I know this text page item from The Witching Hour #54 (May 1975) sounds a little ridiculous, but I’ve done a little research…. …and it tracks. Recommended listening:

Maura and I used to do an in-house “date night” thing on Thursdays during the late Aughts. We’d pick up Chinese takeout from the Fen Yang House on the way home from work, take care of our critter-related obligations, then settle down in the living room for rich helping of MSG and NBC’s prime time […]

Eulogy for a king

In April 2016, Maura and I gathered the quartet of feral feline siblings who’d taken up residence in our garage and brought them to the vet’s office to be spayed. The two short-haired sisters — a tuxedo cat dubbed Nubby and a gray tabby named Little Baby Setz — turned out to be extremely pregnant, […]

It wouldn’t be the Halloween season without a black cat (or several, in our case), and this fancy little man has been ghosting our feeding station for the past few months. Though he started off wary of humans, he eventually consented to some skritches and pats from Maura a couple of weeks ago. He decided […]

“So what’s the assignment, again?” “A wereshark. Like a werewolf, but a shark.” “So is it like a special-looking shark or something?” “No, it looks like a regular shark, though the art has to express the ‘were’ part. You’re smart. You’ll figure it out. Oh, and I need it on my desk at eight tomorrow […]

It’s Friday the 13th, a day traditionally associated with bad luck. I’m not a superstitious person. Even if was, any additional ill omens would be gilding the misfortune lily at this point. It would take a cutting edge supercomputer to figure out how many times those little monsters cross my path on a daily basis. […]
