A lot of semi-shit jobs, especially in post-industrial rural areas with service jobs like helping the elderly, require a pisstest, and 2-Strats isn’t standing for it. Sometimes inspiration comes from deeply-rooted sources and isn’t immediately apparent…
Luke-Ass shows up with some new, unexpected gear, sure that it’ll make the show better. But 2-Strats has the final say about the “liquor cabinet.”
At band practice, 2-Strats debuts his latest opus. Luke-Ass and Cornhouse aren’t going for it, and in his rage 2-Strats threatens to use force.
Another bong-hitter dated 5.05. This one got fucked with in the intervening years so it’s taped on the back of the upper left corner. Note the Aqua Teen Hunger Force reference in panel 2. I guess I’d recently learned that Crohn’s Disease is someone’s name and not a super-mean disease name for old scary women, or crones, as the fairy tales say, and felt the need to create contrast.
I recall one of my friends being very pleased with the idea of Doom Porn after I made it up, as doom metal was a hot button in those days. He’s like what, is the porn like “uuhhhhhggghh” and he moved his hips downward really slowly. I’m like, exactly.
This one is dated 5/2005. 2-Strats talks about going and getting a seesh (little seizure’s pizza) somewhere in Santa Cruz County, like the one on Ocean in the beach flats.
Evident is my awareness of the KKK’s control of central California as well as an example of my disgust with the indie rock scene I was a part of. The guy in the second and last panels represents one of 25,000 junkies playing the Aptos Club in any given year until it closed in 2006 or so, thereby making it hard for my friends’ bands to get gigs. And Misfits lyrics on top of all that. These were quite the comics!
2-Strats, Cornhouse and Luke-Ass not only get themselves shut down by the fuzz, but in the process get themselves dissed by the two smug cops as well. A disastrous house show all told. I will mail a poster to whomever can tell me in a comment what town this comic must take place in.
Dude I just found a serious vein down into Youtube. I knew about Malo …
… and of course don’t listen nearly as much as I need to, but this Youtube channel Magrosi65 has some stuff I didn’t even know about! Caldera!
And some stuff I already dug like Idris Muhammad. Have a funky one listening to all this! Give yourself over to chance!
