Pokemon Moon Comic 63: Crack in Time

EITHER THAT OR  COUNT BLECK FORCED A MARRIAGE BETWEEN KIRLIA AND BLASTOISE.

Coincidentally, the new season of Doctor Who started last weekend! For a while now I’ve actually kicked around the idea of Pokemon Time Lords, basically Time Lords but they’re Pokemon, with the unique feature that upon regeneration they become entirely different Pokemon. The Doctormon is a Wobbuffet but upon regeneration becomes a Smeargle. It’s a concept I’d still like to do something with someday, but as I have the art skill of… well… *looks up* I couldn’t go about drawing it myself.

Location profile for Mintop

A blast from the past that I promise is in the future, next week I am going to work on getting where I need to be to get Darmenzi to a finished state.

But for today, we have a page on the planet Mintop. I figured now that we have other planets in play there should be some pages on them, as well. The other planets will get their pages when more is shown in the current story.

PS $3+ patrons get to read the next chapter today.

Pokemon Moon Comic 61 and 62

I really like how this one came out. The book, Oranguru considering it was my first time drawing it. Some of the Pokemon were cramped, especially around Dewpider and Wishiwashi, but it worked out well. I also realized the circles on the book should’ve been angled a bit but oh well. I liked it enough to make a version without names.

This one is just silly.

Yooka-Laylee is here (and updates are near!)

Hey! I got a game in the mail yesterday! It’s Yooka-Laylee! I made a video.

I will have many more videos over the next week with more detailed thoughts on my impressions of the game. I went on a bit on Twitter about my thoughts regarding setting it up and I think a bit about the actual rollout of the game to Kickstarter backers, or, I might have only said that on Kickstarter itself.

Unrelated, I was thinking recently I don’t post here often enough. I often say that. Not here, though. I don’t post here often enough to say that here often enough. But if I keep saying I don’t post here often enough then maybe I will have said it here often.

I realized I say quite a bit on Twitter and sometimes have updates there. However, not everyone has Twitter. I do not blame those who don’t. I want to put notable or important updates on my website more, but I realized posting on here is just a hassle compared to Twitter. I have to go through several pages, oh my goodness, but mostly it’s just that WordPress is slow. For some reason it loads and moves slow and slows down my browser. I don’t know what it is.

Anyway I’m going to post simple updates here more often, such as each individual Pokemon comic instead of 10 at once (Next one coming tomorrow!). Nnnnot the YL videos, though. That’s a bit much. If you’re interested I plan to just have a new video once a day in a normal week (and some extra ones this weekend) until I run out of videos to post. I also might try to make posts in here when I sometimes run the risk of going on for a bit on Twitter. I need to make this place look alive, after all. It’s way more important than Twitter. Twitter’s just dumb jokes. This is writing.

Oh speaking of updates I’ll also have a new profile tomorrow or Sunday. I’ll be busy tomorrow with birthday shenaginags (oh yeah today’s my birthday) and Sunday I’ll probably go visit relatives but I’m sure I’ll get it up one of those days.

Pokemon Moon Comic 51-60: Travels of Akala Island

I finished comic 60 a while ago but totally forgot to put these up here! I should look into having a separate page for these I can just update with new comics but oh well. In this comic, stuff happens. Then the last comic was ridiculous to make. Longest one so far.

Read 10 more comics!

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 4, Off the Walls

Chapter 4 of Wandering Fortunes is here, a little late. Now that Top lives with Alden and his family, it’s time for them to adjust. Or maybe not. Aside from more Top silliness we get to see the inside of Orville’s shack and get to know Alden’s family a bit more. Plus this features the first of a few scenes featuring a huge amount of food!

As always there is Patreon, funds from which would help me not kill myself trying to get everything done ASAP so I’ll complete everything before I have to go back to a dayjob I want to kill. Also I need to update that a bit, I wanted to make some changes. Thanks for reminding me, me. Let me add that to the to-do list. SPEAKING OF WHICH:

EVERYTHING AFTER THIS IS UPDATE ON ME

Bad Rep[resentative]

A little while ago our US Congress worked on a bill designed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, although because it wasn’t Single-Payer, it was worthless. In fact, it was less than worthless: it was bad. They called the American Health America* Care American* Actamerica*, although the Rich Tax Cut No Health Care Not Act would be more accurate. People gave it other names like Trumpcare, Ryancare, Republicare, Republican’t. Well, Rebublicouldn’t, and the bill didn’t pass. Hooray!

Before it didn’t pass, though, I emailed my reps coming out against it. (Technically I emailed them through an activism website or whatever, but same thing.) And I got a response. Now, this is Indiana, aka Wannabe South, aka India, NA. Even our Democrats are… er… Well, anyway, I got a response from rep Trey Hollingsworth. I don’t know what hollings is but it sounds a bit like hollerings, so I don’t actually have a joke here.

Let’s move on.

Profile on scalagos

The page on scalagos is now available. Read about how they’re found on two different planets for some reason that nobody knows, but lots of crazy crackpot theories have been put forth! Yay! Scalagos are the species of the protagonist of Wandering Fortunes, Alden. Scalagos aren’t that important on Zhop, kind of like Numer and the slubes in the first two books, but unlike slubes scalagos are very important on another planet, Derantu. More on that later. Much later.

Updates on other things: Still waiting on stuff regarding Darmenzi‘s completion and the cover for Wandering Fortunes. They’ll come! Don’t worry about that. I’ve also been really busy doing all sorts of stuff and I’m like a week behind so, um. Also, speaking of Wandering Fortunes, I’m about to post chapter 4 for $3+ patrons over at Patreon. Take a look if you’re interested!

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 3: Homed Out, now available

Now available on DVD and Blu-Ray

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 3 is up, wherein Top quits and then retires to a good home on a farm upstate. There’s also some politics with the Micagox. But obviously as always the highlight is Top’s spouting nonsense. They request maternity leave at one point?

As always my Patreon is Patreonning, or whatever, with previews and peeks and what I’m working on now and early chapters. Chapter 4 will be there in just a couple weeks. Top becomes a housewife! (They don’t become a housewife.)

Cleaning a mouse (the, uh, computer device)

I used to have…

Okay.

I have a problem with computer mice. After a while of use they don’t click right–either they don’t click sometimes or they click multiple times, or more likely both. This usually happens with the left button and sometimes the scroll wheel. I always figured it was mediocre shoddy construction (I’m looking at you, Logitech). However, now I suspect it is actually incredibly well-done and artfully crafted shoddy construction.

Specifically, it’s not that the mouse was broken, it was just dusty and needed a cleaning.

Well, let me try to clean the inside of the mouse I’ve been using. Okay, unscrew this screw, and… it won’t open. What? Okay, let me look up a video here. Okay, okay, yes. Oh. The other screws are under some smooth guard things to make moving the mouse smoother, and they actually peeled off some years back and I superglued them back on. Great.

Oh, even better, after those are unscrewed you need to unscrew more screws inside the mouse to get to the top part of the mouse. You have to go through the whole internal workings just to get to the top area. I’m starting to see why most instructions to clean this mouse say to just work a knife between the top and the clicky button area to get that apart. What should be a simple routine clean becomes a complete disassemblage that could easily result in doing something wrong and leaving it unusable.

Do they make tiny explosives that just release a rush of air instead of fire and smoke? I think that would be an easier way to clean this.

As long as I’m complaining, my dad’s old toolbox smells like a dead dog. He says it’s always smelled like a dead dog. ????
