More Dishes

My current dishwasher is getting worse and worse and is frequently requesting me to clean certain types of dirty things. I don’t like it!

Paper plates time! Turn my dishes issue into a trash issue!

Waste of Time

by Gregor


I’m considering doing a little streaming myself this weekend! I made a Twitch account a while back to play the Silent Hills teaser, and that was pretty fun to do! I’m not sure what to play this weekend, or even on what platform, but I’ll tweet out when I do. Feel free to follow me on Twitch and YouTube Gaming while I decide which one to stream on. What do you guys think?

I streamed on Twitch again today (first time on PC)! I’ve been having a lot of fun with all the customization. Here’s a link to my Twitch if you want to follow me!

Also, don’t worry I’m still focused on the comics first and foremost (streaming is just a neat side hobby for now).

Kitchen Tips

Household tip: Tired of buying so much toilet paper? Try unspooling the paper from the roll before using it. A single roll can last for multiple days that way, and it's much easier on your plumbing.

Underoos are BACK (And Magical)

by Tara


Remember running around in your Underoos, pretending to be your favorite superhero or cartoon character? Those days are BACK! (Ok, for some of us, those days never really left). Underoos has relaunched with a new line for kids AND grown-ups, so we can relive our childhood in style.

They sent me a pack of the C-3PO underoos (my fave Star Wars character I don’t care what anyone says), and while I won’t make you see me in all my Underoo glory, I can tell you that they’re ridiculously comfy. My slumber parties will never be the same! The tops can be worn out as normal (I plan to wear mine to a Star Wars event this week), and the underwear is large, silly, and comfortable, and will be perfect for cozy movie marathons at home.

They currently have DC and Star Wars shirts available in Men, Women, and Youth sizes. The women’s sizes are listed as “Juniors” but they’re a bit bigger than your average junior size.

And because Underoos is an awesome company, they want you to experience the ultimate geeky slumber party outfit as well. They’re going to give one reader a set of Underoos of their choice! Just fill out the Rafflecopter below.

Yep, this is me. Sometimes I'm not sure what's "right" to wear if I want to walk around the lake so I'll look out my window for a bit and take a sampling of passers-by and average their clothes choices.


Get into The Happy Zone!


I’m currently on a little vacation until Monday! I’ll be hanging out at a cabin in the middle of the woods with my girlfriend for the couple days and it’s going to be amazing. No internet!

Maybe I should learn to skateboard someday. I feel like I think about skateboarding more frequently than most.


I’m back from ConBravo and it was great! Met some fans, made some new fans and had some great chats. I even did a Webcomics panel with some other great webcomic artists! Great times!

I’ll see you next year, ConBravo!

Extraordinary photo of Earth fully illuminated

by Leticia Roncero
NASA Captures 'EPIC' Earth Image

This photo of Earth was taken by NASA on July 6th 2015 at a distance of one million miles away from Earth. All the images were captured by the camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite, a four megapixel CCD camera and telescope.

The photo was generated by combining three different images to create a photographic-quality result with a great level of detail. This is the first photo of Earth completely illuminated by the Sun in 43 years. The original was taken by American astronauts in 1972, during the latest Apollo (17) mission. In this amazing image, we can see the North and Central parts of the American continent and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean islands.

Be sure to follow NASA Goddard on Flickr for more photos and future images of our earthly home.

Cuba’s moment of transition

The United States and Cuba restored diplomatic relations today, beginning a new post-Cold War era. Earlier this summer, photographer Suzanne Kreiter traveled back to Cuba, 21 years after her first visit there for The Boston Globe. This rare moment of transition, as diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States resume, provides an opportunity to see old and new Cuba, past and future, through the same lens. Get the full multimedia experience and see what Cuba was like 21 years ago .

Video game art can be tough but it can easily look just tacky. I think my Bastion/Transistor and Zac Gorman Wind Waker art splits the uprights though.

Also my giant canvas print of the Great A'tuin is still wonderful and perfect.

Being a pseudo-adult is the best. I hope to keep it up forever.


All of the art on the walls of his apartment is from Katie Clark! I bought two of her arts two years ago at Emerald City Comic Con and I’m a big fan.

Here’s a better pic of one of the prints I bought (and one of the prints in that guy’s apartment):

How To Make Patissez’s Nutella and Salted Pretzel Freakshow Shake

by Tara


Patissez, a small bakery in Canberra, has created a monster. They’ve created and sell “Freakshows,” gigantic milkshakes topped with baked goods and spilling over with decadent ingredients like salted caramel, fudge, vanilla cream, and Nutella. The pictures have been everywhere the last few days, and when I first saw them, I stopped dead in my tracks. The milkshake was so ridiculous and messy and amazing and I had to have it. Unfortunately, plane tickets to Canberra are a bit out of my price range for a milkshake. So what’s a girl to do? MAKE HER OWN.

A photo posted by Pâtissez (@patissez) on

Three of their milkshakes incorporate baked goods made in house, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to compete with that. But one of them, the Nutella and Salted Pretzel shake, uses ingredients any of us can find at our local grocery store. Plus, who wouldn’t be up to the challenge of using half of a container of Nutella for one milkshake?

The tricks to this shake is to go big, get messy, and make as much as you can from scratch. Making homemade vanilla whipped cream gave it a nicer color, flavor, and texture than using the pre-made bright white stuff from a can. When it all came together, I stood back in awe. I felt a bit like Dr. Frankenstein: giddy at my monstrous creation, and thrilled that I had done it. But after consuming just a fifth of it? I had wondered what I had brought into the world. This shake is rich, huge, disgustingly delicious, and it should not be for one mere mortal. Please, drink responsibly and share this with your entire family.

Ok, enough disclaimers. Let’s get to the recipe.

Nutella and Salted Pretzel Freakshow Shake


  • 3 cups ice cream
  • Nutella. Just bring the whole container to this party. You’ll use a little under half of it.
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • mini pretzels
  • vanilla whipped cream (see recipe below)


  1. Place the ice cream, 1/3 cup Nutella, 2/3 cup milk, and 6 mini pretzels in the blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Take a mason jar and make a stripe around the inside of the jar with the Nutella.
  3. Cover the outside rim of the jar with Nutella–enough where pretzels can be pushed into it and stick.
  4. Place mini pretzels on the Nutella-covered rim of the jar in a decorative fashion.
  5. Pour the milkshake into the mason jar. Leave some room at the top for a cleaner experience, fill it to the brim if you want “milkshake waterfalls” to pour out everywhere.
  6. Place the vanilla whipped cream in a ziplock bag and cut off one of the corners, making a makeshift piping bag. Pipe the whipped cream on top of the milkshake. Don’t be afraid to go above the jar and over the sides a bit!
  7. Using a spoon, plop small amounts of Nutella onto the top of the whipped cream. Stick mini pretzels into the little Nutella pockets you’ve made.
  8. Crush 2-3 pretzels into dust and sprinkle it on top of the milkshake.
  9. Add some fun straws for flair, and enjoy!

Vanilla Whipped Cream


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, cold
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar


  1. Begin whisking the cream in a cold bowl. (If using a mixer, work up to using one of the faster settings)
  2. Slowly add the vanilla and powdered sugar while continuing to mix the cream.
  3. Mix until stiff peaks form.

The beauty of a milkshake is that it’s easy to experiment and fix your mistakes. Want it thicker? Add more ice cream? Want it thinner? Add more milk. Need more Nutella? Add more Nutella. (Or just lick the edge of the jar, for goodness sake. There’s SO MUCH Nutella everywhere.) I made all of the shake’s ingredients in denominations of 3s so you can easily increase or decrease the size.

If you could make your own flavor of freakshow shake, what would you include? I think mine would be a banana cookies and cream shake with chocolate whipped cream, multiple oreos, and an entire banana. Cause why not?
