I was at work during the first half of this game, but I caught the second half. Oh man, what a spectacular game! Im an american, but Brazil is my favorite team, the beautiful game and all that. I have to say though, I do dig the US's new uniforms, there's something delightfully european about them. Neymar was busting out all his tricks on the US defenders, making them look like fools. Surprisingly, the US didn't get completely manhandled in the second half. There were a ton of almost goals, that either hit the post or were deflected. Brazil's goalie had a great showing, blocking two attacks back-to-back. Marcelo, for Brazil, was all over the field, making plays. The game was highly aggressive, I like that, shows passion. The US almost made it 2-3, but Pato came in and got another goal for Brazil. God, what a great game.

Normally, I try to refrain from putting up a lot of videos on here, only because this blawg is mostly about the dumb peekchures I draw, but this is too awesome. Nitro circus in an over the top, insane, awesome, paintball battle. Enjoy.
This is pretty cool, it's a video done by GoPro featuring Mark Healey, a big wave surfer and overall adventurer bro, and Roberta Mancino, a base jumper and skydiver. Mancino also appears in some commercial for some phone, it has her jump out of a plane and the guy taking pics of her with it. I love the ocean.
Whenever I hear something about South Africa, I always want to ask "but where in South Africa?" If you're unaware, the region at the southern most tip of Africa is called South Africa. The dotted line I drew is roughly the half point of Africa. In theory, everything above the line should be north Africa and everything south should be called south Africa. You so silly, Africa.
A girl I work with asked me to draw this on her cup. Apparently, it is Kevin from UP! I have never seen UP. This bird just looks so retarded to me. Since it is retarded, it must enjoy wrestling. I imagine John Cena is his favorite.
Yesterday, I was awoken by the police at my door because of a status I made on facebook. Isn't that the most retarded thing you've ever heard? The status was "silly rabbit, school shootings are for kids." This is what my tax dollars are going towards. I still think the status is hilarious.
I wasn't mad, more so dumbfounded. Whoever reported me, I would like to take them out to dinner and listen to all their thoughts on issues.
May 5th was Free Comic Day, if you were unaware, so I headed to the local comic book store in Jonesboro, AR, called Galaxy Comics and got my comic on. Here's what I bought.
Bought this one sort of based on the cover and surely Wolverine fighting the XMEN would be a good book, right? Well, this apparently was a part of a series where some sort of demon had possessed Wolverine and was trying to take over his body. The majority of the story shows Wolverine in his own head fighting this goopy looking demon, I mean goopy in a good way of course. The rest of the XMEN sort of corral Wolverine away from civilians until some womernz XMEN go inside his head and help the real Wolverine out for about five minutes. It was okay, but I expected for ACTUAL fighting between Wolverine and the XMEN.
This is the other book I bought, and oh man is this one a winner. I have always liked the idea of Deadpool, but I had never actually taken the time to read any. I saw this and figured this would be a great place to start. It has New Mutants #98 where Deadpool sort of gets his ass kicked, Deadpool's Circle Chase and Sins of the Past runs which were so well written and illustrated. These had that gritty, excessive ink, busy panels, look of comics which I love. The last thing included in this collection is Deadpool #1 which was entirely too clean for my taste, clearly done with photoshop. It was written alright, but I don't know if I wanna check out the rest of the first actual series of Deadpool. We'll see.
I was bored the other day and I thought I'd try my hand at some origami. I have always wanted to at least be able to make the crane. And don't kid yourself, you've always secretly wanted to be able to make this. I watched a youtube tutorial on it, here it is.
Watch this vid, learn how to make the crane, bust it out at parties or use it as a conversation starter. Bitches love origami. You've always wanted to be able to do this so stop being a dick about it and do it.
last night Adult Swim did a bump with a guy rapping about how they need to bring toonami back and it was actually really good. Turns out the guy has a lot of good songs about cowboy bebop, gundam, and video games. His name is Richie Branson. Here's the one about cowboy bebop that I especially enjoy.
Why, yes, I firmly believe in the Pacman method of drawing which is to just throw a bow on something and now it is recognized as a girl. Now, while drawing this I got to wondering if there are real squirtle squad sunglasses out there and oh man, look at what I found on ebay.
and while looking up sunglasses, my mind went to the Matrix, and Morpheus' sunglasses in the movie. I swear any time I watch the Matrix, I spend about 20% of the movie trying to figure out how he kept them on his head. In case you don't know what Im talking about, here's a pic.
