Just stumbled across this website, and man, remember when websites looked like this? The frames! The marquee!
Me, a child: This book has a naked woman on the cover, it’s naughty!
Me, an adolescent: There’s nothing naughty about the nudity in this series. It’s meant to represent the class struggle.
Me, an adult: The reason Piers Anthony chose to use nudity to represent the class struggle is that he’s a huge perv. It’s naughty.

Right now there are current-events authors who just read this article and called up their agents asking to change their book title.
"A video showed the two executives, both clad in masks, sternly riding the coaster in complete silence. It ended with a message: “Please scream inside your heart.”"
Fiction always portrays demons who feed on your fear, or your anger, or your pain, as horrible monsters, but, you know, wouldn't that be a good thing, really? Eating too much would be bad--we need a certain amount of them to function--but if someone's incredibly angry, and a demon comes along and eats some of that anger, it'll probably make things better.
Now I want to create a character who's a friendly pain-eating demon, who hangs around hospitals feeding on people's pain and reducing the need for opiates.
(Why yes, I've been watching Red Dwarf, why do you ask?)
If you only see one Japanese horror/comedy movie this year, see “One Cut of the Dead”, currently on #shudder. I’m watching it now and it’s brilliant.

I have a great idea for a new indie video game. It’s a roguelike Metroidvania twin-stick shooter with RPG elements, with pixel art and a quirky soundtrack.

Looking to commission a piece of art, that'll eventually go on a T-shirt that will be a gift for my wife.
Any artists out there who can do a good Harley Quinn, the one from the Birds of Prey movie, but in a comic booky style?
Bonus points if you have experience with art that was transferred to a T-shirt and know what needs to be done to make sure it looks good.
my boys are making their own #boardgames! Dingus is prototyping a farming euro about getting crops, protecting then from critters, and then selling your harvest at auction to pay off your mortgage.
The nerd is STRONG in this one.
Here is is the punchline for my whale story. Next week will be all about oysters. Remember you can also read the comic at www.animalsoftheapple.com/comic24.html
Also after my oyster story I'll be shifting to a monthly, rather than weekly posting schedule.

Imma say it one last time for the folks in the back:
It isn't "blacks." Do not say "blacks." It's racist. It's antiblack as fuck and it is a giant red flag. We are a people. We are human beings.
Black *people*. Black *person*.
If I see it, you will be blocked on sight and I will suggest others do the same.
Proud geek. I love games in all their forms, but I'm not a "gamer" in the obnoxious sexist sense. Cyberpunk fan since William Gibson.
