Days of Despair

This week’s Dustinland comic is about how I fight depression in these dark days. I mean, man, it’s getting pretty bad. When those kids were being taken from their parents, I just didn’t know what to do. I remember drawing an extra comic just to deal with it. Staying up late to do something, anything. Now of course the problem hasn’t be solved, but things are so bad, we’re just happy it’s not getting worse.

Anyway, yeah, if you want to look at it rationally, we are PRETTY fucked. I mean, it’s bad. But emotionally, that can really screw you over unless you just accept it in an eastern “life is suffering” sort of way, or… or I don’t know. You laughing at farting bunny comics.

Blah Whatever

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.
