For those of you who’ve never had a urinary tract infection, it basically feels like you are constantly filled with piss and have the urge to go every five minutes. The problem is though, is that whenever you do try to empty yourself— only a couple of insignificant drops come out.
My creative mind exhibits the same symptoms of a UTI: always filled to the brim with stuff, but when it’s time to unload onto a medium like paper or a painting— only small bits come out. This problem is no longer as hilarious as it used to be, mostly because I have a table at the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts Mini Comic-Con this May, and have not made a single thing for it.

On the night of Jack Nicholson’s birthday, Hunter S. Thompson appeared outside of Nicholson’s home, having set off a high-powered spotlight and gunfire, playing a tape of animal cries through an amplifier to awaken him. He then left a freshly-cut elk’s heart on his door as a joke before leaving when it appeared that nobody would exit the house. 1
This was Thompson’s birthday gift to Nicholson— also known as the best birthday gift EVER.
