Month: December 2016
2017—Full Speed Ahead!
In addition to the exciting books we have planned for the new year, we’re also designing a new web site which we hope to launch in the spring. This blog has served us well since the summer of 2012, but who knew our list would grow so large it requires ten minutes to scroll through. Thus, we need the power of a web site to make browsing easier and pleasurable.
Our successful fundraising campaign allowed us to perform last rites on our dilapidated Windows system and the outdated software we were struggling with. So Scat is totally a Mac shop now. Forgive the expression, but our workflow has become almost efficient, and the thousands of files in our archive have been ported over safely and backed up on the Cloud.
I should point out that we will not be tampering with our mascot logo because it’s as well regarded as the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. (No shit!)
On another front, the response to our free journal, Le Scat Noir, has been phenomenal, and we invite you to download issues and tell your friends. If we continue finding readers, we’ll be able to attract a few paid advertisements to underwrite the cost of bringing it to you every month.
Finally, despite the dire results of the election, 2016 was a very good year for Black Scat. You can be sure we’ll continue to do our part to fight the good fight and stand up against threats to our freedoms.
We trust you’ll do the same.
Onward & upward!

A Free Holiday Gift for Scat Lovers!
The gala December issue of Le Scat Noir is available for download. And did we mention it’s free? Of course we did, but it’s worth repeating: LSN is free for all every month.
#218 features a charming Christmas story by Alphonse Allais and is packed with festive art & texts from an international roster of mischief-makers: Paulo Brito, Pink Buddha, Norman Conquest, Hans Greunke, Terri Lloyd, Frank Pulaski, Jason E. Rolfe, Doug Skinner, and Yuriy Tarnawsky.
Treat yourself to faking news, scatological fare, and those regular features we find so addictive — the monthly horoscopes, gas from the past, absurd musical instruments, and uplifting advice for folks down in the dumps.
So what are you waiting for? Click now and unwrap your gift. And be sure to share with friends and loved ones — spread the good Scat!
It’s like SNL, only scrambled and wiser.
