This is an alien life form with a big goofy smile, a ray gun, a brain that is a fish that swims around in his transparent braincase and a deep sense of his own faultiness. This green alien is a goofy looking extraterrestrial creature with highly advanced but funny looking technology. The gun he is holding melts people. But it doesn’t melt everybody – only sociopaths. It melts people who lie and cheat and rat to the boss about every miniscule aspect of the work day. Pew pew pew. Die conniving evil doers who stay up all night and play videogames and eat cheetos instead of bettering themselves.
One of my favorite mascots in pop culture is Bobs Big Boy. He is fat and happy and he succinctly represents the essence of what it means to be American. His best feature is the big 50s swoosh of hair on top of his head.
This is a blue hipster monster with a black beanie. He wears his beanie when it is 115 degrees outside. He doesn’t care that he is sweating. Being “cool” is more important than being cool. His name is Snoo. His life is in easy mode. He spends most of his time commenting on new stories.
I watched Friday The 13th part 3D on HBO a few days before Halloween when I was a very little kid. It was the movie that introduced the iconic mask in the series. It scared me so bad that I had hocky mask nightmares for a few weeks after. For the first time in my life I was unable to sleep. When I closed my eyes in the dark – I saw Jason walking towards me through wooden cabin window panes. That spooky 80s sound effect echoed in my head as I tried to sleep. Watching it now it is comically bad. But as a little kid a remorseless killer hiding behind a mask was the most frightening thing imaginable.Watch this review on youtube. Warning not for kids.
I love fish tanks. They are a ton of work but fish are amazing to watch. Exotic fish are some of the coolest lifeforms on the planet. It is always fun to go to petsmart and enjoy them without any of the work.
I am excited to see what the Dawgs do under Smart’s leadership. He was a great player and he had a bunch of success coaching for Nick Saban. I hope he can do the same thing in Athens that he did in Tuscaloosa. He has some big shoes to fill. When the guy before you got fired for winning 10 games in the SEC – you are stepping into a pressure cooker. Edit: LOL the Dawgs almost lost to a team that Georgia Southern would have spanked. This points to some serious problems for Smart.
One of the first movies I remember watching at the cinema by myself is Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. My mom dropped me off at a summer matinee. I remember the tiny runner lights in the dark and mysterious shadows walking in and out like airplanes on a runway. I remember finding the movie deeply unsettling. I was very young and it made little sense to me. The characters were hostile and dangerous. And each successive scene was more and more confusing. I had bad dreams about being trapped in Wonderland many nights as a kid. I understand that the book is about victorian politics in England and i dont think the disney movie paid much attention to that. And what was left is a nightmare of creepy but beautifully designed cartoon caracters expousing nonsense.
This is a subject that I know pretty well – I have looked at it more than almost anything else. It is my hand holding a wacom stylus. People have the idea that computers draw for you. What they don’t understand is that drawing has nothing to do with your hand or the medium you use. Drawing is the process of developing the video-card between your ears and using it to project your ideas onto some visual medium. Drawing and painting with a piece of wood or an airbrush on dead trees is the same process as drawing with pixels of light on a screen. This is a wacom intuos 4 stylus – an old trusty warhorse of a peripheral. Cartoon hand wacom stylus. Vive La Pixels.
I love frogs. They are tiny rad monsters that help us keep bugs in check. All amphibians are endangered and it is our responsibility to help them. They are being killed by the deadly disease called chytridiomycosis, caused by the chyrid fungus, known as Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. For something that is so common and deadly, scientists know almost nothing about it.
Kirby Smart was a defensive back at Georgia when I was there. It was the late 90s and I remember him having a bunch of interceptions on a team with among other players – Champ Bailey. He was a little guy with a big heart and a big brain. He was a 4 year starter and I remember munson calling his name quite a few times. Teams liked to throw on him because they thought they could and he made them pay. He went on to be an assistant coach at UGA and other schools and ultimately found most of his success as an assistant for Nick Saban. He coached defense for Saban in the NFL and during his epic run at Alabama. I think he has 4 of those giant rings. I hope he can find a way to bring a few to Georgia.
