Hey, when you do a comic like this on a day that a webcomic blogger who’s also a sports fan needs to continue The Streak, this is what results.

(From xkcd. Click for full-sized sports calendar.) I’m sorry, I’m gonna have to call bullcrap on this. People are talking about basketball deep into April, yet switch to baseball all the way until the Finals roll around? Also, I’m afraid American football is likely to be nearly as if not more prominent than baseball in […]

And now, time for this week’s GOOMHR moment.

(From xkcd. Click for full-sized shrinkage.) I know xkcd is one of my go-to crutches for continuing The Streak, but this comic really struck a chord with me. My own laundry habits for a long time have been basically as depicted in the “Third Week” diagram, but reversed. After I do laundry, I keep all […]

I don’t think this post was a great idea in the first place, and it doesn’t help that I had to work on it on school computers where I couldn’t concentrate.

(From xkcd. Click for full-sized synchronization.) xkcd has never been one to shy away from introducing new, out-there concepts, or cause you to rethink the way you look at the world – concepts its sizable fanbase is never slow to leap on. At first glance, this comic would seem to fall into the same category… […]

Catching up with the state of Kickstarter

(From xkcd. Click for full-sized recursive fundraising.) You know Kickstarter is catching on when Penny Arcade and xkcd are talking about it. How big has it gotten in the time since I stopped keeping track? According to Wikipedia’s top-ten list, there are now five million-dollar Kickstarters, two of them finishing after I stopped, plus two […]

The real reason I wanted to post this? The site layout is back to normal! Also, apparently Randall went so far as to create special comics for browsers with Javascript not working right for the Umwelt comic.

(From xkcd. Click for full-sized emotion chart.) Randall Munroe is somewhat of a recluse. Oh, he has a “blag” that he posts on from time to time, but he almost never posts on specific strips there. It can be downright maddening to come across a comic and see it just sitting there, with nothing from […]

They changed it, now it sucks.

(From xkcd. Click for full-sized Mary Poppins act.) I continue not to read xkcd, but when it changed the look of its front page this past weekend, I was willing to accept it as part of the April Fool’s joke of the early version of the “Umwelt” comic that day. When the actual comic (which […]

Don’t worry, I’ll have a less lame excuse to continue the streak tomorrow. Look for an MSPA post, god willin’ and the creek don’t rise.

(From Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. Click for full-sized dick facts.) At some point this year, I fully intend to do a full review of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. Most of the time, I would probably describe it as a modern version of The Far Side, with more off-color humor. This comic, though, I would probably […]

Penny Arcade, xkcd, AND Homestuck in just over a week? It’s the uber-popular webcomic trifecta!

(From xkcd. Click for full-sized round number.) I wanted to take a moment to honor the occasion of xkcd joining the 1000-Update Webcomic Club. I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily difficult to crank out 1000 comics, considering how many comics have done so (after all, it’s hardly 2000), but it still requires a minimum of three […]

Get out of my head, Randall.

(From xkcd. Click for full-sized ghost in the machine.) I’m sick, it’s very late and I’m probably not very coherent right now, but it’s not as late as it was Tuesday night. First a clarification: I stand by most of what I said in my original xkcd review yea so many years ago. I don’t […]

What I Did On My Spring Vacation

I went into Spring Break intending to get a lot of stuff done. I’d been building a backlog of things I wanted to do and I wanted to clear as much of it out as possible. And I did get a lot done. Not as much as I intended, but I intended to do a […]
