Why you no post, Dave Campbell?

Wow, sorry I have been so scarce of late. Nothing like frittering away one's readership by going AWOL for a week.

I hope to get back into a regular posting schedule soon, but I am dealing with some generic Personal Shit right now and the world of comic books and blogging has to take a back seat to real life. Sometimes I wish I could solve all my problems with violence like my favorite superheroes...
You know, wait a second. Maybe I can solve my problems with violence and acrobatics! I'm going to try that.

So anyway, thanks for visiting and sorry about the lack of updates. I hope to get back in the saddle again this week and start kicking ass once again.

Oh, and to the two assholes who emailed me with their passive-agressive complaints about my lack of updates - I will send you a refund check for your costly subscription to my blog ASAP, you big turds, you.
Some day soon I will write a lengthy post about my perverse love for the 70's live-action kids' show Jason of Star Command (pictured below). Look at those guys. How can you not want to be part of that? That's what the phones of the future will look like. And the belt buckles of the future.

wow. are you sure that guys head isn't photoshopped? thats unreal.

don't worry, dave. it is all good.

Tom Bondurant said...

Hey, Ted Danson and a young Dr. Phlox were on Jason of Star Command!

Jeff Hebert said...

I can't figure out why he's speaking into his Dr. Scholl's Orthopedic Insole. To each his own, I guess.

Dave, if you get a chance I think you'd get a kick out of a tidbit I just posted over on my blog. I bought an old 1970's Batman record/comic book set and there's a truly appalling part at the end where Batman advocates a frontal lobotomy for the Joker. I'm still floored. I had a friend in the sound department record it digitally for me so you can hear it for yourself. The direct link to just the mp3 of Batman giving his spiel is at http://www.jeffness.net/blog/Batman.mp3.

Ted said...

You are the first comic blogger I ever read. You are also the best (eat it, Sims). I hope that all of your personal issues are solved and you get back to being Airwolf soon.

Ride the Snake!

Thanks for the glimpse into the future, Dave! I'm thinking two things here:

1. Can't wait for the belt buckles of the future. I've always felt that my belts were a little too waist-oriented, and could benefit from being worn much, much higher on my body.

2. I'm glad I never threw out my blow-dryer, 'cuz the poofy look is coming back...

SanctumSanctorumComix said...

In the FUTURE...all of us will be wearing belt-buckles around our chest, because old dudes ALWAYS wear their pants pulled up that high.

And we'll hang out with living TROLL dolls (or a de-powered "Lucky Charms" Leprechaun).
Of course, that COULD be a residual effect from the heavy meds that we'll be on.

WeeeeEEEEEEeeeeee!!!!

hydrogenguy said...

That... person on the right is possibly the scariest-looking human being I've ever seen.

Mike P said...

I have long since learned to only get worried about non-updating sites and blogs after about a month and a half of inactivity. Then I send out a worried email, wondering if the person maintaining the blog is dead and hope for a return.

Vincent Dacak said...

Forget the guy on the right, the dude talking to his insole doesn't look all that great.

MD said...

Thank you, Dave, thank you.

I have tried for years to remember the name of this show, this Jason of Star Command. I have fond memories of this show blowing my then eight-year-old mind, but somewhere along the way I forgot what the damn show was called. I've pestered friends for years by trying to describe it, hoping they too would remember this cheesy piece of ephemera. They called me crazy.

The biggest impression that this show left on me was that it had a proper ending: Plot threads were tied up and the villain defeated. Children's TV shows just didn't do that back then. They tended to string you along with no sense of time passing.

So I am in you debt, Dave, for returning to me a piece of my childhood. I'm off to YouTube (that is not a euphamism, no matter how it sounds). I hope your Generic Personal stuff works out okay (also, not a euphamism).

Thanks

ghostman said...

I saw the name "Craig Littler" and said "Who?" So I looked him up on imdb and discovered two important facts: 1) As of 2005, Craig Littler has been the Gorton Fisherman, so his career hasn't stagnated or anything, and 2) He guest-starred on an episode of Airwolf ("Inn at the End of the Road") in 1985, which is Airwolf pretty much by default.

Oh, and those two guys with the complaints? Fuck those guys.

Doctor Robo said...

It always cracks me up when people have the balls to complain about something they get for free. Tell those clowns to suck it.

Glad to see that you're still alive, though. I was starting to get worried that perhaps the cubicle monsters had finally gotten to you.

Admiral Diego said...

Hey, I have an idea: There's this guy who writes the blog purely out of love. I think the blog is great. I'm going to harass him about it.

Did I mention this blog is free? Yeah -- I read it at no cost. This makes all the sense in the world.

McGone said...

Can you do a post where you write about the two e-mailers, and maybe even reprint their e-mails? Because that would be Airwolf.

Were they complaining because without your updates they actually had to do work during day?

Anonymous said...

Jason not only had guys talking into shoes.....leperachauns in out space...but get this......SCOTTY!!!

how great was that!!

I remember seeing him on there and thinking that scotty must be moonlighting!

timmdrums said...

Hey Campbell - my friend and I read your blog, when you update it! We're both Seattle boys, we should all meet up for coffee at the emerald city con on march 31st. Sound good?

Jon B. Knutson said...

I'm a fan of Jason of Star Command, too... and with Ark II and Space Academy already released on DVD by BCI Eclipse, can Jason be too far behind?

Jon

plok said...

Camelopardus! You can buy Ark II on DVD?

Do you have to watch it, too?

Anonymous said...

I don't know if this is happening for everyone, but on the side bar, where you link to other blogs, every apostrophe has turned into this weird series of code - like four or five characters. It might just be at my end, but if it isn't, I thought you'd want to know.

Bully said...

Man, I loved Jason of Star Command. How much did I love Jason of Star Command? I wrote Jason of Star Command fan fiction.

I was a lot younger then, of course.

(And yes, it's going to be released on DVD: the Space Academy DVD lists it as forthcoming in 2007.)

Tom said...

Can I still get that refund if I lost my receipt?

Oldsmoblogger said...

Let me get this straight (you should pardon the expression)...you're gonna post on Jason of Star Command, and not post a picture of Nicole Davidoff.

Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrotting. Foxtrot. ;-P

Jeff Rients said...

Wasn't Jason of Star Command the show with the asteroid base? I always thought that was awesome.

Jamie Ott said...

You suck, Campbell! I demand a new post from you immediately!!!

Wait, you just posted.....nevermind.

Jamie

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Maybe his belt buckle of the future is holding in his infected gall bladder of the future. Didn't think of that, didja Mr. Smartypants?

Anonymous said...

As much as I love a good reference to Jason of Star Command and bitchin' about morons who complain about no posts, I'm still desperately waiting for an update of the trials and tribulations of the one, the only- the Velvet Maurader.

Please come back, man...

Michael said...

First, you've won me on blogs. I used to hate them. HATE. HATE THEM.

You've won me, singlehandedly. I love your blog. My girlfriend is using it as an excuse to try and convince me to move to Seattle, if such blogs as thee live there.

Also, while trying to spread the joy, your "Previous Post" function seems to be a little verklempt today.

DarkJawa said...

If there's anything comics have taught us, it's that you can't rush quality-- I mean, when has there been a quality bi-monthly title?

Even if you never posted ever again, there's still an ginormous archive full of fun, a veritable long box of The Long Box, and so you'll get no complaints from me.

People complained about the lack of updates on a blog?

Refund check. HA!

I'm quoting you if anyone hassles me about slow updates to my free webcomics.

SwanShadow said...

Hope the personal stuff works out, Dave.

As Steely Dan once said:

When the demon is at your door, in the morning it won't be there no more.

Any major dude will tell you.

J. B. Lauer said...

I'm glad you're with us again, Mr. Campbell. Your VM blog has been great reading material for me the past few days, and I love getting a glimpse at all I missed because my parents wouldn't buy their "little girl" violent ol' comic books.

I recently pre-ordered The Watchmen, though, and I've already burned through Deadpool's various series, so perhaps if I try, I can catch up.

Keep writing, and good luck with the life and all. Come back when you can.

Anonymous said...

Glad to have you back Dave.

By the way, when did Lou Ferigno and Art Garfunkel every appear on TV together? I never knew Jason of Star Command was so cool.

Mikey said...

Luckily for you Mister Blog Man, I've been really busy too, and haven't been checking in lately: So don't bother mailing me a refund check.

PayPal will be fine.

I need some hot comics-related juice, and stat.

Make it happen, baby.

ohgrl said...

Jason of Star Command by day, Disco Pirate by night. Often found after hours clubbing with The Cheetah.

Jason said...

I am now contemplating legally changing my last name to 'of Star Command'

I loved that show. And the one where Bigfoot was a superhero.

SQT said...

That dude's forehead is frightening.

Glad to see you're alive and well; I look forward to seeing you alive, well and marching soon.

Chance said...

Yeah, that looks like a good show. There's a big stupid Neanderthal Ted Danson holding an '80s cell phone, and over on the right we have GAAHHH WHAT THE HELL IS THAT

Brad Curran said...

Hope everything gets straightened out for you soon, Dave. Trust me, it will take more than one week of inactivity to lose your audience. It will be at least a week and a half before we all forget who you are, so you have a couple days yet to straighten out your life and get back to the important business of mocking Extreme Studios comics.

Some guy with a pen said...

Holy Shit!
FINALLY someone ELSE who used to watch this show!
I mention it to some people from my generation and they look at me like I'm retarded.
Of course, that's usually because I act that way, but that's no excuse for a piss-poor recollection of 70's pop trivia.
Rock on, Dave. Rock on.
