They're the tall ones underneath the giant one.

…for stopping by on their way back to Ohio!

That thing just walked into the frame at the last second,



…for throwing in this t-shirt when I bought the newest issue of n8tch!

Catching up by cranking out posts,


"Duck Season" by David McAninch.

The Haunting of Hill House quite awhile ago, and am now in the middle of David McAninch’s Duck Season.

Some classic serial killer literature is next,


Back when I was living in Columbus, Ohio my friends and I started a quote wall. Whenever a bit of brilliance (or otherwise) poured out of someone’s mouth, somebody would yell “Quote!” thus nominating it for Quote Board status. The quote then had to be seconded by someone (it almost always was), and then it would be written down to be forever immortalized on the Quote Board.

This is the modern-day equivalent of that classic piece of my past.


“That looks like healthy Kellyanne Conway.”

– KB, 1/6/19

Everyone looks like a healthier Kellyanne Conway,


…but for those who didn’t get a holiday card from the Shadys last December, it looked a little something like this:

Happy Holidays! Months late!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day,


…of the new theme is up! Here it is:

Now featuring me!

…for the newest issue of Chicago. One is about fighting team mascots, and the other is about spending a date night at Ikea.

The short mascot piece can be read here, but the Ikea article is only in print, so pick up your copy today.

I’m the go-to guy for all things Ikea and mascots,


Things have really slowed down here on The Blarg, mostly because I have a ton of projects brewing. Some of these projects will be announced soon (fingers crossed), and others may never see the light of day. That’s just how it goes in the industry I’m in, so we’ll see. I’m optimistically realistic.

Anyway, I’m going to do my best to jump back into delivering at least one new post a day (one post a day has always been my goal, even back when I started the site in 2008), but my apologies in advance if you end up not hearing from me again for a period of time.

I love updating The Blarg but, you know, life.

Stay tuned,


Old Poop!
