On a quickie break…
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…
Hey I posted this on facebook but I’m not against meeting some local weirdo digital duplicator enthusiast strangers either, so:
Project idea: I’ve got a 20+ year old Risograph in the garage here in Mt Airy, Phila., PA. I’ve got 6 color drums! I bought all of it off a gas station manager out near Limerick, PA for three hundred bucks and risked life and my dad’s life to move that beast down her cat-crappy stairs. She may have threatened us with a butcher knife as she demonstrated how to close the drum with a trick I’ve since forgotten. We laid the money on the bed and trucked outta there. Maybe I was scammed, maybe it never will work. Power goes to it, I’ve got the masters that are supposed to fit. But one side of the master roll needs a roller-flange-thing to hold it up to roll in straight. A pretty simple but essential part. I’m thinking we have to 3D-print or build it out of something. Another thing is I can’t close the damn color drum drawer any more, I was able to last year, but now I can’t. Anyway, there’s so much potential if we could just get it working. If you want to help figure it out and get it working, of course you’d get to print on it forever as much as you wanted. I also have a b/w only digital duplicator down there too. That one worked and then I forget what happened. Probably will work again, but it is basically just a glorified but lower quality photocopier with just black ink.

It was a good time, there was an ice cream flavor there from Little Baby’s made just for the show that was really crazy because it tasted like sweet creamy avocado and mostly green apples but it also was apparently made of kale, celery and some chunks that I didn’t understand but enjoyed. It was good to see and catch up with Farel, Jeffro, James Heimer, Pitzer, and Marra, Aulisio, Rugg, Lex and to meet Piskor, Mok, Box Brown, Bodie and Czap and more dudes and ladies who I’ve just known through this blog. I’ll try to post some of the books soon along with this large stack of letters from you comics friends from all over the world.
The show was also a success for Meathaus moving a load of books out of my place into your various arms at super discount deals. A bunch of those “Real Life Wizardz” posters and Lenny’s Summer Job zines I pushed on you as bonuses as well. Good time and good job by Locust Moon except the show was scheduled to run too late for my old ass and should be more like 10am or 11am to 5pm or 6pm or something in that range I’m thinking. Also I did feel bad for the four tables stuck back near the restroom. That shouldn’t really be a spot. But it looks like the show could use more space then. Next year keep the ice cream and bring on the hoagies this time and maybe some brews too. Oh yeah and bring back Farel again it was super to hang out just like olde thymes.
Everyone in the greater Philadelphia area should head over to Locust Moon to browse and buy books. They are fully stocked with a Meathaus stash now too.
The Locust Moon Comics Festival is today, free ($5 donation suggested), and Meathaus will be there including Farel. I’ll sell you some books at in-person mega-deal prices. We’ve got some GO FOR THE GOLD!s, Meathauss, Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Books, my new Lenny’s Summer Job comics zines, “Real Life Wizardz” posters, and a few copies of fancy coffee table art books I design for Rizzoli/Universe for sale. Look at all these exhibitors who will be there.
