Site Update

I am starting to get things ready for the debut of the new Watch This Space. It still won't happen for a couple more months I believe but I at least know what is going to be featured. What I want to do is get a backlog of everything before I hit publish on anything that way I can take my time on posts, knowing that the queue still has posts in it. So what's in store? Take a look...

A bi-weekly post of just random things. This section will focus mainly on pop culture but may also include ramblings about life and the world. This is the same Whiz Bang started earlier this year. The name comes from Fawcett Publications Capt. Billy's Whiz Bang which was a bawdy cartoon and joke magazine in the 1920s and 1930s.

A monthly post detailing comics of all shapes and sizes from comic strips, comic books and more both well-known and obscure. If you would like to help with this section, please consider donating something from my wishlist or submitting your own post.

A monthly Story Series starring a police officer on the planet Mosaic, a planet where intergalactic species that are endangered are housed and protected. Ganthent is tasked with helping his new human neighbors feel at home while also trying to solve a slew of murders and an ever-growing feeling that his captain is hiding something.

A post of all things Kansas--history, pictures, and facts. I understand that this may only be interesting to a small group of people but I will strive to make the posts geared toward all readers. These will be posted on Sundays when they do post so you will be able to ignore them if you want.

A monthly anthology Story Series featuring three short stories. The series will start out with Ad Astra, a superhero with a star rod that grants him flight and invincibility; Lady Silk, a hero who takes on the crime in her city after her husband is murdered; The Lasso, a western hero who uses his fantastic lasso ability to stop crime in the Old West. You may recognize the Adventure logo from the pulp magazine of the same name as published by the founder of DC Comics, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson.

Off-site titles will be Liberty, the monthly anthology Story Series featuring one story per month, and The Point of Beginning, which features just random things I like and see. If you would like to contribute, I am looking for people to contribute their own weekly, bi-weekly or monthly series. I am looking for unique text posts, stories and webcomics. If you're interested, email me at tauycreek [at] gmail dot com.

But Which One Influenced Which?

So now Brutus is either going to take Kewpie to an animal shelter or Kewpie is going to run away and join a better family.

You're the One Watching Me Read the Crossword Answers

Back in middle school, I was in home room reading. I can't remember what I was reading. It was either Adam of the Road or Time Cat but I know it was one of my favorite books at the time. I was sitting across from this girl and she kept staring at me while I was reading. I finally looked up from my book and asked, "What?" She looked at me and responded, "Nothing. You're just weird."

I can't even remember what my response to that was. I think at most I shrugged and said "Okay," and went back to reading. What are you supposed to say to that? I could've asked why I was weird because I was just reading or made it seem being weird was kind of cool by going "And?" but I just went back to reading, which is probably the best choice in this scenario. Anyway, what I'm getting at with this is that...
...that girl grew up to be Gladys. Gladys even has the same hair style that the girl did back then. Luckily, it seems as if Brutus has figured out a way to tune her out.

No Bubbles in the Watercooler This Time

Wait. Are you saying that a person who inherited his money and company from his father and who never really had to work his entire life feels entitled? That doesn't sound right...

Does Brutus' Neck Look Fatter Today?

I understand why Brutus is depressed this morning and it's not because of work. It's because my comic commentary is coming to an end on Friday.

I know I've said that a lot but trying to keep something going that hasn't filled anyone with joy since 2011 is just a sign of insanity. I hope to have something new up as soon as possible but in the meantime, there is still The Point of Beginning.

And No, I'm Not Going to Mention the Physically Impossible Way That the Tennis Ball Bounced Off Brutus' Head and Around the Door

When I read this last night I actually chuckled at it but upon looking at it again this afternoon I have to say something about this. Notice that the door opens into Veeblefester's office. That's all well and good, I have to problem with that. It's the placement of Veeblefester's name on the door that bothers me. Either Veeblefester had "The Office of R.W. Veeblefester" etched into both sides of the door (thereby notifying people they are entering his office and, as they leave, reminding them that money talks and Veeblefester has all the money) or Brutus is actually leaving Veeblefester's office and meeting Veeblefester in the hallway.
