So as you may have noticed, or may not have, more recently my posting here has become more sporadic. This is not as much due to general ennui and malaise as it is trying to experiment with stand-up comedy, which is a much bigger time drain than I realized. But it is nice to see an instant reaction to jokes, as opposed to a like here, a retweet here, an upvote here. I’ll try to post M-W-F when possible, but things may just be less reliable for a little while until something gives.
As you may or may not know, a couple weeks ago the hosting platform for my comic, ComicPress, updated it’s software and all my stuff on here got super messed up! But with the help of the developer and me nooding around on the site, I have made things ALMOST back to normal.
The most important thing is I migrated all the old comics, and it appears more or less like it used to. The beloved flaming logo is smaller and I’m not sure if I can embiggen it, and some things just look generally weirder… but it’s a start.
The google analytics has been down, and the archive listing also got completely shot, so I’m trying to rebuild it, in pretty pretty colors, but it may take some time. After all, it requires I add a separate link for each one of all the comics I’ve ever drawn, one by one. If you are or know anyone is a programmer or code-knowledgeable person who wants to help, please don’t hesitate to message me! Otherwise, just hang in there!
Exciting things are on the way! What things, you may ask? Nothing, that’s what. I think that’s kind of exciting on an existential level.
Oh, also I started drawing a Jewish humor comic called Chutzpah! Now I don’t have to post those jokes here, so Turbo Sloth is now more shiksa-friendly. Chutzpah updates Tuesdays and Thursdays, meaning I somehow tricked myself into drawing 5 days a week again. Yay?
Okay I don’t actually have T-shirts. But I am back, and have working internet after moving to the beautiful, exciting town of Hartford, CT for my internship. I had a long, maddening correspondence with Comcast, but if it wasn’t that way, I suppose it wouldn’t feel like an authentic Comcast experience. I think my enraged tweet (Note: “Enraged Tweet” would NOT make a good band name, don’t get any ideas) sums it up pretty nicely.
“I SWEAR TO GOD I’M GOING TO RIP THE EYES OUT OF EVERY COMCAST REP THEN WRAP THEIR OCULAR NERVES AROUND THEIR NUTS & KICK THEM IN THE OCUNUTS”
They told me that I would have to wait another week for internet but I found a way around that, and, well, here I am. So enjoy your regularly scheduled comics and whatnot.
In a few hours, I am leaving for a weeklong service trip to Panama! I’m not sure how updating will be, but I have at least made a feeble attempt to queue up some comics while I’m gone, even though I’ll admit they’re not my best. But hope you enjoy them nonetheless and regular comics/updates will resume Thursday April 25th.
