Bloggy blog blog ...
Merry Holiday that I am just going to call Christmas. If you don't celebrate Christmas (like I don't) I still hope you have a good Christmas. I hope we all get pulled by our socks kicking and screaming to the best day of our lives on the 25th.
Lately work hasn't been AS shitty as normal... which is bad because it is easy to get comfortable at my horrible job because its just not as horrible as I expect it to be when I walk up to that door say to myself "you can leave at any time" and enter.
I don't know if it shows but it bothers me to know I like every part of my life except my job. I really try to avoid bringing up my job here or in conversation because I can't stop myself from getting side tracked into complaining about it. Normally I do a very good job at keeping myself from bringing it up but about 2 weeks ago I was pretty much telling everybody.
The worst part is it hits me twice. One I hate my job and feel like I am qualified and should be working somewhere better. Two I feel so pathetic not just quitting due to money, fear and the average reasons people stay at the job they hate is.
(end hate on job)
So I am going to try a new thing... I am just going to start adding my favorite tweets I did of the week to the Blog... cuz I tweet and I am really good at it.

reMIND Vol 2: Kickstarter
About a year ago I became aware of a comic called reMIND by Jason Brubaker ( who also runs the site/podcast "Making Comics" where you can hear from comic writers/artists and find tips to making your own webcomic .) with . It was on the web posted at reMINDblog.com. I knew I enjoyed that concept and art of the comic but couldn't get myself to sit and read it on the website. Never the less I started following Jasons RSS Feed and his Twitter.
After following him a while he mentioned that some of the printed copies of his book were going to be on sale due to having small damages when they were shipped to him. I ordered a copy and as soon as it arrived I sat down and just read through the whole book.
I personally find books easier to read then text on computer screens or ipoddys but I think part of the reason it was easier for me to zoom through the book is I think Jason wrote/designed/illustrated the book to be a BOOK. So it flows the way a book should flow and not the way a computer should flow.
Then a little later on a little before I started releasing The Tales of Whimsy I wrote a few comic creators I knew of and respected to let them have a look at it before anybody else… AND HE WROTE BACK!
"Hey Neal. Thanks for the email and letting me see your new webcomic. I really like the site and how you are displaying the pages as if they are in a book.
I didn't read through it but I will book mark your site for when you start posting to remind myself to check it out every now and then. Good luck with everything! Talk soon."
Sure it isn't the BIGGEST thing in the world but you know he still spent a bit of his time on me and my little project that is something that shouldn't be taken for granted.
The first books story is about a girl named Sonja and her cat named Victuals who gets brain swapped with a underground dwelling Lizard-Man who's love was turned into a rat… it covers how all that happened.
It ended on a cliffhanger so I am happy the 2nd book is getting made. I would say "finally" but since I work on my comics and know it takes forever it is actually being released fairly speedily. (I was just extremely surprised speedily was a real word) I also know that a lot of effort is put into making these books something special from every page to the cloth spine.
The Kickstarter runs till Aug 22nd so please go and check it out… I really like getting the book at this point. I like knowing my $25 doesn't just buy me a copy of the book but also goes into the book being made.
