What is happening to my Meathaus you might ask. Well not too much just getting a little design refresh building off the default WordPress themes that can do way more than I can figure out how to do. Anyway they’ll also regularly get updated and become more powerful and secure whereas my old tweaked themes just got older and disintegrated slowly as I chopped them up and ruined them in fits of meat-destruction. Wow, why not buy a copy of the full color Meathaus SOS book to celebrate. Also look at this Thomas Herpich artwork that wasn’t in the SOS book. Perhaps it was an alternate cover option? Amazing.
Robin and Brandon and friends are trying to fund this Ink Studs road trip with your sweet cash, but they will be sending out stuff with neat doodles in it, you know the drill, here’s the Kickstarter page. Including our very own Meathaus SOS that big shiny full color book that Brandon co-edited. Check out what they are up to.
Someone asked for a list of who has been in Meathaus comics so here is a photo of all the table of contents/names in each issue. That’s issues one through nine, top to bottom. We really didn’t give a crap about editing, punctuation, or spelling your name right. Or I should say we didn’t give enough craps to get any of that right.
I just remembered that people start buying stuff around this time. Which also reminded me that I bought all the back stock of Meathaus SOS so it would be available as long as the book stock holds up. My goal is to get these books into your hands all over the world, not have them sit in the basement. Also same goes for the other back issues of Meathaus that constitute the New Olde Pack. I encourage you to check out the BUY page and get an eye-full of this SALE. If you don’t have Meathaus SOS yet, then you should get it now. It’s like 50 or 60% off or something. It’s $12.95 plus shipping. Not the $30 plus shipping it was yesterday.
Kathie writes Meathaus:
“Hello, I am writing in an unusual case … Some time ago, I used your services, and one of your employees face was familiar to me. At dinner with my wife, it turned out that he was a burglar, who 5 years ago broke into our home!!! This is ridiculous!!! How you can hire criminals? I found at least 3 bad entries for him at website for background check!! I am sure there are more!!! Please do something about it, things like that are ridiculous!!!”
Thanks for taking the time to write Meathaus, Kathie. I was thinking about what you wrote and how you had to take the time to put it into our contact form and send it. Besides it being absolutely batshit nutballs, I was wondering, what could you possibly want? One possibility is of course that the Internet, churning full of crazy, has by chance spewed forth a tendril which came in contact with our contact form, like a wild bolt of lightning to a looney rod. Despite my mixed metaphors which I wont even bother re-reading, I’m fairly certain however that Kathie, you have a darker purpose.
Your reply email is a gmail address, nothing especially suspicious there (like if it was email@example.com or something). So your game must be multi-tiered. Could it be that your scheme requires a reply from an honest sucker trying to do right by you, his customer? After which, what happens? You ask for bank account information to transfer four million dollars of a dead prince’s heirless fortune? Just let me know what you want, Kathie. Let’s talk it out. Just be real, man, and maybe we can have a beautiful friendship after all. And wait… did you eat dinner with the burglar, or just remember him later at dinner?
On a quickie break…
Locust Moon Fest. C U THERE. I’ll have some Meathaus comics, Go For The Golds, Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Book, a few copies of books I designed, Farel, Jay, D-pi, Jeffro will be there. Meathaus S.O.S. will be on super-sale. Also I’ll have my new micro zine Alien Pets. There is a Meathaus panel discussion at 4pm at the Locust Moon store too.
EDIT: This was yesterday, thanks Locust Moon for another fun time.
Here is your plan for this Saturday, come to the Locust Moon Fest at the Rotunda. Jay Lynch and Kim Deitch will be there! Some good old Meathausers will be there too. And we are going to discuss Meathaus at 4pm as one of the panels, come hang out. If you prefer your info Facebook-style, there’s this page too. Bottom photo by Kyle Cassidy.
Oh yeah and I will be selling Meathaus S.O.S. our biggest, most full color, kick-ass issue of Meathaus at incredible bargain-butt-basement prices, and good in-person deals on all our other books too. Will I bring enough? Who knows. And who will watch our table when we’re all talking at the panel? Who knows. See you there.
Hello people, apologies for the outage in your regular Meathaus blogging service. I’ll just say that it involves three TV shows, some software, two books, another website, a trip, some 3D renderings of retail environments, and blah blah bah.
Hey, while you wait, take a look at this image stash. I’ve resisted linking to beefapartment.tumblr.com before because I contribute next to nothing new on there. It is just a reblogging tank for myself, a personal reservoir of eye candy. I believe the kids today call those “inspiration blogs.” But they’re just like a-holes, everyone’s got one. And once you’ve seen one… But since I haven’t posted for so long here, “check it out!” Go straight to the archive view if you prefer, I know that I often like that better than the infinite scroll view on the front page.
As far as warnings go, there is nakedness, funny and cool horror, some comic violence, but no gore. As far as tumblr etiquette goes, I think I’m doing it right… All the information from reblogs is still on each post, you just have to click the little bar that comes up over each image to investigate the source.
Did I ever mention that you shouldn’t go to meathaus.tumblr.com? I mean if you are looking for Meathaus content that is. If you are looking for man-on-man porn, then by all means, go ahead. We should have grabbed that URL sooner.
Hemorrhaging visitors like it’s 2013… man take us to the emergency room–what, is the era of the blog island over now that everyone is their own tumblr dashboard curator? What about RSS feeds, who likes to feed on those? Drawn.ca tanked even though those guys had like 12 authors or something. I bet they were facing what I’m facing, being really busy. I’m not quitting on you…no worries about that. Just think, now the meathaus.com club you are in is even more exclusive than ever. We’ll get through these rough patches together. Hold me…
