Fellow mefi'er hijinx and I just relaunched The Daily Ping in time for our 11th birthday, starting our 12th year of writing every day (on alternating days). Topics are usually light and often center around Oreos, toilets, and TV shows from the 1980s with occasional forays into technology and other pop culture stuff. [more inside]
Click and click again to generate random new years resolutions for 2011, based on a corpus of tweets collected yesterday and today. Sometimes nonsensical, sometimes absurd, sometimes even plausible. "Be more dedicated to achieve. It avoids disappointment. which means you'll have to be." (potentially NSFW) [more inside]
Successful sustainable agriculture doesn't depend on being totally serious all the time, but proper hoeing technique helps. Once you've mastered that you can take care of those pesky hornworms and then learn to move forage animals with greater ease.
A book of fake baby names, full PDF and twitter as well.
A weekly humor webcomic I started a month ago. I can't guarantee anything, but it may have you hanging on the edge of your seat, it may reawaken your purpose in life, it may make you chortle. It's a semi-continuation of my weekly college comics (also on the site). [more inside]
I've been doing this for the past few months to entertain myself and possibly some of the people I work with. I don't know for sure, they may be fake laughing. I thought I'd open myself up for random abuse from strangers & ask what you guys think.
An antisocial network for people who feel like they might like a web site where they talk about themselves, but who don't need a new place to talk to others, or to mention boring things like favorite books and movies and quotations. [more inside]
Pretty much the most important website of all time.
ToonBee allows you to share a story graphically, artistic ability not required. Do you have a story to share? Something to gripe about at work? Want to poke fun at your friends? ToonBee is a place where you can freely express yourself.
KADM just released a new short video by Jason Maran. It could be the strangest love story every told. It might be the most profound tale of sibling rivalry since Cain and Abel. It certainly is NSFW. [more inside]
BASIC DECENCY is a print collection containing the first 44 installments of my webcomic Gentleman's Gentleman, instructing one in the fine art of not being an uncivilized ass. On top of the 44 comic strips, the bonus materials include an illustrated guide to personality types, an awesome Interrobang-created guide to old-timey gentlemanry, an essay by Rebecca Collins on arch-Gentleman Dominick Dunne, and a very embarrassing About The Author photograph.
My current pet project is Marlowe, a sculpted webcomic/picturebook. It follows the life of a well meaning, slightly misguided, slightly shy, rather blobby monster with six eyes and two tentacles. Topics covered include asexual reproduction, (monster) civil rights, depression and lesbian sex(all SFW). Updates Wednesdays.
I've started a photo blog dedicated to funny tombstones. Some photos I took myself; others I'm reblogging from elsewhere (with proper credit, of course.) The only rule is that they have to be real-- no styrofoam Halloween props, and no photoshopping.
If it were still 1997, I would be out a billion dollars in domain names. But seeing as it isn't 1997, I've created three sites in three weeks. Feeding Objects is a site where people...feed objects. It's kind of in the name. Hey, I Found Your Sign is a site that encourages people to remove illegally placed business signs (we buy houses, earn cash from home) from their community. And, finally, My Dictionaric (because dictionaric.com was taken), the call-in podcast where I read the dictionary aloud until someone calls in to chat. I know, I know. I'm really raising the bar for quality internet content.
The Tea Party might have a quasi-mainstream official platform, but it also seems to be a magnet for far right loonies, angry racists, borderline psychotics and those that are simply grossly misinformed. These shirts are for those fringe nutjobs that make the Tea Party rallies so much fun to read about. "Obama is right handed, just like Hitler. That's why I'm voting tea Party!"
Breaking my years of MeFi silence (but I've been lurking all along!), here's a photocomic made up of conversations added to my own photographs. I'm making some efforts in my life to be less neurotic about certain things, and I'm in hopes that sharing these photos and dialogues with y'all will not only entertain a little, but also help me stop being such a hermit and maybe deal with some Stuff.

(They're not brothers.) I know squat about music, and jack squat about investing. But I'm taking every Warren Buffett letter (there are 32) and every Jimmy Buffett album (there are 32...kismet) and breaking them down on a weekly basis. And I'm investing $32,000 and writing a song a month to show what I learn. And, in general, being a jackass about it.
Somehow, Rob Manuel and I were lucky enough to be entrusted with Graham Linehan's beloved characters, so we've tried to pack the game with references to the show and daft memes. Apologies in advance for the rat song getting stuck in your head...
This is my personal blog, where I post all my FPP's for posterity and other tidbits I find amusing or distressing. [more inside]
I made an Undertaking (subway) map for Ankh-Morpork, set about 50 years in the future (from canon “now”). I took some liberties with names of places, given the time gap. For instance, Dolly Sisters has become Dollisters, the Whore Pits has become Harpits. Locations are based on the canonical Ankh-Morpork map.
What happens when you combine a combover and a mullet? Why, a mullover, of course. [more inside]
Every week, I ask the strangers of the internet to submit the title and short description of a video game that doesn't exist. I'll then draw the box art for someone's pretend game and post the results each Saturday. A semi-dorky blend of lulz-y photoshop practice and a heartfelt love for video games.
"The Worst" is a St. Joseph, MO-based weekly pop culture podcast hosted by Kellen (me) and Justin. There's some local stuff that might only be of interest if you're from the Kansas City/St. Joseph/Lawrence/Omaha area, but mostly we keep our topics broad. RIYL: You Look Nice Today, Comedy Death Ray, etc. It's something we do strictly for fun, and we hope the fun is infectious. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Who knew Dante had originally written about a special circle of hell for bike thieves in The Inferno?
"A mixture of fact, fun, fancy, philosophy, and freaks of adventure." Blogging a humor book from 1857 (hot on the heels of this other Victorian joke blog). Updated daily.
