If it’s debatable, we debate it. If it’s little-known, we reference it. However absurd, inane or trivial, we treat it with the care and precision of surgeons.

So, this comic is relatively straight forward. I heard a Kaiser Permanente ad bragging (yes, I said “bragging”) about how they’ve made great strides and reduced the mortality rates of people. I heard this ad a lot, and when I got finished wishing they’d just get off their high horse, I wondered how different the statement would be if it were the immortality rate they were bragging about. Voila! Instant comic. I floated the idea around the guys whilst eating at a Denny’s and it was suggested that it would be interesting if the concept were done in the style of The Farside. So there’s your breakdown of today’s comic. And Aaron really nailed that Gary Larson style! You’re welcome.

Also, I’ve been busy working with Aaron, Nick, and new gentlemen, Alex, to get our podcast “Plain Zero” off the ground. That is why I’ve been away for so long. I highly recommend you check it out (http://plainzero.libsyn.com/) if you haven’t already. And who else is crazy pumped for Guardian’s Of The Galaxy? Because I cannot wait for August 1st.

P.S. I know that technically all immortals aren’t called Highlanders, just like all vampires aren’t Draculas.

can i play with madness

I hate writing these damn blogs. I’m almost certain nobody reads them so here are the lyrics to a Megadeth song.

Welcome to our fortress tall
Take some time to show you around
Impossible to break these walls
For you see the steel is much too strong
Computer banks to rule the world
Instruments to sight the stars

Possibly I’ve seen to much
Hangar 18 I know too much

Foreign life forms inventory
Suspended state of cryogenics
Selective amnesia’s the story
Believed foretold but who’d suspect?
Military intelligence
Two words combined that can’t make sense

Possibly I’ve seen to much
Hangar 18 I know too much

ours is the fury

So this is going to be my first comic on here, and since Game of Thrones just wrapped up its fourth season, I figured it would only be appropriate to honor the one true rightful king of Westeros, the King in the Narrow Sea, Stannis Baratheon.

I’ve been a Stannis fan ever since I saw him lead his men into the Blackwater, all while Joffrey stayed behind to cower. He’s a guy that’s always had his morals and principles, and has to deal with breaking some of these principles in order to get what he wants what’s rightfully his. He’s been dealt a shit hand (not Davos) his whole life, but now his time has come, and he’s going to show the world why he’s the god damn rightful king of Westeros. Plus, when push comes to shove, he’s a total badass.

I’m very excited to be a part of The Obscure Gentlemen, and I hope to keep bringing fun stuff for you guys in the future.

-Alex Mitchell

People, including the Japanese have been saying the new Godzilla is fat. Is he really though? Anyone who has seen the Japanese Godzilla movies, be it the Showa, Heisei or Millennium era’s, knows that the King of All Monsters has always had a little junk in the trunk. In any case, people are going to over react and shout NOT MUH GODZILLA, while I watch a bit of the old fashioned Kaiju beat down I know and love.
SKREEEEEE-ONK!!!!!!!
