Tex Avery Wallpapers!

An entire page of Tex Avery wallpapers to enjoy!

I (heart) cheese!

Well, here's another creation from the ol' sketchbook...yeah, I don't really have much of an explanation for this one. Looking at it now though, it kind of reminds me of Monterey Jack from the Rescue Rangers. There's just something about a fat guy in a devil costume and a shirt that reads "I (heart) cheese"!
Actually, here's a pretty interesting site that I found pertaining to Rescue Rangers [Link]. It has modelsheets for most of the characters that are pretty fun to look at. Here's some for visual reference of Monterey Jack!

Breakfast Punch-Out!

Wow, this is actually a little creepy. Pretty fun though! Mike Tyson's Punch-Out was probably one of my all-time favorite games for the original NES.

More random sketches

Well, here's a couple more sketches that I dug up. Keeping with the Lucha theme from the last post here's a little Lucha sketch that I found in my sketchbook's.

Also, here's a bonus sketch that I found in a sketchbook from when I was in middle school, probably 8th grade judging from the material. Just goes to prove that I've always been a bit satirical. Hope you enjoy!

Flash is Fun!

If you need to download the Flash player just click on the post title, or you can just click here.
I'm a pretty huge fan of cartooning & animation, especially of Flash animation more recently (well, since the mid to late 90's at least). I just love the style's that are achieved with some GOOD Flash (believe me, the web is full of some pretty crappy stuff!). Anyway, I don't have much time today so I just thought I'd direct you to a couple examples of some pretty good Flash cartoons. Hope you enjoy!
Here's one from long time animation veteran Chuck Jones:

Here's an interesting take on Lewis Carroll's

as well as Shakespeare's 'Midsummer Night's Dream,' Homer's 'The Siege of Troy,' and Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'.

Also, from Jorge Gutierrez, El Macho!

Plus there's always everyone's favorite Luchadore...Strongbad!

Actually, here's some pretty disturbing pictures that I found out on the web for your enjoyment...these people have waaaaay too much time on their hands!

(If any of these photo's belong to you and you would like them removed please contact me, otherwise...thanks!)

Name This Blog

Alright everyone,
I've never been quite satisfied with the name of this blog and I'm thinking it's about time for a proper change. Drunken Poetry Jam just doesn't seem to do the site justice, it's basically grown above and beyond just the drunken poems. Since I can't seem to think of anything myself I've decided to offer a one month sponsored subscription to totalfark.com for the best Name suggestion. For those of you who don't know what that is...Read This. In approximately two weeks I'll make a decision based on your idea's. Post your suggestions in the comments section and I'll let you know!

The 86 Rules of Boozing!

  1. If you owe someone money, always pay them back in a bar. Preferably during happy hour.
  2. Always toast before doing a shot.
  3. Whoever buys the shot gets the first chance to offer a toast.
  4. Change your toast at least once a month.
  5. Buying someone a drink is five times better than a handshake!
  6. Buying a strange woman a drink is still cool. Buying all her drinks is dumb.
  7. Never borrow more than one cigarette from the same person in one night.

Some other highlights...

12. Never, ever tell a bartender he made your drink too strong.

23. Girls hang out, apply make-up, and have long talks in the bathroom. Men do not.

28. If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to drink in a bar. Go to the liquor store.

31. If you have been roommates with someone more than six months, you may drink all their beer, even if it's hidden, as long as you leave them one.

34. If you bring Old Milwaukee to a party, you must drink at least two cans before you start drinking the imported beer in the fridge.

44. Being drunk is feeling sophisticated without being able to say it.

45. It's okay to drink alone.

58. Fighting an extremely drunk person when you are sober is hilarious.

69. If there is ever any confusion, the fuller beer is yours.

We are a team of full grown LITTLE PEOPLE plus 1 large player, probably the worlds smallest basketball team. Basketball like you have never seen before.

Sorry but I thought this was hilarious!!!

Random Sketch o' the Day

Going through one of my sketchbook's I ran across this character based upon Hunter S. Thompson...I thought it was rather fitting given the events concerning his passing recently. Plus I dug up my vintage copy of Hell's Angels for another read so it's been on my mind lately.

I've got loads of character sketches stashed away that I'm going to be going through and posting from time to time...after getting hooked on Drawn! I've been feeling a little inspired lately. Hope you enjoy! Encouraging comments are more than welcome!!! Also, I've been stuck working a lot of Overtime lately and haven't had much free time, but I promise another poem sometime in the near future.

P.S. Just had this thought...if anyone would be interested in purchasing merchandise with a full-color, finished version of this send me an e-mail. If I get enough requests I might just go ahead and make it happen!

Ebay listings gone wrong...Vol. II

Ebay listings gone wrong...Vol. II!!!

I think I see MC Hammer in my bread. Do you see it?

(Click picture to go to ebay listing for this item)

Seriously, what is this world coming to??? Already 15 bids for this item, current bid at time of this posting: $100 USD

What kind of intelligence do you have?

Your Dominant Intelligence is Spatial Intelligence

You've got a good sense of space and how the world around you looks.
You can close your eyes and "see" images. You have innate artistic talent.
An eye for color and shapes, you're also a natural designer.
Since you think in pictures, visual aids and demonstartions help you learn best.

You would make a good navigator, sculptor, visual artist, inventor, architect, interior designer, or engineer.

The "Uncyclopedia"

Uncyclopedia is an encyclopedia full of misinformation and utter lies. It's sort of like Congress. It serves absolutely no purpose, so feel free to add to the misinformation right now! This is possibly the only factual page, before everything turns into a puddle of utter confusion and disarray.
