Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (The Oatmeal)

Matthew Inman is a genius and The Oatmeal is his brainchild. As a child, I was never a fan of oatmeal, but it was better than cornmeal. Inman altered my reality with the magic of stinging pterodactyl laser piss in my eyes.
5 very good reasons to punch a dolphin in the mouth ( and other useful guides ) was a great read. There are a number of classic Oatmeal comics in this book, including “Why Nikola Tesla is the most awesome geek who ever lived”, “7 reasons to keep you Tyrannosaur off crack cocaine”, and “How to use a semicolon, the most feared punctuation on earth”
There are also a number of new comics featured? only in the book. “5 reasons to have rabies instead of babies” being the one i enjoyed the most.
I cannot say this is a book for everyone. The humor of TheOatmeal is a special brand, If you are unfamiliar, go hit up TheOatmeal.com and get a taste.
Brand new it can be purchased at online retailers for under ten bucks, so itis really quite a steal.

  1. I lurves the Oatmeal! It has taught me some very important things like how long I would survive if chained to a bed with a velociraptor in the room and how I could tell if my loved ones were planning to eat me. I am glad you love it to or I might have to ptero-you a new asshole

AbyssRium (IDLE Idea Factory) + Strategy

Tap games are a dime a dozen in the mobile world. Most (as is AbyssRium) are free with ad-supported revenue and/or provide efficiency cheats in a store.

AbyssRium sets itself apart from other tap games by leveraging a unique concept. In a Synthetic ocean, you are the ever loving caretaker of a talking 'Coralite', which to the best of our perceptions is an underwater volcanic vent. The point of the game is to build strength and vitality for your volcano and its surrounding wild life; evolving animals and fortifying new types of coral. As each element of your world is enhanced, you elicit more vitality from the creatures for use in evolution.
It is easiest to think of your mobile device as the side of a giant fish tank, and you are going to be tapping on the glass. While you were told in life this was bad for an aquarium, in AbyssRium, your Coralite considers this loving attention. It smiles at you, gives on screen hints, and makes a slightly disturbing orgasm face every time y…

Interview: Q&A with Khaled Talib, 'Gun Kiss' author

I recently had the opportunity to interview Crime/Thriller author Khaled Talib. He allowed me a few minutes of his time to pick his brain about both his upcoming Thriller Gun Kiss as well as to ask him about the writing and publishing process in general.

I was pleased to get some insight into his upcoming novel and dig deeper into what makes Khaled tick. We also learned about some launch week giveaways and events that will be happening, so scroll to the end for details on how to participate and enter contest

The launch window leading up to a book release is crunch time for many last minute details. I am grateful for the late night responses it likely took in order to answer my questions!


Slated for release on 12/01/2017

Synopsis of Gun Kiss:

When the Deringer pistol that shot Abraham Lincoln is stolen and ends up in the hands of a Russian military general, covert agent Blake Deco is tasked by the FBI to head to the Balkans to recover the historical weapon. Meanwhile, the United States…

Interview: Q&A with Joseph M. Reynolds, author of Make Dust Our Paper

During the Fall, I received a copy of a book that has had surprising staying power in my mind. Initially, I had mixed feelings, some ambiguity regarding the work. When it clicked with me, it really fell right into place.

Make Dust Our Paper has reserved a permanent place in my collection.

Like the nosy reader I am, after reading I emailed the author with a few followup questions about the plot. Ultimately, he answered my questions then he agreed to be interviewed about his novel and other topics. The holiday season is terribly busy for people, so I really appreciate that he was able and willing to take the time.

With that, much thanks to Joseph M. Reynolds!


Synopsis of Make Dust Our Paper:
"Carrigan approaches the millennium New Year craving climax and culmination. What he finds instead is constant anti-climax, and lack of definitional consequence for his failures and failings and genius. A conceptual heir to Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise, this novel explores everything …
