Flash and Balls
Posted November 27, 2018 at 03:04 am

Thing one, I know entirely too much KISStory. I got really in to KISS in college which weirdly coincided with their reunion tour. And the Psycho Circus tour. And I've probably said too much.

Thing two, I'M IN THE FRIGGIN' WASHINGTON POST MAGAZINE!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever dare think that some day I would be in my town's paper of record and holy fuck shit, THERE I ARE! Digital version went up yesterday and the print edition comes out this Sunday. I absolutely love the photos of all of us in our Super Art Fight regalia. Makes us look so pro! Can't wait to see a physical copy!

ALLY

I guess you get what you ask for. Generic descriptions, generic candidates.


KANE

?Wanted, guitarist with flash and balls.?


====

BODIE

What?


KANE

So. Legend has it that when Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were looking for a lead guitarist?


ALLY

Paul Stanley the painter?


====

KANE

What? Painter? Oh shit, he?s painting now! Anyway, so back when Gene and Paul were looking for a lead guitarist, they put out a classified ad in the Village Voice looking for a guitarist with ?flash and balls.?


====

KANE

Day of the auditions. They see a bunch of guitarists. None of them are really bringing it. Some of them have the flash, some of them have the balls, but no one has the right flash balls combo.


====

KANE

Gene and Paul are about to shut it down when this dude walks in and heads right for the amp. They?re about to throw him out because they?ve just had the shittiest day and are having none of it. He plugs in and starts wailing and Gene and Paul stop.


====

KANE

This is him! This is the guy they?ve been looking for! That dude is Ace Frehley and they go on to form KISS!


====

ALLY

You?re into KISS?


KANE

Gene Simmons spits blood and plays a literal axe for a bass! What?s not to like?


====

BODIE

So you?re saying that we should say that we ?make dope ass shit.?


KANE

Yeah! I mean, if we?re looking for our Ace we gotta be ourselves.


====

ALLY

I like it. But please, can we not with the ?balls?? Too dude broey.


KANE

And gross.

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!

I've spent a month with the iPad Pro and have some thoughts on what types of creators will find this to be a useful tool. This would have been a very different review without the reveal of iPadOS this past week.

Please take my thoughts with many, many, MANY grains of sand. I don't have other devices to compare the Pro to so it's not a very thorough review in my mind. But I try to answer the question, "What type of creator is the iPad Pro for?"
