Wine: Keep a red and a white on hand at all times. When choosing wines on the wine aisle, use this simple rhyme to make your selection: “Closer to the floor, is meant for the poor / closer to the lights, is more like for if Bono comes over.” -=RAY=-

People & Places / A Very Puggley Birthday
« on: January 19, 2017, 06:23:00 pm »
It is the birthday of our very own Wombat! Long may she reign over TOUAMB. Fete her that she might imagine your way into bounty in the new year.

Many thanks for getting me into an NYC apartment with a small dog. I am grateful that this was your plan for me.

Another day, another chance to appreciate our very own bovine fellow. May all your days be filled with nachos for dinner just as you fill our board with post-y goodness. Happy Birthday!

In times like these, I'm glad we have a place like TOUAMB. A place where we can talk about things, or not talk about things, and even if we disagree we all respect each other. August West is an exemplar of being that kind of person, and I think, a major setter of the tone on here. Thanks for being you, AW. Happy birthday.

Arts & Entertainment / Gawker

I am struggling with the whole thing about Gawker.
People are talking about it as "billionaire doesn't like a news outlet and gets it shut down."
But from where I stand it looks like "maybe-sometimes-good journalistic outlet also publishes vile trash that violates people's privacy, refuses to take it down and is incredibly arrogant about it, and gets slapped down mightily."

A lot of birthdays recently for people who have not posted in months. It's a sad thing.

We all hope that you are having a good birthday! Eat some good NC bbq for me.

Arts & Entertainment / Video Games
« on: August 02, 2016, 10:16:46 pm »
Lately I really want to play video games. But none of them are really doing it for me. I was trying A Link to the Past and got fairly far before I got distracted. Tried replaying Baldur's Gate and it was not as amazing as I remembered from back in the day.

Now trying Super Metroid. It's funny, I have never played this game or anything like it, but this is definitely what I thought all video games were as a child. A space lady jumping around and shooting a laser gun at aliens. I'm really digging the vibe but my reflexes are atrocious.

I got interested in trying Metroid because apparently it is considered the inspiration for a whole genre of newer indie games-- "metroidvanias"-- and the description of what that entails made me want to play one of the originals. Side-scrolling action games where you explore new areas that you can access after getting new items. I also read that the Castlevania that came out for the playstation combined that concept with ideas from Zelda... I want to play that but I have absolutely no way to play a Playstation game.

Arts & Entertainment / Patreon?
« on: July 19, 2016, 12:13:09 am »
Any of you guys check this thing out? I am currently supporting a cartoonist I really like with a small donation every month. I am into the idea that I can contribute a small amount (my pledge is ~ the price of a latte every month) to making sure an underpaid creative person I like can be comfortable, whether she's spending it on Life's Necessities or literally a beer or coffee or whatever.

Now this woman from St Louis is posting about hers. It's interesting, I did not realize you could do this, but hers is now set to a pledge amount "per creation" which feels a bit weirder to me. Firstly, I have no idea how long a piece takes, and do not want to contribute more than a small amount per month if I were to join once I find a job. Secondly, hers has "rewards" like getting digital files or postcards of the pieces... which I don't want at all. I don't want to buy stuff and create more work for my friend, I want to send her some money to show my support for her work. Hmm.

It's also interesting that paying for a digital file really bothers me, but it doesn't bother me to just send the person money. I'd much much rather do the second.

Update: so it looks like I actually only donated a total of $10 to the other cartoonist. She posted that she started feeling weird about not posting enough "exclusive content" (that I didn't care about anyway!) and she hasn't accepted donations since. Darn.

The combo doesn't actually sound that good considering your weather lately, but our demands are firm.

Happy birthday Ash!

Sports & Leisure / Italy
« on: June 06, 2016, 04:09:50 pm »
So, at the end of this month I am going to Italy. My parents are both turning 60 this year, and in addition my maternal grandparents announced that soon they will be too old to go on any more trips. So the whole maternal side of the family is renting a big house in Italy near Florence and going for a week. Very excited.

Any of you suckers been to Italy? I am planning on making a 1 or 2 day trip down to Rome. Otherwise my schedule is open.

We are going to be staying exactly as far from Florence (in travel time) as I live from NYC. I cannot escape commuter trains. But I think I can handle riding a train in Italy for an hour and looking out the window. Actually that sounds kind of great. Probably prettier than the parts of Jersey that I see from the train.

Not Daisy Owl / Comic Books
« on: May 24, 2016, 03:44:04 pm »
Guys, comics are so good. But I'm so picky and don't know how to find more stuff that I like. A manga guy I like has been publishing a new series, and it seems cool, but I can ONLY find it for free illegally online. I haven't found anywhere that it's available for purchase, although I did find a few blogs that said "we used to host fan-translated issues of this comic, but it is now available in the US so we took them down."

Comics are a thing where I would definitely pay some kind of subscription to get them digitally or monthly on crappy paper, rather than buying 3-inch-thick books for $20 that I'll read in 2 days that will sit on my shelf forever. It looks like almost all of the manga I like were published by 1 magazine in Japan, but it isn't available in English. Guess I have to learn Japanese. Yeesh.

My really good friend from St Louis is making comics. And I'm mad at him, because he sent us all his first full comic book but says he doesn't think he will actually publish it. This thing is great. I see why he doesn't want to put it out, if I'm being empathetic, because it's definitely a collection of examples of a guy trying out different styles. But damn, it's so cool, and has a very professional polish that I think is missing from a lot of Indie Comics stuff. I just want him to publish something and sell it so I can tell everyone to buy it. Maybe I will scan a single page to share with you guys.

Anyway. Are there good web comics anymore? My desire for comics is insatiable right now even though I told myself I would read some real books after graduation.

DOC, just because it's your birthday doesn't mean you're gonna get off easy. If you want a plate of birthday nachos and to avoid Punishment you need to come and post more.

[/tough_love]

Happy Birthday, Doc!

Happy Birthday! Wombat!

We have all sprung from your brow like Athena from Jupiter's, although hopefully in a more pleasant and less painful way.

Do they make Animal Nachos? Like Animal Crackers, but made of tortilla chips? May you eat them for every meal.
