Emerald City ComiCon!

Thursday, February 15, 2007 - 04:24 PM

Heads up Northwesterners! Heads up Canadian Southwesterners!

The very cool Emerald City ComiCon is a 'Con I've been looking forward to attending for years. And this year, I finally get to go! I and the lads from Blank Label have been invited up, and we'll be signin', sellin', and sayin' hi at booth #306. Make your plans now to drop by: March 31-April 1!

Some of my favorite cartoonists will be there, including: brother-from-another-mother Kris Straub, Scott Kurtz, Gabe & Tycho, Bill & Gene, Brad Guigar, Howard Tayler, and roundin' out the cast...super cartoonist-chef Greg Dean.


Also, I should clarify that I'm not going to New York Comic Con this year. Last year was an absolute blast...but in the midst of setting up the new Sheldon studio this week and next, my time is a little too crunched for travel.

But! Two of my favorite cartoonists in the world with be there, Brad Guigar and Paul the lovely lads of it's definitely a show worth goin' to!

Giving someone the ol' whack-a-doo in croquet is quite possibly the most satisfying thing one can do in life. There's such a delicious "ka-rack" sound associated with it, that it becomes almost Pavlovian.


Also, a quick request to my friends in show business: Whatever it takes, however it happens, we need to get this guy a recording contract with EMI Records.


Questions to ask yourself after watching the video a few times:
1.) Are there more than 7 words used throughout the two-minute song?
2.) How many suit changes can you spot during the video?
3.) Can you pinpoint the moment in the video where he clearly gets tired of dancing?
4.) On a scale of 1-10, 10 being very difficult, how tricky is the "Flea Market Dance"?
