Corp-Speak: Phrases I hate Part Two

This weeks detested saying:
"touch base"

i.e. Call me so we can touch base regarding this month's TPS reports.

Fuck your ugly mouth.

I Have No Idea Why I Am Drawing This Comic

Well, that may not be entirely true. I have theories, and pages upon pages of speculation. Maybe it's just to keep me occupied. Maybe I'm trying to isolate the negative parts of my own character and contain them in a way that they become fun and harmless.

I think this addresses the paradox and dangers of self-effacing artwork. Do I actually want people to think I'm a prick? Aren't I afraid of this comic becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy?

The short answer is No, and No. With very limited exceptions I have avoided making any reference to any actual event or person anywhere on this site. I'm a very self-conscious person by nature, and unfortunately, there is an ingrained sense of self-absorption that comes with that kind of territory. What I'm trying to say is that I am more than occasionally insensitive to other people's feelings. For this I apologize. But that's kind of what this comic is about.

First Drafts...not spell checked.

The boat pulled up to the side of the place, the sound of the engines fading softly. JD and Demetri leaning cautiously over the railing; Bunny waiting anxiously for orders to do anything at all.
The captain crept up behind them and spoke in grizzled seaman broken english.

"The service entrance under the platform is the only entrance we can access with a boat this size."

"Lead the way please," Demetri responded idly, his attention on whatever it was he saw in that viewfinder.

Bunny watched as the platforms shadow surrounded the skiff. A goliath of concrete, the rigs underbelly consisted of a series of pipes and tubing; 21st century space age tubing, obsolete as hell and caked with barnacles. Waves lapped up at the struts holding the edifice, making a sound like dogs lapping at milk rapidly and in tandem.

A pillar of carbon nano-fiber plunged into the water at the center. Bunny remembered the massive tower like a turret extending from the top like a beacon. He thought it must be the tool that they used to get the oil.

To the far end of the belly was the service entrance as the captain had described it. They chugged along, the little skiff's battery chirping as if with the strain of it's journey. The entrance was a little platform touching the ocean's surface. A little basket cage and a powwerlift that looked as if it could hold most of the crew whent hey returneed. If Demetri made his decision they would likely be back with a almost a hundred. Bunny tried to picture it. His first big picture, and all the way out on what might has well have been a haunted mansion at sea.

Yes We Can

paraphrase Corinthians 13:11:

"When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways."

I Like the Violent Femmes

They are fun. They take angst and make it fun. I appreciate it. Obviously.

Wednesday, January 7, 2009


An offhand comment from an uninformed colleague nearly set me off - setting me up instead for another night of financial angst-ridden insomnia. Not being able to sleep upsets me even more than sleeping to much, and as is usually the case when this happens I find myself in front a computer futily trying to purge my addled brain of existential worry.

But this morning it's okay because this cheered me up:
