I was asked to appear on Tom Racine’s “Tall Tale Radio” podcast last week. Tom was raising money for new podcasting equipment and was interviewing a ton of people during a 12-hour marathon. So, I agreed and popped in for 12 minutes of fun and laughter. You get to see my original bass guitar and hear about the future of the comic! So, put on the headphones and spend 12 minutes listening to Tom and I ramble on. (Oh, I’m sorry about the 30 second commercial they force you to watch at the beginning)
Many of you may know, my wife is suffering from severe issues with her hips. She has been diagnosed with severe degenerative arthritis in both her hips. It was discovered last year and she was scheduled to have surgery to replace both her hips. At the last moment, they discovered she has an allergy to the alloy Nickel, which the replacement hips are normally made of. So, that cancelled that surgery and she had to undergo a huge bank of expensive blood tests to determine if *any* replacement hip device would work. Thankfully, she has been told she qualifies for ceramic hip replacements.
The bad news, is the doctor who specializes in this is booked for quite some time. But an end is in sight, even if it is not until the end of the year.
I come today to you all for some help. As a self-employed person, I take responsibility for my own financial issues. But in this case, my wife has been denied even the most basic of health insurance coverage due to her Lupus condition. Oddly enough, the Lupus has *nothing* to do with the arthritis, seems this condition was just a fluke for her. Anyway, the testing and medical bills have been extraordinary. Times are extremely tough all over, and it saddens me I have to reach out for help, but it is in times like these when you need assistance the most. So, I humbly ask for your assistance.
BUT! I am going to give in return. I have set up three levels of “gifts” for those who help me out. Let me explain:
LEVEL 1: Four for Four eBook sets. This is all four of my current eBooks from 1977. Any donation of $1.00 to $24.00 receives these for free.
LEVEL 2: Custom Avatar for you! For $25.00 to $49.00 donations, you’ll get a custom avatar for you to use. These are fun!
LEVEL 3: Single Character Color Digital Commission! For any donation of $50.00 or more, you will get a commission of any single character you want. Does not have to be my characters… any character out there. Let me know the pose and the character, and I’ll draw them in my style!
I am grateful to all of those who have already helped out. Know that even a dollar makes a difference in times like these. Thank you for your considerations! My wife will be extremely grateful once she’s back on her feet! If you have any questions, simply email me at email@example.com.
Yeah, there are shoes in that shot… They’re built on ELEPHANT DUNG! Now there’s a “What the Frak?” moment if I ever saw one.
Now, a roommate of mine once had an elephant turd in the apartment we lived in. It was sealed in lacquer or something and it sat prominently in the living room where all guests would pick it up and once they found out what it was, immediately proceed to toss it back at my roommate. Luckily it was sealed hard as a rock!
The reason I post this image, besides the glorious ass, is I had just told the elephant turd story to someone on Twitter just today and what do I find when I Google “elephant dung”? These shoes. The image is linked to the site where the photo comes from so proper credit is given. Don’t want SOPA closing me down. Yeah, like a site about Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll isn’t already on some DEA’s “watch” list. Goofy government.
A tad NSFW but well worth it.
Now, I’m a cynic at heart nowadays when it comes to stuff posted on the internet. This is a set up for sure. So for those of you who have stopped staring at her ripe breasts, let me tell you why this is a set up.
First, she’s not wearing her shoulder straps. The driver, if he’s any kind of pro at all, would NOT let her ride around strapped in so loosely. Second, she’s a good actor at the end looking down and going “Oh, my boobs are out!” with her expression, but she’s acting none the less. True, maybe she was scared shitless and didn’t notice the wind blowing across her bouncing boobs, but I doubt it. Most women are very protective of the “girls” and would notice if they were bouncing about like that. Third, her blouse goes from being buttoned at the bottom in one shot to fully open in another. This, my friends, was no accidental “oops” my boobs fell out moment.
But, I have to thank whoever set this up as it’s one helluva a video for sure and has brought a few moments of joy to my day as I’ve watched it many times to “study” it for this post. You’re welcome.
Here’s my follow up on Wizard World Chicago Comic Con.
As it was my first ever Wizard World event, I was not entirely sure what to expect.
First, it was tremendously easier to get in and out of then C2E2. I just pulled up to the dock on the side, loaded my crap on the cart and rolled in. They had a parking pass for $43 for the entire weekend with In and Out privileges (a big deal). Thus, there were no huge lines anywhere to get in or out for vendors. And there were over 400 artists in Artist Alley as well.
The big “con” to this con was it was mainly an autograph event. Huge names in the movies/TV were there, but they were all UP FRONT and there was NO motivation for folks to walk the through the floor, especially all the way back to Artist Alley. With C2E2 they had guests along the sides, forcing people to walk the entire floor, and thus we had more visibility.
