Hey all, I’m writing this on behalf of king of punk, #JimShomo. So, Jim is on tour with The Holidays right now, and the car they were in died. Joe Spurlock is driving a rental home with the gear, and Jim is booking bus tickets now to finish the tour. Jim is going to have faith in the power of…
It includes a preview from my forthcoming book, new installation images, and lots of new commissioned work.
The design and programming was done by my good friend John Friel.
It’s been an intense labor of love, thanks for looking.
My best bud Daniel has a new website up. Check out the new body of work he’s been working on for the past year (Blisner, IL - a sequel of sorts to Blisner, Ill), as well as a lot of incredible stories he’s had the chance to shoot for magazines over the past year.
Sorry for my tumblr absence and my lack of comics or photos. I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by social media and output in general and I currently feel like I want to keep all to myself. The idea of contributing to all the white noise feels strange right now.
Even if I appreciate a lot of it and really like seeing the art and creative work of a lot of you out there, I’m having trouble reconciling the sort of mindless way that I’ve been consuming things in the last year and I’m frustrated by trying to figure how to deal with that without seeming “over it.” Or dropping out or something. Also, I got sucked into the idea that I need to keep churning out comics in order to stay relevant in the fast moving world of the internet and that’s really overwhelming sometimes and was giving me anxiety. I’m taking a break from having to keep up.

When I was a teenager I always daydreamed about having a musician boyfriend that would play all my favorite songs for me. I’m an adult now but it’s exactly as I had always hoped.
For valentine’s day, Mikey recorded me a cover of My Bloody Valentine’s “When You Sleep.” Here it is.
Mikey made this for me last year for Valentines Day. So good.Http://michaelcantor.bandcamp.com

The classism in the first part of the article is infuriating to me. Of course it is, not only as a…
One of the best things about the Philly punk scene, one of the things that makes it one of the best in the country right now, is all of the thoughtful voices that are a part of it.
BJ from Red Planet Recording graciously offered to record bands from First Time’s the Charm for a comp. Marge is in the studio now! As BJ said, it’ll just be a little comp cd but ten years from now it might be a cool thing for people to stumble across. Have you heard Marge yet? One of my favorite new Philly bands.
