Let's get all that old self-indulgent narcissistic heartbreak CRAP out of here.

HEY dudes. What the FUCK is up?

How've you been? It's been, like, years! Eons! Whole eternities of time have passed in some alternate universe between when I last checked my deviantART and RIGHT NOW! Can you believe that? Crazier things, let me tell you.

So what has been up? JUST ABOUT FUCKIN' E'ER THANG.

I'm ABOUT to post this 18 page comic that I've been sitting on, so y'all can hold onto your britches for that thing. But man I am not even sure where to start with all the other dope stuffs.

Let me see.

OH! Okay, so the other day, my label released our very first full-length album, and we put it on the internet and made it totally free to listen to and download. So, yeah, you should probably go get you a copy and tell your friends. We're super proud of it. And there's lots more coming.

Also, Jelani and I do a weekly podcast now, so listen to some of that and discover how wonderfully charming and hilarious we are. It's actually...I think it's pretty damn groovy. So you know, am I selling it? Is it sold?

So, like, in addition to the podcast, we now release music loops on Newgrounds every week, free to download and use in any flash games and movie projects y'all are working on (I'm looking at YOU Rocko the Taco (shit I don't even remember how this site does fancy formatting anymore)).

Pluuuuuus I just dropped a huuuuuge story about my awesome trip to kentucky on my blog, which you can find here. For real. Motherfucker clocked in at like 104 pages. Maybe I'll post it here too? I dunno, fuck it. We'll see.

OH YEAH! In addition to all this other crazy crap, while we're releasing full comic books and novellas and albums and podcasts and original loops and all that, (jeez we been hustling) we're doing an experimental SOFT RELEASE of a completely instrumental album we've been working on called THE STREETS OF SAINT LOUIS VOL. 1. Basically, it's an electro ode to our hometown of Saint Louis, MO, in which we took the various thriving neighborhoods around here (The Grove, Grand Avenue, the Delmar Loop, the Morgan Ford Business District, etc) and composed BACKGROUND music for them as if they were LEVELS IN A SIDE SCROLLING BEAT-EM-UP.

Heh. I'm pretty stoked about that last bit. Well, everything. But mostly that last bit. We do have long term dreams to take all these creative brands and intellectual properties and turn them into video games, t shirt lines, comic anthologies, more music, all KINDS of stuff. If there's ANYone you should have your eyes on in the coming months weeks years whatever, it's US. I guarantee it.

Did I miss anything??

Well, now that I think about it, I missed a whole bunch of REALLY important stuff, but my back hurts and I need to exercise. I'll tell you when you're older. ;)

Till next time.

-Dr. Dan

Current Residence: St. Louis, MO

My name's Daniel Drake, and I'm a professional musician and published cartoonist in the Saint Louis area. I am also known for cooking unique novelty pancakes on graveyard shifts at the landmark Courtesy Diner on South Kingshighway.

My band is what I really consider 'my baby', and we've been scoring bigger and better gigs, and buzz is starting to spread about us. You can catch us the third wednesday of every month playing in the Thaxton Speakeasy (make sure and find the password!), every other First Fridays Arts Affair at 2720 Cherokee, and we're going to be touring the midwest soon.

All of our published music, available for free download!

New Fractal Animation on YouTube!


Hi there. I wanted to invite you to see my new fractal animation on YouTube. If you would please read the write up below it, it explains a few things. You may have to play it through twice because it is not at a normal speed so it starts out a little blurry until it adjusts to the speed. I hope you enjoy it!…


Sincerely, Sharon E. Thomas -

I'm here to say that thing that Frosty the snowman always says when he gets his hat.
