Read this + file it under the crucial “staggeringly irresponsible childhood entertainment venues” category next to Action Park.
I DID A COMIC. It involves anthropomorphism jokes and Minnesota jokes and sports jokes and preposterous facial expressions. It is part of City Pages’ annual comix issue along with a ton of great comics and I am pretty happy with that.
Can a person who writes about beat-based popular music also draw things involving animal-people facing whimsical Upper Midwest-centered mishaps? Maybe.

Looks like an H.B. Halicki joint, The Junkman — which, if it’s anything like his Gone in 60 Seconds, is patently ridiculous in a way they just don’t make anymore..
For Willis, if your revolutionary thinking didn’t accurately reflect reality, it couldn’t change reality. In her version of liberation, sexual revolutionaries aren’t smug, performative hedonists who play out their fantasies in villas on Mustique; they wonder instead how thin the line is between courage and delusion while drinking coffee alone in their apartments or sitting on benches outside the Laundromat. And rock writers don’t turn their prose up to 11 to compete with the bands they’re covering, or get so bound up in the role of gnomic wizard that they can’t just shrug their shoulders and say, as Willis did, well, I was wrong about the Ramones; they admit to communing with what she called “the screaming teenager” inside. To Willis, acknowledging the real meant acknowledging that we are minds connected to bodies, and that what may not seem real at all — the unconscious and the psyche — are very powerful forces. Nearly every piece is a reminder that the culture we live in, even when we don’t profess its prevailing beliefs, has an effect on the psyche; that we internalize expectations even when we think we’re free; that we need to gather in groups to change our minds and the minds of others, because otherwise we stand alone in our pain and confusion, thinking that we’re the problem. — NYT, on The Essential Ellen Willis (via katherinestasaph)
