Pets of the Week August 24, 2015

Mollie
This 2-year-old Amerian Staffordshire Terrier mix has gone from “rags to riches.” Mollie was found stray, malnourished, and very afraid. After arriving at the animal shelter she received the nurturing and nourishing she needed to feel well and get healthy. She quickly became staff favorite, returning the care she received with love and newfound trust. Now she takes rides with a staff member every day to get lunch and is walked regularly to work off the good food she enjoys. Besides meals and getting attention, her favorite activity is playing with toys. Tug-o-war is her go-to game and, although she has the strength to win each time, she teasingly allows her opponent to think he/she may have a chance. Miss Mollie has experienced a true makeover — inside and out — and is flourishing as a wonderfully fun and engaging canine companion ready to move into a new home and life.

Paul
Paul is a handsome gentleman cat who, at 8 yrs of age, has reached the stage of his life that his activity preference is lounging. He is at the shelter because his owner was too ill to care for him and he has seemingly acclimated to the idea of enjoying the rest of his life in different surroundings. Sharing space with cats of all ages, he is displaying a level of patience that is often not seen in cats, as he allows the younger kitties to play with his tail and run circles around him. He even tolerates playing dress up (don’t ask), and it’s often more the expression on his face that will have you smiling than the cute outfit he’s donning. Paul not only gets along with cats, he enjoys the company of well-behaved dogs as well. With football season coming up, he is trained and ready to help you cheer on your favorite teams, all while lounging next to you on a comfy couch, of course.

Pets of the Week August 17, 2015

Libby
Libby is a lively and loveable Hound pup with a short black and white coat and a face that can only be described as cheek-pinching cute. She’s medium-sized now, but at 10 months she will keep growing and need plenty of room to stretch her legs. Libby possesses great excitement and love for people. Her joy is contagious and people feel happier for being around her. With her playful heart and enduring stamina, Libby would do best in a home full of kids or healthy high-activity, and a fenced backyard where she can play with wreckless abandon. Visit Libby and let her leap into your life, lift your spirit, and brighten your every day.

Big Mama
There is no mistaking Big Mama. She’s the one who looks like she’s never missed a meal and ate everyone elses, too. A “big boned” gal with a large personality to match, this sweet five-year-old kitty is everyone’s “mama.” She firmly lets the other cats know what to do, how to do, and when to do. When her motherly directing is complete, she enjoys sitting on the highest perch she can find and keeping a watchful eye on the goings-on below. And just like a mama, she loves kids and is open to love and hugs whenever they need it. Big Mama will also keep your house tidy as her long hair sweeps the floor or rubs against the wall to give it a quick dusting. Allow your heart to be filled by opening your home to this kitty and get ready to call it Big Mama’s House.

Pets of the Week August 10, 2015

merlin
Merlin is a 1 year old American Pitbull Terrier mix, but don’t let his breed and solid build fool you. This guy is a total push-over. Like a marshmallow, Merlin is soft, squishy, and sweet. His short white coat and pink nose make him a standout in any crowd; however, these physical traits require him to be mostly an inside dog. No one wants a burnt marshmallow. Merlin happily greets all people, but when it comes to other dogs, he’s a ladies’ man through and through. Merlin loves to play and is best paired with a medium/large female doggie friend. As far as cats go, he doesn’t understand the purpose of the feline species, so cats are a no-no. Come meet this powder puff pooch and let him sweeten up your life.

Rose
Rose is a Domestic Long Haired kitty who has overcome the odds. She came to the shelter as tiny kitten only weeks old. Rose battled illness, and with the will power and stubbornness of an ox, this little baby is well and has grown into a beautiful, 5 month old, young cat. Being a Dilute Calico, Rose has a pattern that is as unique as she is. Despite the hectic lifestyle all around her, she has kept a very calm demeanor and her spirits high. This sweet girl has been cooped up too long and dreams of a home where she can stretch her legs and fill your heart.

Pets of the Week August 3, 2015

Azula
Azula is a Weimaraner mix who catches the attention people and dog alike. She has a bronze coat kissed by the sun and “legs for days,” but it’s her golden heart that makes her special and it shines through her eyes. At only 6 months old, Azula still has a lot of puppy in her so she loves to bounce around and have fun. Patience is a virtue while she learns the ropes of being a good dog; but this silly pup is eager to please and should earn a gold star in no time! Azula is a social butterfly who hasn’t met a person she doesn’t like. She especially enjoys playtime and the companionship of her 4 legged friends, so she would do best in a home with other furry family members.

yoshi
Yoshi is an adorable 2 year old domestic short hair kitty with a white coat and brown tabby spots. She has a heartwarming face with large lemon eyes and a dainty pink nose. Her silky fur and slender body give her an elegant appearance and she carries herself with just as much grace. Yoshi’s sleeping posture looks a bit like she could be playing opossum. She sprawls out on her back with her feet curled up and snores very sweetly dreaming of having a home and family of her very own. No matter how at rest she may look, feel free to wake her with a kindly scratch behind the ear because as much as she loves naps, she adores attention even more.

Recommendation: Mulitplex webcomic

multiplex_book1_largeI am a big fan of the Multiplex Webcomic. multiplexcomic.com

From the site:
Multiplex is an online comic about the movie-loving and customer-weary staff of your local movie theater. It is written and illustrated by Gordon McAlpin. It has been running continuously since July 2005, and serves roughly 50,000 unique visitors per month (or about half a million pageviews per month).

For New Readers: Click Here

I wanted to bring this up, because the artist on Multiplex, Gordon McAlpin, is about to wrap up a Kickstarter
for a third volume collected edition of strips. I have backed the first 2 volumes and this one as well. Gordon has always delivered on his Kickstarted projects. He has also been very communicative with his backers as well. Not something you see from everyone runnign a KickStarter lately.


I’m not much of a reviewer. But the interplay of characters brings me back week after week. It has been a treat to see the characters grow and change. The strip runs more or less in real time. You’ll see current movie posters in the background. You get your funny. You get some angst. You get some romance. You get some snark.

I’ll leave off with 3 words: Zombie Movie Arc

UPDATE:  The Kickstarter for Book 3 was a success!!!

Welcome to my little corner of the interweb.
