Some People Stand In That Darkness

Welp, here's your first look at the Baywatch Movie, so that's definitely still a thing. Clear your calendar for May 26, 2017. You're going to want to see all that bouncing and jiggling opening night.

Christmas Wish List: Bartending Skills

Every day in December (work schedule permitting) I plan on posting one thing from my official DevilDinosaur Christmas Wish List (patent pending). Why? Because I can.

I wish I knew how to make a drink. I know how to make a rum and coke and that's about it. If pressed I can make a mojito if you give me a bottle of mix with instructions on the side. I'd like to be able to make my own old fashioneds, or manhattans or maybe try one of these moscow mules all the hip kids are drinking these days.

I bought a bottle of moonshine from work the other day just because it had a recipe on the side for a boozy cider that seemed totally doable. Make your spiced cider then add the moonshine. Sprinkled cinnamon on top was an option, one I'll probably never use because I don't even know how to sprinkle cinnamon.

Someone gave me a cocktail book for Christmas this year, maybe that's the kick in the butt I need to learn how to make fancy drinks. I'm in my 40s now, if Gilmore Girls has taught me anything you're always supposed to have at least one cocktail before dinner.

Also it taught me that Rory is kind of an awful person.

The Best Part of Waking Up

Holy shit you guys, this is hilarious.

Winter Links

What Pizzagate has in common with every conspiracy theory. Have you read anything about Pizzagate? Man these guys are absolute nut bags and generally speaking I'm pretty forgiving when it comes to conspiracies. I don't rule out Bigfoot and I wouldn't be surprised in the least if the government had proof of Aliens. I'll even give you some cabal of super wealthy that run everything. Those conspiracy theories at least have a small amount of logic behind them. The idea that the Clintons are using a Pizza place as some sort of cover for a child sex ring is so ridiculously out there that I can't even...

Top Six Winter Driving Tips! Here's tip number 7, these tips are fake. They're funny but remember that they are fake. If you see a Yeti you should DEFINITELY try and mate with it. Passing up on some sweet Yeti action like that is 6 years bad luck.

Time Loop movies that don't suck. This is a pretty good list, frankly I can't believe someone else saw the movie Triangle. There's a couple clunkers in here (Donnie Darko is garbage, sorry cool kids) but you could spend a lot worse time than checking all of these out.

The 25 Best Comics of 2016. I didn't read most of the comics on this list (I think total I read 7) but what I did read was very very good so I'm going to go ahead and say that this is a solid list. It's also a stark reminder that I need to keep cutting back on titles from DC and Marvel so I have more flex money to spend on smaller publishers. Only thing that didn't make the list that feels like a real snub to me is Descender. I couldn't give you a specific title but there was more than one issue this year that really blew me away. Absolutely the best Sci-Fi book going today.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Teaser Trailer

I can't believe when this new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer hit YouTube I didn't run to post it on my blog. I was probably sleepy or something.

The trailer is every bit as good as you would hope. Rocket wants to blow something up, Groot is acting silly and cute, StarLord is made out to be a bafoon, Gamora is... well I mean she's there. Hopefully she has a bigger role in the movie than StarLord's love interest. Why not give her a big button that blows stuff up too?

Moana- You're Welcome

I haven't had the chance to see Moana yet but holy carp, this song "You're Welcome" by Dwayne THE ROCK Johnson is fantastic. I pretty much love everything about it. Maui's moving tattoos are really cool, whatever animator thought of that deserves a huge raise, or at least a peak at the frozen body of Walt Disney everyone knows they're hiding underneath Disney Land.

Christmas Wish List: Pokeballs

Every day in December (work schedule permitting) I plan on posting one thing from my official DevilDinosaur Christmas Wish List (patent pending). Why? Because I can.

I need more Pokeballs and I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for the stupid things. My son isn't the most patient Pokemon Go player in the world, if he sees a Pokemon he has to trap it, doesn't matter if it's a trash Pokemon or not, if it's there he's flinging Pokeballs at it. We ran out on Saturday so on Sunday we went to a bunch of Pokestops on the way to the mall, we collected about 20 Pokeballs and by the time we actually got to the mall we were out again. It was crazy. On the plus side we did pick up a pretty sweet Tauros AND got to play on the zip line at the park in Federal Way.

Yes, I'm well aware this all sounds like gibberish. But it's fun gibberish.

Christmas Wish List: Large Format Scanning

Every day in December (work schedule permitting) I plan on posting one thing from my official DevilDinosaur Christmas Wish List (patent pending). Why? Because I can.

Oh Large Format scanner, how I have longed for you these many years. Every time I have to scan an 11x17 picture I hear your sirens call. You see, for most of my drawings I use industry standard 11x17 comic art board which is WAY too big for my scanner. My inelegant solution to the issue is scanning the top, middle and bottom part of the picture separately and splicing it all together in photoshop. It's time consuming and sometimes if one of the scans is the slightest bit askew it can be really frustrating.

Of course a decent large format scanner costs about $500, while the one I'm using now was free because my dad gave it to me. Maybe I should start playing scratchers. How else am I supposed to get that kind of cash, save my money?
