The Purple Pinup Guru Platform

When purple things are pulsating on your mind, I'm the one whose clock you want to clean. Aiding is Sparky, the Astral Plane Zen Pup Dog from his mountain stronghold on the Northernmost Island of the Happy Ninja Island chain, this blog will also act as a journal to my wacky antics at an entertainment company and the progress of my self published comic book, The Deposit Man which only appears when I damn well feel like it. Real Soon Now.

The dangblasted MTA strike is still ongoing and continues to put a halt to my normal procession of life. No sneaks onto the studio lot to catch up with what's going on with Constantine. More strange invoices have been coming via my desk - surprisingly, some deal with that fake ambulance prop I saw park out front - for doll and window panels. Furnishings for an apartment have been creeping in for the character Angela , which I believe is being portrayed by Rachel Weisz. Studio rental invoices state that each of the five stages have four months of rental left until the end of principle photography.

I'm being berated by some of my co-workers because I haven't seen Kill Bill Volume 1 yet, but not just due to my lack of transportation - it's also my lack of cash to spare due to the plunking down of a couple of grand I put into the production of the latest Deposit Man book. I'm behind on a lot of my favorite media outlets including my prog CD spending sprees, DVD rentals and purchases, and I haven't seen any new movies in almost a month. Although, I did put the new Matrix Reloaded on my credit card and I plan on the same with the new Batman Animated movie: The Mystery of The Batwoman - both essentials to my lifeblood.
I haven't even been keeping up with what's going on in the industry that I want so much to be a part of- largely the comic book publishing business. So much stuff to catch up on. Good thing network television is free otherwise, my life would be in a total shambles without my cop and sci-fi shows.

Well, I'll be headed to Vegas a week from today to premiere the new Deposit Man book at the Las Vegas Comic Con and so far everyone on my father's side of the family seems to be impressed so far- they haven't actually held the product in their hands yet- but my brother Matt is certainly estatic that the merest mention of the book made it as a headline on the news page of the Con's website. He e-mailed to tell me that he alerted all his friends in that no good looking piece of ass land Nebraska -where everyone is dull as watching a cornstalk grow. I sure he comes to his senses one day and moves someplace where a decent percentage of civilization exists. We'll all probably go out to celebrate out to eat somewhere and have to a chance to get a real meal in my stomach ever since this saving up money fiasco started. Also, I'll be having a face to face second encounter with my niece, Laura- and that will be fun. It's real trip out that I'm now old enough to be somebody's uncle.

The MTA mechanic's strike is now a week old and there's no end in sight.

They can go fuck themselves in their empty crow pecked out eyesockets for all I care. Same thing with the Ralph's and Von's employees who think they have the wool pulled over my our eyes- gee, I think we can all do without perserved food and chemically treated frozen dinners for a month or so - not when you got real grocery stores that sells chemically untreated food and fresh fare without the pesticides like Whole Foods Market or Trader Joe's. So it's a little expensive- if you really want the crappy added fat and vegatable shortening, there's Gelson's - but prepared to pay a preminium for the same horseshit.

The new Deposit Man book is now at the printer and it has a honorable mention on the Las Vegas Comic Con homepage . When I come back from Vegas- plan wills be underway to get the Deposit Man and the Last Great Gate of Mortality Act Two on track for a quicker release in Feb or Mar and then Act Three I don't expect until next summer's San Diego Comic Con with the first two being reprinted to be solicited in Diamond. I will probably be giving exclusive distribution to FM International or Cold Cut, since they treat independent creators with more respect than Geppi gung ho saturation of mainstream publisher products. I'm still on that kick, after so many years. I also want to sign up for a table for next year's APE- but my mantra has always been to work on one show at a time.

Once people become familiar with the new book- I will be going into length about how some of the ideas came to be- I know people are panting to know where I came up for the idea of Marty's perverted scrapbook or the drug store shootout.
