Going through the collection and found some interesting stuff:

Some of these posters are racist and/or offensive but please consider the historical contexts.  The historical images are first, the fictional propaganda is further down.

Gronk by Katie Cook, a comic about monsters:


Gronk is an awesomely adorable webcomic that has been around for over two years and has a solid archive. Ms. Cook has a really clean style of art that manages to combine cute with the whimsy required to bring Gronk to life (example, "Kitty Bath" and "Gronk Bath" .  I might have to send some copies of her book to you HYR readers that done got themselves munchkins. Check it out but be prepared for an overload of dawwww.

Thanks Katie Cook, now I have to pretend to be grumpy all over again.

The porkening.



"Swine Time" with Abuelita J. The fixed youtube video and the teaser for Part II






"Swine Time" with Abuelita J.

"Abuelita J!  Again with pork?!?" I hear you say.  To that I reply, "Fine then, be that way, I'll throw it away because it's not good enough for you.  Then I'll sit here, in the dark, alone, waiting to die, while you kill yourself with fast food."

Seriously though, I love the piggie flesh.  Swine is divine.  Plus I'm skipping class because frankly I'd rather clean my kitchen and cook than schlep through the heat to sit in a class I don't want to take for two hours then schlep back.  Plus I don't have work today.  Winning.

Gonna take another crack at the verde, this time using more chiles, nopales, tomatillos, ginger, and a little from column A and a little from column B.

Here's the process of making the verde sauce.  I'm trying something different and cooking it separately from the pork so I can do different things to the pork.

The Continuing Adventures of Scoville Bessler: Sco gets conned by Browncoats

I know I was planning not to do another EVE post but the experience I had last night, I just have to write about.

I got conned.  Yup.  I had the feeling it was a set-up but hey, win some lose some.  Now the funny part is not when the pirate lured me off the beaten path (he was posing as a fellow n00b who wanted to practice PVP plus he offered me candy and a puppy and puppy made of candy) and proceeded to SVU me, what amuses me to no end is what happened after he stopped shooting at me and tried to hold me for ransom.

The pirate demanded that I pay him 5mil ISK (the in-game currency) and he'd let me be on my way.  Yeah, right.  Besides the boat I was in with all the equipment wasn't worth 5mil.  So I offered to pay half and the rest when I was safely out of harm's way.  He refused, I don't blame him because I wasn't gonna pay him the other half.  So we are at an impasse the pirate and I.  Then I remembered something I saw during the EVE Tournament, you can set your ship to self-destruct.

"Then he got an idea. An awful idea. The Grinch got a wonderful, *awful* idea!"


What would happen if I set my ship to self-destruct and abandoned ship?  So that's what I did.  I Kobayashi Maru'd the motherfucker.  Sure he could salvage the wreck but I had The Pork Chop Express  insured for the full amount so no real harm done.  I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe.  What a cluster-fuck of a mugging.  My hat was off to the guy though, I haven't fell for something like since I was underage and trying to get alcohol.  I sent him a million ISK any way just for amusing me so much.  At least I didn't get nabbed by these guys:






AND, to things even better, the schmuck (I was duped so I was a schnook) was part of  the Browncoat Mercenary Corp, led by one Saffron Reanolds!  I'm lucky I didn't end up naked on a rock in the middle of nowhere.  I just wish I had been in "The Hero of Canton".  I suddenly felt a slew of people sing, "The man they called Jane."

I love this game, in case you couldn't tell, because of shit like this and other stuff too.  Plus they never make you pay for new content.
