Comic Review: Dominic Deegan

March 23rd, 2005 Comments off

After much procrastination I finally starting reading Dominic Deegan: Oracle For Hire. I started reading it because Damion kept quoting and making references to it. It started in May of 2002 and is updated mostly daily (from what I’ve seen in the archive). I’m only into July 2002, but I’m enjoying it. The comic is funny and artistically is definately a unique style that you don’t see too often. I won’t tell you much about the characters or the plot so go read it.


The hardest part of writing

I’m working on my Ethics paper that’s do in the next 12 hours, but I’m at the hardest part now. I’ve been reading and doing research, but I have no clue what to write about. I just don’t know how to get started. Once I have some clue, or statement I’ll be set and three pages will be nothing to whip up. I hate writing for this reason alone.
Stage 1 of jury duty is complete, and the jury has been selected. I happen to be one of the lucky people to move onto the next stage and appear at the trial Thursday. Here it is spring break, and I’ll spend the beginning of it just sitting in court.
The new gaming machine is up. It runs mostly ok, will probably do better once I get these fans installed. Can’t wait to play around with burning DVDs and get crap off my hard drives.


Little late on the update

Whoops, got busy with midterms. So recap of last weekend. New computer, very awesome. I read the comic Game Under. Not a huge fan of it, but it did have nice stories, and I’m a fan of the artist’s style. Check it out for yourself though, 31 comics on a fast server.
Went to see Constantine on Saturday. I don’t care what Kershaw has to say about it, it was a decent movie. I’m amazed as the amount and detail with the computer graphics, and the fact that it wasn’t overly done either. And the music didn’t distract you from fight scenes either. It is not meant to be a Blockbuster hit, it is not meant for uptight people who just want to rip apart a story. I suggest going, it was worth the $5.
Sunday was the concert. Here it is early Saturday morning (past 4:30, I should probably head home soon) and I’m still happy that I went and saw three friggin’ awesome bands. I’m not knocking Chevelle at all that put on a great show, but I went to see Crossfade and Strata, which both impressed me. Oh, and fuck Future Leaders of the World.
So that about wraps it up. Just fixed a mail problem I didn’t know existed, but the resolution for that enabled a new feature that I like. Oh, and UT2004 is fun.


Too tired

I was going to make a long post with reviews of all various things from the weekend. However, after the concert I am ready for bed. Will update Monday afternoon.


Another comic review

As the snow watch contiunues (just a little over 5″ now), I have read all of Punks and Nerds and decided to add it to the list on the right and share with you, my friends. I do suggest at least looking at a couple of the issues (like the 0040-0050 range).
The best way I can describe it is as a comic that reaches out to the college student crowd. Constant references to shows and things from our childhood (Doug, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles….). It’s good with funny and stupid humor….and of course sex. Check it out.
It seems that the creators are also involved with the DISPOSABLE PARTS project, a book (I assume) about robots, drawn by over 10 known artists (MacHall and AppleGeeks to name a couple). Should be interesting.
