So, I guess I basically have two things I sincerely like doing.
Cartooning (you can call it "art" if that makes you feel better) and playing music.
I feel like I'm making strides on the cartooning front everyday. Slowly, but surely. I've got ideas and a real desire to make things happen, and if a lot of the comics I'm reading these days are any indication, talent is in a distant third place after those two. I'm aware that that sentence is completely depressing, but I might as well get mine while I can, right?
That leaves us with the band thing.
I'm sure you've all heard me bitch and moan on the internet about how I want to get a band going, but nothing happens.
I just don't want to be in a shitty band, and I think I have to move away from Memphis to do that.
I mean, I feel like there was a point in time when we were the only band worth a damn in this town, and since we've dissolved.. not much has changed.
I'm sure there are bands playing out around town now that I haven't heard, so until I do, you guys are excluded from my "shitty bands" list, but I feel like I already know the only people who're worth getting involved with, and it doesn't look like I'm ever going to be able to do anything with them.
Isn't there anyone else in this town that likes Electric Six and Superdrag? Sloan and Judas Priest? OK Go and Sweet? Andrew WK and Van Halen?
Is there nary a soul who wants to play music that makes people feel good and put their fists in the air?
I mean, all I wanna do is rock.
Am I really so alone in that desire?
So, yeah, I guess I'll see.

Here's an old Mr. Fantastic I did with a guy named Nathan. I've been trying for the last 10 minutes to remember his last name.
I drew this way back when, because I think someone asked me or I asked myself what kind of Fantastic Four cartoon would I like to see. All I can tell you is if they did a Fantastic Four cartoon that looked like this, I would watch the hell out of it.
Why have I posted this old pic of Reed?
I'm glad you asked.
There's a new Comics You Should Own up.
I'm going to suggest you go check it out.
I'll tell you why.
You need to check it out because the comics being discussed are Fantastic Four #347-349.
Hopefully, some of you already know where this is headed. Hopefully, some of you see those numbers following that title and immediately have a smile on your face.
The story contained within those 3 scant issues is and has been one of my all time favorite comic stories since I was 10 years old.

An old Batman I just recently decided to finish.
You may be asking yourself what made me decide to post this picture today.
Well, I'll tell you.
I just watched an episode of the Super Friends where Batman and Robin had to escape Solomon Grundy's grasp using "the Bat-Lube".
The first little doo-dad on both of their belts shot out "Bat-lube".
This was the same episode were a sea creature was repeatedly referred to as a "water dinosaur".
I would argue that cartoons don't get much better than this.
