I've decided to resume posting again, only starting today this journal will now become friends-only. If you'd like to be added to my friends list, drop me a private message. Thanks!
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes|
For obvious reasons I've put a moratorium on buying music (or anything that doesn't directly relate to survival) but, oh, it's so hard after I heard some Madness clips on YouTube. Madness is a band I really haven't been that into since I was a teenager. They've apparently released a new album last week with the rather annoying title of Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da... but crap, if I do say so myself, those are some DAMN catchy songs on there and remind me why I kinda liked them!
In particular, here's "How Can I Tell You" -- I'm not going to get this out of my head for days!
"Help Thomas finish his final book"|
My new Indiegogo campaign is up. Help fund the completion of the last book in the Newshounds II series. This is it, folks... this'll mean the difference between Thomas's comic falling a thousand feet from the runway in a burning wreck, or coming to a safe, smooth landing. The final goal is $4000 by December 31.
Details are here: http://www.indiegogo.com/newshounds
Please check it out, and please consider helping if you can. The main thing, which I'll emphasize later, is even sharing it on social media gets you a teensy perk!
Thank you, folks. You're all awesome.
That's all. YES!!! :D
Calling Occupants of Ultra-Cartoonary Craft|
I'm half-way through inking a Newshounds page, and all I've been listening to is this:
... I count at least ten times today.
Naughty skit that popped into my head|
( It takes place during the Civil War. Two ladies, Beatrice and Mabel, are sewing soldier's uniforms in a parlor.Collapse )
Usually I hate hoaxes, but...|
...this was hilarious.
An Average Joe says he duped scores of tourists and gawkers in Times Square last month when he posed as a celebrity and had fake paparazzi and a camera crew follow him around.
SUNY New Paltz student Brett Cohen posted a video of the July 27 stunt on YouTube titled "Fake Celebrity Pranks New York City."
Cohen, 21, said he and a pal, Edward Sturm, 23, cooked up the plan about three months ago.
“The idea was, 'I bet if we walked through with bodyguards and photographers, people would go nuts,’" Cohen told the Daily News. "And that’s exactly what happened.”
Rest in peace for certain.
It's a bit weird.... I grew up with Apollo 11 being sort of a HUGE MILESTONE, an epic tale of exploration and scientific advancement. As a result, I just somehow, internally, accepted that Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins were somehow made immortal and wouldn't die. They couldn't possibly pass away, for the world was hollow and they had touched the sky, right? Maybe there was too much 2001-romanticization in there that separated that feeling from reality. Carl Sagan's pasing was depressing, because he was a dreamer, yet he was still earthbound. These gentlemen had flown to a world outside our own. Granted, it was with the help of hundreds or however many people at Houston and various parts of the globe, but they had been the ones who'd broken the barriers that keep us here.
So it's quite startling and a brings me a new sense of reality. There is no real magic; we are all mortal. Even Neil Armstrong has to accept an immortality borne of his accomplishments and place in history, and not one of becoming, truly, "cosmic."
There are still gods among us....|
No, they don't walk on water or turn said water into wine.
They work at places like MAACO. They shrug off modestly all the good reviews they've gotten online. They work hard and immediately find the parts you need for your car at the lowest prices. They tell you what you need and deliver a reasonable estimate for your car's broken bumper, far less than you expected or were told elsewhere. They find your hobbling mother a place to sit while you bring the car around. And they give you a timeline without any obfuscation.
And they make your afternoon a lot better and make two whole weeks' worth of stress GO AWAY.
There are still gods among us.
One expense that nobody factors into cat ownership...
...VENETIAN BLIND REPAIR.
"Hmm de dmm, what are these plastic things in the way of the window, oh well, nothing to do with me, I'll just bulldoze my way through them so I can sit in the sun, shame my human's not here, hmm de dmm..."
