Day 150-151 - Pgs. 27-31 of "14,000 Things to be Happy About" a reading! - 5/30/2015-5/31/2015

So I didn't put anything up yesterday...

But I did make 5 new videos of 5 more pages of "14,000 Things..."!

Somebody commented on page 25 asking for more, so I made more!

I hope you love them and watch them all 100 times and watch the rest of them 100 times too and share them with 100 friends who also watch them 100 times!

That's gotta add up to at least 14,000, right?

Day 149 - Winnie the Pooh Moose! - 5/29/2015

I'm watching "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" on Netflix!

There's a part when Pooh gets stuck in Rabbit's door hole. Then Rabbit tries to turn Pooh's bottom into moose head.

I got to wondering, what would the full moose look like?

Thus, today's Thing-a-Day Thing.

Day 147 - Neil Cicierega Puppet! - 5/27/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing is Neil Cicierega!

He made all the Potter Puppet Pals stuff. I like them. I even got to meet him once.

And I got to hold the Snape puppet!

But I like a lot of his other stuff more. He also makes music under the name Lemon Demon.

I like his other videos a lot.

Like this

and this

and this

and this!

You should probably check all of his stuff out.

Anymore when I make stuff I'm either ripping of Neil or Dinosaur Dracula.

Day 146 - The PBF Guy - 5/26/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing is the generic Perry Bible Fellowship guy!

I made his neck a little too long, but I think it turned out OK.

Have you ever read the Perry Bible Fellowship? It is one of my top 5 online comics! Nicholas Gurewitch is a master at aping other people's art styles. He parodies everyone from Shel Silverstein to animes to Candyland, and draws it exactly like the source material!

But careful! It's only for adults (swears, violins, and nakers)

If only it would update more often.

Day 145 - Towel/Geek Pride/Star Wars/Glorious 25th of May! - 5/25/2015.

It's Memorial Day.

And Geek Pride Day/Towel Day/Star Wars Day/the Glorious 25th of May!

I celebrate the latter 4 on this day each year!

You can download this song here!

But today's Thing-a-Day Thing is actually this:

My Towel Day Towel!

I've been using it for a few years now. I chose it because it's small enough to carry around without much trouble. Plus it reminds me a bit of Arthur Dent's towel in the much-maligned movie version of "the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy".

I actually like the movie version a lot. To each their own...

This year the towel is a bit different! Today I added some drawings to represent the other May 25th geeky celebrations!  Here they are!

The towel itself and the number 42 in the corner are in celebration of Towel Day, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Douglas Adams. The 42 has been there other years, but I remarkered and added a little orange on the edges to make it pop out more.

I wrote "GEEK PRIDE" in a pixilated font for Geek Pride Day! I try not to be too prideful too much of the time, but I do like the things I like.

A sprig of lilacs for the Glorious 25th of May! This is a reference to Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. I've read a few of the books, played the games, seen a few of the movies, but haven't gotten into the series like I feel I should. I don't not like it, but I'm not head-over-feet for it. I wish I was.

And finally the Rebel Alliance starbird for Star Wars Day! I like Star Wars, but I've always liked Star Trek a little more. They're both good nerdgeekdork fun, though. Can't we all just get along?

That's it!

I'd like to add more, but I don't know what to add. I'm already representing each of the 4 celebrations of May 25th. Am I missing any?

If so, let me know in the comments!

Ponder Couch Store!!!!!!

I mentioned in a post a few days ago that I should start a Ponder Couch Store.

Well, it exists.

It has this

and a couple other shirts.

I'll add more as I think of them.

Go! Buy! Win!

Day 144 - Fence Owl - 5/24/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing is Fence Owl!

I noticed the knots and sketched around them with a Crayola marker.

Day 142 - A.R.T. - 5/22/2015

Today's Thing is A.R.T. from "Other Space"!

Princess Melawesome and I have been watching it the last couple days. I like it a lot! It's like "Red Dwarf" mixed with "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and "Star Trek"! Check it out! Oh, and "Mystery Science Theater 3000"! Joel and Trace are in it! (Trace is the voice of A.R.T.)

Day 140 - Dinosaur Dracula! - 5/20/2015

Today's Thing is Dinosaur Dracula!

I love the DinoDrac site! It is probably my favorite entertainment, online magazine site. If you like things like cereal mascots, cartoons, action figures, Halloween, Christmas, Gremlins, tiki culture, and everything great about the 80's and early 90's, you should check it out!

Day 138 - Dogwood on "Associate" - 5/18/2015

Here's a Thing with Dogwood from Ponder and Enlightening

And here's another P 'n E-related pic so I have something to post on social media that doesn't have swears in it.

Day 137 - Corn Palace: Domes, Graduation, Floaty Pen! - 5/17/2015

Today's Thing is a new post about the Corn Palace over on my Corn Palace Blog!

It's about the new Domes and stuff.

You should go read it!

Day 136 - Joanna! - 5/16/2015

My sister-in-law Joanna is graduating tomorrow (well, today)!

As we have been preparing the decorations for her reception, we made a banner!

It goes with the display of pictures from her life so far. To make the banner match each of us added a drawing or two of Joanna at various ages.

My drawing of her is today's Thing!

It's based on a couple of her school pictures. I think it turned out pretty good.

Day 135 - Travel Tired, a poem! - 5/15/2015

Travel Tired

In my head
it's time for bed.

Day 132 - "gladys wants fries with that" - 5/12/2015

Today's Thing is a new Indy band you've probably never heard of.

It's also a the newest shirt design in my Fictional Bands cafepress store!

I made it out of a non sequitur and a public domain Edward Lear illustration.

You should probably go buy a shirt or 9.
