Halloween dance party!
The next issue of Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy (#3/4) comes out next week. This is a panel from last month’s installment. It’s the Cowboy swinging around two chainsaws on a pole, cutting up undead bad guys.
The entire issue looked like this. Every two pages had two widescreen splash panels each, and those panels all depicted the Shaolin Cowboy cutting up zombies. Zombies are played out beyond belief at the moment, and yet this was the most metal thing I’d seen in a year.
Black Flag has returned in about as embarrassing a way as they could, short of including Keith Morris, who can’t give up how Greg Ginn slighted him three decades ago. Adult Swim probably won’t put Delocated season 3 out on DVD. The Walkmen are going on an extended hiatus. Joaquin Phoenix seemed like a good guy but now he’s dating an 18-year-old. I worked from home for the back half of today and I took a nice nap, but I woke up pretty sure I had swallowed a bug in my sleep. EVERYTHING WILL FAIL YOU BUT GEOF DARROW. SHAOLIN COWBOY FOR LIFE.
