This year (& month) marks the 40th anniversary of the world’s most favourite Canadian band THE AMERICAN DEVICES. We had new songs we wanted to unveil & planned to do some live shows to celebrate, but then you-know-what hit the globe. Well, I’ll be damned if we’re gonna come up empty-handed for this momentous event so I commissioned 100 of these limited edition jewel-like die-struck sandblasted lapel pins with antique finish & butterfly clip to celebrate! For only 10 bucks (postage included) I’ll ship you a pin in a zip-lock baggie with an official signed & numbered Certificate of Authenticity, plus a signed, hand-drawn cartoon rendition of the band by yours truly! And if anyone in my Montreal vicinity wants the pin just by itself & can meet me in person for a safe transaction, I’ll knock it down half price to 5 bucks! Email me NOW for deets on how to order this once-in-a-lifetime one-of-a-kind giftie at ricktrembles (at) hotmail (dot) com! Click on the image below for film footage of our little army of lapel pins!

In this weak’s episode: Bubblicious Bereavement Blues! I’ve been posting these 5 at a time since February but since I’ve been making them less frequently, now I’m gonna post each one as I make ’em. Remember; they’re “weaklies,” not weeklies. To read previous entries, dig into my earlier Snubdom posts.

Winter lockdown’s gonna be lonely so I made myself an imaginary friend to talk to about movies! In this very first animated episode of MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY BLABCO I look at the “Godfather of Gore” Herschell Gordon Lewis’s take on the swinging sixties: SUBURBAN ROULETTE (1968)! Making these quick & dirty because the sooner the better when it comes to movie reviews & this is my prototype/template so far! Lemme how I can improve future episodes & what movies you’d like to see me tackle next! Click HERE or on the screencap below to watch!

As promised, here are the five latest episodes of the autobiographical comic I started back in February. Remember; they’re “weaklies,” not weeklies.

As promised, here are five more episodes of the autobiographical comic I started back in February. I’ll continue posting this series here five at a time as I make them. If you wanna catch them fresh off the Cintiq as they come out, follow me on Eff Bee HERE, although that platform’s mandatory compression policies makes them a touch lossy whereas I always post them large & clean on this site. If you wanna read the whole series in order from the very beginning you can start HERE. And there’s a special oversized poster entry HERE.

From the get-go, the images coming in from Wuhan were making me really nervous. As far back as January, I had started wearing thin gloves everywhere I went so that if I had to use touchscreens for debit card payments, my flesh wouldn’t have to make contact with any shared surfaces. And I always used my pinky. I felt a touch silly & hypochondriac doing this. When I published the first installment of my new autobiographical series on social media February 22, 2020, it was to celebrate the charges that got dropped on my garbage infraction. As Covid-19 started creeping its way closer to Montreal, that’s where my comic strip went. My March 1 entry had actually been drawn before I knew about Quebec’s first case. They get darker from then on. I’ll be posting this series here five at a time as I make them. Stay indoors & wash your hands! (To see images full-sized, click on them to open in a new window & use your magnify function).
