The new PD.com

Ah yes, a main site now. Lovely. And finally.

Check it.

So it's slightly less funny around here...

Sorry folks, no comic this weekend. And depending on the situation at my pathetic excuse for a job, there may not be one this weekend either. But don't worry, I shall make it up to you. The next 1 or 2 comics that I do will be DOUBLE SIZED. Woo!

I have no title for this...

There appears to be an epidemic of MySpacing where I work. As anyone who reads this regularly knows, I really never got into the whole fad. Sure I joined...only because someone asked me to. **Looks at CM**

But yeah, it's come to my attention that probably half my office is on it. I have nightmares of getting a bulletin on my page one day announcing the first annual company MySpace Bash. I will seriously have to throw myself in front of a very large moving object. (No nazi jokes!)

I can see it now -- CEO comes walking in going, "Hey guys, sorry about your bonuses that you never got, I spent it all on my sex change operation. Don't I look FABULOUS?!" *lifts up shirt*

And I'll be so fucking drunk, due to the horrendousness of the situation, that I'll be yelling, "Oh fuck yeah, I can't even see the airbrush lines! Now please excuse me while I rip my fucking eyeballs out of my head."



I'm so fired. But who gives a fuck? It's FUNNY!


Edit:…

It's time for some spring cleaning when...

...you find 4 cell phone chargers plugged into the outlets behind your bar, belonging to the first 4 cell phones you've previously owned.

Wha!

50-75 visitors a day, and no one sees the link to PD Cel #91 was broken? You all FAIL!

Scariest PC Game Moment Ever

Image
It takes a lot to make me jump out of my chair and scream like a little girl. I think the last time it happened was when I found out how many games-to-movies Gooey Boob was directing. Horrors!

But, in a more conventional means, I've been playing Condemned: Criminal Origins. The game is pretty good. Its graphics suffer from consoleitis, and therefore are far from top-notch. However, the story and gameplay more than make up for this shortcoming. The game plays like a cross between CSI and Se7en.

Anyway, more to the point, in the game I'm tracking down the whereabouts of this serial killer who is killing serial killers. Serial killers that *I'M* trying to catch. There is only one more for him to cross off his list, and I'm trying to get to him before this maniac does. I concluded who this serial killer will be going after next, and begin tracking the would-be victim down. First I find his lips. Then I find his arm. Finally, I find the rest of him in a locker in …

It's DONE!

I've finished it. It is done.

Greatest. RPG. Ever.

Everything's Better With Monkeys

First, a story. As I was washing my hands at the sink behind the bar in my room, I noticed this protrusion of water seeping out from the cupboard, at the floor, directly beside the sink. My first thought was, of course, that I have a leaky sink. So I checked the pipes.....but they were all dry. Next, since it had rained rather heavily the night before, I thought that perhaps the water was coming in from outside. (This has happened before. I was flooded twice last year.) Nope, not coming from outside either.

So, just on a whim, I opened the cupboard directly beside the sink, and I see a bit more water. Looking a bit further, I then found the culprit: a carton of calcium chloride.

For the unfamilar, calcium chloride ABSORBS water. People use it all the time to dry out basements or other damp places. So yeah, it was absorbing the moisture down here, and depositing it into my cupboard. LOL! I don't even remember BUYING a carton of calcium chloride, let alone putting it into…

Still Oblivious

Image
Several new games have come out recently, and I've been slowly getting to them. (See previous post.) However, I keep finding myself back into Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

I've reached Level 6, and my character is starting to be quite the badass. He's deadly with both the bow and with a sword. I'm now a member of the Blades -- the secret group that protects the Emperor. Think Secret Service. Or, in more traditional terms, Maji. (The bodyguards of the Egyptian pharaohs.)



Anyway, I'm not directly assigned to the Emperor himself. Actually, the Emperor was killed at the beginning of the game, and his son hasn't yet been crowned. He's in hiding in the secret Blades hideout, high in the mountains. Before he can become Emperor, the Amulet of Kings must be found, and that is the task laid out before me. I'm currently en route to the secret shrine of this evil cult that stole the amulet. Sadly, these cursed portals to Oblivion are opening up every where I…

Ubersoldier

You'd think that a game with the word "uber" in the title just has to be good. Well, it doesn't.

Really, there were only two reasons why I decided to download this game and try it out. One was simply because it's a shooter, and I must play every game in that particular genre. The second was because it's nazi killing, which is my second favorite past time. Ever. (My number 1 favorite past time, of course, is zombie killing.)

Well, the game has a cool enough premise: You play a German soldier. A *dead* German solider. You're brought back to live through a twisted nazi experiment gone awry, and you end up obeying the orders of the Allies, rather than your nazi counterparts. Killing ensues.

The graphics are 5 years outdated. They're dull. Boring. Blah.

The voice acting is horrid. The movement of the story sucks.

There is one really cool thing tho -- you have the power to erect this translucent shield all around you that stops bullets. Neat. I…

Updates. Woo!

For you special people who know the address, the Uber Compilation has been updated.

No Score and Twenty-Five Years Ago......

...I was born.

And it was good.

And it still is good. As you can see. Very good. And blurry. And....and why the FUCK is the room spinning so damn much?!

Near Miss

So I'm driving home from work last night, and I'm on the Route 60 expressway, which constitutes a majority of my drive. I'm nearing my exit to get home, and am about to cross the bridge that goes over the park. Suddenly, a hubcap off the piece of shit car that was in my way comes flying off, and rolls towards me. Luckily, the thing veered off to my right and smacked into the car beside me instead. Whew!

Counter-Struck! shall continue...

After posting Issue 001 yesterday, I've gotten plenty of positive responses to it, so I'm going to continue releasing them. (Not that I wouldn't have anyway, considering I'm doing these primarily for my own entertainment. But it's good to see other people are enjoying it as well.)

The plan is to release 1 issue a week, over the weekend. So you can watch for Issue 002 sometime between Friday night and Sunday night. Yar!

Counter-Struck!

Reading a few web comics created using screenshots of Half-Life 2 inspired me to create my own. So, check it out! Yar!
