Dogs & Cats Living Together – Mass Hysteria!

Yesterday Joyce brought over her doggie, Bojjak. First we locked Kodos in my room because I knew he’d freak out. But being locked in my room freaked him out way more than meeting the dog, as it turns out. Well, being sequestered made him yowl more, anyway. Kodos seemed nonplussed by the dog except when Bojjak growled at him, which turned out to be a lot. But Bojjak is a big pussy, and whenever Kodos moved he freaked out and jumped up into Joyce’s lap.

There, now wasn’t that interesting? This is what you can expect from our relationship – pet stories.


Well, despite the tremendous amount of potholes on the road to the new album, our songs continue to rock hard. We’ve all been stressing about our readiness and scheduling, but I have a pretty good feeling it’s all going to come together. The songs are pretty solid. What we lack in professionalism we make up for in channeling dark energies from beyond. If all the band members lived in the same city it would be easier. If all the band members lived in the same long distance calling zone it would be easier. If all the band members lived on the same damn continent it would be easier!

But we have a song in Middle Egyptian and I’m happy.

January is coming up and I plan on registering for the Introduction to Comic Book Production at VanArts. It’s 12 classes of three hours and apparently by the end of it I should end up with finished pages from an actual story. I haven’t decided what would be a good project for that. World Wildlife Federation of Justice is the one I’d be most excited about, but may not be the best thing to have in my portfolio. Recently someone from a Rocket Robin Hood fan group, who actually does work in comics, has begun an RRH comic book project, so I could incorporate that. Other options are Spaceship Zero, of course, but I’m not sure about the excitement level on that after chasing it for 7 years now. But, on the other hand, comic books are like pre-made storyboards for movies….

Thoughts, anyone?

ps – look what Chris got me for Christmas!

  1. Hey, I got the ST: Animated Series as well! I keep telling people I got it and they say “There’s an animated series now?” and then I have to explain how it came out four years after the original series and has the original castmembers doing voices.

    Wikipedia has a great page about it. and I loved hearing this:

    “Leonard Nimoy refused to sign up to lend his voice to the series unless Nichelle Nichols and George Takei were added to the cast – claiming that Sulu and Uhura were of import as they were proof of the ethnic diversity of the 23rd century and should not be recast.”

    That Nimoy is a class act.

  2. I think the WWF is clever and wouldn’t be bad in your portfolio (I would stay away from D&D), but I would also like to see a SSZ comic. Retro space!

    Comic renditions of classic literature seem to be fairly popular. I hear “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs was done as a comic recently. I guess the Lovecraft stuff is still under copyright, but maybe you have a favourite old book or Shakespeare play that you could do…?

    Or…do a comic about the crime-fighting Mythos adventures of The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets. Lovecraft meets ‘Josie and The Pussycats’ meets ‘Tenacious D’.

    Holy Cheese Flavoured Smokies! This is a great idea! I’d buy it for .75! Okay, maybe a buck seventy five.

  4. i think you should do a book about a dog and cat team-up. naturally the dog will be wearing a bow tie. perhaps they are intelligent as per the SSZ universe? then the dog and cat can hijack a spaceship and as they fly away, they get into an argument and, via bumped controls and dumb luck, accidentally blow up the hydronaut planet smasher.

    it practically writes itself!
