The Joup Friday Album: sElf – Breakfast with Girls

This week’s entry as Joup’s Friday Album – a weekly column where we try to give our readers a nice musical pick-me-up to help transition out of the work week and into the hard-won freedoms of the weekend – was down to two albums until just a few moments ago. These are two albums that I have known for years and once again recently had in heavy rotation. I have a long and deep history with both of these pieces of music and, perhaps not surprisingly both were recorded and came out around the same time.

Thee Comic Column #88: Ted MCKeever’s Superannuated Man

Any comic that begins with a quote from Hunter S. Thompson already gets a massive “plus” in my book. But guess what? That’s not the only reason that I absolutely LOVE The Superannuated Man.

Ted McKeever – I’m so very familiar with this man’s name from prowling the shelves of the comic shops of my youth that it amazed me to realize that I’ve never actually read anything he’s worked on.

How is that possible?

Let’s talk about reading habits. Several weeks ago I was firmly entrenched in my weekly floppies, marveling at the usual monthly awesomeness by Remender, Kirkman and some new stuff by Ennis. However, one thing that this column does not reflect, for obvious reasons, is that I do not only read comics. Literature is also a love of mine, from F. Scott Fitzgerald, to Bret Easton Ellis, David Foster Wallace, Donna Tartt – the list goes on and on. In short if we were to talk about my reading habits they are, in a word, habitual.

Recently while filming issue #6 of Drinking with Comics (which should be up in about a week) I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Cassidy James, the creator of a fledgling independent book named Gun Up Paintball. After talking with Cassidy I knew I wanted to write about the book  as it looks and sounds like a fantastic project and is of course the very definition of an ‘indie’ project. The following is our conversation about Gun Up Paintball!
