Day 57 - Bad MSPaint Art: homsar - 2/26/2015

I love everything This is homsar. He is one of my favorite parts of the Homestar Runner-verse.  He is today's Thing.

I wish they would make Homestar Runner stuff every week again. They've made a few new things recently, but it's not nearly enough to feed my addiction.

Day 56 - A poem about.... - 2/25/2015

Suggested by Princess Melawesome:

Kevin Sorbo and Hercules (a Poem)

Kevin Sorbo is not Hercules
but he played him on TV.
He has the hair and muscles and face
but he will never be
the mythical half-god
of tales and songs
but he comes a lot closer than me.

William Shatner is not Captain Kirk
but he played him on the show.
It wasn't a hit immediately
when it started so long ago.
His following has grown
from cult to Cult
and it only continues to grow.

Oprah is not Oprah...

No, wait, yes she is.

I'm poet, I don't show it, as often as I could
but become my patron, and I might, maybe, just maybe would.

Day 55 - My 33rd Birthday! - 2/24/2015

It's my birthday! As I write this, I just turned 33 a few minutes ago or so (8:30-ish AM).

Want to help me celebrate my becoming two 3's? Here's a list of things you could do.

1. Go watch some videos on my Youtube Page!

There are a lot of videos on there. You might be able to watch for a few hours and not repeat a video. I always like to get a few more views.

2. Go watch some videos on my Youtube for Children and Their Grown Ups Page!

There are 50-some videos on there. I would appreciate it if you shared the videos with children and/or parents you know.

3. Watch my reading of "14,000 Things to Be Happy About"!

I've only read 25 pages so far (if you don't count the covers and title page).  It's a silly book, but it does make me happy to read it. It might make you happy to watch a few pages-worth.

4. Read some of the archives of my comic Ponder and Enlightening!

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.

5. "Read" some of my Impending Doom! comics!

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!

On to the blogs!

6. Check out the rest of the Ponder Couch!

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.

7. The Mighty Palace of Corn!

The Corn Palace of Mitchell South Dakota is stupid and wonderful at the same time. I love it a lot so I started a blog to collect the mentions and depictions of it in various media.

Check it out!

8. My Happy Seth Comics!

This blog is a series of single-panel comics about things that make my life a little brighter.

I haven't updated it in a while. Maybe soon.

I hope you like some of these things too.

9. My Childish Books!

These are books I write in the form of children's books, but they are not for children. So far there are only 2. I have an idea for a couple more books, but no drive to do them. Maybe some day.

Silly, dark humor. You might like them, you might hate them. There they are.

You might be saying, "But Seth, I can only show affection and/or celebrate with money? What can I do?"

Oh, my flush friend, so many things...


10. Check out my sethifus Bandcamp page!

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.

11.  Check out my MisterSeth Bancamp page!

Same deal, but with my music for kids. Check it out, share it with kids and parents and teachers.

Apparel and Accessories!

12. My Ponder and Enlightening Cafe Press Store!

Shirts and stuff I made with P 'n E images on them! You can buy them, if you want.

13. My Impending Doom! Cafe Press Store!

Impending Doom! shirts and stuff. You can buy this stuff, too!

14. My APO Town Cafe Press Store!

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.

15. My Fictional Bands Cafe Press Store!

I had plans to make up a bunch of band names and put them on shirts and stuff. I made a few. Check them out!

16. My You Had to Be There Cafe Press Store!

This store was for products with inside jokes on them for my friends and I to buy. They make no sense to you, but you can still buy them if you want.

17. My Happy Mediocrity Cafe Press Store!

Back before youtube I wrote music in an attempt to be another Dashboard Confessional. I made some shirts and stuff with the name and some images on them. You can buy them here.

Oh, and you can download all of the songs I wrote as "Happy Mediocrity" on my sethifus bandcamp page.

18. Reactionary Tees.

I'm not proud of this, but there it is.

So there it is! The bulk of my years of creativity on the internet! Take some time to consider them, and you will have helped me celebrate the beginning of my 33rd year or making stuff.

One more thing....

If you want to help me fulfill my dream of quitting my real job and getting paid a comfortable wage for making what I want to make when I want to make it, become my patron on patreon!

Maybe some day a rich person like Oprah or JK Rowling or... David Letterman will decide to help me out, until then it's up to you!

How 'bout it?

Day 54 - Christopher Robin Quote - 2/23/2015

Here is today's Thing-a-Day Thing!

I didn't draw it, I just perverted the quote and paired it with an image from a Google image search.

It was something I thought needed to be out there. I feel this way about 99.9 % of people who make jokes/snarky comments on the internet.

 Plus it paired well with this:

Which I did not make.

I wish I did. It's funny. Much more funny than the one I made, but what are ya gonna do?

Like Winnie the Pooh? Like me, too? Patronize!

Day 53 - Page 25 of "!4,000 Things to Be Happy About" - 2/22/2015

 Today's Thing.

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.

We shall see.

If you patronized me, it might give me the umph I need to get this project done!

Day 51 - This is Howdy Doody - 2/20/2015

Here is today's Thing-a-Day Thing!

Yeah, it's a Vine.

Yeah, it's a joke I stole from Chris Hardwick (the Nerdist).

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).

But it's a Thing I made.

Wanna encourage more Vines? Patronize me!

Day 44 - A Poem, written on a Sunday for a Friday - 2/13/2015 (2/15/2015)

Morning coffee
jowl bacon
sizzling, boiling
waking up.

Radio talking
chilly floor
kitties stirring
waking up.

Air is freezing
light is streaming
blinds dividing
waking up.

Slumber leaving
iphone buzzing
morning rituals...

Longing for
going back to bed.

Day 42 - Clutter: Day Planner Calendars - 2/11/2015

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?

First, 2006:

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!

Days 35-41 - 7 Universal Studios Defictionalized Products Reviews! - 2/10/2015

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).

Bonus Review!

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.

Wanna help me achieve my dream of living in the Harry Potter area of Universal studios? Become my patron! If that dream isn't realized, at least I might be able to order some of that Honeydukes candy off of
