Comics, Freud, and Cyclops

I’m working on an autobiographical comic book right now while I still have the luxury of only one job. Like my books and screenplays and short stories, I don’t have a clear story to keep everything intact. All things I create, including this blog, are “bursts of creativity” (Burrell) that express my current mindset instead of describing it in a linear story. I like it better that way. Short and simple and I can articulate my angst by demonstration, however inaccessible. There’s got to be a market for that in this attention deficient nation.

The story’s about love, like all my other stuff. It’s dynamic, moving, moving, moving, like all my other stuff. And, it’s sexually explicit, like all my other stuff. I don’t know if society has made me so sexually amoral or if my brain isn’t progressive enough to think past my own enormous hog.* Maybe it’s a combination of both. Either way, Freud deserves a high five.

I only mention the comic book because if you see me commenting around the blogosphere, “liking” your Facebook status, or writing an irrelevant three-paragraph post about my deviant thoughts, I’ve wrestled my imagination to a standstill (that’s not a masturbatory reference, you dirty beast), and I’m avoiding looking at my flaccid artistry directly in its cyclopic eye (masturbatory reference). So, don’t encourage me!

*Did you click on the link? Perv. But seriously, I get that.

You got me SO bad, Carlos. And you know what? I liked it. Now, let me just find that page in the Standard Edition... (Of COURSE I clicked on the link! But since all my friends think I'm a prude I insist that you keep it a secret.)

I hope you have lots of inspirational dreams about going up staircases... ;o)

Collette said...

Besides, now I can tell everyone that I know the biggest dickhead in the! Now we just have to have someone dress up like a giant vag! lol. Or you could rent them out to health classes...Yes, I am disturbed also.

Julie, I'm totally thrilled that I got you, but don't worry, your secret is safe in my bounding heart.

Chrissy, I've got an amoral link for you:

Collette, maybe next year I can just pair up with Gov. Rick Perry?

Thank you, JennAventures. It's nice to hear someone besides myself say that.

Heather, I feel violated.

"I can articulate my angst by demonstration"...

I do this. Quite often. Usually while driving.

Not THAT. Perv.

(Have you noticed that all your comments are from women? I wonder what Freud would say about that?)

good luck with all this. I did not click on the link because I am at work and let's just say, you just never know being it is on your amoral blog ;-)
