My Top 10 Board Games of 2016

Ever since I started working at Pasadena, discovering and learning new games has become a real thing.  The more I play, the more I think about what games I like. In fact, I have to really narrow my choices if I want to buy a game. I can’t just collect games willy nilly…I have to […]

A Dungeons and Dragons Christmas, Season 5

Every year for the last five years, I’ve been hosting a Dungeons & Dragons Christmas adventure wherein the players either experience something Christmas related, or save Santa, or something like that. Past adventures have included Christmas of the Dead (1st), The Evil that Stole Christmas (2nd), Santa vs. The Mind Flayers (3rd), and An Elder Evil Carol (4th). This […]

Working in Pawnee

IT’S BEEN ALMOST A YEAR SINCE I’VE QUIT THE FILM BUSINESS, which isn’t to say I didn’t like it. But it’s nice to have some variety as well as being able to prove that my experience translates. The coolest part about my current job is my team. I think we’ve hit a real stride in […]

126 Cooped Up 22JUL2011

“Cooped Up”

Sorry for the long delay between comics. We recently got a PS3 and a big ass TV, so now we’re perpetually watching Netflix and playing video games. Who’s got time to goof off on the internet when there’s so much entertainment to be had!

But seriously, remember the old days when you could still watch a show even though the reception wasn’t great? Sometimes you could get a sexy channel and make out just enough picture and just enough sound. Nowadays it’s all or nothing. If there’s no picture, there’s no sound.

A conversation that Inna and I always have is criticizing the companies who advertise “we can help you save money, buy our book or watch our program.” Of course, step one is always to identify what you’re spending on stuff you don’t need. Usually it’s some kind of cable TV. Really? Who NEEDS it? I’m sure you know someone out there who’s barely making it, yet they’ve got all the channels they’ll never need plus the premium channels they’ll never watch. Then you see that they’ve all got fancy cell phones…really?

Anyway, chickens need TV too.

“Brothers Are Wii”

Watching my brothers play video games is pretty hilarious. Things get heated really fast and it’s always the controller’s fault of the game doesn’t go right. I mean, c’mon! Friggin’ thing needs batteries. We tried to rent the new Mario Kart, but it was all sold out everywhere…So, monster truck racing had to do.
Later on my sister rented the Ghostbusters game from the library. Super cool, but too many cut scenes. Anyway, I’m running out of Christmas pictures to make comics from. Maybe we’ll be back to regular old jokes in February.
