Screwing Over Your Neighbors the Easy Way.

I was taking a look at the Con Edison website and noticed that you can log into your account and make changes to your Con Edison payment plan or cancel service all together. All the information you need is someone's account number. There is no password required or any other information required. When you log in, one of your options is "close my account". So what's to stop someone getting your Con Edison account number and shutting off your gas and power?

A quick web search shows the Con Edison account number for the "Hudson River Club". It's a defunct account now. But that's not the point.

Drawing of the Week (Dangling Mouse)

No, I have no idea why I drew this. There isn't any secret meaning. Basically I wanted to get away from drawing people and drawing a mouse in peril is a very cartoony thing to do.

Ah Film How Far You've Fallen

OK, looks like polaroid film has hit rock bottom. In the drug store on a forgotten peg board dangling from a hook. It just wants to be your friend.

Forget about those digital things. It's me! Remember me? Film! If you buy me, I'll give you some free candy. A $2.99 value! Aww come on, where are you going?

Denim Freaks?

This is why I love the internet. There is a group, forum, website or wiki for every stupid thing in existence. Here is a forum for denim freaks. Jeans is one of those subjects that I pay almost no attention to. I buy a pair that fits and is roughly a nice color. On this forum you can read literally thousands of posts including posts like this for "Samurai S5000" owners ....

"I think the best way to size unsanforized denim is to compare to the washed sizing to jeans that you already own."

I had to look unsanforized up on wikipedia.

Tortuga at Continental

Old photo from a now defunct band but fun nonetheless. Continental has since closed and re-opened so maybe there is a Geek Farm concert in its future. Thanks to Erica for posting the photo.

The Secret Life of Doc Aquatic

Here's something you get when you live in a loose copyright world. New stuff out of old stuff. Halcyonsnow a frequent contributor of the 700 hoboes project used one of my hoboes in a comic. The other hobo he's referring to in the barrel is Beef Grease Porter Dripchin. Great stuff.

Drawing of the Week (Surprised)

Every once in a while I do a quick doodle which looks like a real cartoon or looks better than something that I've spent alot of time on. Another study in facial expressions. Surprise.

It's That Time of Year Again!

The time of the year when every local newspaper in the country starts publishing pictures of witches that have crashed into trees. Oh, never saw that one before! Oh, man! It's a witch and it crashed into a tree! Was she drunk? Har dee har har. When I used to manage a news clippings department, I used to collect these things and post them on the wall. I'd have hundreds of different photos by November. It's about time the newspapers gave this joke a rest.

Bone Idol

Just spent about 10 minutes playing with Bone Idol a fun little flash toy where you can make things out of bones. Above is my interpretation of the Nut Sack Squirrel a frequent cliche' on

Hey, Wait a Minute!

I see, that! Not till you're 21.

The Governor Bradford Motor Inn

I don't care what the brochures say, "The Governor Bradford Motor Inn" looked like a dump to me. (found in Plymouth Mass)

Competition, Internet Style

A quick study in internet shopping which took all of one Google search and about 5 minutes. I was looking to see if anyone sells "Bug City Candy Tarts" over the internet. I did a quick search to find who sells them in bulk. Particularly the small case of 12 jars. Here are the interesting results for the price of the identical item. I didn't factor in shipping but assumed that shipping was fairly standard.

In decending order.$25.92$19.80$19.80$18.89$16.93$11.95$10.04$9.95

Um... candydirect how do you stay in business?

A great test to check your head on a drawing.

I haven't posted a drawing of the week in a while even though I have been doing them. Here's an example of why. I was drawing this portrait and thought that it was coming out fairly well until I flipped it horizontally and saw how really warped this face was. People start to lose perspective when they stare at something for to long. Just goes to show that flipping a drawing horizontally or in any direction is a good check to see if you're totally gone off the rails.
