Coffee Bomb, much cooler than…cooler than Radio Bomb

By adminThursday - February 22nd, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

As I turn on the burner to heat up my stove top coffee maker, I realise that I may, in fact, be setting the timer for a bomb to go off.
It all started when I noticed my coffee pot was a bit grimy, so I started cleaning it, scraping off all the cooked on coffee (this is on the outside of the pot)
Then I started scrubbing near where the seal was for the coffee maker…the only problem was that the seal was black and the grime was black, both had the same consistency….so at the moment I may have a coffee maker with no seal in it..or a compromised seal. Which, given the nature of the coffee maker means that it has a possibility of blowing up.

So, if someone is going to be at an Ikea in the next little bit…would it be possible for them to pick me up a another stove top (espresso machine is what they call it) coffee maker? I can pay you COD, or arrange a meeting place where I give you the money for the machine…

Fishnets For Peace of Mind

By adminWednesday - February 21st, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

I felt unsexy.
There was really no one but myself to blame for that one.
After years of dressing to catch attention, I went the other route.
To the point of being dowdy.
Tonight I dressed to catch attention once more.
I caught it.
Not only did I catch it.
I felt comfortable with it again.
This obviously bares repeating.
I have much to prove to myself.

The Joys of Cleaning….Images…..

By adminSunday - February 18th, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

If I have to look at the inside of tents, or treelines anymore….
It’s sad to say but I think I actually miss my days of image cleaning the bookshelves.
Isaac & Lee….I miss you…I won’t keep you much longer.
Brain…being sucked out slowly…..
Must go and get some form of candy or something…

The measure of one’s worth

By adminWednesday - February 14th, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

Success can be measured in many different ways.
For example I am often told by others that they are making a certain amount of money. To the point where they are able to live comfortably and get things they’ve always wanted.
This is good and I am happy for them.
Then there is me. I am usually struggling to get by.
Flying by the seat of my pants.
Hoping things get better.
But in the meantime?
In the meantime, I have self-published two comic books, am working on a script for another and preparing to publish two more.
I am doing what I’ve always wanted to do.
I feel successful too.
Struggling, but successful.

The Diary of a Comic Book Creator

I have an insane craving for Yam fries…I’m not really sure why.
Out of the corner of my eye I keep on seeing things, like the Sock Ninja moving around on my desk.
I may have spent too long in front of the computer without a break.
Naaaaah!

3:12 AM February 12th 2007

As I am taking out the garbage and getting some fresh air to clear my head, I look down at my feet and see that they are leaving a vapour trail of energy.
Clearly this is a sign that I am brimming with creative energy which must be put to use!

5:18 PM February 13th 2007

After taking a day off from making comics to enjoy them. I am now back at it….for a little while anyway. I’ve got a few hours until I am scheduled to leave. But I will keep plugging away. My brain is completely fuzzy right now….more coffee…right!

Sounds Reverberating Silence

By adminSunday - February 11th, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

I have over-saturated everyone with my presence.
Therefore, for the next little while there will be radio silence.
I will be reachable if you need me…but only if you need me.
Otherwise…..

Enjoy the silence.

Prove my point

By adminTuesday - February 6th, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

Don’t take it personally.
Nobody would make as big a deal out of it.
Yeah…

Clutch on to it tightly until it crumbles in your hands….
Or let it trickle through your fingers.

No win.
Made my decision though.

The Wagner Warmachine

By adminSunday - February 4th, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

For those of you who don’t know.
At about 11am this morning, my monitor blew up.
It had been making clicking sounds and flickering for a couple of months now.
The person who loaned it to me told me it was dying, and I understood this.
So this morning while I was watching a show, the monitor made it’s familiar clicking sound and then went black.
Permanently.
Now, I have a lot of work that I need to get done in the next little while.
So this was completely unacceptable.
I was pretty sure that I had at least one monitor in the storage room….
But before I searched for the possible monitor, I felt it was best for me to take a time out and just do some other things.
Like laundry.
For those who haven’t seen my storage room it is about 4 1/2 feet square and stacked with stuff (about 6 ft high).
And where would you suppose the monitor would be?
If you said at the bottom of the pile, you would be correct.
Very scary to say the least.
So now my apartment looks like a warzone.
But I have a cute little 15″ monitor (AT old school-style).
Which is something until I can afford a decent monitor.
Sometime in March perhaps…..
At any rate, I have an apartment to clean and a headache to stop (stupid monitor).

Late night advice and announcements

All you mothers out there, please take this advice…

This would be what I look like when I am about halfway finished yet another last minute ashcan comic.

I think this is an accurate reflection of my plans….

And I didn’t even bribe them….

By adminThursday - February 1st, 2007Categories: Uncategorized

I got a review….one of my comics made the magazine “Broken Pencil”.
The mini-comic.
Forest Through The Trees….
It made the list….
And the review….
Was good!
I-I-I….
Damn it I’m going to celebrate tomorrow.
