#317 – Night at Trinity

with 9 comments

Welcome to Friday. Despite having Monday off, I felt like this week went by entirely too slow. Why does that always happen? If you have scientific proof as to how this phenomenon occurs, please let me know.

The Trinity pub
is, surprisingly, the type of bar I like. Anyone who knows me understands that I dislike 99.6% of all bars, bar-goers, and bar antics. But here’s where the Irish hole-in-the-wall lifts the veil: they have couches. And it’s a very laid-back place, with music and Guinness (yay, I spelled it wrong in the comic!). So that works for me. Though I suspect my bar quota for the year has now been met.

Weekend plans? If you got ’em, I want to hear ’em.

#243 – PhilCon 2007

Blah blah blah blah blah. So, um, I haven’t forgotten about the 200 Sad Comics project yet, and if you all behave today I might just post some more before the day is finished. Aren’t I nice? Tell me I’m nice. TELL ME.

I can’t believe none of you got my robot’s name yesterday. Clearly, he’s called X0078941WQQ43ZA. Clearly.

#199 – No Good

with 9 comments

Hey, you! Want to be an unsuccessful cover band? Oh yah? Well, it’s real easy. Just follow these five steps perfectly and you’ll soon be on your way to Crapville in no time at all…

1. Do not perform a soundcheck before the show. That way the feedback from your guitar amps will overpower the microphone and drums, leaving nothing but a wave of muffled noise to swarm at your audience.
2. Open with a song no one will recognize. I mean, being a cover band is more than just doing the hits. Why not play songs nobody likes at all? Yeah!
3. In general, suck.
4. Think you’re awesome when you know you’re not. Nothing says good music like an ego the size of dino droppings.
5. Repeat Step 3 diligently.

Journal - 101 - TextCancun

I feel like I’m living in the Stone Age. I’ve had the same cell phone since 2001, and if you think back to such a time you’ll see that these devices had only just started sprouting up in the world. Truthfully, I used phone cards at payphones to make my calls. Talk about old school! Anyways, since my phone was made in 2001 before texting hit it big, my phone is unable to text. For some strange reason I can receive texts, but there is absolutely no way to respond to them. So…maybe a new phone for my birfday might be nice? Eh? ::hint hint wink wink::
