On behalf of every heartbroken soul here at The Weekly Static, our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the tragedy at Stoneman Douglas High School, their families and the community.
Kinda crazy how it feels tonight, and kinda crazy how you make it all alright. You crush me with the things you do… and I do for you anything, too. Sitting, smoking, feeling… The Weekly Static!
While I’m sure Dave Matthews and the band are a little too busy touring to appreciate my respectful paraphrasing… because have I got a deal for you! If you order the Copper Cooker 9000 by the time this infomercial ends (and I can’t believe I’m about to do this) we’ll send you — free of charge except for postage-and-handling — your very own:
The Weekly Static is our righteously desperate-yet-endearing look at the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, cloud formations, and shadow puppets from an interesting, unique and entertaining perspective.

● Spotlight a news item that we missed when it first hit, but we’re pretty sure you’ll still find it interesting.
● Feed my voracious ego with copious amounts of praise, adulation, social media shares, pizza, Superman Funkos, Eisner Awards, write-in votes for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election (…it’s getting close…) and a “big box” from Pomme Frites — with five dipping sauces!
