Over at Lucky Kitty, The Wife posted some of her favorite “whatevers” of 2008 yesterday.

So now that we know what made Momma happy this past year, what about Daddy?

Here’s a quick list of some of my favorite things:

– Seeing my son wave “hello” to me and The Wife during his ultrasound

– Finally getting my goddamned A in Chemistry

– Reading the best Superman comic ever written: All Star Superman

– Joining Netflix

– Watching this:

– Finally owning one of these:

En garde, I'll let you try my Wu-Tang style

Also loves:

– Visiting all the crazy awesome blogs out there on the internet (I’m looking especially at you Kindertrauma)

– Bringing you Fetish Fridays on a semi-regular basis

– Pubic hair’s gradual comeback

– Oh, and porn…and records, vinyl records

It’s a short list, but I think you get a feel for what I was about in 2008…I hope everyone had a great 08 and here’s to a super fine 09!

C-C-Come On Everybody

Jive Bunny 08

Jive Bunny 08

Let me get this straight…Girl Talk is getting his dick sucked by everyone in 2008 because of his hipster Jive Bunny routine?

You’ve got to be kidding me…

Look, I’m all about nostalgia and that whole, “Hey, I totally recognize that song the Dj is mashing up with that other song I totally know,” but Girl Talk is the Judson Laipply of music.

Sorry kid, but Matt Dike and The Dust Brothers did it way better in 1989.

Robots And Donuts

The Endless Training

The Endless Training

I don’t know about youse guys, but I love robots…and I love donuts!

Thankfully there’s an artist who decided to to put two great tastes that taste great together! His name is Eric Joyner and I think he’s totally boss!

I found out about Mr. Joyner when I stumbled upon his book, ROBOTS & DONUTS at work the other day.

Here’s a brief description from the Dark Horse site:

“In Robots and Donuts Joyner celebrates the era of tin toy robots in a series of whimsical, thoughtful, sometimes tragic but always stunning paintings depicting mechanical men and women in outlandish and impossible settings.”

The painting on the cover of this book caught my eye…check it:

And what I found inside blew my mind….enjoy some choice samples:

Submissions Wanted

max Check it…The Wife and I have found out we’re having a boy!

I know, I know, pretty cool…but get this: We have successfully agreed on a first name for our little monster and he obviously already has a last name, but we’re stumped on a middle name at the moment.

We are working on a short list though. So far we have a few:

Vincent
Porter
Taylor
Kirby

A decent showing…but I figured I’d turn to my internet friends and ask for some suggestions to help us out. Y’all are all so creative and awesome, I just bet at least one of you has a good one!

Okay, ready? Put on your thinking caps and fill in the blank:

Quinn ______ Canacorn

I’ll have you know, The Wife has shot down the following:

“Kurt Russell” (in quotes of course)
Snake
Plissken
MacReady
Carpenter
Kojak
Rockatansky
Eastwood
Bronson
Sly
Bruno
Brando

Christ, the list goes on for days, but you get the idea….The worst part about all this middle name rigmarole was when she came up with one that I liked even more than Plissken, and then took it back! She said she was only joking….wanna’ hear it?

Quinn Tuscadero Canacorn

Now how bad ass is that? Pretty bad ass…but what do I know?

A Very Penus Christmas

Who's the blockhead now, Lucy?

Who's the blockhead now, Lucy?

You know, I’ve never really been a big fan of Charles M. Schulz‘s so-called “psychologically complex” and “indelible” comic strip, Peanuts.

Actually, the comic strip that ran during the 50s does contain some beautiful art and decent writing (not as good as Andy Capp though…heh, Andy Capp…his name’s a pun on handicap…oh, man…)…it’s the Peanuts from the 70s and 80s that I really just didn’t get then and certainly don’t get now.

Oh settle down you fucking jackals!
Like that’s the worst thing you’ve ever heard? It’s not like I professed my love for murdering children and raping old ladies! I just never got into some stupid cartoon about some depressed bald kid who had shitty friends and boring adventures.

I mean, really? Why watch that when I could watch something like this?

Did you see that? Savagery, Super-Science, and Sorcery!

Fucking Thundarr rules!

But I digress…Back to that blockhead, Charlie Brown. Maybe I could give Charlie another chance..but only if it wasn’t animated, had porn star, Belladonna, as Lucy, was written and directed by James Gunn, contained some sex, and ended with Charlie Brown systematically slaughtering every last one of these incredibly boring Schulz characters.

Sound too good to be true?

Feast your eyes on this this:

Now that’s what I’m talking about! Thanks, Mr. Gunn, for making this a wonderful Christmas after all!

So True…

Let Me Ask You This…
