Watching the Clowns

with 11 comments

003-watchingclowns

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

Bullet’s Check Engine Light Comes On

with 8 comments

2008-12-28

I’m sure we’ve all been here in this moment at some point or another.

Also, anyone wanna guess what I spent the remainder of my drive back staring at? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

How many times can I break til I shatter
Over the line, can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break, let me make my own pattern

Test Drive Into Paterson, New Jersey Proves Scary

with 4 comments

2008-12-13

I was, to really no one’s surprise, afraid for my life. As soon as the light switched to green, I zoomed forward, spotted where the courthouse was, as well as its parking lot, and immediately got the frak out of there. If there’s one part of New Jersey I’ll be happy to never visit again, it’s Paterson (at least the seven streets I saw, that is).

Question of the day: Do you do test drives too or just wing it the day of wherever it is you have to go?

I’m sticking with you
‘Cos I’m made out of glue
Anything that you might do
I’m gonna do too

My Cell Phone Ringtone Scares Me Like Woah

with 2 comments

2008-11-19

Trust me. You don’t want to hear my phone’s ring. It brings weathered warriors to their knees, it summons Godzilla, it sucks all the happiness from a room. Um, it also causes my hand to jump and send a line of ink shooting across my paper. Me thinks me needs to keep it on vibrate when I’m drawing from now on…

Now I think I’m going down to the well tonight
And I’m going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old
I don’t sit around thinking about it
But I probably will

Do Not Play Silent Hill 2 After Sundown

with 12 comments

What? My apartment gets hot.

In case you’ve never played Silent Hill 2 or don’t know what it’s about, you do this until some vagina monster jumps out of the shadows and tries to kick your face in:

Good times, y’all.

And when you’re down and out of touch
I’ll be waiting at that dock
The storm will clear and your ship will come to town
And when the tides don’t go your way
And the sun don’t shine for days
Which someday I will make her free
And Scarlet you had a real friend in me

Seriously, Rapists in the Basement

with one comment

Okay, maybe not seriously…but it really is–and I’m stretching my mind here to think a bit like a serial killer/rapist/wannabe thug–the best place to commit such a crime. Gloomy, unmanned, and brimming with shadows and empty corners, the basement of my apartment complex is a bit like the caves above Minas Morgul. Consider me a hobbit and Shelob a rapist and, well, there you go. Officially, the worst analogy ever. Anyways, if I don’t start my laundry before it gets dark with enough time allotted to retrieve my underoos and t-shirts, I just don’t do my laundry.

And now you know…

REMINDER: I’m posting TWO comics a day until the week is over. Check below for an earlier comic!

Maybe you just didn’t read me right
The lights went out and you just sitting on the stair
I played your song but I couldn’t get the melody right
Why don’t you just shoot up like a ball of rubber bands

It Is Time to Rock the Vote

with 12 comments

Well, the voter thing isn’t complete. I have to mail in a bunch of…photocopied documents. And have I done it? Nope. What have I been doing instead?

Reading comics, duh.

I kid, I kid. I be busy than a beaver with a butt of bubble bombs. (I don’t know what that means.) But it’s true, I’ve been busy.

Anyways, if you look to the right you’ll see I’ve signed up for Twitter. I don’t really plan to use it for much other than to let you readers know what’s going on here at MyLifeComics–such as when the next update might be and so forth–but do not be surprised if you see such Tweets as:

  • Eating a sandwich
  • Missing my sandwich
  • Crying
  • Cursing my PS2 to Hell and back
  • Running around naked and making baa baa noises

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle…

Using Telepathy is Scary

with 8 comments

It was at this moment that we stopped playing and pretended neither of us were freaked out. But we were. I blame it on Walter Cronkite. Coffee ice cream, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream seemed to diminish my telepathic powers, and my stomach had no problem with that…

Oh, and this is the Etc. game for those that don’t know. It might seem simple or easy, but it can be tough and fun (and hectic, if you play with me and my mouth screams). Don’t buy it for $14.99 though. Hit up your local Five and Below!
