Emergensea

In this week’s new Dustinland comic, I make fun of the poster from 9-1-1 Season 3. I didn’t even know this was a show until the thumbnail popped up on Netflix. I can only assume it is a pretty bad generic cop/ER drama, just with a little Michael Bay over the top FX sprinkled on.

I know this is really out of the blue but I think it’s funny and it’s nice to take a break from politics for a minute and just laugh at something stupid (stupider than politics that is, if that’s possible).

Easy Watchin

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about the kinds of TV shows I like to watch. I won’t reveal the joke to you now, but I will say there is one exception to what I mention in the comic: Stranger Things. Man, I do love that show. But as for the rest, the comic is pretty on point.

This Is News To Me

This Dustinland was inspired by a rare viewing of cable news I was subjected to the other day. I actually don’t even have cable, which is great because it’s evil on the most part, but that’s another topic.

When I watch cable news networks, I feel like I am being yelled at and bombarded. I don’t understand why people put themselves through this. Nothing is fun about it. Even when they’re talking politics and you agree with the pundits, it’s still not fun. It’s stressful and awful. I like me some BBC or PBS news where it’s more like someone calmly telling me what is happening, rather than trying to freak me out and get a reaction out of me, or even worse, telling me what that reaction should be.

Anyway, I know this isn’t the freshest topic but it hit me the other day so there you have it.
