June 15, 2019: Imagine #49 Raises Its Pride Flag!
Posted by Comicality
Howdy, Shackers! I hope life on your side of the screen is full of blowjobs and candy! Hehehe!
My laptop is running extremely slow today as it's updating stuff that I probably don't care about, but have to struggle through, regardless. Grrrr! So I'll keep this relatively short!
A brand new issue of the Shack's official online magazine, Imagine, is live! So head on over there and check it out when you get a chance! New chapters from Beldro Mercier, Lindon Weztser, and The Story Lover! "The Bully And The Bullied" returns by Sean E. A new "Brandon Smiling" from MrM. And something new from Ruwen Rouhs called, "The Rainboy's Family". And a few Daydream Short stories from me, as well as some new articles and music for your enjoyment!
Next month will be Imagine's *50th* issue!!! Can you believe it? Wow! Hehehe, we'll be sure to celebrate with something special! So drop in and have fun!
Also, our youngest author, Juju, is a little under the weather at the moment. So if you have any positive vibes to toss out there into the ether for him to get better, please put them out there. We love you, Juju. Get well, soon, bud. ((Hugz))
Also...we are just a few DAYS away from the Shack Out Back's 21st anniversary online! June 19th marks that one late night when I sat down and used a WebTV keyboard to write the very first chapter of "New Kid In School"! And that, eventually, led to the madness and chaos that you're seeing today! LOL! But you know what? Despite a rough ride...through all of the technical problems and the criticism and the hatred and the attacks and the in-house conflicts and the emotional stress and the heartbreaks and the outside attacks that we've suffered over the years...we're still here. We're still standing strong. And we're doing better than ever! I won't say that times haven't been hard, but I CAN say that, after a journey like the one we've been through as an online family and community, I'm confident that we can get through anything. And that brings me comfort. And peace of mind.
So THANK YOU for 21 years of love and support! For always helping me get back up when I fell from grace. And for being a part of something that I believe is doing some real good for the people who just want a place to call home. I appreciate you all, and I hope you'll join the rest of the family this Wednesday to begin our week long celebration for another successful year online!
New additions have been made to the ComicalityShack YouTube channel! So be sure to check that out as well!
A brand new "Comsie Q & A" question is up today! I'll be putting up new community questions on the 1st and 15th of every month, and I'd REALLY like to hear what you guys have to say on each topic! We're looking for a variety of opinions, and we want to hear your thoughts. So don't be shy! Click that 'Reply' button and put your two cents in for a future issue of the magazine! This new question is about public displays of affection! I've added my own personal thoughts this morning, so what are yours? Let us know! The question is on the Shack
(https://www.voy.com/15900/), The Library (https://www.voy.com/17262/), the Imagine 'Inner Visions' board (https://www.voy.com/247962/), and on the Comicality Café (https://gayauthors.org/forums/forum/3-comicality-cafe/)! So, whichever forum you frequent the most...the question will be there
for ya! Hehehe, They're all different! See? I told you that I talk too much! ::Giggles:: So go see them all! And look for a new Jukebox Jimmy challenge to go up today too!
Ok, so what happened to me keeping this short? LOL! I'm leaving! Go read Imagine Magazine, and be sure to come back on Wednesday the 19th for the Shack's 21st anniversary online! Cool? Seezya soon! I love you all! And thanks for being awesome!

May 28, 2019: 12th Annual - Random Cake Holiday!!!
Posted by JeffsFort
There are some traditions that were started as a laugh that we refuse to let die. This is one started by our favorite role model and yes, The Fort Family celebrates it to this day...

*Random Cake Holiday* Emailed By Comicality!
That's right! I said 'Random Cake Holiday'! Hehehe! Don't ask any questions, don't worry about the rhyme or reason WHY you should do it...just DO IT! We had a conversation in the chat tonight, and this lack of cake is just unforgivable. So today, I want each and every single person reading this, to go out somewhere and find yourself a piece of cake to eat! I don't care HOW you get it, or WHAT kind of cake it is! But there are just way too many people who have gone TOO long without having a piece of cake!
You can laugh all you want! Feel silly doing it! I don't care! Whatever! Just go out, find some cake, and enjoy it for the simple fact that you CAN! And I'm not talking about some moldy old store bought sliver of cake that you can buy for a quarter at the counter of your local gas station! I mean actual *CAKE*! Go to a bakery, go to a neighbor's house, hit up the old lady that does volunteer work at the resource center in your area, bake your own and give half of it away to someone else who doesn't have cake, play your Cake cd on your car radio..whatever...but don't you DARE let the sun set without getting a taste of that sweet sweet cake goodness! C'mon...don't you want some CAKE??? I do!
The only time we get to have cake is at weddings, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, and bachelor parties. And that's just wrong! So if you needed a reason to eat cake, then here it is. It's cake day. GO! Get some! Enjoy it! Do it for the simple fact that you have absolutely NO reason to do it other than I told you so! Hehehe! Savor it!
That's right....I'm going to get mine as soon as I get up tomorrow! Believe me! Mmmm cake...
Spread the word!
May 27, 2019: Good morning! And Happy Memorial Day! :D
Posted by Comicality
I want to start off by apologizing for vanishing on you guys for the past five or six days! Memorial Day kinda crept on me, and I found myself with a work schedule that was like...WTF??? WHY??? Between that, and family, and kids getting out of school (I always try to do my babysitting part for my cousins and stuff), I didn't have much time to don the 'Dark Knight' mask of Comicality this week! But, after work today, I'm back in full swing again! That includes the newest story post, "Picture Me And You", chapter 8! It's up on the site right NOW if you guys want to read it! So, enjoy, and take a moment to let me know what you think! K? I know that it's been a while since the last chapter, but I ALWAYS come back! Always!
I am finishing up with my contributions for the June issue of Imagine Magazine at the moment! As well as everything else that's in the works! More stories coming! More GFD vampire goodies being edited! More writing tips on GayAuthors for the weekends! More visits to the new Discord chatrooms! More emails! What can I say? I'm an overachiever sometimes! Hehehe! But ONLY sometimes!
Drop by Imagine Magazine when you guys get a chance! This last issue is doing GREAT! And I know June will do even better! The Shack Out Back website will be celebrating it's 22nd anniversary online on June 19th! And Imagine Magazine will be celebrating it's 50th issue in July! so don't miss that one either! Everything that I've been able to accomplish since I first started writing online has been a product of YOU guys watching and waiting, supporting and sending in feedback and comments! So this will be more YOUR celebration than it is mine! Thank you all for speaking up and just...making me smile every now and then! For being a valuable part of the Shack family! For coming to laugh with us in the chatroom! And just for sticking with me, thick and thin, and making yourselves known...even when I vanish on you for long periods of time. Hehehe! I see you, and I appreciate you being a real friend. I love you all! You know I do...because I'll come here and TELL you so!
Take care! And I'll seezya soon!

I had to update my laptop today, and that took a LONG time!!! LOL! I started last night and actually fell asleep waiting for things to get back in working order! BUT...I think everything is finished! SO, back to work!
