If My Dogs were a pair of Middle-Aged Men: The Oatmeal keeps you regular

I have been laughing deep jolly belly laughs for close to a decade thanks to Matthew Inman, the twisted monkey brain behind Web comic The Oatmeal. His dastardly comics include such classics as a Mother-Effin Pterodactyl who pisses acid, an analysis of cats plotting against you, and a compendium about the proper usage of the semi-colon. Let's not forget 'How to Punch a Dolphin in the mouth'.

The Oatmeal has made a nice business of coffee table books collecting Inman's artwork and making it available offline and in eBook format. 'Dogs Pair Middle-Aged Men' is exactly that. A whole mess of hilarious relatable pages.

If My Dogs Were a Pair of Middle-Aged Men (The Oatmeal, Matthew Inman)

This is perfect for those nights you are too drunk to work the Internet on your iPhone but still, want to prove to some foolish bar patron that you are hip. Like riding a bike, it is hard to forget your 'turn pages' skills. This collected volume of comic strips will make you pee yourself just a little tiny bit and but not so much your intoxicated sex-time buddy can tell.

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…

Anne of Green Gables: Hell to the graphic novel YEAH!

I grew up eating a lot of cheesy macaroni and hanging around women who obsessed over Anne of Green Gables. They watched the films, read the books, pretended to be the characters. I understood macaroni but failed to understand the pull people had for Avonlea.

As I got older, I gained an appreciation. My reading branched out to more than just Stephen King and Hardy Boys. I read the first book in the series and evolved into a big bearded dude who doesn't change the channel when some variation comes on the Hallmark channel. Netflix launched 'Anne with an E' and I holed up in the bedroom with my wife to consume it.

I nearly peed myself when I found out a new Graphic Novel was slated for release.

PREORDER! October 24th Release date.

River Queens: Keeping good company with Huck and Hemingway

Pre-Release, publication set for 10/17/18
A boat is a hole in the water you throw money into,” is one of thousands of sayings that denies the truth which every sailor respects: a boat is conduct into a hostile environment. Water is a hostile environment. Seafarers are so afraid of it that we make jokes about running aground, catching fire, and blowing up; accidents happen. But that danger is the bond that holds together otherwise free-spirited individuals into one cohesive lot.
- River Queens
Based on a review copy of the book, I was pleased that my initial impressions were shallow. Initial thoughts (after reading the leaf notes alone) were a presented heavy handedness, calling hail to the great American novel as many small publications aspire every year. Determining what I was actually to be reading required cracking the first page and just taking it on directly. The title of the book, ‘River Queens: Saucy boat, stout mates, spotted dog, America’ supported a potential hyperbolic w…
