That post on the Awl about blocking people on twitter just reminded me of that one time Andy Dick blocked me on twitter.
HR’s tour manager has been sound checking for the past two hours. It’s a spoken word event.
ideleteme asked: If your only cigarette choices are your brand in 100s or a different brand of shorts, which are you choosing?
I have had 22 slices of pizza from the same pizza place in the past 3 months. I know this because I document everything in free slice punch cards.

It had been only a few hours since Erwin microwaved his Hot Pocket.– The best sentence I have read today.
Because of this figure drawing class, I want to draw everyone naked now. No content or context, I just want to see contours. Sorry for picturing you all naked in a non-sexual way.

An ad that pretends to be art is-at absolute best-like somebody who smiles at...– David Foster Wallace (via jakec) This argument is at best hyperbolic idealism that casually brushes aside the history of art in advertising to serve its own conclusion.

I debated over whether or not I should say anything at all but I guess I will. I’m going to take a short break from the #365daysofdrawing posts. There are some projects I need to work on and if I keep dumping onto tumblr my, I don’t know, artistic reserves? I’m going to burn out real quick. Or lose focus. Or both! Probably both. I started the drawing thing here because I was...
Person: Hi, I'm writing a trend piece on the emergence of electronic music? And I was wondering who I should talk to about it?
Me: You should look up Leon Theremin.

Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the writers of the Walking Dead brought back Merle Dixon and tried to pass him off as The Governor for season three. The people who write for this show hate story telling. If you watch this show and haven’t read the comics, I urge you to read them. Maybe some day when you have a few hours to kill, go to like, a Barnes & Noble or something, grab a...
Hang on, I’ve got a joke: a bunch of zombies see a helicopter and all of the sudden they go on a pilgrimage.
