62,000 US drivers have been pulled over and had their cash seized by small-town American cops in the past 13 years, under civil forfeiture laws that let them declare anyone to be a probable terrorist and/or drug dealer and take their money without charge or evidence; the only way to get it back is to hire a lawyer and return, over and over again, to the tiny town you were passing through when you were robbed at badgepoint.
She then read out my review from Time Out New York (it was like, a really really good one stop bringing it up you guys) and she insisted everybody go and see my show and if there was anything she could do to help to let her know.Then she told me to get the fuck off the stage. It was her turn to perform.

Earlier this year, San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum featured a Sandman exhibit. While that exhibit has run its due course, there’s always something worth checking out there, so be sure to add it to your itinerary should you happen to be in the area. The Sandman exhibit may have come and gone, but it’s forever preserved (or at least until my hard drive dies) in the form of digital iPhoto album. I have the gal at the museum’s reception desk, who was kind enough to allow me to take non-flash photography photos, to thank for that. I’ll pay her kindness forward by sharing a few select photos I took while there - but not all-at-once. Where’s the fun in that? I’ll start this ball rolling with a photo of Sandman vol. 1, number 1, page 1.
The exhibition was amazing.
