A few folks have been wondering where I’ve been. http://www.benadamsarts.com/?p=235 explains why I haven’t been blogging much. I hope to be back shortly with a post reaffirming where I want to go with this blog and the Misfit’s Journey story in the months to come. I’m glad the Dems did well in the ’06 elections. [...]

So, yeah, things have been quiet here lately. The big reason for this is that I’m in the process of making a couple of big changes to my life that are just giving me less time to work on this blog and my comics. First of all, I started a new job a little less [...]
When I recorded a podcast with Joey Manley, I got one of my facts wrong. I said that Chris Reeve’s first SUPERMAN film came out in 1979. It actually came out in December, 1978.

(This neighborhood looks about the way it does in this picture, BTW. I’ve really had my fill of snow and winter….I hope spring is on the way soon.)
Here’s an interesting link on Woody Allen and his new film. I too go through periods where I question my own value. It’s very likely that you’re going to see a Woody Allen influence in my new comics. DECONSTRUCTING HARRY and HUSBANDS & WIFES in particular have had a big impact on me. (You might [...]

Here’s what the desktop on my machine currently looks like. I use both WindowBlinds and WinStep to modify the Windows XP desktop. I also frequently download skins for both (and wallpapers too) from WinCustomize. I use WindowBlinds because I’ve gotten bored with the typical Windows desktop.

[The panels above originally appeared in the story "I'm Grateful! I'm Grateful!", which appeared in WEIRDO MAGAZINE in 1989. It's copyright Robert Crumb of course.] I’ve been spending the day here in the “home office” here in southeast Minneapolis. I’m getting the same level of satisfaction out of this that Crumb gets from hanging out [...]
