This new Dustinland comic is basically what it’s like to be my friend. You say something innocent in passing, and I dissect it in an annoying fashion, completely ruining your train of thought for my own amusement. But I am bored by life so I must do these things to find joy.
This week’s new Dustinland comic is about the mental fortitude required to not lose your mind amidst the madness of life in 2019. Not daily life for most of us, but rather the news cycle. The horrible things we hear happening to other people day in and day out, whether it’s Americans getting mowed down in Walmart or people in third world countries getting blown up on their way to work or any of the other awful things we learn about 24/7. I hear that hope is essential for inner peace, but man, it’s hard right now. Things look grim. I mean, Siberia is on fire right now. We really are super fucked. But I guess hey, soldier on, right?!
I hope people understand this week’s Dustinland comic is satirical. I mean, I do sort of explain it in the first frame, but I am still a bit afraid of dumb dumbs not getting it and going all woke avenger on me. Not that I am against wokeness. I’m just against the combination of wokeness and stupidity, especially when wielded against purveyors of comedy.
Really though, if someone actually could get Trump supporters to actually care about (or even believe in) climate change, that would be nice. Trump would still probably do nothing about it, but at least that would be a start. I think they’ll start believing when something horrible happens to them — drought, fire etc… Just like all the Republicans politicians who were in the pockets of the insurance companies until their summer homes were destroyed by hurricanes and they didn’t get paid due to insurance loopholes. Suddenly they cared!
Meh, it’s too early for a rant (and unfortunately too early to start drinking).
Mad Magazine is gone, and this week’s new Dustinland comic is in celebration of a classic publication. So influential, a home to so many great artists and satirists… now a victim of the modern, digital era. Unable to pull at Nat Geo and reinvent itself for the days of Instagram, or even the days of peak television, it’s going away forever. And I’m so grateful I had the chance to work with them.
Just for a while, I got to be… one of the usual gang of idiots.
