GSM 01.25 Gus vs. Sarah

No Comments on GSM 01.25 Gus vs. Sarah

I guess this is as close as Grandpa Sex Machine gets to political humor.  What it boils down to–the essential nugget of sociopolitical truth that I’m trying to get at here–is this:  Tina Fey is cute.  Vote Obama.

(If you are reading this post on Facebook, you’ll probably need to go to the original post to see the comic.)

I’ve been reading DJ Coffman’s blog a lot lately.  I came for the comic-business drama and stayed for the social commentary.  He’s predicting a landslide for Obama.  I’m not as confident, but hopeful.  DJ has talked a lot about the rampant racism in Pennsylvania.  Seeing the footage of political rallies and demonstrations there really drives that point home.  The whole situation seems to suggest that the McCain campaign’s recent certainty that they can turn PA from a blue state to a red state has more to do with them trying to exploit that racism than anything related to real politics.  Ugly stuff.

The other cool thing about DJ’s blog is it introduced me to the music of the Flobots.  Good stuff.  I could listen to “Handlebars” all day long.

Whatever your political views, please vote tomorrow (if you haven’t done so already).  Apathy sucks balls.  The predicted massive voter turn-out is definitely encouraging.

Well this just sucks.

DJ Coffman posted this yesterday, and I just got around to reading it now. Pretty lousy news. If you haven’t been reading Hero By Night, it’s really good stuff–DJ has really made an effort to re-capture the fun-ness of Kirby-era superheroes.  Show some support for DJ and the HBN–go buy all the back-issues you can get your hands on.  Probably too late to make any real difference, but at least you’ll have a stack of high quality reading.

…is advertising HERE!  Check that stuff out, man!  I was pretty excited to see that D.J. Coffman’s Hero by Night bid on advertising here, but now the contest that turned D.J. from a comics curmudgeon into a giddy comics superstar has also chosen to use my humble site to promote itself.  Very cool.  So check them out (last years’s winner, Jorge Vega’s Gunplay, is super-cool, too), and enter your own comic–before the end of the month!
