SPONGEBOB COMICS #71

(W) Graham Annable (A/CA) Graham Annable
It’s our first “Will You Please Be Quiet” issue-featuring not as many words as usual! First, in an epic tale by Graham Annable (Box Trolls, Grickle), King Neptune can’t stand the racket made by the denizens of Bikini Bottom, so he casts a Bubble of Silence over the whole town-as underwater deities often do. But the shenanigans of SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton won’t be stopped by a mere lack of sound-and they may prove the undoing of Neptune himself! Plus: a silent “SpongeFunnies” by Kochalka; a wordless “Flotsam & Jetsam: Ocean Facts” by Maris Wicks; and two more stories where the only sound… will be your own laughter! (Void where prohibited.)

How to Create a 7-Stage Gradient

Knitting | Work in Progress - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 10:30
By now, it's obvious I'm a fan of ombres and gradients in all their forms, but there's something particularly appealing about seven-stage gradients, the next topic in our ongoing series.

Recently in How to Create a 6-Stage Gradient, I mentioned an easy way to adapt that strategy to create a seven-color gradient. Today, we're focusing on a different approach, but it works equally well.

6. Seven-stage gradientColsie Green Gradient

Yarn. Cotton Fleece (Brown Sheep)
Stitch. This fast, easy slipped rib stitch is stretchy, reversible and does a respectable job of blending colors.

Strategy.  Solid sections are connected by transitional sections with two-row stripes. To achieve a similar look:
  • Choose four related colors. 
  • Arrange them dark to light or light to dark.
  • Work the section 1 with CC1.
  • Work the section 2 with CC1 and CC2.
  • Work the section 3 with CC2.
  • Work the section 4 with CC2 and CC3.
  • Work the section 5 with CC3.
  • Work the section 6 with CC3 and CC4.
  • Work the section 7 with CC4.

                  In this instance, the colors were worked as follows:
                  • Section 1: New Age Teal
                  • Section 2: New Age Teal and Sage
                  • Section 3: Sage
                  • Section 4: Sage and Light Jade
                  • Section 5: Jade
                  • Section 6: Jade and Rue
                  • Section 7: Rue

                  Seven-stage gradients work with any color combination, and because they're infinitely adaptable, they hold universal appeal. As a bonus, adding a fifth color makes it easy to expand this seven-stage gradient into a nine-stage version.
                  Uncertain where to start? Try creating a neutral ombre using four shades of grey ranging from deep charcoal to light silver, or four earthy tones ranging from dark brown to light sand. Or try a vivid scheme using saturated shades of fuchsia, purple, turquoise and lime.

                  Small, quick projects like these mitts, which feature leftovers generated by a steady stream of projects worked in shades of green, are an effective way to transform remnants and random skeins into something fun and functional. I'm off to tackle more examples for the next round of ombre and gradient how-to posts, and hopefully make some headway on the way-too-many WIPs on the needles.

                  Meanwhile, I encourage you to choose four colors that speak to you, cast on something simple, and experiment with the rich possibilities of seven-stage gradients. And if you do, be sure to come back and tell us about it.

                  Fiction Review: Lovecraft Country

                  19th Level - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 02:45

                  “Arkham,” Atticus said. “The letter says Mom’s ancestors come from Arkham, Massachusetts.” Arkham: home of the corpse reanimator Herbert West, and of Miskatonic University, which had sponsored the fossil-hunting expedition to the mountains of madness. “It is made up, right? I mean—”  “Oh, yeah,” George said. “Lovecraft based it on Salem, I think, but it’s not a real place . . . Let me see that letter.” Atticus handed it to him and George studied it, squinting and tilting his head side to side. “It’s a ‘d,’” he said finally.
                  Matt Ruff's Lovecraft Country is an unusual novel - it is a collection of interconnected tales about Atticus Turner and his friends and family in the 1950s.

                  Atticus is an African-American from Chicago. He is from an upper middle class family, with an uncle who owns a travel agency and publishes the Safe Negro Travel Guide, based upon the real world Negro Motorist Green Book which provided African-American travelers advice on what businesses would service their vehicles, where they could stay and eat on the road, etc. It's depressing as hell to reflect that there was a need for such a book.

                  Atticus is a veteran of the Korean War. He'd spent some time working in Florida but living in the south did not agree with him so when he received a strange letter from his estranged father he jumped at the excuse to head back home. Atticus loves science fiction, a love he shares with his uncle George. His father, Montrose, is less a fan of such works - he especially dislikes Lovecraft, having dug up some of Lovecraft's nastier writings on African-Americans.

                  However, Montrose is missing, having traveled to Ardham, Massachusetts, tracking down his late wife's family background. We learn that she (and Atticus) are descended from a powerful sorcerer and his slave - a slave who ran off around the same time that sorcerer performed  a disastrous experiment. This makes Attiucs the sole surviving direct descendant of that sorcerer and of great interest to the sorcerers (they prefer the term "natural philosophers") who have reformed it. The current head is a member of that family, but not a direct descendant like Atticus.

                  The novel tells the tale of Atticus, along with his family and friends, as they deal with both the supernatural and the reality of being black men and women living in a world where racism is comfortably institutionalized. The stories in the novel run the gamut of HP Lovecraft's tales - secret cults, ghost stories, physical transformation, visits to far off alien worlds, etc.

                  I greatly enjoyed the use of Lovecraftian ideas in a story with African-American protagonists, given Lovecraft's own racist views. Montrose berates his son for his fondness of Lovecraft, uncovering Lovecraft's poem "On the Creation of Niggers" as evidence.

                  These stories also make for great inspiration for a Call of Cthulhu game. Atticus and company have multiple contacts with the supernatural over a period of several months, similar to how a group of Call of Cthulhu investigators will have multiple adventures.

                  Jordan Peele is making this novel into an HBO series. I think it has the potential to be a great show and will be looking forward to it.

                  Tentative - Tavern Talk Live Call In Show - Test - 10 PM to 1030 PM Eastern Thursday May 25th.

                  Tenkar's Tavern - Tue, 05/23/2017 - 22:51
                  Alright. I've done some research, so it SHOULD work in theory, just need to test how WELL it works in practice.

                  Thursday night at 10 PM Eastern we are going to do a test run of the Tavern Talk Live Call In Show via Facebook Live. I expect things to go all buggered, but that IS the point of a test.

                  Why Facebook and not Youtube? Because Youtube had some major hiccups when Zach and I were using that for the livecasts. Hell, in the end we might wind up using Youtube - thus the testing this Thursday Night.

                  I'll post the Google Voice number on Thursday before we start the test.

                  This is either going to rock hard or suck eggs ;)

                  Huzzah!

                  Once the kinks work out we'll set a schedule and general topics. I'm figuring one 30 to 60 min show once a week, with alternate weeks being late evening and late morning my time. In any case, that's putting the horse before the cart. Need to see if the idea works on the technical level first...

                  RICH REVIEWS: Pizza Tree

                  First Comics News - Tue, 05/23/2017 - 15:51

                  Title: Pizza Tree
                  Publisher: Arcana/Artistacomics
                  Written by: Chase & Mark Poulon
                  Art & Letters by: Ryan Onorato
                  Layouts by: Mark Poulon
                  Price: $9.95 US/ $12.95 Canadian
                  Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
                  Website: www.arcana.com
                  Comments: This is an all ages/children’s hardcover book.
                  We get to meet the Poulon family, Chase and his parents Mark and Chrissy. The story is set up nicely in the first couple of pages.
                  The art is done in soft colors. The drawings are in a style perfect for young readers.
                  The story progresses smoothly and Chase finds himself with a pizza tree. That is definitely something that you do not see. Of course having a tree that grows pizza is great at first. Than the horror part of this story slowly kicks in and builds ever so slowly, than the momentum kicks in faster.
                  P’Thulhu and the Pizza Tree are a wonderful creation from the minds of Chase and Mark. They have brought these characters to life.
                  After reading this book you may never look at pizza the same again.

                  Kickstarter - Archive: Historical People, Places, and Events for RPGs (System Neutral)

                  Tenkar's Tavern - Tue, 05/23/2017 - 15:23
                  In the way back, before I was a blogger, before I was a cop, before I worked retail - I was a college student. Not thinking so clearly back in the fall of 85 I decided to defer my major and just take the core requirements and classes that interested me. Lo and behold, come my Junior Year (as college credits are tallied, not by years spent) the computer wouldn't let me register without a major. Reflecting on the classes I had taken prior, t appeared to me that I had self selected History - Sociology was nearly tied, but what does one do with Sociology. Come to think of it, what does one do with History? ;)

                  Where does all of this lead us? Right to the Archive Kickstarter. If you dig history, if you love RPGs, you'll love the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup that's been put together for you.
                  Archive is a collection of adventure sites, NPCs, and events ripped right out of history and perfect for your campaign. It’s a 265-page book with 80 subjects. All have everything you need to make them come alive at your table: sights, smells, history, local color, and even plot hooks and ideas to help you adapt them to your campaign setting. Need a villain? Throw your PCs against Ching Shih, the notorious pirate queen, presented with the tactics and schemes she used to wreak havoc across coastal China! Need a random encounter during travel? Recreate the 1861 encounter of the French corvette Alecton with a dying giant squid, and the social consequences that followed. Need an adventure site? Why not Fort Jefferson, complete with real historical secrets for your PCs to uncover?I actually have an advance copy of the PDF. 260 some odd pages, suffice to say I have not read it all. But what I HAVE read appeals to me as both a gamer and a history buff. It scratches both itches and it does it well.

                  10 bucks for the PDF is a steal. Seriously. 30 for the book plus PDF which is also damn good.

                  I'm going to do something I rarely if ever do, mostly because I don't have a product to review in order to do so - The Tavern is endorsing the Archive Kickstarter. the PDF exists, I have it and backers get their PDF in June - next month.

                  Additionally, Tristan Zimmerman of Molten Sulfur Press reached out to me in the right way. Seriously. He hit all of the notes - polite, respectful, explained the project, included a sample (well, the whole book) and ended with the following: "There’s an advance reader’s copy of the book attached. If you happen to glance at it and you like what you see, I’d sure be grateful if you’d mention it, but no pressure. Whether you tell anybody or not, we really hope you enjoy the book, and thank you for your time."

                  Kickstarter creators, take notes. There is a right way and a wrong way to get attention. Maybe reach out to Tristan if you need to refine your skills.
