This week's comic review
Nukees has been published on the web for a long time. I've had some issues with it (King Lucia), but it won me over with it's recent Gav gets an afterlife story, so here it is. Published out of Berkely, with lots of local in-jokes, it's main character based on the author started off as a perpetual student, now is described more often as a mad scientist. He and his friends in the same department build improbable nuclear powered devices and basically live the physics/engineering college wet dream. It's all a little too thickly laid on for me, but despite the fantasy setting the characters have a lot of hidden depth. The character of "Suzy Gee", at first a triumph of drawing, has now become a very interesting and sympathetic bridge to the real world. Other characters, although less complex, are still pretty likeable. Nukees has evolved nicely over the years and I now check it frequently.
Not much to say this week. I had an interesting plate of shrimp experience a couple of weeks ago. I was watching a rerun of a David Letterman show and saw this guy Nick Cave sing a song. Man, it blew me away! I somehow managed to remember his name long enough to look up all of Nick's info on the web. But the cool thing was that over the next couple of days I ran into several reference to this rising star, and somebody even spontaneously said the name of the song("Love Letter") to me. Anyhow, if anybody still has a tape of that Letterman (it was the one where the woman from Survivor was interviewed, and they mentioned the "chicken" incident), I'd love to see it again!
About my pages
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 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 "MIDI", and I'm also wild about Webcomics.
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 that to find out what I've added this week. I'll also someday be experimenting with time, allowing you to scroll through previous weeks' versions of my pages where appropriate.
