In celebration of going to see John Darnielle tomorrow and a contribution to the darnielleadventures tag, Heather and I spent an entire period in school making these. Enjoy probably my greatest works of art yet:
I saw this post and wanted to do some of my own and I spent my entire free period making these. honestly Rachel and I are meeting john darnielle again tomorrow and I’m genuinely considering printing these out and giving them to him
I had a dream last night that I was carrying around a giant bag of donuts, and there were so many of them, and so much icing that they were kinda starting to clump together to make a massive donut, and I don’t think I have ever been so upset with the stark horror of waking up.
1. Main character is an emotionally inept dweeb with wavey hair.
2. Main character has a job related to science but spends most of their time not doing it.
3. Main character has quirky hobbies.
3. Every episode ends with an internal monologue about what they learned from the episode.
4. Main character has an unplanned child and gets really weird about it.
5. Main character kills people. Dexter does it intentionally, J.D. does it by being a shitty doctor.
Conclusion: Dexter is just a really mopey version of Scrubs.
Today I decided to go see The Aquabats, because A) they were the first band I ever saw, almost exactly nine years ago, and B) I pretty much stopped emotionally maturing at the age of 12.
This is the most children I have ever seen at a concert. I commend all of their parents.
Last night I saw a picture of John Darnielle of the The Mountain Goats and some other things, in front of a green backdrop. It reminded me of a green screen, so I decided to make a transparent PNG of John Darnielle to stick him into other pictures.
Then I decided to go ahead and put him on some nice adventures.
And then, for some reason, it turned into John Darnielle, talented and well respected songwriter and musician, stares at black metal things.
Maybe you could take the attached PNG and put him on a nice adventure. Somewhere pleasant like a beach or looking at some giraffes.
Maybe consider using the hashtag #darnielleadventures, because I’m not very good at coming up with catchy hashtags and that was the best I could think of.
To anyone complaining about getting the new U2 album, all I have to say is that’s what you get for only skimming over the end user agreement, where, in paragraph 187, it grants Apple explicit rights to put U2 albums on your computer at any point that it deems it appropriate or necessary.
The clause is actually a holdover from all the way back in 1989, when Apple planned to release computers with a free cassette of the multi-platinum album The Joshua Tree, as a way to tout what they claimed was an innovative new breakthrough in home audio technology, but was discarded after reporters discovered that the new breakthrough was actually a Macintosh SE/30 with a tapedeck glued to it.
Self promotion makes my fucking skin crawl. Here are some animated shorts I made for a contest. It would be super helpful if you pressed the LIKE button on them. Unless you don’t like them. That’s fine also.
