There’s a new Telos Single/EP thing out for free until the end of the month.  A sexy young superstarDJMC named Sherlock Cock has a tasty remix on the B-Side.  Go and grab it while stocks last…. Bear With Me Records.

P.S I swear to buggery I’ll do a new comic soon.

I’m Baaaaaaaaccck

June 1, 2008

So I’ve finished all my university work and the mini-heatwave was broken today with gallons of glorious cool rain.  So it’s about time I start doing some more doodling.  I still have a bit of work to do before I have room in my office to draw, but there will be new comics soon.  This will include one I’m doing for the Friends of The Galapagos Islands Nature Trust – Kids newsletter.  In other news I’ve been putting together my summer books, albums and DVDs ready to devour over the coming months.  I will be posting pictures of the piles later too.

See you in a few days with a comic.

PS. Listen to Japanther

Burial

May 3, 2008

New Comic up this afternoon.  It took ages and I really like it.  After not seeing what all the hype was about I finally sat down and gave the new Burial album a good listening too.  I’m now super hooked, and it has inspired me to go and try and work out what Xiu Xiu is all about.

GO and listen to this Burial song

Search Party

April 30, 2008

I’m so dull and down,

That the light at the end of my tunnel

Will be the torches of the search party

After the cave in

During a tour

Of the Great Orme Copper mines,

In North Wales,

Which is now open Sundays,

With free admission for under-5s

After I’m excavated I’ll probably

Have a peek in the gift shop.

EPILOGUE

I will then spend an hour haggling

Over the price of a key-ring torch.

Stick with Me

April 30, 2008

I rammed up a new comic today, I’m still uploading pages of the small print comic I abandoned, so some of you will have already seen it. When life gives me lemons of talentlessness, I make talentless lemonade. If you have a spot in your mental register for a new webcomic, I would like to recommend Christiann’s Post-it note comics… I’d post an example but wordpress is being gay. Just go and look at these, the Orange Juice panel is one of my favourite comics ever, and I’ll be stealing the one panel/post it idea soon enough.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to return to my misery.

DJ N-Wee – The Slack Album (Jay-Z’s Black Album versus Pavement’s Slanted and Enchanted)

This album was never off my mp3 player when I worked all those shitty temp jobs and it got me through months worth of drizzly commutes. Then it disappeared when Dangermouse got done for The Grey Album. But some kindly soul has uploaded it back online and I suggest you all go and get it.

Bollocks

April 14, 2008

There’s a new comic up over at the site. I don’t have much to talk about at the moment, I have been mainly learning to use music software whilst having nightmares about my dissertation deadline (3 weeks and I’ve barely started). On the bright side I did remix Telos’ new album top to bottom so maybe that will be around sometime soon for you to deeksy deek.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’d been messing around making a remix of one of my pals Telos’ song.  Well six hours later I have come up with this:

Yes, after six hours of fiddling with ‘Audacity’, I have made a ten track, seven minute  long album of sorts.  I’d loosely call it a remix album, since I have no musical ability whatsoever and all the samples are sourced from recent favourite songs.  I don’t know if the term ‘wreck up’ has been coined as a sub genre of ‘mash up’, but all I’ve really done is wreck some songs.  It’s unlistenable, pointless, pretentious and the most fun I’ve had in ages!  Since I don’t own the rights to any of these song I”m wary of putting the thing up for download, so hit me up on MSN or whatever if you want to hear what I’ve done.

PS… I guess if it runs just short of eight minutes it’s technically an EP?

PPS… If you are a member of a certain secret mixtape society you can get it there tomorrow.
