Consuming Society

Hello. Throbgoblins International have had a somewhat longer break than anticipated due to the strangely determined incompetence of our broadband provider. But here we are again. Frank has rusted up a bit over the past month or so (as have I) and it may take a little time to get us both back in working order, but the planet seems largely as we left it so I'm sure we'll have plenty to complain about it once we're oiled up a bit. In the meantime, here is an Only Planet strip that originally appeared in New Internationalist magazine.

Over the next few weeks I've got my work cut out inputing the last of the data into the new all-singing, all-dancing website created by Graeme Sherriff at edible ecosystems, to whom I owe a bucketfull of thanks. Graeme's done a fabulous job for a pittance, grappling with unreasonable demands and a technically befuddled client, so I hope I don't screw it up. The idea is that I'll transfer everything over and gradually phase out the blog in favour of the new format. It's very user friendly and enables tag and character searches and all manner of wondrous goodies that I have yet to bend my head around. The grant I received last summer from Artist's Project Earth will finally bear fruit.

Be of good cheer
