No...

First there was FACTBOMB, now “subtle bomb”. Here it is, demonstrated by myself and my friend Meredith.

No, I wasn’t falling over at the end. Just sitting down. Feel free to send in your own examples…

Reduce, reuse, buycycle.

Buycycling is how I never have more than a $60 grocery bill. It’s also why I never have soda, chips, or really much food at all in my apartment.

Any of you guys buycyclists?

(Thanks to Marty and Ben for assists with the writing on this one.)

Facebook

I made a Facebook page for The System. Still figuring out what to put there, but if nothing else if you show a little love it’s greatly appreciated.

You can find the Facebook page here »

The System 627: Procrasturbating

This comic, co-written by my mom (Rossmom) in the comments of The System 626. You can see where I get “it” from.

And I’m just gonna leave this here…

The System 626: Exasturbation

I’m still deciding if I’m really going to make the next comic about “procrasturbation”. Also, thanks to Systemics Marty and Grace for help figuring out how to write this one. I can’t say it took the whole month but I was a little stuck.

Super Art Fight at the Black Cat on February 22nd!

In an ongoing effort to pretend to be a rock star, the Super Art Fight crew (including myself) is playing a show in Washington, DC at the legendary Black Cat rock club! I couldn’t be more excited. February 22nd, 9:30pm doors, $12 tickets, all ages. More details and info on preorders here.

I’m talking about comics and stuff in Baltimore!

I’m giving a talk called “How Comics Can Make Us Better Designers” to the web/design/development community in Baltimore as part of “Refresh Baltimore” on February 26th. It’ll be based upon but a revised and awesomer version of the talk I gave at Refresh last fall. It’s free. You should come! Here’s the EventBrite. Here’s the other details.

I’d love to see some Systemics in the crowd, and I’ll have time to answer all the questions people have on design and comics and stuff. Let me know if you can make it!

The System 568: Facebook Etiquette for Bad News

I saw this twice today, people “liking” posts where the post was bad news. Did they really like the bad news? No, they were merely showing support through a “like”. Sounds to me like we should change them from “like” to “approve” or “support”, because that’s what you’re really doing anyway. In real life, when someone says “I think we should get pizza”, you don’t say “like”. No, you agree. Do that. Just agree.

Have any funny (or sad) Facebook stories? Share them in the comments! I’m reading, and as always so is Rossmom.

The System 555: The Universal Laws of Cats

This was fact-checked thanks to my good friends Spike Jetpack Solomon, Steven Motocross Fluffybutt, Riley Day, and Delilah Whatshername. Yes, they’re all cats. And, while adorable, they don’t give a f*%k about you.

Clearly I now need to make a t-shirt with an adorable cat on it that says “I DON’T CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE.” I may just do that.

Speaking of cats, if you like cats on t-shirts, you may want to check out Professor Internet.

The System 553: Pasturbating

A followup to yesterday’s Antisocial Networking.

If you like this one, you’d probably like the other rules and terms we here at The System have defined over the years. Such as:

Thanks again to Marty F’n Day, who helped me come up with this and many other comics. His blog is Blast-O-Rama, and has great nerd news and interesting finds, as well as well-crafted movie reviews you should actually listen to.

And if you like these comics, you might like to see Marty and I collaborate on stage, as we do at every Super Art Fight show as co-hosts of the craziness that is THE GREATEST LIVE ART COMPETITION IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE. This weekend, we’ll be performing at Magfest on Saturday, 12:30pm in the National Harbor right outside of DC. More info over at SuperArtFight.com here »

The System 552: Antisocial Networking

Something about this post description was messing with the RSS feed, so I had to delete it. It wasn’t that clever anyway.
