I illustrated a tour poster this week for Owen Benjamin. I’ve designed hundreds of gig posters over the years, but this is my first for a comedian and this one may be my favorite. Checkout my creative process. Yes, below that’s a 9-hour (yes 9) livestream but you can see the process reduced down to 2 minutes above.
Join me as I rant about a ton of random stuff on Instagram. From vaccines and homeschool, to stomach flu and vintage 60’s music gear. Guitar pedal creator Joe Gagan even joins me for a half hour to talk fuzz pedals, wah pedals, and how homeless people are gross.
So after going full ‘stache this week for the first time ever, I’ve realized that I look like Ned Flanders. And I think I’m cool with it.
After further inspection, Ned Flanders is full-on logos. He was a great husband, a great father, always did what was right, loved God, didn’t lie, and wasn’t a total retard loser like Homer.
He made sure his boys ate healthy food and had a bed time routine. It’s the ultra-basic things like this that make children thrive and not turn out to be psychos, like Bart, when they grow up. Also in many episodes, he wasn’t afraid to kick some ass when he needed to.
I realize that Ned is intended to be a “Stepford Husband” type of character to be mocked for his “facade” of perfection and for how “judgmental” he is. But I think pursuing truth and goodness are a good thing. And also learning to recognize good and bad patterns and discern (or judge) between the difference are good things too. Encourage the good, discourage the bad.
This is foundation level stuff that we’ve been trained by school, movies, media and politicians to NOT register in our brain. They’ve destroyed the basic pattern recognition skills of most people. You can’t even say a black person is black anymore. You can’t even make generalities about the rule anymore because 10 people will immediately point out the exception to that rule. An exception to a rule does not destroy the rule itself. There are general rules that are generally true.
In any case, Ned Flanders is the man. I’m discovering he is the only truly good male role model I’ve ever had. I think Matt Groening inadvertently created an epic hero for the ages.
I think we could all learn a lot from Ned. When the world tells you to be a retard like Homer Simpson, give them the ultimate middle finger and be a Ned Flanders.
Why would you subject yourself to the words of a liar? Do you like hearing lies? Do you like sifting through the words constantly to see which ones are lies and which ones aren’t? Do you neeeeeed to be “well-informed” on lies? Are you retarded?
Think about it. If you went to grab a beer with a friend and hung out for an hour and realized that half of what they talked about were deception and lies, would you get together with them again? It’s a no for me dawg. If you can’t trust the words that are coming out of their mouth, then why listen to their words at all. I’m going to stop hanging out with that person.
So why do you continue reading New York Times articles and complaining about lies like the robot Ben Shapiro does? Why would you watch Fox or CNN, when both are filled with nonstop lies. Why do you continue to follow liars on your instagram, facebook and twitter feed? Why would you debate a liar, when the words that come out of their mouth can’t be trusted at face value. Why would you watch thousands of hours of YouTube videos of Joe Rogan and Jordan Peterson going on and on about why you need to try DMT while “cleaning your room”, while they lie to you about who they are paid by and who their liar friends are.
“But but but Ty, there is soooome good stuff in there… Jordan Peterson says soooome true things. And he told me to cLeAn mUh rOoM. Dat’s good right?”
Wrong. The most dangerous lies are the ones wrapped in a thin candy coating of truth. Ask Satan, Hitler, and Stalin about that. Plus if someone telling you to “clean your room” is life-changing, then you have much larger problems.
If someone is repeatedly lying to you and never owning up to any of these lies, then why would you continue to subject yourself to these lies? Why would you do that to yourself? Stop feeding yourself lies. At this point it’s your own damn fault. You are doing this to yourself. You are brainwashing yourself.
“There’s nothing so absurd that if you repeat it often enough, people will believe it.”
William James (1842-1910), The Father of Modern Psychology
Starting today, unfollow liars in your social feeds, unfollow the YouTube channels of liars, and unfollow media outlets owned and run by liars. Even if that puts you down to zero. Lies will kill you. Slowly but surely. Being “well-informed” is killing you in more ways than one. Quit being a pussy and making excuses. And quit buying into the despair of “it is what it is”. Despair is a sin.
Instead, start surrounding yourself with friends and family that pursue the truth at all costs. In real life and online. If you can’t find a community, make one. If you can’t find family that values truth, bag yourself a wife and make babies. Make the family that you want to see.
According to the police, Captain Nowak drove more than 950 miles from Houston to Orlando to meet with Captain Shipman… because she wanted to confront Captain Shipman after discovering that she too was involved with Commander Oefelein.
Captain Nowak, 43, was wearing a trench coat and wig when she was arrested early Monday morning. She told the police she had worn diapers on the journey so that she would not have to stop to use the restroom so she could arrive in time to meet Captain Shipman’s flight at the airport.
The police also found a knife, BB pistol, and latex gloves in her car, a police affidavit said.
So murderous space woman in a diaper drives 950 miles to kill slutty space woman, because she had sex with her spaceman. Got it.
Well, in 2019 the lady astronauts are at it again. When they are not attempting to murder other women astronauts in a jealous rage or blowing up the space shuttle Challenger, they are pulling shit like this. After falsely accusing her lesbian lover of physical abuse, the elite astronaut, Anne McClain hacked her ex-wife’s bank account – yep, you guessed it – from space. Lesbian lover bank hacking from space. Sounds like an old porno title.
Later that year, McClain filed court documents alleging that Worden assaulted her. Worden maintains that they never had a physical altercation. Those charges were dropped, and Worden filed for divorce, but she said that the ongoing battle in Texas didn’t stay on Earth.
“USAA Bank did give evidence to my attorneys that she did access my bank accounts,” Worden said.
According to Worden, in 2019, McClain broke into her bank accounts while she was on board the International Space Station. Worden gave KPRC the letter that her attorney sent to the NASA inspector general documenting the alleged breach.
“I was shocked and appalled at the audacity by her to think that she could get away with that, and I was very disheartened that I couldn’t keep anything private,” said Worden.
Worden’s parents also sent a letter to the NASA Office of the Inspector General citing the allegation in space.
So, the world’s first lesbian astronaut has committed the first space crime. Orrrrr… none of what we know about NASA and what they tell us is believable. It’s the many reports like these that make me think it’s highly probably that everyone we know at NASA, from the drunk Buzz Aldrin to astronaut diaper lady are all hired actors that inhale large amounts of coke on the weekends. They are not who they are portrait to be in the media.
These women should get back in the kitchen and engineer some sandwiches for their husbands before they do any more damage to NASA’s already dying reputation. Or maybe not, they should just keep doing their thing. In any case, women don’t belong in the military and they don’t belong in NASA.
Draw your own conclusions from this, but if you think we are supposed to believe that NASA officials are our military’s creme de la creme – the most elite chosen few from the US Airforce & US Navy – then your brain is broken. We didn’t go to the moon. There isn’t a space station. And the people we see floating around on camera in the “space station” are dangling from wires in a low production version of Peter Pan.
These tricks worked on the boomers for a half of a century. They believe literally everything they are told. But I’m grateful that these tactics don’t work as well on Millennials. And the Lord knows that no one in Gen Z is buying this crap.
