Schedules are cool. Not to brag, but because of my scheduling, tonight I’ve managed to: Pick up brush in my garden Fill the bird feeder Work on Quiet Finish an article I’ve been writing Read bits of The Commanding Heights and The Pilgrim’s Progress Draw Practice the piano Practice calligraphy Schedules are cool. I am not going to start publishing Night Life (my comic) until I can reliably draw the same character from […]

It’s late, and I’m tired. I will be brief. I spent much of Thursday working on Azaka, a website that will allow AtheOS users to record hardware they’ve tested on AtheOS, and whether it’s compatible or not. It amazes me to ponder that I built that entire site in one day (the same day, too). After several weeks of successful abstinence, I succumbed and binged on porn last night. Afterwards, I realized how far […]

I have got to find a better time to update this thing. Briefly: We had our driveway paved today. The new pavement looks fantastic. The house looks like it’s worth 25% more than what it was worth yesterday. We can’t drive on it yet, though, so we’re hiking out to the street where we’ve parked our cars. Halfway through cutting our front lawn, I accidentally […]

Schedules are wonderful things. They give me the time to do everything that I want to do. They politely inform me of the exact consequences — major or trivial — of goofing off. With my schedules, I can make optimal use of my time. Today is a great example. I didn’t really do much that I can brag about tonight, but thanks to my schedule, I did accomplish a lot of little jobs. I wrote a snippet […]

I hope you feel better, Erin! I had a long, fruitful conversation with Saalon tonight, about my comic magazine idea. I’m ammending my plan. I’d begin by courting existing artists, asking them to create original works, and I’ll concentrate on publishing shorter works — one- to three-issue stories, roughly. I’ll also publish existing online comics, but only a few of them. Here’s why: I think that people will […]

…The problem is, if I wrote my journal entries earlier in the day, I wouldn’t have the full days’ worth of activities to report on. OTOH, I’m not reporting on any activities, so maybe I should write journal entries at a time of day when I can at least provide some intelligent commentary. Or even some humor, like the bathroom at work that smells like butter (I am not making this up). I had a fun day […]

Well, I just finished watching Porco Rosso, a fantastic Miyazaki film about a WW1 Italian Air Force Pilot who’s become a bounty hunter. And he’s turned into a pig. I’ve also posted another drawing, “Adam,” to my gallery. That’s about all I can think of to report tonight.

Woohoo! My pirated Studio Ghibli DVD boxed set arrived today!

Heh. I notice that my hit counter for this page is exactly one year old today. I’ve had an average of just under 11,000 hits here in the past year. That’s an average of 30 hits a day. Pretty impressive, really (though I tend to hit this page quite a few times each day to test it [but no more than ten on average, I imagine]). So I received this e-mail at my work […]

Brennen made an excellent point (as expected) about my comic magazine idea: Perhaps it should begin life by focusing on serializing existing online comics. There’s a pre-built audience there, and some of them would be willing to buy a nicely-printed copy of the archives. Corollary: it would be advantageous to print related comics, so that there’s a good chance that a fan will get anthologies of several of their favorite comics in each […]
