Obscure For A Penny Zero: 7EVEN http://theobscuregentlemen.com/2018/01/11/obscure-for-a-penny-zero-7even/ http://theobscuregentlemen.com/2018/01/11/obscure-for-a-penny-zero-7even/#respond Thu, 11 Jan 2018 21:39:06 +0000 http://theobscuregentlemen.com/?p=5086 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]> Welcome to “7eventh” season of Obscure For a Penny Zero! The twitter

 

If you’re new to our twitter contest, here’s everything you need to know to get on the road to everlasting glory and literally the most sought-after trophy in all of the 12 kingdoms.

 

Our contest plays out under conventional bracket-style rules. Think Bloodsport, starring Jean Claude Van Damme. Or Kickboxer, starring Jean Claude Van Damme. Or NCAA Basketball, which is sometimes viewed by Jean Claude Van Damme.

 

Contestants are initially seeded based on follower count, to do battle over the course of several rounds, each with its own unique topic or theme. All tweet matchups are judged anonymously based on the text of the tweets alone, by a diverse panel of judges including accomplished writers, artists and humorists from primarily outside of the Twitterverse.

 

WHAT IT MEANS

Anonymous judging and the diversity of our judging panel help ensure that your tweet will rise (or fall) on its merits alone. You won’t get any special consideration for your follower count, Favstar trophies, which Twitter clique you claim, or the percentage of your avi that consists of cleavage. Your reputation and past glories don’t matter. The judges choose between two tweets based on their ability to put a truly unique and funny spin on the topic at hand. The winner moves on to the next round, and so on and so forth, until one champion remains standing.

 

THE RULES

All contestants will be given the round’s theme and have 24 hours or sometimes more to respond with a new, original tweet.

Once you have posted your tweet, submit it to @theobscuregents account and @obscuregent will then send you and your opponent’s tweets text-only to a panel of 9 judges.

Once you submit, your opponent will be notified. Once they submit, you are both locked in and judging commences.

Winners will be announced as they are decided.

All contest updates will be sent to the individual contestants by DM and posted on the TheObscureGentlemen.com

 

 

FINAL BATTLE RULE:

To make things interesting, the championship match is a best of three battle: one new themed tweet on the given topic, one new freestyle tweet on a topic of your own choosing, and one old tweet of your choosing from your own timeline.

 

SWEETENING THE POT

In addition to bragging rights, the winner of Obscure For A  Penny Zero 7 receives the following:

 

-$40 Gift Card to KFC, the staple diet of our The Obscure Gentlemen food reviewer Adult Male

-2 movie tickets (per Plain Zero podcast rules, make sure the movie is at least 10 years old)

-Your winning tweet turned into an Obscure Gentlemen comic

-Obscure Gentlemen hoodie

-Obscure Gentlemen t-shirt

-Obscure Gentlemen baseball cap

-Obscure Gentlemen AVI

-You select topics for the 12 For A Penny, Plain Zero, and Obscure Gentlemen podcasts

-You choose one food item for the Adult Male to review on YouTube

 

Second Place

-Your runner-up tweet turned into an Obscure Gentlemen comic

-Obscure Gentlemen Hoodie

 

TIMING

The first topic will be announced on January 29th and your first round tweet will be due on February 5th by 1:38PM. That’s right, you get one full week this time. No excuses.

 

FAQs

Q: What if I buy votes for myself or my opponent to make them look bad?

 

A: This vote CANNOT be manipulated with money or bots. Votes can’t be bought because you don’t know the judges. Also, manipulating online contests is just plain sad.

 

Q: My tweet exploded and went viral and yet I lost. Maybe your judges suck?

 

A: Hey pal! You can go fuck yourself, buddy! Be happy that we helped you go viral by providing the prompt in the first place.

 

Q: Hello, I’m still a bee-themed account and I still think I’m an actual bee. How did my superior bee-themed tweet lose, even though I borrowed the premise from two other tweets by bigger Twitter accounts?

 

A: That’s a great question and another reason to go fuck yourself!

 

Q: Will I have a better chance of winning if I already own an OG shirt, Hoodie, AVI, eye patch, or tattoo?

 

A: No! The judges don’t care if you’re wearing Hypercolor David Lee Roth shirts with cross-color Beyond Baggy jeans. They won’t know and don’t care how well you know Jim or Aaron.

 

Q: Do RTs or Favs matter?

 

A: Again, the judges don’t see them, so no they don’t. You could have been retweeted by Mark Hoppus and all of Blues Traveler and it still won’t matter. (Joke used last contest, but is still relevant.)

 

Q: Can I tweet as many times as I want before choosing one to submit?

 

A: Everyone has different tactics and strategies. Tweet as many or as few responses to the prompt as you want. You only submit one. Just make sure you’re happy with it. Send one tweet and one tweet only to @theobscuregents via DM. You can, however, change your submission as long as your opponent hasn’t locked in the battle with their submission.

 

Q: I’m like the greatest tweeter and all of my friends in my DM rooms say so, how did I lose to a shit tweet and how did my ego get so big from writing jokes for free on the Internet?

 

A: Fam. Can I call you fam? Sometimes both tweets are subpar and ones just moves on by necessity. Or maybe one only works as an inside joke for Twitter. Just remember, your friends will lie to you and say your tweet is better than your opponent’s even if it isn’t. That’s what friends do. Statistically speaking, it’s extremely likely that you will lose. But there’s always next time.

 

Q: Can I find out what the score was, how many judges voted for me vs my opponent?

 

A: Yes, ask @theobscuregents account and we will tell you. Please don’t cry or vomit when you find out how lopsided the vote was against you.

 

Q: I’m going to ask @obscuregent for advice in choosing the tweet I submit. That’ll give me an edge, right?

 

A: NOPE! He will NOT give you advice and frankly he HATES giving advice. He will be nice and say “Oh wow” and “That’s crazy” but he really does not like helping people decide on the tweet that they are submitting. Nor, frankly, does he have a very good track record of predicting what the judges will favor. So stay away from him!

 

Q: How do I get into the next contest?

 

A: DM @theObscuregents and ask them and you’ll be added to the list.

Remember in 2016 when a bunch of really talented and remarkable human beings passed away? Remember how it never seemed to end and we though to ourselves, “How can this get any worse?” Political turmoil aside, it sure did get worse. As it would turn out, late 2017 decided to hit us with, what some are calling, THE WEINSTEIN EFFECT. One by one, week after week we’ve seen once beloved performers across all forms of media and entertainment, revealed as human garbage fires of sexual harassment. Who is next? Only time will tell. But we must ask ourselves, what does 2018 hold in store and how much lower can everything sink? Will our work of fantasy become a reality? We certainly hope not.

Quick note, in case you’re wondering. Today’s comic is based off of a viral tweet by the very writer of THIS comic. That’s right, before anyone screams “stolen content reeeeee!” be aware that the writer of the Gents and that sensational tweet are one and the same. Go figure.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Today we’ve gone back in time and revisited a VERY old comic from our first Halloween ever. That was in 1938. Pretty crazy. It’s always cool updating old comics, especially from a time in which you hadn’t really a full grasp of the medium.

As for the comic itself. Basically, Creature from the Black Lagoon is kinda lame, just like Aquaman. Don’t get me wrong, there have been times where I enjoy Aquaman. Peter David and Grant Morrison were able to work wonders with him. Same for a few other writers. But mostly he’s boring. As for The Creature, I personally think he’s the worst of the Universal Monsters. He’s technically not even from the era that started with Dracula. His movie came out during the atom age! Eh, what can you do.

Have a great Halloween everyone and stay safe!

Today’s comic is about that great saying, “I’ll see you in hell”, backfiring. When you think about it, why would you wanna be in the same place as someone you detest? That saying maybe isn’t so great is it? What kind of thread is that, really? Hey you’re gonna go to hell, but guess what… SO AM I. Then it’s like, okay, you’re both bad and evil dudes. Makes no sense. I’ll see you in the gutter from my penthouse! See, that has more of a punch. Makes you feel like a million bucks. Also when you go to hell, you look the way you did when dying.

Today’s comic was created by old school Obscure Gentlemen writer and current 12 For a Penny podcast co-host Yama. The Juggalos stormed Washington this weekend, go look it up!

Obscure Gent

And now a special message from Yama Himself.

Today’s comic is bittersweet to me for a number of reasons. It is the first I have written since I was fired from the Obscure Gentlemen for, in the words of editor in chief Gym Alvarez, “Engaging in Twitter bullying in a manner contrary to the values of our brand, and this is not up for agreement!” It was also a difficult comic to write because I was forced to admit that all of these years later, my friend was right about the merits of the Juggalo movement. We live in a world where the wise leaders of the so-called Reaistance compromise at every turn, while two corny motherfuckers in clown makeup lead a mass movement for social justice. Strange times indeed! Lastly, this comic is for charity. (Note: this comic is not for charity. Yama says things and we just nod and agree)

The comic you see before you is based on true events. Does it matter if the bird was talking shit or literally shitting on Travis Adult Male? I don’t think so. We get so obsessed with these details that we often miss the bigger picture. This picture is that birds can be real huge assholes and words hurt as much as poop. So please, pray for Travis Adult Male in his time of need and that all birds might become constipated.

ALSO: Happy birthday to James (my eldest brother/co-founder who normally writes these things) and the Adult Male himself Travis. Give ’em both a round o applause!

ROUND 2

Congratulations on surviving the first round of the OFAPZ games! That was a brutal round. But if you’re here, it means you’ve got what it takes to go the distance. Or maybe it means your opponent choked. Or perhaps it means our judges don’t know what they’re thinking. It could mean anything, really.

But whatever it means, this round we’re giving you the opposite challenge: instead of using the full limit of Twitter’s capabilities, we’re asking you to be brilliant and funny in as few words as possible. Ten words to be exact.

Theme: Any new tweet using 10 words or less. By New we mean anything after the time stamp on this blog: 3:41pm PST

Due: 08/30 11:34 AM PST

Instructions: Tweet must be both posted and DM’d to @theobscuregents by the date and time above.

Reminder: Tweet as many or as few potential entries as you want. Submit as soon as you wish or wait until the deadline.

OBSCURE FOR A PENNY ZERO 6: FROM ASHES WE RISE http://theobscuregentlemen.com/2017/08/08/obscure-for-a-penny-zero-6-from-ashes-we-rise/ http://theobscuregentlemen.com/2017/08/08/obscure-for-a-penny-zero-6-from-ashes-we-rise/#respond Tue, 08 Aug 2017 23:31:30 +0000 http://theobscuregentlemen.com/?p=4778 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]> WE’RE BACK. HERE’S WHY.
We said never again. Yet here we are, fam: announcing the 6th Obscure
For a Penny Zero tweet contest.

Why? People loved our last five tournaments and asked for another. New
contestants asked for their first chance at the brass ring. And the
judges loved doing it, too. So why kill the fun?

THE BASICS
Our contest plays out under conventional bracket-style rules.
Contestants are initially seeded based on follower count, to do battle
over the course of several rounds with their own unique themes. All
tweet matchups are judged anonymously based on the text of the tweets
alone, by a diverse panel of judges including accomplished writers,
artists and humorists from primarily outside of the Twitterverse.

WHAT IT MEANS
Anonymous judging and the diversity of our judging panel mean that
your tweet will rise (or fall) on the merits alone. You won’t get any
special consideration for your follower count, Favstar trophies, which
Twitter clique you claim, or the percentage of your avi that consists
of cleavage. Your reputation and past glories don’t matter. The judges
choose between two tweets on their merits alone and on their ability
to put a truly unique and funny spin on the topic at hand. The winner
moves on to the next round, and so on and so forth, until only one
remains standing.

THE RULES
All contestants will be given the round’s theme and have 24 hours or
sometimes more to produce a tweet.

Submit your NEW tweets to @theobscuregents account and @obscuregent
will then send you and your opponent’s tweets text-only to a panel of
9 judges.

Once you submit, your opponent will be notified. Once they submit, the
judging occurs.

Winners will be announced as they are decided.

All contest updates will be sent to the individual contestants by DM
and posted on the theObscureGentlemen.com

Winner moves on to the next round.

NEW FINAL BATTLE RULE:
To make things interesting, the championship match will now be a best
of three battle: one themed tweet on the given topic, one best-of old
tweet, and one freestyle tweet on a topic of the contestant’s own
choosing.

SWEETENING THE POT
The winner of Obscure For A  Penny Zero 6 receives the following:
-$69 Gift Card to Taco Bell, the staple diet of our resident food
reviewer The Adult Male
-Your winning tweet turned into an Obscure Gentlemen comic
-Obscure Gentlemen hoodie
-Obscure Gentlemen t-shirt
-Obscure Gentlemen baseball cap
-12 For A Penny t-shirt
-Plain Zero t-shirt
-You select topics for the 12 For A Penny, Plain Zero, and Obscure
Gentlemen podcasts
-You choose one food item for the Adult Male to eat and review on YouTube

Second Place
Your runner-up tweet turned into an Obscure Gentlemen comic

TIMING
The first topic will be announced on August 21 and your first round
tweet will be due on August 28 by 1:38PM. That’s right, you get one
full week this time. No excuses.

FAQs

Q: Hello, I’m a Bee themed account and think I’m an actual bee. How
can my bee tweet lose to someone who isn’t a bee?

A: Go fuck yourself Bee person.

Q: Will I have a better chance of winning if I already own an OG shirt?

A: This is still a horrible question from a sad and horrible man. The
answer is “NO” because it’s blind, you fool! You tiny, tiny fool from
Southern California.

Q: Do RTs or Favs matter?

A: Again, the judges don’t see them so no they don’t. You could have
been retweeted by Mark Hoppus and all of Blues Traveler and it still
won’t matter.

Q: Can I tweet as many times as I want before submitting?

A: Everyone has different tactics and strategies. Tweet as much or as
little as you want. You only submit one. Just make sure you’re happy
with it. Send one tweet and one tweet only to @theobscuregents via DM.

Q: I’m like the greatest tweeter since that one lady talked about
putting a finger in Kanye’s butthole, how did I lose to a far inferior
tweet?

A: Fam, can I call you fam? Sometimes both tweets are subpar and ones
just moves on or maybe one only works as an inside joke for Twitter.
Just remember, your friends will lie to you and say your tweet is
better than your opponent’s even if it isn’t. That’s what friends do.
Statistically speaking, it’s extremely likely that you will lose. But

there’s always next time.

Q: Can I find out what the score was, how many judges voted for me vs
my opponent?

A: Yes, ask @theobscuregents account and they will tell you. Please
don’t cry or vomit.

Q: I’m going to ask @obscuregent for advice in choosing the tweet I
submit. That’ll give me an edge, right?

A: NOPE!

Q:How do I get into the next contest?

A: DM @theObscuregents and ask them and you’ll be added to the list.

This comic is about the future. The future that is set before us and what greatness awaits. This greatness could come in many forms and many shapes. In reality I’m just filling up some text because I have no idea what to say. I got to draw Arnold naked, so that’s cool I guess. Also don’t watch Valerian, it’s hot garbage that looks pretty. Don’t do it. Trust me on this.

A new Justice League trailer dropped and it was… well, it was still pretty awful but slightly less. There’s been some obvious tweaks from Joss Whedon now that Snyder has left the helm. Not crazy earth shattering changes, but enough to where you can see a slight change of tone and color grading.

Oh, the comic. That’s right. Today’s comic is based off that trailer, particularly the end where Alfred is talking to some mysterious stranger that is TOTALLY NOT SUPERMAN YOU GUYS. Alfred is doing his thing and the viewer is supposed to go, “WHO CAN IT BE?!” Anyway, a pal of mine made a remark about it being the T-Rex in Batman’s cave and I was laughing silly. You see, a stomp happened and some water shook and in the batcave is- well you get the point. So, yeah. Funny joke, Everyone laughs or something. Aquabro jumping through that building looked like PS3 graphics.

I was watching some clip of Cesar Milan kicking a dog that bit him and someone in the comments said they were a dog person. Instantly an image of a half man half dog popped into my head and I wondered how I could work with this. Instead of asking for the Dog Whisperer to be thrown out of Megadeth, I wrote me a comic. I was thinking about those people who can’t be around cats or dogs because they choose a side and how silly that is. Not the choosing a side part, but the not being able to be next to a doggo or kitty. Those people are the real monsters desu.

As for that last panel. Twin Peaks is back and I felt the need to pay tribute in some form. Doggo Cooper or Dale Cooper, whichever you please. We just aren’t gonna talk about Judy!

Glenn Danzig’s new album Black Laden Crown comes out tomorrow/today and I’m pretty excited. His festival Blackest of the Black also makes a return this weekend, but this time bigger and more insane – a spooky haunted house and Wienerschnitzel! So with the wild commotion of all things Danzig, why not a comic featuring him?

This one is inspired by a recent interview where he was asked about being incredibly polarizing. In classic Danzig fashion he brushed off the haters and came very close to saying the classically spicy memeage of “haters gonna hate”. When I shared this with some pals, Yama of 12 for a Penny basically said what you’ll find in the first two panels. So big ups to him and may he be lifted and carried on high.

Anyway, it’s just a silly little joke at a man who is pretty damn legendary but often takes himself a little too seriously. If he drinks blood (or kool-aid) from baby skulls and has his own leather tanning factory, well, good on him. In any case, here’s hoping the new album is good and doesn’t sound like it was recorded in a gas station bathroom.

One thing we ask, although it’s not a mandatory: Please do your best to avoid tired format tweets, like “My super power is…” or “Sorry I wore ____ to your mom’s funeral.” You may get lucky and win, but it’s poor form and you will rot in hell for the sin of laziness.

Let’s run it back, fam! For Round 2, we’re asking you to submit a funny tweet with the opposite stipulation from the previous round: it HAS to take the form of back-and-forth dialogue between (at least) two parties.

Example:
Wife: Hey did you [blah blah blah nag nag]
Husband: Ah durrr! Doop da doo.
Wife: *sips coffee while thinking of dads*
Husband: Karen!! *farts*

See how that tweet was structured? Do that. See how that tweet wasn’t funny and relied on exhausted and offensive tropes about the nature of human relationships? Don’t do that. You’re better than that, fam.

You know the rest: New tweets only. Tweet or draft as much as you want. Then submit only one any time between now and May 3rd at 11:34 AM CT. Once we have both your tweet and your opponent’s tweet, judging will begin and the battle will be announced @theobscuregents account. The winner will be announced as soon as a verdict is reached.

Thank you buddy.

Today’s comic touches upon something that annoys the hell outta me – rude jerks. So look, I too am one of those secular people who don’t have faith or whatever you want to call it. No big deal. What grinds my gears is other atheists who have this smug attitude that is not only off putting, but incredibly and annoyingly rude. If someone says “god bless you” don’t be a jerk, say thanks and move on – maybe even smile. The person was just being nice and there’s no reason to lecture about the finer points of your humanity or lack of belief. I should know, I used to be one of those militant atheists who trolled forums and argued all day with people because reasons. I look at that now and I gotta smh fam. Basically, as long as you’re being cool, then do what you will. Just don’t be a smug prick because of your world view.

Note: Tbh Elvis Aaron Presley is actually the one true based God and this fact will not be debated.

After birthing four happy, healthy, successful contests, we’re going out like a beast: with twice the number of contestants!  From the beginning, we’ve prided ourselves on hosting an equal opportunity tournament, where Twitter accounts of all styles and sizes have a real shot at the championship belt (metaphorically speaking only,  no actual belts will be distributed). Our contest plays out under conventional bracket-style rules. Contestants are initially seeded based on follower count, to do battle on a different theme each round, being judged anonymously (based on the text of their tweets only) by a diverse panel of judges including accomplished writers, artists and humorists from primarily outside the Twitterverse. That means they couldn’t care less about your Favstar ranking, follower count, which Twitter clique you affiliate with, or the percentage of your avi that consists of cleavage. They judge between two tweets on the merits only and on their ability to put a truly unique and funny spin on the topic at hand. The winner moves on to the next round, and so on and so forth, until only one Twitterer remains standing.

 

All contestants will be given the round’s theme and have 24 hours or sometimes more to produce a tweet.

Submit your NEW tweets to @theobscuregents account and @obscuregent will then send you and your opponent’s tweets text-only to a panel of 9 judges.

All contest updates will be sent to the individual contestants by DM and posted on the theObscureGentlemen.com

Winner moves on to the next round.

 

The winner of this contest will receive the following:

 

Champion
-Obscure Gentlemen hoodie
-Obscure Gentlemen t-shirt

-Obscure Gentlemen hat

-12 For A Penny Shirt

-Plain Zero Shirt
-Your tweet turned into a comic
-You select topics for the 12 For a Penny, Plain Zero, and Obscure Gentlemen podcasts.

 

Second Place
-Your tweet turned into a comic


FAQs

Q: Will I have a better chance of winning if I already own an OG shirt?

A: It will actually hurt your chances. No previous winner had owned Obscure Gentlemen apparel beforehand and no one has won twice. If this contest was meant to serve as a way to promote sales of OG apparel, we’re not doing a very good job.

 

Q: Do RTs or Favs matter?

A: NOPE! Not in the least. The judges don’t see and don’t care about the cliquish aspects of Twitter: only the beautiful facets of this platform as a place where some genuinely amazing short form content is generated.

 

Q: Can I tweet as many times as I want before submitting?

A: Yes, you can post as many potential responses to each round’s theme as you like, although you may only submit one of them. You can also choose to hide your drafts from your opponent and only tweet your chosen submission. It’s  up to you. The only tweet that’s judged is the one you DM to @theobscuregents as your official entry.

 

Q: My tweet was sooooo amazing and my opponent’s sucked balls. How did they beat me?

A: Let’s face it: Sometimes, when no one’s there to throw us a sympathy fav or RT,  we’re not as funny or brilliant or charming as we think we are. Sometimes the judges have to choose between two equally disappointing entries and must hash out which one sucks less on the merits. 

 

Q: Can I find out what the score was, how many judges voted for me vs my opponent?

A: Sure, but you may not like the answer.

 

Q: I’m going to ask @obscuregent for advice in choosing the tweet I submit. That’ll give me an edge, right?

A: NOPE! He has chosen poorly many times and has led many contestants to their doom. @obscuregent is not a judge, is barred from participating in judges’ deliberations, and has no particular insight into how the judges will vote. In fact, he kind of sucks at it. Why is he even here? He should be fired.

There just aren’t enough math jokes going around! Why should the right halves of our brains get all the fun? This week’s comic is a layered joke, and you gotta know a few things to get it:

1) In a right triangle, the tangent is calculated by dividing the triangle’s sine over its cosine.
2) A good, chiseled tan is something the writer of this comic could only have if he made it in a lab.
3) Some calculators have a function that finds a figure’s tangent. This button is labeled ‘TAN.’

There you have it! If you’ve read this far, you probably got a lot less out of the joke. Sorry for that, old horse! Anyway, it’s cool to finally get my words featured directly in a note-to-readers format on this site! I hope to see and hear more of all of you out there, and I hope you don’t get tired of hearing and seeing more of me! Exclamation points!!!

Last week I watched a horror movie and the Ghost/Monster controlled electronics way to well. So there it is, the origin of this comic. Also note that Aaron updated our characters to resemble our current states better. He now has a shaved head and goatee while I now have my shitty haircut.

This week’s comic comes from Michael Olivier (Ben 10 writer), who I have been recently working alongside. Michael is quite the fan of the Obscure Gentlemen and a funny guy to boot, so we’ve let him take a stab at the Gents in the best way possible – his own strip. We think you’ll be happy with the dating tip he’s dropped. Here’s to more possible collaborations and comics from the man. You can find him over at michaelfromamerica on Instagram.

This is it, fam. As the millenials say, this is for all the molasses in Aunt Merle’s barn. And your final tweet topic is a doozy.

Al Roker.

Write any new tweet using the iconic TV personality best known as the weatherman on the Today Show. Tweet about his work, his stunning weight loss, his still-enormous head, or just write a non sequitur that somehow happens to involve him. Just make sure it makes more sense than the losing tweet below from our first round.

“If there is a just god, he’ll let me sleep tonight without hearing my elderly neighbors scream about how Al Roker gave them nightmares again.”

Your deadline is 2/17 1:38pm CT.

Good luck and have fun fiends.

Today we changed our usually scheduled comic with a comic done in memorium. A few weeks ago we lost John Vavra aka @john_vavra to a drug overdose. Now I had only spoken to this man a few times on Twitter, but he was a kind and funny man. He was set to compete in the Obscure For A Penny Zero twitter tournament in February and would have probably had made it to the finals. His humor can be found on his Twitter time line for those of you who want to see one of the many reasons as to why he will be missed. Today we ask that you laugh in his honor.

Tweet the comic is based on:

ME: (wishing on shooting star) i wish my cat could talk

*next day*

CAT: life is a prison of despair

Me: haha and i love YOU Meoward Hughes

Carrie Fisher (1956-2016) http://theobscuregentlemen.com/2016/12/27/carrie-fisher-1956-2016/ http://theobscuregentlemen.com/2016/12/27/carrie-fisher-1956-2016/#respond Tue, 27 Dec 2016 23:23:06 +0000 http://theobscuregentlemen.com/?p=4364 ↓ Read the rest of this entry...]]>

Carrie Fisher,  Like many icons before her, is now gone. While she did have a wide ranging list of credits, the role she will forever be remembered for is Princess Leia in the Star Wars Saga.

Before I jump into Star Wars love and go on about how important her character is, I think a few things need to be stressed. Carrie Fisher had a hard life. Not in terms of material wealth and most things we think of. No, her struggles came from mental illness and the troubles that come with it. Over the decades she used drugs as an escape as she battled bi-polar and eating disorders. She lived in a personal hell day in and day out. Yet, she never stopped performing. She never stopped being kind to the fans, and never forgot how fortunate she was coming up as the daughter of two Hollywood Icons. Despite that, she battled both addiction and mental illness. In recent years she finally started to recover, or at least be in a place where she found some comfort. She reprised her role as Leia and was getting the respect she always deserved. What’s more she began to become an advocate for mental health and reached out to many in need of help. She dispelled the notion that sufferers aren’t people, proving that their lives have meaning and value. At the same time she was very outspoken about Hollywood’s tendency to turn away from women over 40 and shrink the types of roles they can play. Mental health, age discrimination, and body positivity – these are important things she brought attention to and they must not be forgotten. With everything she went through and struggled with, she managed to stay as a beacon of hope for the hopeless.

The same can be said of her role in Star Wars. She was a Princess who showed many young children that even women can fight. She made it clear that women can lead and give orders. In the original trilogy she was a hero in her own right, not just some background character. Carrie Fisher stood out in a genre dominated by mostly men and it can be argued that Princess Leia paved the way for other strong female protagonists in film. She inspired young girls in an era where these things were simply overlooked. More recently, in her final role, she returned to the character of Leia. This time she was the leader of the resistance and without any question the matriarch of Star Wars.

Her legacy has been cemented and the hope and joy she brings to many will never be diminished. Whatever the future brings for Star Wars, she will always have a place and be part of that magic that made us all yearn for a Galaxy Far, Far, Away. Carrie Fisher wasn’t perfect and even she’d admit that first. But she was a legend and to some a hero. For all that she’s done in her life one thing is clear – the force will be with her… always.

– Aaron A. Alvarez

Today’s comic is a tweet we turned into a comic. Marta, AKA @Poutymcgee was generous and donated money to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. Go over to her twitter account today and check out her Twitter timeline.

Original Tweets:

Zombie Apocalypse – Day 467: The new group told me to leave because I refused to go on a recon mission with Sue due to her “shitty perm”.

Zombie Apocalypse Day 470: Jared is pissed at me for using his dead brothers machete to chop up his bed for fire wood.

Zombie Apocalypse Day 472: We all went looting today. I hit the jackpot with a magnum of wine. The group are angry as I’m drunk. Squares.

Zombie Apocalypse Day 475: I used all the bottled water to fill up the kiddie pool. In hindsight it probably wasn’t my best idea so far.

Zombie Apocalypse Day 494: The new girl keeps flirting with Gavin so I threw all her insulin over the fence. That should even things out.

The holiday’s are a busy time and with that onslaught of shopping, family gatherings, and excitement, sometimes comes a bump in the road. Dear readers, what am I talking about? What sort of cruel twist of winter madness could have struck? I have the stomach flu. Because of this sudden attack of illness the comic has been put off… kinda. Because we are Gents of our word, we give you a one panel comic that tells the tale all too well. Fear not, next week I, the faithful artist will be back in full form with that comic goodness you love so much and if everything works out another episode of the podcast. Until then, take care and don’t become sick like I did. Excuse me, I gotta visit a guy named John now.

Today’s comic is another tweet we turned into a comic. This time we turned the great Stabbatha Christy AKA @LoveNLunchmeat over on Twitter. Christy was generous and donated money to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. Go over to her twitter account today and read some of the best tweets on the internet. Witty tweets about cake and murder.

Original Tweet: [basement, chained to an old pipe] *glancing around at the grey cinderblocks* Ugh, this serial killer is just awful at interior decorating

In the immortal words of Manowar, look how far you’ve come now baby.
After 64 fierce and bloody matchups across 5 rounds of voting, you’re in the championship. There’s only one topic left. And here it is.

Urban legends. You know how this works: Write a new topic, having something to do with the topic at hand. And if you made it this far only to lose now, it would probably be the most embarrassing thing that ever happens to you in your life. Godspeed.

New tweet due by 10/14 1:38 p.m. PT.
GOOD LUCK!
