New Citizens

(EDIT 2015: Added header image.)
New header! I've been putting this off for a while, I tried to draw all sorts of people and things to populate the foreground, but nothing looked right. I guess I can always add things later.

Oh, god! This picture has been in the backlog for ages, I didn't know how to colour it and tried many backgrounds, but nothing stuck. I guess I still like it.

I originally drew these pig-carrying socialists to populate the new blog header but it didn't look right, so here they are: HAPPY FREE PIG DAY!

I've cut down on the number of podcasts I listen to now. Tell 'em Steve-Dave tops the list as my favourite new podcast, it's by Kevin Smith's New Jersey friends: Bryan Johnson, Walt Flanagan and Brian Quinn. I feel that it's funnier than SModcast, which in all honesty has gotten a bit stale.

Another View Askew-niverse podcast I've started to listen to is Highlands: A Peephole History which features the above-mentioned Kevin Smith, Bryan Johnson and Walt Flanagan talking about their history in Highlands, New Jersey.

Tweet Me Harder is a funny and at times surreal podcast by web-comic artists David Malki with Kris Straub.

Making the return cut:
No Agenda
This American Life (I finally finished going through the archives, all 411 episodes)
Planet Money
This Week In Tech
Red Centre
The History of Rome
Hardcore History
Common Sense with Dan Carlin
Creative Screenwriting
American Society of Cinematography

Watching: Gran Torino by Clint Eastwood
Reading: The Botany of Desire by Micheal Pollan
Listening To: Sonic Youth - Sonic Nurse
