Serious Business

"Mini Comix"... Know anything about those? I didn't until a few years ago, when I got a close-to-900-page anthology of the things (this one). Small press stuff (which is always fun to investigate), on a TINY scale. Cheap, too (mostly). Got a couple of issues of one such article in the post a couple of weeks ago, No Funnies by Jason Walter (of Augusta, Georgia stock). He also emailed them to me as well, which is just as well - getting good scans of these wouldn't be any fun at all (how apt!):



The actual size of the thing is one sheet of A4, folded in half three times then stapled (so about 4.5" x 2.8")... I'm wittering about the size a lot here, it's all about what you do with it (or so I'm told) - plenty to behold within!

The contents are odd, intelligent and fast-moving - witness the career of the Pubescent Godlike Ninja Ducks:


The Hellish literary analysis of 2 Dawgs In Hades Discuss James Joyce:


The heroic adventures of The Amazing Cat Hand:


And the ongoing obsession with space whales:



No Funnies - they're fun, cheerful and cheap. Find Jason on Facebook and for $1.98 he'll send you two issues in an envelope (that's in American money, same price for anywhere in the world). It's this "anyone can do it" thing that I love and it makes me hate myself for not doing it too, instead of just reading and writing about them (although that's enough fun in itself as well). I've got a few Biro pens and a pack of paper and plenty of free time, why not?


Repeat procrastination until the End Times...

  1. Wish I could add something interesting or insightful about them, but I've never heard of them before. (Just wanted you to know that I do actually check out your blog.)

    1. I know you do, Kid - no worries there. I'd recommend that 900-page book to you, but it's probably (definitely!) not your sort of thing.

  3. Forex trading websites, blogs, and forums create a lot of hype by focusing mainly on the positive aspects of Forex trading. Not many brokers speak about failures.  contabilidade macae

You may have arrived in Canada with several years of hands-on experience and internationally-recognized professional qualifications. But after your first job interview, you probably realize that Canadian experience and international credentials are the stumbling blocks you'd have to overcome to find employment in IT. After sending out dozens of resumes, browsing job websites over and over, and going to a series of interviews, you may find the world becoming pretty depressing. But there is help. The following steps, gathered from experience, will help you to overcome the obstacles, and find the IT job you're looking for in Canada. human resource consulting ottawa
