The Kea's Nest

The Kea is a well known, cheeky, mountain parrot from New Zealand. What better name to take for myself to comment on the funny drawings I find online?

Odds and Sods

How much attention do I pay to Evil Inc? It's hard to say, because I don't even know the name (or hideous evil identity?) of the boss who just sold off the business and retired. It's been some interesting and slightly melancholy strips covering the event, hasn't it? The final day, the impending realisation that life will change and the worry that one won't be able to adjust.

Today gives a sort of split idea how things will go. He's managed to turn his first breakfast with a woman I assume is his wife into the evil boss striding into his territory. It shows confidence and his wife's own strength in resisiting him turning retirement into his job.

Now, what's changing back at Evil Inc?

I love Samuel Jackson as much as the next man, but this Snakes on a Plane thing has gone insane.

I am enjoying the insane sci-fi adventure of Goats. I came in not long before the invention of Fineas.

At the moment there seems to be a lot of confusing double crossing going on. What with the whole in-entirely-other-dimensions things could get too confusing to be funny. But finding humour in one characters own discomfort with the turn of events makes us feel a little more sure of ourselves and our befuddlement.

Finally, an old friend of mine and I used to spend hours imagining crazy sci-fi worlds of our own. Among the ideas we borrowed from were Dyson Spheres, Ring Worlds, and those solar systems that swoop around entire rooms as seen in the Dark Crystal.

Bunny captures the difficulty of creating such worlds perfectly.

The former boss (owner) is named Evil Atom. That is his wife.

And Snakes On A Plane will hopefully die when the movie comes out.

Thanks for the heads-up.

SoaP is feeding upon itself, a sure sign of danger.
