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.

Magma Studio is a fun little web app. If you've got a browser, you've got a drawing app! Mostly. If you're using MacOS Safari, you get no tablet support. If you're using iOS Safari, you do get tablet support but no paste function. Both make me chuckle a bit. But overall, it's fun to play with. Sure, it could use some more functions in there, but I think it's a solid base app to build on. And you have draw with 30 friends at the same time! Big time art jam! Reminds me of the old oekaki days in the 90s.

So check it out. This is not sponsored, but I had fun with it and I think you will, too!
