LET’S LYNCH THE BITSTRIPS. Hey, Lattaphiles! Wanna free avatard and help spread what should be the gospel that bitstrips are worse than Hitler? Then I got a contest for you! Take a screenshot of you telling off one of your bitstripping buddies that the should get Josh Latta to draw a cartoon likeness instead and take a screenshot & post it here on the Lattaland facebook page. I will pick 5 (five) names out of a stupid pumpkin on Halloween and draw all 5 (five) of the winners a free basic avatard. The more you do it, the more chances you have to win. Together we can smash this unsettling trend.
I don’t know about all y’all, but I’m trick-or-treating, going to bonfires, costume parties, visiting “haunted houses” and carving jack-o-lanterns tonite.
I bet you didn’t expect a fright like that 15 days and 9 hours before Halloween, did you?
Join Adam & Erin during the spookiest time of the month in the midst of the spookiest time of the year on a little satanic show called 9sense.
On this chilling episode, our ghosts, err, hosts discuss mysterious misanthropia, spine-chilling serial killers and boo-bathing. It will scare the hell out of you.
Stick around for a little Down to the Crossroads too. This months theme is jinxes and how Erin hates jinxes to pieces. The playlist is available here, if the show is just too darn terrifying for your God-fearing ear-holes.
Happy Halloween…and SATAN!

I know every day is a gift, but where’s the receipt for Mondays? I want to exchange it for another Photoshop Phriday.
With candy corns and silver bullets aglow.
This month Erik Karl Son tackles Nick Tosches’ Hellfire. Its a bold tale of Jerry Lee Lewis and never pulls a punch.
When he noticed that Erin from Down to the Crossroads was reading the same book, he knew he had to get her to help host this episode.
If you don’t know DttC, its best described as, “A monthly segment on the 9sense podcast. Down to the Crossroads, where Faustian bargains are made, spirits are consumed, blues are discussed, and the Devil gets his due.”
Rashy Rabbit is a weed smokin’, rump humpin’, raunchy rabbit who proves how a work can showcase its influences without getting mired in mimicry. Latta creates a book which, upon first inspection, looks like an old Scholastic reader: The anthropomorphic character on the cover, the high-gloss cardboard stock, and the color scheme all seem like a comic I read in the fourth grade…except written by John Waters or R. Crumb. The interior panels showcase the same integrity and detail as Sergio Aragones’ Groo and the content is laugh out loud funny. Both stories in this volume have a sense of charm that make it easy to forgive Rashy for causing so much crap.
We, here, in the magical land of Latta, want to remind you to never forget. Wait, how could you forget? You have to take off our smelly shoes in the airport, You have cameras on every corner and toilet seat, and, of course, a wacky war that is gonna rage on for 100 years. It’s a little hard to forget 9/11. Bald Eagles are STILL boo-hooing when they see the flag.
Anyway, from your friends in Lattaland, have a happ-happy 9/11 and a merry New Year.
Don’t put another dime in that jukebox, baby.
Thank God it’s Phriday, right? Tell me I’m right.
Ghoul afternoon, true bedevilers! That’s right, I said ‘afternoon’. Evil doesn’t wait for night to podcast. Mwahahaha! Sorry, I always get like this after my morning Zero Bar®.
This week, Warlock Adam P Campbell and Witchy Erin Cassavaugh wax wrathfully about the inhuman, injurious Israel, tormented, trangendered teens and infamous ills that flesh is heir to instrumentals.
Oh, and SATAN, SATAN SATAN!!!
11 August, XLVIII A.S.
Thursday I don’t care about you.
I wish everyday was like Photoshop Phriday.
Accursed morning, my diabolical fiends! It’s that evil time of the month again. Grab some coffee, or whatever other satanic beverage you can find, and give the new episode of 9sense a listen.
In the latest episode, the abominable Adam P. Campbell and the egregious Erin flap their rotten gums about the Zimmerman case. Yeah, I’ve never heard of the guy either, but apparently he killed a baby boy in a stroller or something. Also, the damnamic duo discuss deplorable filibuster showdowns. What’s that gotta do with the devil? Give it a listen, cloven hoofed ones.
Stick around to the shocking end of the episode, wayward ones, for the 13th episode of ‘Down to the Crossroads’ for the best in blues brought to you by the devil’s daughter, Erin.
What are you waiting for, Walpurgisnacht? Listen right now, and SATAN!
