On Monday the pet project that I’ve been participating in finally went live!

Library of the Damned.

It’s a blog devoted to the riffing of horrible fanfiction, inspired by the 8 part series done by Ghostcat on her blog. I am to be one of the regularly contribututing snarkers on the site along with Ghostcat, Lyle, and my wife (Indy). We will also be joined by Lara (Also known as the Llama-Derp) who will be contributing occasional pieces as a guest writer until things settle down for her and she can join us as a regular.

My riffing will be featured on Wednesdays, so if you’re one of the 3 people who reads my blog, head on over there and check it out!

We’re always looking for truly awful fanfiction. So if you’ve found a terrible fanfiction and want to see it ripped verb from verb, send it on over to literarytravesty@gmail.com, and we’ll check it out. If it meets our standards of terribleness you may just see it crop up on the website.

The team is also looking for a few good members. We could use another regular writer, and are completely open to guest writers submitting the occasional piece. If you’re interested, send a quick letter of interest to the email above, and if you’re so inclined, a writing sample would be appreciated too; especially if we don’t already know you from the YSaC team.

That’s the end of my shameless plug! I may subtext a link to my latest riff on the Wednesday craft spot, but we’ll see how I’m feeling.

You are using an insecure browser!

I was informed by Worpress recently that my browser is insecure.

… *Snerk*

I just… too many jokes.

I’ll let you all quietly snark to yourselves about that phrasing.

This cop-out blog post brought to you by my unfettered weekend of joy.

-Confusion is a state of mind, or is it?

This week I’m spotlighting a comic that pretty well speaks for itself: XKCD by Randall Munroe.

XKCD one of the collection of the low-drawing comics that I follow.  I call it low-drawing due to the rather lack of much drawn material.  Most of it is stick figures, equations, and other errata.  However, since the content is so good I wouldn’t really call this low-drawing a particular lack in the comic itself.  Almost the lower focus on drawing highlights the actual humor and content of the strips, making the whole package better for it.

Many of you are probably already familiar with XKCD in some form or another.  Many will be weekly followers of the M/W/F update schedule; while others will undoubtedly have seen the comics posted somewhere online and not known where they came from.  But, since it’s such a high profile comic these days, odds are you’ve seen at least one of the strips.

Odds are you've seen this one, it's among the most widely posted comic that I've seen online.

XKCD is a comic of many topics.  Geek, science, love, abstraction, tables, political, social commentary, and on and on.  Many of the comics do feature the standpoint of a physicist; which is understandable given that the background of the author is in applied physics (At least I assume it’s applied since he worked on robots).  Those who grew up with a science background will have a very deep appreciation of a lot of his humor; but beyond science humor XKCD has a lot to offer just about any reader.

Really, like all comics I could sit here and type a few pages worth of gushing about how much I like the comic; but comics always seem to speak better for themselves.  You find out the most about a comic by reading it.  So go read it.

RumpyBottomed Walrus Emasculator

I recently had a discussion with the other denizens of YSaC the other day when weird search terms came up.  Undaunted I decided to search for the first, weird thing I could think of.  RumpyBottomed Walrus Emasculator instantly sprang to mind.  Those of you who know me, or at least know OF me, are probably unsurprised at this.

Anyway, there were absolutely NO results for it.  For shame, internet!  What have you been doing these past few decades if not populating yourself with oddities such as this?

In any event, I have now titled and typed “RumpyBottomed Walrus Emasculator” several times on my own blog.  Here’s hoping that the term will no longer come up with zero results on a Google search.

The RumpyBottomed Walrus Emasculator also gave me a way to burn a days worth of blog post by talking briefly about it.  Yeah, I’m lazy.  Lazy like a fox!

For all your Walrus Emasculating needs, buy Scamco’s RumpyBottomed Walrus Emasculator, now with Shae butter; whatever the heck that is.
