Blogger Roll Call

Well, with the untimely demise of the Fanboy Rampage, I have been forced to forage across the frozen tundra of the internet for something to read (remember, as cool as my boss is, I still can’t look at porn at work (I started to type pr0n for some reason, even though I never use that little nugget of leet speak and it really kind of pisses me off, I mean come on kids, who the hell do you think you’re fooling?)) I have stumbled across the following gems that some of you might get a kick out of, therefore I am updating the ole blogroll and giving you a brief overview of the new specimens drug from the bowels of the internet.

Beaucoup Kevin

I think I found Kevin’s blog via comments posted on the aforementioned FBR. While his blog is primarily fan boy oriented, he posts these photocomicstrips which are consistently funny and sometimes downright hilarious. For example take the first appearance of Otter-Prime which you can view here. Comedy gold. Okay, I admit that I am a strange and sad little man, however Otter-Prime? It’s an otter. With a stick! How can you go wrong? See, just check out his second appearance. Okay, fine, but you’re laughing on the inside. Beaucoup Kevin manages to slip some comic news and fanboy snark in between the photocomicstrips and he was the source of this year’s Halloween costume (read t-shirt I wore while surfing the internet the evening of the 31st..)

Chris’s Invincible Super-Blog

I love the smell of fanboy angst in the morning! It smells like victory! Chris Sims is another comics fanboy who shares his deep moments of introspection and soul searching with us sandwiched between his analysis of the weekly take of comics. I have not been reading the ISB for long, so I was relieved to find out that Chris has kindly provided a visitor’s guide to get the newbies acquainted with his little corner of the world (this is something I am totally thinking of ripping off here in the near future, maybe for the first anniversary of the Opiate.) After you take a look at that, the Reasons I Might Be Gay and Personal Space entries are some of his more entertaining moments of fanboy self-loathing. Chris also engages in the occasional bit of rasterbation (playing with Photoshop) although not to the extent that BCK does.

Bad News Hughes

RF introduced me to this blog, and for that I owe him many props. Patrick Hughes is, without a doubt, one of the funniest men on the internet. Seriously. If you can get past his need to share his medical issues with his readers, he has some side-splittingly funny posts. Personal favorites include My Butterfly-Knife Romance in which he shares a story of adolescent heartbreak and wedding picture based self-gratification, and Keep Partying which involves a gentleman by the name of Frog, audio equipment, a bomb threat, and the best excuse ever. Go and read them. Right now. Seriously.
