With all due respect, Frank Miller, screw you.

Rob @ 9:23 PM

Comic legend Frank Miller has decided he'd like to be a clueless, batshit insane idiot regarding the Occupy Wall Street movement.

So, since I've suddenly lost all my taste for Miller's work, I decided to get rid of the Miller books I own in a constructive way: I've chucked them up on eBay, starting at a penny, and my proceeds from the sale will be spent entirely on supplies I shall bring to the Occupy Wall Street campers at Zuccotti Park.

May The Goddamn Batman have mercy on Frank's poor, misguided soul.

Junta de Elecciones

Rob @ 10:16 AM

I'm 34 today. Good for me!

I shall be out of communications range for most of the day; not on birthday stuff, but on errands and assorted SRS BSNS.

Labelled by the GOVERNMENT.
Last Tuesday was a bit different for me: I spent that whole day working for the Government. Really! It was all very hush-hush stuff... I was an election inspector.

I took the gig because I was free that day, I was curious about what goes on behind-the-scenes at an election, and it was something I hadn't done before. It was a low-importance election as these things go, just some local judges, council members, and such rather than Congresscritters or President, but the gig turned out more enjoyable than I thought it'd be. I was lucky enough to get assigned to my own local polling place, that being the grade school I went to as a kid which is a short walk from my house. I got assigned to work with a group of easygoing and friendly folks who made interesting conversation. Most of my day involved marvelling over how much shorter everything had gotten since the early 1980s. I did this sketch of the place during bouts of downtime. And, ultimately, I learned some neat stuff about how that whole process works.
