Okay, after this, I promise. No more comics about Twilight.
Anyone else a fan of Roswell and miss it dearly? If not, may you be abducted forthwith and probed with the kind of ferocity usually only found in wild beasts. Good luck with that.
You know I’ve seen a lot of what the world can do
And it’s breakin’ my heart in two
– “Wild World” by Cat Stevens
For once, my memory is fuzzy. I remember having Yahtzee kept in my bedroom during my high school years, but I cannot for the life of me recall what made The Bitch and I fight. I guess she drew on me? ::shrugs:: Actually, I do recall now being more annoyed that she defaced our family’s boardgame than anything else. And now I must live with the mockery.
Anyways, two years ago on November 29, 2006, in a spout of craziness, I decided to start drawing a comic strip about my dull, little life. To celebrate this, I threw a party and welcomed all of those that took notice of such an achievement. A picture snapped during all the hullabaloo for proof:
Well you can come on to my place if you want to
You can do anything you want to do
– “Dance Tonight” by Paul McCartney
It was absolutely horrible. But note the key words pertaining to my sister D: she treated.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the book by any means (click to see my review of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight), but if someone, say, found themselves with $10 and a hunger for some vampiric media and they had to choose between seeing this movie and flipping some pages…I’d behoove them to buy the book. Behoove, people. The movie is all about the staring, the bad acting, the creepy abusive relationship which tweens can’t get enough of, and the plotless plot. Meh.
And that has been more than enough words spent writing about this doomed trainload. Dissenters, fire away!
If it’s a broken part, replace it
But if it’s a broken arm then brace it
If it’s a broken heart then face it
– “Details in the Fabric” by Jason Mraz
I’m officially now an expert on the taste of wet pine needles, old leaves, and brown clumps of glob. Thankfully, sometime later, we all had a yummy Thanksgiving dinner, my first since I’ve fallen off the bandwagon and now eat meat like the rest of you animals. The turkey (dark) meat was quite good, but nothing beats Momma Duke’s lumpless mashed potatoes. Her earlier mocking laughter as a shower of crap rained on my head is forgiven for it alone.
Woke up with a bang
And a bug on your face
It crawled in your mouth
And gave you a taste
Of the good life you left behind
But I think you’re gonna be fine
– “Somebody Loves You” by Eels
Click for the full news story. It’s a rather sad story, but it’s the world, alas.
I want to trip inside your head
Spend the day there
To hear the things you haven’t said
And see what you might see
– “Miracle Drug” by U2
Sure, sure. I’ve had this comic Boing-Boinged before (totaling some crazy number like 80,000 hits in two days), I’ve had short stories published both in print magazines and online, and I’ve eaten enough packs of Ramen noodles to feed a small third-world country…but this might very well be one of my greatest achievements. Elmo, perfect pitch and all.
Yes, I’m way behind on the comics. Just know they are coming…eventually. All in color. Cause I’m going to totally spoil you all. Look for a special message about MyLifeComics once I finish up the December ones, too…
It was always worth it
That’s the part I seem to hide
And the busy ant empire
Put all your clothes inside
– “Florida” by Modest Mouse
…oh, Ben Bailey, you crooner of quizzical questions, how I long to ride in your magical taxi!
Actually, when I showed Tara this comic she had no memory of me yelling at her. Go figure. This might be why we’re destined for great things, people. Well, this and many other thingies…
What’s black and white?
What’s read all over?
This tired book, this organ donor
– “All On Black” by Alkaline Trio
