CTJ Adds Extra Ham to Bethlehem: New Christmas Cartoon

CTJ Adds Extra Ham to Bethlehem: New Christmas Cartoon

Yes folks, that is indeed She-Ra masquerading as the Angel of the Lord. A good enough reason for me to say “Fear not!” unto you. The shepherds and cow below belong to a nativity scene my family used to set out each December when I was a child. I often played with the figurines as...

I Met My Wife Because I Made a Christmas Record: Download the LP for FREE

In the summer of 2004, my friends Matt and Rebecca Fillingham gave me a copy of a Christmas album they made together as husband and wife. Being perpetually nine-years-old in my mind, my 25-year-old self listened to it and instantly replied, “I want to make a Christmas record, too!” That fall, beginning in early October,...

Rubblebucket Tours for "Omega La La" LP, Sings Omega Lullabye for Evie

Rubblebucket Tours for “Omega La La” LP, Sings Omega Lullabye for Evie

I was already off work this week, attempting to help the wife keep our almost 3-week-old daughter from sabotaging sanity and sleep alike, but it was Rubblebucket that really made my week. It’s one thing to take perverse joy in the knowledge that your coworkers are handling all the “TPS reports” without you, and another...

The Assassination of JF(Burger)K(ing): Meeting Doodle #242

I doodle during meetings at work in order to keep my mind from wandering. But sometimes my mind wanders into even weirder territory when the doodles begin to take shape. I still pay attention to the meeting, which explains some of the incoherence of the resulting doodles (i.e. see the inexplicable lower portion of a...

Sock Monkey: "Sock Puppet Murder Manifesto" EP (Free MP3 Download)

Sock Monkey: “Sock Puppet Murder Manifesto” EP (Free MP3 Download)

Danny J. Gibson and I wrote and recorded this together in one day in the summer of 1999 at his parents’ house in Meadville, MO. It is absolutely terrifying. We were both 20 at the time. Danny created the art for this cassette-only release, which was only reproduced twice – once for me, and once for...
