Thing Zero.

I think I’ve decided on a new direction for my someday-webcomic. I am staggeringly ill-talented for drawing the kind of world I want for this comic; my every attempt at illustrating it only further hammers that home. I’m thoroughly dissatisfied with even the smallest and most simple of efforts. Unfortunately what I’m going for is both pretty nuanced and very visual, and when you can’t do more than create slightly emotive blobby shapes you’re destined […]

Lying liars.

I just spilled a big ol’ drink all over everything. So that was a thing. I was born on a Tuesday. Mother Goose says this makes me “full of grace”. Mother Goose is a lying whore. This was a weird day overall. I think I went through four or five hours waking up and only actually got there around 8pm. Sometimes I think I never quite recovered from working nights for so many years. I’ve […]

A friend on Facebook – or, well, someone I went to high school and some college with who friended me on Facebook which aside from farming coins and calling hits on people or some shit seems to be the sole purpose of Facebook – said something today that reminded me of the crap-ass registration system we used to have back when I first went to LSU. It was an automated phone system, because we were […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 25 January

Next week will give us a five-pack from David Bowie. I didn’t preface that with a lot of fanfare, mostly because I’ve spent the past hour and a half since Mike woke me with the news basically hemorrhaging joy and excitement. It’s not as gross as it sounds. But don’t let the that lack of fanfare fool you. I have been waiting over three years for Harmonix to give me another Bowie DLC pack. I […]

Time division.

The plan was to get up and write about what I dreamed. Typically I then didn’t dream anything remotely coherent. The best I can recall is that it featured Seth Green, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, and a drop of blood on a golden labrador retriever. I dunno either. But I will tell you that Maleficent fucked me up when I was a kid, so apparently I’m still five. I’m loving doing my old SNL reviews, […]

Live from New York... 1x06: Lily Tomlin

All the SNL reviews have been listed together in a burst of fine over-organization, which you can see here if that’s your thing. Lily Tomlin :: 22 November 1975 Cold Open: President Ford (Chevy Chase) speaks directly to the nation on a few important points. During his speech he never quite manages to get past point #1, sneezes into his tie, answers a glass of water, and falls over his desk. “Live from New York…” […]

So there was this thing.

It was really great. I had an idea for a post all planned around it. I forgot what it was. Now here it is, write-a-post-time, and I’ve got nothing to replace it. Tomorrow morning, you’re coming first, Greatest Day. And I’m going to talk about whatever I dreamed. You’re welcome, Internet.

Live from New York... 1x05: Robert Klein

All the SNL reviews have been listed together in a burst of fine over-organization, which you can see here if that’s your thing. Robert Klein :: 15 November 1975 Cold Open: Beauty pageant winner Sherry Pan-Norwak (Laraine Newman) is supposed to give her acceptance speech and walk down the runway, but she proclaims the whole thing sexist and refuses. She removes all her trappings, foisting them on the announcer (Chevy Chase), who must instead take […]

Aiming for a high.

Today there were words and naps and planes and music. Pretty decent all ’round. My morning stated off sluggish but I pushed myself to go get some writing done. So I got my office all nice and snuggly warm. Had my laptop balanced, my fingers positioned, my feet up. I’m ready to go. Then half an hour later I wake up in the same position, except my head’s flung back at some twisted angle and […]
