This week’s new Dustinland comic is about how life is telling me to slow down, but the rest of me is fighting the urge, even though I know it is the most beneficial approach. You know, in terms of happiness. But sometimes I think happiness is boring. Not happiness, but rather contentedness. You know, meditation, quietness, simple things — it’s just been done before.
I don’t know what I am talking about. Sorry for rambling. In other news, I drew this comic last week when the government was taking babies from their parents. But you know, because they’re immigrants, it’s okay. That’s America! Can you believe it? Who’d a thunk it would get to this point, where each day they trot out a new moral outrage just to see what they can get away with. How far can they push it and have us still take it, or even worse, enjoy it! Well, you can see why I made the new comic I just did.
This week’s new Dustinland comic is a depressing look at how shitty America has become. I wonder if we can ever fix this? Hard to say. Even if we get rid of the losers causing all this suffering, I think we have done irreparable damage to the nation in the eyes of the world. That being said, if we survive it and come out on top, it’s a good lesson for the world. You can’t sleep on evil. It never goes away, and as for America being the world police, well… who watches the watchmen?

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about me explaining Trump to my son. This conversation never actually happened, since I try to shield him from this horrible world we’re in, but we have had to talk a few times because he hears stuff at school and on the radio when I’m not quick enough to change the station. Basically he knows Trump is a racist liar, but that’s about it. But you know, when you try to explain things to a kid, you really make it clearer for yourself. Laying things out so simply, in basic language, it really helps. Try it sometime! Not actually with a real kid of course, but just imagine yourself doing it. Works for many a complex issue!
PS My hand is healing nicely! Still not perfect, still hurts a bit to draw. But hopefully I’ll be 100% soon and my art will get back to where it was, AKA still shitty but slightly less shitty.

This new Dustinland comic is about how I am super paranoid about ticks ever since my kid got a few. So far no Lyme! On any of us. But I know a lot of people who live around here who have gotten it. Also people who got it out at the beach when they hiked around in the dunes. Man, these bugs. Can we get a vaccine or something? I heard they had one but it was shitty or something like that, or maybe the anti-vaccination people ruined it. I dunno. Bugs. I need to get one of those little monkeys that picks bugs off each other. He can live at my house and check us after we come back from the park.
