Pay attention... to Harold and the Monster / Michael Snead

Image
HEY YOU! you like Independent comics? well web comics are the most indie you can get! they are produced and published for your pleasure, so are you reading them?

Lets start this off right with some props to Michael Snead for a refreshing new comic. This is seriously great. you should follow him on Instagram and get some looks under the covers as he works on his various projects... https://www.instagram.com/snead_doodles/

Harold and the Monster is pretty great. First page was published in October 2017, and is 26 pages deep as of this video post. Harold is a griping and depressed dude who owns his own struggling coffee shop. at the end of a busy work day, he finds himself excreted from the belly of a strange green mucus monster, which then slurps itself down his throat before passing out.

Harold wakes the next day confused with concerned family over his bed.

What will happen next? Dunno. but i will add this to my watch feed going forward and you should expect more update on Harold via …

Ndemic Creations, Plague Inc - Review and Gameplay

Image
This is a dark game but enjoyable.

What are your thoughts? Is this simply a crowd sourced scenario and statistics tool that someone is capitalizing on via big data?

A couple years back, I was introduced to this game on IOS.. it had a freemode and that was the only real requirement for me to download it and give it a shot. It turns out to be one of the longest running games to live on my phone, as well as one of the most disturbing.

Plague Inc is a simple premise. To be ‘Victorious’, you must murder all of mankind.

In this simulator, there is no evil mastermind.. it is simply a biological element go awry and spreading. Was it sourced in a lab or naturally virulent? Who knows.. it isnt really the point, though there is a definite Enders Game feel to this as you craft the strongest collective elements tigether and scenario the perfect ‘win’

There is some hope (for me at least). I have started playing the game with alternate ‘win’ rules. I destroy humanity to the point of seeming no return, a…

Kill Creek: HEY NETFLIX buy the rights to make this a 10 ep series

Image
Xposted from my Instagram acct
RAISE YOUR HAND if you have read Scott Thomas’s Kill Creek?? Finished reading yesterday and been digesting it.
It took me nearly a month to read this novel (no fault of the work itself). Sick family and company deadlines got in the way of my reading. By way of this slow throughput, I spent the month dwelling on the topics of ghosts and haunted houses (see all the comics i was posted).
For those unfamiliar, Kill Creek centers on a small house in Kansas, cursed from the day it was built when a loving couple was violently murdered for being northerner/freed slave. Since then, strange stories and rumors follow the house, and it has been featured several times as one of he most hanuted places in America.
Cue protagonists.. Four horror authors (of various genre staples) are brought to the house on Halloween to self promote their current projects in a live syndicated web broadcast. Whether they are believers in the supernatural or naysayers, they all sit in the sam…

The Ghost Fleet: Ass-kicking Trucker of the apocalypse

Image
Image comics release of The Ghost Fleet: The Whole Goddamned Thing. Review copy provided by the publisher, well to read and review of course...
Pages: 208ISBN: 1534304401ISBN-13: 9781534304406
The Ghost Fleet is a secret shipping system enacted by partnership with Andrew Jackson and Privateers. The Ghost Fleet transports sensitive material where ever and whenever it needs to go. They never know what cargo they carry and it is a violation to ever peek.
After being Hijacked, Trace wakes from a crash to find his Hijackers with their flesh boiled off. He breaks the code and looks in the popped open wreckage of his Semi-Truck and sees the Cargo with his own eyes. He is no longer part of the Fleet, he is hunted by them.
This is the trade paperback for(I believe) a 6 part comic run. Stellar art work, great plot. Feels a lot like Big Trouble in Little China which makes sense as it dedicated to Kurt Russell.
Great writing by Donny Cates, artwork by Daniel Warren Johnson, color by Lauren Affe.. Ther…

Unboxing- Coastal Brew Manual Coffee Grinder (ToastX2)

Image
So First- I got this for free to test.

Second- while accurate, this Amazon description was desperately grasping at SEO relevance.

“Coastal Brew
Non Electric Manual Coffee Grinder by Coastal Brew for Camping, Traveling, Home and Office- Easy Clean Use, Stainless Steel Portable Coffee Mill with Fully Adjustable Ceramic Burr Grinders”

All it needed to really say was “doesnt use electricity so you can stay drenched in hot black coffee nectar and joy even when the world is ending. Just because the end of the world is destroying everything you love... at least your coffee is safe!”

Easy to use, makes a good grind, solid device.
I wish it had a lid though for the grind receptical and a slot or somethng for the handle.

Unboxing and Review: NuNet HD ATSC Receiver and Over Air TV Antenna (ToastX2)

Image
I really really want to cut my cord with cable tv.

Please note that this unboxing and review are based off a product supplied by OEM for review. I have too big an ego to let that influence my opinion and will call out all the flaws as applicable.
My wife and I have been watching our monthly cable costs skyrocket. What extra value are we getting out of it? more sports or spanish language channels we do not watch? another 30 versions of the Real housewives of southwestern nowheresville? Needless to say, I was excited to have a new product to test that supports my desire to untether from the cable tv empire. This unboxing doesn't focus on functionality, just product contents. 
Please ask questions in comments and I will answer them based on my experience 
key features - PVR receiver (personal video recorder), remote control, long corded Over the air HD antenna.

This is a solid middle ground product. Introductory price and introductory features.

As discussed in the Unboxing video fo…

The Big Dairy Free Cookbook: a hard transition seems less painful.

Image
100% honest? I am addicted to the mere thought of dairy.
I was raised on milk and do not have any difficulties digesting it. It is hard for me to imagine anything more satisfying than a tooth-achingly cold glass of 2% milk and a peanut butter sandwich on 20-grain bread. Hard to beat that. Before I met my wife, I lived in a steady diet of no greater than ten food staples; three of which used flour tortillas and one I admit is just a plain bagel that I called a recipe because it used the toaster... Most everything was blanketed in a variety of milk products.

The universe doesn't care about my dream foods. My wife (Pigeon) recently found that many of her body aches and ailments are tied to her gluten and dairy consumption. She is not allergic, but it just doesn't sit well anymore and the side effects make her miserable. While not advised she should refrain from either entirely, the intolerance is causing a cascading shift in our household regarding the perception of both topics.…
