  1. Yes Conor now I have “Cerritos. Auto. Square.” radio spot jingle lodged in my brain on a Rain Man repeat. Thanks to my aged addled brain it’s slowly morphing into an O’Reilly Auto Parts- Cerritos Auto Square mash up. At least you didn’t start me on a Keeys on Van Nuys loop because those have broken lesser men.

    HaHa story seems in the “Cotton Candy Autopsy” arena from “Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children” of the DC/Piranha Press comics from my youth. An Ur dark clown story for interested parties. Issues #1 & #13. c.1989.

    will it ever rain?

  2. King in Black seems like Blackest Night but swap Black Lantern Rings with Symbiotes?
