Be sure to check out The New Adventures of Bub and Bob. Should be updated regularly as I’m stealing all the artwork.


The New Adventures of Bub and Bob 01

Lately I find myself actively disliking actors, actors who are seemingly being embraced by Hollywood. This is a new phenomenon – I’ve always liked certain actors, predisposing me to see movies they starred in, but lately I’ve begun to actively hate certain actors for seemingly no good reason. I see commercials for movies and my gut reaction is a strong DO NOT WANT!

The three chief offenders are:

Exhibit A. Seth Rogan

Exhibit B. Jonah Hill

Exhibit C. Jason Segal

I’m not sure what I dislike hate about these fellows jerkoffs the most, be it their lack of acting prowess or their general hideous appearance. They exude an aura of schlubbiness – I realize this isn’t a word in itself, with Firefox dutifully informing me of my alternatives in chubbiness, grubbiness, scabbiness and shabbiness – but as all of those terms apply I’m afraid I cannot single one out as being my correctly spelled intention. So, in conclusion, please stop putting these guys in movies I would otherwise want to see (I’m looking at you Kevin Smith and Greg Mottola.)

Watch this

then read this.

Ivy is the sweetest cat in the world. Cuddle-Puff is the cutest. Together they are the best.

I hate, hate hate hate it. Used to like it – read it every other day. Then they rolled out version ‘2.0’. Horrible. Displays stories in a bunch of separate boxes – how am I supposed to know which boxes have been updated? Embargoed! So whatever right, I’m curious to see whats shakin’ in the D&D world so I decide to just deal with the new/updated/godawful format change… so I’m straining my eyes to read the little yellow-on-black boxes and it feels the need to redirect me to random stories? Flat-taxed! Is there no other site willing to compile news regarding Dungeons and Dragons and present it to me in a manner which is fashionable, functional, usable and punctuable? Monopolized!

So my proposal is as follows: If we’ve found ice, or even better, liquid water on Mars, lets take advantage of it right away. Lets get started tomorrow. Granted, we don’t have the technology right now to get a swarm of robots on that dirtball building CO2 pumps but we could certainly contaminate Mars with some germs, right? We probably have already, but I’m talking about a concentrated effort.

Specifically we should figure out which microbe can thrive in the martian environment. Oh wait, we have. Then we cram as much extra information as we’ve got into this microbe’s DNA. Not one individual microbe, no, we engineer as many different strains as it takes. We seed Mars with a wealth of genetic information… either it will work, and we’ll have created alien life (our duty if we are alone in the universe), or it won’t and we’ll be no worse off… The extra DNA would serve double duty – to facilitate useful mutations and to preserve the ‘work’ which has been done through evolution on our planet. Forget looking for life on Mars – just put some there.
