Today something beautiful happened

August 28, 2013

'tis glorious!

’tis glorious! [click to make it bigger, assholes!]

The word “hero” is overused these days. The media throws around “hero” to describe some kid who donates her bone marrow to an AIDS baby or some guy who rescues three girls from a Cleveland-ghetto sex dungeon or some dude who butt-swallows a mummy horse cock so he can power up to cast Odin-curses on his black neighbors.

Recovering Retard, artist-extraordinaire who today created the above image, is not a hero. I would not offend Recovering Retard with such meager company…


Please take note of the technical and aesthetic mastery of this piece. Recovering Retard could have gone broad, farcical and over the top. Instead his hand is restrained and true to life — “Just the facts, ma’am.” He could have used a lurid splash of vulgar yellow for James’ undies or even piss dribbling down his leg, but no hyperbole here — the subtle pee-pee shading brings home the quiet malevolence of the subject’s disgraceful hygiene. Zak fingers himself offhandedly, his attention directed elsewhere, for what could possibly contain his surpassing intellect? — he’s too cool for any school, even Cooper Union. Poor, sad JaMal — even his amazing technicolor Hawaiian shirt and all that cash can’t turn that frown upside down as he meditates on the ill-wisdom of allowing women to vote.

Whose bung did Gary plumb the brown, kernel-yielding depths of? Recovering Retard leaves us guessing, or suggests it is our own cornhole he has violated rendering each of us viewers a victim. Bravo.

Recovering Retard, collect 120,000XP and go straight to Level 8 Fighting-Man. I further award you the broadsword Scather, a potion of extra-healing, a ring of protection +1, 2000pp and elevate you to a Knight of the Hart (Veluna & Furyondy). You can show your silver star badge at any Korean massage parlor to receive 25% off a happy ending (please tip on full amount).

This picture gives me hope. I plugged it into the banner and WordPress is super gay because I’d have to shrink it to thumbnail size to make it fit their size limits, so fuck that I’ll just lead off just about every post with that image to let everyone know shit just got real up in this motherfucker.

Today I felt just a little tiny bit of happiness. Thank you Recovering Retard.

    With current horrors and strife going down in the world (Kim-ye’s procreating; Miley’s tongue-hanging twerk, Lindsey being out of the news for two weeks, etc) It’s nice to have a place to come to and let an unashamed tear of hope for humanity drip down my unbearded, unjowlely face. Really, this is what hating the laughable heroes of the blOwSR is all about.

    God bless you, Recovering Retard (really, old school Mad Magazine level work). God bless US, every one…

    All while John Adams and the Responsibility Dodging Hobbit just keeps lying and lying. Now it’s a stress-induced heart issue that has caused the latest delay. Woe is him.

    Say what you want about James R, but at least he had the ability to ship out 700 boxes – I’ll give him that. John Adams had around 500 backers for his project – several of whom he scammed for more money for faster shipping – and still the only person who has recieved anything from this more-than-a-year-late KS, is our ol’ friend Tenkar.

    I also like that Zak seems to be the only one of the lords of game hucksterism who is not very distressed at being on the business end of a deep rectal exam. Not saying he’s gay (I mean, really, look at that manly, citizen of Megacity hairdoo), but he might be wondering how to get a book out of it, like the “When we did porn” opus he shat out years ago and distributed the 35 copies to his friends and family. Maybe he can Kickstart “When Gygax’s Ghost Fingered me bum” to his fervent, fapping fans.

    Here’s a little Blooeymage Blast From The Past.

    We all know the story of how Blooeymage and his mentally challenged dog walking lady friend headed out to GaryCon earlier this year only to be stranded 70 miles away at a Motel 6 when nobody would offer to drive 140 miles out of their way round trip to pick them up. Granted, he was asking a hell of a lot from the blOwSR crowd who couldn’t be bothered to bring a guy some plastic silverware from the next room, but I digress.

    Well, that epic tale has nothing on this. I give you Blooeymage’s World Gaming Convention Tour 2006:

    It is a case study in borderline retarded manchildren. Sleeping in his truck with $3 to his name. No one offering him hotel floor space. Days on end without a shower or any other form of hygiene. Blaming his ex-wife for not renewing his driver license after getting busted sleeping in his truck in a church parking lot with a suspended license by the Arkansas Po Po. Some nice Friday reading to get you through to the three day weekend.

    Good times!

I regret wasting all that fucking money on medical school when I could have bought a mint copy of every fucking roleplaying game product ever made instead, or invested it all in a roleplaying con for northern Arizona. Or backed Dwimmermount. My life has been empty up until now, but that’s all about to change!

    Someone called out Joe Blochhead’s cult as racist. Having failed to call down the wrath of Odin on the infidel liberals, he ran away instead.

    Methinks it is time for a new frozen horse penis charm, verily.

      It’s weird when bloggers feel the need to “tender a resignation” like blogging is a real thing. It’s not a job, cupcake, no one will notice when you’re gone.

      This part did stick out: “First was the reaction when my friend and Lord, Dan Halloran, a prominent Republican and Theodish Lord…”

      His ‘organization’ also get called out here:

      “The AFA was founded in the mid-1990s by Stephen McNallen out of concern that other Asatru organizations had lost focus on promoting the Asatru faith as inherently tied to the white race. At least one of AFA’s leaders has ties to white supremacist organizations, claiming former standing as a state-level organizer for the SS Action Group and links to a violent neo-Nazi skinhead gang. “’I’m a white racist and proud of it,” he told a reporter while posing in a Nazi uniform in 1992. ‘ (1)”. “

      • August 30, 2013 6:57 pm

        I’m gonna have to side with GRahowa Grognard on this one — membership in a Nazi-affiliated white supremacist organization does not mean someone is racist. It just means they have a big tent.

      “Always, I tried to do so with an eye not towards trying to convert anyone else to my political or religious views, but merely to try to show that the Pagan and Heathen tents are, or should be, large enough to accommodate people of all ends of the spectrum; liberal, conservative, libertarian, and more.”

      Unless you are a liberal and/or more. In which case, he wishes you would just go away and stop fucking up his horse penis buzz.

    Thanks Arneson’s for digging up that Blooeymage gold. I’m fairly certain now that Andy Kaufman did not die, and has been pulling off his largest, most intricate prank in one of the world’s most niche, under the radar hobbies.

    As Oh Captain My Captain mentions in his mind-bending thread, there is surely a book in his adventures of the last decade or so. Maybe a nice indy film. There was an indy “superhero” movie a couple of years ago that it would be a lot like, starring the chick from Juno and the big forhead dude from The Office. It was a sort of sad/funny story about a dork with dangerous delusions of grandeur. The guy even got to pork Juno, less than half his age, as a nice bit of luck in the way our man Blooey has the occasional bit of luck (like not getting the shit kicked out of him by drunk hillbillies who find him snoring in the parking lot of Our Lady of Redneck Cracker Mercy church at 3am).

    But truly, 2006 was the age of glory for BM. Pimpin’ all over the country popping and locking the clutch on his shitbox toyota. He maybe should have charged a few bucks for those autographs though. No money, no honey.

    Special note to BM: You can get a pretty decent Mexican Shower out of a park drinking fountain. They sometimes have one low to the ground for the kiddies that makes it easy to dash a little aqua fresca on yer nads. Maybe even dip them in a bit if you clog the drain with gum.

    I’m thinking of authoring a little one act that is totally not lifted from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest where Arneson’s Spectre takes on the nurse Ratched role and is giving group therapy to Jamal, Raggy the Last, Blooey, et all.

    Between the Uber-Liberal PC Police over at Big Purple Dildo going all Tipper Gore, and the Neo(Nazi)Pagan Conservatives like Joe Blockhead shoving frozen horse dongs up their ass to cast Norse spells, and in between you have the Libertarians (read: Republicans without any money) with Asperger’s Syndrome at the RPGShite under RPGPundouche’s banner, I think Bill Maher may have been right:

      It is idiotic, or par for the course, to post it here where *we* have to look at it and the portraits can easily be viewed as three stalwart gamers conceived in the image of ydis regulars like Arneson’s Speculum.

      The measure of the effectiveness of insult is in the reaction, of which there is none.

      The artist has this to say about himself, “I can draw, bitch,” and if excited self-appraisal was the mark of a man we should have to agree that he is an important person now – among the life-forms which persist in decomposing excrement here at ydis like Arneson’s Speculum.

    Getting back to **30 Rock**, I am up to date now. I suspect the episode in which I was treated to several lingering close encounters with Tina fey’s ass was an imposterior, that is to say an ass double was used. For evidence, when swiveling in stately harlotry from the writers’ room I did not notice Ms fey’s usual bow legged bounce.

    Arneson’s Spectre, have you ever though about killing yourself? I don’t mean in a ‘Oh, Ive had a bad day, nobody likes me’ kind of way which I imagine is your daily bread. I mean in all seriousness, have you considered vanquishing the pain of your existence, your own private anguish, the deep horror arising from the knowledge that whenever people get to know you intimately life disgusts them in nauseous blasts.

    You claim you have medical knowledge, as if that was important, so why not put it to good use in a universal sense, in a way to allow the cosmos to breathe easier, and end your life.

    Think. On the other side you could meet Dante and ask him, ‘Where do I fit in? I am lost.’ Perhaps Dante would spit in your eye and declaim ‘Disgusting anomaly! Unperson!’, but at least you would know for sure, finally knowing why noone you have ever met likes you.

    There was a shit monster in that terrible Jay and Silent Bob movie. Yet another thing in that film that was poorly executed (Kevin Smith is the king of poor execution), but I think it is the inspiration for Raggi’s “edgy” poop critters.

    There is no way to do up a shit monster in any media that doesn’t come off stupid and forced. A bad joke. It’s why this kind of thing only showed up in the games run by Beavis and Butthead types when we were kids. Ragg’s has found himself in some kind of weird sweet spot where The Unblown faithful will see gross things done by immature, pre-adult DM’s as outside the box when done by this particular adult DM.

    I got the “you should commit suicide” rant from Kunt some time earlier this year. Probably around the holidays when he is at his lowest. It’s his go-to call when he is hilariously losing an insult contest and not coming off as the comic/philospher genius he thinks he is (like his heroes Larry David and Peter Falk). And one can understand why he is so consumed with talk of ending it all. His existance is futile and there is no way you could find happiness in his routine. Talk smack on the Unblown Forums, get banned. Come to YDIS with the same M.O. and finds he is totally overwhelmed and confused when those he thinks are dolts end up being smarter and funnier than him by a mile. He’ll vanish for a bit, pop up with fake names for a bit. Get called on it, pop right back in as “Kent,” call everybody cunts, and start praising some stupid shows that most of us have long since put in our past to focus on truly great TV like Breaking Bad.

Admission for those who can brandish the high-culture membership card and demonstrate themselves worthy of the secret mysteries by grinding thrice upon the door-jamb, each time with greater lewdness and more suggestive tweakings?

      Perhaps there’s a hint for Kent in here.

    I like how in the pic with the girl getting the axe facial treatment has some nice sensible body types. The axe lady looks like Rosie O’Donnel, and the elf looks like Anna Nicole Smith during her heavier phase. Note to Raggi: tell your artists to use Satine Pheonix’s body type as a model from 5 years ago the way Zak does, not how she looks now.

    This is some truly delusional shit right here:

    “Non-Asatruar actually knowing what a hammer means, and knowing that the person wearing it can be trusted to keep his word, and values family, and even though he may practice a different religion, it’s not something incomprehensible and weird.”

    I’m sorry, Anton, but your far right wing, Christian friends are never going to stop wanting to burn you at the stake.

    Besides that, how does this, in any way, resemble the actual Norse view of the world? And who wants to ride a frozen horse cock all the time?

      Meh. Asatruans (Asatrus, Ninnyhammers?) aren’t any more delusional than the two old ladies from the Jehovah’s Witnesses who came calling at my door yesterday morning. I politely said, “I’m not interested,” and gently but firmly closed the door in the face of the one standing about 1 inch from where it would have broken her nose (they are trained well at insinuating themselves into your home). The delusional part(s)? They come around every six months or so, and think I’m going to let them in eventually; also, soliciting in our area is illegal without a license, and eventually someone’s going to have them clapped in irons (okay, cited with a slap-on-the-wrist fine). Difference is, if some bald Anton LaVey-looking dude were to come to my door with hammer in hand, spewing nonsense about Thor being the one true Skydaddy, I’ll choose to interpret this as a threat and actually break his nose.

      Also, just as an afterthought and to continue our education about extinct Norse religions, Thor was hardly the chief god of the pantheon. Nor was Odin, originally, despite what is generally thought today and what RJK and JW say in the Cyclopedia.

      A little etymology:

      The reconstructed proto-IE for “god” is *deiwos, and most of your chief lightning-throwing paternal figures, heading the main groups of polytheistic gods are variations on this word, which is most obviously related to Latin “deus” and English “deity”. Greek “Zeus”, Latin “Ju-piter” (the original Godfather), and Norse “Tiwas” (later to become Tyr). So, the one-handed justice god was their original head, with Odin (a foreign introduction from the steppes of Russia, whether Scythian, Hunnic, or just Gothic is unclear) usurping this position later on.

      Thor? A rain god, popular with farmers. In other words, the god the peasants worshiped in Scandinavia before more aggressive cults “proselytized” them. Always the most popular cult, though, since peasants are always the most numerous group.

      “Schools, and scouting groups, and summer camps, with enough Heathen kids to make them really viable, and not just something done in someone’s garage for a few weekends during the summer.”

      This deranged fuck just gets creepier and creepier. The OSR will unite to beat up a cancer-stricken housewife in Australia, but they look the other way when one of their own wants to take their children into garages for a little “Astruar summer” and expanding the Folk. He publically brags that his religion is one of violence, and these dumbfucks still kiss his horse penis-filled ass.

      • September 10, 2013 11:10 am

        I’m sure the “urban” will be tactfully discouraged. That black face would be like Idris Elba playing Heimðall in the Thor movie, Alonzo Greer as “the black irish” in Fox’s short-lived “Roar” TV show or cultus sabbati secrets passed on to people not in your bloodline: all blasphemy against the old gods. They may be able to start for the Celtics though.

        But seriously, “sumer is icumen” camps (probably subsidized with public dollars) to indoctrinate neighborhood kids, “big tents” and trusting anyone who “may practice a different religion” to keep his fucking wyrd are not part of the solution for authentic pagans. They are part of the fucking problem. He keeps running to these things whenever he gets an especially frisky pony up his æsir. It’s all LARPing with this guy.

    Thor may not be the main god (or “gawd” as the Unlblown like to write in forums), but he does have a Hulk. And an Iron Man. Plus he fucks that Black Swan chick.

    If Jehonva’s witnesses ever came to my door all I would be able to talk about was Michael Jackson and how he and his family were JW’s, and how even as an adult he’d go out in disguise doing it like he was trick or treating or some shit. . How he made a public apology for doing Thriller because of his religion. After about 5 minutes they’d slam the door on MY face.

    But wouldn’t you know it, the slot has already been filled by Rick Loomis. ydis is way more famous than he is these days.

    At first I think a lot of us were hoping Blooey would see our goofing as a wake up call that he was dangerously delusional. Flash forward several months later and I think a lot of us are like teenagers on a street corner, mouths agape and looking at the dripping wreckage of a metal twisting, head on car crash. We are inwardly confused and terrified, but outwardly we are trying to be macho and make nervous jokes because our asshole friends are present. The paramedics show up and we’re like “hey dude, you better hurry up and pork her before she gets cold!”

    If all the dipshits on the forums would speak up and confront the guy, give him a fucking intervention instead of being all “good for you! Keep up the good work! Keep us posted!” I’d like to think he’d wake up. But I’m pretty sure the poor sap lives on the Bizzarro world where it is always “opposite Tuesday.”

        For the love of everything holy, he should not be writing his own copy:

It boasts many museums, a jillion specialty shops, lots of cozy and quaint or loud and boisterous bars and restaraunts and great scenery. Polyhedracon has listed some attractions here for you if you care to explore the city.”

        “Many original our replica buildings” you say? How are those buildings “in its architecture”? Are there buildings inside of buildings like some sort of fucked up Russian nesting doll?

        A jillion specialty shops? Is this town infinitely large?

As for donations, stationary and office supplies will certainly be required.
