Death is Good book kickstarter project

After three years building up the Death is Good line of t-shirts, I am finally ready to put out a book collection. I need to get it to the printer by the end of September in order to meet my goal of having copies in hand by New York Comic Con. In the hopes of making the first run as large as possible (thus allowing me more opportunities to get the book out to stores), I've put up a Kickstarter project. If you pledge $15, you will get a copy of the book when it is ready. There are also higher pledge amounts with premiums including stickers, t-shirts and hoodies. I'm not looking for charity, just hoping some people who have seen and enjoyed the characters will want to, in essence, "pre-order" the book to help the effort. Thanks :)

So who is still on LJ?

I haven't posted on here in nearly two years, and I'll admit it's because of Facebook... because it was a lot easier to contact a whole lot more of my old friends there, etc, etc... but lately I more and more find myself thinking the posting format there is not conducive to complicated thoughts, and thinking about posting stuff here again. I just wonder if anyone's reading...


This shirt is actually a very old inside joke, but it turned out so good I thought I'd put it on the site in case anyone else wants one, too.

Death is Good™ t-shirts

I'm launching an entire line of t-shirts under the brand name "Death is Good™". This idea started out purely as an idea for a parody of the "Life is Good" shirts, but I think it is going to wind up having an identity of it's very own. The basic premise is Death trying to have fun and be "good" on his time off from work...

I have at least 20 designs already created but I'm rolling them out a few at a time. They are all printed on recycled cotton, both because the shirts themselves have a pretty cool appearance, and because I thought it would be rather appropriate for the subject.


Freak Day at King's Dominion t-shirts

Since this is the 20th(!) year of Freak Day at King's Dominion, Slash and I decided to create a commemorative t-shirt. Since the turnout is so unpredictable (what size and shape the people who will be there, in particular, is hard to predict), I've set up a page where people can pre-order shirts. I'll be printing them on Friday, so if you're going to be there and want me to bring you a shirt guaranteed to be in your size, go here and pre-order by Thursday evening:

Here's the front and back image:

If you're just getting one, use the top option that says "FREE DELIVERY". If you want more than one, use the other option to order the rest after the 1st. My shopping cart doesn't allow for a coupon function (I'm doing something about it but it won't be ready before Friday), so I just set one shirt up that is priced to compensate for the shipping charge.

random things on eBay

I'm selling a bunch of random things on eBay, mostly in an effort to help my work get rid of things that have accumulated around the office. Some of the items are still sitting at 99 cents, so might be a bargain for the right person...

Watchmen movie = brilliant

Seriously, all y'all picking the movie apart for little bits you wish had been different should take a step back and realise just what an amazing piece of work this film is. There was no way to perfectly adapt the graphic novel to the screen without making it 12 hours long, and the story as portrayed was amazing.

Two other things:
1. Unless you have ever bitched up and down because a movie contained too many shots of breasts or otherwise naked women, STFU about the blue penis already.
2. Seeing the actor who played Kelly in the Bad News Bears movies pull off an amazing portrayal of Rorschach was worth the price of admission all by itself.

This is one of the few movies I've seen in the last 20 years that actually had me leaving the theater thinking, "I have to see that again."
