Craig McCracken’s new serialized action/comedy show currently in production as a pilot has provided a hint in the show’s style.

While less cartoony than Wander Over Yonder’s Looney Tunes inspirations and flat lines, it’ll still retain Craig’s drawing style, but with three artists as inspiration:

Charles M. Schulz (Peanuts/Charlie Brown/Snoopy)
Hank Ketcham (Dennis the Menace)
Herge (The Adventures of TinTin)

Also, he noted that he has no plans to do any crossovers, and further noted that they’re not his thing as he prefers making shows that are separate universes that don’t need to cross each other.

Landlord is jealous of my income, raises my rent $500. I screw him years later for $20k.

All names have been changed. Long story:

In the late ‘90s wife and I were just married, just getting started, and we decided to DINK (“double income, no kids”) it for a few years to save up for a down payment on a house.

The dotcom bubble was still rising and I was a newly minted software developer. I had an entry-level job for a while and then got recruited to a new city and a new job that paid 3x what I was making before. It was an offer too good to pass up. I ran the numbers and it was a no-brainer: by living frugally and saving my entire salary, living off just her income, we would easily have enough in a year to put 20% down payment on a new house.

We rented an apartment in the new city that was listed for $950/mo. The landlord was a real estate agent who owned a two-bedroom condo as an investment property. Let’s call him “Hank Wazowski”. Hank was a thin, gray, no-nonsense guy. He was pleasant enough, but perfunctory, dry, and had no sense of humor. He made a point of explaining that under no circumstances was he responsible for maintaining the garbage disposal and that it was NOT included in the rental agreement and he would not be responsible for fixing it were it to break. Um, ok.

“I can’t promise you a life without pain and loss because pain is a part of life. It’s what makes us who we are. It is what makes you a hero. You fight every day to keep people from struggling like you have. I know you can remember, please… If you try, please… Please try, Kara. Because Earth needs Supergirl. Remember that life. With James and Winn and Hank. Your friends need you. And I need my sister!”

  • Me: Nicholas Hoult is so precious and cute. My sweet little nervous angel.
  • Nicholas Hoult: *is in a movie entirely about drugs, alcohol, and murder*
  • Me: So innocent. So pure.

Nothing better than being in an empty fandom and dragging other people into it like it’s some sort of soul-eating contagious disease
