June 24th 2009 was a momentous day in the life of Michael Shaudis. Having undergone the initiation ceremony at the CLAW’s Open Swim, he has now joined the ranks of absurdity. The new and improved back room at the Mandolin Café was filled with rejoicing, and an unusual amount of tea given the amount of testosterone in the room. Did I mention that our room sponsor, the Mandolin Café, has remodeled and now has a new and improved kitchen along with a enlarged back room that small, and even semi-big, group can rent for meetings and secret gatherings? Well, they do and might consider it a place for your next gathering.

Topics discussed were a comic page on Feed Tacoma, ideas tossed around at a recent Tacoma Circus meeting, Iron Artist at the Tacoma Art Museum, 24 Hour Comic Challenge coming on October 3rd 2009, the cultural significance of Eddy Izzard, and whether David Carradine truly was wearing fishnet stockings as he passed into the sweet hereafter. In short, if you weren’t there you missed a heck of a good time.

    I just got back from Afghanistan, now I have to refinish the aquafortis on the stock (I didn’t have time to seal it properly before I was called up this last time), and put new beeswax on the barrel. Grrr. Hope all is well!
