The Triumph of Management

Dividing my time on this blog, as I do, between generaly ruminations on politics, life, and cartoons, I figure I should bounce from my morning meditation on Joe Biden to a thought about yesterday’s time consuming video. That thought is: 9 views after 24 hours! Yes. It will probably be a while before I try yesterday’s experiment again…

Anyway, I’ve posted the finished cartoon to celebrate the site now reaching 4 months old. Happy birthday us!

The numbers so far:

176 posts (1.4 a day) containing 113,187 words. That’s a thousand words longer than The Golden Compass, volume one of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy.

There are now 234 comments comprising 32,478 words (18,323 by me, 14,155 by others).

1 video blog for a total of 9 views!

I have no idea how many cartoons I’ve draw or podcasts I’ve edited.

The positives: the last month of work has generated $6 in coffee, for which I’m always grateful. Thank you!

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.
