It likely already applies at least to some degree for both cassette tapes and videocassettes, as both are no longer being made en-masse and generally only appeal to niche markets.

Last year bloggers pondered a rumor that Dick Cheney might even be on her client list. Through Daniel's psychic connection, Palfrey's ghost finally stepped up to the plate, and gave us an answer.
Sort of. Her ghost continues Such information would be nothing more than an assertion — hearsay — because Daniel does not have access to my personal records from Pamela Martin Escort Services.
So legally speaking at least, naming more people could be dismissed as fabrication to sell the book and Daniel couldn't prove it unless he could obtain my business records The grateful ghost couldn't leave her psychic channel facing a libel charge "or possibly even worse.
Madam the ability to see into the future. It will also be discovered that love can be both amplified and transmitted exactly as if it were radio waves sent across the planet By Year such an instrument will be nearly as common as are cell phones today. But the book doesn't end without answering the obvious question: What's it like being dead? And in the strangest twist of all, Daniel's book has given the story of Deborah Jeane Palfrey something no one ever expected to see.
A happy ending. Most of what I have seen here in the afterlife is just absolutely, positively remarkable; it's called Heaven for really good reason! Madam Speaks California Cults Scientology Fugitive Arrested Dead Woman Blogging Archie's band recently confronted mp3 pirates, as the year-old teenager struggles to adapt to digital technology and a changing world.
Yes, 67 years. Archie first appeared in — the cartoonist's mother was a Ziegfeld girl in the s — and the characters were based on teenagers the cartoonist knew in the s growing up in Northern Massachusetts.
But now that he's approaching 70, Archie has started flashing around the latest technology in his plucky comic book digests. There's web sites, text messages, mp3s, and file swapping — all pushing a new image for Jealous Veronica Lodge is still badgering Archie for looking at other girls — but this time, she's using a massive network of her technologically-enabled conniving friends, all armed with cell phone cameras spying on Archie.
It's the cover story for July's issue of Archie comics — titled One Click Away — and Archie tries to jam Veronica's mobile surveillance by wearing a disguise from a costume shop. Though then the girl he's pursuing just shouts "Steer clear of me, weird-o" and whacks him with a shopping bag.
And Reggie's still a big sneak — but in February, he teamed up with a hacker named "The Serpent" to swipe the answers for the math teach from Mr. Novak's computer. According to Archie Digest Magazine his first message was a full-screen image of Veronica, barking "How dare you use this computer to find girls!
Why I oughtta That fateful afternoon when Archie and his gang lost their innocence came in Archie — when they discovered that their music was being pirated.
The story's called "Record Breaker," and it shows Archie dreaming of launching an online downloading emporium. We're bypassing that whole system to reduce overhead We'll get paid directly per download! Archie's music career was over before it began, apparently doomed by his failure to implement an infrastructure for harassing Riverdale's music pirates.
The story ends with Archie and Jughead sadly going back to their day jobs at the burger joint, now working double shifts to earn back their money, and abandoning the band altogether. But then again, Archie's been working there since Roosevelt was President, cracking jokes he inherited from his father's vaudeville act.
But there's one voice in Riverdale who might understand — and it's not the school principal Mr. Ron Dante was the real voice for the Archies, singing on all of their records and at least once even performing as the voice of Betty.
At 63 years old, he's watched the music scene change — and in a interviewDante shared his thoughts about online music. In a world of fluff and filler songs, "you'll see the really good stuff rise to the top of the Internet at some point," he predicted optimistically to Cosmik Debris magazine, "and people will be able to judge for themselves.
It's a revolution. It's going to change the world of music as we know it. We have to go through this. Instead of ten billion, it's thirteen billion this year. I love Rush. With such evergreen success Rush has been playing the same venues since I first saw them … inwhy does going to a Rush show still feel almost like sneaking into a NAMBLA convention? But I suspect it has a lot to do with the amount of baggage that Rush carries with it.
The mythology of this legendary Canadian trio is fed almost as much on misconception as it is on their worthy musical achievements including multiple Grammy nominations and rabid fan base.
Thematically speaking, Rush never were a sword-and-sorcery band, though that perception thrives among the unwashed. They did use sci-fi narratives, but only to advance a larger theme, as demonstrated best in their seminal album,where futuristic elements are dwarfed by the Ayn Rand-ian perspective. Rush is a heavy metal band. It seems unlikely that these two misconceptions could co-exist in the popular culture terrain, and it is.
However, I have heard both of these assertions made, and not just by the average yahoo, but by the media below-average yahoos. Obviously age is a factor in determining which false statement you subscribe to.
I mean, you could also call it afro-funk if you wanted to, but whatever. I dated a girl last year who, to my amazement, was into Rush, and proclaimed it so defiantly my big toe jumped up in my boot.
She dumped me because I smoke too much pot. Go figure. I remember the claim being made that you're more likely to spot RU Sirius in da club with Young Jeezy than a black person at a Rush show. This made me understandably self-conscious given my sensitive liberalitude, so I made a point of looking around at the last couple of shows and was relieved to see some color in a sea of pale flesh.
I mean, there are probably more blacks at a Dave Matthews concert, but then again there are more white people at a Michael Franti show, so again, go forth and figure. The aforementioned ability of Rush to tinker with their sound is one of the things that endears them to their fans.
And while Lee has spent the last 25 years proving he could also emote with more warmth in his voice, one could argue it still dogs the band.
So let it be known that when I see my favorite band at their stop at the Sleep Train Pavilion! But 33 years later, is he part of the problem? That's what Armond White is suggesting in a 3,word essay arguing that Ebert's "TV glibness" misses the meat of movies. Critics today discuss movies "simply as entertainment" detached from their moral and political context, White argues, and internet bloggers are compounding the problem with an elite hipsterism which is "diminishing cultural discourse.
Instead they'll only endorse dishonest films like There Will Be Blood or Gus van Sant's film about the Columbine shootingsthe kind of movies White describes as "irresponsible," "pseudo-serious," and "sometimes immoral or socially retrograde.
For example, when Premiere launched in the last year of the Reagan presidency, it focused on box office receipts "for that era enthralled with tax shelters, bond-trading and pro-trust legislation," and the magazine ultimately "perverted movie journalism from criticism to production news.
It breeds a new pinhead version of fan-clubism. Unfortunately, the "post-Tarantino cinema" requires critics to reach for the esoteric in a kind of grass root elitism. Ebert asked Kael if she watched his show, legend has it, and Kael replied dismissively that "If I wanted a layman's opinion on movies, I don't have to watch TV. When the web was young back inEbert wrote a column for Yahoo! Internet Life with his reviewing partner Gene Siskel assessing the movie information available online.
Some will be pure invention. A lot of it will be advertising Earlier this month year-old Ebert made headlines when he announced he'd return to writing movie reviews after a series of health problems, though he'd forego a fourth surgery which would restore his ability to speak. Every year I keep meaning to include "Joe vs.
Ebert writes honestly that the movie "was a failure in every possible way except that I loved it. Did White launch his argument at the wrong time? But I am trying to clarify where film criticism went bad. He frequently praises films that almost all other critics have drubbed, such as Little Man, Sahara and Against the Ropes.
He often focuses a large portion of his reviews to attacks on the critical establishment He is also frequently accused of being an aggressive pop culture writer who lends intellectual legitimacy to commercial product.
The entry also notes dutifully that White "pioneered the case for the music video being one of the most significant postmodern art forms" and authored a book on the life of Tupac Shakur. This will appeal mostly to fans of standard rock biography Searching for references to White's article turns up exactly one — the snarky sendup it received at Defamer.
The clash in the late s shook the band leader, America's most famous square, and he confronted the raging turmoil in a series of shocking performances — at least, according to these five videos. Thirty years before American Idolparts of America were still uncomfortable with the very idea of rock songs even appearing on television, especially during Welk's squeaky-clean song and dance show.
And since The Lawrence Welk Show ran for three decades, these videos suggest the ultimate long, strange trip. They're a window in time, capturing a bizarre never-world where the hour-long show actually surrendered happily to the coming onslaught of rock. Sweet Jesus Yes, "Dale and Gail" are actually singing about the excessive use of marijuana: the devil's weed, the great satanic corrupter of our youth — and the counterculture's intellectual lubricant.
Welk really did trot out a year-old rejected Miss Oklahoma contestant to croon a shockingly wholesome rendition of "One Toke Over the Line.
Nearly 40 years later, the clip ignited a new controversy. Tom Shipley, one of the drug-friendly song's original singers, uploaded Welk's version onto YouTube Everyone Who Believes - Various - VBS 2001: Son Creek Junction (Cassette and nearly immediately, it drew over comments.
But when accordionist Myron Floren introduces them — there's obviously something that's making him cough. Sucking on a Ding-dong Welk's heroin habit eventually caught up with him, and he was swallowed whole by a voracious counterculture. In a shocking turnaround, he brought in Lou Reed to jam with the show's banjo player, organist, drummer, and orchestra, citing a song which was "high" in popularity.
A remarkable video shows the squares in Welk's audience bobbing in a slow waltz as The Velvet Underground rips through "Sister Ray. This isn't like you at all," you can imagine his singers saying, Album). Though of course, by now you folks know we were only kidding about that heroin habit Stop the Music In a historic telecast, five men in yellow blazers and five women in matching blouses were confronted by "Hippie Welk.
I can't stand that kind of music. The Babbling Baboons. Even if Welk's cast isn't quite sure how to dance to it. While the Velvet Underground video was a mashup, this clip really is from an actual broadcast. It's a seismic shift in America's cultural landscape, as the song's driving beat fries the minds of America for exactly forty seconds. But then Welk's two white "soul sisters" are interrupted by some very unconvincing acting, as two female cast-members complain "Mr.
This isn't like you at all. Meet the Beatles. Drugs influenced the Beatles too, but when they broke up, it was Lawrence Welk who picked up their countercultural cred, turning "Hey Jude" into one of "ten big songs" on his ground-breaking concept album, Galveston. In a surreal moment, the string section saws away underneath a giant golden sign which says: "Geritol. Smoke on the Water? It was almost heroic the way Welk clung to his kitschy schtick in the face of a changing world — his own personal freak flag, flown gloriously high.
Welk was nearly 90 when he died inbut he lived long enough to see another accordion player make the big time, possibly channeling his spirit. In the early '80s, Weird Al Yankovic offered up the ultimate tribute, mixing Welk's "Bubbles in the Wine" into an accordion medley of 14 ridiculously inappropriate songs, from Devo to Jimi Hendrix, the Clash and the Who.
Later footage of Welk's show was even spliced into a video for the hyperactive medley which also included "Hey Jude"creating a montage that's oddly reminiscent of the surreal bandleader himself.
It ultimately proves that given enough accordions, any song can become soul-crushingly square. Even "Smoke on the Water. Tuesday would've been his birthday. But this November saw an interesting coda. A video was uploaded to YouTube showing an audience of high school students baffled by a vinyl record of Welk's polka band performing "Minnie the Mermaid.
But it turns out it was a time capsule within a time capsule, since the video came from a public access TV show they'd recorded for their local cable outlet in the s. An earlier episode featured a video by GWAR. The two teenaged mids hipsters are playing a song fromjust a pit stop on the song's journey to YouTube 50 years later.
The video has been watched just 87 times, but it drew one comment that puts the whole thing in perspective. He'd learned to play the accordion before he'd learned to speak English at the age of 21, and rose from a poor immigrant family to become one of the richest men in Hollywood. But it was his earnest commitment to hokey friendliness that made him a kind of legend. Even if Welk never grokked the emergence of rock music, one YouTube comment suggested Welk had earned some respect simply for the role he'd played for the generations that came before.
For that, I respect him. A James Bond-style theme song rolls behind the opening credits of a new film featuring Adam West as a ruthless criminal mastermind. But its star is Sexina, part Britney Spears, part private-investigator-secretly-fighting corruption-in-the-music-industry.
The ultimate irony? The movie's theme is sung by Davy Jones, whose vocals for The Monkees in the s make him one of the original boy band singers. It's one of 80 wildly original films being screened at the San Francisco's Independent Film Festival, now celebrating its tenth anniversary.
To promote the festival, the organizers even came up with their own bizarre trailer. And Sexina, Popstar PI couldn't possibly be more indie. It's the brainchild of Eric Sharkey, whose resume includes uncredited work as a production assistant on the notorious Glitter as well as Vanilla Sky.
He's written, directed, Everyone Who Believes - Various - VBS 2001: Son Creek Junction (Cassette produced two previous films — though one was a four-minute short about a Coney Island Alligator Hunter Her secret weapon: beer.
The other film, I Got Luckypairs a pot-head with a talking hamburger who can predict the future. In his sexy new movie, Adam West, who was TV's original Batmanschemes in the shadows for ways to overthrow the pop stardom of the film's singing sensation, Sexina played by Lauren D'Avella. Sexina — real name: Maude Jenkins — has withstood all challengers, including a rival singer named "Sir Stabs-a-lot. They should just worship it. She also has the coolest walk, and a great smile.
He's also a robot! The film's crazy mix also includes ninjas, cannibals, a man in a bear costume, and even a brief parody of Barbara and Jenna Bush. Sharkey co-wrote the theme song's campy lyrics. She's every man's dream She's wicked cool and that's a fact, so evil-doer's watch your back.
She'll get you Catch it Saturday February 16 at the Roxie at p. And click here for our list of seven forgotten classics by Davy Jones We parked and walked to the Qwest Arena on the Grove, where the line snaked out and wound and looped around as shown in the above image. Typically, the line was 5 people thick, and I swear it felt like a mile walk from the beginning to the end.
Ironically, the end of the line where we were at was about a block from my wife's parking garage, where we started. There were more than 8, Democrats there and according to the Idaho Statesman 1, people caucused in neighboring Canyon County, and more than 20, people showed up around the state — about four times more than in the last record year, It was cold, and I felt like I was standing in a bread line in the Soviet Union.
I felt sorry for the girl in flip flops and a miniskirt in front of me. But there was a lot of camaraderie! There was no way we were getting in byand Obama volunteers walked the line telling us that everyone was going to get to vote. Eventually other volunteers showed up with ballots, and we voted in the freezing cold. I filled in my ballot on a bus bench shaking my ball point pen to get it to work.
We left and got a cup of coffee. Everyone was talking about the caucus. Some observations: Although they got a bigger venue in anticipation of a record turnout, the state party needed to think through getting that number of people inside. Other doors could have been opened. The Obama people were the best organized. In fact, they were the only ones organized! They were about the only volunteers I saw all evening. I have a friend who got into the building, and he told me that a large area was reserved for Hillary, and no one was sitting there.
Is it Bigfoot? Or a fugitive from the garden of Eden. Or maybe both. The Journal of Mormon History recently published a new investigation into stories suggesting that the giant Sasquatch monster is really Cain, the murderous second son of Adam and Eve. It may not be the first controversy tackled by new Mormon President, Thomas S. But the article's author, Matthew Bowman cites a manuscript describing Hawaiian missionary E.
Wesley Smith "being attacked by a huge, hairy creature, whom Smith drives off in the name of Christ" the night before the mission was dedicated. His brother tells him the attacker must've been Cain.
Inas evening fell, missionary David W. Patten had spotted a figure walking near his mule in Tennessee. His tall, dark body was covered with hair, he wore no clothing, and He said he was a very miserable creature, that he had earnestly sought death during his sojourn upon the earth, but that he could not die, and his mission was to destroy the souls of men. I rebuked him in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by virtue of the Holy Priesthood, and commanded him to go hence, and he immediately departed out of my sight.
On the Mormon Folklore blog, Bowman received an interested response from someone who'd heard Patten's story at the church's Missionary Training Center, "where he was on his horse and eye-to-eye with the standing Bigfoot.
His logic was that God preserved the lives of John the Baptist and the Three Nephites to work as agents for Him until the end of time — Satan did the same thing with Cain thus, the ability Album) live through the flood.
There's already been a controversy about the Mormon church's teachings on Cain. Brigham Young believed that God punished Cain's ancestors, and that "the mark of Cain" was: black skin. The same belief continued through a edition of the church reference book Mormon Doctrineand black Mormons were banned from the church's priesthood.
But at that same time, church president David O. McKay announced that "It is a practice, not a doctrine, and the practice will some day be changed. Kimball, and the church ordained its first black priest in Thomas S. Monson, the new Mormon President, conducted that priest's marriage and sacred ordinances. Eugene England, a professor at Brigham Young University, addressed "the Cain legacy" in a article in Sunstone magazine.
This is a good time to remind ourselves that most Mormons are still in denial about the ban, unwilling to talk in Church settings about it, and that some Mormons still believe that blacks were cursed by descent from Cain through Ham I check occasionally in classes at BYU and find that still, twenty years after the revelation, a majority of bright, well-educated Mormon students say they believe that blacks are descendants of Cain and Ham and thereby cursed Of course, Mormon theory has faced skepticism before, like the blog commenter who opined that "The bible is just a waste of paper and the Book of Mormon is even less useful.
Perhaps one message of the story is that evil is big and scary, but ultimately controllable. That reminds me of the story that I used to hear that the Loch Ness Monster was a surviving dinosaur, thus proving that the earth is not as old as scientists say it is. Uniquely Mormon? But I have heard variations on that one as a way to argue for young earth creationism among Church members back when that seemed to be a hot issue.
Over at Museum of Hoaxes site, blogger Alex Boese couldn't resist making the obvious joke. Even if the commenters at the Mormon Folklore blog add their own twist. I also seem to remember a story about a noted church leader — I think his name was Childs — sitting next to Cain on an airplane and starting up a discussion about the Book of Mormon only to have Cain tell him that his mission in life was to destroy the souls of men, especially the younger generation Hang on, no, wait My bad.
But Thursday Lost returns to the airwaves, and last season's finale was even nominated for an Emmy. Whether the series can recapture its glory, it'll at least provide something for TV-loving geeks to talk about.
And these videos will put it all in perspective. The th episode? Lost will end in three years, after 48 more episodes. But hardcore fans know that the final episode already slipped out last January, featuring surprising scenes with Sawyer, Kate, Sayeed, and Ben. This theory is buttressed by the fact that Kate announces in the video that the first thing she'll do after leaving the island is attend the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, adding that the men attending the show are all "dead sexy.
It's nice to see the cast acknowledging their loyal fans, even if they're also teasing them about the show's mysteries.
This video ultimately captures a final showdown with treacherous Ben played by Michael Emerson, who would later be nominated for an Emmy. In the clip, Ben promises Sayeed "one simple unifying theory" that explains the mysteries of the island.
Sayeed thinks the answer is purgatory — but he's in for an annoying surprise Episode 0 Sneak a peek at a bizarro world where there is no plane crash, or even a TV series — just struggling actors desperate for work The first season DVD holds the rare "audition tapes" that were recorded by the show's actors.
As Sawyer, Josh Holloway is good-looking, charming, and even a little bit younger. But the most disturbing secret of all lies in Evangeline Lilly's audition tape for the part of Kate. It apparently comes from a parallel reality where Jack, the doctor, was killed in the very first episode. It was originally a sitcom about wacky good-looking friends living together on an island.
They frolic in the water in its original opening, their smiling faces showing what good friends they really are. A montage captures their warm moments of friendship — smiling, dancing, sharing peanut butter, and relaxing by the flaming jets from a recently demolished airline.
This video's title is "The one with the Friends spoof" even identifying one of the actors as "Matthew Fox Arquette. Elsewhere on YouTube, someone actually redubbed four full minutes footage of Lost footage with Everyone Who Believes - Various - VBS 2001: Son Creek Junction (Cassette sitcom laugh track. Sawyer's acting class The character of Sawyer charmed Kate, who sees tenderness under his gruff exterior.
But the other castaways usually just see his volatile temper. As the frustrations of island life mount, this remarkable video could be seen as a Lost drinking game gone horribly wrong. If you promised to chug every time Sawyer says "Son of a bitch" — prepare for alcohol poisoning. It's surprisingly zen, a moment in time in which Sawyer's dialogue never changes, though the world flows on around him. Even when he's been captured and gagged, he still manages to snarl out a muffled version of his trademark phrase.
The magic turtle Lost's writers received a warning message about the unsolved mysteries that are starting to pile up. There's that smoke monster, the eyepatch guy, what "The Others" want, the ghost of Mr. But maybe they're more interested in discussing what would happen if Kate and Locke switched brains? The rival writers at comedy site "SuperDeluxe" offer a dead-on analysis of what this show's story meetings must look like.
Hurley's Last Laugh Jorge Garcia was 31 when the writers of Lost created the character of "Hurley" specifically for him. He was the first actor cast, going from stand-up comedian to top-rated TV star, playing the unlucky everyman who regrets ever winning the lottery. But maybe we're all just spending too much time watching TV. Photo by Jeff Marini "This is the reason paper was invented. Give him your money now. Close to 27, copies were sold even before the collection of comic strips had its official release in November and crashed into Amazon's top I'm not sure.
The book's first printing had some errors which required a second printing to fully meet the demand, and Gurewitch confirms that "We are indeed gearing up for a third printing. He's been building to this moment for two decades — sort of. But I was definitely story-oriented. She actually had us making little books around the age of 5 — me and my siblings. NG: Early on, it was mostly pictures. And she would bind them with string. LC: That's adorable. NG: I think the idea of making a book was a really fun thing that was ever-present in my mind.
I undertook a few on my own once I found a stapler. LC: What was in the books you drew as a kid? NG: The same stuff I'm doing now, I'm pretty sure. Lots of monsters, lots of robots, lots of dinosaurs I don't think I've always wanted to be a cartoonist. I've always just been a cartoonist. I've always just been making little stories. LC: Colonel Sweeto shows a magical candy land where the reigning monarch practices some vicious realpolitik.
When I contacted you, I almost wondered if you lived in a far-away fantasy castle of your own. NG: I wonder if most people have that impression.
I love castles. I plan to live in one some day. It's not wrong that you have that impression. I wish it were true. LC: I was picturing lots of monsters, lots of robots, and lots of dinosaurs all scattered throughout the PBF empire. NG: It's a pretty quaint empire. My buddy Evan handles all the t-shirt stuff, and I had a friend helping me out with the prints.
They take in a lot more money than you expect, though I haven't checked my records in a while. Evan was actually my roommate in college when I first started the comic, and he's been writing a lot of the comics lately. He came up with the idea for Commander Crispas well as the one with The Masculator. A panel from "Commander Crisp" Earlier on Evan would come up with one out of four comics, and he's been doing that lately too. And my buddy Jordan is always really good about knowing how I should amplify an idea and he's come up with ideas on his own.
We're all kind of on the same wavelength collaborating, and it's extremely easy. It's absurdist, comic fireworks, and I can't get enough of it. If I enjoy it myself a lot, people tend to enjoy it a lot. LC: Is that the secret reason why you use so many different styles? The strip about Finneas the heroic dog was drawn with acrylic paint, while The Throbblefoot Aquarium switched to the black-and-white style of Edward Gorey. NG: I might be attracted to giving people the kind of response that makes them write in.
That's always nice. I'm not terribly lonely, but its wonderful to hear when somebody recognizes that you've done something very subtle. I like touching people on those levels. So it only makes sense to make references to childhood heroes and artists that I appreciate. LC: You also told the Boston Phoenix. I'll always prefer it. Don't you get the impression that we're getting bombarded by images that are digital?
People often go straight to the digital format, which is unfortunate. I just really appreciate seeing evidence of hard work! LC: Each of your strips always manages to startle me. For example, Hey Goat starts in the winter, but ends after the spring thaw, implying that there's been a horrible avalanche. You even told one interviewer "there's a lot to be said for chaos where order is making things very, very boring.
It really squeezes out the nature of the characters. Plus, chaos is just eye-catching. It's a necessary aspect of comedy and drama that there be some conflict. LC: Does that mean you were a frustrated artist in school? Did you feel high school stifled your creativity? NG: Or the spirits of the students, or the thinking of students. I was an editor of an underground newspaper that we distributed in high school. We ruffled a lot of feathers.
I think I have an FBI record because of it. Are you sure? NG: Someone tells me I do, for certain. A local pastor had seen the work that we were doing in the paper, and he must've thought we were more than the basic renegade kids because he wrote a letter to the FBI. This is right after Columbine, and he thought our paper displayed many warning signs for troubled youth.
He was probably right about that. We certainly were troubled youth. I just don't think we were the type of troubled youth that would express ourselves with guns. LC: Well, wait — what was in this newspaper?
NG: We had a section where we presented fictionalized accounts of our teachers fighting each other, and how those fights would go. We'd show a big picture of them, and then a "versus," and then another teacher. It was really entertaining if you had these people as teachers. Lots of blood, lots of violence. Lets hope they never end up online. We actually published the pastor's letter in the following issue. We also did a word search, and we hid the word "clitoris". It was a point at which we lost a lot of our audience.
LC: So you regret it? NG: It's the type of thing I look back on and see as funny in retrospect. I think I get paid to make clitoris jokes now. But I really enjoy having flexed my mind to the full extent at that tender age, because I think it's really helped me maintain a momentum. College was a little bland, but I think that's why I ended up starting the comic strip — because I was so hooked on my experience with the paper.
I noticed that the comics page at the college newspaper would get a heck of a lot of attention. It only took about a semester when I realized that's where I should be putting my attention, and not the articles about the dining hall. When you entered that contest, where did you think it would lead?
I had no prediction about where it was going. I just knew I appreciated the extra money while I was at school! It was running in two papers when I graduated inso I gave myself a few weeks to see if I could call what I was doing a job. I sent out samples to ten more papers and heard back from about three. I figured that was just as good as trying to get a temporary job in New York City, so I ended up just staying home and doing the comic and operating from a studio space that I rented near my house.
The initial proliferation of the samples was the only time I sent out samples. Since then most papers have just emailed me — because of the web site, I assume. I think the story ends right about now. Because I've still been doing it Spider-Man Theresa Duncan committed suicide in July. But on New Year's Eve, five months after her death, she updated her blog. One week after Theresa's suicide, Jeremy Blake, her partner of 12 years, removed his clothes and walked into the ocean at New York's Rockaway Beach.
Morbid interest in her blog was only exacerbated when, three months after her death, a new post suddenly appeared on her blog just two days before Halloween.
A trip to the ER would not hurt anything. They can at least X-ray Missy and see if anything drastic is going on. I know the place you are talking about. The research rheumatologist told me that the major source of my pain (and I pointed it out to him) was that lumbar/sacral junction where the bone is growing up funny. R.I.P.

Throughout the night, John watched his son and he could see him slipping further into a depressive state. Finally tired of seeing him torn up, he stood from the table, excused himself and stepped outside. He pulled out his phone and dialed a number. "Hey, William, it's me." William Cornelius smiled when he heard his son-in-law's father's voice.
