WELCOME!

I'm absolutely delighted that you're here!

 

Here you get to discover some of my written, drawn, and performed works -- plus get introduced to the people and things I care about. 

 

Some of this stuff is here simply to entertain and edify you but if you want to part with some $, there you are links to purchase Spencer-related books, art, wearables and consumables.  More of the commerce-related content will be coming on line later but there will always be lots of free fun experiences.

I'll be refreshing the content on a regular basis drawing on current projects and my creative archives.

So like I said:  Welcome.

Really.

The Worlds of the Ordinarily Fantastic (M, W. F) or the Fantastically Ordinary (T, Th, Sa).  Sundays everything is just plain weird.

NASA's Perseverance rover lands on Mars. One of three automated space probes to recently show up in the vicinity of the Red Planet.

All of this is extremely cool but I hope the Martians don't mind.

Silly Putty is first offered for sale in the United States on this date in 1950.

Speaking of Martians,am I the only one who thinks that stuff couldn't be made of any substance native to our home planet?

August

On this day in 1917, Jack Kirby  (Jacob Kurtzberg) was born.

My first favourite comic book artist and story-telling genius. From your lofty perch on New Genius I hope you know how grateful I am for the wonderful ways you feed my brain and warped my imagination.

January

First broadcast of the television adaptation of Usula K. LeGuin's novel The Lathe of Heaven in 1980.

A truly brilliant story and to this day, I always check the nature or reality after a night of vivid dreaming.
