Pocket Boners

Keeping in the theme of last weeks comic panel, this months book cover is The Pocket Book of Boners.  Illustrated by Dr Seuss, which is hardly surprising considering he wrote a book entitled There's a Wocket in my Pocket.

Yes it is a Boner in my pocket and no I'm not happy to see you.

In Midnight Oils song Short Memory Peter Garrett is absoloutely singing "Short memory Mustafa, short memory".

Jokers Boner

Funny how language use changes over time.  His henchmen seem shocked at the prospect.

Invaded Space

Back in 1978 this amazing machiene appeared at the shopping centre downthe road.  It was one of the first video games and back then was the most wonderous pocket money waster around.  Created by Tomohiro Nishikado, the game caused a temporary shortage of 100-yen coins in Japan.

At the time microcomputers in Japan were not powerful enough to perform the complex tasks need so, Nishikado designed his own custom hardware and development tools to create the arcade board circuitry. Despite this, Nishikado was still unable to program the game as he wanted with colour graphics and faster movement.  While programming the game, Nishikado discovered that the processor was able to render the alien graphics faster the fewer were on screen.  Rather than change the programming to compensate for the speed increase, he decided to keep it as a challenging gameplay feature.

Tomohiro Nishikado drew his inspiration from several sources Star Wars, War of the Worlds, a Japanese mechanical board game and a dream about school children who are waiting for Santa Claus and are attacked by invading aliens.  Originally titled Space Monsters, inspired by a popular song in Japan at the time, but was changed to Space Invaders by Nishikado's superiors prior to release.

Back then in 1978, the game got its colour through plastic film stuck to the screen which would often be peeled off by vandalous youths leaving a monochrome game experience.

Here's a true to the original emulation.  Give it a play!

From The Urban Dictionary

When you buy a bag of chips thinking that it will be full of chips but when you open the bag it's barely full.

"I bought a bag of chips out of the vending machine and there was only 5 chips in the bag, what a Chiptease!"

Nimoy Touching

Apparently the biggest reason Spock suppressed his emotions was to stop his compulsion of inappropriate touching.

 Leonard Nimoy: actor, director, writer, singer, illustrator, hobbit toucher.

"I am your cult leader.  You will wear the pointy ears and dance about for me in delightfully coloured jumpers".

Good Morning

Had most of the day to myself today.  Spent the morning smashing myself on my wooden dummy for around an hour until I was sore and got a swollen wrist.  Then used some herbal relief cream and sat on the massage chair watching Sci-fi channel with a coffee and half a glass of wine for the rest of the morning.

What a great day.  but I'm still a bit sore.

Lucky Candy

Went to the Chinese supermarket a few days ago and picked up some Lucky Candy.

One of my favourites.  Yum.

The company logo is an iconised chef, but if you turn it upside down it could be mistaken for a cartoon of a disappointed penis.

Here's a link to the company website:
