Weekly Pandy!

If you are not familiar with Pandyland, it's a html based web app which produces a randomized webcomic by putting together three randomized panels from a database. Sometimes the results are lulzy. Since I pop into that site pretty frequently, I thought it might be fun to post some of my favorite Pandyland comics here every Saterday!

Enjoy the first Weekly Pandy!

Garfield Randomizer Page

I know I did this once before, but I was messing with the Garfield Randomizer once again which generates webcomics by selecting random frames from old Garfield strips. Here is what I came up with.

Thanks Chipsturs and Congratulations!

YouTuber Chipsturs, also known as The Easter Egg Hunter gave me a huge shutout recently in his 100,000 sub milestone video. Back when Chipsturs put up his first video, (which was about Super Mario bros on NES,) by coincidence it just so happens that I was the first one of those 100k people to subscribe to him.

That particular day I looked up NES reviews on youtube and changed the filter to see what was most recently uploaded. I also discovered Burgerrider that day along with 8bitrob.

Best of luck chipsturs and congratulations on your well deserved success!

TCR to Return Soon

Since appearing on Retro Rejects recently, I have had the urge to return to TCR again. This is something I have wanted to do for a while now, but I have found out that once you stop producing podcasts, it becomes difficult to go back to it. This is especially true since I have two childeren at home and finding time to do anything has not been easy.

The good news is, since it has been a while, I'll have a lot to talk about. The last work I did on TCR was some discussion with Alex Swingle from The Next Round about bringing him on as a cohost. I'm still looking into that. Alex is super talented and would bring a lot of great stuff to the table. Here is hoping we can make that work.

Anyways, one way or the other, TCR will be back with a new episode fairly soon. Best of luck with all your lives. Thanks for supporting the show!

Super Mega Tribute

It's been over a year since produced thier last strip entitled "Dave Cow". In hopes to coax the artist back into working on it, I sent him some fan art recently in the form of imitation SuperMega strips.

If you have never read, it's an anti-comedy webcomic with many strips which are totally devoid of a punchline. If you are familiar with the work of Tim & Eric, think of as the Tim & Eric's Awesome Show Great Job of Webcomics.

In a tribute to that strip, here are my fan art submissions.

#1 - Lemon Snacks

Duck Hunt on MS-DOS

Time for a trip into the stranger parts of the MS-DOS library. This game is not licensed by Nintendo. It's a very early fan game which was distributed on a BSS which was common in the early days of the internet. Hurray for software preservation! Brace yourselves everyone. Here is Duck Hunt.

Critical Failure on Retro Rejects

As you may already know, I was lucky enough to be a guest on the Retro Rejects podcast along with Vintage Video Game Geek and NEScomplex. I had been after Vintage for a guest spot for quite some time now and I must say, the three of us together were able to make some top notch podcasting.

If you have never listened to the Retro Rejects, they do a really high quality monthly podcast about retro gaming memories. They are available on iTunes and a few other places.

Check out the episode I was featured on here.

Garry's Mod Mapping

I created a super simple map for Garry's Mod. The idea was to build a room which would take very little PC resources to run. This project was a great way to get my feet wet with mapping in Garry's Mod and I do hope you'll check it out!

I'm still hoping for the thumb up achievements. Thanks in advance for "Thumbing me" huh huh uh huh.

Check out the map here.
