool and from not so local when you can.


Hey, It Still Exists!

Despite my lazy ass barely updating this here smidgen on the web, it continues to be. And despite the lack of activity here. I am still plugging away at whatever the hell it is I’m trying to do with my life.

I’m setting a goal of a post every week for the summer and I hope you five that still check this place out on occasion (hmm, wazzat? Down to four? Oh, ok) will feel free to give me a hard time if I don’t stick to that.

So watch this space for something new next week and in the meantime, here is a picture of a three legged cat:

The name is Sucha. As in, “This cat is sucha pain in my ass.”

The Hilarious World of Depression

“A show about clinical depression… with laughs?”

John Moe, former host of the late great and sorely missed radio show “Wits,” is here with a new podcast exploring the world of depression through the lens of comedy. As a member of the first club and a fan of the second, it just seemed like something I could get into. And it is.

First episode is with another favorite of mine, Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s “Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!”
