Not since the days of Pacman has a game have such impact. Apparently downloads of the Pokemon Go app has surpassed even Twitter.

I’m on the fence in regards to this game. On one hand it’s fun. On the other hand, it’s definitely Orwellian. The last thing we need is a soul sucking app. Another perceptive is that it’s making people get up, and get out of the house, despite the blistering summer heat. It’s a very physical game. A form of low-fi exercising, if you care about that sort of thing. As you look on your screen for a Pokemon to catch, you discover little tiny details about your surroundings. For example, in my own neighborhood, I wasn’t even aware about some fake owl attached to a building on my block. That fake owl just happens to be a Pokemon stop.

Is it privacy invading? Of course it is. It’s like every other tool in life. It’s how you use it that makes the difference. I wouldn’t worry about this game too much. This trend will probably burn itself out. By next summer, we will have already moved on to the next trend. At least it wasn’t that stupid ice bucket challenge from two summers ago.

I was extremely cynical about Pokemon Go at first. Blending fantasy with reality had curiosity getting the best of me. Of course, now that I’m excelling at this game, half the time the servers are down.

This game comes out at a crucial time in American history. So why are we allowing ourselves to be distracted by cute little pocket monsters?

Better than sitting in misery, I suppose. Yes, there’s the TTIP, the U.S. Presidential race, and every other tragedy that’s been happening since Bowie died ten days into 2016. Actually, it really started when Lemmy died a few days before New Year’s Eve. That was definitely a sign of things to come, then Prince sealed the deal. (Alan Vega died most recently). Look. We knew the world sucked already. For those who sit in their cruddy apartments alone bickering about how “I don’t follow pop culture, I have better things to do…” In response there’s two words: Sturgeon’s Law. Politics and religion cannot bring people together, but perhaps this game will. It all depends on your perceptive.

This video represents Summer 2016. Video by Daquan Wiltshire. I can relate, especially people used to get on my case for watching vintage cartoons.

Why would one want to live in a world of constant misery, being haunted by ghosts of your past for example, and trying to bring down everyone around you. Personally, I appreciate the little whimsical things in life.

Enough of this haphazard editorial. Here’s the Psycho Bunny pic of the week.Of course, don’t forget to order any comics from my website, or from my RedBubble shop, or my two Facebook pages, one for Psycho Bunny, and one for WitchesBrewPress.

Till next time folks.

As seen on Sketch Lottery. Introducing my extremely quick sketch of the Fourth Doctor, also known as British actor Tom Baker.

TomBakerFourthDoctorCROP

Quick drawing of Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and his best known companion, Sarah Jane. Of course, daleks are never satisfied. Drawn by Michele Witchipoo, Nov. 2015 for Sketch Lottery. Pen and ink.

I have a particular fondness for the Fourth Doctor. Growing up during the early 1980s, I discovered Doctor Who by syndication. It was broadcast on a local NYC television station, WOR, which was channel nine on the dial. It’s Saturday early afternoon slot was right before wrestling.

For the hell of it, I’ll slap on this video:

For months watching Doctor Who became my weekend ritual, watching the Fourth Doctor and his companion Sarah Jane Smith on their various adventures. Not much was known back about Doctor Who. I didn’t know that Doctors regenerate, with companions that come and go. So when Sarah Jane left, I was heartbroken. Leela just wasn’t the same. Foolish, I know. Thus stories of Time Lords was eventually dropped along with those tacky wrestling matches that followed afterwards. Besides, music was taking over. It was the age of New Wave and ’80s Pop. Joan Jett, The Go-Go’s, and later Culture Club with Boy George captured my imagination. After all, I was only 13 years old.

Of course years later, Doctor Who finally broke out of PBS obscurity. If you follow pop culture, you probably know the rest. As they say, you never forget your first Doctor. While I’m fond of the Tenth Doctor, portrayed by David Tennant, my favorite still remains the Fourth, as defined by Tom Baker.

Anyway, check out my piece on Sketch Lottery, and of course, don’t forget to check out the other artists. I’ll leave you with another WOR station identification clip.

With the latest Star Wars installment coming up, I had to do a sketch of IG-88 for Sketch Lottery.

For those who don’t know who IG-88 is, he’s a minor character in the Star Wars universe. Originally a bounty hunter you see for about five seconds in Empire Strikes Back, he’s featured more in the Star Wars comics.

Check out my rendition of IG-88, and don’t forget to check out the other artists as well.

Guy Garnder does the online dating scene? Find out on Sketch Lottery. Sketch by Michele Witchipoo July 2014.

The latest sketch I contributed to the Sketch Lottery website. Green Lantern’s Guy Garnder does the online dating scene.

Having a profile on OKCupid was the first thing that came to mind when Guy Garnder was selected as this week’s character. Especially since he seems to have this ‘machismo’ quality about him.

You can look at my sketch here.
