Que Sera Sera: SWEET AS THE PUNCH

Remind me to never write anything again unless it is as steeped in awesome as the website above. I was writing a long mopey email to a friend and took a break to read some blog action and almost immediately stopped the email forever.

It was This post: http://queserasera.org/archives/000916.html

Maybe I will stick to the ol’ photography, since the digital photography class went so awesomely, except for the not-sleeping-until-6am business last night as I put together my final project.

I did take an excellent nap this afternoon while Lisa was massaging a random woman and Stan was taking Noah to Toys-R-Us, which is closing. It was the sort of nap where I didn’t notice myself falling asleep, but I woke up with a start. Since I had no immediate need to get up I enjoyed a little cool down period where I closed my eyes and half-napped. I might be a little sore tomorrow because I didn’t stretch before my nap, but that soreness can be a real badge of honor.

Also, Sideways was excellent. I highly approve. You don’t need me to tell you that, since everyone and their mothers already loves it and are drinking wine by the bucketfull as a result. In our home we drank our usual motley bucket of spirits, from Maibock to pear cider to screwdrivers. Pear cider! That used to be the goto salve for Lisa’s moods. Now it is just something we have in the fridge.

I’m gonna go lie awake in bed for a number of hours now. There is a price to pay for a good nap, and this is it.

VENTURE BROTHERS Storyboard Art

LOVELACE POPart > The VENTURE BROTHERS > Storyboard Art

Hardy Boys
Tom Swift
Danny Dunn

Those are the three references quoted in the last couple reviews that I read. Interestingly, those books WERE my youth. Yes, I grew up in the fifties via the eighties.

Growing up in the eighties makes me old enough to have my own Fred Savage sitcom. Never mind. Go watch the Venture Brothers.

“The Life Aquatic with Thaddeus Venture”

Floating in a Most Peculiar Way

Hmm. A blog from some random dude that combines the Venture Brothers with the Life Aquatic. Highly entertaining - and probably the sort of thing that my English Composition instructor would revel in. That’s probably the reason that I reveled in it.

Ugh. Like two days until I am in school. MF.

Me as South Park

h0bbel is da man.

The Norwegian man.

Um, just… um… I suppose that I should post something witty and/or interesting. Lots of luck with that. People have already made comments about h0bbel’s man-boobs, so I’ve got nothin’ left to comment on. On which to comment.

Child�s Play


Penny Arcade is working with the Seattle Children�s Hospital and Amazon.com to make this Christmas really special for a lot of very sick kids.

Buy something for those kids by buying something from their wishlist. Do it for the kids.

A [excluded] work of [excluded] genius

I like Penny Arcade. Remember when you lived in a geeky apartment full of computers and gaming systems, and you played Need For Speed with your best friend every day? Penny Arcade is all that and more, and if you don’t read it at least once in a while you are sorely missing out.

In what starts out as a madcap romp of a post, Tycho takes us down the Oregon Trail of youthful romance that leads to a sensation of poignant loss. I’m commenting on it simply because I can.

Tycho posits that he often excludes 50% of his vocabulary when he talks to people. I think that we all know that the percentage of discarded vocabulary more closely approximates 99% rather than 50%. People don’t got words, so you gotta talk with small ones so they get you.

From what I have seen, this is Tycho’s best work.

“Just as the man who is gutshot is made instantaneously aware of previously unknown internal geographies, it became suddenly clear that there was a vast expanse in me, a region, a continent, perhaps even a universe that could contain a truly stunning volume of pure pain.”

I’m afraid that I have thrown away the words to properly describe the genius of this sentence, so I will use the small ones that I have left: fucking awesome. On the sixth word I was instantly feeling every crush I’ve ever had over again - every woman for whom I’d ever pined - every crazed obsession that forced me to walk past a girl’s house on the way home from junior high (or out of my way) - all of that in one elaborate unraveling of emotion.

Okay, some of this is just hyperbole because I’m inspired, but hell, Penny Arcade deserves it. Thanks for the wang jokes, guys!

Also, Tycho inadvertantly introduced me to Built to Spill, which was a real act of kindness indeed.

Starboy no more

Narrator: When last we saw our stalwart hero, he was finishing up a certain Big Book of Starboy Action. Let’s see what he’s up to now.

Starboy

I had planned to put my own comics here, but it seems that the name of my fave character has been taken. Oh well.

I’m not really a fanboy. I haven’t read superhero comics since I was just a wee lad poking around in the closet and discovering my (now ex-) stepfather’s stash of comics. Marvel, DC, all that good stuff. Nowadays I like the indie stuff- personal comics with an intimate bent. Either that or wicked humor.

Reduction was a local publication that I dug. Now it is something else.

Okay, no one really asked for it, but I have made the Big Book of Starboy into a .pdf file. Download it and print out your own copy! (some assembly required)

Instructions: Assemble the pages in order. For a really pro look, copy the cover onto cardstock and do the rest of the pages front and back on plain paper.
