Recepción a Otro Mundo

with 3 comments

006-recepcionmundo2

Okay, you caught me…I don’t actually own a mini-cactus, but if I did I’d totally place it next to my alarm clock to create these funny Full House-like situations (this is something Uncle Joey would totally do and you know it).

But yeah, somehow I’ve been oversleeping normal alarm clock and my cell phone alarm, which most people would compare to the sound of seven fire trucks all converging towards the same burning building. Huh, go figure. So, this works…for now, despite those rare mornings where I really have no idea where I am.

Also, feel free to correct my Spanish. I did what I could with it…

QUESTION OF THE DAY: How many alarms does it take to get a hobbit out of bed?

Does the couch pull out?
Are you kissed goodnight?
How is Memphis tonight?
I don’t believe that everybody’s lonely underneath it all.

Watching the Clowns

Welcome to the life of a guy that draws journal comics! These things just happen, y’know?

Turns out the clowns actually live in my apartment building, and they don’t change back into people clothes after a gig so I see them from time to time in full getup getting their mail and such. Fun, fun times. Not really. I hate clowns.

I’m doomed to love you
I’ve been rolling through stormy weather
I’m thinking of you
And all the places we could roam together

Who watches the Watchmen?

Sorry, couldn’t help myself on that one. Anyways, despite this being the 12/20/08 comic, I’m really posting it on 02/08/09 (yes, I know, it’s stupidly confusing), which means I’m back from New York Comic Con. And it. Was. Awesome! How awesome, Paul, you ask? Well, I went there with three hopes: (1) Meet Bryan Lee O’Malley and pick up the new Scott Pilgrim book; (2) Meet Aaron Douglas, a.k.a. Chief Galen Tyrol from Battlestar Galactica; and (3) buy a new Munchkin set.

Of those, the first two were successfully met, and that more or less means it was an awesome con. Definitely wanna hit it up again in October 2010. Below are three photos for y’all to enjoy (thanks, Mon!):

The First Big Snowstorm of the Season

with 7 comments

2008-12-191

Here’s how one of the photos turned out.

Of course, since then, Clifton’s been slammed a high number of times with dumpings of snow and it is no longer as exciting as it once was. Unless you’re six years old, and then it rocks because it definitely means one thing and one thing only: day off of school. Ah, nostalgia is washing over me as I type. Let’s end on this note then…

We’ve only got one chance to put this at an end
And cross the patron saint of switchblade fights
You said we’re not celebrities, we spark and fade
They die by threes, I’ll make you understand
And you can trade me for an apparition

Worrying About Every Single Thing in the World

with 4 comments

2008-12-09

Of all the months in 2008, none got to me more than December. The laundry list of worries seemed to go on for miles, and no matter how hard I tried not to think about them they still kept me up at night. Still, I got through, I survived like those people on Survivor: by eating rats and forming unethical alliances. Er, not really. But I made it, and that’s actually saying a lot. I just hope I never see another December 2008 again…

Did you see the sky
I think it means that we’ve been lost
Maybe one less time is all we need
I can’t really help it if my tongue’s all tied in knots

Getting Lost in My Own Worlds

with 4 comments

2008-12-08

This comic will make a lot more sense if I sell the story it’s drawn around. But don’t hold your collective breaths, people. The publishing business is slower than [fill in your own words], and that means waiting, waiting, and waiting. Either way, let me get lost. It’s kinda fun sometimes.

You said meet me at a quarter to twelve
And I’m standing in the corner
Wishing you were here in my arms
Fare thee well, my old friends
Fare thee well

Laughing Out Loud is Not a Myth

I love The Office with an intensity like no other. I do not love George Bush delaying something I love with an intensity like no other so that he can say farewell to a population that (mostly) could care less about where he goes next so long as it is away from the White House.

That said, what TV shows currently or used to make you chuckle out loud? Anyone that says Laguna Beach or Kath & Kim is banned from Earth for an uncountable number of years. You’ve been warned.

I’ve heard about a place
Where they enlarge yer space
Don’t cost ya very much
They seem to know their stuff
They take pity on the small ones
