FULL BLEED: AND WHEN YOU FALL

Little catching up to do here. Meant for this to be a weekly update thing, but I’ve already botched that. Maybe I’ll talk about my trip to the Lush show in San Francisco and how it’s nice to be a grownup sometimes. Of course, you have to put up with a lot of unrelenting […]

FULL BLEED: THREE-LOBED

Good news. I’ll spare you the kind of entry that I’ve been doing for the last several months. Tell your friends. No serious issues here. Nope.

Instead I’ll talk a little about my experiences going to three different, even very different comic shows in the last month and a half or so. Long Beach […]

FULL BLEED: BENIGN NEGLECT

Ready to put summer well behind me. The last several months have been asphalt on the tongue rough, and seemingly unending. When you’re in a grim situation and it seems like it’s always been that way and like it will ever be this way? That’s exhausting in a way that’s tough to describe.

That […]

FULL BLEED: WHERE DID I LEAVE THAT FIRE?

I didn’t come up with that phrase. Neko Case did. She’s a better writer than she’ll ever get credit for. At least I assume that. I don’t read record reviews or thinkpieces, though I’ve been known to read histories (oral and otherwise).

I mean, she wrote the line “I wanted so badly not to […]

SIX-FINGERED HAND

I was gonna go with “Six Act Play” but the other one sounds so much cooler (and is a nice callout to one of my favorite DEFENDERS runs from when I was a kid.)

So let’s talk a little about structure. It’s a thing that I’ve been thinking about, trying to figure out how […]

I NEVER HELD IT AT THE RIGHT ANGLE

Genre is a trap you shouldn’t fall into too hard if you can avoid it. […]

THE NEW BLACK

Time for a change. And this is an easy one to make.

Let’s us be honest for a moment. Blogs aren’t something done to build an audience with these days. They’re value-added. So when folks can’t get […]

SAN ANGELO BOULEVARD

Taken 2004

So last week was the whole preview for THE LAND WILL KNOW, right? Yeah, I know. I should keep better track of what goes on at my own weblog, but the fact is that I have Twitter, several Tumblr blogs, a minor Facebook page as well as what goes on here at […]

THE LAND OF PUSH AND PULL

 

Your perfect soundtrack for thist post. Just loop it.

I managed to trap myself yesterday, pretty bad. Not gonna bog you down with the personal details that you’re not really interested in, but last week was no damn good. This week not so much either. Let it all catch up to me, or […]
