Thanks Cool...or something

So, Cool bought me gmod for some reason...ugh. NO I WILL NOT PLAY IT WITH YOU!!!! But, I am curious and I've decided to use this gift to make a regular web comic based on the various things us minders do in our spare time. It will not be regularly updated but I hope to do one or two a week ad minimum.

The regular characters will be probably:

Barney as played by Myself
Shephard as Krimsin
Freeman as Cool
Male 07 as Curtis (either that or I'll use something else for him, can't have two Freemans)
Chell as Cyh
and Simon is to be decided (probably find a Parker model somewhere, or someone who looks like Hendrix)

I'll play around with it this weekend and see what I can come up with and it will take me a while to get used to working with it but, once I have it down, expect some hilarity. I'll probably create a new blog entirely for this comic and, trust me, it will be funny.

A late Happy Holidays

A late "Happy Holidays" everyone. I hope you guys had a good time celebrating whatever it is that you celebrate (be it some kid getting born or a bunch of lights or something else) and that you don't drink too much on New Years (I'm looking at you Jared =_=).

Anyway, hopefully we'll be doing a Mind the Gap episode tonight so that should be up soon.

Stupid Drivers

Long rant about an idiot driver today:

So, I was driving along the freeway this morning to work in the snow and one lane is pretty much unplowed and the other has bare pavement so it's reasonably good driving in that lane.

I'm doing 60 MPH a ways behind a truck (flashing speed limit was 45, normal speed limit is 65) and quite content with that speed. Then, some asshole in a white sedan comes roaring up behind me. They tailgate me for a few minutes and then decide to pass me. As they're going by me they start revving their engine (which sounds like it was about to die), not sure why, maybe the snow was so thick they couldn't get by me? Anyway, I realize that they're not going to pass me so I start to slow down to let them by...but so do they. Whatever, I speed up and they drop back behind me.

They then decided to start tailgating me about 2 feet from my bumper, doing 60! They flash their lights at me a bunch and start acting super reckless. I have no idea what their problem is. So, I give this big exaggerated shrug and look in the rear-view mirror and they're motioning for me to pull over! What the hell? As if! I wasn't really sure what to do to make them shut-up so I decided that the best thing to do was nothing and let the assholes suffer. I was wondering what they would do if I had to brake because they'd be buying me a new car for sure.

Anyway, they continue flashing their lights and trying to get me to pull over (which is stupid, even if I do it's not like the truck in front of me is going to do the same, or any of the number of other people in front of the truck). After about a mile of this we come to an off-ramp and they swerve over and fly up it still doing 60. The off-ramp is also unplowed and I can see them skidding everywhere. I was hoping so much to see them spin off the road (where they can't hurt anyone).

If I ever see that car again I'm going to slash it's tires. One of the most reckless drivers I've seen in a while, and most of the people in Maine are pretty sane when it comes to driving in the snow.

So, did you know?

So, did you know that today the first commercial rocket was launched into orbit? Something tells me you didn't (except for Cyh, she probably heard it this morning and thought, "damn rockets, I'm trying to sleep here!" :P). This is amazing, I mean, this is the privatization of space! The door is now open to commercial and private space travel. I don't know about you but I'm stoked, this is just awesome! Then again, I feel that way almost every day, seriously. Human beings may suck and I hate most of you but, damn, if we don't do a lot of really cool things. We should all step back and realize this more often.
