wow what the actual fuck neopets

This reminds me of when my brother Dave and I moved into a second floor apartment in Lancaster CA from Bakersfield. We had just gotten everything off the Uhaul and upstairs and were exhausted and sitting in the living room when we heared these tiny beeps coming from somewhere in the boxes stacked around us.

"What is that?" Dave said.

"My Tamagotchi is hungry," I said. They were a new fad and I’d bought one on a whim like everyone else in the country. "I packed it two days ago, so it’s probably really hungry. I want to start the game over anyway."

A few minutes passed and the beeps went off again. We sat motionless because, as I mentioned, we were exhausted. And then they went off again.

"Well, I’m not just gonna let it die!" Dave said and got up and started searching through boxes for it.

I ended up letting Dave keep it. He was a much more attentive virtual pet owner.

Here are yet more things from the Harmontown Activity Book I’m working on.

And while I have your attention…

Hey Everybody! Thanks for all the intrest in the project!

Several people have been sending me messages asking about how much it’s gonna cost when I’m finished and how they can get it. It’s not gonna cost anything. I’m gonna do a small print run of them and give them away at the next Harmontown taping my wife Bekki and I make it to. Then I’m going to make the entire thing available on the Internet (at a higher res than it’s been here) for you to all to print out and enjoy on your own.

BUT DON’T LET THAT STOP YOU FROM SHOWING YOUR APPRECIATION WITH MONEY!

Just direct that money towards Feral Audio by visiting:

http://www.feralaudio.com/support/

and making a donation. Seriously. Please go and do that. It will make this effort I’m putting in* worth actual dollars to the people who make the thing that we all clearly want to pay tribute to and that we feel a connection with. Alternately, you can also go through there the next time you want to buy something on Amazon and it won’t cost you a thing, but they’ll receive some money for your trouble.

Thank you for your consideration, and your words of encouragement have been humbling.

*(88 hours at this point, with at least three times that left to go based on how long I want this to be)

Basque Tongue Recipe

This is my version of my family’s Basque Tounge Recipe. It’s traditional at family gatherings. It takes five days to do it right, but you can rush it in a pinch.

Phase One: Simmer Mixture

- 1 two to four lb cow tonuge
- 2 large onions, diced
- 8-12 cloves of garlic, diced
- 2 Tbsp salt
- 1 lg bay leaf
- 1 Tbsp whole peppercorn
- 1 Tbsp celery seed powder

Wash tongue. Place in large pot, cover with water and the simmer the mixture. Allow to simmer (ie, low boil) on medium heat for about an hour per pound until tender. Periodically sure the tounge is mostly submerged

Once tender, remove from pot and peel off the membrane. place tongue in fridge overnight.

In the morning, slice tongue into thin slices (preferably with a deli slicer). Arrange sliced tongue in oblong glass baking dish. Don’t use a plastic dish or metal pan as either of these will adversely affect the taste of your marinade.

Phase two: marinade mixture
- 3 cups red wine vinegar
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup Ortega brand green chilis
- 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
- 12-18 cloves garlic, diced
- 2 cups minced garlic
- 4 Tbsp garlic salt
- 2 Tbsp pepper
- 1/2 Tbsp basil
- 1/2 Tbsp rosemary

Pour marinade into bowl and mix throughly. Then pour on top of your tounge slices in the baking dish, being sure the slices are completely covered.

Cover dish with plastic wrap and marindae in fridge for two to four days.

You’ll also want to make sure to leave a box of baking soda open in the fridge so that your refrigerator will eventually smell like something else.

Plate tounge on a large party platter. Spoon solid marinade garlic on top evenly. Serve with sourdough rolls.

Six animal-headed demons or jinn, all (except the blue elephant-headed demons) snapping their fingers. From a copy of ‘Ajā’ib al-makhlūqāt wa-gharā’ib al-mawjūdāt (Marvels of Things Created and Miraculous Aspects of Things Existing) by al-Qazwīnī (d. 1283/682). Neither the copyist nor illustrator is named, and the copy is undated. The nature of paper, script, ink, illumination, and illustrations suggest that it was produced in provincial Mughal India, possibly the Punjab, in the 17th century.


The others —all snapping their fingers like that— are clearly the elephant headed guy’s back-up dancers.

Harmontown Activity Book logo and first crack at cover ideas. 
Admittedly only seven pages in is a little early to be designing the cover, but I did it because I wanted something fun to draw and I’ve had this idea in my head for awhile.

Wife: Yeah, okay.
