Thunderstorm

A little too close for comfort, eh? This comic is from Steven Dengler and Ash Vickers of Megacynics.

Two-Year-Old Bakes a Cake



Two-year-old Roman bakes his first cake. The cake making itself is not so astonishing, since Mommy does the measuring and part of the mixing. However, I was surprised to find that Roman is a boy, since he has an amazing vocabulary for that age. In my experience, girls learn words very early and boys don't talk until you start worrying about them. Then they suddenly speak in complete sentences. Of course, that's generalizing, and I shouldn't assume all kids are the same. Anyway, Roman is adorable as he leads us through the process of baking a delicious cake.

Handy Second Language

Africa, '50s Style



It's an '80s song set to a '50s beat, and Generation Z doesn't understand at all. But the rest of us can enjoy Postmodern Jukebox with guest musicians Casey Abrams and Snuffy Walden performing Toto's "Africa." (via Laughing Squid)

Catwalk



What would we do without the joy of making these graceful and dignified animals into our personal version of a comedy show? (via Everlasting Blort)

He Did It

A little reminder that "famous" doesn't necessarily mean "good." This is the latest comic from Chris at Lunarbaboon.

Mars Rover Vehicle Navigator Test Drive



Stephen Colbert and Neil DeGrasse Tyson took a little test drive in the new Mars Rover Vehicle Navigator (MRVN), a NASA prototype built for humans to drive on Mars. Considering who is driving, there is much silliness. Read more about the vehicle here.


Democratic Party Strategy Meeting

Allocation of resources is a contentious topic when you're trying to break a one-party rule of all three branches of government. But seriously, folks, if you want more bang for your buck, send your donations to Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota. (via Metafilter)


The Liberal Redneck has a Plan for Climate Change



I love Trae Crowder. He's honestly funny in all his videos. In fact, most of them are funnier than this one, but the language is usually too blue for my blog. In this one, he keeps it relatively clean, probably because he has a surprise guest.


Happy Equinox!

It was a long and miserable summer. I started it by losing one job, and ended it by losing another. The weather was hot and miserable, ruining my sleep and filling the entire house with mold. The tomato crop failed. I am so glad it's over. Autumn is going to be awesome! 

How a Television Show Gets Made



Got an idea for a TV show? Good luck. That idea is just the beginning of a long and stressful process of getting a show made. It involves lots of money, a bunch of people, changes at every step of the way, and then you have a pilot. That's when it gets really interesting, but no less stressful. Vanity Fair takes us through the process quickly, and you can see how risky it is to work in the industry. But it can also be very rewarding. (via Tastefully Offensive)

Shook the Whole House

Great Dane Does Lunges



"I don't know what you're doing, Dad, but I wanna do it, too!"

Eli Clark was exercising by doing lunges across the living room, and his great Dane Luca did his best to join in. He didn't quite understand what moves were involved, but gosh darn it, he did his best! That's a good dog. Luca now has his own Instagram account. (via Tastefully Offensive

Yeah, it's a special day. The equinox isn't until tomorrow, but Demi Adejuyigbe celebrates the 21st of September every year. This year he went all out. (via Metafilter)
