Hello all and welcome to my most excellent web page! My goal in adding this page to the WTS is to entertain my fellow toasters, and maybe even a small segment of the rest of the Web. I'll endeavor to add something new every week, so keep checking in, or look for any announcements about my pages in The Wunderland Weekly News.
My offerings will fall into two categories: First, original works; artwork, music, photos, or writing that I'm collecting here for self-publication on a scale unimaginable a few years ago. Hopefully, the world's collective yawn won't totally blow me over, but I think you'll enjoy it if you've gotten this far. Second, Stuff I Found On The Web, brought back and held up to the light for your enjoyment. There's a whole underground world of music publication on the Web through a device called "MIDI", and I have a link page or two of my favorites for you to cruise. Also, in commenting on an issue or interest of mine, I'll write some essays filled with links for you to read.
Go directly to the corners of my electronic world by using the navigation bar appearing at the top of this page, or jump down below this section to find out what I've added this week. I'll also be experimenting with time, allowing you to scroll through previous weeks' versions of my pages where appropriate.
This week's comic review
It gives me great pleasure to finally get the chance to recommend this comic. It's a little bit different than most of the others I read, a colorful serial in 3-panel daily format. It's a mixture of eye-candy (a hip homage to 1950's design and science-fiction, so slick looking that I avoided it for a while thinking it to be a scam of some type) and some pretty clever story lines. An energetic cowboy outfit-wearin' kid is zapped to an alien planet where everything is patterned after meticulously studied drive-in movies, because the hipster Diz and floating, glass-bowl-covered "Sponge" have a premonition that he is a "true hero". So far he has helped them solve two mysteries of their odd and thematic world ("The Screaming Stones" and "Howling Mountain"), and now faces simultaneous dangers in the new "The Whispering Well". Although built on a solid kitch foundation, the stories turn out to be anything but cliche, touched with meloncholy and requiring unusual thinking on the part of the Kid, but never straying out of "G" rating territory.
Well, back to not much to say after my big post last week. Maybe I'll clean up some bad links. Read more webcomics!
