the words. what are the words?
if you've ever seen that dreary old Russian movie SOLARIS about the dude who sits in his space station and starts freaking out seeing his dead wife which it turns out is all part of this abstract alien intelligence fucking with the puny human brains? Well what I'm experiencing is kinda like that only having more to do with not having enough time to do the funny stuff that nobody really thinks is funny except me. I'll give you some examples.... more so as a record to prove that I thought of them first in case anybody else beats me to the punch.
*Steve Dunkelburger Costume Contest*
there is this funny picture of Steve Dunkelburger.. who if you havent seen it is this Rubenesque gentlemen perched awkwardly on a stool holding a haunted typewriter with an alarming expression on his face. My idea was to draw on this photo an ironic costume and send it over the artist listserve asking folks to email me back their own modified dunkelburger costumes. post results, hilarity ensues.
*Doc Boner's Awesome Tacoma: The Helm Whale Revisited*
this would be a parody column of the popular david boe exit133 articles. Basically rework the Helm's cardboard whale in a baroque/architectural rendering where the whale is fighting a giant squid to the death... thrashing about wild eye'd... instead of the beached leviathan that was the actual reality.
*Harold LeMay is Really Insane*
write an article laying out bizarre Harold LeMay quotes next to a picture of the dude with his thick glasses and Amish beard. Make the case how a dude who buys one car a day and has the largest private collection of cars (Freudian emphasis on the sausage grinder collection) is sick in the head. The dude didn't want his car collection sold off after he kicked the bucket so now the public taxpayer is now on the hook for this whimsical perversion.
A Certain reporter for a certain Tacoma news publication sends me all the crazy shit people send in to his newspaper for media attention. I mean this is really crackpot, kook, noodles crazy stuff. Today he sent me this book about the end of the world after an attack from the red planet hamburgertron or whatever. I love that stuff. I think it would be fun to scan stuff in and share it with the world in a way a reputable newspaper would never do.
anyhow thats just the top of the ice burg... material that is ready to go TODAY but isn't thanks to the friggin' TIME. You folks really miss out when I'm busy. Else it all just says in my head and comes out in random laughter and people are all "hey what's so funny" and it's just too cumbersome to have to explain it. whatever. it's past my bed time. later.

|Yeah, poor RR, sounds like he's got alot of irons in the fire.
Maybe harness some of that creative energy of yours to put towards finding a way to turn that arrow of time around. Stupid entropy, makin' life harder than it needs to be, increasin' disorder, messin' up my checkbook, suckin' my free time into the bottomless black hole of responsibility. . .
. . .can't mother nature chill the hell out and give a guy a break?

meanwhile (for washington tech people):
"Microsoft announced this week its first-ever layoffs, which brought out the naysayers and predictors of doom, but not me. I see cutting these 5000 jobs as good, with my only caution being that it really should be 20,000 at least. Fifty thousand would be better."

|RR, maybe its your calling to start Tacoma's own version of THE GLOBE when it was still all alien autopsy and woman gives birth to her own twin sister - except all Tacoma-centric topics. A mix of imagination and just enough facts to keep people guessing.
Add sales probably won't pay for it but subscriptions might.

|Maybe when The New Takhoman owner's die I'll buy it up and go in that direction. There are some business owners in downtown that I think are from other planets.|

|BRAD PITT CONFESSES "I'VE FINALLY COME TO MY SENSES!" AND RUNS INTO THE OPEN ARMS OF ANGELAJOSSY!|
by AngelaJossy on 1/24/2009 @ 9:44am
|Pitt explains, "When my psychic told me I would marry the love of my life Angelina Jossy I thought she mispronounced her last name. I guess I jumped the gun a little." |
Sadly it was too late by the time he discovered his error. Gerard Butler had already stolen Jossy's heart. The love birds had already eloped to his beautiful homeland in Scotland.

|I agree, 'Nachos, and most likely from the planet Uranus.|

|AngelaJossy is not the avatar for Angelina Jolie?|

|my favorite picture of Angela J. is where she's dressed as a pirate looking out a boat window holding a spyglass.
somebody please post that pic here so mofo can offer his artistic analysis.

|Ha! The Weekly Volcano is working on something similar to this concept called What the Deuce? Stay tuned. ...|

He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
