10 Minute Comics
one white paw
An old dog passes. It has one white paw, like Michael Jackson. A hipster toughs out the thirty-degree heat in a floppy deerstalker and thick rubber gardening wellies. Shirtless men parade the prom like sweaty peacocks in perpetual mating season. This is the beach; a world of faded tribal tattoos, hot lifeguards, and all the beauty and horror of humanity, laid out on towels under the sun like thinking bacon.
In the summer of 2011, the beach is where Stuart Millard made his home; observing, people-watching, and taking copious amounts of notes, like a surf-hobo Samuel Pepys. He emerged some 20,000 words later, with a farmer’s tan, and the Beach Diaries. Uncovering the narrative behind the mundane, with a metaphorical plastic child’s spade, Millard’s accounts of those days are now available together for the first time, to give your Kindle an eclectic, endless summer.
Hello Sir and/or Madam of Tumblr. I’ve got a new thing out. It’s £0.99/$0.99, and you can find out more by pointing clicking here: http://franticplanet.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/get-some-sand-in-your-kindle/
Following on from that last post, here’s my Top 10. Agree? Disagree? Come on, we’re all nerds here, let’s hear it (in the comment section at the link, don’t just shout into the sky - what are you, stupid?!).
Anonymous asked: I had to unfollow you because of sucker punch. I don't think it's okay to justify something horribly misogynist with "the chicks are hot and since it's not me/anyone I identify with being disrespected and shamed, who cares?" Getting off on good looking women is not a bad thing. But we need your help making sure the hot women are also full, respected human beings instead of slut shamed puppets without agency.
I think (hope) it’s pretty clear I was being more than a little ironic in my Sucker Punch review, playing off the over the top “ARRG! ZACK SNYDER IS A RAPIST!” rage that was thrown at it when it came out. I don’t even think it’s a misogynistic movie, it’s just a dumb one, like if a 14 year old boy was given the money to make a film. I wasn’t sitting there fiddling with myself as I watched or anything.
Maybe my comments in the Bridesmaids review balance out the idea that I’m some women-hating monster, just a bit.
(I did ponder replying to this with “Thanks for your thoughts, toots *ruffles pretty little head*” but then thought better of it)
When I’m not drawing comics about semen, I’m also a massive movie nerd who writes a ton about films. As is annual tradition, here’s the first half of my Top 20 movies of the year. Go nuts.
Anonymous asked: How many more copies of your books do I have to buy for you to write new blogs and draw more comics?
ALL OF THEM, UNTIL AMAZON RUNS DRY
But no, I’ll really be back to posting comics in the next week or so. And we’re getting close to end-of-the-year movie list blogs too, so there’ll be plenty of that before too long.
Now I’m afraid I must follow this up with another disgraceful advert.
