passion haiku

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

I’m not sure if I’ve ever told you all how much I adore it when you reply in haiku form but I’m telling you now. It’s really fun for me to read the responses and see people getting into the spirit of things. If you aren’t sure how, haiku is easy. The general rule is 3 lines: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables respectively, no rhyming necessary. Your regular comments are of course delightful too, but if you feel inclined to haiku..please do. 😛

So tomorrow, I have my guest strip up at Ben Stirling’s Patrick Grey Online.  This is the full deal where I had to write my own script and do the artwork.  Again, it was harder than I expected, but I think I did okay…sorta.  Anyways, do check it out and while your there, nestle in and go through a year’s worth of fabulous archives.  It’s a story based comic, humorous, sarcastic, sweet.  I read it religiously myself, so it was an honor to be asked to do this.

In other comic news, one of my favorite comics has been under a bit of attack.  I happen to love Marbles. I think it’s clever and witty and raises awareness through humor, but I guess not everyone agrees.  I had turned a friend (hi Gabe!) on to it some time ago and mentioned some of the crits that I’ve been hearing lately and he wrote a great blog article about it.  I like to keep things on my dark little website rather light, so I’m not encouraging a debate, but merely mentioning a comic that some find controversial in case you want to give it a read and judge for yourselves.

That’s it for now. Remember Valentine’s and Anti-Valentines goodies are available in the GingerDead etsy store. Order now to get you’re stuff on time.

See you next week with the start of romantic little story arc! Thanks for reading.

    to tear it apart

    to squish with bare hands

    A haiku is great
    But your comics are better
    A ten plus for rate!

    Boogie woogie wu
    boogie woogie woogie wu
    i cant write haikus… 🙁

    (neither can I take that cursed song from Insane Clown Posse off my mind, apparently…. if only Lenoir could poke through my head… still a good song though. Ow. Head hurts. Stream of conciousnes. Must sleep. Hey wait!)

    My head kinda hurts
    typing stream of conciousness
    I must sleep, hey wait!

    First-time visitor
    What a way to start me off
    I’ll be coming back

  12. calan Says:

    hi new visitor
    may i give you a cookie?
    careful, it bites back.


  13. justme Says:

    Ooh, a cookie? yum
    Wait, carnivorous cookie?
    Maybe not so good…

    Maybe it depends-
    Gingerdead or Vendetta?
    Scary either way.

    Or maybe you were
    speaking metaphorically-
    in which case, um, thanks?

  14. Stinkoman87 Says:

    In my own opinion
    Haikus are for big sissys
    Oh wait- God dammit!


  15. justme Says:

    Just like Gingerdead
    Stinkoman Eighty-Seven,
    you’re a girly-man


    Speaking in Haiku
    five syllables, seven, five,
    doesn’t make it art;

    to find irony
    in so few syllables, though,
    takes talent. Bravo.

    gatherings around the tv
    super bowl sunday

    fortunate am i
    to have such clever readers
    amuse me with words

  17. Marita Says:

    Once they said to me
    Happy Valentin….Dear God!
    Is that an organ?
