Saludos a 86 Países Hello to 86 Countries

Incredible that there are 86 countries in the world with people wasting as much time on the internet as to find my comics! Probably 60% of them are only one hit per country, mind you, but it’s still impressive to think about. Thanks for stopping by everyone! Share with your friends, love each other, and don’t tolerate nonsense in the private or the public!

Myself my goal for 2018 is to go back to 2008 internet usage, which is next to none. Hit me here or at negrocomics@gmail.com. Love you! Here’s one from FK Waechter:ImageHandler.ashx

Street Avocados in San José

This late in December, finally the avocado tree at our building is ready to glean. There’s a whole lot of fruit on it. Today my neighbor invited me to borrow his gancho and I took just this much, trying to take from the highest reaches so he could get the easier stuff. As you can see in the photo at left, some even matured on the tree.

After a mellow but bastard-long summer, and what looks to be another bleak winter, my faith in San José is restored when a distant good winter gives us this many avocados. My landlord is barely aware of the tree and will get nothing from it as he grasps after the paperwork simulacrum of his genocidal private property, where we can now choose to feed ourselves on it or give it away to those who need it more than we do. I sure as shit won’t be letting any millennials make toast out of them!

There’s got to be like $1000 in market-value fruit on it if we could safely get at all of it. No narco conflict, no gasoline, no exploited labor, no dipshit agribusiness, no [further] deforestation, no sprays or chemicals of any kind, no Whole Foods, and no fucking organic certification!

Si se me acaba el dinerohh oohhhhhh … ¡les pagoohhhh con aguacate eeees!!

Trump: Meat Ladder to Mars Novel to Become Nonfiction Right On Time

MeatLadderCoverKINDLE

It appears that the 2016 Eugenio Negro novel “Meat Ladder to Mars” will indeed become nonfiction, at least most of it, thanks to President Trump, who “plans” to “direct” NASA to send North American astronauts to the moon and to Mars, presumably as soon as possible. And who will work these launch jobs? We’d better read the book.

“Meat Ladder to Mars” is on sale at Bell’s in Palo Alto, Spectator in Oakland, Borderlands and Dog-Eared Books in San Francisco.

Mercury Mourns Napa Winery Profits

As enormous swathes of smoke reached the south bay, this week the Mercury News published an outcry over Napa wineries’ profits getting burnt in this latest rash of catastrophic Northern Californian fires.

It took days before they mentioned the hundreds of working families and retirees who lost everything in places like Santa Rosa, and has not countenanced the plight of the unrecognized and undocumented workers who make the whole Napa economy move. Above is a digest of what is now a series of articles by Mary Orlin, George Avalos, Paul Rogers, et al.

Roadbeers: Coronita

Found this guaife-proof Coronita, seven lousy ounces, once again tossed in the recycling in a pack of empties. Froze solid on top in the freezer. Approaching the mid-20s of how many road beers I’ve found since I started looking!

Jon Taplin on the Libertarian Internet

Here’s an excellent talk by Jon Taplin of the Annenberg School of Communication at USC and father of Post-Consumer‘s Nick Taplin, on the problems of libertarian dumbshits who control the internet and also US politics. Remember kids, libertarians and neonazis are the SAME PEOPLE, Google CEO or not.

As a fairly true anarchist artist who is always about community, dialogue and exposure before “copyright,” I nevertheless appreciate Taplin’s warning that “the technological revolution is coming for all of your jobs.” Does that make me double down on copyright? Fuck no! It makes me double down on 1.) reduction of reliance on capitalism’s rules for survival and 2.) increase of sharing all things so that they don’t end up falling apart when whatever thing comes for whatever of all our things. Enjoy the video!

All Representatives Paid Off by the NRA, on Las Vegas

Not that any of you care, but here is a list of representatives of YOUR congress, arranged according to how they had some very nice thing to say about the victims of a mass shooting last night in Las Vegas, in which at least 50 people were killed by one small-dicked white man with infinite access to weapons of war. Just as YOU do!

Remember, illiterate Millennials, that shit comes from somewhere in this world. Although you don’t believe it, soon all of you Millennials will also be 60, many of you small-dicked white men, just as illiterate as the Baby Boomers or whomever else you blame for your present problems, and you will have to choose which part of history to maintain. How many of you will be mass shooters? With the access to guns that the NRA guarantees, likely it will be many of you.
