What Are We Going To Do

Time both slows down and speeds up when you’re not doing a lot. When every day is the same, they seem to take forever, and yet because they leave little impression, thinking back on it you can’t tell how much time has gone by. Which is another way to say I don’t know how long […]

Through An Open Window

(As promised, I’ve taken inventory of the T-shirts remaining, by the way. See the swag post. Every order before December 1st will get a bonus red DGC notebook! -ctan) — The night clerk’s name was Ricky, by the way, and he was still in high school, but he only did a half day and then […]

DGC “Gift Guide” (Swag and Books)

OK, a couple of folks had asked for this, and I promised during the anniversary livechat that I’d post what was available. I finally took inventory and here’s what we’ve got. Orders placed before December 1st I will be able to ship within the USA in time for Christmas but note that Hanukah starts on […]

My Bloody Valentine

(Here’s the Saturday post I owe you guys from last week! -ctan) It might have been that same night when I couldn’t sleep and got talking to the night clerk at the motel’s front desk about stuff, and he casually asked when Remo was coming back, and I casually asked how much we were spending […]

DGC Anniversary final post! Wrapping it up here!

And here’s the final piece of art of Daron and Ziggy we have for the anniversary celebration! I can’t even remember how the idea of the strawberry came up. The artist was asking me about their relationship and talking about Daron coming out of his shell and somehow we got to Daron feeding Ziggy a […]

Mother’s Little Helper

Remember to join Daron for a chat from 8-9p tonight and me on YouTube at https://youtu.be/Xmew_g9ktp8 from 9p-10p eastern time! — The week following her treatments was pretty miserable. There’s no other way to put it. I can give you the medical terms like “digestive difficulties” but those words don’t really convey what it was […]

DGC Anniversary post 7

Today’s chapter is coming at the usual time (barring technical difficulties) but here’s today’s art for an early start! And don’t forget to join Daron for a chat from 8-9p and me tonight on YouTube at https://youtu.be/Xmew_g9ktp8 from 9p-10p eastern time! The ring’s effect on Ziggy has been profound, hasn’t it? I think he was […]

DGC Anniversary Post 6

This is a really fun one, no? And I have some song lyrics for you today. Ziggy wrote this really raunchy one he called “Drugs, Sex, and Rock and Roll” while he was working with Jordan on his solo record, and in the end they cut it as too raunchy. But I thought you all […]

Other Voices

I want you to understand what I was going through, but I didn’t understand it myself, and I still don’t. So I’ll just tell you what was happening and maybe you can figure it out. I don’t mean what was happening logistically: what had happened in that realm was I had become the person Claire […]

DGC Anniversary Day 5

Funnily enough, when I gave artists the choice between drawing Ziggy or drawing Daron, they tended to choose Ziggy. Not that I (or Daron) mind that at all. Ziggy’s very pleasing to look at. :-) I have another really really old tidbit for you guys now. This is the first time I tried to write […]
