Firstly, pleased to announce the birth of Alexander Holt shortly after that last post. All is going well so far. The family’s had a surprisingly smooth transition to being a four-piece, though my workload’s about to get a lot less flexible with the return to GNW writing next week, so if there are a disproportionate number of jokes about pooey nappies and sleep deprivation I apologise in advance.
At this stage diminutives are still not finally settled, so he could be known as Alex, Al, Xander or just plain Der. Hopefully not the last.
Speaking of names beginning with X, I’m pleased to announce that Mat and I have finally gotten time to let loose on the interwebs our animations Xorctron and Uglifex Prime, a series about alien overlord vaudevillian comics with a natty line in human jokes. This was a project we originally put together as a proposed segment for The Sideshow, but which never made it past the pilots. And we all know how what happened to that show. Not that I’m suggesting evil alien overlords exerted control over the ABC programming department. (Though I’m not not suggesting it.)
So anyway it’s finally found its way to the natural home of evil alien comedy: Youtube. And you can get all five episodes we’ve made to date over here. Tremble in your boots, Earthlings, you are but fodder for intergalactic bad jokes! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Check back in two weeks for your regular dose of comic leftovers and refuse.
