Deee-troit Basketball!!!

Now that I started to think about tonight's game I figured I might as well put together a fun Piston's post so here goes...

The Interplanetary Pistons

Earlier in the season I went to a couple of Piston's games at the Palace of Auburn Hills and during halftime they would show these cartoons on the PalaceVision screen that were like those old Globetrotter cartoons, after a little bit of digging I was able to track them down on the net so without further adu...

All Apologies

My apologies to anyone visiting the site today that got hit with a Bravenet pop-under page. I was checking out their traffic exchange program and didn't realize that it worked by creating a pop-under window. I hate crap like this and I sincerely apologize to anyone that got hit with it today. It won't happen again!!!!

On another note...GO DETROIT PISTONS!!! We need a big win tonight baby, it all comes down to this!

Posty Goodness!

Hopefully all of the posting today make's up for the lack thereof the last couple of weeks. Sorry there hasn't been much going on here but work, and just life in general has been so hectic the last few weeks I didn't get much time for blogging. I hope things will slow down a little for the summer so that I can get to doing some drinking and posting again. As always comments are more than welcome and if you've got any suggestions, strange links, funny photo's, drunken poems, etc. that you'd like to see on here go ahead and send'em my way!

Thanks for stopping by...McBoozo the Clown

P.S. Here's a few more sketches from the 'ol sketchbook that I dug up and scanned in.

This was my first attempt at using a Brush Pen and Prismacolor grey tone markers. It was an early concept sketch for the McBoozo character.

A random scene from the sketchbook featuring McBoozo & Lobster Boy plus some circus Crocigators!!!

Another McBoozo character sketch...The World's Strongest Man!

Sketched during a meeting at work.

Just a random character sketch from the sketchbook.

Developed in conjunction with a number of other characters for a new series...maybe someday it'll see the light of day. He's called Mobey Dick.

I think this was supposed to be an easily excited French or Cajun chef???

Just another random character sketch.

Richard Kiel Has A Posse!

If anyone would be interested in t-shirts with this image on it send me an e-mail, I can't print this through cafepress but if there is enough interest I may do an actual run of shirts. Probably would end up in the $10-12 range.

Underworld by Kaz

Kaz's Underworld is another great comic strip worth checking out. Think of a Peanuts for paranoids, a Pogo for punks, or a Popeye for the postmodern. Above all else, think funny — real gut-bucket, hold-your-bowels funny. Of course, you’re thinking of Kaz’s three collections of his Harvey Award nominated weekly comic strip, Underworld! Underworld has the look and feel of a classic comic strip, but upon closer inspection, it’s every bit as warped, biting, and hilarious as today’s jaded audiences demand. Underworld is stuffed with almost-parodies of famous comic strip characters, featuring a healthy dose of cigarette smoking cats, cute little saccharin-cuddly creatures, grim reapers, media-damaged kids, and more — all destined for a sardonic smashing in typically-acerbic Kaz fashion. Woeful whimsy and vicious pathos have never been so goddamned funny!

Kazimieras G. Prapuolenis

The artist formally known as Kaz entered the scene through Raw magazine in 1980. It would prove to be the arrival of a new genre. Kaz combined a mix of punk rock and classic themes into his own, very recognizable 'atomic' style. Kaz is a very versatile artist, and his work has been published in an impressive range of magazines (East Village Eye, Weirdo, Eclipse and of course Raw). Also he published various albums of his own, including three serials: 'Underworld', 'Buzzbomb' and most recently, 'Sidetrack City'. In addition, he co-published some work with various underground comix artists, and has illustrated some trading card sets. Kaz attended The School of Visual Arts in New York and studied comics under Art Spiegelman while a student.

Taste in Music?

I don't know that this is really all that accurate but I thought it was interesting all the same...

Your Taste in Music:

Classic Rock: Highest Influence
Progressive Rock: Highest Influence
80's R&B: High Influence
90's Hip Hop: High Influence
90's Pop: High Influence
Alternative Rock: High Influence
Gangsta Rap: High Influence
Hair Bands: High Influence
Old School Hip Hop: High Influence
80's Pop: Medium Influence
80's Rock: Medium Influence
90's Alternative: Medium Influence
90's Rock: Medium Influence
90's R&B: Low Influence
Adult Alternative: Low Influence
Country: Low Influence
Hip Hop: Low Influence
R&B: Low Influence

In reality R&B, Hip Hop, & 80's Rock definitely hold more influence in my tastes than 80's or 90's Pop ever would!!!

Corporate Lingo

Here's some Corporate Lingo to brighten your day!

You'll need it to replace three people who just left.

You're walking into a company in perpetual chaos.

You'll have the responsibilities of a manager, without the pay or respect.

Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want and do.

I've used Microsoft Office.

I blame others for my mistakes.

I've changed jobs a lot.

The minute I find a better job, I'm outta there.

Like, I'm gonna hold my breath waiting for your form letter thanking me "for my interest and wishing me luck in my future career.

Technical Difficulties

It looks like my Pac-Man post yesterday wasn't quite working the way it was supposed to...a couple of my links didn't work correctly (such as the download for "Pac-Man Fever" or the interview article) but I think I have everything fixed now. Shoot me an e-mail if you notice anything strange, thanks!

Little Mac's Boxing Diary!!

Little Mac's Boxing Diary!!
Come on, I know you remember spending countless hours trying to beat "Iron Mike" in Little Mac's shoes??? Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! was probably my all time favorite 8-bit NES game ever (and still is as a matter of fact, I just got a copy from ebay and spent a couple hours after work playing it).
Well, did you ever wonder what Little Mac thought about after winning his first title bout or about the time he had to fight a 10 foot tall purple Russian with a drinking problem? X-Entertainment presents Mac's sixteen page diary detailing his journey through each of his fights. Find out what he thought about Glass Joe, Bald Bull, Super Macho Man and all the rest. See who he considered 'tough' and who he thought was 'ugly'.
This had me cracking up and waxing nostalgic, especially after a couple hours of playing it brought back all the memories of blistered thumbs and hair-trigger reflexes from my childhood. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

(Props to RedTom for a great Punch-Out!! Fan Page as well!!)
