October Digital Sketch (Patreon Exclusive)

Kevin Smith Interview with Megan Phelps-Roper

It's not often that something like this catches my eye. But Kevin Smith recently conducted an interview with Megan Phelps-Roper. She is one of the daughters that left Westboro Baptist Church. The story she tells is profoundly moving. I highly recommend everyone listen to it. Link

Steve and Tim

I got a request to write. So, I wrote. _________________________________________________________________________________ “Hey there, you sexy bitch!” “You can’t say that.” “Why not? I thought it always needed to start with an attention grabber.” “It does, but not like that. They asked for a story. It’s unlikely they’ll react kindly to being called a bitch right off the bat.”

App of the Week: TweetDeck

Image
TweetDeck Publisher: Twitter Platform: PC, iOS Price: Free! So, this isn't really an app. Not in the traditional sense. There's no official app available in either the iOS or Android stores. Instead, there's only the website. But this website kicks all kinds of ass. Especially if you're the type of masochist that finds themselves managing multiple Twitter accounts. The idea of TweetDeck is to manage multiple Twitter accounts from one easy-to-use interface without the need for logging in and out of said accounts. So, in my case, I can track my personal account, a show account, and the network account. What's really nice is that I don't have to post a tweet from one account and then retweet it across the other two. Instead, I can check all three accounts and send the same tweet with one click.

The Burger Gourmet: Lucy's #7 Cheddar, Bacon, BBQ Burger

Image
Lucy's #7 Location: Beloit, WI Ingredients: Cheddar cheese, bacon, fried onions, BBQ sauce Alright kids, you know the drill by now. New restaurant equals a burger. Though, it kind of makes it super easy when the new place is known as a burger joint. Lucy's is not the kind of place that I would expect to find in Beloit, but then again, I'm not sure what is in Beloit. I've only traveled there for work meetings. So, when a farmer's market turns into a tasty burger, my attention is grabbed. Lucy's is a retro inspired, high class without the high price, burger joint. Complete with pin ups. It's kind of amazing.

App of the Week: Bluk

Image
Bluk Publisher: Pixel Ape Platform: Android, iOS Price: Free! Okay. So, I may have a problem. It seems that the large majority of games that catch my attention on the mobile platforms seem to revolve around simplistic pixel art. The game could play like an absolute wreck and I would be none the wiser, because I'm enamored with the pretty visuals. So, here, have another one. Bluk is easy enough to get into, but gets fairly difficult the further one gets into it. Using catapult physics, the objective is to hurl the little cube from tower to tower. Pull back with a finger to set the arc and strength, then release. If done correctly, the little cube will land delicately on top of the tower. Rinse and repeat until the end of the level. The music is soothing and easy to enter a trance as the levels fly by. As with any free-to-play game, there are items and abilities available for purchase. If you're a fan of pixel art and like puzzles, Bluk may be for you.

App of the Week: Baikoh

Image
Baikoh Publisher: Mum Not Proud Platform: Android, iOS Price: Free! Word games. Insults. A simplistic theme. Tell me, Baikoh, were you created just for me? The premise is simple. Letter tiles fall from the top of the screen and will being to fill it up. Tap letters to spell words and clear the board. If the letter pile reaches the top of the screen, it's game over. But, if that were all there was, it would be pretty boring. And Baikoh is not boring. It likes to punish players who misspell. It's a game that actively wants the player to lose. Different hampering abilities and tiles will fall along with the letters, that can freeze the board, block progress, and otherwise make the player's life a living hell. To help the player along their journey, there are power ups to collect and use in each match, so it's not an entirely unfair fight. Not entirely. As with most of the apps I recommend, Baikoh is totally free. If you like word games, give it a whirl.

App of the Week: Offline Survival Manual

Image
Offline Survival Manual Publisher: Iigi Platform: Android Price: Free! Let's face it. At some point in life, all of us have thought about the remote chance of being dumped in the middle of nowhere. Lost, alone, and left to fend for ourselves. What would you do? I certainly have no idea. I can only imagine there would be a lot of crying. Well, if you have an Android device, and adequate prep time, or hopefully a full battery, the Offline Survival Manual may be just the trick. This app is packed full of survival-y goodness. Things like building shelter, providing basic first aid, and even elements of psychology can be found within! Now, it may all be good, or it could ultimately lead to certain death. I'm not a survival expert. Either way, it provides an interesting read. And since it's free, what's there to lose? Certainly not your life, right?

App of the Week: YouTube Kids

Image
YouTube Kids Publisher: Google Platform: Android, iOS Price: Free! What did we do before the age of the Internet and television when it came to getting the kids out of our hair for a few hours? Was there ever a time when children played outside or ran off with friends to have adventures? Is it just me or are the little buggers born with touch-enabled devices attached to their little grabbers? Well, I suppose it doesn't much matter. It's the way of the future! Kids and tablets! Kids and phones! Kids and all the abhorrent things the Internet has to offer. I'll be the first to admit that my YouTube account curates some fairly screwy videos. As such, I wasn't inclined to let my toddler use it to watch videos of monster trucks, trains, and nursery rhymes. After all, who knows what will pop up on the auto play? On the flip side of that, going into YouTube without any account can be just as dangerous due to what is trending. As such, when it came time to binge watch

App of the Week: Authentic Weather

Image
Authentic Weather Publisher: House of van Schneider Platform: Android, iOS Price: Free! Since getting a smart phone, I've found the one thing I'm always on the hunt for is a decent weather app. I've tried so many that I've lost count and they all fall short in one way or another. Either they're too cluttered with information or they lack basic information or there are intrusive ads or the layout is just awful. It's too much. Just tell me the fucking weather and look good while you do it. Well, hello Authentic Weather. I didn't see you over there. AW is the most straight forward and sassy weather app I've had the pleasure of using. After finding your location, AW will give you a summary of the weather. As I write this, it says "It's fucking cloudy. You can look outside to get more information." It's very astute. Pulling down from the top gives a little more info about the forecast in addition to the temperature. It will displa

App of the Week: Retro Shooting

Image
Retro Shooting Developer: Livezen Corp. Platform: Android, iOS Price: Free! Loyal readers will know that I'm terribly torn on mobile gaming. I greatly enjoy playing games, but there is such a distinct lack of quality games available for phones and tablets. If something becomes mildly popular, there are so many knock-offs and shovelware created, it creates bloat in the marketplace. For the most part, I've given up on mobile gaming. I'd much rather use my phone or tablet to be productive (crap, I think I'm turning into an adult). That being said, every now and then, a gem comes along.

SketchBook Developer: AutoDesk Platform: Android, iOS Price: Free! Art is very important to me, despite me being a terrible artist. I had talent and squandered it. I grew up wanting to draw comics for a living. But instead of actually studying and developing my skills, I stalled out. Fast forward 10 years and I'm still floundering. But now, I flounder for different reasons. The world has jumped to digital art and let me tell you, drawing with a tablet instead of pencil and paper is a dramatic disconnect.

Twitch Developer: Twitch Interactive, Inc. Platform: Android, iOS Price: Free! There's no denying the huge impact that Twitch has made in the lives of gamers.

Tap Hero Developer: Applicatura Platform: Android, iOS Price: Free! I've expressed my disdain for idle clickers in the past. For the most part, they seem pointless to me.
