Chrismas Goodies

Heya all,
Christmas has been good to me this year. Over on the Comics Price Guide Forums, us undergrounders had a little Secret Santa thing going on. Good ol' Over40Artist sent me Real Pulp Comics #2, Terminal Comics, and Promethean Enterprises #5. Sweet! He also sent me the poster for the 3rd Underground Comix Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, done by Dan Clyne. Had to get that one into my poster book right away. I also sent out my Sir Real Coffee Mugs to all of the participants. Merry Christmas, all!

I also received a rather unexpected present from Evert Geradts, who just recently added a new item to my Vanity Page. Evert does this story series, "Mynga and Ramzy" for the magazine "Hello, You!". It is designed to help young Dutch children learn English. Check it out, Evert drew me in making a guest appearance. HOO-HAW! Check out the two pages (left and right) where I make my appearance.

I'm in saddle-shoes????

Can't Do It This Month

Here it is, the 18th of December, and I still haven't done this month's video show yet. And it looks like I won't have it done anytime this month, either. This time of year is just way too busy for me.
I will have it done for January. I've already got the subject ready. I promise to have the next episode ready for the first week of next year.

I've Got My Own Troll

Somewhere along the line, I've picked up my own little enemy. I don't know where he came from, but he really has it out for me, bad-mouthing me in all the places he can. Both of them.

Anyways, here's what I think happened. There's this Stumbleupon guy that goes by the name of Erick Wessels. Like a lot of people on Stumbleupon, he hot-links pictures from various websites to display on his little "look-at-me" page. As many of you know from my previous rants, hot-linking the images on my site will only get you the...

I think Erick tried to hot-link one of my images, and got my chastisement picture. This upset the little Neder-weiner, a lot. He reviewed my site, calling me an asshole. He then comes over and signs my guestbook, again calling me an asshole. He even got his little girlfriend to sign my guestbook unflatteringly, too.

Of course, I'm guessing at all this. If its not the hot-linking issue, then I don't have a clue as to why the little Dutch-dick has a burr-up-his-butt for me. Funny thing is, all of his linking to my site has really increased the number of people hitting it, and giving me good comments and feedback.

Hey Erick! You wanna straighten me out as to why you're so hostile towards me? Or are you just gonna start calling me names again. Pretty boring, if you ask me. If you're going to insult me, at least try to be clever about it.

I've Been Whammied

Bad things happen in threes, right? First off, it's the Holiday Season. Being an adequate pianist with the ability to read music, I'm in demand this time of year. I'm also part of a small drama/acting group, so that keeps me busy, too. Therefore, any free time to devote to my hobby is a rare thing, indeed.

Next, my home computer system fried last week. It was either the power supply, the motherboard, or both. In any case, I can't seem to revive it. I knew it was going to happen sometime. It was over seven years old anyway, with a very outdated OS.

I'm waiting for the third shoe to drop.

As a consequence, my video show is going to be delayed about a week. Speaking of the video show, I'm working on a new intro sequence that I'm very pleased with. I can hardly wait to start filming.

I'm also be getting a new desktop system later this week. One with a bit more oomph. I can hardly wait for that, too.
