Number12's Web Comics Picks
When I Am King

This week's comic review

This comic is Weird with a capital W. I'm not the only one who thinks so; it's been getting a lot of press recently. I'm a trend whore! Anyhow, this is a comic where the King and his countrymen are drawn from geometric shapes so the people resemble curved-cornered refridgerators with heads, the King's sarong gets eaten by a camel pretty early in the series, and he spends most of the strip running around naked, trying to find underwear and keep from getting his pecker stung by bees. All the while pursued by the camel, who wants oral sex. The author's bio indicates he's from Switzerland. Ah, its european.

Seeing Ringo

Hi all. So when am I going to get around to updating some of my other web pages like I should? Well, it won't be this week, I had to swear not to spend more than a few minutes on this so that I could make some work deadlines, even though a lot has happened this week that relates to my little book here. Like some big changes in the webcomics world. Shinku-tokimekisempukaku ended, after a few rocky weeks. It was a great comic, still bursting with potential, but the good news is Yamcha is retrofitting the archive with commentary. "Too Fat To Be A Rock Star" seems to have diappeared permanently, but Journey To The West is back with some backstory updates. And, Out Of Fika's archive has vanished yet again, don't say I didn't warn you.

But even better, I've been finding lots of good MIDIs recently since I decided that my network card could just not support streaming audio. Just a few tastes of what I hope to update my long neglected midi page with:

Joanna. Remember this sweet little song from the 80's by Kool and the Gang? I've been trying to find one on the web forever and it's great! Something about the video for this song endeared it to me, perhaps it was just the time in my life.

Fields of the Nephilim Midis? Incredible but true. They are on the uniformly humorous Goth Midi Index. What next, Steve Reich midis? *doom-filled evil laugh*

Band On The Run by Paul McCartney. A prime example of the top-knotch midis I've been finding, and my favorite at the moment.

Speaking of Paul, I saw my first and probably only Beatle last weekend. What an experience. Ringo makes The All-Starr Tour as much about every member of the group as about himself, so it was like seeing six bands in once concert. Ringo set the tone to a friendly, comfortable level, sort of like a famous uncle at the family picinic that the kids keep asking him to show them that trick he does. He played mostly really early songs from "that other band he was in" too, although he had to do The Submarine. Cora and I, of course, went to Howard Jones, who was his usual nurturing self. Roger Hodgson (from Supertramp) playing lead guitar fired off licks in the most casual way, as if lounging about the stage. Greg Lake still had virtuoso tone and played the classic ELP hits masterfully. Ian Hunter (Who? Mott the What-le? You've heard his music) on the other hand, just tore up all his songs, smashing them entertainingly with all the fury of a real rock-and-roller. Shelia E, in case you've never seen her, kicks everybody's ass; watching her performance inspires everybody to want to become a drummer, and it was also very entertaining to see her and Ringo playing side by side. Add to this a pleasant stop at the beach and it was a pretty good weekend.

Here is this week's nanofic:

Ice Balls

I am a ball of ice, in a crowd of other balls of ice, averting our gazes from each other. Once I experienced warmth. I became excited, heating up. I thought I might awaken others around me, but as I turned to steam I simply buffeted ineffectually against my neighbors, merely dampening their hard skin.

Tell me what you thought of this nanofic

That's all,


About my pages

My goal in adding this page to the WTS is to entertain my fellow toasters, and maybe even a small segment of the rest of the Web. I'll endeavor to add something new every week, so keep checking in, or look for any announcements about my pages in The Wunderland Weekly News.

My offerings fall into two categories: First, original works; artwork, music, photos, or writing that I'm collecting here for self-publication on a scale unimaginable a few years ago. Hopefully, the world's collective yawn won't totally blow me over, but I think you'll enjoy it if you've gotten this far. Second, Stuff I Found On The Web, brought back and held up to the light for your enjoyment. There's a whole underground world of music publication on the Web through "MIDI", and I'm also wild about Webcomics.

Go directly to the corners of my electronic world by using the navigation bar appearing at the top of this page, or jump down below that to find out what I've added this week. I'll also someday be experimenting with time, allowing you to scroll through previous weeks' versions of my pages where appropriate.
