Drunk For Your Amusement



For years now, I've wondered who the next Bill Hicks was going to be. As things grew more and more grim - I mean seriously, I think we've surpassed the Reagan era now on the cosmic WTF! scale - I wondered if maybe we would have no more ranting, fool messiahs because the meter was just fucking broke and we've all become too whitebread and insecure to recognize the rallying call if it comes. "COMEDY IS DEAD, GO HOME, GAME OVER."

There are times when being proven wrong is the best thing in the world. The other night I was stopped dead in my tracks by this man. He made me want to pick up three of the bad habits I'd managed to kick, and start up about twenty new ones. Most importantly, he made me laugh. A lot.

If you're looking for the first Altertube roundup of Esozone vids, look no further. Foolish People's Dead Language, I assume, is going to be up shortly.

Vignettes of Philly

Some of the scenic things I've seen so far in Philadelphia:

1. In center city, a dog with what looked like a bullet wound vomiting and shitting blood.

2. A crazy lady with a single tooth praying to a shopping cart. ("Dude, I've tried that. It doesn't work. You have to go in to the store.")

3. Adolescents on crotch rockets with sub-machine guns. (And I admit, that was at 50th and Lancaster, so I was pretty much begging to get buzzed by them simply for showing my gawky ass up in that.)

4. Some distractingly hot barristas.

See, I'd say that's not quite a good showing... but the incredible matcha green tea latte tipped the scales. And though I was buzzed, I was not shot- so the verdict: PHILLY IS A-OK. Just don't forget your kevlar fubu hoodie.

The Internet would not be nearly as fun if the real world actually made a bit of sense.

Esozone 2007

Esozone... Well, shit. What can I say? It was entertaining, a hell of a lot of fun, and even sometimes educational. You can color me surprised. Expect video coming through greylodge and possibly Alterati in coming weeks, and hopefully more video popping up elsewhere-- please, anyone who was there, send me media. A big thank you to everyone who helped organize, or who was there.

I'm sitting at the Portland airport now, preparing to head home. Still not sober so, yes. It was that kind of week.

Thoughts of moving to Portland in the future?

Yes. I'm sure more on that in time, as well.

Chins and Beards (part 1)

Rudy Rauben has lived and died a few lives, from the sound of it. In a previous incarnation he once served as art director, graphic designer or illustrator for a variety of magazines, including Dragon, Amazing Stories, and Reality Hackers. You may have seen some his of illustrations in collectible card games like Magic: The Gathering or the H.P. Lovercraft inspired Mythos.

This time around Rudy is back with a new graphic novel called The Medicine Show, and another one in the works.

He first contacted me out of interest for Mythos Media, we got to talking, and quickly realized we actually had quite a lot to discuss. I’m going to be sharing some of those conversations with you, wherein we touch on everything from the I Ching, internal Kung fu and the artistic process to bizarre times at Reality Hackers and experiences working for TSR and Wizards of the Coast. article.

There’s more coming up after this half hour audio as after discussing the Butcher album Auricle, Ray went on to discuss the photography work Camella has done with Robyn Breen as Spiraleyes. Transcript of that part of the discussion follows after the jump, but first, here’s the audio portion of the interview: article.

Holy hell.

So it was just pointed out to me that there is a pretty major, and dumb, typo on the front cover of the Fallen Nation comic that we gave out... That being "Welcome to the Apocalpypse."

What I find amazing is that it was shown to several hundred people, and was edited through three people, and no one caught it, until now, after 450 of them were handed out to people at comic con.

So if you got one, enjoy your "special edition."
