http://flameape.org

This is my new blog's location- I look forward to you all reading and so on. The old posts that are here will serve as archive until I get them all moved over to the new location. Blogger was the first blog service I used, back when it was Blogspot. It introduced me to the concept and in a weird way I'll miss it.

Goodbye Blogger, hello new blog!

the LONG GOODBYE... or, HELLO WP.

2009-08-18T02:25:45.388-04:00

(image) Sigh. This is sad, hard, and a bit choking me uppy. After being on blogger since it's inception as blogspot, I have finally called it quits.

I really love the idea of integration with flickr, picasa, in fact, MY WHOLE GOOGLE ACCOUNT! I like the IDEA of being all snug and cozy and integrated. It's nice. It's web 2.0...It's... safe.

But the last year has taught me the hard way what blogging pals like Matt Paradise and Bill Simmon and NTodd have been saying a long while ago- that pre-fab hosted blogging can suck. Alot. Blogger- also for it's improvements and so on, is not meeting my needs anymore.

Between server down and template hell and too many "blogger-modding" -hell experiences that are just annoying, I have decided that like old Bilbo, I must go on holiday.


Now don't fret. I won't burn this old house down. I will serve up the big fat "redirection" posts soon- this will stay up forever- a web version of an footprint.

FYI- you can see the new blog under construction at: http://flameape.org more later.



Garfield Minus Garfield

Few things achieve this level of genius. I am ordering you to go to http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/ now. I quote the site:

Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfieldfrom the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angstof a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mindof an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle againstloneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.

VIDEO Slow Motion boob manipulation.

UM. I really gotta stop drunk flickr-ing...



I realized this post needed clarification- YES i'm a PERV. YES, I regularly do things like drunk-searching for "boobs" on FLICKR. this search ...I did not count on this. crescenthead, amateur producer of pics and vids of floppy, buoyant and lactating breasts, is not your father(or mother's) prolific purveyor of passion. It's not that the videos & photos are that original or weird or perverted per se (unless of course you find lactation weird or perverted); It's just that they're odd.

The oddity comes from the juxtaposition of the closeups of jiggling,wiggling and acrobatically manipulated bosoms, in SLOW-MOTION(wtf?) with oddly cheerful and muzak-y soundtrack!

In the old days of tape bootlegging and trading this kind of thing would end up on some "mondo video" collection. Or maybe my friend Matt paradise's Public Access show, SUBTERRANEAN SINEMA (we shall miss you Matt). Anyways, what I like about Crescenthead's ouvre is that it has a kind of outsider art sincerity to it. A weird, peverted(yay perverts!!) sincerity- but sincerity nonetheless.

BLUE BEETLE: We Don't Need No Stinkin' Floppies- via Kung Fu Monkey

2008-11-18T14:38:56.044-05:00

Reading  John Rogers' Kung Fu Monkey article, BLUE BEETLE: We Don't Need No Stinkin' Floppies,
He brings up many good points about self publishing, web-based comics publishing, etc. 
"... On the business side, there are a million great stories out there that aren't being told, because of a.)the high cost of breaking into the business of storytelling in mass media and b.) the high cost of producing and distributing those stories once you've broken in.My point being -- a lot of those great untold stories make the best sense told in a serialized nonstandard page length, with accompanying art. When I was working on Blue Beetle, the final two issues originally plotted out to 50 pages. A tight fifty pages. They had to fit into 44. Now, setting aside that it's always better to edit, we can still ask -- was the book better for losing those six pages of character and story? I don't know. But it seems damn silly to bend storytelling to a format sold almost exclusively in low-attendance, often creepy specialty shops scattered across the nation.

Will you get even the paltry tens of thousands of paying customers that
comics now get? I don't know. But without the publishing overhead, you
may not need that many. Let's put it this way -- stripping out
distribution costs and our share of the rent for those nice DC offices
in Mahattan, Blue Beetle could have cost fifty cents an issue at its worst sales level, and still paid Rafael and myself more than we made on the run of the book.
..."
YO- click and read the link in John's article to
this interview with Clay Shirky.

Why all the Black??

2008-11-06T17:59:35.914-05:00

Well I am really tired of 3rd party 3 column xml templates not working on this blogger thingy. So I hunkered down and found a way to hard code an extra column onto the standard Minima template. I also made the fucker black. WHY? Cuz it's easier to see posted art, basically. So until i host my blog locally on www.flameape.org, I'm sticking with this simple layout.

Tired now. Must rest from blog/web 2.0 fatigue.

AMAZON KINDLE FOR ECOMIC DISTRO?

2008-11-29T13:06:52.324-05:00

I was checking out DONNA BARR's article on her blog on COMICTALK.COM, "Nobody Does It But Lulu", where she documents her awful experience with the (hopefully soon defunct) dissapointing blight on the fetal eComic/downloadables industry - WOWIO.COM(recently bought out by scandal-historied, PLATINUM COMICS). Barr writes,

So far, the only dependable, cheap way to order downloads for my books has proven to be at Lulu. The prices are never above 96 cents for any download.

The update on downloadables:

  • Booksurge lost that ability several years ago.
  • Mobipocket is insanely complicated, and the downloads cost the customer as much as the hardbacks (what's up with THAT?).
  • Clickwheel and Magwheel have lots of enthusiasm, but they're not up and running yet, not really.
  • Wowio is unreliable and can't keep up payments.
  • I haven't tried loading comics on Amazon's Kindle yet. I'll have to get at that next. Maybe. I haven't even looked at their prices yet.

Sigh. The longer I spend working with distribution and getting it fixed for the future, the farther off goes my working on my books. ..."

So I decided to check out the KINDLE- and here's a handy video to describe its uses and so on. YES, I know- It IS hype. However- It may be one method of mass download/distro in a paperless eventual comics world we, as potential DIY comic creators are going to have to face down the road. I am intrigued. I am not "sold" on it. But it is food for thought.
