Comment on Listen to the Song If You Haven't Already of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

And it burned, burned, burned...
How is it going? Are you as excited as I am to wear patterned layers, leggings...and most importantly...HATS?!?!

Anyway, if you have yet to listen to Johnny Cash, and just want to listen to a max of 3 songs by him, I recommend:

1) "Hurt"
I'm pretty sure this is the last single he sang before his death. Even when old, arthritic, and legally blind, he still is able to croon tunes that sway one's soul. OH- and the music video gets to me every time D-':. My Dad was obsessed how it looks like the the ghost of his wife is haunting him in the vid.

2) "Man In Black"
When I first heard this for the first time, I was just like, "UNH! So much SOUL! Yeah, Johnny Cash!" The lyrics here are probably my favorite he's ever written.

3) "Jackson"
A sweet ditty duet with his wife.

Comics will be put up more sporadically for a while
The days are slowly cooling down! You know what that means, right? Driving in my car with its broken air conditioning (and I ain't payin' $700 for a new condenser when we will probably donate ol' Black Beauty next year) will soon become more tolerable! *0*

It also means that another school year will begin for me... my last full year of classes (I still have another full year afterwards of rotations- weh)! I'm still working on my commissioned part-time project, so comic-drawing will have to be pushed to the side.

But y'all can check the site periodically, folks! You may find a surprise comic update, yeehoo!

When I was in a grocery store with Steve, he was insensitively pointing at the plethora of magazine covers with Robin Williams face going, "Dead! ...Dead! ...DEAD! Isn't it funny how magazines want to capitalize on this kind of thing?" and then laughing to himself. >___>

I comforted him though when one of his idols, Roger Ebert died by telling him "At least in his illness, he still got to keep doing what he loved." :-^

If only we had a chimp to groom us
Hiking + humidity is a lot more fun if it's followed by ice cream!

Last week I went with the Zachs to a nearby state park (only about 30 minutes away). We actually saw what I think was a black rat snake: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/ensp/pdf/snake_broch07.pdf

I almost stepped on it until Tallzach pointed it out. Quoth Lil' Zach: "I actually saw it too, but I thought in my brain, naw, there are no snakes in NJ-that can't be one!"

100th post on this site, whee!
I finished inking and shading this comic to the Jeff Corwin Experience- which is now on Netflix- yaaay! I used to watch it when I was younger with my sister. It's fun to watch it now and point out where things have obviously been staged. I am also a big fan of how Jeff Corwin respects the animals he shows to viewers. He doesn't rile them up unnecessarily for TV drama.

EDIT: He does like to bring the animals close to the camera for viewers to get a better look though, if that means him picking them up when they are already scared out of their wits!

Also, Steve laughed pretty hard at the last panel before calling me a "little jerk".

So... I actually had time to do this comic!
Gee, I forgot how relaxing it can be drawing comics. My summer commissions/assignments/part-time job/"what-have-you" has kept me rather busy, so I can't promise that I'll be able to keep up a weekly comic, but I will try my best! ;^;

-------------------------------------------------------
In other news, on the 24th, I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled, so now my face resembles that of someone storing acorns in his/her cheeks for the winter. Luckily, only my bottom two teeth were impacted. If all four were, I would resemble a Lego minifig.

In the meantime, due to my restricted diet (for now), I have been forcing myself to whip up soups, chowders, soft things... I have also been digesting a lot of milkshakes.

Stick a banana, ~5 scoops of ice cream (I've been favoring cookies and cream), and 1/2 cup of crushed ice in a blender, and you're golden. GOLDEN.

Also, speaking of food, I checked out from my local library two graphic novels by one of my illustrator/comic artist idols, Lucy Knisley, who is definitely one of the most talented and creative artists out on the scene. I just read, "French Milk" and "Relish: My Life in the Kitchen". She draws AND she likes to cook/eat! How perfect for someone like me.

I've just been professionally contracted for the next few months!
Long story short, I had submitted an application for a part-time medical writer position for a company, and it turned out that they needed an illustrator for a certain project more!

I signed a fancy contract to illustrate about 100-150 drawings for a medical publication, which I will be working on for the next few months. Hooray! Unfortunately, however, I feel that if I continued to commit to weekly comics I may end up with a combination of both psychosis and carpal tunnel. Yeech.

I hope you guys check back in with me at this site when the leaves begin to fall!

Today was a good day
1) The weather was perfect
2) Rode the beat-up, spray-painted Black Beauty with the top down, hung out with my chica, Maira
3) Got up close and personal with a smattering of baby duckies
4) Got two pristine-condition Cranberries CD's for two bucks each
...

OH! And today, at church, the priest gave a really good homily addressing the horrible shooting in California. He mentioned that most people think it's corny and old-fashioned to say and admit that "God loves us" no matter what, but he also mentioned that even more old-fashioned way of thinking was that of fatalism and everything was in the hands of something supernatural.

However, we all know for a fact that we are in control of our own destinies. He noted that a child who is loved and cared for by his parents has the self-confidence to do great things, but one who is neglected often feels that no one at all cares about him at all (eg. the California shooter). HOWEVER, it is up to Christians to instill the knowledge in those neglected that no matter the situation, no matter how lonely you may feel, God is still with you, and he challenges (not threatens) us to realize that and build the confidence to utilize ones talents and resources to do good rather than bad.

Sorry for the late-ish update!
I am currently writing this from my Aunt and Uncle's house. I've been trying to get my baby cousin, Andre (about 2.5 years old) to say my name.

Me: "Andre! Say, 'Nicolle!' Ni-colle! Ni....colle!"
Andre: "Eeeaaaaoooaaaoooiiieeeooo....."

If only my name were "Da"...

------------------------------------------------------
And, yes- my Grandparents are visiting from Florida! They actually drove me up with them to visit my Baby Cousin Andre today.
------------------------------------------------------
Sun's out, fun's out!

Which means... I can listen to Tennis again (their music can be way too happy and peppy for the winter blues).

I have listened to their first two albums, but I didn't realize that they put out an EP late 2013 (this is what happens when I don't have a twitter/follow them on Facebook): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmlNH_1cXG8&index=1&list=PL4vwkP1KYS_diqPFC p3SYS0QyxTz_QTT9

I think "Mean Streets" is the best song out of the bunch there.
