TV Haka

I've been meaning to post this for quite some time now...
Photobucket

Haka flash mobs have been all the rage in New Zealand at the moment.

The Medvedev Diet

Photobucket
Photobucket
The Russian government recently classified beer as alcoholic, over concerns that beer is seen by many Russians as a healthier alternative to other beverages. No, really.

Apple Nazi

Got Hackergate fatigue, so now for something completely different...
Photobucket
Photobucket

'Apple Front' is based on a real (albeit satirical) organisation from Germany. More info can be found on Wikipedia (which also includes the translation of the German phrase in the cartoon).

Existential Crisis

A naff comic, but I have tried to reference a current event that has happened during the time that I've been away from this blog. Huzzah for laziness!

Sexy BoJo

Photobucket

As seen in latest edition of Ellipsis (along with a comic that I did). The article that accompanied this cartoon can be found here.

Today is also exactly two years since I posted my first comic on here. I've come a long way, haha.

Progressive Dave

Photobucket

I was gonna do a comic all about AV, but I think this video can explain AV better than I could through cartoons.

Islamochique

Photobucket
Yeah, I'm reposting the same picture I posted nearly a year ago, but it's relevant considering that today the ban in France comes into full effect (which some people have already flouted through bizarre ways).

I'm also really busy at the moment doing more work on my dissertation and looking after someone's cat. I have, however, got a comic all ready and prepared for Friday!

Gaga Lady Gaga

Photobucket

Louis Theroux's latest documentary on Sunday, in which he visited the church four years after he made his first film about them, not only brought light to the fact that people are begining to defect from the church, but brought attention to their bizarre quasi-adoption of Lady Gaga by using her songs to promote their agenda. An example of what I mean can be seen in their take on ‘Telephone’, which is actually a lot smuttier than the original. Whereas the Gaga simply sung about a telephone, Phelps and friends sing about how Lady Gaga is evil because of her music and dancing, with no hint of irony that they’re contradicting themselves by doing exactly the same thing. Unless, I don't know, they claim that Ezekiel 23:19-20 allows only them to bump and grind. Or something. What's even more bizarre is that their version can now be found on iTunes!

Although Lady Gaga has the right to sue the chastity belts off these people, perhaps her approach of simply ignoring the Westboro Baptists should be used more often when dealing with these guys. The Phelps essentially thrive on attention and publicity, (yes, writing this and drawing the cartoon doesn't really help) and will do anything to get more of it. Take last year’s incident of Burn a Koran Day, when the world and his wife spent weeks waiting to see if Pastor Terry Jones and his church would carry out their day-long festivity of burning copies of the Koran and a feast of buffalo wings. The Phelps family got all jealous and upset that no one was giving them any attention, especially when they claimed that they did the whole Koran burning thing years ago, and accussed the media of ignoring them on that occassion.

For those that haven’t seen Louis Theroux’s documentary yet, it’s on iPlayer until 10 April. For those not from the UK (or if it's no longer on iPlayer), it can be also be found on YouTube.

Trafalgar Square =/= Tahrir Square

Photobucket

This was inspired by an article I read the other day, about how some people involved in the anti-cuts protests tomorrow are hoping to turn Trafalgar Square into Tahrir Square.

As much as I support most of the protests that will be happening tomorrow (I really wish the anarchists would fuck off, tbh), could people please stop comparing them to the ongoing protests in the Middle East? Cuts to services and job loses that have happened in the past year isn't really the same as living under a brutal dictatorship for several decades.

Jediphobe

This explains better why I'm against the whole listing you religion as Jedi thing.

Also, this BBC article about how religion could become "extinct" in several countries is pretty interesting. One of the countries which is claimed to be religion-free in the future is...Ireland!

Iran's True Nuclear Ambitions

Iran really is going to build it's own flying saucers, which will apparently be the world's first.

And to any Persians that may (or may not) be reading this, Nowruz mobarak :)

Plain Smoking

This news is so last week, but I forgot to post this last Friday (I have a degree to finish!).

Photobucket

I thought I'd make these two look a bit older, to reflect the core demograph of Daily Mail readers. Although I would be technically classed as a Mail reader myself, despite the fact I read it for shits and giggles.

Charity Shop Antics

This will be in the next issue of Ellipsis, but as I'm really busy at the moment and have had this lying around on my computer since November, I'd thought I'd post this now. Minus the bit at the end, everything in this comic is based on things that have actually happened in the shop I volunteer at...

Strippergram

No comic today, as I've been super busy with my dissertation lately (which, for those of you that are interested, is about British-Iranian relations and the notion of 'Uncle Napoleonism').
Instead, I've made this diagram explaining the "empowerment" of stripping....

You Say Martyr, We Say Tyrant!

I think I can summarise yesterday's 72 minute-long speech from Gaddafi into one sentence:
Photobucket
Such an insane speech and brutal handling of the protests in Libya (which have left over 600 dead so far) deserves the Gaddafi Prize For Human Rights.

I'm not kidding, such an award actually exists. Gaddafi really is a fucking mentaloid.

Libya are also on the UN Human Rights Council as well. Just for anyone who like, y'know, believed in the UN or anything.

The 100th Post Spectacular!

Photobucket

I have, however, set up a Facebook page so that all you wonderful beautiful people can get updates of this blog!

I've also revived my old Twitter account, and will also post updates on there. Although I'm a complete incompetent using it, I've tried three times and STILL don't get it. So bear with me!

Blind Date

Three things about this strip: 1), Putin and Cilla Black are really hard to draw, 2) Cilla looks like a terrifying clown (the stuff from nightmares) in the final panel, although I guess she is like that in real life anyway, 3) I should have included 'Our Graham' in this. Oh well.

Rastamouse

Photobucket

I am really obssessed with Rastamouse at the moment, even though it's only been on for a week and is on Cbeebies. If you haven't checked it out yet, I recommend it. Possibly the greatest thing the BBC have ever produced!

The Mail haven't vented outrage on Rastamouse yet, but it's a shitstorm waiting to happen, seeing as the airing of the show combines the Mail's hatred towards multiculturalism, the BBC and its apparent 'left-wing agenda' and children. The people of netmums.com, however, are already up in arms about it and are convinced that a show about a crime-fighting Rastafari mouse is going to encourage kids across the land to smoke weed and speak in Jamaican patois.

Then again, I can see why they'd be concerned about children being influenced by the shows they watch. Afterall, my love of soup, habit of whistling and use of foul language can all be attributed to the Clangers.

Changing Change

You'd think that with all the protests in the Middle East demanding political and democratic reform, Obama would do well to remember what he quoted on the night of his election: "It's been a long time coming, but change has to come".
