Hey, Hooligans!

I think I was trying to wait to post this journal until I had recorded a better video for our Laugh It Forward Kickstarter, but I've been having trouble getting a mic that works with my Canon Vixia, so I'm going ahead and posting now instead of waiting 'till at least Tuesday. ;P

The Laugh It Forward Kickstarter launches in a little over two weeks on March 6th! I did manage to find 60 people who answered the call for artists to spotlight, and about 17 of them have already filled out their interview questions. One person dropped out, so if you'd like a spotlight during the March campaign, there's one empty seat. :D

I think the project is pretty ready for launch. I am of course pretty nervous. Here's the preview if you'd like to offer your thoughts on it, that'd be great! :D

I know the video's real rough -- I'm waiting on a new mic from Amazon before I record another one where I'll be more excited and hopefully funnier. :D

The endocrinologist changed my mix of diabetes drugs. Reduced my insulin by half down to 18 units a day, which is great, but the new Victoza and especially Metformin prescriptions have been kicking my ass for three weeks. I'm told it's a temporary adjustment period, hopefully I'll be better before Tuesday when my new mic arrives. ;P In the meantime my work has been a bit slow.

How have you hooligans been?! Let's catch up!

Hi! I'm Sam and I create Laughter for a Better World! You can help us do that by joining us on Patreon! Or just check out and share our comics at Woohooligan!

I have lots of sources of inspiration, my top three being the Daily Show's John Stewart, Adam Conover and George Carlin. Others include Gary Larson, Warner Brothers cartoons, public radio and cognitive science. I'm always looking for new material and challenging new projects.

And now I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Bob Dylan: "any man not busy being born is busy dying." :nod:

Hey, Hooligans! I just put up a new satirical blog the other day titled, as you've obviously guessed, Punching Nazis: A Handy Guide!

I also got my 60 artists just at the end of the month and sent out the forms for the artist spotlights during my Kickstarter next month! I've already seen several responses, and, the google form doesn't work the way I thought it did! :P But the foul-up isn't so bad that I can't work with it.

I've been seeing a lot more engagement with people on Twitter lately, sharing my tweets about a couple of the strips and blogs I'm trying to promote, like my comedy manifesto and the trickle-down economics info-comic.

Oh, subscribers on our mailing list TRIPLED last month to 93! :D

I also created an AMA that launches the day of the Kickstarter: Sam Dealey Roasts Himself! An AMA on Comedy, Comics, Autism, Near Death Birthdays, Depression, and why Laughter is a Moral Imperative. The page says there are already 108 RSVPs who want to know when it's live, and 69 questions! :horny:

What were you up to last month?!

Thank you for sharing yourself!

p.s. My friend Angel is selling some things on Ebay to fund some things she needs like dental work. See if you can give her a hand!

Happy Holidays, Hooligans!

I'll get you in our spreadsheet and follow up with more details closer to March.

This next subject is a bit personal and emotional for me. I spent most of this week working on a very specific blog on my Tumblr, about changing careers to comedy and how it forces me to wade through a lot of very disgusting marketing stuff in order to do this cool comedy for you that really is my passion. It took me most of the week and five revisions to feel ready to publish, and the last two days I spent uncontrollably sobbing over my keyboard. (Many of them happy tears.) I hope you enjoy it! :heart:

In funnier news, as I braved the zombie apocalypse we know as "holiday shopping" this year, I found a great many weird and wonderful and definitely stupid things! I posted a blog about that on my Tumblr, with photos of all the stupid things found at the store this year:

Also mentioned in that blog, my friend ChibiCelina sent me this really cool hand-drawn picture of Lucifer and Amity from my Hellbent story. It was a thank-you for something, but I actually don't remember what. :B This is a lot more menacing than Lucifer ever looks when I draw him. ;P You can read Hellbent starting here: www.woohooligan.com/comics/214

Hey, Hooligans!

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that I'm launching the Kickstarter for my next two books in March. I'm also using this as an opportunity to promote some of my friends and other artists. So, every day during and maybe even before the launch of the Kickstarter, I'll be publishing a daily update and artist spotlight!

All I need from you right now is an idea of the projects you'd like to promote and a way to contact you -- social media, an email address, whatever. Leave me a comment or a note. We'll talk more about the details of the promotion closer to March.

If you're new here, Hi! :wave: My name is Sam, I'm a comedian and a cartoonist. If you're wondering if this promotion is a good fit for you, you can check out some of my comedy here: Laughter Is a Moral Imperative and some of my more popular comics from 2016.

I also review webcomics.

And please share this with your friends!

Thank you for sharing yourself,
Sam
Hey, Hooligans!

I made the last couple updates on my Patreon public.

First, both of my younger kids (16 and 19) got official autism diagnoses yesterday. It's good news, because it makes them eligible for supports they wouldn't otherwise have access to.

www.patreon.com/posts/official…

And the other thing is I'm planning a Kickstarter for March to publish the next two Woohooligan books.

www.patreon.com/posts/kickstar…

And the rest of today I'm working on another comic page and a couple of comedy articles.

How are you folks doin'?

Sam

p.s. If you haven't seen it yet, check out Laughter is a Moral Imperative. I'm really happy with this little manifesto, I think it's one of the best things I've written. :D

:new: Also, my friend Amy lilrebelart is having some tech issues and could really use a commission or two. Here's her commission page radamy.wixsite.com/lilrebelart…

Hey, Melon Girl! I'm doing good! Happy Holidays!

:holly: :heart: :holly: :heart: :holly: :heart: :holly:

I've been having some health issues with my blood-sugar, but I have an endocrinologist appointment at the end of January, and I'm not letting it get in the way of planning my Kickstarter in March! I'm also going to use that campaign to help promote some other friends and creators. :D

Nothin' wrong with that. Even if you've identified a life goal or two, it's still good to take time for new/other things. It helps you stay rounded and keeps you from stagnating. :nod: Plus you need relaxation time.

What's the latest interest? New game? Parkour? ;P
