I am sitting on my couch with a horrible lower back pain that has remained, well, horrible, for the past week and a half. On top of that I was sick most of last week as well. This morning as I contemplated the possibilities of needing to go see a chiropractor soon, I seen that it was Ian Mackaye of Minor Threat/Fugazi/the Evens/Dischord Records and a few other bands fame. He is 50. 50 years old. So coupled with my old man back that really just caught me off guard. Helped me feel a tiny bit old.
But it is also kinda awesome. The man has done a lot in those 50 years. Here’s wishing for 20 or so more! (c’mon, let’s be honest, who really wants to be doing anything at 100. Right?)
Anyways, this all led to me doing this as a warm up sketch this morning…
So go celebrate with some Fugazi (I suggest a song that might not be Waiting Room. Spread your wings, eh??)
Also, rather quickly, I want to suggest downloading the new digital comic “MarrowBones” by Eric Orchard. I read it last night and it’s great stuff. It’s a fun mixture cute and scary. It’s a fun read and available now, just go HERE!
