It Can Always Get Worse

It can always get worse.
Like, your house could get foreclosed unexpectedly. Your spouse could leave you. Your darling fish, with whom you share every dream and hope and aspiration, could go belly-up.
Or, y'know, you could turn into a tube of butt grease.
Eh heh heh heh heh

Creative Uses of Bread

Bread.

It ranges from completely natural, dense, forcefully stomach-cleansing dark brownish black, to light, fluffy and completely artificial white.

Often something is said to be 'the best thing since sliced bread.'

But what happens...

...When it is bread itself which is best?

Pool

Wow, so that got really weird, really fast.
I apologize. Also, that thing in the background of the first frame, that's kind of hatched but not really? That's supposed to be a fence.

Anyway. There is a story behind this monstrosity of a 'comic.' Mack, my stepbrother, had some friends over today. We have a pool. So there's like five enormous teenage boys running around and screaming and being boys.

I wasn't really paying any attention, until the lawn chair.

We don't even HAVE a lawn chair! I have no idea where it came from.

Anyway, I look up and realize they're backing up, running, and then jumping onto the chair and then off into the water over the top of the chair.

WHYYYYYYYYY

Eventually 'Dave' (stepfather's friend who's staying with us for a week) and I just ended up watching them out the window, giggling to ourselves, like this:

Olive Green

"Olive green" is not the same color as olives.

This bothers me.

Also, olives are an ugly shade of green. "Olive green" is not an ugly shade of green.

Christine O'Donnel

Okay, gonna say this right now: I have no idea who Christine O'Donnel is, but OHMAI is she weird!

As the former head of the clumsily named Savior’s Alliance for Lifting the Truth (SALT), O’Donnell was the Tipper Gore of the 1990s, attending lewd and lascivious rock concerts just to tell stoned, Satanist teenagers that they were going to hell. "Walking through the crowd I also noticed more pentagrams than crosses around the teenage necks," she gasped. At a 1997 music festival in Washington, D.C., the Catholic killjoy “distributed thousands of brochures with information on the failure rate of condoms, on AIDS, on sexually transmitted diseases, abortion, pornography and the movement of former homosexuals.”

WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT
It's like going to Duke and expecting to find some dude in a UNC shirt.
(this one was made in Skitch, which is why the lines are so smooth!)
BUT YEAH
Christine O'Donnel is quite the character... ¬.¬

Do Not Breathe On Me

This is a scene that happens quite a lot, actually, between me and my friend 'Lily:'

Gearing Up For Halloween 2010: story 1

Down here in Nawth Cackalacky, where Duke beats UNC and barbecue is not a verb, we have a little demon we like to call...

the Cackalacky She-Devil!

Naw then, the Cackalacky She-Devil is quite the beastie with a backstory, and hoo dogies it's a tragic one. Here goes...

There was once a beautiful woman with flowing red hair who lived in a small town in North Carolina in the 1920s. She was in love with an amazing man who loved her with all his heart. They never fought, they kissed every day, and he was planning to ask her to marry her.

But one Valentine's day, he never came home. She found out the next day that he had been driving past a graveyard at around 11.30 at night when a band of thieves had stopped the car, then murdered him when they realized he didn't have anything of great value.

Or at least, that's what they thought-- he had a 24 carat diamond ring in his breast pocket.

She was heartbroken at his death. She sank into a deep depression, cutting herself with his razor, burning herself with pokers from the fire. She spiraled down into her own personal hell, until one day when she finally snapped. She dressed in her best outfit, with perfect makeup and intricate hair, then she walked slowly around the house they could have shared forever, lighting candles in all the windows. Then she went around again, methodically setting the beautiful antique curtains alight.

She laid down in the middle of the floor and waited.

Most people, when they die, they either go the Heaven or they go to Hell.

Not her. Restless souls who still thirst for revenge become devils, doomed to live forever on Earth, never getting their revenge.

She became the Cackalacky She-Devil, hiding in trees over graveyards, waiting for cars to come by, thinking that maybe this time, it'll be the thieves coming back to collect their rewards. When a car passes underneath her tree, she leaps onto the roof and punches in the first two windows, yanking the driver and any passengers out of the moving car. She slits their throats with her razor-sharp fingernails and leaves them to die on the cold, wet grass.

The Cackalacky She-Devil has fire for hair, burning coals for eyes, fangs for teeth and flaming bat wings. When she breathes, tendrils of fire come out through her nostrils, and when she walks, the grass turns to ash beneath her feet.

And now for our feature presentation: a mashup of a bajillion photos (listed underneath) into a failure-turned-effing-awesome photoshoppery* of the Cackalacky She-Devil!

Yeah, you know you love it.

Anyway. Here are the websites used for each picture:

Graveyard in background
Girl in tree
Bat wings on girl
Fire on ground
Firy holes in her wings

The rest is my amateur's prowess!

Poor Bones. She just doesn't understand some aspects of society.

A Semi-Visual History of the Google Homepage

...up through 2004.

As I'm sure most people are aware, the face of Google has changed a bajillion times since its debut on November 11, 1998.

However, I didn't think it would look like this:


Wowzas. That is... impressive.

Several days later, on December 2nd, 1998, it looked like this:


Later, on April 22, 1999, it looked like this:


Um, gee.

From October 2nd, 1999, through July 10, 2000, it looked like this:


(the rectangle on top was probably some variation of the Google! logo. Dunno what happened to it.)
Then, on July 11, they changed it a teeny teeny bit and rearranged the text.
On August 15th, 2000, they made the image a little less wide (it's still grey though).
The number of web pages searched changed around for a while, until October 2nd, 2001, when they added tabs...


...which they then promptly got rid of, on November 28th, 2001...


...and then put back, on December 4th, 2001...


Then, on December 10th, 2001, the very first custom Google header appeared! This one celebrates the Nobel Prize Centennial Anniversary, according to the alt text for the image.


Over the next several days, Google Docs is launched (or at least I think that's what the "New! Search 300,000 Documents Using Google!" button means).

July 2nd, 2002, the Google homepage says, "Organize your company's intranet using Google Search Appliance." Over the next month or so, various links to various Google-related things show up on the homepage.

Then, on September 23, 2002, a new tab is added:


Nearly two years later, on March 31, 2004, the tabs are taken away AGAIN, and Froogle is added. I have no idea what Froogle is. Possibly a money-saving device?


August 10th, 2004, the second custom Google logo was made, this time for the Olympics (hosted by Athens that year):



Ten days later, on August 20th, 2004, the header changed again for the soccer events:


The logo changed a couple more times, but the pictures aren't loading so I can't take a screenshot worth anything.

But on August 30th, 2004, it changed to the "Olympic champions" image:


Later that day, it changed back to the normal, un-loadable Google logo.

On December 29th, 2004, the Google homepage featured a link to "Ways to help with tsunami relief."

And that is the end of our semi-visual tour of the Google homepage! Hope ya liked it :)

(if you're wondering, I ended at 2004 because 2005 had 1,000-something entries. Also, this post may seem rather unremarkable and quick to read, but it literally took about two hours of sifting through Google pages to find the ones that are visually different.)

Blogger! Seriously, Come On Now!

For this edition of Radiojestica, I bring back the UNIMPRESSED FACE:


Yes, Blogger, the rumors are true: I am still not interested in either Jesus or some stranger's family. Indeed, I can honestly say that I probably never will be, so HOLY FSM BLOGSPOT, YOU CAN STOP SENDING ME TO THOSE FRICKIN' BLOGS!

*RAGEFACE*

Also, a new development in Blogger's campaign to drive me bananas (this sh-t is bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S! this sh-t is bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!)(sorry, couldn't resist :D):

Built-in, automatically-playing playlists on blogs.


As someone who doesn't really want to piss off her readers (too much, anyway), it doesn't seem like a great idea for bloggers to force their readers to listen to music that they probably aren't listening to. Like, when I'm on the computer, I almost always have music playing in the background. When an ad or a Blogger playlist interrupts my music, it's surprisingly obnoxious-- like when you're in the shower and the water keeps veering from boiling hot to freezing cold, for no apparent reason. It's not really a big deal in the long run, but HOLY CRAP it's annoying!

I am all for having links to songs, or embedded Youtube videos-- because with those, the readers have a choice on whether or not they want to listen to my music (I assume most people probably don't, but whatever :D). But I can promise you now, I shall never, ever bombard you with music without your consent.

Also under the "obnoxious internet noises" category: when you go to a new page, and there's a commercial thingy on the side, and it has sound. Like, come on! Obnoxiousness WILL NOT get people to buy your product! Use your common sense, ad people!

(also under the "common sense" category, I forgot to number the panels. Read up and down and THEN right to left, starting with the first column. Sorry)


Actually, Netflix usually doesn't have sound. They're the ones that make the pop-up ads, which are obnoxious too but usually not vocal. But Netflix is easier to draw than Clorox, so there ya go.

(the page on my computer there is my deviantArt page. In case you're wondering. Also in case you're wondering, only the Frage face and the last laptop were copy-and-pasted-- I drew the dA page (guhhhh rectangles guhhh). TWICE. *applause please*

Anyway.

Blogger, I appreciate your attempts to make people love you, but if you're gonna make a music app, make it so that the READER has to MANUALLY PRESS PLAY before the music starts.

Thank you!

*facepalm*
