Although the comic is steaming hot and ready to go, today's blog is going to be a little delayed.
Jared and I went to see A Perfect Circle in concert last night and it was a great show. Preparing to be out of the house most of the evening, I prepared the comic in advance and figured that I could just pound out the blog when I got home.
What I didn't count on was the first big snowstorm of the year. When we walked into the venue, it was sleeting only a little. When we walked out, it was a full-blown blizzard with a few inches of snow already on the ground. It turned an otherwise brisk, one hour ride home into a tension filled 40mph slog that more than doubled our commute. By the time I got home, I was shot. Imagine my glee when I had to do it all over again in the morning just to get to work. My regular 20 minute took almost an hour and a half.
So, anyway. That's why the blog will be late. Plus, I have some stern words for MPAA Chairman Jack Valenti to go along with this comic and I want to be sure my little "essay" is firing on all cylinders when I unload it.

Bring it on! I'm not afraid of some old man!
SILENCE! I am the great and all-powerful Valenti! Tremble before my wrath!
Your criticism of our anti-piracy campaign undermines my authority.
This I cannot allow.
You have a lot of nose hair like my grandpa.
Don't screw with me, kid. I used to work for Lyndon Johnson.
