As I was drawing today’s comic, I actually thought to myself "Have I crossed the line?" But here’s the thing – when I started thinking up comic ideas for Grindhouse, this was the FIRST idea that came to mind. All the other comics this week I had worked backwards from that original thought. So, by this point, even if I was going too far, I didn’t care. I’d come to far to give up now! This was the big payoff, baby!

I don’t care what you say – I think it’s one of the funnier comics I’ve written. I like this one a lot.

At any rate, Grindhouse comes out this weekend and it’s been getting crazy good reviews. It’s funny, too – because oddly enough, the critics seem to like it, but the blogosphere has already gotten sick of the hype. Oh, when will critics and the blogosphere learn to get along?

Personally, I find it the same kind of contemptible “;too cool for the room” atmosphere that makes reading most blogs 90% unbearable.

Incidentally, Theater Hopper falls comfortably within the remaining 10%…

As much as I wish it weren’t the case, I probably won’t be seeing Grindhouse this weekend. It’s a shame, because I know this is one film everyone is going to be talking about. I’m not really blaming it on the fact that I have a 6 week old baby, thought. I’m blaming it on Cami entirely. Yeah, she has no desire to see it. ;-D

I’m just havin’ fun. It’s not like I can blame her for not wanting to see it. Zombies, blood, gore… not her bag. It’s not really my bag, either. I just want to hear some whip-smart Tarantino dialogue and see the homage to the 70’s in full effect. She said I could go see a matinee if I wanted. But underneath you could tell there was a line of venom. “If you take off for three hours to see this movie, so help me…” that’s what the look she shot me said in an instant. Sometimes to be an effective communicator, you gotta read the non-verbals.

Remiss as I am about the situation, I know you guys will have fun seeing Grindhouse this weekend and I want you to report back to me. Certainly it can’t be an more depraved than today’s comic!

Have a great weekend!

That's all well and good. But what if you want to bust a nut of a different kind?

What about...


Say, baby. Maybe tonight you and I could... *whisper* *whisper*


Oh, God. I'm so embarrassed. This has never happened to me before.

Uh, that's okay. I heard it's a really common thing...
