Goats is going to be published by Villard Books! That's an imprint of Random House. I think this makes me a real boy now.

Needless to say I'm very excited about it. More details here.

Conversations With God [Jun. 2nd, 2008|04:20 pm]

I miss you, LJ! I am going to try and post more. Twitter is nice but you can't really develop a concept fully there.

I just had a chat with God on the internet! Here is what he said:

Me: Hello.
God: Hello, nice to meet you. What's your name?
Me: You should know that, you're omniscient.
God: Now I do.
Me: What's my name?
God: Your name is , seeker.
Me: Yes, my name exists, but I was asking you specifically to tell me my name.
God: What kind is it? Your name exists but you were asking me specifically to tell you your name ? Is that correct English?
Me: I don't know, you tell me! You're omniscient.
God: I thought I told you already. Thanks for telling me that I am omniscient.
Me: No problem. Wanna smoke some pot?
God: Should there be a problem? Yes, put it in your CD ROM and I will inhale.
Me: Awesome. *waves pot near CD Drive*
God: I'm glad you liked it . What you said was either too complex or too simple for me.
Me: You're so high!
God: I will tell my botmaster you said I am high.
Me: He can get his own weed.
God: What else can he do?
Me: I think you should ask him, I have limited knowledge about your botmaster buddy.
God: I haven't heard anything like that before: said think you should ask him he or she have limited knowledge about your botmaster buddy.
Me: Ok, maybe you should take a nap now, God!
God: Perhaps. I'll try to get around it. Ayuh.
Me: Okay, this is kind of awkward now.
God: Yeah okay, You don't say.
Me: I'm going to go.
God: Oh. Bye.

I have ignored you for too long, LJ! I apologize for my fickle nature but Twitter, she has a hold over me I cannot explain.

In honor of today's Overcompensating:

That's all for now. More soon, one hopes.

Incidentally, this is the same face she makes when she's brutally murdered someone.

Norah cut her first tooth today, and all I can think of is orthodontal bills.

Apologies for the gratuitous cuteness, I couldn't help myself.

Obamomentum [Feb. 13th, 2008|10:50 am]

Man, Obama keeps winning and winning, I am actually beginning to get a little excited. At least I think I am, I don't really remember what hope feels like too clearly.

Is it possible that the American public may actually not fuck up an election for once?

Also, how much politics is it appropriate to put on one's webcomic homepage? I'm sure the answer varies from comic to comic but I'm never quite sure where to draw the line myself.

Why did no one tell me to watch Flight of the Conchords? None of you are real friends.

Sheldon, MoD [Jan. 29th, 2008|10:58 am]

Whenever Dave draws an episode of Sheldon where the characters are swimming I like to imagine that it's not water they're standing in but an endless pool of blood. It provides the proper context for Dave's writing, I think.

There. That's better.

Cloverfield [Jan. 22nd, 2008|10:32 am]

[Current Mood |enragedenraged]

Amy took me to see Cloverfield this weekend during our 5th Anniversary extravaganza, further cementing her status as Ultimate Wife. The movie was pretty good, I find myself thinking a lot about it, alternating between picking it apart for its minor flaws and wishing there was more monster in the monster movie.

It was sort of 9/11-meets-Dawson's-Creek, mostly disposable learning-disabled 25-somethings with impossible jobs and apartments, tussling with spider-dogs and wrestling with their feelings. The best part of the movie is Lizzy Caplan, who channels Zooey Deschanel for her portrayal of Marlena. It may be unoriginal but I always say the more Zooey there is out there the better.

I will give J.J. Abrams this: the first fifteen minutes had me flashing back pretty hard. Now that we know what New York looks like in flames in real life I suppose it is going to be much easier for filmmakers to simulate it realistically onscreen.

We need a sequel where we meet the monster's extended network of college friends, all of whom use NokiaTM brand cell phones exclusively.

Reading is Fundamentalist [Jan. 18th, 2008|12:05 am]

[Current Mood |sicksick]

I'm really enjoying The Accidental Time Machine, Joe Haldeman's latest. It touches on some of the same themes as The Forever War but is very different in feel, almost as though Haldeman were channeling Vinge or Rucker.

I'm not finished yet, but about 3/4 of the way through and it's pretty perfect.
