This is tonight! We are overwhelmingly excited to play with Shearwater, one of our favorite bands.
We also have one extra ticket to the sold out St. Vincent show, which we will be giving away tonight. We’ll draw for it during our set, so make sure to get there in time.
<3, this is a heart not balls
Sam and Max hollowed out some old books (it’s OK, they were crappy books) to make SECRET HIDING PLACE BOOKS and then they designed the covers for them so that nobody would want to open them and here they are. I am only telling you this because of that one time you promised me you were not a spy.
I realize I talk mostly about writers and story things, and that’s a disservice to comics criticsm because art is at least one-half of the story, probably more. It’s one of my greatest self-diagnosed flaws as bringer of the teal deer, how I regularly fail to discuss panel layouts and framing choices when I talk about what comics mean.
So today I will tell you exactly why Greg Land is horrible.
Reblogging this post from a couple months ago because the latest issue of Uncanny X-Men, which had a great story, reminded me of how much I hate HATE Greg Land’s art.
This is the last chance you have to download this song for free from my Bandcamp. I run out of the rights at the end of the year, so get it will it’s seasonally appropriate and play at holiday parties during the uncomfortable silences! (click the pic* to d/l)
AND - for the Birminghamians - plan to come see us play under our new name (Persons) with Ferocious Bubbles and Monitors this Thursday night. Doors at 8PM
*If anyone wants to give me photoshop lessons for Christmas, I’ll stop making cover art in Word.
I’ve wanted to write about Community for a long time, but I’ve been kind of afraid to—not just because I fear not doing it justice, but because I fear not adding anything new to the conversation. Because, really, what can I say about Community that hasn’t already been said? To heap…
Several things, not the least of which being our inadvertent (though hilarious) inclusion in a national list of Tea Party ‘Patriot’ Groups, have led us (Andy’s Tea Party) to seriously consider a name change lest anyone think we would ever endorse Michele Bachmann.
So, assuming we don’t change our mind, we will soon be known as… (imagine that ellipsis as a drumroll please): Persons. My last name. And also coincidentally what we all are. So I get to be both extremely narcissistic and all-inclusive.
So stay tuned as we’re about to record a full-length album and play some shows! Same band, just under a different name.
I’m very excited about this, and you should be too. After a few singles and eps over the past couple of years, The Sound of Arrows are putting out their debut album. These Swedes are immensely talented songwriters and producers and nice people to boot. Plus, Stefan counts Enya among his inspirations, which is a good thing in my book. It’s coming out digitally in the U.S. at the beginning of November, but if you want the hard copy, you can pre-order it on Amazon (it includes a second disc of instrumental tracks!).
