No VIGIL this Weekend? Que pinga?!?!?!

Hey Folks,due to a DNS issue ( I have no idea what that is, don't ask) VIGIL will not be seen this weekend (Aug 26th and 27th) as the server will be rebooting and changing and some other stuff, says my publisher, Joey Manley:

"I will be kicking off the DNS changeover on Friday afternoon.

The goal is to get all DNS issues cleared up before Monday morning.

You can essentially expect the site to be down for the weekend. It may
come up earlier than that, but I am telling you now: if your comic is
supposed to update anytime between Friday afternoon and Monday
morning, don't count on the site being available to you or your
readers (it may be, it may not be -- most likely, it will be available
to some, not to all -- that's how DNS works).

When the DNS is cleared up, and my own ISP recognizes the changeover
from one server to another, I will log in via FTP, install the new WCN
engine, and the new Graphic Smash will be born."

So the good news is, a new will be born! What it will do exactly, I have no bloody clue, but it's for the best, I think.

I wil be aiming to replace those pages and have a mega weekend on September 2nd and 3rd and maybe before and after I'll see, but keep watching I will be posting.....

uhm.... who didn't know WIZARD sucked?

This is in response to Tim Leong blog about the latest Wizard. It's actually a video blog, and you know what, a bit spot on. I really don't care for him beating around the bush about it, but the fact that Wizard has sank so low over the years , and is well, defying the laws of physics by sucking and blowing at the same time, it does feel good that somebody "IN" the industry comes out and says it a bit. It' snot too much of a hidden fact by the way, it's saying "N'sync sucks" and waiting for the round of applause but still a good turn in giving them the good ol' archers finger, you know?

Me? Well:

1. WIzard is just catching with all the bullshit the rest of insensitive society is doing in the media, and/or what seemingly passes for media and is shoveled down our throats.

2. It's not like Wizard had far to fall, since it's sucked large donkey genitalia, always.

3. They're not even good at reporting media stories, half the sites out there beat them to the punch anyway.

4. Fucking magazines a catalog really.

5. Comic book fans, in general tend to be fucking tards, so, they spponfeed some raw bacon of idiocy to the people sometimes. If they don't make a ruckus about it, or other thing, why should the rest care?

6. Thanks for saying something. JUSt don't beat around the bush. WIZARD IS HARMING THE COMICS COMMUNITY AND IS AN ARSE OF A MAGAZINE MADE FOR AN ARSE OF A CROWD.

This sort of bugs the hell out of me....

ROCKET PIRATES is a Web comic collection of folks curated under the mindful eye of Warren Ellis, writer and pig-shooter extroardinaire being developed (lobbied) right now. The chance was given by Joey Manley, our Stone guard Warlord over Graphicsmash and Moderntales and such, and could be a real site to see later on, fer sure.

The thing that chaps my balls, is that I can imagine only how many wanton fuckers probabaly went ape shit to have the chance just to have their names next to Mr. Ellis, just so they have some sort of crap bragging rights. People might even develop whatever they got to throw on there and see whats taken jsut for the chance, and it might be crap. I wonder how many of the comics sent now are full of piercings, or split scrotums, just to see how they can kiss up up to Warren's affections.
Shit me.

Now why I say this? I'm not gonna like it crossed my mind too, but hell I owuld be lying to myself if I had anything that would or even had the fucking time to do anything for the site. SO I said fuck it, I'll stay in the audience. I'm just worried at how many haf-assers out there are bringing shit in.

Warren will probabaly smell the shit from a mile  away and all will be good but then they'll be the line of arses complaining that warren didin't pick them and some boo hoo fucks.

That when I'll slap them with my cock.

Seeing an Artist Habitat can go a long way...


I dig these little entries about people's art spaces and what they got going in them; it really shows the process by which people work and get things done....these sort of things and sketchbooks really intrigue me to no end. I always like to see how other artist work and go about their business.

Sometimes I learn something about myself, other times I leanr something about my own process, maybe jsut a bit, and not something as big as right and worng, but just process, you know, A,B, C or C, B, A? You know?
Now a whole Blog of this? Sheez I'm going to be all over it.

Maybe I'll submit?
