I still have nothing but some funny spam

I’ve been on a Pratchett bender the past week or so, having found six Discworld novels at Half Price books that I didn’t own already. This is a boon of massive proportions, especially seeing as one of them (although it’s not in the best of shape but I don’t even care) has the original paperback artwork. I’m fine with the generic mass-produced covers of most of the paperbacks that I find, but the style of the originals is so ornate and so damn cool that it makes me want to get a full back piece tattooed of the Discworld. Of course, I already wanted to do that, it just makes the wanting and the needing of it that much stronger.

I’ll keep trying to crawl out of my head – it mostly sounds like the zzzzztttt of a staticky television set, randomly interspersed with snippets of songs that burst out while I’m cleaning the cat box, or, more frequently than one would imagine, the doot-doot-doot of the original Mario Bros. game. The tail end of my intelligence is dangling right in front of me, so I’ll just keep fattening it up with good books and blogs, questionable television choices (hell yeah, MTV’s The Challenge: Free Agents is on tonight!), and silly ridiculous sketches that are so bad they make me laugh even while I’m still drawing them. Soon, it’ll get so chockfull of stuff that it’ll burst its seams like the Oogie Boogie Man, and genius in the form of creep-tastic animated bugs will swarm through my mind and spill onto the page.

It’s possible I haven’t gotten enough sleep. Mayhap I’ve gotten too much. Mayhap.

Until that day, please enjoy the most oddly specific spam comment I’ve gotten yet:

Individual, almost microscopic-level jokes, like Cousin Ira
grabbing a fake name from his pen and insisting that he was the contender
and she waas the ex-wife of the i need help to get my ex back contender

  1. You’ve got a whopper coming. I can tell. And it’s going to be awesome and epic.

  2. I discovered the Nightmare Before Christmas last holiday season, and immediately loved it. As they say on the Internet, your metaphor is full of win.
    Also, Cousin Ira sounds an interesting person. He coulda been a contender… šŸ˜€

    • Oh man, I remember being almost not a teenager anymore and going to see it in the theater with people who had taken their little kids, not quite understanding what they were about to get. Ha, my stocking is a Nightmare Before Christmas one, very black and festive šŸ™‚

  3. Awesome spam. I would never refer to your humor as microscopic. It’s loud and clear and always makes me laugh.. like the word mayhap..I smile every time. Getting fat on books and blogs and tv is my kind of diet. That’s what I’m doing too, as I haven’t written a damn thing other than my melodramatic little poems. One of these days that zzzzft of the staticky television will become HD quality for both of us. In the meantime there’s always Cousin Ira… and Pratchett, of course. šŸ™‚

    • When in doubt, make ’em laugh and leave while they’re still confused about why they’re laughing šŸ™‚ Ha it’s gotta happen – we both know the characters and the stories are there, we just have to keep planting our asses and plonking the keys. I figure I’d rather hit a couple discordant notes than none at all, yeah? Oh, Pratchett. My love for him knows no bounds, at least in a literary sense as I’ve not met the man himself. I just finished the third of the six books I bought, and am getting ready to start Men At Arms – it’s a Sam Vimes driven story, so I’m very happy. I just had an urge to say something kind of sappy to you, along the lines of I’m always so glad to see your name pop up in my comments, I just think you’re pretty badass šŸ™‚
