Cold Cat (animated short)

A freezing cat seeks the warmth of a woman, but ends up having to rely on city infrastructure. Along the way, there's a bit of Gangnam Style, a hot-tub scene of sorts, and a very brief bedroom dalliance. [more inside]

Twitov, a generative text bot based on your Twitter history

Twitov takes the Twitter history file some lucky folks have been given access to (Twitter says: Rolling it out "slowly" to everyone) and turns it into the brain for a Markov chatterbot. The results are slightly deranged and slightly stupid, but sometimes pretty funny. [more inside]

Houndton Tabby

In anticipation of the season 3 premiere of Downton Abbey, I've begun a series of portraits based upon the memorable characters from the show. Depicted as dogs and cats, naturally. I am selling them as prints in my Etsy shop.

Robot Hugs: A Webcomic

Robot Hugs is the webcomic about anything that's in my head. I do comics about weird animal hybrids, cats, being queer, and other random thoughts. I also often do comics about having depression. I currently update twice a week.

Kittens All The Way Down

After a few years of gathering ideas and saying we would make a webcomic, daisyk and I have started Kittens All The Way Down. It's about strange kittens and whatever else pops into our heads. It updates Saturdays, and we have strips for the rest of the year already queued up.

Heathrow Facts

Future Earth's surviving bacteria colonizing Heathrow Terminal 5. A superior airport experience. A place to replicate & escape the heat.
So: a parody London Heathrow Twitter account, tweeting from an alternate, slightly less benign universe. Learn about Heathrow's sinister cosmic plans for expansion, upcoming Christmas specials, and the airport's occult connections with Ancient Egypt. Brought to you by that 0430 British Airways flight that swoops low over my house every morning and wakes me up.

NEWTOWN

Hey! I wrote another book! My first book Why Not A Spider Monkey Jesus? was about a talking chimpanzee who becomes a televangelist. My new book NewTown is about a cybernetic man-plane battling a con artist for control of an alien spacecraft. Available as a Print Edition or ebook with cover art by Michael Kupperman!

The Compleat Aberree: The Non-Serious Voice of Scientology, 1954-1965

The Aberree was a 'zine, or newletter, published from 1954 through 1965 by a former Dianetics practitioner. The Aberree started out as "the non-serious voice of Scientology" and ultimately encompassed all kinds of spiritual and self-help interests, from psychic phenomena and UFOs to improving eyesight. It shows that convention and uniformity weren't the whole story of the 50s, by a long shot. The Compleat Aberree offers text and images from all 110 issues. [more inside]

Obsolessons

Those who refuse to learn from the past… have obviously never read some of the frankly bizarre advice our grandparents thought fit to commit to print. Obsolessons is here to bring you the questionable wisdom of our ancestors, with the occasional useful tip like how to gild a live fish. Because how could that NOT come in handy?

My debut novel Nothingness

Years in the making, my first novel Nothingness is finally available as an e-book on Smashwords. It's a darkly comic satire on America drowning in delusion. A family is dissolving in a community turning more paranoid with every additional inch of rain that falls. It's like Don Quixote meets Lord of the Flies. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll believe anything. [more inside]

R Money Music Video

I made a music video envisioning Mitt Romney as a rapper named R Money who likes to rap about how wealthy he is. There is an interesting synchronicity between some aspects of hip hop culture and wealthy media figures like Donald Trump and Mitt Romney that make for a funny juxtaposition, I think. [more inside]

Fuck You Broccoli

When I was a child, I hated all cooked vegetables, and a good number of raw ones. But the only recourse I had was to not eat them, and try to finagle my way into somehow getting dessert without eating them. But now that I'm older, it's personal. I still hate them. And I'm going ad hominem on all their asses.

The How Not To Kill Your Baby Official Growth Chart Of Doom

Have you ever read a parenting book that left you feeling inadequate and/or terrified? In other words, have you ever read any parenting book whatsoever? Then you might enjoy my new book How Not To Kill Your Baby, a parody of all those crazy-making pregnancy and parenting manuals. It comes complete with a poster-size detachable Growth Chart of Doom, which will tell you if your baby is big enough to survive an encounter with an angry capybara. For the story of why I decided to write the book, you can read my guest post at the New York Times Motherlode blog. [more inside]

Photos By Nathan

Our three year old just figured out how to use our digital camera and steals it while we aren't looking. These are his pictures. Hipsterized. I ran them through PicYou, and named them as pretentiously as possible. The outcome is more interesting and funny than I could've imagined.

John Roderick Plays a Potluck

This winter, we invited John Roderick of Seattle band The Long Winters and the Roderick on the Line podcast over for a potluck dinner. He played a few songs, told some stories, and ate all of the food. A few of those moments have been put together into a video collection called "More Than Shapes," named for a song and a story from that evening. [more inside]

Da Yooper Times - All da news dat fits.

The Yooper Times is a project my good friend Bill created since he moved to Munising in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula a year or so ago. A graphic designer by trade, I think he may have discovered an additional talent in writing nearly true news about the comings and goings of his new hometown.

Planet Saturday Comics

These are the reflections, in comic form, of a guy (me) who was really apprehensive about becoming a parent--and who, after more than a decade, continues to be surprised by how much he loves it. If the comic is about anything more than that (and it often isn't), it's about the glimpses that we get, as parents, back into childhood and its secret worlds. "But Good Lord, man," I hear you cry, "there's 160-odd pages of this stuff. Where to start?" Links to my favorites inside. [more inside]

ALL CAPS CENTERED - a blog about things that annoy me (and maybe you)

In an effort to stop complaining so much, I decided to create my own personal complaint department on the internet, where I can get it out of my system. My friend David is also posting a few of his pet peeves. If anyone else cares to have posting privileges, let me know. The more the merrier. It's healthy, it's free, and it will make you wealthy beyond your dreams. Perhaps.

Before The Movie Begins

"On leaving the theater, you will be assaulted by baseball-bat-wielding ushers, who will pummel your skull until you forget what you have seen. Any remaining memories are yours to keep and enjoy." I wrote the Shouts & Murmurs in this week's New Yorker. It's a parody of those infernal anti-piracy announcements. [more inside]

...And The Only Prescription is More Sleighbell

Sad Girls On ESPN

A single-serving tumblog (because the world needs more of those) that follows the odd trend of ESPN and other sports networks showing pictures of sad-looking girls as filler whenever the home team is losing. It's not high art or anything, but it's fun. I do the caption writing and theme designing, the sad girls are either my captures or from elsewhere on the internet. My brother daniel striped tiger also occasionally contributes on captions.

I made a WWII Shoot 'em Up for Android

A friend and I decided we wanted to get some Android development under our belt. What better way than to make a retro-themed videogame that harkened back to one of the favorites from my youth? Droidius: 1945 is a short, vertical shooter with old-school graphics and a kickin' rad soundtrack to match. Only a daring ace with skills to match can defeat Hitler and the Nazi Menace. Will you deliver victory? Or defeat? It's at your skillful fingertips!
