What Murphy said Reanimator.
I could only upload up to 10 images so the last 4 panels are scrunched together.
Oh and if you want to see it in one long panel, you can just go to my main blog post.
We have been asked for pictures of Panther in facepaint, and we are happy to oblige. Plus a bonus one for fun. For those wondering, a painted Panther usually means that he’s lost his voice and is unable to sing, in which case Turbo Lover takes over lead vocals.
It’s a story about how I got to realize that I am aromantic - so basically it’s a self-discovery story. That might sound kind of boring… it’s nothing exquisite. But I started doodling it, and before I knew it, I was finished! This is kind of a big deal. I hardly ever finish anything.
I don’t care if you share this or use the images. Giving me credit would be nice, but it’s more important that you please remember the main message. C:
Criticism is always welcome, as long as you’re polite and constructive.
This is really, really wonderful, and I don’t know how I missed it when it was first posted. I have such a hard time understanding aromanticism or asexuality - not that I don’t know what they mean, but I just can’t imagine feeling either way. Like I can’t imagine being straight or liking football. It’s also that I am SO romantic and SO sexual that it seems almost… alien. Chekhov did a fantastic job explaining something that occasionally perplexes me, and I truly love it. I love comics that teach me!
Check it out!
This is awesome! I was pretty sure I was asexual for some time, and I realized that asexuality and aromance is not only almost unknown (mostly because, as Kate mentioned, most people can’t imagine not being romantic or sexual in some way), but there are people who will fight you tooth and nail when you mention you are not interested in these things! Being told you CAN’T be what you are makes it all the harder to feel different.
I turned out to be a really late sexual bloomer - I didn’t have a sexual thought about another person until my sophomore year of college. I didn’t even think about sex enough to question not being sexual until a year before that! But I am glad I learned about asexuality/romance in the interim.
New (Tiny) Comic Day! I’ve been working out and it’s not… working out. (haw!)

FUCK. YES. Now if only I had money.
The other big bit of news from the latest mailer is, in short, that three of the Powerglove shows will no longer have the Protomen… but two BIG new shows have been added. The first is at Bamboozle Festival in New Jersey, on May 19th. And the second is in Vancouver on May 27th with fucking Tenacious D. So here’s the current list of announced upcoming shows:
04th – Nashville, TN – Brick Factory —- 18+ (Cancer Dancer Party) *DJ SETS ONLY*
18th - Worcester, MA - The Palladium —- ALL AGES
19th - Asbury Park, NJ - Bamboozle Festival —— ALL AGES
20th - West Chester, PA - The Note —- ALL AGES
22nd - Montreal, QC - Katacombes —- 18+
23rd - Toronto, ON - The Hoxton —- 19+
24th - Buffalo, NY - Mohawk Place (Tickets On Sale Soon) —- ALL AGES
27th - Vancouver, BC - PNE Ampitheatre (with Tenacious D)
REALLY wish I could make the Worcester show! It’s so rare they’re in New England.
Toronto becomes first city to mandate green roofs
Toronto is the first city in North America with a bylaw that requires roofs to be green. And we’re not talking about paint. A green roof, also known as a living roof, uses various hardy plants to create a barrier between the sun’s rays and the tiles or shingles of the roof. The plants love the sun, and the building (and its inhabitants) enjoy more comfortable indoor temperatures as a result.
Toronto’s new legislation will require all residential, commercial and institutional buildings over 2,000 square meters to have between 20 and 60 percent living roofs. Although it’s been in place since early 2010, the bylaw will apply to new industrial development as of April 30, 2012. While this is the first city-wide mandate involving green roofs, Toronto’s decision follow’s in the footsteps of other cities, like Chicago and New York.
Under the direction of Mayor Richard Daley the city of Chicago put a 38,800 square foot green roof on a 12 story skyscraper in 2000. Twelve years later, that building now saves $5000 annually on utility bills, and Chicago boasts 7 million square feet of green roof space. New York has followed suit, and since planting a green roof on the Con Edison Learning Centre in Queens, the buildings managers have seen a 34 percent reduction of heat loss in winter, and reduced summer heat gain by 84 percent.
But lower utility bills aren’t the only benefit of planting a living roof. In addition to cooling down the city, green roofs create cleaner air, cleaner water, and provide a peaceful oasis for people, birds and insects in an otherwise polluted, concrete and asphalt-covered environment.
