Midnight Bacon

Good morning, El Moochadores. Or “Good Evening.” It’s almost two in the morning and I can’t sleep. I’m tired, but a fantastic mix of depression and anxiety is keeping me up. “So, why not bitch about it on the internet”, I’ll ask no one. Actually, I don’t even want to bitch about it. I kind of feel that people only bitch about stuff when they don’t want to blame themselves. But, I don’t really get to do that, because I gotta own this shitty life of mine. It is my fault. At 42, it’s always your fault. Nah. Mostly I just want to work off some energy so that I can get some sleep. Maybe even have one of those near porn dreams where I’m about to bang a twenty-year-old Phoebe Cates clone, but then I gotta finish a college math course I never attended, only that’s interrupted when my mom tries to kill me for not doing the dishes. Oh, and for some reason this is all up in Utah, but I never wanted to go back to Utah. Fuck Utah.

WoW Battle for Azeroth Videos

Cinematics and Warbringer Videos

Good morning, El Moochadores! Well, morning for me. I love playing World of Warcraft. Which, is something that is tough to owe up to, especially with some of my friends, but fuck ’em. I pay my taxes, I don’t commit crimes, and I go to work every day. I get to enjoy Warcraft, goddammit. Also, it’s fucking cool!

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time, or money, to play WoW as I would like. So, I have to enjoy WoW in a limited, often from the sidelines, sort of way. Which sucks, because I think this new expansion (Battle for Azeroth) looks really cool, and I really want to play it! And I might!

Well, I’ll probably work a bunch of overtime, and spend my free time drawing cartoon mice and cows, but I’ll really want to play… dammit! Since I can’t get involved (right now) I can at least geek out over some of the new cinematics and animatic videos being released prior to the new expansion. So join me in my frustration and check out some cool WoW lore. Below, I posted the Battle for Azeroth trailer, Old Soldier, and a couple of the Warbringer animatics. Not all the videos released, but enough to help feed the addiction. I hope.

For the Horde.

Atomic Tails #28

I Finally Finished Another One!

Hello, El Moochadores. It’s been awhile since I posted a comic, but last night I finally finished another Atomic Tails. This time featuring Chud and Buttery. I’ve already begun working on the next strip, so hopefully that one won’t take me the better part of 3 months to finish. Anyways, check out the comic below, but also go check out past comics at the Atomic Tails Archive. This is a big learning project, so constructive criticism is welcome. Basically, I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m not going to stop, so let’s all make this work some how. Also, don’t forget to support Atomic Tails by following me on Instagram and Facebook. Maybe twitter too. We’ll see.

Enjoy!

How To Learn Anything Faster

5 Tips to Increase your Learning Speed

Okay, El Moochadores, it’s time to start out our day (well my day) with a little sefl-improvement. Check out the above video from the Youtube where Practical Psychology presents a video from Project Better Self that provides five useful tips for improving your ability to learn new things. I thought it was cool that one of his examples for stuff we might want to learn is drawing, since that is exactly what I’m studying, but here are the five steps to learn faster in a nutshell… or blockquote…:

1. Deconstruct the skill and use the Pareto Principle. The 80/20 rule; That is, focus on the one or two things of which you want to learn and just focus on those things.
2. Have a laser like focus and use the Pomodoro technique. Shut down all external distractions and fully focus on a task for a short period of time. Usually 20 to 25 minutes, making sure to include a short break of 1 to 5 minutes.
3. Learn by Doing.
4. Be Persistent. Fight the dip!
5. Get enough sleep.

This next week, I’m going to try this method. I’m usually not to good at sticking to a routine, but maybe this can help change that. Also, step 5 is problem for me. I have a very tough time falling asleep at night and staying asleep. Apparently, I also snore. Anyways, I hope this video helps with your own study routines and projects.

Cheers!

Comic Con 2018 -Trailers!

An Atomic Moo (not) Movie Review

Yesterday I was in the process of setting up a really big Atomic Moo post about all the film, and television, trailers that premiered at the last SDCC 2018. However; as I was gathering links, and embed codes, I came across Red Letter Media’s Half in the Bag episode: 150, where they reviewed many of the same trailers, but with just as much (or more!) fake disinterest, and cynicism, that I myself was about to write. So, instead of posting a giant page full of Youtube videos, I’ve decided to post Half in the Bag 150 , which (for the most part) shares my same opinions towards these films, and few trailers they missed.

Well, there are some differences. These fellows seem more or less indifferent to Disney Star Wars, whereas I hate (loathe) every hack film produced by the Disney Wars (Disney ruined Star Wars). Also, I’m all in for a Godzilla v. King Kong film. Yeah, I hate going to theaters these days, and if I end up watching any of this stuff – it’ll be from the comfort of my own home, but a Godzilla/King Kong fight may (MAY) just get me back into a movie theater. Oh, and I am very much rooting for the Shazam film. I know it probably won’t be good, but I want to be just awesome.

So what follows here is Half in the Bag: Episode 150, Trailers for Venture Bros. Season 7, Dr. Who Season 11, and The Oriville Season 2.

Enjoy and disney ruined Star Wars.

Skies of Fire: Book I

Kickstarter for a Dieselpunk Airship Story of Loyalty and Revenge!

Hello, El Moochadores! Right now there is a Kickstarter for Skies of Fire: Book 1 and since this is a fantastic diesel punk indie comic I’ve posted about in the past, I thought I would give there first graphic novel a quick shout out here on the Moo to see if we can’t get ’em a bit more support. This new hardback, cloth bound volume will contain the 1st four issues of the series created by Vincenzo Ferriero and Ray Chou, with art by Pablo Peppino and Bryan Valenza. Here’s the synopsis:

Skies of Fire takes place in the Aquilan Empire, a kingdom where airship travel has become the dominant means of transportation, commerce, and war. In the center of the Empire lies a monstrous, never-ending storm called The Expanse.

In Issue One, the raider Delmonte orchestrates a surprise attack on the key trade outpost, Port Prince. His actions prompt Royal Guard Captain Helen Pierce to volunteer for an expedition to bring him to justice.

As of this post the Kickstarter is a total success, and Skies of Fire: Book 1 has a wopping $32,000.00 in funding, over a $10,000.00 goal! Way to kickass, indie comics! However; there are still 19 days left to contribute and get in on some cool rewards special to the KS campaign! So, go donate! Unfortunately, I don’t have any sample pages to post, so check out the KS promo video below, along with a few sample pieces of art from the book. Check ’em out and go help out a really cool book about diesel fueled fighting airships!

Cheers!

Atomic Moo’s Con Gets!

Some of the Cool Stuff We Grabbed at SDCC 2018!

Every year that Chud and I can go to San Diego Comic Con we come back with some pretty cool stuff. In years past we’ve picked up some pretty cool Con-Exclusive items, and interesting collectibles, but I’ve never mentioned this stuff on Atomic Moo before. So, today I wanted to take a little time to post about the stuff we accumulated in four days at Comic Con. Unfortunately, this year we did not have a chance to get any exclusive items. We had a bad combination of being both broke and unable to get in any lines. Which is so important to collecting at a convention this big. Know your lines, know where to get tickets for those lines, and be willing to wait a long time in those lines. I don’t have that sort of patients anymore, so no exclusives for me. However; that doesn’t mean I didn’t get some cool stuff and good deals. Let’s take a look…

Art Books From The Warhead Booth

Although I think Comic Cons small press, and artist alley, areas need to be expanded; what is there is a really good collection of off the wall art, indie comics, and past Moocast guest like Warhead author Katrina E. Kunstmann! We came across Kat’s booth and picked up a couple of art books, which (I could be wrong) I think she was selling two for $5.00. Groovy weird.

Atomic Moo Comic Con Review!

San Diego Comic Con International 2018 Photos and a Moo-Review!!!

Last Sunday, San Diego Comic Con International wrapped up its 48th year, and once again Chud and I were there for all four days for a spectacular show of art, comics, animation, film, books, music, and television shows! Oh, and alcohol. I’m really not a drinker, and though it’s been a week; I still feel wrecked. This con marked our 23rd year as attendees, and although the event had it’s highlights, I walked away feeling incredibly bummed out, but we’ll get to that later. First, the good stuff!

Much like years past SDCC had star filled panels, outside events, and a massive exhibit hall full of every piece of geek related media you could want. As four day attendees we tried to experience as much of it as possible… which actually wasn’t much. Unfortunately we got to see none of the panels in the mane show rooms. The lines for such events were huge, and mostly outside. However, Chud did get a chance to meet the cast of Fear the Walking Dead. He loves the zombie stuff. So, since we couldn’t get into the bigger, fan based, stuff, we sat in on several panels (usually held in rooms 2 or 4) that discussed more creative topics like introduction to television writing, or Indie creators. Panels such as these have way more value for us, and although I would like to sit in the main ballroom and geek out over the next big comic movie, I actually feel better and more inspired for attending the creative work panels. Also, they’re great place to take a break, and get informed at the same time.

Other good stuff this year; We got a ton of SWAG! In Moo-Post of past I’ve often referred to my “Con Pile”. A stack of cards, promo material, and comics collected at conventions that I use to find geek creative posts. I walked away from SDCC with a giant bag of this stuff. Lot’s of new stuff to post about. Then there is the stuff we bought. Comic Con is a great place to source discounted graphic novels, new and old comics, independent comics, and gear. I spent well over $100 dollars at the Famous Monsters booth. I’ll probably do a separate post about all the stuff we came back with, but now I’m happily broke.

Metalshark Bro!

A New Comic Book About Mutant Sharks, Demons, and Heavy Metal. Keen.

Okay, El Moochadores, I’ve got another Kickstarter project for a comic book that looks bad ass. Metalshark Bro is a “classic shark meets demon, demon transforms shark into a sharkman, shark vows vengeance on demon story.” Fuck’n cool. C’mon, we’re Atomic Moo. We dig any story that mixes animals, comics, and maybe some heavy metal. Here’s a proper synopsis:

It’s about a normal shark who is cursed by a demon to walk on land as a man. The shark doesn’t dig this at all, he wants his fins and his ocean back. The demon makes a deal with the shark. If the shark collects rogue souls, the demon will reverse the curse. Of course the demon is a big fat liar head and refuses to fulfill his promise to the shark.

The shark vows revenge and becomes Metalshark Bro! Then things get weird…weirder. Metalshark Bro! has to face all kinds of strange, fantastical monsters on his road to vengeance.

Written by Bob Frantz and Kevin Cuffe, with art by Walter Ostile (Shiver Bureau) the finished book (according to the KS page) will be over 100 color pages of sex, violence, cursing, and sex. Please back this project.

Below I posted the KS promo video along with a smattering of sample art from the comic. Check it out. As of this post there are 22 days left to help contribute, and we highly recommend that you do.

Cheers!

The Get-Go’s Action Hour

A Kickstarter for a New Album by Paul Melancon

Hello again, El Moochadores! I actually tried writing this post a few days ago, but life stuff got in the way. Anyways, not only has it been a long time since I did a Moo-post, but it has been an especially long time that I’ve posted anything related to geeky music. Then I got an e-mail from Paul Melancon along with a link to a Youtube video to one of his songs, and I thought “cool, I can get behind this.”

The goal is to fundThe Get-Go’s Action Hour, and when (already!) funded the album will feature “power-pop album about choosing creation over cynicism, made by Paul Melancon and an animated band”. According to the KS page the album will feature original songs and cover art by Meloncon and… it’s already funded! However you can still pitch in and help the project hit all of its stretch goals. Check out the KS promo video below along with the single posted on the youtube.

Cheers!
