City Hunter reference
Not sure if I need to watch Heirs to see this, but it is amusing
My buddy @CK1Blogs started blogging a year ago. A year ago today I was visiting my parents in Myrtle Beach for Thanksgiving and I was bored out of my mind, so I started reading Parade Magazine. I assume that Parade Magazine's entire readership is made up of adults hiding from their parents in bathrooms during trips home for major holidays. Anyway, Connie Schultz is the secret hero of @CK1Blogs: she wrote this editorial lamenting Clark Kent’s decision to quit The Daily Planet and worried aloud about his turn to the blogging life (according to Connie Schultz, “Social media is the new Kryptonite.”). The idea of Clark Kent blogging seemed goofy enough. I checked in with my pals over at @FakeAPStylebook (they’ve let me write dumb jokes from time to time for their various accounts), and they encouraged me to make Schultz’s “worst nightmare” a reality.
Anyway, I just want to thank everyone who has shown Clark some love over the past year (except Chris Sims [jk I don’t know why Clark hates you jk wait yes I do]). I’d like to give a special shout-out to my brother / roommate Brian “Cougar” McGrath, mainly because he’s spent the last year listening to me go “Guess what Clark wrote today?” on a daily basis and he has not moved out. The past year has been a weird one for me, and one of the highlights has been seeing people get behind this thing.
Anyway, most people have figured out that I’m Clark’s BFF, but if you haven’t yet, I’m Jim McGrath, and I live in Allston, MA (aka “Rock City”). It can be hard to figure out where Clark ends and Jim begins sometimes (for me and my worried friends and relatives). I have a few Twitter accounts, but the main one I use to tell dumb jokes and talk about comics is @poolhalljames if that’s what you’re into. You can also e-mail me at jimroks1[at]gmail[dot]com. I am happy to discuss the possibility of me writing you dumb jokes or comic books or Facebook status updates for love or money, so don’t be shy.
Some behind-the-scenes info about CK1 and I:
-We like a lot of the same things (Panera Bread, NEW GIRL!!!), but we don’t always agree on everything.
-You’d be surprised / horrified to learn how many of Clark’s blog posts are semi-autobiographical / straight-up ripped from the headlines of Jim McGrath’s life / cell phone.
-Know your history: @HOBODARKSEID was here first.
-Some People / Things I like that you might like if you like @CK1Blogs: The Best Show on WFMU, The Bugle, Travis Bickle On The Riviera, Kate Beaton, Ryan North, Julia Wertz, Achewood, A-list tweeters like Todd Barry and Julianne Smolinski, Steve Coogan, Hannibal Buress, The Eric Andre Show, Eagleheart, The Thick Of It, Steve Roggenbuck, Oulipo, Naoki Urasawa, Billy Joel.

Just like the character designs and the previous promo, the PV for the Space Dandy opening is like the lovechild of Cowboy Bebop and Redline. :3
