Q: What is this PDF of which you speak Grymm? A: It’s the first of numerous Voodoo Walrus collections in PDF format! Featuring all the comics from the “Black and White Era” of Voodoo Walrus and the entirety of the “Hobogeddon” story! Well over 100 pages of comic-y goodness! And then some!
Q: That’s it? No extras? A: Oh there are extras. Such delicious extras… Sketches, creator commentary from myself, CreepKnight, and even some of the real life people behind some of the rest of the main cast. There’s also exclusive full color illustrations that can only be seen by snagging a copy of the PDF!
Q: Okay… How much? A: $10 USD. Payable by way of Paypal and downloadable straight from our site!
Q: I HAVE to use Paypal? Ugh. I don’t have a Paypal account! A: Not a problem! When you get to the Paypal interface screen, there’s also an option not by pay debit or credit card as a guest without having an account!
You also have the far slower option of paying by way of money order. But for that you’re going to need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss further details.
Q: I’m confused about the download. A: Once you make the payment, you should be redirected back to the Voodoo Walrus site and see the download link. If you have any problems, simply email us at email@example.com and we’ll fix you up!
Now he most pressing question on your mind might be “Why should I pay for a digital copy of comic pages I can read online for free?”
Well dear reader, you don’t have to. It’s merely an option. You’ll be able to get your primordial Walrus fix even without a net connection plus you’ll get to see some cool bonus stuff and very, very pretty art and that only other buyers get to see. You’ll also be helping to support the project and help keep it going as it does get a bit expensive to run a proper webcomic. There’s art supplies to buy. Licenses to keep. Web domains and hosts to pay. Let us not forget about the bribes we have to slip to the powers so that they’ll leave us to our own machinations after what happened in East Dakota.
And of course, if this PDF continues to prove successful, that means we have that much more drive to put together Volume 2, make it infinitely better than Volume 1 and pack it with even more awesome exclusive extras!
So consider snagging a little piece of digital insanity and joy for yourself! Just click here.
Social networks built around shared interests are far better than social networks built around simply “knowing” someone. The last thing Tumblr should do is encourage people to connect with those they know in real life.
I kind of disagree with this. A lot of the people I follow on Twitter and am friends with on Facebook are people that have interests similar to mine. So, since I was able to connect with Facebook and Twitter, I was able to add more people whose Tumblr blogs I know I’ll enjoy — and those people I just don’t know or don’t share that many interests with? I didn’t follow them on Tumblr, that’s all.
Alex, on his Facebook page, has been engaging with some of his relatives who are really anti-Obama. They started talking about his administration as if it were the Boise State football team, and, well… alex just kind of ran with it…
A MAGICAL WORLD WHERE BSU FOOTBALL WAS RUN BY MODERN AMERICAN POLITICS?
A JOCKSNIFFER.COM SPECIAL REPORT
Times are tough for Coach O and the once-mighty BSU football program. What has become of the Broncos? With Coach O’s contract running out in November, our investigators decided to dig deeper.
Currently, the Broncos defense is the worst in the league, offering token resistance to any and all offensive plays. A more cowardly and spineless bunch of dickhandlers has not been fielded on the gridiron or anywhere else, ever.
OLLY LEFTWING, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR
“We don’t really have what you’d call a playbook, per se. Or at all, really. We just do our own thing and hope it works out. I know it’s football, but I think that fairness and good sportsmanship are really important, y’know? I’m not interested in the score, I just want to make sure everybody has a good game. That’s a win for us. So: we know the other team wants to score touchdowns. My philosophy is: We’ve gotta stop them from doing that, so we make sure they don’t gain more than twenty yards on every single play.”
JS: Mister Leftwing, that just gives them first over and… How’s that working out for you?
“Next season, we’re thinking about extending it to 30-yards, because the other team still doesn’t seem happy.:
REGINALD RIGHTWING, BOARD OF TRUSTEES
“We’re just trying to do the right thing by the people of Boise. Our boosters have done enough for this program, and so we’ve returned half of their donations for the last ten years. Even though attendance is at record levels, we’ve cut ticket prices by 20%.”
“The problem is Coach O. Even though we’ve cut revenues down, he still insists on buying helmets and uniforms and gatorade. He’s handing out scholarships to players who don’t even have a Heisman. He’s a madman, and his spending is out of control. Hell, last year Reggie Tyler got two neckbones shattered and broke his asshole off at the Rose Bowl, and Coach O had the nerve to call a doctor at the fans expense. He’s a tyrant and he must be stopped”
JS: Mister Rightwing, I noticed that even though you’re against all this spending, you just installed a brand-new luxury skybox for yourself and high-level BSU boosters….
“Damn right we did. Great football is all about the donors. Nothing against the fans or the players, but nothing would be here without the boosters. We need to show proper appreciation to the men who made this program great, like Ike Garrity of Meridian Dodge/Chrysler, and Potato magnate Marzipan H..Dicktitz”
Mister Rightwing, you were head coach a few seasons back. Any advice for this Friday’s season opener?
“Yup. Remember awhile back when we had that real important game against Nebraska? Some said it was silly when I put half the team on the bus and sent them to play Montana instead, but our players fielded two iron-man squads, and they played their hearts out. God Bless Em.”
Mister Rightwing, those games are now in their 9,700,617th period of overtime, and many of your best players are badly injured. The fans left the stands six years ago.
“Yeah well, the problem is that Coach O is a pussy.”
STEVEN “CRAZYPANTS” DICKFERBRAINS, QUARTERBACK (THE TEA PARTY)
“Coach O is a total idiot. None of his plays work, and when I take the field, I make sure to prove it. The only plays that work, the only plays that REAL BOISE FANS like, are the 10-32 Sneak Option, and the Long Bomb. Nothing else works, nothing else ever wins ballgames. Those are the only two plays I’ll listen to. If he calls a run play, I’ll throw the ball into the stands. If he calls another pass play, I will stick the ball up my own ass with both hands, just to show him. You see that Coach O? You call a power right post, and the ball just winds up in my ass, every time. R-3 Sweep? My ass. The Philadelphia Twister? My ass.”
“The Cleveland Cross-Fake? Can you guess where that goes? In. MY. ASS.”
Mister Dickferbrains, you seem really obsessed with stuffing things up your—-
“Shut up, I hate fags.”
COACH O (guess who?)
“Oh God I’m tired. I’ve been a BSU fan all my life, and the day I was offered the Head Coach position here was the proudest day of my life. Little did I know: the BSU program is completely filled with total goddamn assholes. Every single last one of them is spineless, corrupt, or utterly fucking insane. Some of them are all three. We win a game, half the fans boo. We lose, half of them cheer.”
Coach O, you’re the most divisive coach in BSU history. Some fans love you, some hate you. Plans for next season?
“Honestly: trying to pull this bunch of dumbshits together is like trying to carry diarrhea in both hands. The only thing I can think of is next season, get in up to my shoulders and try to win a goddamn ballgame.”
JS: Coach O, any idea how you can do that?
“Oh man. I’ve got some ideas. The Board wants me to cut expenses, and there’s some ways we can do that, but we’ve got a big program and it costs money. Let’s say we bring the ticket prices back up to $45-$100, and stop refunding checks from Donors. I know nobody’s made out of money, but I bet that most Boise fans would rather pay $45 to watch their team win than pay $30 to watch them lose. Once the program stops losing money, I’d like to encourage my DC to pull his head out his ass, and I’d like my offense to occasionally let me call a play. On my headset, all four periods, every single game, my offensive line just says NO. Not Hut or Hike or any sort of audible, they just say no. And then my QB does… that thing he does.
How the hell is anybody supposed to coach under these circumstances?”
JS: So, Leftwing, Rightwing, Dickfer… What do you think of Coach’s plan?
DICKFER: NO NONO NO NO NO NO NO also Coach O is actually a Notre Dame fan
RIGHTWING: NO, and really the problem is freeloading students who get tickets for FREE (rages)
LEFTWING: I don’t know, what do you think?”
I would also like to note: I know in this metaphor that the team is sometimes the military and the fans are the people except when they’re not. Shut up.
Every year, the big four (and their kid brother, the CW) announce what shows have been picked-up and which shows have been cancelled during the annual “Upfronts,” where they pitch their fall slate to advertisers. It seems like each year…
“And this is the true measure of how far we’ve come as a nation: in like five years, the prime talking point from Republicans about people who support gay marriage has gone from ‘It will destroy society via turtle-fucking’ to ‘Oh, of COURSE you’re for it! You’ll say anything popular to get re-elected!’”—JON STEWART, on criticism by Republicans that President Obama announced his support for marriage equality simply because he wants another term in office, on The Daily Show (via inothernews)
I do now! I used to not be able to see without contacts or glasses more than about five inches in front of my face. In 2010 I had PEW PEW EYE LASER surgery (aka LASIK), and since then I’ve had 20/20 vision.
It’s been a long, cold winter. The Geek Life farms were hit particularly hard with a poor turnout of crops since no one accepted our pleas for help and requests for cattle as farming is so MySpace right now. But thankfully our stables were kept nice and warm thanks to our Arc Reactor, and that means the Geek Life Competition Stalk is ready to fly some awesome swag right to your door!

NBC’s upfronts are close, and our show is in desperate need of another season.
The ratings aren’t that good and the these two weeks are crucial to the fate of the show, unless NBC already made a decision (which is entirely possible): upfronts are on May 15th, while the last three episodes of this season will air on May 17th. They’ll not count for the decision and therefore we MUST pull good ratings during this and next week.
Watch the show live, tell your friends to watch the show live, find a unicorn, make sure that this season isn’t the last one for the Greendale Seven. Let them graduate!
The works of Joss Whedon may be incredibly, sometimes annoyingly, popular with us denizens of the internet, but one aspect of this fan community that many outsiders are unaware of is how studied his work is in the academic community. You may think I should put “studied” in sarcastic quote marks, but I can’t think of a single TV show other than Buffy the Vampire Slayer that…
