Well, more like Franky’s AT the Jersey Shore. More specifically, I’m drawing the next strip at the beach in Manasquan, NJ. I’m not a beach guy, I HATE being out in the sunlight- and no, Frankenstein is NOT drawn by a vampire. He would totally hate that.
I am donating red blood cells. They take out blood, centrifuge it, keep the blood cells, and pump the plasma back in. No worse than a regular blood donation, except it takes longer.
A weird thing to blog about I bet, but blood donations save lives, so what the heck. Plus, you know, blood, monsters, it kinda fits the theme.
I have an especially needed blood type, O+, so they’re always after me like Vampires on Fairies (True Blood? Anyone?)
Also, in my defense, I am down two pints, so I’m probably not in my right mind.
All done! Time to eat free cookies. SO many free cookies.
The crew over at the Night of the Living Podcast just posted another fun installment, but this time they blew the back of my head off with an amazingly awesome review of Frankenstein Superstar!
Night of the Living Podcast is dedicated to all things Horror. Amy, Andy, Chiseck, Erica, Freddy, and my man Kelley review movies, books, cons, etc, anything with blood on it, and have a screaming good time doing it.
It’s episode 235, a reader feedback episode, and my review starts around the 1:02:35 mark, right after the bumper music FEED MY FRANKENSTEIN by Alice Cooper, which I must assume they played just for me! It’s like when I fantasize about being on Conan or something, and I wonder what kind of music should the band play as I walk out (these things keep me up at night)? These guys nailed it. Only they were way nicer to me than Conan ever would be. I could not have written a better review myself (I really did not write it).
Hop on over there and check it out, then listen to them review one of your favorite horror movies. It’s like if MST3K built their robots from parts from Hot Topic instead of Home Depot. Plus bits from a head shop and a porn store. Wait, it’s cooler than that. Recently they did Whatever Happened to Baby Jane and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark- two of my faves!!! What’s not to love.

The way of the cartoonist is a lonely one. Hours alone, hunched over your drawing board, plumbing the depths of your soul… and eating snacks. I get by listening to progressive TV and radio shows, like Thom Hartmann, Rachel Maddow, and Stephanie Miller, who has a regular feature called “Tuesdays with Tyler” with Aisha Tyler. She’s an honest-to-geekness zombie-killin’ nerd, plus she played Christopher Walken’s majordomo Mahogany in Balls of Fury, Agent Lana Kane on Archer, and Mother Nature in The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (ok, that last one maybe not as cool). She’s also a stand-up comedian, and she comes up with some crazy phrases on the show. A few weeks ago she was describing how brain surgery patients are awake during surgery, so that if the surgeon touches the wrong part of the brain, they yell “BOOGEDY BOOGEDY CHEESE!” The hosts of The Stephanie Miller have been touring in The Sexy Liberal tour, and for weeks they’ve been saying on the radio show that someone should make a t-shirt with the phrase, so I finally did it. I’ve been trying to contact them via email, Facebook, and Twitter, but no reply. I hope when they find out they’re happy, and not pissed.
If this makes sense to you, please buy my shirt! More designs coming soon!
