Sometimes my co-teacher, Paul, and I disagree in the class. When this happens, we always settle our differences amicably. Then I stab him in the back.
Our rocky relationship is made easier by the desserts that our students bring us every week. These desserts are a requirement of the course, and you teach any kind of class at all, I'd recommend the same for your syllabus.
While munching desserts, I like to catch up on what films my students have been watching. When a student told me they'd just seen The Fly for the first time, it made me wonder what a reverse-Fly flick might look like...
Between the sword fights, decadent desserts, and insectoid mutants, the AM/PM class tends to keep things interesting.
Last week, I challenged the Twitterverse to board a four-panel sequence illustrating the theme, "Languid Jack-O-Lanterns." I strayed pretty far from the actual meaning of 'languid,' but the sequence was fun to board, none the less. Enjoy!
SFX: Creaky door
Sally: "Jack, are you okay? I noticed your most recent Jack-O-Lanterns are looking a little...off..."
Jack: "I haven't had much time for pumpkin carving, Sally. You see, I've discovered a new enthralling holiday..."
Jack: "FLAG DAY!"
If you'd like to participate in this weekend's four-panel challenge, the theme is "Tournament Squirrels."
I have a theory that Zynga is slowly enslaving the human race in a Blofeldian scheme of world domination and I refuse to take part. After all, "Farmville Invite" is an anagram for "Villain Vet Firm." I always wondered where Bond baddies took their pet kitties and sharks when they got sick.
So next time someone sends you a Farmville invite, feel free to drop this on their FB wall. It's a cute way to say, "You're one invite away from being unfriended."
It's first day of class for our Fall Semester at the Academy of Art University, which means printing up a fresh batch of inspiration packets (art compliments of the great Tom Gately) and a fresh horrifying paint job at the Academy.
The paint scheme is already having adverse effects on our students.
Can't wait to see what effect an entire semester in this crimson nightmare will have on my psyche. Stay tuned!
In Game of Thrones, ravens are messenger birds used to deliver bad news across great distances. It's looking like Marvin Lewis is going to have to send a raven back home to Cincinnati after the carrion birds pick the Bengals' bones clean tonight.
