…el drama del desencantado que se arrojó a la calle desde el décimo piso, y a medida que caía iba viendo a través de las ventanas la intimidad de sus vecinos, las pequeñas tragedias domésticas, los amores furtivos, los breves instantes de felicidad, cuyas noticias no habían llegado nunca hasta la escalera común, de modo que en el instante de reventarse contra el pavimento de la calle había cambiado por completo su concepción del mundo, y había llegado a la conclusión de que aquella vida que abandonaba para siempre por la puerta falsa valía la pena de ser vivida.

Gabriel García Márquez

This is a short comic I did with this little tale by García Márquez, “the drama of the disillusioned. I didn’t want to do it too literal, so I experimented a bit.

Here is how the internship scam works. It’s not about a “skills” gap. It’s about a morality gap.

1) Make higher education worthless by redefining “skill” as a specific corporate contribution. Tell young people they have no skills.

2) With “skill” irrelevant, require experience. Make internship sole path to experience. Make internships unpaid, locking out all but rich.

3) End on the job training for entry level jobs. Educated told skills are irrelevant. Uneducated told they have no way to obtain skills.

4) As wealthy progress on professional career path, middle and lower class youth take service jobs to pay off massive educational debt.

5) Make these part-time jobs not “count” on resume. Hire on prestige, not skill or education. Punish those who need to work to survive.

6) Punish young people who never found any kind of work the hardest. Make them untouchables — unhireable.

7) Tell wealthy people they are “privileged” to be working 40 hrs/week for free. Don’t tell them what kind of “privileged” it is.

8) Make status quo commentary written by unpaid interns or people hiring unpaid interns. They will tell you it’s your fault.

9) Young people, it is not your fault. Speak out. Fight back. Bankrupt the prestige economy.

this comes from the top rope.

I pretty much hit reblog on this after point 1 alone.

O. dear. Christian Grey as a cake. Well made though, isn’t?

I’m not sure whether to laugh or scream.  I think I’ll go with screaming.



WHY ARE PEOPLE DETERMINED TO RUIN CAKE?!

You can’t do this with pie.  Just sayin’.

Well, you CAN, as long as you establish clear boundaries and y’know agree on a safeword.

Some time last year, Kyle Starks (robotmountain) and I had a bet, the stakes of which were that if I won, he would draw a Doom Patrol comic, and if I lost, I would write a story of his choosing.

Long story short, we both kind of won and lost, so the compromise is that I would write a Doom Patrol comic that he drew.

This is that comic. Please share it if you like it.

<3,

Benito

My next goal is to work with these guys. I love ‘em.

👏👏👏

Perfect. “Then there’s Steve. He sucks real bad.” is the best thing.

The recipe is Italian Sausage Rigatoni with Balsamic Onions &amp; Cherry Tomatoes – it comes from Gene Bauer’sFarm Sanctuary site and was submitted by the fine folks (hi, Jennifer!) over at Field *yum!* Roast. It’s super easy to make and we’ll definitely be unleashing it on another unsuspecting audience as soon as we get the chance.
4 sliced Field Roast Italian Sausages1 lb uncooked rigatoni pasta (we used penne)1 thin sliced Sweet Yellow onion2 cloves minced garlic1 pint halved Cherry tomatoes1 cup pitted &amp; halved Kalamata olives1/2 cup olive oilParsleySalt and pepper
Cook pasta as directed on the package, add salt when water comes to a boil. Using a non stick skillet heat 1/2 of olive oil on medium high heat. Add sliced onions, cook until they begin to turn golden. Add garlic then add balsamic vinegar and allow to reduce 5-10 mins. Remove onions and add remaining oil to pan. Add sausage and brown on both sides. Add onion mixture back into the pan, stirring until well coated. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients, toss with pasta and serve. Turn suddenly to your guests and freak ‘em out by *$&amp;#%ing up yer face. Oops, wrong directions.
