Comic wallets

This is the newest batch of comic wallets I have been making.  These ones are of Apocalypse, Spider-Man, and the Hulk.  Not to brag or anything, but I am getting really good at making these things.

George Fontaine resorts to a life of crime.

Below is an artist's rendition of the may 21'st robbery of a local branch of the UAP.  One George Fontaine escaped apprehension by deputies early Saturday morning after stealing nearly $50,000 from the vaults of the local bank. Anyone with information should call their local Police department regarding the whereabouts of this man.  His most prominent features are his unusually squinted and beady eyes, his spindly handlebar moustache, his irrational gravitation toward metallica merchandise, and a general conformity with idyllic dodgy and most questionable tendencies.  He was last seen wearing a beret and small black eye covering while carrying a large canvas bag with an imprinted dollar sign.
The suspect is to be considered armed and dangerous.

Gilmore Girls?

Alright, I have to admit it.  I like the Gilmore Girls.  Their fast talking, pop referencing conversations have taken me unawares.  I let my guard down for maybe 3 episodes, and BAM! 8 months later I have just started the 7th and final season, and am sad we're almost done watching them.

Ubuntu rox

I have recently upgraded my desktop system to be more accommodating to my favorite operating system: Ubuntu.  The first thing I noticed is that there are a lot of free options for gaming than there ever have been before.  One website I have found invaluable and have enjoyed reading through is Ubuntu Gamer.  If you are interested in gaming in Ubuntu, this site is top notch.  They give lots of good suggestions, reviews, installation instructions, and even downloads are provided for some games.

Another must have for gaming in Ubuntu is Playonlinux. I have linked to the playonlinux download page, but if you have Ubuntu you can just as easily use the ubuntu software center to download and install the program.  It is basically an install manager for programs in wine (a windows compatibility program for non windows systems).  Playonlinux will automatically configure your installation to make it playable in Ubuntu.  There are a bunch of applications supported not to mention a large game list.  I have been able to install and play my favorite games including: cs:source, TF2, UT3, hl2 , hl2 deathmatch, all with decent framerates and minimal fuss.

Despite my recent geekery and excitement over gaming, my loving wife has been very supportive.  We have agreed that my gaming should remain under an hour a day.  Thank you for being understanding Jordyn.

If you are considering switching from windows, now is as good a time as ever.  Ubuntu can be easily downloaded and installed from their website:  Unless I am mistaken, it is also possible to order a disk to be shipped to your home as well.  The best part about this is that it is Free.  Truly a no cost OS.  Well, I guess my time on a soapbox is concluded for now.  I hope you all enjoyed reading this as much as I did writing it.  I have included a screenshot of me pwning some noobs as added incentive to run out and install ubuntu to see what the hype is all about.

To whom it may concern:

You may notice the last post possesses a drastically changed presentation than previous posts.  It was a little random indeed.  We here at Slaughter drop the S feel that it is nice to change gears a bit to spice things up.  Fiction is a way of doing just that.  It allows a certain ambiguity of the writer.  We here at Slaughter drop the S enjoy a bit of change and emphasize creative exercise with regards to all our contributors.  On a side note, this was the first instance that the writer has ever used narrative format for the speech of characters in a fictional work.  In this fact, we find that there was indeed creative stretching involved in the process of writing said post.  Language can be used to convey any number of thoughts, ideas, actions, and emotions.  In closing, the Slaughter, drop the S team would now like to wish you a wonderful day, but has decided that a winky-face more appropriately conveys the emotion desired. . .       ;)  We hope to continue serving our readers with enlightening and engaging posts for the betterment of our world.
Slaughter, drop the S

The Crickets

When I woke, the sound of chirping was all I could hear.  The cicadas and their harsh piercing croak, and the crickets with their softer more subtle trilling.  The room in which we occupied was dimly lit.  I rolled over to wake Asan, only to find that, we were sleeping on the hard wooden floor.  To my utter surprise, there was nothing else.  There was nothing of the plush pillows, the mattress of down fit for a king, the rich wall hangings, not even the tiger skin throw was in it's proper place where once was the foot of the bed.  Not even crumbs from our sugar cookies and milk we gorged ourselves with last night remained.  The only object that had not scampered was a solitary candle flickering in defiance of the barren wasteland that once had been a bedroom.
"Asan. . ."
"Asan, wake up!"
"Hur?  mmpphh."
"It's gone, everything is gone."
"Wake up!"
He did not wake.
