I gotta say that must be one of the longer titles to one of my comics in recent memory.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Halloween. Hopefully none of you are in a recovery room somewhere after eating razor leaden candy apples. Or worse, suffering the indignity of getting a bag of pennies from the crazy Cat Lady from down the street.
My goodness. Can it be November already. Terrifying. Normally I begin to look forward to this time of year because my birthday is December 21 (jot that down). But anymore, I just look past my birthday and that holiday for the big J.C. and focus on the end of the year. New Year's has become more important to me now. I guess I just like fresh starts.
As Jared mentioned Wednesday, he's finished up the Theater Hopper documentary. I had a chance to look at it and it is very, very good. Jared did an excellent job of setting up the story, what Theater Hopper is about and where it's going. He did all of this in a very tidy 6 minutes.
With that in mind, it may be time to note that we probably aren't going to be selling VHS copies of Jared's work as previously promoted in this space. Since the length is so short, we can't justify the expense of producing these at any scale.
That's not to say we're not sitting on some quality stuff here. But why get in a tizzy over 6 minutes?
We're exploring the option of putting Jared's short film up on the site in installments. Of course, bandwidth consumption is still a concern. Maybe we'll have one big blow out at the end of the month where we'll put the film up in it's entirety and we'll take our chances getting cut off. If anyone wants a permanent copy, they can save it to their hard drive.
If anyone has ideas, suggestions or preferences, please e-mail them to me. We'd love to get some feedback on this. In what format would you like to see Jared's good work?
I'd like to give a shout-out to a few new link-buddies. It would behoove you to check out The Aylumantics, The Magic Armadillo, and the good folks of Next Generation Comics. They are all worthy of your love.
Spread that love like a fine cheese...
The Disney holiday juggernaut is revving up early this year.
Let's see I Spy instead.
But... The Santa Clause 2 has magic and whimsy!
Well... I Spy has... Eddie Murphy...
Fine! Then let it be known that from now on, you are on my naughty list.
I was talking about Christmas, you pig. As in NO PRESENTS for you!
Coal in the stocking. Got it.
