Hey, Hooligan! Thanks for all the birthday wishes.

I published this comic review for a friend on YouTube:



I'm sorry I haven't been around DA much lately. Last month, Tiff and I had to take an emergency trip to Florida... I won't get into too much detail, but the short story is Tiff's sister is being held against her will by a couple she's been living with for a while who's gaslighting her, in part because she has some cognitive impairment (formerly known as "mental retardation") as a result of a high fever after her birth, which makes it easier for people to take advantage of her.

Tiff and I just weren't aware that this was a problem until we got a sudden phone call from her, unlike anything we'd heard before (and she calls here to talk to their mother daily), saying she was hiding out in the garage, hoping no one would catch her making the call, and could we come and get her because she couldn't stay there any more. I don't really know the details of what kind of abuse she's going through -- we're pretty sure the couple she's staying with is pocketing her SSI checks. And we couldn't really afford to drive down there (over 1k miles), but we did it anyway, and while I don't regret it, it all went sideways at the end and we weren't able to get to her.

Long story short, at this moment we can't really do anything more than file reports with Adult Protective Services, so it's a long, painful process now.

The trip knocked a couple weeks out of my work schedule (4-5 days for the trip and several more days of recovering at home, licking our wounds) and I've not been able to get another comic strip made, in part because I've been focused on another political satire video for YouTube. I'm really enjoying that work, though I do feel a little unhappy about the sluggishness of my comics. But I have to accept that sometimes life gets in the way and I've had plenty of reasons for delay the past month or so.

My birthday is on Nov 5, Guy Fawkes day -- named for a guy who tried and failed to blow up the English parliament. ;P He was also the inspiration for V for Vendetta. I try not to make a big deal about my birthday, but because it's always around election day, every couple years I'm always telling people "VOTE!" :|

I'm pretty happy with the election results. There's still a lot of work to be done, but it's movement in the right direction. :D I'm pretty encouraged to see better representation in our public offices -- two Muslim congresswomen, two Indian congresswomen, the first gay governor in Colorado, and a record number of women in congress, now over 100 :boogie: (out of 535, so again, still lots more work to do).

How are you doing? I hope you had an awesome week!

Hi! I'm Sam and I create Laughter for a Better World! You can help us do that by joining us on Patreon! Or just check out and share our comics at Woohooligan!

I have lots of sources of inspiration, my top three being the Daily Show's John Stewart, Adam Conover and George Carlin. Others include Gary Larson, Warner Brothers cartoons, public radio and cognitive science. I'm always looking for new material and challenging new projects.

And now I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Bob Dylan: "any man not busy being born is busy dying." :nod:

Hellbent: Slouch to Bethlehem p18
I'm really happy with the art on this page. :D

It also mentions rape, which is of course a dangerous subject for a comedian, although I think I've handled it well.

Slouch to Bethlehem p16
Hey, Hooligans! I forgot to post this here last week when the page went live. D'oh!

Amity continues to lament carrying Lucifer's antichrist baby... and the seven deadly sins may not be quite what you expect.

Hey, Hooligan!

I'm leaving the house in a few hours to drive up to Grand Rapids MI where I'll be sharing a table at Grand Con with my friend Ryan Wellever! :D

It's my first time at Grand Con and Ryan's first time tabling anywhere. Wish us luck!

Otherwise I've got a lot of ideas for new comics and videos, I just don't seem to have the time to get them done as quickly as I'd like. The eternal struggle.  ;P

I'm thinking about doing a short, 10-15 minute video when I get back mocking the anonymous NYT Op-Ed "I'm Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration". That whole thing is just hysterical to me. ;P

How are you all doing? What projects are you working on?
I was tagged by FireNationPhoenix Hug

1. Marvel or DC?
Marvel. I know they have their Galactuses, but I always felt the marvel characters were more relatable.

Deadpool became my all-time favorite when they gave him his own title. The first 26 issues were amazingly well written, dealing with ideas of fate/destiny, free will, responsibility, etc. Subsequent stuff has been good comedy, but that first 26 issue arc was what hooked me.

2. Weirdest thing that has happened at work or school?
... fuck if I remember... two of the four high-schools I attended no longer exist... and I had a ton of jobs, but nothing "weird" is springing to mind.

3. Have you been to any Disney park?
When I was a kid, yeah, my parents were rich for a while and took us to Disney World in FL.

4. Favorite 80's song?
I truly can't pick one. The one I heard most recently, and definitely in my list of favorites, Africa by Toto.

5. Cats or dogs?
Cats. Dogs are too much work. Though lately our cats are giving them a run... Dexter whines for me to pet him almost every time I enter the room now.

6. If you could have any power, what would it be?
Read minds... but that's primarily because most people actually have that power (to a limited extent) and I was born without it. (Autism)

It also manifested in an intense interest in con movies like Ocean's Eleven and Focus because those characters understand people in a way that's always been really hard for me.

7. Do you believe aliens exist?
Probably.

8. Most overrated Disney movie?
Toss up between Cinderella and Fantasia, although to be fair, I think Disney movies as a whole are incredibly overrated.

9. Corgis or Shibes?
Neither.

10. Favorite video game?
Mega Man II ... despite the fact that I enjoy it, I've never actually finished it. ;P

I may come back and tag a few people later... Busy with some work at the moment.

Long time no see, woohooligan.
I've got some REALLY bad news for the internet as a whole.
It might even mean the death of the free internet.
(Text copied from 'fight for the future foundation'.)

Last week, WikiLeaks released the final text of the TPP’s intellectual property rights chapter and it is absolutely terrifying.

These are just a few of its most dangerous pieces:

  • Compel ISPs to take down websites without any sort of court order, just like SOPA. (Appendix Section I)

  • Extend the US’s copyright regime to require copyrights stand for life plus 70 years, preventing anyone from using works that belong in the public domain. (Article QQ.G.6)

  • Criminalize whistleblowing by extending trade secrets laws without any mandatory exemptions for whistleblowers or investigative journalists. (QQ.H.8)

  • End anonymity online by forcing every domain name to be associated with a real name and address. (Article QQ.C.12)

  • Make it illegal to unlock, modify, or generally tinker with a device you own. (Article QQ.G.10)

  • Export the US’s broken copyright policies to the rest of the world without expanding any of the free speech protections, like fair use. (Article QQ.G.17)

The worst part is that this is just one of the TPP’s 30 chapters.

The final text confirms our worst fears — click here to take action demanding Congress vote NO on the TPP.

For years, governments have held critics of the massive Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement in a perfect catch 22. Officials brushed off public outcry and concern by claiming that the dissenters didn’t have all the facts.

This was by design—the 12 country trade deal was negotiated entirely behind closed doors by industry lobbyists and government appointees, and even now the text of the agreement is still classified.

But late last week, WikiLeaks released the final text of the Intellectual Property chapter, meaning those excuses won’t work anymore.

We’re planning to go all out against the TPP, but the first step is to make sure Congress knows just how many people oppose the TPP.

Click here to take action demanding Congress vote NO on the TPP.

Taking action today is just the beginning, because if all we do is send emails and make phone calls, Congress is not going to reject the TPP. Too many giant industries are seriously invested in making sure Congress ratifies the TPP.

If we’re going to win, we need to go big. Which is exactly what we’re going to do.

So take action right now. Contact your Congresspeople now and tell them to vote against the TPP. Then get ready to do more because we’re going to unleash some of our strongest campaigns ever.

Already we have plans to work with hundreds of different groups as a massive coalition to fight the TPP, coordinate gigantic on-the-ground protests in key cities across the country, and produce compelling content to spread the word to as many different audiences as possible just what is at stake in the TPP.

To do all that, we need your help — if you can, pledge to chip in $5 every month between now and when the TPP fight ends so that we can run our biggest, boldest, and best campaign yet.

Thanks for all you do,
Charlie

P.S. Want to read the text of the chapter for yourself? Check it out on WikiLeaks here, or read their overview of it here. It’s long and complicated, so maybe you'll see something that we didn't. If you do, send us an email.

(Please spread the word.)
