The Worn: Scrooge's Worry Room!

This is the first in (hopefully) a series of articles I plan to write about things that have been worn, broken-in, and loved into something much better than the original items.

I am fascinated by this concept. So much so that I wrote a song about it (see the above video). That song is the theme song for this (probably) ongoing series of articles.

For this first "The Worn" article I'm going to focus on the first time I remember noticing the concept of things wearing down over time. Scrooge McDuck's Worry Room!

(pictures from HERE)

Whenever Scrooge got worried about something and needed to think he would go into his worry/thinking room and walk in a circle, wearing a groove in the floor.

I wanted one of these!

I went so far as to try to walk around in a circle in my basement to try to start my own rut. I gave up soon after.

This idea has stuck with me since I first saw it on DuckTales all those years ago.

On another episode Scrooge had a Lazy Susan Turntable thing he walked on in his worry room.

(Picture from HERE)

I liked this idea too, but I prefer the idea of doing something so often it changes the environment you do it in.

This was the beginning of my fascination!

In elementary through middle school we had neighbors who would walk through our backyard every morning on their way to school. They stuck mostly to the same path. By the time we moved into that house there was already a path worn where they walked.

This path reminded me of Scrooge's worry room.

Now that the new DuckTales is coming out soon (I really enjoyed the first episode!) I decided to start reading through the collections of Scrooge McDuck comics that are in the public library.

They have pictures of his worry room too!

(pics taken by me!)

I guess the second picture isn't the Worry Room, but it's the same concept.

I still love this idea and would still like to have a Worry Room of my own! Since I doubt I'll ever get to swim in a ball pit money bin, maybe I'll have to figure out a Worry Room...

Indiana State Fair 2017!

Princes Melawesome and I went to the fair this last weekend!

I love the fair!

I ate a bunch of stuff, but didn't take any pictures of it.

Well, not most of it.

But I did take some pictures!

Here are all of the pictures and 1 video I took!

I'll comment on them.

The fair has anew chair lift ride!

We went on it.

I was so excited about it, I took a video!

We rode it again before we went home (the other way). But I didn't take a video of that.

In the arts building I saw this Doctor Who blanket!

I took the picture to send to my parents.

We also found the cheese sculpture!

If you look at the ice cream scoops, you can see that they are starting to come apart!

I got my yearly glass of tomato juice!

And then we started looking for the giant pumpkins!

We found some scarecrows!

And some big, but not giant, pumpkins.

(I don't know these people)

I needed to find the giant pumpkins because after I find them I feel like I can finally get excited for Halloween!

We couldn't find them last year... and maybe the year before (I can't remember for sure), but we found them this year!

I am going to have to join the Indiana Pumpkin Growers Association!

After we gawked at the giant pumpkins we headed to the Wine and Beer expo building!

I got a flight.

And then we rode the chair lift and went home!

While we were on the chair lift Princess Melawesome and I talked about how we don't understand the appeal of the Dairy Barn.

I mean... it's ice cream.  Ice cream is good, but not so good that it should be busy all day long. And it always seems to be busy all day long.

We like the Dole Whip better.

It feels sort of like our version of Ben not getting why everybody loves Lil' Sebastion so much...

That's the fair this year!!!!!!! We did other stuff and walked all over the place, but this is all of the pictures I took!

Now... on to Halloween!!!!!!

Rejected by the New Yorker! Volume 8

Just one comic this time.

I'm going to try to come up with 10 ideas each month to submit.

We'll see if I can even think of one...

SHOES! the Album!

I finally released my new album!

I've been planning to release an album called "SHOES!" for years and years and years.

At least 15 years.

Today, it's finally out!

I'm going to be putting these ads on my social media for the next few days... weeks... months... whatever.

But I want to share them with you right now!

They may not all be legal, but I doubt this album will sell very well (based on all of my other albums).


Here's the whole album in youtube video form!

I'm really proud of this album.... just like the last album... and the one before that...

Please buy it!

3 Taste Test/Reviews!

I recently went to the best grocery store I've ever seen!


It is amazing!

It's a huge store that has pretty much anything I could ever think of or want from a grocery store, plus it has animatronics and other weird decorations!

I was too overwhelmed to even know where to begin taking pictures. So check out the website  and if you ever find yourself in the Cincinnati/Fairfield Ohio area I highly, highly recommend, can not recommend enough that you check it out.

It's about 1 hour and 45 minutes from my house, and I will definitely be back.

Several times.

On this trip I got this haul:

Yes! They have Jelly Babies! When I see a package of Jelly Babies, I buy it.

I also got Jolly Ranchers Watermelon-flavored soda!

I didn't review that in a video. I drank it on the drive home. It's good! I'd drink it again.

But I did review the other 4 cans!

Here are 3 new taste test/reviews!

It's fun to do a bunch of reviews in one day!

Plus now I'm all hopped up on sugar!

I think my favorite part of these reviews is that I got to use my new Ponder Couch Spit Bucket!

Is there anything you'd like to see me review? Drop me a line at!
