Drastic 217: Seriously, where's the Cagney & Lacey Movie?

FINALLY

Yeah, I know, I suck. Stupid life getting in the way of doing comics. Seriously, I have a ton written, but I literally haven’t had the energy to draw one. Quick life tip: No matter what you may think, self destructive behaviour isn’t eccentric and charming. I know the clues in the name, but come on.

Seriously, Shatner would be a great Hannibal Smith. It’d be beyond great. He’s completely gone off the deep end and just doesn’t care. How magnificent is that?? Bill Shatner is the embodiment of how awesome it is to be old. I mean, once you reach a certain age, you can literally stop giving a shit and so whatever you want, with very little consequence. Its exactly like being in your twenties, but you’ll have money and if you drop dead, its not as big of a deal. Sure it’ll be sad, once you hit 65, most people will be surreptitiously checking their watches and places bets on when you snuff it. It’s a fact of life, you can’t escape it.

I got my hands on the new Queens of the Stone Age album, Era Vulgaris. I still have no idea what to think of it. It’s easily one of the most unique sounding records I’ve heard this year, but is it any good?? I’m still not sure. It does sound like Radiohead took a whole bunch of coke and speed and decided to rock the fuck out, though. So I guess it has that going in its favour. I uploaded 6 of the tracks for you to check out and see for yourself.

The track are : Turning the Screw, Sick Sick Sick, I’m Designer, Battery Acid, 3’s & 7’s and Suture up your Future. Like I said, it’s a really interesting album to listen to, so check it out. Sick Sick Sick is pretty much all over the place, and is a good indication of what the main direction of this album is. I really hope “I’m designer” gets more exposure as it’s a genuinely creepy song and a lot of fun.

So, I lost an Eagle Award to Penny Arcade. I’m pissed that I lost, but still honoured I was nominated. I really want to thank everyone who voted for me, that was awesome. Thanks guys.

See you on Friday.
