I keep up with James Kochalka’s online strip, and if I see a link somewhere or someone tells me about something, I’ll look at it, but I don’t usually keep up with any sites other than the ‘American Elf.’ I always have this feeling that there’s not enough space in the screen, like everything’s always getting cut off.

I think Dilbert is actually a radical strip.
I use pure acetone Nail Polish Remover from Nails Inc. to really strip the nail.

It’s a liquid dehydrator that you paint onto each nail.
I do get credit for having a California sound to my music, but I don’t think people really know what that means – they think the Beach Boys. I’m thinking more like Sunset Strip in the 1960s and stuff like that.
