Hey, you guys! Alright, this is going to be my last talk about my kid, I promise. You will never believe what I had to do this week. I sold myself to the devil this week, and had to do something that I said I would never do! This week I had to go to story time at the Library. Which, in itself, does not sound that bad to take in a little story, maybe a nap, then a juice box, and the kid would have some fun too. But, when I arrived I found out just how wrong I could be. It was not just story hour it was developmental hour, which means you have to read, plus sing and dance with your kid. Now, just for those of you who don’t know me, none of this is my style, but to add to it I was the only father that showed up to this class. So immediately, everyone else thought I was either gay or my wife had left me. I tried to push the gay thought because it seemed more respectable, but I think everyone caught on to it by the end of class.
Then, as the class started the teacher kept staring straight into my soul while we had to read, which makes a Dr. Seuss book even harder to read. But then things got really weird when we had to start to sing. Now, you know that mouth moving you do at church when you have to sing but you really don’t want to. I tried that, which I thought was going well. Till after the first song and the teacher made us redo it because “Some of us did not get into it”. Damn right lady! We all know the wheels on the bus go round and round, lets move on. So, we had to start all over and I had to look enthused! Lucky before we went to class I was watching the Flight of the Conchords, so I immediately started to softly sing Hiphopopotamus vs rhymenocerous to Z. Which made both of us happy and got the teacher off my back. But I was on a slippery slope now, and as the next song started I looked around the class and noticed that there was an abundance of wiener in the class. So I immediately lead into “To Many Dicks On the Dance Floor”. Now at this point I may have gotten a bit loud because the mother next to me stopped singing and looked around, laughed then moved across the class room. That’s right take your son and make a little more space, lady! Z is here to Party.
I knew I was way too into it at the end of the class when I thought the song the class was singing timed up to me singing “Its business Time”. I swear they all were singing the “Wow wow ya” part for us! Alright I am probably way off in that but it felt right. Looks like we might have another great comic idea. So,while I work on the idea why don’t you guys enjoy this weeks comic. Till next week…
Hey, you guys! It is that time of year again, when the video game companies bless us with a huge pile of new games. You know, I used to hate that the video game market capitalized so much on the Holiday rush but, now I have actually started to appreciate it. With all the new games coming out on the Holidays, I can ask for them for Christmas and not spend any of my money. Also, with Christmas commercials literally starting on October 30th and the equally obnoxious Christmas decorations going up October 31st at 8:01 pm right on the heels of Halloween, I think the new consoles and games are going to be the only thing keeping me sane this year. With Black Friday on the horizon, I know my Thanksgiving is shot and with Christmas around the corner I know Jarv’s Holiday is shot too. Why is Jarv’s Christmas in jeopardy? Well, the people in our town think The Christmas Story is a documentary and with Jarv working at a Chinese restaurant…well, you can figure out the rest. Gone are the days of Holiday enjoyment if you work in the service industry. Speaking of The Christmas Story, I swear if I got that bunny suit for Christmas one more time, I am going to go on a killing spree. The headline would read: 230lb pink bunny murders AA group, witnesses heard him screaming, “I hate quitters”.
Sorry, I went to my bad place for a minute there. I guess what I am really excited about is that I already have a huge back log of games that I bought this year, and now two of my favorite game franchises have released new games. Normally this would be a problem since my wife likes me to play the games I have before I buy any new ones. But, like I said earlier, since I am not buying them myself, it looks like a Win Win for me. New Assassins Creed and Batman Arkham Origins, plus my 8 game backlog. Simply, video game nirvana.
So, I am off now to organize all of my games and prep for all of the new ones to come. Instead of me telling you all about that, and boring you to death with my game ranking system. Lets get you off to the comic. We hope you all enjoy, it till next time…
Hey, you guys! This week I have come to the realization that I need to get healthier. I know I have said this before but I have been kind of disappointed in myself lately. I know I am still ruggedly handsome but not like I use to be. So, I have decided to set some goals for myself. And once I achieve them I can reward myself with either drinks or video game playing time. Now I know that this just sounds like another New Years resolution but that is why I am putting the reward section in. For years my basic New Years resolutions only had the goal to keep me motivated; but with this new challenge, I’m going to see how I will do with a carrot on a stick. Yeah, six-pack abs would be nice, but a six-pack and a six-pack of beer would be even better! Or, even a 5K in under 24 minutes gets me 24 hours of gaming. I don’t know all in the ins-and-outs yet but, let me tell you, I think this time I’m going to be a winner.
I want to thank our friends over at “Punching the Clock” for the motivation. They sent out a contest to get motivated to write and challenge each other that got me started on all of this. So, I thank you, while at the same time I bet the comic thanks you for the humor that is sure to come from all of this. But, enough about me and my transformation into Captain America, lets get you off to the comic. We hope you enjoy this weeks installment, but if you happen to finish early this week hit us up on Facebook and let me know of some goals I should set for myself, and the award I should get. Until next time…
Hey, you guys! Depression has set in for me this week, I have finally come to the realization the Playstation 4 is coming out. While I know this is great news for so many people, this just destroys me. As you may know from previous comics and blogs, Jarv and I both waited quite a while before we got our Playstation 3s. So it still feels new to me, but now that luster is wearing off because of the new one lingering on the horizon. Damn you, Sony! Damn you straight to hell!
I guess my major problem with a new Playstation system is that I am not going to be able to get the new cool games that will be coming out. Why not just buy the new system then you might be asking? Lets just be honest, I am cheap, and have already blown all of my savings at the bar. So, I am stuck with the unappealing option of either waiting a few years (again) until the PS 4 has a price drop or I start eating taco bell everyday until I win one. So I guess my real dilemma is choosing a functioning colon over a PS 3 collection made up of clearance games waiting on a PS 4 price drop. Decisions decisions.
Alright, I am off to start my doom and get in line at T-Bell. So, while I murder my insides I want you all to enjoy this week’s comic. While it may not be the wordiest comic we have ever put together, it is still a good one. So, until next week…
Hey, you guys! Last week I was so excited to get back to helping with the comic, and tell all of you about my bundle of joy that I just jumped right into my stories. But, this week while I was thinking about the blog, I couldn’t help but think “Geez, I hope I don’t become one of those parents that only talks about their kids.” That is why I am going to limit myself to only 3 blogs that have to do with my kid over the next 2 months. With that said, get ready for blog number 2!
Ever since we had the kid, it has been amazing how often people want to share advice with us on how to take care of him. All the added advice got me thinking about playing video games and how I hate when other people tell me how to play every game. For Example: Super Mario Bros. 3. When I play, I like to take my time and make sure I get to everything in each level, you know, collect the coins and really pimp slapping each level. But, I somehow always manage to play the game with someone who tries to beat each level as fast as possible, missing half of the game. People always want to run through the whole level to get the Star at the end, even though they can easily just run fast at the last part of the level and get it too. Then on top of that I hate when people tell me the best level is the Sky World…it definitely is not! If I am going to pick the best level I would say the big world, it was the game changer of its time. I know that this is not the same as how people tell me how to raise my kid, but it does show I hate other people’s opinions. I am fine with you having them, just don’t tell me what they are. Unless, of course, if they have nothing to do with me and if they are funny, then keep them coming!
Alright, that is two down, everyone! Only one more to go over the next few months. I don’t know if I should write another kid-centric blog next week to get it over with or should I save this up and make sure I have a great rant? Looks like I will have to just wait for that loving feeling to hit me. But, until I can figure that out, we want you to enjoy the comic. Until next week,
