9/17/09-11:49pm - In case you were wondering, part of the reason I haven't posted in a while is that I'm converting webdisaster over to WordPress. My goal is to have it show up pretty much the same as it does now, only it will add some features that people have been requesting, like comments, searches, and RSS feeds. In addition, it will make posting easier for me and hopefully lead to a more organized site. I'm getting pretty close to having it done, and I hope to finish that process over the weekend.
8/21/09-12:34am - These comics are getting taller and taller, so I moved this news feed to the top of the page. If you haven't done so already, check out the Illustration section. There's some relatively new stuff in there.
8/11/09-10:05pm - New stuff posted in the Illustration section. New main coming soon, I promise!
6/24/09-7:01pm - It only took me a little over a year to reach 50 comics! Go Speed Racer Go! I seem to be on a zombie kick lately, and mixing zombies and babies seems to be a natural progression for me... Turned out a little creepier than I envisioned, though.
6/12/09-1:04am - The sketchbook and illustration sections have been recently updated, so if you haven't checked them out, do so!
6/8/09-11:11pm - Still no new comic, but that's because I've been very busy working on two large projects for some friends. You can see them both in the Illustration section.
5/2/09-10:52pm - True Story: A while back, I started messing around on a really awesome site I believe I've mentioned before called Broken Picture Telephone. Early on, BPT had some server issues, so I contributed some money to the administrator, Alishah Novin, so he could make improvements.
4/19/09-9:00pm - Jesus H. Crappin' Christ on a pogo stick. As you're probably well aware, it's been over a month since I posted my last comic. I know I've got a lot going on with a new baby and a fairly demanding job, etc. But I should at least be able to knock out a comic every week or two, right? Well, I've been working on a few ideas for a couple of weeks now and none of them have panned out for one reason or another. Turns out that when you write anecdotes from your life and you have writer's block, eventually all you can think of to write about is writer's block.
3/3/09-11:30pm - This one's like a magic eye picture. If you stare long enough at it, it will become funny. To me. That you wasted your time staring at it. Honestly, I'm having trouble coming up with punch lines, but I want to stay in practice drawing. Not sure where this came from.
2/24/09-9:53pm - For 72 hours or so, I was completely hooked on the greatest website ever. And now it's gone. Come back Broken Picture Telephone! Come Back!
2/10/09-7:16pm - Thanks to Scott Kastner at work for finally digging up the name of the Star Wars character I referenced in this comic. His name is Ten Numb, and he's a Sullistan. The reason I couldn't find him was because I thought he was in a New Hope, when he didn't actually appear until Jedi. Who Knew?! Now I'll promptly forget all about that and move on with my life.
1/18/09-1:45pm - Okay, ever since I posted this comic, the fact that I don't know the name of the Star Wars character to which I'm referring is driving me nuts. You know, it's that guy in A New Hope that's like a rebel alliance captain or something, along with Admiral Ackbar? He's got little beady eyes and grey skin and like gill cheeks? If you know what his name is, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me who it is. I can't seem to find the correct Google search string to figure this one out.
1/13/09-12:44am - This is the first of a four-strip recap of the night/morning Emily was born. The other three strips are sketched out and should be up later this week.
12/29/08-11:32pm - No baby yet, but when we have her, I imagine it will be something like this.
12/6/08-8:12pm - I've been totally addicted to Facebook's Graffiti application, which allows you to draw crappy little pictures and send them to people. I've started collecting them and you can see them here. Make sure to click the 'Previous' button, there are a few in there already.
12/2/08-3:06am - This one is from a suggestion my brother made on webdisaster's Facebook page. "I think you should draw a comic about a zebra. And the punch-line should be 'that's not the way I would have done it'". Also my niece Maddie wanted me to draw some monkeys. So here you go.
11/27/08-12:30am - Okay, hard to argue that this one isn't about my job. No offense Job, but you're no full time cartooning gig. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
11/25/08-1:39am - My comics get misinterpreted sometimes since I'm a such a great communicator. For example, after I posted this comic, I had a lot of people telling me to "hang in there" and "don't let them get you down" and such. Obviously people took it as me ranting that I hate my job or something, when in reality it was supposed to be an ironic look at how I could have picked almost anything as my life's work and I picked salvaging PowerPoint presentations. Not exactly slapstick, I know, but still funny in a larger sense to me.
11/24/08-12:03pm - T-Minus one month or so until B-day!
11/11/08-11:20pm - Webdisaster has finally hit 25 comics! It's a miracle! They're so consistent, too. =)
10/25/08-2:41pm - Todd Snider's new Album 'Peace Queer' is available for free download on his website at www.toddsnider.net. Thanks to my buddy Steve Crosby for pointing this out. Go download it now while you still can! Also, if you're into free music, you should go download Aimee Mann's daytrotter sessions, especially 'Freeway' and '31 Today'. Every time I hear those two songs, it does something funny to me. In my pants. Click Here to go there now.
10/16/08-1:16pm - Sorry no new comics in a while. I did another daytrotter poster this week though. You can see it here.
10/7/08-12:47am - I'm really hoping McCain mentions illegal aliens in the next debate...
9/28/08-10:50pm - On Friday, I got hammered and watched the presidential debates with my sketchbook and pencil in hand. I drew 10 pages in all, and you can see them starting here.
9/17/08-11:40pm - I added an 'illustration' section, as well as this 'news' thing to keep you posted. Last week I started talking to Sean Moeller, the guy who runs daytrotter.com. If you haven't been to daytrotter, bookmark it and make it a habit to check it out daily. Plus go back through the archives. They have a lot of cool-ass bands that come through Rock Island and record a few songs, and you can get them for FREE. Death Cab, Phantom Planet, The Mountain Goats, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead all happen to be personal favorites of mine and they all have free songs available on daytrotter. Anyway, he asked if I would do a poster for the Donkeys show tonight, and I did. You can see it in the 'illustration' section. I hope to be doing more illustrations and helping to get the word out about about local shows and other things I care about. Maybe...
