Go, baby, go, yeah we’re right behind you

Diiiiiiggg. So much dig. 

Sir Sly - Where I’m Going

"I was born in the crowd, floating around
With nothing to hold to
Soaked in the sound, deep underground
Just like I told you
Climbing the rose, back to the top
Look out the skylight
Finding the one all of a sudden

That’s what I want
That’s what I need
That’s where I’m going
That’s who I wanna be
And all of my love was wasted on you
That’s how it happens
That’s what I wanna do”

SO into this new one by How to Dress Well. Really really looking forward to the new album like crazy. It’s going to be a little sexy.

Repeat Pleasure - How to Dress Well

The Faders - Better Off Dead

This is one of my FAVOURITE running songs. These guys were kind of one hit wonders known for “No Sleep Tonight” but I love this track so much more. Mmm angry break-up songs. 

My favourite track on the “After the Disco” album made a very appropriate appearance on last week’s Elementary episode which reminded me that it existed and that I loved it. Gives me the emotion waves. 

"oh, the distant light
that’s the hardest part to take,
that’s the heart of all my pain,
lying in the cold,
oh, the distant light,
in a hue we can’t describe”

Leave it Alone - Broken Bells

eA glorified doodle (thanks, photoshop!) of my favorite flightless bird (unfortunately extinct), the Stephens Island wren. I used prior illustrations as references and tried to do some interesting poses based on what I know about other birds.These guys were discovered when the lighthouse keeper’s cat brought him one on tiny Stephens Island in New Zealand. Unfortunately, due to the introduced feral cats and probably the price that specimens of this little guy fetched, the species was extinct within a year.One of the infinite reasons extinction is so painful is that we can never know for sure anything about the extinct animal’s behavior. Did they engage in mating displays? Did they scratch itches above or below the wing? What was their posture when they ran? What did their songs sound like, if they indeed sang at all? All we can do is speculate, based on what we know about similar creatures.Behavior is basically my favorite thing about animals… it’s a pity these little guys are gone.

Um, @klancashire?

I’m getting VERY into wrens. Love these!

Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Here is part three of my sketch comic Ducks, with maybe one more part to go.  
For parts one and two, and more info, go: here.

Kate Beaton’s comics about her time working at Fort Mac in Alberta are straight up, brilliant. Heartbreaking, surreal and so familiar to a lot of Canadians whether you’ve worked there or known somebody who’s worked there.

Simutanously the most and least personal thing I have on the web.
