Sorry I missed last week. I had the choice to watch the Super Bowl or draw a comic and I choose Super Bowl. And now I’m also a day late this week. Because of work. Yeah man, life makes cartooning hard. But Trump makes it easy! As per this week’s new Dustinland comic, which is my impression of our social media feeds these days. Pretty shitty. All Trump, all the time. I usually hate the Grammy’s but this year it was nice because at least people were talking about music instead of Trump. I mean, there was plenty of Trump there too but at least not 100% Trump.
Uh… silver lining… at least people are involved now? Maybe that whole burn it down so we can really fix it theory will work after this? That’s the best I can do.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Check him out right here.
By the way, I had been telling him to do this for years but he would just respond “No.” Either that or he would throw an ax at me.
When I was in college, there was no Myspace. No Friendster. People didn’t even have cell phones or iPods. So now finally Facebook is catching on big with people my age, people who couldn’t be a part of the original site back when it was strictly a college thing. And let me tell you, people come out of the woodwork on this site worse than they ever did on Myspace or any other site I’ve been a part of. But the thing I don’t get, the thing I talk about in this week’s Dustinland, is this: why would you search for someone from your past, send them a message, then not reply back once they respond to you? I can see just clicking “Add as friend” but once you go through the trouble to send a message, you’re saying, hello, I’d like to start a dialogue with you. And okay, fine. I have no problem send a paragraph of email to someone I haven’t seen since second grade if that’s what they want. But don’t leave me hanging then. Don’t leave me feeling like I’m the asshole begging for a friend here. It’s like asking someone out on a date, then not picking them up. Unbelievable. I know a lot of this can be attributed to laziness but that’s no excuse. I think our generation is just too ADD. Nobody has the time for anything anymore. People used to write letters. Now they can’t even type in a few sentences.
