SosfDavidO here, and whoa, we’re still in Memphis, likely for the rest of the week as In today’s strip shows the recording session get underway.
My only question is, is all of this going to become meta and give birth to an actual music video or album, like Luann did?*
*I take no responsibility for the horrible earworm that is Luann’s “Hey Boy”.

Dinkle is the only able-bodied person in the room and rather than helping Carl, he does a face palm in dismay. Carl dies, Dinkle is guilty of depraved indifference.
Carl’s breathing apparatus is malfunctioning in the middle of the night in a strange city and the only person in the vicinity who’s under eighty is blind. Simply hilarious. If I wanted to see woeful gags about miserable elderly people I’d read “Crankshaft”. Even more so than usual, TomBan should be ashamed of himself, as this is a real piece of garbage even by his sad-sack sorry standards. “Tape hiss…the oxygen tank could hiss!”…that’s some real comedy brainstorming all right.
The worst of it is that if you were to try to explain to him how horribly ill-conceived this dumpster fire of an arc is, he’d look at you and smile that big, stupid and indulgent smile and inform you that “It’s called writing.”
I’d rather spend the week watching Crankshaft not understand what creosote build-up is.
I think the room where this was written was as oxygen-deprived as Carl.
Same goes for the room where “Hey Boy” was conceived.
Interesting that we have a busload of people who are otherwise confined to an assisted living facility making a 700 mile trip and wandering all over Memphis, but there’s no indication that any caregivers made the trip. It’s like token-black-bluesman just took the bus keys off the nail on the wall next to the front desk and loaded everybody in and took off while the staff was out for lunch. Under normal circumstances, a nurse would be there to take care of any troubles he’s having with the oxygen apparatus, but instead he’s apparently left to his own devices.
So, is Carl gonna die or what?
Given the way he’s clutching those hoses, gradually squeezing off the supply of oxygen…and given the banner. I would say so. Lucky Bastard. First he escaped Bedside Manor, then he escaped Westview, now he’s about to escape the nightmare that is Funkyverse.
Certainly explains both the constant pain he’s in and everyone else grimacing when he speaks.
Blind Willie Washington the engineer looks an awful lot like Quincy Jones
This strip is such garbage. I want to use terrible swear words to describe it.
“Thanks” for introducing me to that music video. I thought it was some kind of joke, but apparently it’s a real thing.
