Comics A-Go-Go! Blog

If you’ve been around the Comics A-Go-Go! site before, you’ll know we pride ourselves on our superb talent for laziness. Whenever possible, we cut corners on our posts to ensure we have as little time dedicated to real research as possible. OK, that’s partially a lie (hey, we do that a hell of a lot on our site too). If it’s something that grabs our interest, we’ll actually waste a ton of time reading up on the topic (although that effort doesn’t usually translate into something profound for you, oh dear reader). Case in point is the previous post on Samaritans. We didn’t know if the Samaritan ethno-religion even existed anymore. When we discovered it did, we tried to find out what was new and interesting about their culture. Apparently not much. Samaritanism is almost a dead sect. And, go find reading material and images about Samaritan women. We wasted over an hour trying to get details on females that practice the religion. Pretty much nada other than the thing we found out about the Ukraianian brides.

Now, now. No reason to get angry. Just breathe and accept Fate. Let it go, man. Let it go. [Note: What the hell?! “…daily savings!” It’s supposed to say “Daylight savings!” Aw, phooey. We should probably change it. But it’ll take a few minutes. And we just don’t feel like it. Ah, the laziness sets in again, all snuggly-like. Mmmm.]
Jerry Falwell gives admonitionSooooo, anyway. We’re tired of writing and editing images all the time. We’ve had guest contributors before and we think it’s about time to solicit more. If any of you have any interest in providing content for a post, let us know by dropping a comment below. We don’t even care what it’s about so long as it isn’t completely immoral or useless.

We’ll post your contribution with credits (actual or anonymous depending on your preference) to you. We’d love for the post to be about comics, movies, music, or other pop culture items. We welcome news pieces. We don’t mind posting a rant or two. So, show us what you’ve got. And if we don’t like it, we’ll probably still post it with a disclaimer.

Time Magazine Gay Marriage Cover April 2013
Holy damn! Time magazine has jumped into the fray and has released variant covers of their April 8, 2013 issue on Gay Marriage. The folks at Image Comics should be impressed. Just wait until the Chromium Holographix Limited Edition cover with Alan Scott and Sam [what’s his last name anyway?] is released next month.

Exclusive! This is the extremely rare Time Magazine cover for April 8, 2013 that highlights gay marriage. Only one of these comics exist. Now, that’s rare.

We’ll start you off. Here’s an example from someone that commented a while ago.

Subject line: Glam Rock doesn’t suck. You do.

How can you say glam rock is no good. Glam rock ROCKS!!!!!!! Mott the Hoople New York Dolls Slade David Bowie Roxy Music and more more more!!!!!! [editorial comment: no mention of Gary Glitter]. These R bands that live 4ever!! You suck. You dont have good music taste’s.  Only people that [editorial comment: this is a PG-13 site, mostly, so we’re going to edit this phrase and just say that the commenter indicated we should do certain things to ourselves and our mothers that we are pretty sure are illegal and painful] dont like GLAM rock!!!!!

OK, so we clearly touched a nerve. Well, what can we say? We don’t like the whole glam rock scene. But we respect the desire of others to dress up like drag queens and spew gallons of bombastic music upon those that enjoy that sort of thing.

Anyway, you get the idea.

One thought on “Come one, come all! Contributors welcome!

  1. How about: I’ll write a piece for your site if you write one for mine? I can definitely come up with some sort of pop culture article, no problem. What’ll be hard is to decide what to draw. Give me a few weeks, and I’ll think of something.

    As far as my site: http://technology4democracy.com/ . ..the difficulty is that my subject field is a little more narrow. It would ideally have to be related to either technology or politics. Or about something else that at least hints at those two subjects. Are you up for the challenge?
