The first image was posted on the old site by Xmas Ape and I was blown away by it. The artist is Doug Wildey and he was the creator of “Jonny Quest” although his original art direction was much more detailed (and expensive) than Hanna-Barbara could produce for a weekly series. He’s the inspiration for “Archer” as well.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

I’ve seen it many times, but didn’t know all that valuable information. God damn.

If you haven’t seen Venture Bros, it’s basically a Johnny Quest parody and one of my favorite shows out there. Highly recommended.

It’s also where my pseudonym came from!

Looking back It’s almost unbelievable that the Race Bannon books were in the on-Post library when my family was stationed at Ft. Shafter, Hawaii in the ’70s. They were so sexed-up and racist! Good times …

It’s my beginning to a 5-day weekend, with a “work from home” day thrown in the middle for me. Basically, this means that I can finally catch up on all the crap that I have been putting off because there is literally no time.

List of chores to accomplish in that span:

    Call my ISP and yell at them about my prices
    Finish call with Costco Customer Service and get an RMA for my living room TV which crapped out last month (but is still under warranty!)
    Make various doctor’s appointments which take months to get into
    Have a day where I do nothing but play South Park: Fractured But Whole
    Watch a few episodes of Atlanta
    Buy chips and guac for my friend’s BBQ tomorrow
    Get the phone number of the cute, punk bartender I’m going to see Streetlight Manifesto with at the end of the month
    Finish tomorrow’s Afternoon Open Thread
    Quiet the voices in my head telling me to kill
    Catch up on Battlebots!
    Drink heavily and then use Sunday as my cumulative hangover day

If I accomplish half of these things, man, 5 days well spent.

Senor Weaselo

Does this bartender know she’s seeing Streetlight with you at the end of the month? As for me I saw them at school in ’09 and they were a fuckton better than the other co-headliner. Which is how I got my hatred of Drake!

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

She does! Tickets were purchased and the outline of a date was set. Just gotta close the loop.

I finally saw them for the first time last year, and it was also the first time I made it to the front row at a crowded as fuck show and managed to stay there pretty much the whole time.

You ever wake up at night in a cold sweat suddenly remembering a song that you should’ve added to DFO Radio? That happened with this song for the Guns playlist:

Wakezilla

That list seems like a pretty reasonable list to accomplish.

Ever just sit in your car at a public parking lot and watch other people park? Holy shit, is it ever terrifying. Toddlerzilla fell asleep so I sat at a Costco parking lot, waiting for her to wake up. Anyway, our car almost got hit a couple of times and there were other near misses in a span of 45 minutes.

Wakezilla

You sure they aren’t going to ask you to put your car keys into a bowl?

I’d ask them if there’s anything you can bring. Aside from that, I’d bring a bottle of wine and cheese that pairs well with the wine. I’d go with Shiraz and a smoked Gouda.

Just remember, as messed up as it is for you to be doing this, your son will be infinitely more worried about your interactions. So don’t sweat it!

I’m instapotting curry. I don’t really know what an appropriate curry recipe looks like but I read the instructions like four times before closing that lid because that all sure didn’t look right going in….

Instapot + Curry = Much Forgiveness

You really can’t go wrong.

I love my instant pot. Had ribs in 45 minutes this past weekend. Didn’t seem right going in, finished on the bbq and it worked.

blaxabbath

I got nowhere to finish.

Much like Paul Manafort these days.

yeah right

You did start with fresh ginger, fresh garlic, green onion, lemongrass, coconut milk with turmeric and cardamom didn’t you?

blaxabbath

Just heard the first firework.

Time to go give the dogs some company — so I guess this means I need to get high and fire up the tv.

Should I start Game of Thrones?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I mean, I guess. You could also follow me down the rabbit hole of Korean TV dramas. Start with My Love From Another Star and then maybe Heirs (both are silly and fun), and once you’ve knocked those out move on to Misaeng, which is actually quite brilliant.

I saw this happen to a guy hauling a race car on I-85 in rural North Carolina one night. I was behind and to the left, and he started that fish-tail and it just got stronger and stronger and wilder and then BAM the tow hitch broke off but not the chain that connected the trailer to the pickup. Instantly the trailer started acting like a drogue parachute and straightened the whole mess out as he slowed down and stopped. He didn’t drop the race car either.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Similar; a truck pulling a large empty car hauler trailer. I speed up to get ahead of him. He managed to control it, bit not until after going across both lanes. In Texas, between Beaumont and Orange….. a lovely piece of earth.

Saw a guy swerve last summer with a big ass yacht that went out of control and flew off the shoulder and shattered against the tree line. His truck was basically unscathed, but he looked like he lost his family while picking wreckage off the ground. My heart smiles thinking back on it.

Evidently, Jenni McCarthy will be doing a “bottle signing” of her new wine label at the liquor store across the street next week. Should I go and ask her if giving my kids her wine will be a better alternative than vaccines?
