My darling Philippine Webby Nominee

My darling Philippine Webby Nominee is finally awake! Top o’ the mornin’!

When I hustle over to

When I hustle over to the desk every 15 minutes, the movie goes off and Fox Kids comes on. It’s all anime these days, which is cool. The craftsmanship is a little better. I have to admit I haven’t watched many cartoons since I was a munchkin. Not because I don’t love cartoons–but because around the time superhero cartoons became… (more…)

I suppose it is a

I suppose it is a good publicity stunt, but only if I finish. If I fail, I’m consigned to blogger oblivion. Forever the loser that couldn’t follow through. No guts, no glory. No pain, no gain. No milk, no Froot Loops. And the image is a special favor from Andre, because he’s a wonderful human being. Someday, I’ll compose a… (more…)

14 hours of blog on

14 hours of blog on the wall, 14 hours of blog…I’m gonna quit with the asshole joke now. Really.

I'm watching Get Bruce in

I’m watching Get Bruce in 15-minute increments. It’s a fun little documentary. So far, I’d recommend it. I’m stunned that anyone could be consistently, prolifically funny for a living. I mean, I can do a few funny paragraphs a week–but all the time???. Oh no.

The best one: we had an assignment to go home and find out where our family names came from. I gave some ridiculous contrived… (more…)

BUNGHOLIO!!!!! Ahem. 15 hours to

BUNGHOLIO!!!!! Ahem. 15 hours to go.

This is my buddy Lance.

This is my buddy Lance. We used to hang out after school a lot. Lance could do a backflip over a fence taller than he was, and land on his feet on the other side. Most of the time. Once he landed flat on his back. I believe that was the last backflip over the fence. Too bad, it was… (more…)

It's been a while, but

It’s been a while, but this seems like a good opportunity to add some grade school installments. This little creep is Don Hurst. He was always trying to get people in trouble. I felt like it was just me, but it was everybody–little nark. I was particularly hard to get in trouble, so I suppose I was a special challenge… (more…)
