Match Game '73: All the blanks!

For absolutely no reason, I have transcribed all the questions, answers and blanks of all 119 episodes of "Match Game '73." (Except for the 3 that are missing.) Just the questions and answers, and nothing more. The early episodes are interesting of course, because the show hadn't yet found its footing. Brett Somers didn't make an appearance until episode 11, and she was on the bottom tier! As someone who really likes the 4th-grade-level wordplay of the show, this gives me a big laugh. If there's more interest here or elsewhere, I'll start soon on '74.

The Mad Magazine Fold-In Effect in CSS

At age 99, comic artist Al Jaffee just announced his retirement. Jaffee was best known for his Mad Magazine fold-ins, where folding the page reveals a hidden message in the artwork. Plenty of examples can be found on the web. Unfortunately, they all show the before and after statically, diminishing the magic. There’s a whole generation who may have only seen the fold-ins in this format. So of course I had to create the paper folding effect for the web.

Boston Driving School

Initially this was meant to be a series of comics about Boston drivers, who never cease to amaze me with their inventive ways of motoring, thus making me wonder what exactly the local driving schools were teaching. And then...it kind of morphed into a jumble of random sketches. One day I will redraw these properly, but that day is not today.

Voleflix public domain movie site

I trawled some lists of public domain movies (lots of great film noir) and put together my own version of Netflix. It also has daft Voleflix Originals and rates your taste in movies from your watchlist.

Avocado’n’Toast

To create ‘the ultimate comic strip for millennials’, I gathered a list of tiresome “millennials are killing X” articles and made a page that generates speech bubbles over Jamie Smart’s artwork featuring Avocado, Toast and the delightful Mister Boomer.

Art Is My Middle Name

...is a newsletter I started as a birthday gift to myself. Each installment is a short thought about some topic in art (appreciation, analysis, or creation, and with a reallllly broad definition of art). So far, installments have covered Kurt Vonnegut's advice on appreciating paintings, the moral calculus of watching Watchmen, and East German kids using punk music and fashion to build identities.

My 19th Annual Halloween Cartoon!

Just getting this one in before the sun rises. Yet another mish-mash of miserable machinations all inspired by my unhealthy obsession with Creepy and Eerie magazines. But these are in color so you can see all the carnage without any imagination whatsoever! Happy Halloween!

Printable Totally Real Birds of the World 2020 Calendar

Last year during Inktober, I made up and drew a bunch of fake birds like the Barre Chord Owl, the Ruby-Throated Hoverbro, and the Gin-Soaked Penguin. At the request of a friend, I recently turned all of this into a 2020 calendar that should print nicely on regular old stolen-from-your-office 8.5x11" paper. And then I decided to make it free for the world. [more inside]

Rapper's Delight - Performed by Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant

Just in time for the song's 40th anniversary, I edited together the voices of Siri, Alexa & Google Assistant to make their first ever rap collaboration, a cover of the hip-hop classic, Rapper’s Delight. Yes, this is the kind of thing TV editors do when they're unemployed.

VOLE.wtf - malevole reborn

Way back in 2002 I launched malevole.com, a site for my daftest creative projects, and tried reaching all the cool bloggers with a $10 MeFi text ad featuring an ASCII vole <",_,)~ This seemingly worked, and the site had a few viral hits, but by the end of 2004 I was too caught up in my day job and let it rot. Nearly 15 years later, I've brought it back with a completely new look, some revamped old stuff, and lots more lined up. [more inside]

I'm writing these recipes down and sending them to my mailing list once a week. You can see the first recipe here, with more to come every week for at least the next three months.

H.i.P.O. (Hazardus Interstellar Perfessional Operations)

So, now that the NDA has been lifted, I can share the art installation I was working on that is at this year's Coachella. It's a rocket ship manned by hippos. Of course. I feel a little dumb posting this because it's not "my" project; I was just a cog in the machine. But my boyfriend was art director on this under the two lead artists so I watched this come together over several months, and I was part of the crew putting on the actual show last weekend. I'm still tired. I can't imagine how the leads are doing. [more inside]

Craigslist Spelling Awards Twitter

WAFFLES! A weekly radio show/podcast on varying themes

A different theme each week! MeFite Kitteh and I co-host a Saturday-morning radio show at CFRC in Kingston, Ontario, and for over three years we've picked a weekly theme and explored it through music, in every style imaginable. I've been pushing the archives to podcast (legally, under a SOCAN 22F tariff) for a while now. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or Google Play (search for Waffles Radio)! The site also archives a summer radio fill-in/podcast on video game music and composers, Virtualosos, which ultimately wasn't sustainable.

And as of today, venerated DC punk rock label Dischord Records (Fugazi, Minor Threat) will be distributing the 12" vinyl version of my album! You can preorder a copy here. [more inside]

Men Say the Darndest Things (NSFW-ish)

I designed and animated this video which curates a cringe-worthy selection of funny and sad (and 100% real) comments left for Instagram models. While I didn't use the actual photos, the drawings of the models are probably NSFW, and the language used is... also interesting.
