I've just noticed, (after how many years?) that we have ten followers that follow the TAG website. Rolling over their icons I don't recognize any of them. Who are they? Friends of some of you guys? Random people who found us by accident and like to listen to us talk? WHO ARE DESE GUYS?

left- I think old "Jungle King" has been picking his fights a wee bit cautiously.
right - With one uncharacteristic misstep Molecule Boy entered the Sidekick Hall Of Shame.
left- "Collins! I've rethought some of my assumptions about dynamic data retrieval!"
right- After years of never hoisting his fair share of the load. justice comes Randall's way.
Some of my ebay sales, people wanted extra bit of random stuff like game promo paper etc. That got me into the dust bunny area of the shelf for archived-in-sleeve ring binders. This is just a bit of some of what I came across.
One of Jeff Watts first flyers. Me as a gag cartoonist on a strip I called The Underlings.
And a Computer Edge cover.
All this stuff is about mid late 90s.

This Vacate thing.
I'm hard at work packin and sorting.
I realize I have about 10 days before I'm actually booted out by either the Park or the old Lady and her Lawyer.
But that also means I no longer have to live AND WORK close to Culver City.
Anyone with a job in Seattle-San Diego-Burbank-Portland.
Mike Christian. Hook me up with Google.
I can put the stuff in storage and come to work. Come back for it later.
I'm ready for a new horizon.
Actually have a little wiggle coming from Boulder which I hope pans out.
I think my angst and depression are draining a bit.
UPDATE-I'm in a a wait it out mode. No fire is being effectively lit under me at this time.

This version.The Monster was very Wrightson. Just all about bone structur. Very little scarring. It was mainly gray-dead skin color. And the skin texture was crumbly in appearance.. The story was the best I've seen at cramming all the main points from the book into a good film.

Being threatened with eviction by the woman that holds title to the house.
Preparing for that action to occur.
Going to get a little gas money, pack a light load of my dodgy possessions, and go back to Oklahoma.
I may stay there as long as my Mom has left.
And if I have any juice left, I'll head for Austin. Maybe.
Having juice left is the big question mark.
Not really too depressed by it.
I've been leading a half life for 3 years.
I may get very focused when I get back to OKC.

Ellis, receveived my Goodson art and H.G. Welles' "Time Machine" comic--too bad Toth didn't make an effort to capture Rod Taylor's likeness--they needed Mort Drucker to handle the thing!
And you must keep us updated on your Ellis-y status--use the comments of this post to do so. Caring minds want to know!

Let me attempt to lighten our mood with some doodles I whittled while watching TCM (with the twin inducements of family coming to stay and the Summer Olympics, we finally broke down and signed up for cable again).
My Grannie and I sat down to watch the old Fred Astaire/Cyd Charisse musical, "The Band Wagon." Lots of laughs and luscious technicolor!
On the plus side, there's Oscar Levant (tho' not enuff of him), and an array of period faces from the theatrical troupe. Also the disturbing "Triplets" number where Fred, ham-bone Jack Buchanan and Nannette Fabray do a dance on their knees dressed as infants (see right, bottom of page). Strange and cool!

But one day early on, the founder suggested we share opinions on famous artists. The thread commenced with an invitation to defend a John Buscema Conan sketch--and before you could say "By the hoary beard of Krom," the discussion devolved into mouth-foaming and invective. (70-plus comments within a few hours befouling my inbox). Oy, vey!
I drew this as a humorous epigram for the whole episode, but didn't have the 'nad to post it.
Holy smokes, it's September. Guess I better get to work on that TAG Comic Book story!!
