227 - Suprisingly Non Anti-Semetic Defacement

In all fairness, I haven’t been in a public convenience covered in graffiti in awhile. That probably says more about my resistance to shit in public and less to do with a respect for a nice clean wall. That being said, for all the Dubliners in the audience, The Ilac Centre’s toilets are pretty fucking swanky. Seriously, hot water, paper towels AND great hand dryers. Truly, a tramp’s delight. And that is enough chatter about toilets.

Does anyone want a Drastic Wikipedia page?? Wiki is pretty strict about web comic based articles, so I’m hesitant. And they really frown on guys creating their own articles. This has nothing to do with me not having a fucking clue about to how to start a article, oh no. No sir.

See you on Wednesday.

Adventures in Uncledom, part 1

Hooray, more comics!  Drastic’s Adam hasn’t grown a beard since the last time I updated, this is actually me, well, a more accurate representation of me rather than the rather 2 dimensional sideburn version of me.  This is an actual conversation I had with my nephew Ben when I saw that crazy children’s version of Noah’s Ark in Ben’s book pile.  Christ.  I guess it’s a fun story, sort of, but still, hardly a tale for impressionable youths.  Hey, Noah, his family and all those animals are ok, but everyone else? Drowned.  Dead at the bottom of the new ocean.  Ok, night night. Boooo<br />

Not much to talk about tonight, but there will definitely be a Drastic on Friday.  Why am I so confident?  Because its already drawn.  Hooray.<br />
See you later then.

Adam.

  It can be a slang for Euro, too

I saw an Asian lady at an outside restaurant table trying to eat some lunch while wearing a surgeon’s mask. My head was filled with so many questions. Like, how would she eat that lunch?? Surely the mask would get in the way. I presume she was having lunch, there was a bowl of soup right there in front of her. But then, wouldn’t removing the mask just wreck the sterile mouth situation she was creating with the mask?? But then, why order soup??? I was a social rubix cube. It was almost too much to handle for that rainy Saturday afternoon. I of course, didn’t say anything to her, so I was left with the puzzle.

So, Drastic hasn’t been around in 6 months. I really didn’t want to get this far, but I did. I hit a wall and I couldn’t do anything, let alone do comics.. It got to the point where I couldn’t even hold a pen. I let alot of things get to me, But I think I’m over the worst of it now. So yeah, good times ahead. All aboard the funk train.

Thank you for being so patient.

Drastic 222: Literally ANY excuse to say "Jillikers"

I don’t mean to sound melodramatic, but I’m convinced the Meat Council of Ireland have given me AIDS. I can’t prove it, but I can tell. They’re the guys. Everyday around 4pm, well to be honest, Deal or No Deal, I’ve been crashing out, maybe a sugar crash, but whatever. Anyway, Monday afternoon, I go to a furniture store and I nearly faint, and I haven’t levelled out since. My mom rang me this morning and I ran over to my room to get it, 2 hours later, I’m still exhausted. I have no idea what’s going on with my body. Well, I do, someone gave me AIDS, probably the Meat Council of Ireland. Or KFC. Anyways, that’s why the comics late. I’ve been extremely lethargic. Lethargic with AIDS. Possibly.

So yeah, voting time!! Hope you like it. You guys ok with the lolcats??? Should I try harder and not do them anymore?? So it turns out there are four Seasons of Monk in my House and no one told me. What the hell?? Monk is awesome and now I have four seasons to watch!! Well, I have seasons 2 to 4, as the first season went to Brussells. Anyway, I love Monk. It’s a great show. Fun for all the family.

Am I a hipster?? I have no idea. In all honesty, I don’t care about it all THAT much. Except for organisational purposes, labels aren’t for me. Which I guess is a pretty hipster thing to say. It’s a fucking spider’s web. Anyway, there’s this band you have to hear called The Guest Bedroom. You’ll love them. It’s ok if you’ve never heard of them before. They’re new.

Drastic 221:  Blessings and Peace be upon his name?? Is that the Guy??

Am I the only person to injure himself while trying to put a Tupperware lid on?? Jesus Christ, my thumb is still is sore. I can’t have pulled a muscle doing this have it?? It’s really sore. I just know know Gill is going to tell me my problem is that I don’t eat enough meat. I have a finely honed sense for these things. Speaking of that, health food shops are fucking scary places. I went in there to get some iron, folic and B12 supplements (because I’m awesome) and I really wanted a bacon sandwhich after I left so I wouldn’t be associated with those people. Ewwww. Seriously.

Bruno, does this voting incentive count as taliking about Star Trek?? I hope not. I think this week will see the end of the lolincentives, as I need to keep it fresh. Maybe. If I don’t have any ideas next week, who knows??

So yeah, Icky Thump is a pretty badass album. I should preface that saying I really want to punch Jack White in the face and I still really like this album. Its very tasty. It’s loud, guttural, bluesy as all hell and pretty inventive. It’s a good record. If the title track doesn’t make you want to pick up a guitar and rock the fuck out, you’re totally dead inside. Seriously, it rocks. So yeah, check it out.

I’m in your livejournal, giving you commentz

I can't think of anything to rant about today, I'm far too hungover. I usually don't get hangovers, but when you break out the 12 year old scotch at 3am after a full night of drinking, you're never gonna wakeup the next day intact.


Today's comic comes from this product which I think is pretty cool! Just in case anybodies ever looking to get me a present. Adam, I'm just sayin, last year all I got was you coming home from Canada. How about this year you get me something I actually want! :P

Anyway, well done to all my computer science buddies that got their
results. Mine are out next week, so I'll be spending most of my days
working in drunken fear......
See you all on Wednesday then!
Later days!

Drastic 219: "News" Travels fast, I guess.

Seriously, I’m not making this up. To avoid the effort of reading through a bunch of emails like I had to suffer through with that Pauly Unstoppable debacle, I don’t really think Heavy Metal Fans are retards. But Slayer does suck balls, right?? I mean, come on, give me that, at the very least. They’re just awful. Am I right?? I think so. I just realised if any of those indignant body mod people are still reading (after I insulted everything they hold dear) and they like Metal, boy will I have some very whiney and irritating communiqués. Yes, I said communiqués. I think I’m allowed.

So yeah, voting
time!! This is really a merging of the lolcat theme and Star Trek IV
. That was a good movie. They had whales, even though Young Denny shot no one. He threatened a bunch of surgeons with a gun, but it’s just not the same. SHOOT SOMEONE FOR GOD’S SAKE!! He shoots people in the other four films, yeah?? I hear number 2 is full to the brim with Klingons. Please tell he shoots them. Denny Crane. Are they’re homeless people in space?? Certainly rabbi’s?? I bet the rabbi’s of the future have awesome beards. Denny Crane.

Also, as you can see, Gill’s Back. YAAAY. I guess. Nah, seriously, its great to have her back in the fold, and she’ll be taking a much more prominent role this time round, no matter how much she doesn’t want to. It’s not slavery. I think. Anyway, the main reason she’s back is that well, I’ve been pretty off for the last well, ages now. I’ve been feeling pretty rough and empty, and while Drastic is one the best things I have ever done, I just couldn’t do it. It’s also fair to point out that a whole bunch of shit got neglected, not just the webcomic. So gill is back to encourage me and failing that, nag me back into doing this three days a week.

Thank you all for your patience.

Seriously, you’ve been awesome

And so I return, from the depths of hell of which I was sent. Adam asked me to help out with Drastic again. Apparently, without my constant complaining, the lack of updates were becoming a problem.

However hopefully, we'll get this bandwagon back on track.

Tom Waits ruined music for me. I recently realised that once I became a fan of him, I stopped finding new music or bands. I used to discover artists all the time, but nowadays I find myself just continually returning to Mr. Waits. Once I figured out I was doing this however I thought I should change. So I've started asking some of my friends for a list of their top 5 favourite artists. I get a few songs and figure out if I like them or not. So far I've avoided my friends who like metal, out of fear of becoming more retarded. Right now I've been listening to a strange mix of God is an Astronaut and Regina Spektor.
Life has become very surreal.....
The rest of my time has been taken up by Ogame. Which is fantastic and easy! I strongly recommend people to play.

Aside from that, I shall return Monday! Happy weekend!

Drastic 219: Literally "Tired of Being Sexy"

Man,CSS are ALL kinds of awesome. And true to form, I just thought they were Irish. I mean, they were on Phantom And they sound like the Warlords of Pez on sedatives, so I just joined the dots. Obviously, I came drew (if we’re sticking with the metaphor, a seriously wrong looking bunny. My bad. SERIOUSLY, I’M NOT A WHITE SUPREMICIST.

So why notvote to show the racists they can’t win?? Although this incentive has nothing to with stopping race hate, and everything to do with Boston Legal.

Ok, I’m off now, and I’ll write more on Friday about why the hell I haven’t been updating. It’s just been diffcult, and I’ve been having a hard enough time trying to write that this morning, and I’m running late now, so full explanations about stuff Friday.

Also, saw Wrath of Khan. It was pretty alright. By pretty alright, I mean totally awesome. I can’t wait to see the time travel one again. Hehe, Nuclear Wessels. Looking forward to it. Oh jesus, I’m becoming a Trekkie. As if I ddin’t already have a enough problems.
