Apologies and Mindfreaks

Well, it seems that I'm once again behind schedule.

I do, however, have a bit of a consolation prize until I get that rear in gear and catch up with the current Ziggy. Do you remember when you found out that Eric Clapton had been the guitarist for a metal band, or that Bob Saget was a filthy, filthy comedian before starring in Full House? Finding out that somebody behind something mainstream has a subversive undercurrent can be exciting. This one is absolutely priceless.

Sally Forth
writer Francesco Marciuliano has been doing a webcomic for quite some time, one that I've been aware of but whose origin I've never known. (Yes, I'm talking about this Sally Forth.) It's called Medium Large and it's a webcomic in every sense of the word, with smurf murder and profanity and everything. Check out his neat June 20 riff on Ziggy:

Like most great parody, it's barely an exaggeration:

(An actual Ziggy.)

Read Medium Large. More tomorrow.

Was I actually equated to Clapton and Saget? Wow, I've certainly read worse things about me. Hurtful, hurtful things. Things that would make you want to go to Ziggy's murder doc...Wait, where was I?

Oh, right. Thanks for the plug!
