The new XCOM game uses some kind of abstracted currency, so it isn't really "bucks" that you're getting in exchange. Still, it's a big difference from the first game where you could fund your entire operation by selling alien corpses to wealthy perverts. (That's always where I assumed they were going.)

There's a thing about this in the news every once in a while. If you need a job, it's harder to find a job.

Considering how long the economy has been in the toilet, you'd think common sense would tell recruiters that there's good people people who just got unlucky. The secret is, all recruiters were replaced by robots in the early aughts, and nobody has figured out how to turn them off yet. They're all like BEEP BOOP INTERNAL TRAINING IS FOR SUCKERS.

I've read Richard Thompson's cartoons for a long time. When I think about Sunday mornings where I grew up in Maryland, I think about the sections of The Washington Post strewn across the dinner table. In high school, Richard's Poor Almanac was the highlight of the Style section, and I remember the first Cul de Sac strips appearing in the Washington Post Magazine.

That's why it's such a bummer that Thompson is hanging up his pen due to Parkinson's. We knew it was coming eventually, but that doesn't make it any better.

Do yourself a favor and introduce yourself to Thompson's work if you haven't already. Cul de Sac might be the most tremendous comic strip since Calvin & Hobbes. Maybe also check out Team Cul de Sac, a collection of artwork to raise money for Parkinson's research.

I didn't hate Prometheus. David was a great character, for one thing. However, if I had gone in expecting a rubber monster popcorn muncher, I probably would have liked it more.

Still, some of the bits about religion didn't work for me. Like when that guy said his girlfriend could give up her cross because aliens created humans, did he think his girlfriend's belief in God depended on a literal reading of Genesis? I know they didn't have the benefit of seeing Swole Alien Christ Figure like the audience, but that's still a weird thing to assume about an archaeologist.

I've just uploaded one of the most nerdiest things I've ever drawn.  This was originally was supposed to be a sketch week as I'm pretty wiped from insomnia and work, but the 'sketch' kind of got out of hand.

It started with a conversation Matt and I had after Prometheus about how one of the original endings to Mass Effect was supposedly like, "Using mass effect fields destroys the universe, so reapers were made to stop kill/retard the growth of races that used it." After a while I was making jokes about hard light sunglasses and that Garrus's face looks like Lagann.

You can scrub through episode 27 and find each of the shots I used for reference, no problem. I'm so bad at dynamic angles... U_U
