The Tacoma 44

|Hey, this drawing is a lot of fun! Thanks RR
If it's any consolation, our gas furnace isn't doing much better.
by Erik on 12/8/2009 @ 1:55am
|Excellent work RR.
Also, this week's Tacomic is a handy guide for the city council and citizens when considering each candidate.
by KevinFreitas on 12/8/2009 @ 7:14am
|Hahaha, great work RR!|
by Erik on 12/8/2009 @ 8:18am
|One could also use this Tacomic to cross off candidates as they are eliminated from the appointment process.|

|@erik lets do it!
get your red MS Paint brushes ready!

For the record: I do have streetcars runing through my brain.
RR: Why are you the only one with glowy light effects?
by NEAL on 12/8/2009 @ 9:36am
|Fine work, Mr. RR.
One thought: candidate BINGO/extreme tic-tac-toe.
by Erik on 12/8/2009 @ 9:40am
|get your red MS Paint brushes ready!
Sort of like the last few minutes of the survivor type games when a contestant is eliminated.
by NineInchNachos on 12/8/2009 @ 10:18am
|damn the bingo idea is bloody brilliant|
by NineInchNachos on 12/8/2009 @ 10:19am
|download the web version, circle your choices in lime green, post your bingo card in the comment section. winners will get a special prize!|
by Nick on 12/8/2009 @ 10:56am
|... also, did I spy a trilobite in one of those portraits? if so then one word, AWESOME!|
by morgan on 12/8/2009 @ 11:26am
|Wow, RR - I just read your text. Brrr!! You are so dedicated! Your suffering will not go unnoticed.
by NineInchNachos on 12/8/2009 @ 12:13pm
|"I've suffered for my art, now it's your turn! ha ha ha"|

|Don't know where you got the model for Julio Quan, RR, but it is spot on. Brilliant work, I suspect it is pre sold several times over. Perhaps time for an auction model?|
by Altered Chords on 12/9/2009 @ 12:15pm
|You have inspired me to forget the "accent wall" idea for my house and paint a giant trillobite on the wall.
Finally - trillobites are cool again!
I'm thinking t-shirt idea. Tacoma Trillobites! This inspires a poem.
Very, very old
A taiku poem by altered chords
by NineInchNachos on 12/9/2009 @ 12:36pm
|my people are talking to Ms. Lacy-Davis to broker the sale of this cartoon.
The Tacoma Trilobites would make a good nerdy team name for the new SAMI school at Point Defiance... Chess Club?
by NineInchNachos on 12/9/2009 @ 12:45pm
Tune in to TV TACOMA, 12:10 pm on DECEMBER 15th to see your friendly neighborhood political cartoonist presenting a stump speech IN THREE MINUTES TOTAL!
perhaps I can recite my favorite AC'd poem:
R. R. draws with chalk.
Friday lunchtime at Frost Park.
Unless itís raining.
by Altered Chords on 12/9/2009 @ 1:05pm
|I remember those old haiku days. Before the Taiku was invented.
Yes, those were good times
way back then.
by NineInchNachos on 12/9/2009 @ 1:25pm
|can you get me something in a Taiku format? something snappy... something with POW!|
by Altered Chords on 12/9/2009 @ 1:30pm
Must sleep on this one.
Brain dead now.
My partner in rhyme
Where are you?
by Erik on 12/9/2009 @ 4:46pm
|Does everyone get a three minute speech or only the ones invited to do so?|
by NineInchNachos on 12/9/2009 @ 6:10pm
|everyone in alphabetical order|
by Jesse on 12/9/2009 @ 8:09pm
|My furnace is now busted too. Go figure.|
by NineInchNachos on 12/9/2009 @ 9:46pm
|we should have the new electric furnace by next Tuesday. We went with Narrows Heating www.narrowsheating.com/|
by Altered Chords on 12/10/2009 @ 8:10am
Anderson I am
I am GREAT
There - If that doesn't do it - don't blame me. If it does do it, I expect a phoney baloney appointment to some do-nothing position within your fiefdom.
by NineInchNachos on 12/10/2009 @ 5:48pm
|Thanks Mr. Cords.
I believe your poem was the clincher that sold this "spirit portrait" cartoon.
by NineInchNachos on 12/10/2009 @ 5:56pm
|meanwhile: alt press publisher John Hathaway is the first person to take advantage of the Tacomic's creative commons license.
keep up your remixes sir!
by L.S.Erhardt on 12/11/2009 @ 7:51am
|@ AC: Where was I?|
for your car
Hmmm... a Taiku for RR. Hmmm....
the venn diagrams
a plan, a canal
They don't have holes.
The high life!
by L.S.Erhardt on 12/11/2009 @ 7:56am
|You know, I really like the Tacoma Trilobites. It's nerdy, it's cheesy, it's 400 million years old. What is there not to like?
Forget the Goddess of Commerce. I want a 25' long bronze trilobite in Tolfeson.
by Altered Chords on 12/11/2009 @ 8:25am
|Tacoma Trillobites first debate topic.
3.14 looks like P I E backwards. While not a palindrome, what should it be called?

Subject: shitty council
here are some thoughts i posted a while back.
Dear newly elected City Council.
1. We need prettier buses that smell of french fries on the inside.
2. Where is Carson's camera?
3. Please paint all Police vehicles Pistachio green and allow the officers to act as Cab drivers when not arresting people.
4. Somehow get Tacoma in the Guiness Book of World Records. Maybe by eating a lot of something
by fredo on 12/13/2009 @ 11:17am
|I think we're in Guiness...look under "youngest person ever decapitated at a monster truck show"|

by Erik on 1/6/2010 @ 3:14pm
Can you produce an updated version of the Tacomic with the people who didn't make it with an X over them reality TV style?
by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 1/6/2010 @ 5:58pm
|I'm thinking Ryan Mello and one of the female candidates. I'll embellish this no further.|
by morgan on 1/6/2010 @ 9:01pm
|I like Ryan and David.|
by Dave_L on 1/6/2010 @ 10:06pm
|...with an X over them reality TV style?|
Ha. Or Some Girls album cover-style.
Or reduced to Brady Bunch-style.
Or Hollywood Squares-style. Boe to block.
