March 10, 2017 - Newspost
Yeah, yeah… I know today's comic is a bit heavy handed. I'm not in a subtle mood.
I had written an incredibly wordy newspost as a companion to the comic, but I think my 4 panels above contained more than enough words on the subject of the CIA / WikiLeaks revelation.
This week flew by quicker than expected. Thank you yet again to Tobey for adding a cameo of Mr. Battles in Saturday's King of Slackers comic. I'm assuming I should be thanking him for his portrayals… they're not always flattering.
A couple weeks back, I asked for some new podcast suggestions. I hate spending time with people, but occasionally like to hear the sound of human voices. I had run out of my usual programs, and needed something fresh to fill my ears. You readers did not disappoint. Here were some of my favorites:
The Dollop - Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds discuss weird historical items. Dave reads a well-researched story while Gareth struggles to follow and improvise along. I've heard them chat about everything from British comedians to horrific shark deaths. It's best to listen to these oddly informative yet wholly trivial stories while running errands, as it's fun to randomly burst out with laughter in public. When this happens, people generally stare at me. It's probably creepy for me to stare those people down while finishing my laugh, but it's the only way I can enjoy anything anymore.
My Favorite Murder - Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark gleefully exchange stories of horrifically brutal murders and serial killers. This one has me double checking the locks every night. I hope no one murders any of my readers in the near future, but if they do, I can't wait to hear about it on this podcast.
The Alexandria Archives - Nicole Jorge, Uri Sacharow, and Aaron Rehdactedd bring us a bizarre combination of horror and comedy. It reminds me of old episodes of Outer Limits and um… Addams Family? It also reminds me of death and the incredible humor of that subject. Just go listen.
If you have other suggestions for something I might enjoy, perhaps something that doesn't involve death, let me know!
