Today is Pickles and Bean/Waffles and Plum day.
It's been a while, but GHOULS IN THE HOUSE is back with the first new episode for 2023! This time, Natalie and I chat about meta-horror films THE CABIN IN THE WOODS (2011) and THE FINAL GIRLS (2015):
For those reading today's Pickles & Bean (Waffles & Plum), I really loved the idea of establishing that maybe there was a parallel strip running all the time that's like a mirror (note the visual reverse of the usual P&B setting in today's installment). Things will then join up again shortly...probably where you expect them to.
Today is Pickles and Bean day, which means that today is Waffles and Plum day.

Today is Pickles and Bean day, and Bean is the best wingdog you could have.
I wish they'd stop moving the camera CONSTANTLY, but since I have to apparently accept vertigo as part of watching modern television, I can say that even with that...
..episode 3 of PICARD S3 was fu***ng AWESOME!
Please share Pickles & Bean with anyone you think might enjoy it, and support it too if you wish. Thanks to everyone that has already been so supportive as P&B heads into its second year.
Help to launch the adventures of Pickles and Bean!

Pickles & Bean has been running for over a year now, and in that time a number of characters in addition to the two main stars have been introduced, as well as a couple short-run companion strips. Are there any of these characters or strips that you'd like to see return for another visit?

Today is Pickles and Bean day, and things are getting a bit wordy.
Totally forgot I had these, a pretty substantial stack of original 2004 DAWN OF THE DEAD promotional cards with that stunning poster artwork! Wondering if anyone is interested in these for whatever reason – maybe, if they're the right size (which I think they might be), I could throw them in with orders of my zombie tome, JOURNEY OF THE LIVING DEAD?
On the 89th birthday of Fourth Tom Baker, this bears repeating:
On this, Tom Baker's 85th birthday, our own Arnold T. Blumberg shares some thoughts:
"Every fan of a certain age probably has their own 'I met Tom' story. For me, meeting the man that defined the Doctor for generations of fans was inextricably linked with my first days as a publisher, way back in 2000.
The first edition of HOWE'S TRANSCENDENTAL TOYBOX - a then-comprehensive guide to Who merchandise - was a joint venture between me (ATB Publishing) and David Howe (Telos Publishing), and our official launch took place at The Stamp Centre in London on the actual anniversary date of the show, November 23. In addition to me and David and stacks of the TOYBOX book, there was artist Chris Achilleos, Caroline John, Sophie Aldred, Elisabeth Sladen, (Carole Ann Ford, I think?), and, of course, Tom.
It was years before either of us would be a Curator, and I was just amazed to be meeting the Doctor in a setting where we were all signing books and collectibles together like peers. I was scheduled to do a signing right alongside Tom, and when it was over, I showed him a copy of the TOYBOX. He flipped through it, stopping at various pages and laughing (I can’t recall if he looked at the Tom Baker underpants during one of those laughs, but I like to think he did). And then we took the picture you see here.
Years later, we featured very kind comments from Tom on the cover of the TOYBOX’s second edition: ‘It puts everyone in the know…Competent and understandable…very valuable.’ But the quote we did NOT use was the one I will never forget, the one he said to me on November 23, 2000, right after flipping through the first edition TOYBOX and right before we took our picture together. He looked at me with that big teeth-and-curls smile and said:
‘Look at all these wonderful things I’ve never been paid for!’
From one doctor and former curator to another - Happy birthday, Tom Baker!”
Today is Pickles & Bean day, and don't be too sure of advice you get in the dream world.
Forgot to post the latest strip yesterday, but now you can catch up!
Today is Pickles & Bean day, and there are many different ways to wake up.
I've been building up my Letterboxd account, writing reviews of movies I'm seeing for the first time, as well as posting past reviews for stuff I saw a long time ago. My two most recent additions are the crazy Mexican horror movies, CEMETERY OF TERROR (1985) and GRAVE ROBBERS (1989)!
I'm trying to consolidate my film commentary on that account, so if you're on there too, check it out and follow me there:
Today is Pickles & Bean day, and it's time. Everyone – meet Coop!

Today is Pickles & Bean day, and it's time to get in out of the cold.
The journey continues as Pickles & Bean kicks off Year 2!
Just in the Nick (heh heh) of time, Natalie and I take a look at a Xmas horror classic, BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974), as well as its two remakes from 2006 and 2019…and there’s even a bonus, in the form of an obscure and truly bizarre 1980 slasher, TO ALL A GOODNIGHT!
2023 will bring new books from ATB Publishing, new episodes of Ghouls in the House, new Pickles & Bean strips, and more. But for now, Happy New Year to everyone – I'll be watching A Day at the Races tonight and Twilight Zone tomorrow.
Today is NOT Pickles and Bean day, but that's only because we're taking a one-week break, with the strip kicking off Year 2 on Monday, January 2! And sometime in January, our friends will meet Coop! Who is Coop? Stay tuned!
Today is Pickles and Bean day, and sometimes you make a silly choice.
