German Rock

Edgar Gossürt, lead singer of Stuttgarten, a German band
formed in 1974 came to his senses in early March after
a drug binge that he claims effectively wiped out three
decades of his life. "Jah, Ich kannt rekall muchen fromme
the previous drei decaden," he reports, "but ziss musique
vass all mein, and now is nein."

New Game for Kids

As a parent, you've grown tired of all the run-of-the-mill games you can play with your kids. You've been through the falling of London Bridge a thousand times, you've ducked all the gooses you can stand to duck, and ree has been riddled to death. That's why You Know Funny has put in some serious hours of R & D (research and development for those not privy to its demanding rigors) compiling and comparing lists of what children find enjoyable and then creating a game of all games out of it. We call the game MoonBlaster!

Find Things

Finding what you're looking for isn't always easy, but it doesn't have to be hard! You're probably used to constant struggles with finding things. You've probably been stuck in that cycle of losing things and then taking everything apart to find what you've lost! Or maybe you're approaching this from a much more metaphysical position. Maybe you are trying to find your way.  If you're ready to stop losing your time because you either are losing things and wasting loads of time searching for them, or you are sort of wasting your life and ready to find yourself, it's time that you read:

Ethical Concerns in Research


At Studtgarten College in Amherst, MA Dr. Beaumont

Thames, professor of abnormal psychology
was called into question for a study he undertook at
a local fast food restaurant. Over a period of roughly seven months,
Thames worked the night shift at the establishment only blocks from
the University where he is a talented and respected man of the
arts and sciences. During the day he was filling young minds with
knowledge, and by night he was filling stomachs with cheap,
crappy food.

How to create funny comics

So you want to get started as a world class illustrator and comic writer? Well, I'll tell you this, just by searching articles out like this one, you have already taken some of the biggest steps toward becoming an ace illustrator! You've proven that you have motivation and that you're ready to sit at the feet of the masters and learn from them. You've made a good move by making that first step, now you just have to remember to keep returning to that place of humility that allows you to listen to others and take advice. So many illustrators and writers, young and old alike, stop their growth because they are unable to learn from others! But that's not you! You are moldable and ready to learn. So here we go.

A dream of the future

For fifteen hours I worked in the deep recesses of the chicken farm. The chickens had to have their growth hormone shots and since my relief never came, I was stuck working on and on. My hands aching and my back in knots, I went home and fell into a deep sleep filled with terrible dreams of the future.

Abstract Expressionism

At no time in the history of western art has there been a movement so filled with utter vilification and rage. "When our patrons view the newest form of abstract expressionism, laconically black dot" says Samantha Heinrich curator of the Haute Museum, "they are at once terrified and driven mad." Since the opening of Henre Rice and Pieter Jurtull's black dot exhibit there have been numerous cases of severe sickness coming over those viewing the pieces. Spasms, vomiting, fainting, asthmatic coughs, nervous ticks, anxiety attacks. It's all a result of the momentous and final image of black dot.

Trying to become influential and well liked has become passe in the present day.

So the big question is, how can you become a figure that is despised even half as much as a North Korean dictator? Well, you've come to the right place to find out!

The Black Dot Movement

Black dot is the next great movement in art. it is, in the words
of it's progenitor Pieter Jurtull,
"a new wave of despair and understated squalor pouring life
back into an art scene that was dying by thriving."
