This new Dustinland comic is about pants and my lifetime journey from just plain pants, to wide-legged jeans that drag on the ground and get really gross in the rain, to tight hipster pants that work perfectly with my insanely skinny bone-filled body, to today… where I stand at the precipice of the return of baggy pants, coming full circle with my junior high school days.
Today’s new Dustinland comic is about texting, punctuation and a world gone mad. It’s sort of a young Gen Y, older Gen Z thing.

But yeah, apparently you can offend people these days simply by typing a period. On one hand, that’s pretty irritating. On the other hand, it’s extremely stupid. But on the third hand, if you think about it like language and culture, you could go to another country and flash someone a thumbs up or a peace sign, and they could think you’re flipping them off. So really, who’s to say what means anything? Periods, question marks, NFTs, nothing is real, nothing matters, weed is legal, the world is on fire, have a nice day.
To be honest, this new Dustinland comic is just a scheme to go into my YOLO joke. I could have just talked about how You Only Live Once is basically We’re All Gonna Die, but it’s funnier / easier to read in a story, so there you have it. Comics, behind the scenes. Fascinating and unpredictable as always!
Really though, this comic does have a bit of that sitcom zinger feel to it, but again, I do like the basic insight. YOLO is sort of morbid if you think about it. Acknowledging death — in a positive, accepting manner, albeit, but still.
Also, can you say YOLO if you believe in reincarnation? Or would that be TAMLSYBBAITOOYWUAWITNO (There Are Many Lives So You Better Be Awesome In This One Or You’ll Wind Up A Worm In The Next One)!
But seriously folks.
