There are over seven years of comics on that site. I still add a new one occasionally, but not every day like I did for most of those 7 years. Some of them are well done (if I do say so myself), some are terrible, and a lot were made just to get a comic out that day.
I worked hard on the comic as a whole so it always makes me happy when someone takes the time to check it out.
These are all based around the idea that something terrible is about to happen. This is the moment before it happens. I did a similar comic with the same name when I was in college. This is an updated version.
The joke might get a little old after a few, but I made it for several years. I hope you enjoy it!
If you are reading this, you are already on the Ponder Couch. So you probably already know about it. But it would mean a lot to me if you checked out some of the other entries from the archives. I've had this blog going for a while. My friends Mike, Geoff, Mal, Spike the Fish, and Princess Melawesome all have a post or 3 worth checking out.
Here is where you can listen to the audio versions of all of the original songs on my sethifus Youtube page! You can buy them too, if you are so inclined. The quality isn't the best, but I make them available just in case.
This is a cafe press store I set up for shirts and stuff with Alpha Psi Omega designs on them. Mostly for my APO friends from college. But this store has sold more stuff than the others combined. Go figure.
For a little over a year now I've been making videos of a page-by-page reading of "14,000 Things to Be Happy About" by Barbara Ann Kipfer. It is a fun and silly book about happy things, and I quite like it.
I uploaded the first video on February 15, 2014. It is now February 22, 2015 and I've only uploaded up to page 25 of the 613 page book (I uploaded a couple videos of the cover, title page, and back cover summary as well). Hopefully I can get myself back into the project and finish it before 2016.
Yeah, it's sideways (I couldn't figure out how to turn them inside the Vine app. And it had synced up so well that I decided to leave it sideways instead of spending more time to get it not quite as well-synced but tilted the right way).
Look at those cluttered Day Planner Calendars! One from 2014 and one from 2006. Both have all sorts of stickers on them! Let's examine them, shall we?
I see a big 2 Stupid Dogs sticker I made. A Relient K Back to the Few Tour sticker. A Roper sticker. Some Dr. Seuss. A Telly Monster. Sponge Bob. The Count. Chuck E. Cheese. A chimp or two. Squidward. And one with the Dinosaur guy who wants you to brush your teeth.
A Calvin and Hobbes sticker I made (it's the image I used for my C and H tattoo!). Dexter's Lab. They Might Be Giants. Atari. More Seuss. Ernie. Spongebob and Patrick. Gorilla. I think there's a Build-a-Bear sticker. An otter reading a book? A penguin. And one from a block of cheese!
On to 2014!
John Arbuckle! A fish bowl. Treasure Chest. Another Roper (I have a bunch of those, and tend to repeat stickers on more than one clutter-item). I voted and also Count! Jack-o-Lantern. A Children's Museum Haunted House. And a couple that are too small for me to see as I type this.
A bear. Archie McPhee! New! Mr. Yuck! Chimp! Skeleton! Garfield! Maggie! Matt Wixson (evil ska genius)! Banana! Heart! Smiley face! More small ones.
That's it for these two years. I thought I'd covered at least one more year's worth of a calendar planner thing, but I didn't see it on my shelf that 2006 inhabits.
I just got a new planner for 2015 yesterday. Meet back here in 2016 and maybe I'll tell you about the stickers I find for this one!
I just got back from a trip to Florida and Universal Studios!
To make up for all the days I missed I'm going to do 7 quick reviews of a variety of Defictionalized Products I sampled around the park!
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter:
1. Butter Beer!
It's really good! It reminds me of hot chocolate, but tastes like hot, frothed milk with butterscotch syrup and whip cream. Mmmmmm!
Above you can see me drinking my hot Butter Beer in front of Gringotts and its dragon. I ordered a hot Butter Beer, but I got to taste the frozen version. I prefer the hot version.
You could get a plastic mug/glass/cup thing, but I didn't feel a need to buy one.
2. Pumpkin Juice!
The Pumpkin Juice is on our left in the picture. I got a cup of it at the 3 Broomsticks (and got to try the Hogshead beer, it was ok). The Pumpkin Juice is really good on ice! It is one of the most pumpkin-y tasting drinks I've ever had. I also got a bottle of it. It was too strong for my taste in the bottle. The ice waters it down a bit, and I think it tastes better that way.
I bought a bottle of it so I could keep the bottle.
3. Gilly Water.
In the above picture you can see the label from a bottle of Gilly Water. I didn't actually try it, but my Mom and brother both say it's just bottled water with no other flavor.
The Harry Potter area had lots and lots and lots of other Defictionalized Products: such as wands, extendable ears, and soooo much candy. But I didn't have enough money to buy all of that, and I still wanted to buy more food at....
4. Duff Beer!!!!!!
This may be my favorite Defictionalized food Product, ever.
The ladies who sold it to me told me that even though you can buy a bottle of Duff Beer, they can not give the bottle itself to anyone who buys one. There is no glass allowed in the park, apparently. I understand why they would make this rule, but I think this is extremely stupid, and they both seemed to think so, too. They said I could take a picture of it, though.
I bought a plastic glass of it in Moe's Tavern first!
I love this beer! I thought it would be a cheap-tasting, watered-down crappy beer, but it was really good! I loved the flavor. It reminds me of Sam Adams Boston Lager, but it doesn't have the bitter end that SABL does.
I wish I could get this from my local grocery store. It might be another beer with different labels, but it didn't taste like anything beer I drink on a regular basis.
Since I couldn't keep the bottle, I did feel the need to buy the plastic beer glass.
I also bought...
5. Flaming Moe!
It's not alcoholic.
Princess Melawesome actually ordered it, but she let me taste it. It's good, fruity, but not alcoholic and there is not children's cough syrup in it.
It's not on fire, either. It looks like it's smoking because of dry ice (?) in the base of the glass.
I liked it, but the Duff Beer was much, MUCH better.
6. Krusty Burger!
This was awesome.
Almost as good as Duff Beer (also pictured).
If I could have a Krusty Burger and a Duff Beer at least once a week, life would be good.
7. Lard Lad Doughnut!
My brother Kyle bought a Lard Lad Doughnut. It was huge!
Luckily he shared some with me.
Lard Lad Doughnuts are also really, really good. No wonder Homer is so fat (as is pretty much all of Springfield).
8. "Bort" Keychain!
Remember this clip?
In the Kwik-E-Mart there were lots of fun Simpsons stuff for sale. Unfortunately they did not have licence plates with your name on them, but they did have Kwik-E-Mart nametags and this key chains with your name on them!
And yes, both had Bort versions! So I bought one.
I love it. It is on my new backpack I bought to use as a carry-on. It looks like the TARDIS.
Hopefully starting tomorrow I'll be updating on schedule again.
