ASBO Jesus has been rocking it lately!
Despite being sick and fatigued (grrr…flu bugs…grrr), today was a phenomenal day as I received a long awaited package. (Ok…perhaps “long awaited” is a tad too melodramatic…but, in an-effort-to-save-face, I did have to wait a full SEVEN days for delivery not to mention the years of reading and penny saving…) 😛
Now, where were we…oh yes, the package…
This before-mentioned package contained the necessary ingredients to completed my collection of Schlock Mercenary comic books!!! (cue the fan-boy screams!)
For those poor souls sadly out of the loop Schlock Mercenary is THE pioneer sci-fi webcomic out there – not to mention the funniest! Drawn by Howard Tayler, the webcomic has been published online seven-days a week since June 12, 2000 and has racked up an arm full of awards and nominations.
I discovered Schlock Mercenary through my brother in early 2004 (about the time Tayler quite his day-job to become a full-time webcomist) and have faithfully followed it every day for the last eight years (hey, don’t judge me – some people read the newspaper every morning, I just choose to read Schlock…and a few hand full dozen plethora of other webcomics).
A Narbonic induced pyrexia.
And it was deadly – absorbing all my energy and brainpower until my mind was full of mad science, zombies, taking gerbils, world dominating evil hamsters, crazy computer genius and a gun-crazy intern.
Yes, I was trapped in Shaenon Garrity’s evil universe as my eyes read all six years of Narbonic one after the other…..
And the crazy thing is that I enjoyed every minute! 🙂
I have to handed it to the NakedPastor – he hit this nail on the head in more ways then one.
Close….very close to the truth.

Thanks vjbear for the comic!
Have you ever read a research article or study and scratched your head?
Well, scratch no longer!! The friendly folks at PhD have provided a guide to deciphering the academse language.
There I was – enjoying some laughs at the expense of some unaware grad students when I noticed that they were discussing a topic expounded upon yours truly. Listening closer, I began….
Are you still caught up on that whole “laughing at grad students” deal? Come on! It’s not like I’m sitting outside of a college dorm laughing and all the undergrads!!
I’m talking about PhD students here – you know Piled Higher & Deeper?
Where was I? ah – forget it. Just enjoy the conversation as recorded by Jorge Cham:
A friend sent me a link to this YouTube video of the Carolina Chocolate Drops playing a 1934 Memphis Jug Band song. It is amazing!!! You have to listen to it.
