Next Town Over has been getting plugged fairly hard recently on and around I Don’t Know if You Know This, the comedy podcast my friend Mr. Fraioli does with his friend Mr. Pittman. If you’re the podcast-listening kind and a couple guys talking about adventures living longterm as foreigners in Japan sounds like your cup o’ tea give them a shot, but be warned: they’re not for folks with delicate sensibilities.

Another quick shoutout:  the recently-liberated Ray Barnholt has hung a shingle over at SCROLL and is putting out a new, boutique gaming/retrograming zine.  Worth looking into if you’re an appreciator of vidyagames.

And now the midweek reminiscence, not half as old as some of these but equally old hat if you’ve watched me on dA for any length of time:

Sort of a performer.
