For all you Tumblr peoples we now have a sort-of mirror over there feeding these delicious post nuggets right into your dashboard. You asked for it (two people), you got it. This was made possible by this super Jetpack plugin from WordPress which is also allowing these posts to automatically get publicized to Twitter too. I don’t know. Maybe that’s annoying? Well anyway. A few of you wanted the meat feed on Tumblr. So here is where you find it:
There is still no easy way to import the existing meathaus.com blog’s archive into Tumblr with out a bunch of programming crap so you can forget about seeing all the years of old posts over there, but they still are all still here for your browsing pleasure.
Once again, I must warn you out of NSFWness to try to remember not to accidentally go to plain old meathaus dot tumblr because that is someone’s “spank bank” of beefy nude dudes, unless that is what you are after. We are meathauscomics dot tumblr dot com.
And do you remember when meathaus.com was pre-blog, pre-2006? We’ve had a website since 2000 or so. We had a load of layouts we went through including some fun Flash ones in the early 2000s. I found this weird and cool layout file above that is similar to what Meathaus looked like at one point when I taught myself some basic PHP to go along with my HTML and CSS “knowledge” and hacked together a whole website with a backend for each of our members so they could update their own comics and pages and bios and stuff. I was so excited about it until a bunch of people just installed loads of backdoors and bank phishing scams on our server. Bunch of ruiners. Just because I didn’t bother to learn anything about security too. Oh well.
I remember, in the days before podcasts and easily accessible online streaming, visiting Chris McD and Farel at the old SVA radio booth. It was a funny little room, and back then, the station basically broadcast to absolutely nowhere. I don’t know if the Your Dreams, My Nightmares radio show is broadcast from the same funny little room or not, but either way, host (and talented artist) Sam Weber has put together a really impressive roster of interviews with a wide array of artists, like Jillian Tamaki, Mike Perry and Tomer Hanuka. The podcast is available on itunes and soundcloud.
To get you in the mood, here’s a great piece by Jillian Tamaki, with a link to her interview…
