A sign I’ve been playing too much Scribblenauts

with 5 comments

scribblenauters

Yup. Both Tara and I have been playing Scribblenauts lately, and we’re of the same mind that it’s fun, but flawed. Still, the art direction is fantastic, and for that I do fanart!

Bonus points will be awarded to those commenting if they refrain from using “aww” and/or “cute.”

Also, this is somewhat funny and sad:

Sky hangs heavy in lowest light
As the day slips down past the sun
Black and blue in the forest green
Shadows are gone, they have run

Somehow, I Channeled Elmo With Ease

with 6 comments

2008-11-25

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

Everyone Laugh at the Dewey Pyle

I’m not sure why I drew myself looking angry in that final panel, but I definitely wasn’t anything but a jolly zombie with my raccoon eyes. Oh, and here’s the video for the final commercial, where you can see me in undead form hug attack Tara in a mall parking lot:

Yes, folks. That’s right. Not an ounce of acting skills in my body. And of course, what you can’t see is that I’m holding a Starbucks bottled frappuccino drink the entire time…

Just don’t forget this
We won’t regret this
We’ve got one chance to get it right

Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink

with 3 comments

Yes, I know the wink is old hat now, but that’s what I get for drawing my comics behind the times. Also, and here comes Political Pauly, the fact that Sarah Palin was actually on SNL this past weekend does nothing for her character; in fact, if anything, it showed that she has less sense of humor than previously suspected. She cannot take a joke, and she’s far too late to even try.

That said, there’s been some nice MyLifeComics love going on lately. Here’s a mini-breakdown:
1. Imagine me puffing out my chest when I type this, but I made it on CuteOtters.com, people! CUTE OTTERS DOT COM! PLUS MYLIFECOMICS! THE GREATEST INTERNET CROSSBREED!
2. Also, reader Leaf Probably alerted me to the fact that she’s passing along the “Hooked on Your Blog” award to me! Thank ya very muchly!

Okay, that’s all. Only one comic for today, as I gotta draw more…

Why the bother, you’re no brother?
You’re the wrong I need
Boy, we all found an audience
while you found the worst of me
You got another thing

Ocean City Air Show Accident-Free

with 8 comments

Those planes do some crazy maneuvers, twisting and turning like drunk snakes, soaring straight up into the sky until they flip themselves upside-down or zooming along beside their brothers. It’s enough to tighten one’s heartstrings, even if it is also exciting at the same time. I have vague memories of going to one or two air shows with my father when I was younger, but all that really materializes for me is the blur of something large and the whoosh it leaves in its wake…

On a note completely unrelated to today’s comic, I’ve discovered a song and music video that completely and unarguably summarizes everything that terrorizes me about the 1980s:

I’m sorry. (Did you see the robot?)

It’s hard to see your way out
When you live in a house in a house
Cause you don’t realize
That the windows were open the whole time

AHHAHAAHAHAHA I CAN’T DRAW DAVID BOWIE FOR SHIT! AHAHA!

Wanna see–and hear–that penultimate song in panel numero three? Fast forward to about 1:48 here:

Slime and snails
Or puppy dogs tails
Thunder or lightning

#385 – Bitsy Goes Golfing

with 5 comments

Yes, another golfing comic. Deal with it. In fact, there’ll be a third one in the upcoming days. Yes, I’m a wee bit more active these days. Long gone are the days where I go to Quiznos, chat up the locals, and draw about the mayhem that ensues…

Bitsy, pay attention to this paragraph. Animal Crossing: City Folk was just announced today, and you can check out the trailer for it here! It’s for the Wii, and you take a bus into the city where all the shops, plus new ones, seem to be. Other than that and a few new holidays to be celebrated, it seems to be the same game as AC: WW, but it is hard to tell. Will have to wait for more information. This might be the sole reason to buy a Wii, I tell you:

Get down, summer in the city!

Get down, summer in the city!

Fuck yes!

Also, Joss Whedon fans unite! Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is absolutely wonderful and well worth watching. It’s got a great cast, a fun plot, and silly songs. By the gods of Kobol are the songs catchy! And it’ll only be up for a short time so get on it now. Okay, that’s enough outta me.

Which then grew into hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word

#375 – Chili’s Hostess

with 8 comments

I’m really tired and unsatisfied with the way my comics have been looking with the black background. I don’t even remember why I started doing it anyways. To be different, perhaps? But we’re going this way now, with a typewriter-esque font for the date. I like it. You should too. If not, well…suck a cow.

Now, I know you’re all on the edge of your seats here to learn who I’ve declared as the winner of the Name My MacBook contest. So, I’ll announce the winner…right after the commercial break.

Ah, wasn’t that refreshing? So, the winner is…treenieweenie! She must know that, deep down, I’m a simple man with simple passions, one of those being pasta. Thus, from this day forth, my laptop shall be known as Macaroni! Long live, Macaroni! Huzzah, huzzah! ::tosses confetti and watches fireworks::

Thanks to all that threw down their suggestions. A lot of them were great, really. Trina, I’ll start working on your undersea adventure artwork over the weekend.

Question of the day: How many snobs does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Half of the time we’re gone
But we don’t know where
And we don’t know where

#371 – Bitsy’s Favorite Videogame

with 13 comments

Happy birthday, Bitsy! May it be filled with presents drifting from balloons, pantless chipmunks, and pixelated cakestuff! I can’t wait for you to come home for summer vacation so we can visit each other’s towns and fish and decorate our houses (by that, of course, I mean you give me rare furniture to make mine prettier). We’re almost there! Can you smell the beach, shoobies, and boardwalk za?

The birthday girl also told me to search this video out, a mesh of old school dance footage that is synced flawlessly with some rap song, which I will admit is pretty entertaining:

If I had one-fifth of the dancing skills as the lovely ladies above here have I could rule the world..

To those reading this that are not my sister (that’d be most of you), the weekend has arrived. What does that mean for y’all? I’ll be avoiding the heat, hanging out with the girlfriend, and possibly making the big purchase I alluded to earlier. You all assumed I already made it, and you know what assuming does, right? ASS-U-ME. For shame! Anyways, give me your plans. You will receive bonus points if you use any of the following three words: lull, escapade, or zenith.

No time frame, for what I need to do today
Here at the yellow house. I think I’m gonna play
With free-livin’ lads down the street aways away
As I feel the moon rise
The time that all feels is the right time
Here in our sleepy house
