Missing a day…

Affected by pollen yesterday, my sinuses flared. I blame lockdown. The upshot was that I didn’t do a thing. Couldn’t write jokes. Didn’t feel funny. No mood to draw. Just felt lousy. I eventually went to bed and watched two films. I’m a fan of Community and especially Ken Jeong, so I thought I’d see what The Hangover was all about. First film was okay. Second not as good. Can’t I say I found either particularly funny. Jeong’s performances were also ropey, to say the least. He’s so good in Community, it’s surprising to see how poor he was at the start of his career.

Felt better today and wrote a long thing that isn’t ready to publish. I don’t like rushing pieces when I’m arguing around difficult topics. Maybe tomorrow. Might draw. Might relax some more. Feels like I’ve got a mild cold.

Why Dunciad.com?

It’s a cool domain name and it was available. Yes, I know. Available. Crazy, isn’t it?


Yes. It also helps that it’s also my favourite satire written by Alexander Pope, one of the most metrically pure English poets who also knew his way around a crude insult or two. If you’ve not read it, you should give it a try.

So this is satire, right?

Can’t deny it. There will be some. But it’s also an experiment in writing and drawing, giving work away for free in order to see how many people are willing to support a writer doing his thing. It’s the weird stuff that I wouldn’t get published elsewhere in this word of diminishing demands and cookie-cutter tastes.
