Lately, I've been finding a lot of joy in revisiting the work of Robert Crumb. I've read his stuff since I was a young child and it never fails to amuse me. I love the way in which he simply laughs off the absurdity of our society and illustrates his mocking contempt for it. The honesty in his art is enlivening and admirable.

I was vaguely aware of his work, and that he was an ass-man like myself, but haven't read much of his stuff




It really boils my piss when I'm perving on a hot woman on YouTube or an article with her photo and it turns out she's married and/or has kids. Get out of my sight.

Hahaha - the same thing happens to me with InstaGram sometimes - I'm scrolling down an interesting feed, when there's a suddenly out of place 'this is my man and I couldn't do it without him' which has clearly been stuck in to reassure him she's not selling nudes.  Funnily enough, the men are normally of a type - tren build, some gym-wear tights with tight ankles, baseball cap, stylish beard, obligatory tattoos, occasionally seen smoking a cigar of some sort... ;D

Yeah, lol, he's a total deviant and he always draws himself as one, too. My father had these comics of his carelessly lying around, and I'd just disappear for hours to read them and think 'what the fuck is going on' haha. You'd definitely find them funny. One of his post-LSD haze characters 'Angelfood McSpade' still pisses people off to this day. I don't think he ever intended the sketches to be hurtful - they're just satirizing everything and recognizing the attitudes and thoughts of people who'd rather pretend that they don't exist.

I was watching a really hot YouTuber go through her 'typical day' as a professional. As soon as I saw the second toothbrush in her holder I was like:

Something about the internet transforms me into a self-entitled objectifier of the people who put themselves out there, haha. She's not allowed to have a partner!

Loving the anti-hijab protests in Iran. Wish I was there to awkwardly throw out a few gentle words of encouragement.  'And also burn the bra, ladies! C'mon, who's with me? Burn the bra! Burn the bra!'

If Americans were allowed to travel to the Islamic Republic, I'd be right there with you.

I have no doubt that the two of us could engender a revolution to eclipse 1979. A sexual revolution. With tits everywhere.

Hey!! (Taffin running behind the car which has set off for some Iranian fun...)....

 ;D

Apropos of this general direction of conversation, I've always thought that one of the best jobs in the world has to be an Iranian Ob-Gyn Doctor....

Taffin, you'll obviously be sent in to scout ahead prior to our arrival. We'll have you posing as a left-leaning journalist who's keen to document the feminist uprising while surreptitiously compiling a list of the biggest slags.

You fellas should do a podcast.  Not bullshitting.

My girlfriend keeps suggesting it. Thing is, I know just how badly I'll fuck my life over and destroy any chance of doing anything credible again if I openly joked the way I do on here or with my best friends, haha. I'm surrounded by moral grandstanders and idiots. I still have aspirations of teaching one day, so I currently have to suppress my urge to start a Getbig podcast and dress up as Hitler for Halloween.
