A Little Comic About Supermarket Patrons

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — ex-boyfriend @ 7:28 pm

When I go to the supermarket I just want to get in and get out, but it never fails, the most obnoxious antics always unfold any time I need to go to the store. Here are a few examples:

Also, my comics are now on Tumblr. Check ‘em out!

WTF Wednesday: Mercedes-Benz BIOME — The Greenest Car Ever?

Filed under: WTF Wednesday — Tags: , , , , , , — ex-boyfriend @ 6:56 pm

Watch out, Tesla! Mercedes-Benz debuted their BIOME concept car at this year’s Los Angeles Design Challenge, and while I’m not a gear-head at all, this is still a really exciting development that bodes well for the future.

What makes the BIOME so rad? Well, for starters, it’s not built; it’s grown. It’s developed in a completely organic environment from seeds — yes, really. You can read more about the germination process here, but H/T to my favorite new site HowStuffWorks.com for first informing me about the car.

Here are the details:

• The stuff the BIOME is made of is an ultralight material called BioFibre, and the car clocks in at a very svelte 875.5 lbs.

• The BIOME is fueled by BioNectar4534, which is stored in parts of the car body and chassis, and can be generated via receptors that piggyback on the photosynthetic process of trees.

• The BIOME’s only emission? Oxygen.

• Even more better? At the end of its usable (or useful) life, the BIOME can be fully composted, OR re-used as building material!

Pretty exciting stuff, even if it may take another 10-20 years for this technology to become the norm. Yay Science!

Thirsty Thursday: Is This Thing On? Plus SCIENCE FTW!

Hey guys! It’s been a while, I know. Let me explai — no, is too much. Let me sum up (thank you, Inigo Montoya):

• Packed up all our earthly possessions
• Drove to Orlando for MegaCon (if you’re ever there and are hungry, do yourself a favor and hit up Hotto Potto)
• Left Baltimore (hi Tony, Adj, George, Becca, Jack, John, Amie, Anna, Matt, Amie, Isaacs, Chris, Heather, Michael, Kirsty, and everyone else!) with the cats and drove to Chicago for C2E2
• Drove to Los Angeles for moving there
• Drove to Phoenix for Phoenix Comic Con
• Drove up & down and side to side on the 10 and the 5 because that’s what you do around here. Cities we’ve been in since include San Francisco, San Diego, and Fremont, CA
• Worked on a bunch of new designs (you should check them out — they are quite fetching, I’m told)

Sounds like a lot of stuff, doesn’t it? Like, so much stuff that one might need a refreshing, frosty adult beverage to recuperate, right?

Well you, my friends, are in luck. Turns out while I was road trippin’ all over this great land of ours, Science stepped up and did the right thing. And that thing was to invent hangover-free beer.

Done cheering? No? That’s OK, I’ll wait.

Done? Sweet!

Now, the *possibly* bad news: Science (Australian Division) achieved this modern miracle by manipulating the electrolyte levels in two commercial beers (light for you ladies, dark for you other ladies. Science is all about the ladies, turns out. You dawg, you!), resulting in beer that was three times more hydrating than untreated beer. And all without altering the taste! Huzzah! But yes, you read that correctly — ELECTROLYTES. Pretty sure we know how this story ends:

 

BAD. IDEA. JEANS. Drink water, too, you guys. Stay safe out there.

Thirsty Thursday: Drinks Across America!

Filed under: Thirsty Thursday — Tags: , , , , — ex-boyfriend @ 6:10 pm

Man, what a crummy week for our country. Our thoughts/prayers/positive vibes go out to everyone affected by the horrifying events in Boston, and to those left disappointed by a certain legislative body’s inaction/capitulation to special interests in DC.*

* Ex-Boyfriend loves and supports all 27 Constitutional Amendments. Please don’t be a troll.

So what’s the best thing to do? Pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, have a nice drink (alcoholic or otherwise), and get right back on the horse — once you’re fit to ride again, of course!

Thankfully, New York Magazine has got us covered, libation-wise: earlier this week they published their 50-state cocktail travelogue — a perfect pairing for those brave souls that each year attempt to visit all 30 Major League Baseball parks in a single summer.

As I went through the list, I was surprised by how many cocktails from the Midwest appealed to my palate compared to the ones on offer from the coastal states. Of the 51 cocktails profiled (no taxation without representation, amirite DC?!), the following states offered the most-delicious sounding (in terms of ingredients) & looking ones:

• Michigan
• Mississippi
• Nebraska
• Nevada
• New Hampshire
• New Jersey
• New Mexico
• North Dakota
• Rhode Island
• South Dakota
• Vermont
• Washington, DC
• West Virginia

Also, no offense to Rye in Baltimore — I’ve had some nice cocktails there — but seriously, Bad Decisions deserves any and all cocktail love bestowed upon Charm City from out-of-town media. John Reusing started the cocktail renaissance that Baltimore has been enjoying the last few years, and all drunken high-fives are owed to that dude and his stellar staff of mixologists.

Anyway, I think my favorite drink of the 51 that were featured might be the Maridel, from the Parlor Market in Jackson, Mississippi:

In a shaker, muddle the cucumber-infused simple syrup and 4 or 5 leaves of basil. Add 2 ounces Cathead honeysuckle vodka and 1/2 ounce lime juice. Shake with ice and double strain through a sieve into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and basil leaf.

Delicious!

p.s. – Denver & Vegas fans! Don’t forget to let me know, either via the comments section here on the blog, our Facebook wall, or our Twitter feed, which bar to meet you at when we’re in your respective cities on the nights of the 29th (Denver) and 30th (Las Vegas)! Your first round is on me if you show up wearing Ex-Boyfriend gear, and we’ll have free swag for folks at the bar whether you’re wearing our fly styles or not!

Mystery Monday: Don’t Call Me — I’ll Call You

call_in_the_night

 

If you like interactive art AND being woken up in the middle of the night, you might want to look into joining Call In the Night, an “experimental radio show and telephone network documenting the nighttime experience” created by Carnegie Mellon student Max Hawkins.

Here’s how it works:

1. Sign up and provide your phone number

2. Once a week, you’ll be connected to another member of the network sometime after 2AM EST and have the ensuing conversation (which can be more or less about anything, but they seem to largely be about dreams and nighttime activities) recorded

3. Select conversations are then included in the Call In the Night podcast

Now, I’m all for engaging in some good, clean dream analysis, but woe be to those who would wake me from my slumber. That said, here’s a recent entry from my own lobes:

I had a dream a couple weeks ago in which I was President Obama, but in the dream, President Obama is an anthropomorphic elephant (irony!) wearing a killer three-piece suit and tooling around the U.S. on a motorcycle in order to better understand the concerns of ordinary Americans and craft policy accordingly. You know, standard POTUS taking-care-of-business. It’s no Denim Chicken, but really, what is?

What do you guys think? Is Call In the Night the sort of thing you’d be interested in doing? If so, why? If not, why?
