Yep, it’s Friday once again. Time for another ‘tru-ish’ tale about Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY!(#41)! This week: The Happiest Place on Earth… or NO, REALLY… WHAT MAKES IT THE ‘HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH’?
Yes, a piece of East Colfax… Smiley’s… The Happiest Place on Earth… The World’s Largest Discount Laundromat… is now gone.
It’s Friday once again. Time for another ‘tru-ish’ tale about Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#40)! This week: The Price of a Free Drink… or THE INTERESTING PEOPLE YOU MEET IN A DIVE BAR RESTROOM.
My friends and I have an interesting game… and when I say ‘interesting’, that is not at all what I actually mean. It’s simply something to pass the time while waiting for the next round of drinks. We would sit in bars (generally around Colfax) and debate ‘Is this a dive bar?’ For most of the bars we normally visit, we break all bars into three categories: Dive, Neighborhood Bar, and Venue.
Now (for the uninformed), a dive bar is generally just an informal bar with cheap drinks, no frills, one that’s been around for a while, and has a small sense of history.
Now (for the uninformed), a dive bar is generally just an informal bar with cheap drinks, no frills, one that’s been around for a while, and has a small sense of history. No Long Island Ice Teas. No Margaritas. Just a beer and a shot. I always found that a big clue on what doesn’t make a dive bar is… calling itself a ‘dive bar.’ Other’s can call it one, but when the establishment starts referring to itself as a dive, then it just isn’t. That happens a lot around college campuses. A neighborhood bar (or pub) is just that. A few rungs up the ladder from a dive, more expensive drinks, and also less of a chance random violence breaking out around you. A venue is a venue. There’s always a bar with cheap drinks, but a god awful racket generally starts up most nights around 9 pm.
As for ‘sports bars’… yeah, we just avoid them entirely.
Which brings us to this week’s comic. Yes, this is a true story related to me that happened in a bar on Capitol Hill. The original bar is gone, but there is another one in it’s place. I won’t tell you where, but buy me a drink sometime and it may slip.
It’s Friday. Time for another ‘tru-ish’ tale about Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY!(#39)! This week: A Gang of One!… or DYING IS EASY. COMEDY IS HARD.
So… here’s a joke…
A priest, a rabbi, and a pastor are sitting in a bar across the street from a known brothel. As they are sipping their drinks, they see a rabbi walk into this den of iniquity.
“Oy! It’s awful to see another teacher of the Torah give into low desire”, says the rabbi.
A short while later, they see a pastor also walk into the bordello. “My my my… It’s terrible to see a man of the cloth give into such temptation”, says the pastor.
Even later, the trio see a priest enter the brothel. “Well, it’s so nice to see the ladies, who’ve been used so poorly, have time to confess their sins,” says the priest.
Is it a good joke? I thought so, but then I have a brain that can maybe hold about three to five jokes at a time, the shorter the better (“Nuns do it out of habit” still makes me smile, but then I was raised Catholic.
What? It’s Friday again? That means its time for a new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#38)! This week: The Furry Issue… or YES, FURRIES STILL CREEP ME RIGHT OUT!
So… I went looking around the series of tubes that we humans call ‘The Internet’ for some way to promote my kind of funny little comic. How can I get my illustrated missive into other people’s virtual hands? Hey Eyeballs, look over here towards my corner of the internet and such! So, I went looking at webcomic hubs in an attempt to find some way to reach a broader audience (…cuz, that’s where the money is and I’m a greedy little miser!) I was a little unnerved to find that the few sites I found were mostly dedicated to furry/manga comics… which I have little to do with.
“Excuse me… I do a webcomic about living, drinking, insanity, despair, stories, and about some of the interesting characters that you meet in the city. Would you be interested in… “
“Does it have weirdly drawn men and women depicted as cartoon cats and dogs getting in to sexual and/or space adventures?”
… Also, check out under the comic for this week’s VERY SPECIAL MESSAGE!!!!
