#311 – Cologne Collection

with 7 comments

Yeah, colognes and I seem to get on about as well as Burger and visitors. (Um, make sure your sound isn’t too high up.)

Yay, we’ve reached the first day of Spring! This means that very soon I can go back to the park, plop myself down on a patch of nice, green grass, and finish reading all the books stacked high on my desk. I am excited. Or as they say in Internet slang…I AM TEH EXCITED.

#309 – Dance Party for One

with 9 comments

Hmm, I didn’t mean for the first two comics of the week to both be about techno music. Oh well. Guess that’s how life goes. Anyways, we all do weird stuff when no one is looking. Right? Right?!

Please report your leprechaun sightings here, by the way.

You want it, you need it
And all the answers you’re racing to find out
They might outrun you in the end

#308 – German Douchebag

with 9 comments

Happy St. Patty’s Day, everyone! I hope you’re wearing green. I am (in more places than just one, wink wink).

To solidify that I’m feeling my Irish roots, here’s a video about the greatness that is the potato:

On other notes, just below this post is my guest entry for the High Maintenance Machine contest that I uploaded over the weekend (which meant no one saw it). And I’ll have some good news (!) later to post to Wistful Writings.

High Maintenance Machine contest

with 3 comments

High Maintenance Machine, which is drawn by Matthew Reidsma, is celebrating its reaching of 600 comics with a contest. Enter and you can win fun prizes. I enjoy reading his daily strips so I figured I’d throw my hat in the ring and here is what I came up with:

I just realized I didn’t put my name in the strip itself. Oh wells…

#307 – Tom’s Dream House

with 6 comments

It’s a very beautiful house, Victorian through and through. Lots of rooms, tall windows, and minute details. It has a basement and an attic, which essentially is like a New York style studio. I’d buy it…if I wasn’t, you know, 24. But there’s a few things that might be problematic. The house is in East Bangor, PA (I like to say it as Bang-er), and it’s right across from the fire department where a few times a month they test their horns. I’d be both happy and sad if they got the house; happy for them because they deserve a nice/kickass place together, and sad because they’d be much farther away from moi. But not even a long drive up a mountain could stop me from getting our gaming on.

That said, the weekend is upon us. I’ll be polishing up a short story that needs to be submitted by the end of March, as well as reading some mail that I got recently. Other than that, not much set in stone. Will probably try and eat some green on Sunday to acknowledge my Irish roots.

How about y’all? What are your plans? TELL ME.

I am no masterpiece where innocence is painted green.
Isn’t it strange to think that you created all of me?

#306 – Happy Engineers

with 18 comments

I went to Rowan University, which, above all, is known for three things: being a suitcase college, its education department, and its engineers. That last group though, while often talked about, were rarely seen. They were the snow leopards of the campus, taking to their building and living there for nights upon nights, feasting on the meat of their weaker companions. At least, that’s what I think they did. I never knew an engineer for my entire four years of college, but from what the rumors whispered it sounded like they were the busiest of bodies. And so they deserve some time off, I’d say. Happy Engineers Week, everyone!

Also, I’m proud to be a New Jersian, if only because we can knock down New York governors like loose mailboxes.

If life had background music playing your song
I have got to be honest, I tried to escape you
But the orchestra plays on, and they sang
