…though I should have an End of Civilization post up tomorrow. Sorry, gang, I’ve had some long days of late and my blogging muse has temporarily flown the coop, apparently. I’m not asleep, I’m just resting my eyes.
Here’s a thing about my site that you probably don’t know about. When I started, waaaay back when, the plan was to some some kind of audio programming…I’m not sure “podcasting” was even a thing in late 2003, but I had half an idea of somehow broadcasting my dulcet tones across the internettings and into your earbuds. (Hmmmm…”PODgressive Ruin,” maybe?) I even have a soundboard here donated to me by pal Dorian toward such a purpose.
Alas, that never came to pass, but “never say never” I suppose, as someday the bug may bite me and I’ll put the effort into actually speaking to you, instead of hunting and pecking at the keyboard with this pen in my mouth, please, someone send help, I’ve been tied up here for days. Anyway, I created a subdomain on this site back before I even posted my first post, and that subdomain is right here. No idea where I snapped that clip art, though I’m pretty sure the coloring of said clip art is my fault. Also, that’s your reminded that my original color scheme for the site was going to be bright green lettering on a dark background, like the clunky ol’ personal computers of my rapidly receding youth. Friends advised me “that’ll make me want to put my eyes out,” so I wisely opted not to go with those colors.
It’s also a reminder that I should never use the phrase “coming soon” because that’s almost a guarantee I’ll not get around to it. Or only get around to it grudingly.
Well, enough about that. Remember, a new End of Civilization is coming…er, soon. Yeah.

Hi pals…I realize posting and content on this here website thingie has been a little more slight than usual lately. I’ll be back up to speed soon, but I need a bit of time to recharge the ol’ batteries. Thanks for understanding!
I’ve been ill, so my online shenanigans have been curtailed. I’ll be back up to speed next week, with any luck.
Sorry, pals. It needs to sit on the stove a little longer before I serve it up.
In the meantime, get a load of this.
…with this being the least of it, so I’m just going to contemplate card #49 from my complete set of Superman III trading cards:
…and relax while basking in the glory of Richard Pryor.
I may or may not be in Low Content Mode this week, but I’m certainly in Low Content Mode today, hence:
- Congratulations and / or my sympathies to my blogging brother Tim on his ten year reign.
- Employee Aaron’s wife Kempo has drawn Judge Dredd. If this is how he appeared in that most recent movie, maybe it would have made money.
- Yes, I’ve seen the Onion article. And they’re wrong; those are the only two movies. Well, and The Spirit, too.
…I’m taking the rest of the week off. I’ll be back Monday, though I may have some kind of thing on Saturday. We’ll see.
In the meantime, that Swamp Thing cartoon I posted here the other day? You can totally get that as a high quality print now. Tell ‘em your pal Mike sent you! (And they’ll respond with “…Who?”)
See you Monday (or maybe Saturday).
Hopefully I will be at the Los Angeles Zoo today, taking pictures of buff-cheeked gibbons and pointing imprudently at the mighty mandrill. In the meantime, all of you behave yourselves and also try not to think about why, why
Superman would keep these innocent creatures in such inappropriately tiny cages.
UPDATE: Alas, the trip is postponed. The mandrills are safe…for now.

I suppose those of you who have not yet transcended desktop or laptop computing could just hover your pointer-mouse-thingie over the image and see the URL that’s linked there, but what’s the fun in that? Don’t ask, just click it and enjoy a swell pic by Jon Wolter.
