The "Stripped" Documentary! And HEY DENVER, and HEY BOISE, and HEY CALGARY!

Hey folks! I have three tidbits to share today and I just noticed that my blogging program has formatting options that I never use so I'm going to use all of them. Allofthem.
Did you know there's a fucking INCREDIBLE documentary about comic strips (both old-school and webcomic) called "Stripped?" Did you know that fucking BILL WATTERSON is in it? Did you know he drew the fucking GORGEOUS DVD COVER? Did you know I'M fucking in it?!
If you don't know which one to click, or if you're the kind of person who likes to take orders from cartoonists you probably don't even know, click here.
OH WAIT. Whoa whoa whoa. What is this $49.99 version at the top, and why is it so expens--OOOHH I see, I see. It includes 16 FUCKING HOURS of original interviews. Apparently I talk for an hour and fucking 20 minutes, what the fuck did I have to say for an hour and 20 minutes? I don't know. I have no recollection. MAYBE I TELL EVERYONE MY DARKEST SECRET, I have no idea, I still haven't watched the whole thing, and am mortified by the possibilities.
(Apparently Jim Davis, Zach Weinersmith and I are the only people who talk for that long, good grief, WHAT COULD WE BE SAYING, guess you'll have to buy 'em to find out!)
(I swear I actually don't know what I said.)
I'm finally going through the list of venue recommendations for my Slingshot Across America signing tour this summer (if you're a venue who's waiting for me to contact you, btw, and you're NOT in the midwest, don't worry, I haven't gotten to you yet!).
Somehow, Denver Colorado has had ZERO venue requests/suggestions/invitations, and I'd like to do a signing while I'm in town! Or at least brunch. Can we get together for brunch, Denver?
For that matter, Boise, Idaho, I'm pretty certain I don't have any recommendations for venues out your way, either.
So, Denver and Boise, if you want me to stop in and visit while I'm in your town, and you know a good place that might host a signing for me, let me know at the following e-mail address!
Look at that formatting swag. I'll be in Denver around July 12/13th, and Boise around July 15/16th.
I'm coming for you this weekend. I'm going to get you. Do not resist.
Bethesda, Maryland one of the best comic conventions on earth, IMHO! low ticket price and very cool underground/small press artists. I'll be at table K13 selling GWS books and other goodies, and on Saturday at 2 pm I'm hosting a figure drawing workshop: Figure Drawing for Cartoonists! More info soon...
Shepherdstown, West Virginia a self-guided tour of artists in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. my studio will be open to guests and I'll be hosting two other artists. I'll have framed originals, GWS books, and other goodies!
