Said by lead singer Oderus Urungus, from the stage at one of Gwar's first shows following the sudden death of guitarist Cory Smoot (Flattus Maximus). Oderus was also quoted as saying, "Fuck you death, you're a fucking asshole," but somehow that didn't have the poetic resonance I was looking for.

I hauled the "Beanbots" characters out of the mothballs for my older daughter's mini-golf birthday party invitation. I gotta start drawing that strip again!
In related news, I tabled at NYCC again this year, even though I didn't have anything to sell but the same old book, and had a really rockin' time. The table rates at that con are way too steep for me to really do anything other than lose my @$$, but gosh do I love watching people leaf through my book and laugh their butts off. Better yet I got to share space with the brilliant artist (and sparkling conversationalist) Jennifer Hayden, whose "Underwire" book has gotten nice writeups in the Onion AVClub, among others. Good times.
