Hello Internet. I'm drunk. Like... the second drunkest I've ever been. But... the point is... if I remember one thing from tonight, it's that I wish I was a taxi driver. Because those guys have the best stories of drunk people just trying to get home safely. The end. Enjoy your day. Love, Jer.
The truth has it's boots on
Awww, look at the sad little white house. You know what? I love the U.S. Sure, it's got it's problems, but I've held out hope that no one can really get away with anything forever. More of this, please. And furthermore Mr. W and friends: if you don't have anything to hide, don't act like you're hiding things. That's so very Saddam Hussein.
R.I.P. Oscar Peterson
I know I neglected my Splurd duties by not mentioning the death of Ike Turner. God knows that this is all I really do around here unless something is really pissing me off. So with that out of the way, I was saddened today to hear about the passing of Jazz legend Oscar Peterson at the age of 82 from what is being reported as kidney failure. While I mostly listen to metal, blues and jazz have always had the ability to make my high strung self relax. Oscar was truly the best at the piano.

Why is it always the good ones?!
Damn, the one person who could truly stand toe to toe with Pakistan's dictator puppet Musharraf has been assassinated. Benazir Bhutto was the one that Bush should have been supporting over there, not trying to bolster and keep Musharraf afloat. Seriously. This administration sucks.
Rest in peace, Bhutto, wherever that may be.
Dear Marvel, please stop fucking up your own continuity. No love, Q.
Suicide for Hire!
Hey look! Drow is on this weeks Suicide for Hire!. It's a filler strip but ...shut up, it's cool!
Seriously... talk about rodents of unusual size. Princess Bride has nothing on this guy.
Are you Serious??
Hey buddy, give me a break. It's called a speed limit for a reason.

As a fan of HBO's "The Wire" and an occasional visitor to the city of Baltimore, MD, this is pretty neat.
I need Star Wars fix......

Oil is sticky and covers EVERYTHING
Here's something I found interesting and amusing: A graphical representation of what candidates (from this election and bygone ones) have ties to the oil industry by contribution. It would seem that Guliani had a pretty strong influx of cash from oil companies in this race. I don't even have to tell you who had the strongest oil related ties in the '04 race. Go for the info, stay for the laughs!
Eight comic books to read before you die.
Eight comic books to read before you die.. Awww, no WE3? Or The Maxx? Or Strangers in Paradise? I demand a re-count!
It takes massive stones to try something like this, but to them I wish all the luck. My favorite line is this: "The argument is that Islamic tradition has been gradually hijacked by various - often conservative - cultures, seeking to use the religion for various forms of social control."
The first joke is too obvious
If you've ever made a character sheet and chucked dice to deal damage, the guy who made that possible just died. Gary Gygax just failed his last saving roll against death. Gygax was responsible for numerous atrocities, including but not limited to the unnecessary extension of human male virginity and THAC0. As Dungeons and Dragons was the world's most effective home Satan Worshipping Kit, Gygax has been confirmed as new first prince of hell, and already instituted new torture systems such as having denizens sit in the back of the junior high lunchroom while a smarmy know-it-all with coke-bottle glasses and acne lords over them with supreme power and attractive girls use them as the baseline for everything they find pathetic in the world. Gary Gygax, Dicechucker Prime, you will be missed. update: this just in: even more cheep shots.
Muppets and foul mouthed kids
So, Kermit the Frog lobbies for congress. Check out the guy on the left who can't seem to get it that Muppets break the fourth wall, which is one of their many charms. Oh, did I mention there's to be a Jim Henson biopic? I am giddy. Also, Matt and Trey offer every episode of South Park online. For free. Well played, boys.
Elves of Charity
Hey everyone. I'm trying something new to get my comics out there. The short of it is that I'm going to auction off one-of-a-kind prints of the pages of Elves of Iax, and donate the proceeds to charity. Q and A for this will take place here, or feel free to e-mail me with questions (address below). And please help spread the news. I'd like this to become something wonderful.
FRIENDS 4 EVER!!!! UPDATED?!
Indeed it has! Scroll down to see the continuing adventures of these wacky friends.
Elves of Iax Production Art
It's just a little thing, but I'm really proud of how this desert background turned out.
Just a heads up: The world in general really hates it when you try to auction your artwork and give the money to charity. I am still unable to actually start the auction, but at least it'll be more official when I do. Also, American televised news totally has its priorities straight. I am full of rage and tacos.
