Thursday I write about unbelievably amazing events!
Many amazing things happened this week, and many amazing things have YET to happen as… time is linear.
Number One: We went to a wedding in up state New York. WAY up state. A place called Ithaca. Here I am being best man as the lucky couple takes their vows. During the Ceremony I learned that the groom likes to write songs for his cats. The less said about that the better.
I used to live in Ithaca and thus knew a few people at the ceremony. Here’s Richie Sterns, a member of the world famous Horse flies playing music for the reception! I’m a fan.
I used to dance in giant mud pits to him and his band at festivals. The less said of that the better.You can check them out on this you tube link! You may see me in the audience:
Hell, buy their music! http://www.funkyside.com/store/index.cfm/category/17/the-horse-flies.cfm
Here I am talking to comic scribe, Roger Stern about how one day I will make the world safe for “him and his Amish brethren.”
Roger knows way too much about Weird Al.
The less said of that… Like I said, AMAZING things.
Number Two: “Twisted Savage Dragon Funnies”
Myself, Michel Fiffe, Simon Fraser
and many, MANY other artists worked on this book.
We all gathered to sign it last night at Jim Hanley’s Universe
It was a mad rush! I wore my hand out signing so many books.
Thanks to all who came out!
Number Three: Hera! By George O’Connor! Amazing!
He’s having a release party for this, the latest of his
Novels chronicling the Greek Gods and I may even be there. Details about the Bergen Street party right here:
Join us on Saturday, July 23rd as we celebrate the release of the
George O’Connor’s inspired and awesome OLYMPIANS series,
Hera: The Goddess and Her Glory!
George will teach a kids comics-making workshop – you will learn how
to create your very own Olympian! Then join us later that evening for a
bacchanalian release party where we will lift our glasses and congratulate
George! (drinks will be served – togas will be optional.)
Bergen Street Comics
470 Bergen Street
Between Flatbush and 5th Avenues
4-6pm Kids Comics Workshop
Number Four: Last but not least, Swifty Lang, Michael Lapinski
and Chris Mangun have this little book known as “Feeding ground”
they’ve been working hard on. The latest issue is on sale this week
and has a pin up in it by me. I present it below for your viewing pleasure,
but go out and buy a copy so you can cut it out of your comic and pin it to inside of your closet door.
You know you want to.
Sadly, next Thursday will be unable to compare to this, a truly AMAZING Thursday, so don’t even bother coming back then sniffing around here for the same gold nuggets I blinded you with today! Not going to happen.
