  2. Ha ha ha, not yet. I am getting some work, though, which is hugely gratifying.

  3. Anyone who doesn’t find this to be sheer brilliance suffers from a lack of intelligence.

  4. brilliant work. one of my projects is doing my version of a song from each year of the 20th century (1901, i love you truly, 2000, yellow). i’ve found a number of songs i’ve picked here. yr taste is sublime. love your comments, love that you’ve got stuff here that’s new to me. fukin epic job. i’m also a weds-pull-list-comic-geek, not having missed a week since late 1978 (over 100 half-size boxes.) gonna google yr comic work. re comics/music, i’ve been doing stuff with jeffrey lewis, comic/music genius. we made an album, which i’d love to send ya, along with some of my more recent stuff. if you’d like, please send yr po box. long may you wave!
