progress report

I just finished page 20 of Pizza Wizard #2. I only have about two more regular pages and the bottom strips to finish (you see, I'm cheating a bit, one page will be all small strips, ads, and games, and the back page will be info, ads, small strips, fan art, etc.). I can't wait for this to be finished, then I can work on other (secret) projects before tackling the third and final issue. Either way, this one is going to pretty darn good all the same, I promise.
Also, you can look forward to a new 3" CD-R release by Synt.Tofs on Faux-Pas guaranteed, and eventually (hopefully) other recordings by Crank Sturgeon, John Thill, and a split from Jacob Berendes and Tumblecat Poof Poofy Poof. I just have to ask them first.

new electronics

A real easy project, cut off one end of a guitar cable, attach it to the contacts on the ear piece (make sure the two sides don't touch), talk into that shit. I moved the speaker down into the normal talking area, and it doesn't sit very well, but it creates a cooler visual, I think. (Sorry I effed up your phone, Jake).

Shut Up! Button
From the inside of a stuffed SpongeBob Squarepants, he had a button in his nose and arm which made him speak. Hitting the button mid-sentence shuts him up with a cool squelch. Pressing both with rapid-fire results in wacky sounds and manic gibberish.

Rap Pack
I put too much stuff in this and it won't close, but now I can just press on the casing to change the speed because it actually puts pressure on the motor. The contacts on the side add some extra crackling when touched, and can stop it entirely when connected with wire.

Stonewall Jackson is officially making a 7" with Ormolycka before Rusty moves to Portland, Oregon for a year, most likely to be a greatest hits of sorts.

It's gonna rule.

My own tiny label feels real.

Sam Gas Can: "Hot Dog!" CD-R FAX001
Faux-Pas Recordings

A random assortment of blips and burps from the last few years including remixes, circuit-bent giggles, vocal experimentation, extremely short acoustic songs, recordings of outside sounds, and a wide variety of static. Comes in a hand-made (but machine-sewn) fabric pouch with a non-informational insert and cool holographic eagle sticker. Edition of 36.

Stonewall Jackson: "s/t" CD-R FAX 002
Faux-Pas Recordings

Featuring Rusty Spoons on synth and Sam Gas Can on drums, electronic dance noise in the tradition of Extreme Animals and Neon Hunk. DVD case with 2-color silkscreened covers, photocopied insert, and rainbow roll screened and hand-stamped discs (each one is different). Edition of 60.

And now, I am out of money. I hope to continue doing these small-run releases when I do (and when I have more material), operating on the same level as Unskilled Labor and Bonescraper. It's more of a thing to give to friends than anything else.

For Wetter or for Burst

I made this in 2004 because of the horrible misprint (the red ink on her face). It's one of the few things that I made then that I can still smile about.

What Went Wrong

When I die, someone will ask, "How did he spend his life?"

Then, someone who knows will reply, "He wasted it drawing thousands of tiny triangles".

We are 138.

Sometimes, I even impress myself, but only sometimes. Eventually will be a patch or something.
