All The World Is A Zoo: THE ZOO ACT debuts!

Ladies & Gentelmen, as the host of orbiting blogspot known as PLANET GRIFFIN, yours truly, THE INFAMOUS RODBUDDAH, is proud to inform the public of a new Original Graphic Novel that has just emerged on the digital ebook market known as THE ZOO ACT, a new crime noir thriller written and illustrated by NEXT 100 Creator MYRON MACKLIN!  

Early reviews have already likened the work to early FRANK MILLER, and it shows, but this writer also notices the heavy design influences of SAUL BASS (trust me, the man designed most of commercial America) and European flourishes... The arguments of style and substance are easily settled in this book, making it a true sleeper hit of the summer!  Hit the link and experience THE ZOO ACT! Tell'em THE INFAMOUS RODBUDDAH sent you!

The Beginnings Of A Mad Summer


Back in orbit ONCE AGAIN (And it sure feels good to be back to you), the pirate blogspot known as PLANET GRIFFIN returns to let you know that the wait is almost over! After months on end, the recording sessions have hit a stride and I can finally ease into a pace that allows me to breathe!

THE MIDNIGHT SHOW, sponsored by a group known as '... The Home Of Non-Sequiter Vision...' THE ESTATE OF INK WESTLAKE, TMS has become quite the audio experience as of late--- it has to be called an experience because it's a different kind of podcast... Much in the same vein as golden age radio of the 30's, 40's, & 50's, but with a HUGE TWIST on the senses!  Once you hear the actual show, you'll easily being to understand what it is... Explaining it to others, on the other hand, may take your own slight-of-hand wordplay to do, but it will also be the MOST FUN you'll have explaining the aural twists and turns the show will make!

Get ready for THE MAD SUMMER--- JUNE 2014! The INFAMOUS RODBUDDAH will be waiting!

BACK!!! Back once again to bring you, dear blog readers, into the orbit of the ever elusive PLANET GRIFFIN! As your absent host, THE INFAMOUS
RODBUDDAH, I can NOW, at long last, open my 
mouth fully about WHY I have been so absent and WHY I have spoken so roundabout on this topic for months on end...

PLANET GRIFFIN, in cooperation with INK WESTLAKE, has been producing a new podcast show.

Yes, the man who's been ranting and raving on this 
very page will have an actual voice, and soon you too can say to yourself, "This guy?!" LOL!

I am very excited and proud to introduce, for the first time, the coming of THE MIDNIGHT SHOW
Now, of course, some people say 
"Is it a music show?" or 
"Is it an interview show like CHARLIE ROSE?"
I promise you that THE MIDNIGHT SHOW will be like nothing you've heard on a podcast show. Period.
This is one of several produced teaser trailers for the new madness debuting in 2014. As the trailers continue, more information will appear informing you of where the new episodes will appear... Much like a rave that everybody asks for the location for... When the final PREVIEW APOCALYPSE NOW debuts, you will have ALL the information needed to partycrash the new show... And for all the love you have shown PLANET GRIFFIN over the years in site traffic and emails, YOU ARE ALL INDEED WELCOME!

2014 will BE the new insanity, and (strait)jackets will be available at the door. I look forward to all who attend when the new show appears.

PLANET GRIFFIN, that pirate blogspot stepchild many of you have come to love, is now proud to announce the OFFICIAL coming soon advert of my long awaited book, FIERCE CREATURES, a title that seemed to have endured more mishaps during its production than TERRY GILLIAM'S MAN OF LA MANCHA... And even THAT received a documentary...

WWW.INKWESTLAKE.COM/FC is where you'll find the current sign-up. It will not read like the above pic, as this pic description was done for dramatic effect... All who sign up will receive the advance word on final sales date and other surprise goodies in store.

Lions, Tigers, & Bears; Oh My

Good Morning Housekeeping!
Yours truly, the INFAMOUS RODBUDDAH, has been deep in the bowels of PLANET GRIFFIN LABS, working on a number of projects for the last couple of months. A tidbit of that work is shown here, for those who are interested in comics... FIERCE CREATURES, my self created crime/ sci-fi fantasy series; once self jokingly referred to as 'the longest running coming soon of all time' (not actually true, considering that most of America is resigned to the fact that Dr. Dre's TOXIC CD will never be released...)... At long last, the wait on this project is almost over.

Stay tuned to the orbiting pirate blogspot for the details of the upcoming book and where to find it!!!!

The Story So Far: Prepping A Better Shovel

Ladies and Gentlemen, Good Evening.
PLANET GRIFFIN's back... And the hits just keep on coming... For those of you tuning in, yours truly, THE INFAMOUS RODBUDDAH, has been on the road a bit... Bouncing back and forth between two coasts, carrying the banner of my various designworks... I've been jetlagged and hashtagged, caught between connecting flights and long nights, and the parties only just beginning!

Stay tuned to the site (Thank you Diehards, who've kept the faith while I've been setting up franchises like Tyler Durden and Fight Club) for more details and the NEW DIRT to follow!

A Moment From The Management

After a brief intermission, and a moment of MANternity leave, the mighty orbiting blogcast known as PLANET GRIFFIN has returned to post pardem stardom! Thank you for hanging in there as yours truly, THE INFAMOUS RODBUDDAH, dealt with major reconstruction of many things... Life, living quarter, and the long run... Yes, I have encountered all these issues and then some; no different than any of you, floating around this self aggrandizing beast known as Pop Culture...

I'm taking a moment to say to those who have regularly checked here for the latest in whatever I bring to this site the biggest thank you I can muster. From the bottom of my heart, I say thank you... Thank you for your patience, your willingness to hang in there, and your patronage. PLANET GRIFFIN would not be where it is without you.

With these things said, I resume coverage of the blogosphere, and to let you know that PLANET GRIFFIN will soon transform into something else--- something I'm highly excited to introduce in the very near future.
In this world of heard it all/seen it all; I look forward to your future reactions and thoughts... Because as a creator, when I want to see something new--- I have to make it myself.

To all creators out there, NEXT 100 or no, I urge you to hold to that mantra. Now lets go get it!
