I fully intended on updating last night. Instead, I found myself immersed in a newly discovered web comic, Nothing Nice to Say. The self-proclaimed "world's first online punk comic" has simultaneously discouraged me from attempting a web comic and inspired me to finally do one. I feel like Mitch Clem has already done it better than I could. Although I'd have a slightly different perspective, you'd hear the same song. However, the success of a comic that touches on issues such as the flawed morality of organized religion and sexism then makes fun of Fifteen and Pennywise indicates the availability of an eager audience.
In encourage you to browse all of the archives (as many jokes are running), but I've handpicked a few of my favs.
I Hate Bill Keane
Millions of Dead Cartoonists

In case you're not as indie know as me (and I hope for your sake you're not as nerdy as me), the SXSW festival is coming up. South by Southwest features hundreds of bands, films, and other performers. Anyone who's anyone in the independent media community will be there. I will not be there.
But I do have almost a thousand mp3s from the showcasing talent. These torrent files feature songs from Islands (formerly Unicorns), Mark Lanegan & Isobel Campbell, and RJD2. I highly recommend the dl, but make sure you have enough space on your harddrive and remember to upload; don't be a leach.
That's all for now friend.
