catrambo reports on the reading tonight here in Portland — I've dropped the ball on promoting this, but 6:30 pm at the Press Club in SE Portland, with jeffvandermeer, catrambo, tattoo artist-turned-author Jeff Johnson and my own bad self.

Goth scuplture — In an earlier sense of the term. Cool stuff. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

Thorax... 9 Chickweed Lane's Edda's Grandmother's boyfriend is a seriously weird suspender-wearing talks-to-god-who-talks-back kind of guy named Thorax.

from wikipedia:
Thorax - Gran's gentleman friend, brilliant and odd beyond all description but utterly sweet. Apparently a large, amiable elderly farmer, he does not appear to be quite human, and has a quantum anomaly in his shed. It is uncertain whether Thorax uses this quantum anomaly to break through the barriers of space, time and dimension in order to appear in McEldowney's other online strip, Pibgorn, but he plays a significant role in several story arcs there.

I love the term "right-wing self-victimizers" because it is so very true. For a political ideology that shrieks 24/7 about personal responsibility they sure like to wallow in self-pity and blame everyone else for their own limitations....
