Novel Captioning

This is the way things are heading — novels on TV.  But there’ll also have to be explosions and people making out in the background, or else no one’ll give a rat’s keyster.

Swing Voter Schming Schmoter

If I could have the swing voters’ attention for just a moment?  That’s right, sit down.  I’ll wait.  Do you want anything to drink?  There’s a Pepsi in the fridge.  All set?  Ahem.  Don’t be crazy come November, OK?  Let’s go ahead and vote for Barack Obama and stop giving all the level-headed, reasonable people heart attacks.  I’ve got to hand it to you though, swing voters: you really know how to ramp up the tension.  You’ve got me on the edge of my seat over here.  If this were a movie I’d be like, “Man, this movie was SO worth the $10 I paid.”  But you know what?  It’s not a movie.  This is actual real life. 

I seriously don’t get swing voters in this election.  Is the right answer not so clearly obvious?  Seriously, anyone who’s undecided, or anyone who knows an undecided voter, please give me some insight into your (or their) thought process on being on the fence in light of two candidates with such unbelievably stark differences.

Beet Root Demon

All right, here’s a new picture. What is a beet root anyway? I think someone said the words in my viscinity the other day and the name just stuck. Also, I’ve been watching this super lame show on Discovery called “A Haunting” about these people who all seem to be likely either making these stories up or having some kind of crack flashbacks, because the hauntings they’ve experienced are so cliched and also the recreations are very poorly acted.  But for some reason I watched a marathon of them the other day. I guess this comes from that, too.

Update: my friend Kyle from the Writer’s Center Blog  — which is a terrific blog — has posted a couple of my drawings for a caption contest he’s running over there.  Check out his blog and the Writer’s Center website to see if you’d like to take any writing classes — the WC is located in Bethesda, Maryland and the classes are very much worth the money.

Namaste Magnets

 

Boy, these drawings just keep getting more and more random.  No real story behind this one, just pure weirdness at work.  Hope everyone’s been doing well.  I’ll try to get back into a routine of posting drawings more regularly — I just had a bunch of stuff happen, but things will get back to normal soon.  Thanks for your patience.

Fallout Web

Some really depressing/pragmatic economist guy was on Glenn Beck’s horsecrap show tonight saying that we’re heading for a really bad economy.  Like on par with the 1970’s and whatnot.  But the thing was the guy wasn’t like many of Beck’s usual guests who puff up their chests and scream.  He was all resigned and stuff.  Like all prognosticating hell on earth while shrugging his shoulders.

I believe this man.

When bad news is packaged with abject resignation on a t.v. show known for its bombastic guests/host, and it’s a very conservative show at that (I don’t care how hard he tries to come off as middle of the road gee whiz Midwest guy, Beck is a complete narcissist a-hole), when it’s packaged like this, I absolutely believe the economist.  He’s saying that in the not-too-distant future we’ll no longer think of the American Dream as attainable and it will cease to exist.  This is how bad it has gotten.  No one trusts the government.  It has lost the trust of its people.  This is very bad.  Our buying power will diminish significantly in the coming years as Asia rises.  So build those fallout webs, my pretties.

Super Flip Vs. The Building Facade

 

Took a road trip this weekend with my lady and I sketched out some new drawings.  You’ll see them all (probably) in the coming days.  We’ll see if they make the cut.  Anyway, I’ve found that pound for pound, drawing is the best way to be creative in the car while simultaneously not tuning out the other person you’re road-tripping with.  If you get an imaginiative itch and have to do something about it, but don’t want to create a potentially lethal confrontation over not listening to your significant other’s conversation, then I highly recommend drawing.
