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!
If I don’t come back, assume bears.
I subbed to my own Tumblr here b/c of narcissism but the vids don't seem to autoplay. In Chrome you can right click the pic and select play and it'll play
awaiting my arrival
Sometimes, you just gotta suck it up and say… nothing. Forever.
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!
This was basically our D&D group.

This concludes the "things I've made that you should probably buy" update.
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.

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):
So if you like that kind of stuff, please check out the stuff she has on her site!
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.
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
Vanilla Whipped Cream
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?
True comic. The computer was failing to get an IP address from the network several times a day for no apparent reason. My parent’s computer had The Real Problems™
I’m gonna be in Hamilton, Ontario in like a week for Con Bravo! Whoa! Are YOU gonna be there? Because I will be!
I’ll be doing a webcomic panel with I AM ARG (who is also a server pal/real pal) along with some other webcomic folks!
There are problems in this comic. Comparing Greece vs US debts is like comparing someone working minimum wage ($15k/yr) to someone making a million dollars a year (that is the relative ratio of our GDPs, US is 70x Greece's)
uh, excuse me but what about ronins?
This went around twitter and tumblr but still worth sharing
Whoa we need this. At least I need this. I'm awful at ending conversations.
Sudden-water-when-expecting-a-sweet-thing is incredibly jarring. Especially for some people!
According to a report from BBC News the Pope ‘plans to chew coca leaves’ during his visit to Bolivia. Although portrayed as a radical encounter, this is really a return to cocaine use after a long period of abstinence in the papal office.
Although the leaves are a traditional, mild stimulant that have been used for thousands of years, they are controversial as they’re the raw material for synthesising powder cocaine.
The leaves themselves actually contain cocaine in its final form but only produce a mild stimulant effect because they have a low dose that is released relatively gently when chewed.
The lab process to produce the powder is largely concerned with concentrating and refining it which means it can be taken in a way to give the cocaine high.
The Pope is likely to be wanting to chew coca leaves to show support for the traditional uses of the plant, which, among other things, are used to help with altitude sickness but have become politicised due to the ‘war on drugs’.
Because of this, recent decades have seen pressure to outlaw or destroy coca plants, despite them being little more problematic than coffee when used in traditional ways, and consequently, a push back campaign from Latin Americans has been increasingly influential.
However, two previous Popes have been cocaine users. Pope Leo XIII and Pope Pius X were drinkers of Vin Mariani, which was essentially cocaine dissolved in alcohol for its, er, tonic effect.
Pope Leo XIII even went as far as appearing in an advert for Vin Mariani, which you can see in the image above.
The advert says that “His Holiness THE POPE writes that he has fully appreciated the beneficient effects of this Tonic Wine and has forwarded to Mr. Mariani as a token of his gratitude a gold medal bearing his august effigy.”
But being a Latin American, the new Pope seems to have a much more sensible view of the drug and values it in its traditional form, and so probably won’t be giving away some of the papal gold after having a blast on the liquid snow.
