Okay, I'm not sure I entirely understand this, but I'll do it anyway...
Big Monkey Comics has a, um, "space" at MySpace. I'm told this means something to The Young People Who Need To Get Off My Lawn.
Anyway, all the Little Monkeys at the store put it together as way of helping Friends of the Big Monkey connect. What do I know? I still use postcards.
A lot of Devon's many friends in the comic book industry have become "Friends of the Big Monkey": Cameron Stewart, Brad Meltzer, Dennis Culver, Mike Wieringo, Tara McPherson, Marc Andreyko, Allen Heinberg, Brian Wood, Todd Nauck, Justin Gray, Cully Hammer, Matt Silady, Sean Dulaney, Warren Ellis, Brad Walker, Robert Kirkman, Talent Caldwell, Jim Trabold, Elizabeth Genco, Brian K. Vaughn, Caleb Monroe, Eric Johnson, Andy Smith, Geoff Johns, Len Kody, Jon Favreau, George Khoury, A. David Lewis, R.D. Hall, Joe Infurnari, Danielle Corsetto, Dwight MacPherson, Jason Rodriguez, Ed Brubaker, Aaron McGruder, and probably some I just didn't notice.
I don't have one these "MySpace" thingies 'cuz the nice people at Witness Relocation won't let me. But the Big Monkey Comics space is close enough, so I'd like it if all of you who regularly read (and enjoy) this blog would pop on over and "befriend" Big Monkey Comics at MySpace.
And tell them the Rolling Head of Rambo sent you!
I'll send a request ASAP.
But the knowledge that Warren Ellis has a myspace is, frankly, terrifying.
If you're knocking around MySpace, you should check out Aqualove, this Welsh band's ode to the King of the Seas:
Thank you, Hunter; that'll be playing on Big Monkey radio soon (unless the Sophie I Love You folks ask me not to, of course!).
What, The Franchise isn't noticed? We won't take this sitting down! For that, I'm writing you into a song...
The Franchise's songs are on our radio AND CDs for sale in our store.
I keed, I keed! (grovels...)
(not about the writing you into the song bit - I have it written, but just need to get it recorded: it includes the line "Scip and Devon make it funky" [guess with which word that line rhymes?] just about the fake righteous indignation...)
aside: I'm totally waiting for "mxyzptlk" to be your google word verification...
Are you writing the Big Monkey Theme Song?
that's one sure way to get your song on Big Monkey radio!
Believe it or not, I did write one. :)
I emailed the draft lyrics to you for your perusal...
I've used the phrase "The Young People Who Need To Get Off My Lawn." At least a dozen times in the past day, both in conversation and in writing.
Great postcard. I'd produce an entire volume based on that one picture.
Oh, the Lobster Waitresses is a very famous postcard. I actually owned an original in college.
I don't get the credit for "lawn kids"; it's a Devon thing, he says it all the time.
Where I'm from, there are no lawns.
