These four panels are from recently uncovered artistic superstar Brad Lyonn’s insane online comic, Gato del Fuego. It’s an 18-page graphic novel, basically. I feel so so so lucky to have seen that last post at oneterabyteofkilobyteage. They post like 50x a day and most are just loads of random nothingness. But this was meaningful and different: a man, mostly unknown, lost to the seas of time, here now in my life and for eternity or the rest of day. We found each other.

And if that wasn’t all… he’s a raging, racist tea party lunatic! Like an onion, I tell ya!!

Well, I found this guy online today: brad-lyonn.com. His website is amazing and–oh yeah–he did get around to publishing an anthology of his stories: Journey. Follow him on Twitter @blyonn.

Make no bones about it, I cannot effing wait until next baseball season when A-Rod returns with new secret steroids and has an MVP-caliber season on route to leading the Yankees to their first Jeter-less championship in a million years.
Although, I realize hoping he moves to shortstop as he does this is asking too much, that would be MY cherry-on-top narrative.
More thoughts on this exclusive profile of the noted legend:

Jeter’s one explicit goal is to own a Major League franchise. “No former player has owned a team in baseball,” he says, his voice rising with a competitive edge. “In basketball, M.J., obviously. But not in baseball.”

Naturally. The man who exhibited zero soul in two decades as a public figure aspires for most soulless position in second career. 

He has come out the other end of the fame machine with his sanity intact, with a valuable brand—and with an invaluable education in modern media.

Ugh, the @darrenrovell-est possoble athlete of all-time.

He steps down the front stairs, slips on a pair of black aviator shades, and heads toward the local Starbucks for his regular grande red-eye. Then it’s around the corner to the garage where his Mercedes is waiting; Jeter drives himself. As he strides along the narrow West Village slate sidewalk, he squeezes past a guy walking a small dog and offers a friendly nod, just like a civilian. The man turns and resumes walking the dog, then does a double take. But Derek Jeter is gone.

The fuck.
I can’t even. Throughout the course of that feature, I could feel the author’s tone change from weariness to acceptance, and that really bummed me out. We have to fight against the mega-phonies like Jeter and embrace the fucked-up, delusional weirdos like A-Rod. If we don’t, the future will be so bland you don’t even know how bland.
"Just like a civilian…" FUCK ALL Y’ALL.

I propose to you a new album cover for a nonexistent Vernon Howl record Backbreaker based on a weird picture of Derek Jeter from this NY Mag feature.

Yesterday I saw a dog sitting in the driver’s seat of a truck like the kind of funny image you see online at your favorite image-sharing websites all the live-long day but this was actually right in front of my eyeballs in the flesh and omg it was so beautiful too bad the pic I snapped wasn’t internet-quality and thus I cannot share :(

Update: I did go ahead and make this the new masthead of vh dot tumblr dot com but while we look to the future let’s not forget the past. Namely, this Carl D. Perkins Vocational Training Center masthead, which served as masthead for roughly two weeks after my big minimalist redesign.
I think “Ted’s Take” has a chance to last a lot longer.

Bears-Packers is the 2nd game in NFL history with no punts … It seems like this would happen somewhat regularly, but this is only the second game in NFL history where neither punter was called upon. The previous was a Buffalo-San Francisco game from 1992, where Steve Young and Jim Kelly led their teams to over 1,000 yards of total offense.

I realize maybe 0.00000001% of the population is into this sort of thing. But you have to stray true to what makes you happy. Even if it seems like you are alone and the thing isn’t worth sharing. Just blog it.

Pulling a page out of the Thom Yorke playbook as I am wont to do.
(Good playbook reference, cool there is so much sportstalk on this blog, I bet is what you’re thinking.)

This is an underrated NFL head coach ‘tirade’ video. Jim Fassel was basically an underrated NFL head coach, as well. I was going to make this same speech to my fantasy football team but we are not actually connected in any visceral way and they got the vibe before this weekend’s games based on the harsh feels I was putting out in their general, cosmic direction.
