Evening Chats with Jordan

Just wanted to say sorry again for the lack of content lately, life is getting in the way for both Skylar and I, and we haven’t been as diligent lately.

Tonight I got to watch an awesome debate between Bill Nye the Science Guy, and Ken Ham founder of answers in Genesis, and the creationist Museum. The debate was interesting and lively, and didn’t devolve into the usual creationist debates. Bill Nye’s presence and command over the topics was incredible to watch. he’s so Charismatic, and brilliant.  Ken Ham on the other hand stuck to pretty much the same argument the entire night, and at a couple points sounded like he was preaching, but over all he was fun to listen to (partially due to his delightful Australian accent). It was a good time, and educational, and scientific, and all that wonderful stuff.  If you’d be interested in watching it please visit

Evening Chats with Jordan

Hey all, it’s another late night chat with Jordan.  So I just wanted to say that I am finally entering into the process of moving! It’s super exciting. I, and a few friends of mine have found a lovely little house to rent. Apartment life has been thrilling, and I’m definitely going to miss it. but, it’s time for an actual house. I feel like I’ve become too cramped in my apartment, and I need more breathing room. Today we paid the deposit, and next week we make our first rent payment, and start actually moving stuff (which I am not looking forward to). So over the next month that’s going to be taking up a significant amount of  my energy. That is to say, I promise I will not be slacking on any pages. I’ll definitely be keeping you all updated about this large undertaking. it’s probably going to be the subject of most of my chats, since I really wont have much else on my mind. Once everything is settled I will be getting back into some more longer posts. I am really wanting to do some more artist spotlights, but those tend to involve some research before hand, so they’ll have to wait. (sigh). I hope you all enjoy tomorrows page, it has been one of my favorite to draw, because it introduces a character that I really love. anyway that’s really all I have to say.

take it easy

Tonight is going to be short. All I want to say is that I’ve started to re-read Transmetropolitan. It’s an amazing Little series, featuring one of my favorite characters, that plucky rogue, Spider Jerusalem. If you haven’t read it, go do. The critique it offers on comics, comic writers, journalism, and civil rights is incredible moving. This comic definitely changed my life. Thank God for Spider Jerusalem.

also the art is fucking amazing.

I promise to do a longer article on this, once I read more and can form some coherent analyses . I hope everyone has had a good Saturday.

Under maintenance…

We’ll… we’ll figure something out baby. I promise. Don’t be like that. I know I’m broken your heart before, but please, baby, give me one more chance.

I brought you something:

Basically, Dailies and Blogs are still a pretty rough chore to get done weekly, but I’m not going to stop. I may fail from time to time, but I’m gonna keep trying.

Sorry about missing a post on Saturday. I really didn’t have anything to say anyway, so it would have been short and rambling. Today However, I’d like to take a look at a new action-figure I just got. It came in the mail today, so this is the perfect time to show it off.

Picture 7

This predator is from the recent line of toys made by NECA. This line has been going since 2010, with the reboot of the movies. This particular series is based off of a line of toys from the 80′s made by Kenner called the Hive Wars. These toys were centered on the war between the Xenomorphs (aliens Franchise) and the Predators. the packaging on these ones is actually very reminiscent of those toys, including the line “The Ultimate Alien Hunter.” I love packaging on toys. I think that the packaging is just as much a part of the experience as the toy itself. and this toy has a great package.

This board is fucking awesome. It includes everything you could want. Great Art, a cool little blurb about the back story of this toy, and the other toys in this series. (the Lava Planet Predator, and the Hive Wars Predator)

The action figure comes with a skull staff, and a removable mask, which is especially cool since most of the other toys in this line are either masked, or maskless, not both. He also comes with a shoulder mounted laser gun, brass Egyptian-esque armor, and two huge wrist blades, the longest wrist blades out of any toy in the line.  This has become one of my favorite pieces in my toy collection.

thanks for checking out my new toy. Talk to you later.

Where did the time go?

Holy moley, I didn’t even remember NOT posting a daily yesterday. Neither did Jordan. It was a crazy day. How can I make it up to you?

What if I spend today writing a short story for tomorrow’s post? Would that be okay?

Too bad.

There’s an opposite for everything.

Today I was thinking about how I don’t really feel jealousy anymore. I remember jealousy – that biting bitter anger/love compound that drove me insane with paranoia. Can’t say I miss it.

A result of actively attempting to raise my empathy from years back is that the idea of my significant other having a sexual relationship with another person, or even forming a significant emotional attachment, does not fill me with fear. Rather, it fills me with joy. I think about another person making her happy, liking her as much as I do, and even adding in a new sexual dimension to our relationship, and I’m tickled pink. It’s probably a tad illogical, but it does make my emotions simpler if nothing else, and I never feel insecure in my relationship.

Turns out this is a thing. Compersion is a term coined by polyamorists referring to the empathetic response lovers have to their partner hooking up with another person. I must say, if the whole world was compersive, it’d be a much better place.

Well, I did it.

I made it through the week. I got today’s review done on time, the podcast is recorded, and the pages continue to come. I know the dailies have suffered as a result, but as I get better at it, I promise to bring them back up to sharing my thoughts. Maybe I’ll go back to the current events well, maybe I’ll showcase things I like, but no matter what, it’s just important to improve. Thanks for your implicit support by not commenting that I am terrible and should just give up, and thanks for your patience.
