I planned to put up a humorous rant today. Really I did. But everything currently irritating me has just been little crap not worthy of my righteous rage. Also I still haven't gotten the camera, and really my rants are much better in person cause then I can make funny faces, but that is neither here nor there. Today I have a Thursday "day job" that has me drive all over for about five hours. Normally this would provide me with ample ranting fodder because let's face it, people are annoying, all of them, everywhere, without exception, except of course for you dear reader. But today went well, bizarrely well in fact. There was no "A-ha I can spaz out about that" moment. If fact it went so well it makes me worry. So here we are, a rantless rant. So in closing yes I'm gonna go get a lottery ticket. Haw can I not, it's up to half a b-b-b-billion. End of rant....less.

Teenage (?) Ninja Turtles

It's more or less tomorrow so I am going to rant now. Now this is my first rant and it's going to be short as it's just a text entry. 
I would rather have this been a video rant but I'm not quite ready for that yet.  I saw on yahoo news that Michael Bay is going to do a reboot of the teenage mutant ninja turtles. I was going to link to the story, but now It's been replaced with a story about Michael Bay telling the fans they need to chill. Hmmmm ignoring the fans of the franchise, well since I can't link to the original story I'll just impart these word to Bay   
Any who the big problem with Michael bays Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is that they aren't going to be mutants are rather aliens.  What the hell, I mean seriously, how do you take out something so fundamental to the characters?
It's in their freaking name. Now ever since the star wars prequels came out people have used the phrase "they raped my childhood" a lot.  Do to it's overuse I hesitate to say that Bay is going to rape my childhood with this God awful change however I will say he has acquired a van and candy.
Now the transformer movies weren’t anything to write home about, but they at least transformed thus staying true to the title. 
Maybe Bay would like to get his hands on some other franchises like star wars, now on a boat. Or Batman, now a vampire, wait DC comics already did that. Oh I know. Jaws, now takes place just outside phoenix Arizona.  Either way the whole idea is just idiotic. Don't get me wrong, I grew up with the turtles, I know it's a silly premise but For God's sake have some respect for your source material.  To wrap up, Mr. Bay I'll simply pass on the wisdom of George Takei, That's all, end of rant.

Stuff, Stuff and more Stuff

So here we are 20 days later. I'm still working on inking Issues 4 of both Mushroom Murders, and Bullet Time. Got the preview copies of Mushroom Murders issue 1 in the mail and they look great for the most part. I had a couple of nitpics with the printing, but overall quite satisfying. I have been prepping my taxes to go to the accountant so that's a barrel of fun. I have been also considering doing some new Toyin' around strips for since I haven't done any strips for the site in forever. Finally I did a couple of xtranormal youtube videos many months ago. It was fun but not as much as I had hoped so I'm looking to get a handycam and make some proper videos at some point in the not too distant future. That is the state of things here. I have a rant brewing, but with no camera it will be a text rant. I'll get on that tomorrow. For now all I'll say is Michael Bay........TMNT.......WHY??????????

Opening Salvo

Welcome to Hedgehog Studios! I'm your host Jaconey. I’m not yet entirely sure what various brands of insanity I plan to post here. I will likely rant about things, promote my inking of comic books, and my very (and I do mean very) sporadic comic strips. Incidentally you can see those at Also the 2 published comic that I have under my belt as a professional inker are The Mushroom Murders issues 1 and 2. They are available for e-book purchase at drive-thru comics (  That’s it for now.  Further updates as they warrant!
