Throwing you off with the title of this week’s Dustinland comic, ay?! Well the J explains itself pretty quickly. Jim Henson. I just read his biography. What an inspiration. The guy was a creative genius and nearly a saint in his personal life. An example that you can be a good person and do the right thing in life and still be a hugely successful leader and influential artist. And now I’m trying to take what I’ve learned about him and put it toward the election. Because I have tried to stay above the fray, but at times I have been dragged in. I have dealt with it better than most I think, but still… it’s so easy to be mean. It’s funnier. It’s more popular with those who agree with you. But it’s just bad. Bad for everyone. And this country does not need anymore of that. Enough negativity and hate. It’s poisonous for the nation and for each and every one of us. And you can call me a do-gooder if you want.

This week’s Dustinland comic describes my post debate mood. More so directly after the debate rather than the following day, but either way, it’s super depressing. I actually had to take a Benadryl to get to sleep last night, the debates stress me out so much. Instead of inspiring you, they make you feel like shit. It’s a real bummer. Hopefully we’ve hit the bottom but who knows. There’s always worse.

This week’s new Dustinland comic follows further into my homeownership voyage. Definitely more fun to write about than the election, that’s for sure. I wonder how people who don’t own homes will view this strip? Fear? Boredom? Excitement? Either way, the strips will continue as buying a house has consumed my existence, and all my inspiration is from this experience. Joining the club indeed.
