I Wanna Rock

An actual incident that happened to me when we were cleaning up the lab. We found a whole bunch of “art objects” (sculptures or models/tiny reproductions thereof) and some rock slabs that had been used in a 3-D imaging project. We sent them to MIT’s mailing list for used stuff that’s up for grabs … and by the next day almost all the rocks were gone.

This comic almost got filed with the other Real-Life Random Acts of Stupidity, except that neither D nor I did anything stupid this time. Also, I debated having a “Completely Unamused” face for the last panel, until D pointed out that “CO-O” is a signature NW pose. J’s never done it before though…

d341 111101 Boats 2011 Comics


Well, November’s update a little early as I’m gong to be busy next couple weeks.

We’ve certainly got a lot of mileage out of boats this year. This is probably the fifth or sixth relevant update. I don’t really remember what prompted me to draw this series (obviously the boats did, but I’m referring to the fact that I basically never draw 4koma about “The Adventures of D and J”, regardless of whatever stupidly funny things we do), but here it is in it’s full three-page glory.

J agrees that, for the most part, this accurately depicts all the silliness that went with the first boating outing (except for maybe the “pew” on the propeller thing). I think J also agrees that the drawings relatively accurately depict the physical state of me and him…

J291 – 1-Up

Happy new year everyone!

This was a random 4koma idea I’ve had sitting around since who-knows-when. The professor is just a throwaway character, but he sure was fun to draw.

Also, the CO-O tag returns!

Also, gonna leave you guys with this rather smoothly fan-animated video.

29 – Interruption || Last Time


Derek goes to the Arizona swim meet again. This means, the plot for Starcrossed is now one year old, since he first came up with the plot at the same meet last year. What’s really funny is that the namesake of the main character in Starcrossed hasn’t even read the whole thing yet. At least, I think not…


Well, today’s update is two days early!!! Or actually, it’s one day early, since I always update on Thursdays anyways. Why? Well, I probably won’t have internet in Arizona, or at least not at an extravagant price.

Well, let’s not go into a life story since I don’t have that much time right now, but I’ve been swimming competitively for more than four years now, and I used to REALLY dislike it, but you know, times change.

So, for the seconds year in a row, I qualified for this regional level meet in Arizona (Though only in one event, but you get freebies for making it), but don’t get the idea that that’s really good, since it isn’t. The qual time I made was one of the slower ones, proportionally, etc.

So I’ll be gone for four days, this Thursday to Sunday and back on Monday, having raced more than two miles by that time. (Yep, I do long distance – 1650, 1000, 500, 200 Free + Albeit randomly, 50 fly). Erm… yeah, not much rant there, but whatever.

Some site stuff – I should write offensive stuff more often, and make J-san fill his rant columns more often. I don’t think I made a single outright COMPLAINT anywhere in the last rant, contrary to his rant, he just interprets it that way because I pissed him off. Whee.
