Back in October 2003, “Tastes Like Chicken” ran a cover story called “IT’S A ‘MASK’ MASK!” The cover featured an illustration of a Rocky Dennis Halloween mask as drawn by Staff Member #716. You can check out the cover here.

A couple days ago I received this email from an old “TLC” reader:

I wanted to share this: I got the Rocky Dennis Halloween mask tattooed on my calf last night. Thanks for the inspiration!

Yesterday, he sent me a link to this video:

Rocky McCahan, you’re my inspiration.

My good friend Frank Cvetkovic (who also has been known as Boom Boom Storm Cloud from time to time) just got ashcan previews of his upcoming graphic novel “Punch-Up” printed, and he sent me a freebie to check out.

Written by Frank and illustrated by David Brame, “Punch-Up” offers both a unique storyline and fantastic artwork. I don’t want to give too much away, but the short of the story is this: Patrick is a recently dumped, recently fired twenty-something who pays his bills by letting people beat the shit out of him.

There’s more to it than that, but you’ve gotta admit that it already sounds pretty goddamn intriguing.

Here’s the cover of the new forty-page ashcan, which I’m sure you could finagle a copy of if you threw a few bucks at Frank.

"Punch-Up" ashcan

In the meantime, check out this eight-page preview over on his site.

Frank’s gonna be shopping this around to publishers in the near future, looking to get it picked up as a original graphic novel. If the rest of the story is anything like the ashcan, he shouldn’t have any problem.

Mike Tyson ain’t got shit on this,

…I heard the song “This Sentence Will Ruin/Save Your Life” by the Toronto-based band Born Ruffians. I instantly fell in love with the song, and sought out the six-track EP that it came from.

Here’s the song:

I just got an email about a new Born Ruffians clip, this one of lead singer Luke LaLonde doing a live performance/cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” at Souz Dal in Toronto.

Check that out here:

Also, I don’t think the book is listed on Amazon.com yet, but I just got the ISBN number which you can use to pre-order a copy from your local bookstore.

The ISBN number is: 978-1-60706-123-6

If you have any problems ordering one, just let me know and I’ll do my best to help you out.

Still ain’t no Seuss,
