Fun with Photoshop

Damn you, McDonald's.  You're just begging to be photoshopped with crap like this.



Aaaaaand...



Yes, I'm fully aware that this doesn't make any sense.  Bite me, I'm brilliant and you know it.

WORM QUARTET UPDATE AND BLATANT PLUG - 1/24/10

Hey, people!

How've you been?

Got some shows (including a real-live Rochester show!) and a new creative project
to report, but first, let's do this:

HAITI RELIEF NEWS
For the rest of January, 50% of all my proceeds from online Worm Quartet CD,
digital download, and merchandise sales will go to the Red Cross / WFP
relief efforts in Haiti. Or you can shun my stupid music and donate yourself.

NEW CREATIVE PROJECT NEWS
Because being a rock star has utterly failed to get me laid, I'm now a webcomic
author to boot, bitches! Rob Balder has recently decided to leave his wonderful
PartiallyClips comic in order to concentrate fully on his new book, Erfworld,
and rather than abandon PartiallyClips, he's decided to hand the reigns over
to ME! I'll have a new strip up every Tuesday and Friday! Check it out at

Artistic statement shmartistic statement



OBSERVATIONS:
1. It's hard to make a minimalist artistic statement on society and futility and death and stuff in a house full of cats
2. ¶ likes mayonnaise.

Fun with consumables and parenting failures

I am failing miserably at keeping consumables out of the snow today. 

Snoozed too long to get to work early today, so I volunteered to drive Steve to school.  Pured myself a nice big travel mug 'o' joe, loaded up the boy, and put the mug on the roof of my car so I could situate my laptop and such.

Pulled out of the driveway and heard a series of loud thunks as my travel mug rolled off my car and into the road.  Got out, picked it up, shook it off, got back in the car, and was rigorously questioned by Steve, whose five-year-old sponge of a brain remembered every detail of the last time I did this exact same thing.  "Why do you keep doing that, daddy?" was the most poignant question, and I had to explain the paradox that in the morning, daddy needs the substance IN the travel mug in order for his brain to function sufficiently to properly operate said travel mug.

Got to school, pulled up to the door where all the parents loop around to drop their kids off, hugged Steve, opened the passenger side door, and my lunch spilled out and onto the ground.  Steve, being a nice kid, quickly started collecting my banana and yogurt from under the car, when the bitch the SUV behind me decided she'd waited long enough and started honking, apparently implying that I should run over my lunch (and my son's hand) rather than inconvenience her further.  My insufficiently-caffeinated brain started thumping with anger, and I engaged in the following parental fail:

STEVE: "That car is honking!"
ME: "Yeah, well, that car can go screw itself."
STEVE (turning to the SUV with as much anger as I've ever seen on his face): "YEAH!  YOU GO SCREW YOURSELF UP!"

Of course I had to chastise him for this, even though he was totally sticking up for his dad, and was basically just repeating what I'd said.  But yeah, that's been my morning.  How's yours?

Oh, and there's a new PartiallyClips!  Go!  Read!  Enjoy!  Comment!

Announcement time!

Okay, peeps - the time has come to announce ONE of the mysterious creative projects I've been hinting around about:

I am the new writer of Rob Balder's PartiallyClips comic, and my first strip is live NOW.  

Yes, both of those links go to the same place!  So do these!

This has been in the works for a while now.  Rob has needed more time to devote to his Make Way For Noddy slashfic and his ErfWorld comic (that link goes somewhere else, I swear,) and approached me a while back to see if I could make apply my weirdass comedy mind to comics like I do to music.  Fortunately, clipart and cheesy synths look the same to my coffee-addled brain, so it was a snap.  That's a lie, it was actually insanely difficult.  But ultimately I went to my old creative standby that's led to so many Worm Quartet songs, namely taking my notebook into the bathroom with me at work.  And lo, I managed to crank out some stuff that Rob and my wife found amusing.  I'm hoping that you will too.

"But Shoebox," you say.  "Aren't you already too goddamned busy to find time to fart?  Why the HELL would you take on another creative project when you're barely keeping up with Worm Quartet, you complete numbskull?"  Glad you asked, jerkface.  My brain actually seems to work better when I'm forcing it to churn out ideas.  

If you're not familiar with PartiallyClips, basically it's a minimalist comic made from royalty-free commercial clip art, with dialog and text added and little or no changes to the original art.  It's as perfect to an aspiring webcomic author who can't draw as rap is to musicians who can't sing.  4 papers carry it, and it's got a decent following online that I have to try not to alienate.  It's been my favorite webcomic for years, and I'm seriously honored that Rob believes I can follow in his footsteps.

So check it out, dammit!   I'll be updating every Tuesday and Friday.

NOTE:  If you're following PartiallyClips here on LJ, that'll be updated soon.
