Hey Nerds!

It's Tuesday, it's a great week and there's no reason not to knock everything out of the park this week.

GOOD DEED OF THE DAY

Zoey's Angels is an amazing organization with a heartbreaking story and this Sunday they are hosting their 8th annual Family Fun Walk. An organization that centers around helping families deal with the horrific ordeal of having a baby stay in the hospital for a long battle after it's born and then pass. The family then has to deal with burying a little family member and also a ton of medical bills and Zoey's Angels helps with both. Obviously for many people this is an incredibly personal story and issue and is something that is absolutely devastating for families to go through and deal with, and to have an organization there to help support people is incredibly important. This is that opportunity to help this group raise funds to help families deal with this all year long. #NerdsUnite

ARCHER'S BACK

The new season of Archer debuted last weekend and it is freaking great! There is absolutely no way to complain about this show, they keep reinventing it and the cast every season these last few years and I think that's done a lot to keep it fresh. There's no getting around the reality that 10 seasons is a lot of anything and like most shows the old way of doing things can get stale so they've avoided that by changing stuff up as much as possible these last few seasons and I love it. This season it's become a science fiction show and the cast is in space and struggling to make it in a great big galaxy while also dealing with all the inappropriate relationships and issues this cast has always had. Overall it's a hilarious journey through some great adventures, check it out.

HIGHER PROGRAMMING

This overall brings me to what's next for FXX and FX in general after the Fox/Disney deal. So FXX and FX are more centered towards adults and adult programming and while overall it's easy to believe that Disney would greatly enjoy the prospect of having these added channels in their portfolio, it isn't clear if they have the stomach for it. Lewis CK famously chose FX over HBO for his comedy show a few years back because they gave him the exact deal he wanted, and Baskets with Zach Galifianakis is from a similar arrangement and while Baskets has worked out great the Lewis CK deal obviously became an issue down the road where while on hiatus he admitted sexual misconduct allegations against him were untrue and the network ended their relationship. While "family" television isn't exactly full of saints, at least their program content isn't in constant need of defense from various people and parties. Adult comedy takes risks and goes out on limbs to make comments about our society, and how long Disney is willing to let that limb linger is the interesting long term question for both FX and FXX.

KING'S HAWAIIAN

The sweet love affair with the bread that can't be put down continues, they wrote me back guys, they wrote me back. Stay tuned.

NOT THAT YOU ASKED

Jared Kushner just did the season premiere of Axiom on HBO, it's a big picture journalism show where they try and really find the important parts of stories that people aren't talking about including things like global threats and the friction we have globally with China. They aren't a "gotcha" media by any means, but they aren't going to do a fluff piece on anyone they are going to push back on things that are issues. They spent a lot of time on Palestine and they spent a lot of time on the inappropriate relationship between "friends" and money and honestly Kushner doesn't change any minds in the interview but it all could have gone a lot worse. The one thing I do have an issue with though is his response on the Russia meeting in Trump tower was "I get 250 emails a day" but important people get a lot of emails, and it's their job to handle the information coming in and making decisions, also it said "Russia" in the subject line, so that should have gotten some focus from someone running a campaign. I just really didn't like that answer at all.

I'm going to jump out and wish you guys a great Tuesday and remind everyone to be kind to each other and try a little harder to have a great day! I'm coming back Wednesday and we'll be bringing more good times your way.

Hey Nerds!

It's Wednesday, I've been sick and I have great news, it's been a crazy week!!

GOOD DEED OF THE DAY

In honor of being sick the past few days, donate to the American Red Cross.

MAN DOWN

Being sick is the worst. Like I got real sick, like fever and shaking cold sick Sunday night/Monday morning. It was absolutely the worst, because if you don't get up and get yourself moving you're going to keep feeling worse but you feel so bad you don't want to do anything. Like you're cold from the inside out and you just want to try and get warm and you can't. Also, if you're alone like I was, I was housesitting by myself at the time, it gets way worse. There's literally no one to bring you a glass of water or anything and you have to get up and go all the way to the kitchen, it's the worst of the worst. Being sick is a no go, and really only by mid day Tuesday did I finally feel a little bit better and that was only because I got some great news and I felt a second wind from that.

DREAMS DO COME TRUE!

So my comic book has been finalized and approved at the printers so starting yesterday afternoon and through today I'm taking orders for my first print run. I'm super pumped about this, this is something that I've been working on for a really long time. Essentially in some form or another, my whole life has been building up to this moment right here. I've been a comic book geek forever and this isn't the first time opportunity has come a calling but it's the first time I made it all the way. I've signed two different contracts in my youth for small publishing companies and both of those opportunities while great didn't work out. One of them their launch was a little too ambitious and they never even got to my project in the span of like two years and the other one after a dozen or so rewrites just never really worked out and the project never made it to print. No harm, no foul, just both parties walk away and leave it at that.

ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE

So all of that happened and life goes on and I started to feel like, well maybe this is never going to happen and then time moves on and suddenly it's twelve years later, holy crap, twelve years later and you go… No. I want to get back to this. So here we are, working our way back to this and our first project is Another Day at the Office. It's a humorous one shot about a cop in a city full of super heroes. It's a fun story, meant to be light hearted and well meaning and isn't designed to be mean or take shots at people or say something about the universe. It's just a fun story. Check it out please, if you're interested in a copy, today it's really easy to get one, simply e-mail me at corydlg@gmail.com and I'll get you on the list that I'm building right now for the print run that I'm ordering tonight.

NOT THAT YOU ASKED

This has been a rough week and a bit of an up and down one from bad health to great personal moment and one of the people that I would very much like to celebrate and share this moment with I can't. My Father was an awesome fan of everything I did and anything I wanted to do, he would do the standard "how does it work" questions but once he knew I was locked in on something he just got behind it and cheered me on. I really appreciated that and it's something I regret not showing him more for, almost like he never got to see the rest of this journey I'm on and it stings a little bit, it's added a bittersweet note to today. Call your loved ones and tell them hey.
