This was my favorite of the illustrations in Schmuck Diaries. The illustration for the last chapter in the book, the story was very short but effective. Adam Kessler, Seth Kushner’s comic persona, has been dumped once again. Plans had been made to go to a nice restaurant in the city but with the turn of events he finds himself at the local chinese takeout. While waiting for his food a young boy named Ken, comes up to him and prophesizes that he’ll be married by the time he’s 32.Later when he gets home he opens up the fortune cookie that came with his meal that reads: “No one can walk backwards into the future.”
Four years later at the age of 32 he shows that fortune to his new bride.
Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.
Carlos Mérida (1891 – 1984) was a Guatemalan artist who was one of the first to fuse European modern painting to Latin American themes, especially those related to Guatemala and Mexico. He was part of the Mexican muralism movement in subject matter but less so in style, favoring a non-figurative and later geometric style rather than a figurative, narrative style. Mérida is best known for canvas and mural work, the latter including elements such as glass and ceramic mosaic on major constructions in the 1950s and 1960s. [cont. reading]
I and a few friends have been working on this game Eidolon for about 2 years now, and it’s finally releasing tomorrow. We were Greenlit a while back and will be on Steam, and we’ve been selling pre-orders for a long time, but not many people have heard of us, and our income so far averages to ~5 cents/hour. If we don’t get a good amount of eyes tomorrow, I’ll have to fold the company, which would be tragic for me since it’s been a long-time dream to make games for a living.
I don’t want to sound desperate, since for all I know we’ll bring in a lot of new players with release tomorrow, but it would be really great if you could help us get the word out with a reblog!
