Answers and questions for curious people.

Most recent bunch of archives updates, done on, what
is it, May 24? Yeah, that's it
April 12 -- Finally not-p, where p = winter For all you readers in parts of the world who only experience
a scrap of the phenomenon we call winter (that's you people in California
I'm talking to), you can't really appreciate how freeing, how liberating
it is for those of us in Edmonton to finally get a nice day. Ohhhhhh, man.
Anyway, here's a cartoon:
What about ZED? Zed, of course, is
(or was) this magazine show on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and
they did a piece
on me. Why have I highlighted the words "piece on me" in the previous
sentence? Because if you click on the highlighted words, you'll be taken
on fairy wings directly to the Zed segment about Stephen Notley, me, in
Quicktime format. It's a little embarassing (especially the gratuitous
foot-picking), but there it is, for curious folks.
Server troubles redux
As some of you may have noticed, the server's been a
little wonky these last few weeks. In fact, some of you may find that this
page doesn't show up at all, no matter how many times you click "refresh"
on your browser. Like, for instance, my Netscape keeps displaying the March
15 update no matter how many times or how forcefully I hit "refresh" (though
if I type "/index.html" after "www.angryflower.com", that seems to fix
it). Anyway, all I can say is, thanks for your patience, and those days
should be receding into the past with no threat of them popping up in the
future. Angryflower.com is generously hosted by Lore Sjoberg of the hyperfunny
Shuttlecocks web site, and Lore just moved back to Oakland and switched
computers and et cetera and et cetera.
Omigod, Spiderman is out in less than a month! Omigod
AND AND... new e-mail
My ISP is fiddling with their mailboxes, so my e-mail
address is no longer firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now it's email@example.com.
Stephenn@v-wave should still work for a while, but eventually it won't.
All the e-mail links on this page have been changed, though some random
ones scattered around the site might not have been (okay, haven't been).
I recommend, if you have my e-mail address somewhere, that you update it.
April 5 -- Unbelievably, still winter I'd gotten used to the crappy spring weather, the ugly
brown mud, the dusty leafless trees... and then it had to go and snow again.
And get cold again! This is freakin' RIDICULOUS!
Anyway, got a new cartoon, this week, called
So what about ZED?
From what I've been told, it's on tonight, Friday, April
5, at 11:25 pm. It's a national show, so there shouldn't have to be any
time zone adjustments, but check yer local listings. Will it be terrible?
Will I regret having appeared on television, only to humiliate myself?
Time, as always, will barf up the answers.
March 29 - The Road of Trials Well, some of you may have noticed angryflower.com was
unavailable in the earlier part of the week. It's back now, but for how
long? Nobody knows. I don't know. My task is to do what I can with
the time I am given, as Gandalf once said, so it's in that spirit that
I give you
What about this Zed
After some fiddling, the word appears to be that it'll
be on next Friday, April 5, 11:25 pm. What Zed thing am I talking about?
Zed is some wack new show on CBC (Canada's national network). They profile
short films and various Canadian talent, all in the name of culture. And
they did a interview with me, and next Friday is when it airs. So I've
March 22 -- Site's still a little wobbly Yes, broken links abound, my children. I'm trying to
go through them, get stuff up and functional, but it's tough, strange work.
For some reason all the files with the ".htm" extension don't work any
more, so it's been a long, slow process of adding "l"s to ".htm"s. Anyway,
here's a cartoon, about Golf Cops.
Me and Bob on CBC next week! Yep, CBC (that's the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation,
for you non-Canadians out there) came by and did an interview of me last
week for this new A&E show Zed,
on at 11:25 pm every weeknight. I'm supposed to be up next week (March
25-29), but I don't yet know which day. You can check their site for details,
or keep checking back here; the moment I know I'll throw in an update.
Here's yer chance to see me and Bob on TV, and who could give up a chance
like that? Who?
- mini-update Thursday. March 28-
Well, we'll see about all this. The gal who did the interview
says it probably won't be on until next week, and something in her voice
told me it might not be on at all. More details to come as they are known
March 15 update -- Sorry about the delay Site's been kinda up and down for the last day or so,
what with the server burping and farting and bleeping and you get the idea.
There might be some glitches here and there, but it should work. Anyway,
So, who wants a great new T-shirt displaying Marvel comics'
awesome lineup of Native American superheroes? You? Then click below for
March 8 update -- Man, it is cold out! Yep, it's been incredibly freezing for a week or more,
here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. And what happens in this part of the
world when it's really cold out? Same thing as happens all the other times:
lots of drinking. What time is it? 4:37 am? Yikes! Let's post this new
cartoon and go to bed. Here it is:
Anything else? Well, of course, you can always, always buy
March 1 update -- Whew! Man, what a cold, crappy, excellent February that was.
Thank Jesus it's in the past, receding away from us at the rate of one
second per second. Okay, on to other things. Specifically, this week's
cartoon. I don't like to do the topical stuff, and this is hardly topical
any more, but you'll all have to forgive me if I go ahead and indulge in
some patriotic pride as
And... Don't forget to buy books,
kids. It's just about the only way to get them!
February 22 -- Washington's Birthday! Yep, it's Washington's birthday here at Angry Flower
central, and if we don't all know what that means, we soon will, because

February 15, 2002 Post Valentine's Day I hope y'all had a fruitful Valentine's Day, with lots
of love to keep y'going. Here's my love, in the form of a cartoon, a sweet
little nothing that asks (and answers) the question: What if terrorists
And, held over because it was good, and because I got
a link on Fark.com (where they raved
"Lord of the Rings remake -- shorter, slicker, less bull"), please read
again this parody cartoon:
APE afterchat Well, after all the fooferall last week, I did eventually
end up going down a day late, minus all my books except for 12, in which
I had to write "Not for sale" so the Immigration people would let me through.
Sold 'em all, of course, but it wasn't exactly the Bobsplosion I was looking
for. Still, many thanks go out to Keith
Knight, on whose living room floor I slept. And, I apologize to all
those folks who came by on Saturday to find me not there, and who then
returned home to check the web site and found out why, and who now find
that I was there after all, just on Sunday rather than Saturday. So, uh,
Don't yet know the whole San Diego/SPX situation. I should
get some kind of table at San Diego, but SPX is sold out. I hope to get
on the waiting list, but only time will bring the answer to whether that's
going to fly or not. Stay tuned to this space for more details. Oh, and
Oh, right, just that I returned home from San Fran to
find that Futurama has apparently been freakin' cancelled! That licks it!
Further information is available at gotfuturama.com,
check out the sad and maybe sliver-hopeful situation there, if you care.
And, I got panties in the mail! Woooo!
February 8, 2002 All right, folks. I've been obsessing about it, I've
been talking about it, it's been crawling here and there into the strip
for the last couple of weeks, let's just get down to it. Here's Bob's
APE UPDATE, 5 pm Friday --ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! What the hell? Why am I here updating my web page instead
of arriving in San Francisco to participate in the Alternative
Press Expo? Chalk it up to the U.S. Immigration Services' tireless
efforts to ensure no Canadian products take jobs away from helpless Americans.
Or something. Yes, I foolishly told them the truth, that I was going to
a convention to sell books, and they wouldn't let me do it without a preposterously
unavailable work permit. Never mind I've done it before, never mind there
are many other Canadian cartoonists selling their stuff there without a
work permit, never mind any of it.
After all that goddamn work I did to get that freakin'
California Seller's Permit, it just wasn't enough. So, I dumped the books
in a locker at the airport, figuring I'd just go anyway and just hand out
leaflets, but --wa-hey!-- all that time sitting around in the Immigration
office watching the lone officer putter around not attending to my problem
took its toll, and I missed my flight. A couple of hours later I went back
to the airport to catch another flight, only to find that it was delayed,
and thus I couldn't make my connecting flight to San Fran. And that was
I look back at my childish enthusiasm, my confidence that
I had dealt with every hurdle I would face, and I shake my head. What was
I thinking? How could I have thought that doing it all the "right" way
would work? I must have been on crack, but I don't remember doing any and
neither do my friends.
So all you San Franciscans, I apologize. Man, this bites
it. Rest assured I'll do whatever lying to Customs is necessary to attend
San Diego Comic-Con and SPX later this year.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have an angry cartoon to mull
But still, on the happy side of life... I trust everybody is familiar with www.brunching.com,
and its funny, funny, funny main man, L. Fitzgerald Sjoberg. So funny is
he, indeed, that he's written a book, The Ratings, and he even went
so far as to get me to draw all the illustrations for it. Now it looks
like the book is finally going forward, so I just thought I'd let y'all
know it exists (or will exist), and that it's got (or will have) lots of
funny pictures by me (not to mention thousands of hilarious words by him).
Click here for about the
same amount of information, and then start browsing through the rest of
the Brunching site, and laugh.
Holy God, it's FEBRUARY FIRST!!!! Freddie fans, perhaps you'll be entertained. Everyone
else, prepare to be underwhelmed by what transpires when Bob responds to
APE! What is APE?
Why, it's the Alternative Press Expo, held this coming weekend in rainy
San Francisco! Where? At the Herbst Pavillion at Fort Mason Center! When?
Feb 9 and 10th, Saturday and Sunday! Click on this APE
link to find out more. I'll be there, having cleared the last forseen bureucratic
impediment, bearing a shiny California Temporary State Seller's Permit,
hawking books like an insane madman. Of course,
you can also buy books easily and quickly and
reliably over the Internet by buying them on my book
page. I personally guarantee all purchases.

of thing, I don't know. It's called

Feb 8-11, selling books like crazy, assuming
the California State Board of Equalization gets back to me with a permit
number. And why wouldn't they? They've got two weeks. Lots of time.

January 11 update Man... late again. Sorry, folks, the page just completely
slipped my mind until a few minutes ago. But now it's got my mind, controlling
it, making me update. Here's a cartoon.
C'mon, you people, just because it's not Christmas anymore
is no reason to stop buying books. Y'know how
many boxes of these things I still gotta get rid of? Lots, that's how many.
So remember, buy buy buy.
January 4 2002 update Take a dream, and make it real... do anything you waaant...
you can be a moonbeam or a sta -a -arr, so come on... LET'S GO!
Today, we're going to talk about IMAGINATION! Specifically,
the kind that deserts you when you have to come up with a cartoon, forcing
you to dart over to the nearest cheap Chinese greasy chopstick and return
On a related matter...
It's time to start thinking about conventions and touring
and all the wonderful going to different places that being an up-n'-coming
cartoonist entails. With that in mind, I now inform you all that I'll be
at APE this
year. What's APE? Why, it's the Alternative
Press Expo in San Francisco, this very February 9th and 10th!
