Meanwhile, in other corners of the internet this week:
Last one to leave the bag wins.
The Magic Meathands have our final show at the Mary Pickford Studio tonight! Don’t miss it!
just completed a round-up of all of the Finalists in the Graphic Novel category for the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes, which were given out last night: The Comics Observer
The LA Times Festival of Books is going on today and tomorrow, and there are plenty of
Comics Panels and Events to check out.
Ten on the Tenth for April has an awesome group of songs, and it’s not too late to post your own list of train songs.
I make a quick cameo in
Nahleen.com‘s weekly Moments of Peace this week. It’s a picture taken from last Saturday’s Magic Meathands show. It looks like a case of One of These Things is Not Like the Other, but I’ll take it!

– All sorts of exciting things are going on over at
The Comics Observer:
The debut of our newest column
The Journey, Man by Wayne Rée, where he takes you through his discovery of comic books. The second installment of
Dig Comics by Miguel Cima, where he reveals his recent discovery of dramatic manga. And here are
three graphic novels released this week worth checking out for people with little or no history with comics.
– Changes are afoot with the improv comedy group
Magic Meathands! If you didn’t read about it here, check it out over there. (And we’ve got a show next Saturday.)
– Music lovers! Get your lists ready!
Ten on the Tenth is happening on Tuesday, April 10th.
Nahleen.com continues to be revealing, eye-opening and funny. I think my favorite one this week was her total take-down of the interior decorating skills of doctors’ offices.
recommends The Comics Observer 3 new graphic novels worth checking out for new comic readers. And it also continues its coverage of the LA Times Festival of Books with a look at the just-announced program schedule.
In case you missed it here,
learn about the Magic Meathands’ Comedy Outreach Project, bringing comedy to people in our community who need some laughter.
Nahleen had her first full week of blogging! Go her! This one, about how sometimes she just has to WAIT whether she wants to or not, might be my favorite of the week.
My Tumblr gets a rare but probably controversial update in support of Détente.
And on the totally other end of the music spectrum, if you’re into singer-songwriters from the late ’60s and early ’70s, take a look at the

Uh oh. The blogging bug has spread to my wife. Our cat might be next.
Yes, Nahleen has started blogging at
Nahleen.com, where she’s writing about her experiences living with multiple sclerosis and lupus. Emphasis on living and trying to live better.
What’s amazing about this for me is that I’m learning new things about what she’s going through or gaining a deeper understanding, even though we talk a lot about it and even though I see her go through it every day. I guess that’s why we humans developed different ways to express ourselves.
Anyway, I hope you’ll stop by
Nahleen.com, subscribe, and share it with your friends if one or more posts resonate with you. I’m sure she’d love to hear from you.
