Post Schedule Updates:
I am going to be moving the “Companion” to Existential Terror and Breakfast from Thursdays to Fridays as I have been very busy with both school and work. The posting schedule overall will now look like this:
Mondays– New Mr. Square comics Wednesdays– New entry to the Existential Terror and Breakfast serial Fridays– New companion pieces.
Depth and Taxa:
With that said, today’s Mr. Square comic is nautical themed in honor of my friend Patrick Hutchins and his blog “Depth and Taxa“. Patrick has been involved in marine life and its sciences in Washington for many years now. His blog, Depth and Taxa, is a culmination of his knowledge and talent concentrated into an entertaining form. If you were ever curious about the sea (and the horrific eldritch abominations that live there) his blog is a must read. In particular his articles “Ghost Face Killer (Whales)” and “I Love It When You Call me Big Papa” are both hilarious and incredibly informative. You would be doing a disservice to yourself if you did not take the time to read his content. I cannot recommend it more.
His blog and its contents are ever more urgent for you to read as the defunding and closure of the EPA (a distinctly Republican program created by Nixon) looms. Though this may be a smart move if we want to preemptively destroy the dark (and clearly evil) denizens of the sea before they start the inevitable “Drowning of All Dry Mammals” campaign, it is also noticeably only a good idea if you are bat-shit-in the-latrine-insane. The education of our planet and the environments we have inherited is an important one. Patrick’s blog makes this endeavor both an entertaining and an easy one. Head over there as I promise it will be more fulfilling than whatever is happening on social media (unless of course you are sharing Depth and Taxa).
