Comic: Hollow Oak University – #16 – Quite the Spectacles

March 25, 2011

You ever radically change yourself based off a comment a girl you have a crush on says in passing? Well, uh, me neither! But Berkeley definitely did. And I told you that Berkeley’s explosive goatee removal would pay off in a later strip. In this case, the next strip. I’d say the situation turned out with the glasses being half full for him. As long as Chester doesn’t mention this incident at any point in the future. And good friends never ridicule each other over something so trivial. Never, ever.

Not a long update this week, as I am very busy preparing for the end of my academic career. Well, the relative end as I try to wrap up my last big commitment. Y’know, summing up what the hell I’ve been doing with my life the past 6 years. No biggee. Biggy? Bigge? Biggee, Biggee, Biggee can’t you see?

Anyways, enjoy the comic!

Song: Stow (Parody)

March 23, 2011

This is a parody of the Ke$ha song Blow

Hahahahaha
Board

Front door cracked
Walkway moving
Pilot’s voice soothing
Row 12 is grooving

Drink that water
Engine’s starter
Tray tables are up
The plane’s taking off

The reading lights are on
Fasten seatbelts sign off
(Your bags about to)
This flight will not be bumpy
So sit and relax

Your bags about to stow
Stow
Your bags about to stow

In your seat pocket

The front and rear
Bathrooms are too there
We’re stewardesses

It’s time, final approach
So prepare yourself

Pressing the button will

Back of the Envelope – #27 – Read the Fine Print

March 21, 2011

Extra tidbit: the contract is for 5 years, 15 million dollars per year. Unfortunately, the deal is totally backloaded and can be voided if A is traded.

Back of the Envelope – #26 – Out of this World

March 14, 2011

Question is though, will Parody come crashing down to Earth or some other planet? I smell some Aliens/Predator/E.T. satire soon! Or it may just be this new cologne I am wearing.

Photography: D’oh!

Back of the Envelope – #25 – Calendar Days

March 7, 2011

True story, I purchase my calendars less on what year they correlate to and more with what theme they are. Cat of the Month FTW!

Hollow Oak University – #15 – Bye Bye Goatee

March 4, 2011

Live and in color! This is like seeing the Obelisk in 2001: A Space Odyssey, isn’t it? Next stop: 3-D! In about 20 or so years. So, does Berkeley look like you think he would? And yes, he did just burn his goatee off. Totally an in-story reason for that. Also, Berkeley likes blowing things up and it was only a matter of time before some bodily harm came to him. You should have seen the comics Sean and I came up with back in the 1950s with the original Berkeley and Chester, Oberlin and Radford. Back then, we didn’t have today’s censors and Obie and Rad were losing fingers and every last body hair they had were routinely catching fire. Also, they were fighting Commies. Who were also called Reds, which is a color, which is the highlight of today’s comic!

Just chugging along in real life. No news is good news except when one is looking for a job. Then it is just no news. But I am keeping myself busy, editing my dissertation, watching TV, loafing, going out to basketball games/poker nights/Lady Gaga concerts. Basically, being irresponsible before I need to be responsible. I am eager to start the next phase of my life, but also reluctant to totally give up on this phase. Is there anyway to combine these two phases into some sort of phaser?
