"From Foot to Mouth"

Click photo for larger image.

At the risk of being weird, I'm going to tell you that meals in my family inevitably gravitate towards poop. We're a bunch of potty mouths. But, COME ON! Poop is hilarious.

"Fuel for Flight"

Click photo for larger image.

I can never stay awake on a flight. The second the plane starts to take off my eyes start getting heavy. Then, once we're in the air, it's lights out. I can't help it.

What with all this talk about losing our privacy in exchange for safe flight, I'm still nervous. Not sure I'm into a full body scan, but I'm not sure I'm into strip search. Flying is too convenient. Damn. Lose - lose maybe? I dunno. I have nothing to hide. Just my wiener.

So, it's pretty amazing that they found this arsenic bacteria. Huge implications on how life is built or how it adapts and evolves or where it can thrive. Diaper in a tide pool, anyone?

"Beach, Babes, Bieber"

I recently watched the sketch on SNL where Tina Fey plays a teacher and her new favorite student is Justin Bieber. Gross. Though, I would imagine if I was a teenage heart throb I would love e-v-e-r-y minute of it.

Seriously, Los Angeles is the best.

"Who Wants What?"

Whelp, it looks like my 100th comic is a birthday comic for Sarah. Didn't really have a lot of photos in my collection or a joke in mind. Happy birthday Sarah.

PS. This is technically the 102nd comic, since there were two prototype comics before I actually started counting.

I'll trade you the previously distasteful comic for this ultra-cute one about cats. Okay, it's officially official: I'm a crazy cat man...more cat comics to come. Our neighbors have two kittens that they let run around everywhere, except inside their unit. I'm making friends with them and taking lots of photos. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you already know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, it's Thanksgiving Eve and I might as well be thankful for people and stuff, like my family and friends and cats.

This new program that I'm using makes it really easy. I might just have to buy the full version. Thank God that it's not several hundred bucks like Photoshop. The downside is that I can't really alter the images or create special effects.

And of course, if you didn't already know that bacon is a vegetable, see below:

It's been a little over two weeks since we found Tucker dead. Poor little guy had something going on inside him that nobody could know about. Can't say that I've ever lost a pet before, I mean we've had turtles and birds growing up as a kid, but I never got close to them. They were kind of like a toy that you mostly just looked at and admired. Same with fish. Though, I'm pretty sure Gin and Tonic died due to neglect. But a cat...I still can't read the book that Inna's old boss loaned me to help me deal. I open the first page and can't even make it past the first sentence, "The way to Cat Heaven is a field of sweet grass..." *Choke*

I can't even begin to imagine what it'll be like if a person...

On the plus side of things, our remaining cat, Aggie, knows that she's going to get all the attention. In fact, she's acting a lot differently than when Tucker was around. She sits on laps now of her own free will. Weird. And she's always meowing for the cuddles, which I'm sure she learned from Tucker.

I miss the guy's voice. Every time Aggie makes that face I wonder if she's wondering where her brother is.

There's always one in every apartment complex.

As a kid, I kind of liked Oscar over all the other characters. He lived in a depth-less trash can. He had everything in there. But now that I think about it, he's really a smelly annoying bum who hangs out right outside the front door.

Everyone from every town is so judgmental of new if there's no such thing as a learning curve. Whatevs. It's easy enough to figure out the transit system since it runs consistently and in relatively straight lines.

"Worst of Haul"

Moving is really annoying. I posted a picture recently on Facebook and one of my friends commented "still the same apartment". Wow, I've been living in the same place for 3 years. Awesome. At some point, though, I'm going to find out that I have a lot more crap than I thought...the sedentary life.

This was initially intended to be Mike's birthday comic, but oh well. A week late is better than never?

Basically one of his friends commented on a photo on Facebook with some of that text. It was too good to pass up.

"Does Not Rock"

So, the computer is back from the shop and I can post comics again. I was planning to post all the comics in the road trip to Albuquerque story line in September since it's my brother's birthday month. Oh well, guess it'll just bleed into October.

This one is about poop too.

Complex of the Gods

Wow, haven't posted a comic in a while. Perhaps I've lost the complex that I could actually create something and keep expanding on it. Perhaps I'm just tired and lazy. At any rate, I'm going to try to get back to posting more often.

"Out to Lunch"

Click photo for larger image.

First of all, these photos were all taken before work actually started. Often times I have the privilege of opening up in the morning, which leaves me a few minutes to get settled in before having to start doing stuff. And doing stuff makes you crazy. The busier things get the harder it is to stay sane...especially if you need to keep track of multiple unrelated things. In order to do that you have to be organized and being organized takes a lot of effort.

Yes, people talk to themselves. I didn't used to, but now I do. I have to. It's the only way to make sense of things. Amirite?

"One More Thing"

Click photo for larger image.

Basically this comic and the last two ones are set in the same venue. Our band BOX OF BIRDS played at this new(ish) venue called The Strange near LACC. It's pretty spacious with a good sound system. However, it is implied in this comic that there is no audience. That's not completely true. There were 3 people in the audience: the sound guy, the door lady and the girlfriend.

Psh. I've played to emptier not my bedroom.

The thing that I dislike the most about being in a band is the promoting. Well, it's not like I don't like it, I just don't have a grasp on the concept. Sure, I tell my friends and then what? Also, my friends have seen me perform the same 7 songs for the past 6 years. Why would they bother? I don't blame them.

"Father Knows Best"

Since I made a comic for Mother's Day...BEHOLD, a comic for Father's Day. As much freedom as we have as adults, there is a certain part of me that's soooo tired. I just want someone else to be in charge for a while. You know, so that I don't have to worry about the stupid things like buying groceries or servicing my car or paying bills or whatever else we have to do because we're grown up. Hopefully I'll be a good father to my kids some day.

I love you dad.

"Over It"

Continuation comic from last week's Staph Special. It makes me crazy when you bring home the left overs with all the intention to eat it, but it just sits there and sits there mocking you but you never work up the nerve or appetite to finish it off.

"Staph Special"

Experimenting with new places to eat can be exciting and dangerous. Who knows whether or not the Yelp reviews are right? Reminds me of the time we went to eat at this waffle place on Sunset and Argyle. The pancakes were not done and the eggs were runny. Gross. Someone on Yelp said that they should've been called "The Awful". Never going to eat there again. It was pure crapcrapium.

"Karaoke Mike"

You know what's amazing? Those karaoke machines that are crammed into the microphone. Brilliant. Whatever Filipino invented that is karaoke-ing all the way to the bank. But seriously, don't you just hate it when they don't have the song you want to sing even though it's super common and popular? Jerks.

"Same Old, Same Old"

These changes in priorities are making me a one note character in my own show. It's a little depressing to think that all I do is one thing. And I don't even do it that well. Sure, I can write some neat little tunes that are fun, but then what? I watch TV. I eat burgers. I drink beer. There's nothing wrong with that right? Can I just enjoy a nice good sit? Being older and worrying about shit is not cool.

It's Mother's Day today. Not sure my mom ever officially said these things, but if you think about it, everything a mom tells you to do when you're a kid, you have to do when you're a grown up. It makes you a good grown up. I hope that I'm one. I feel like I suck.

I love you mom.
