The Dad List


Okay, for the most part, the above list reads like a correspondence school commercial starring Sally Struthers, minus the bookkeeping and TV/VCR repair courses.




Back to the handwritten blog, above:  Writing the more mythic (if not 100% factual, the Truth is in there) parts of The Dad List, it occurred to me that my dad is like The Most Interesting Man in the World, but ironically doesn't like Dos Equis beer.  He likes other beer of arguably higher caliber.  I should know; I'm his son.

Anyhow, Happy Birthday to my dad!

(Transmitido en español por SAP)


This is essentially Webcomic #21a, but in Spanish.  Google Translate translated the first two panels.  The combination of partially-remembered high school Spanish from last century and an intro Pimsleur course I took in 2009 enabled me to write the last two panels.

Diachronism: Time Management






This was more-or-less a stream-of-consciousness rant I wrote early this morning (late last night).  Okay, I mostly strung together a bunch of self-truisms and some absurdities for which even I can't vouch.  Maybe that means that I should add prophet to my list of skills and qualifications, but I'd rather stay in the present tense than predict the future.

Diachronism





Hold on a minute:  Handwritten manifesto + brainwashy Crystal Pepsi commercial = Did I just start a cult?

New Webcomic Format!


We'll see if this new DeRamos.org Webcomic format, as a four-panel comic strip, is any better (not to be confused with Eddie Vedder).  This is just a preview of #021; we'll be back with some random-topic speech bubbles in the near future.

Hypothetically Good Phonorecords


If I actually practice what I preach, you'll hear the results at my band the Society of Gloves' website.  Thanks to the TuneUp app, you can read what I've been listening to lately (in iTunes only) at the Twitter profile for FoodBoozeTunes.  I recently bought a lot of nine-volt batteries for our effects pedals; I think that's a good start.

Venn Diagram: Narcissism


I don't quite remember what I was trying to get at when I first wrote this in my notebook, on December 17th of last year.  Basically, I think I'm (sarcastically? facetiously?) accusing everyone with any sense of self (an "ego") of being a narcissist.  Those who are aware of their narcissism are dubbed meta-narcissists.  Perhaps a meta-narcissist who is kind to others does so because he/she feels superior to others (or so the silly logic goes).

Also, you can wear this Venn diagram:

Subconscious Superpowers


If I get my act together, maybe my animated-self can give tutorials how to achieve superhuman status in (more-or-less) lucid dreams, at Videramos.

Currently on My iPod Shuffle


I'll probably type, edit, and elaborate (i.e., "Jimmy Chamberlin's drums for the win!") sometime soon at FoodBoozeTunes.

What albums and/or songs would you choose to fill one gigabyte of space?  (That's about 13 single-disc albums' worth [or so] of mp3s.)

Happy New Year!!!


Yes, instead of epic and legendary, I'll use the adjective mythic (or mythical or mythological).
