Making money from art is not vulgar. Art is a commodity. It makes people feel something. It raises the greater sum of human happiness. It increases the gaiety of the nation. It has a value. -John Allison

But also, be careful of heatstroke. Dogs just physically don't cool themselves as well as us hairless apes do.

Always a good reminder. I always really feel for the St. Bernard once summer temps settle in. You can really tell when the heat gets to him because he just kinda collapses into a motionless fur slinky in some shade and looks dead.

I take him out in the mornings when we feed the livestock so he can rampage, but when the t-stat hits 85 I bring him inside until the evening cool-down. One good thing, he and the german shepherd are big enough to stand at the hoss trough and drink from it, so at least they always have all the cool water they can handle.

A couple I liked over last year and this:

What the Hell Did I Just Read - Jason Pargin
Solutions and Other Problems - Allie Brosh
Point B - Drew Magary

Also, I got my hands on two big TPB focused on Maggie the Mechanic and Hopey from Love and Rockets. I've heard some modern criticism of the Hernandez brothers work, and although warranted, fuck it, these are the people, stories and tone of my teens.

Damn server's gone down again right in the middle of my periodic reread. I take this very personally indeed

The New York Times Bestselling ACHEWOOD returns to print in this massive new omnibus series, collecting the complete comics from start to finish! Volume 1 includes the first 600+ strips in chronological order, alongside a wealth of rare additional material including recipes, short-fiction, maps, posters, never-before reprinted comics, and much more! It even features an all new Achewood short story by series creator Chris Onstad! Tremendously influential and darkly hilarious, Achewood quickly and expertly subverts the genre expectations of the daily strip with razor sharp with and deeply human explorations of depression, relationships, masculinity, death, and selling your soul to the devil to become a billionaire.

That's a long nights travel for some talking cats, one of whom passes for a dog, and a special-boy otter drawn like a wiener.

Well, that devolved into an utter shit show, but now that the Presidency has changed hands and the world didn't end, I'ma close this motha for the satisfaction of it.

Thanks! All I wanted for my birthday this year was a new president. It's coming a day late like everything else I've ordered lately.

OK, that was a pretty sick burn right there.

Hey Pug Lady Lady!
Happy having another birthday!
It beats the ##### off NOT having another one, for sure.

Also, you gotta love the obsessiveness of this guy managing an archive of the whole assbar schmear.

OMG, the way people lost their shit and can still do so is friggin' awesome.
I started off in the assbar comments being kind of sarcastic and pointing out tropes we had joked about here in a snarky way.
After a couple of days of watching the fanboys completely lose their shit, I shifted to comments that could be read either way, depending on the reader's mind/mood. That let me pick on them for bringing their own shit to the game. Man did that get people torqued.
After a week or so of that, I switched to comments that were obviously supportive and productive of discussing the material. but by then people were so on the bandwagon that anything I posted got crushed, but then people would start al these side conversations about why.
At that point I considered my little psyop a complete success since all I had to do was post the equivalent of "NICE STRIP!" and all this shit would erupt around it, completely disrupting the thread.

Fuck, I played that like the saddest song on the...
