A higher power

RYAN: My name is Ryan, and I am an alcoholic. NOT-RYAN: What the HELL? We have to give our NAMES!? You lied to me, sign! You LIED to me!
I just found this while tidying up. It doesn't look familiar, but I deduce that I drew it just over two years ago. (Yeah, the place was kind of overdue a tidy.)

In the generic dark room, with the kitchen knife

Now let's not be hasty here. Either one of us could be the murderer.
I'm torn. Digital text seems so impersonal, but then handwriting it takes ages and is still barely legible, tablet or no tablet.

The arbiter of taste

FRIEND: Hey Jim! Have you seen this awesome [comedy/game/film]? It's really good, you should consider checking it out. JIM: Yeeeeahhh... if it was THAT good, though, don't you think I'd have known about it already, and be telling YOU about it?
"Hey Jim, based on in-depth knowledge of your favourite kinds of things, this is exactly the sort of thing you would like!"

How about this: as punishment for your presumption, I pre-emptively hate the thing you are recommending, forever.

I am a great friend to have.

Flog the dead donkey

(London, Monday) JIM: ...and then I'll have the beefburger... WAITRESS: We don't have any today. Do you want chicken burger? (Brighton, Wednesday) JIM: ...and for the main could I have the beefburger, please? WAITRESS: I'm afraid we're currently out of burgers. We also don't have any lasagne. Would you care to select another main course? JIM'S BRAIN: Hm! Two branches in a row. Quite an inconvenient coincidence. (Later) Okay seriously, how has that taken me until *now* to figure out?
The great thing about topical humour is the way it is rendered all but meaningless by the passage of only a few months' time.

Wait, that's not great at all. I have got my adjectives in a muddle yet again.

Postal modernism

This must be that 'survivor's guilt' I've heard about...
I got a fancified drawing tablet! The above cartoon is entirely digitally created, much like the film "Polar Express". See how much clearer and more legible it is than the scanned stuff... uh...

Look, I'll practice, okay?
