This new animation thing on Facebook could be bad news for me. I’m going to be dreaming up stuff like this to do instead of real work.
I will be at FLUKE this Saturday with all the coolest folks you could possibly imagine (click here and see their names). Ok, most of them. We will just say it is a gathering of a large majority of the coolest folks in existence. So if you are cool, then you will be there. If you are beasty then you will also be there. We are also letting in totally rad folks and a couple awesome dudes and dudettes. At least one neat person will be there along with a few amazing creators and a couple of ladies that are jiggy with it. Don’t even get me started about the attendees that are coming from miles around to gape at the glorious goodies that will abound in mounds atop the tables within the 40 Watt Club.
Yes, FLUKE is at the 40 Watt which is itself a fantastic place made for fun. I do not believe there will be any YOLOing aloud this year. But I’ve not seen any official documentation to support that so you may be able to if no one is looking.
So come hang out with us. Bring yourself and money and your friend who also has money. They will be serving alcoholic beverages so there may be a few people who are crunk before the end of the show, just lets hope none of them are alcoholic, we will be giving flyers about substance abuse and how to treat it and where like the South Florida Detox. But we don’t let them crush our good time vibe or anything.

You Will Enjoy
I remember the first time I went to FLUKE, I died right on the spot. Thankfully they had a resurrection machine on hand because Bizarro Wuxtry was a sponsor and they have everything. You should try and stop by there while you are in town. You will not be disappointed, I assure you. I am not kidding in the least. You will be a better person after you walk the rooms filled with relics that will sooth your beasty soul within. It’s cathartic or something.
Speaking of replenishing the soul, FLUKE is a great place to meet new people and future friends. Many long lasting buddies have met on the floor of FLUKE. Not lying down drunk on the floor but walking the floor. Communing in comics and regaling in shared commonalities are great ways to build bonds that will hold stronger than any man made substance. The ethereal kinship that can form around stacks of stapled paper are unlike any others. It’s true and when you come to FLUKE you will see. You will enjoy.
I’m happy to announce that I will be returning to SPX after a few years of not being there. My journey and arangements are thanks to grants from the Ullman Foundation, the Daughhetee Cooperative and some help from AdHouse Books. I will be tooling around in grand ole Bethesda Maryland this weekend, September 13th and 14th. I will be seated with fellow Wide Awake Press pals Rob Ullman and Jared Cullum at booth number C3. Stop by and say hello!
