I’m really starting to like these Maintenance updates primarily because I don’t get to write much creative writing anymore because between school and writing about Youtube videos I found, there isn’t much room for creative flair.  But it turns out I can dish out some personality through these updates.  So instead of the usual straightforward talk as seen in the eighty word descriptions that usually circulate this site, there’s a little bit of sarcasm and wit.  I’m sure as I keep doing these, they’ll get more and more outrageous.  But enough about that, let’s get to the exciting news.

Maintenance Update on a Sunday?  Where’s my Weekly Preview?

I’ve decided to roll a Maintenance update every week by combining it with the Weekly Preview.  So on Sundays, you’ll have an update with everything we’re doing here at Banana Scoop as well as a a look at what we’re cooking up this week.  Granted, the combination of the two means the both will lose some content than they usually would have alone [shorter updates and smaller previews], but combined, I think we’re killing two birds with one stone.  And besides, that just means I can write Tuesday articles again!

Read On Below for More News!

If there’s anything Weekend Funnies have taught me, is that not everyone has the same sense of humor.  But the internet is a generally a collection of everyone and the sheer compilation of the wit and humor that each individual contributes essentially represents the most broadest and generalist appeals to mankind.  So when I choose the 24 images for each Weekend Funny, I know the reason I think it’s funny will be at least funny to some percentage of the world.  And even if the it’s the smallest 1%, 1% of 7 billion is still 700 million.  So I apologize if you’re offended, disgusted, or upset.  Truth be told, if you can’t handle these 24 images, you likely shouldn’t be on the internet anyways.  So stop worrying about racism, sexism, and other means of being upset.  Just keep scrolling, and remember: no one’s looking, it’s okay to smile at something someone would frown upon.

Sadly, this is the last Universidaze comic I’ll publish in a long time.  As school looms closer and closer, I know I need to give up some of the responsibilities I’ve given myself when it comes to this blog.  And after evaluating some of the cost/profit aspects of this blog, Universidaze simply takes too much time for it to be worth it.  If I were a free lance artist who could dedicate his one post a week to Universidaze, it would be doable.  But balancing the 2-4 hour drawing process with 24 other articles a week is simply going to make this blog bleed.

The adventures of Chad and Miles seem to be over for now.  It’s such a shame, considering I’ve grown very fond of the two of them and I feel as though I could’ve done so much more.  The Universidaze tab will remain here for all those who wish to go back and read some of the older comics.  I plan on playing around with the hyperlinks and making the page much nicer as a final send off.  But who knows, maybe they’ll survive the crash.  Maybe they’ll make a comeback.  We can only wish and dream.

Maintenance Alert!  Time to learn what the scoop is on Banana Scoop.  It’s a relatively light week this week.  This newsletter primarily talks about school coming soon and how things will change in response to that.  Read on below for all the latest news with us.

School Incoming Means Less Banana Scoop

Truth be told, I’m both excited and distraught that school is starting soon.  I get to move back out of my parent’s house, live autonomously for a year, be in the company of other intellectuals, watch a ton of movies and television, party every once in a while, etc..  But there’s one drawback…it’s fcking school.  Studying, studying, studying is the other end of the spectrum.  Huffington Post just recently labeled Georgia Tech as the 24th best University in the World and while I’m definitely proud of that, it entails how competitive the school must be to keep that ranking.

So when all the studying comes around, I’ll likely have less time to do Banana Scoop which means there will be a break or two every couple of months during the hard test weeks.  I’ll do my best to stay on top of things, but you know how things catch up.  I do have a solution or two in mind…which brings me to my next point.

This website is no stranger to awesome Game of Thrones parodies.  This is a video that is a sequel to a popular video from College Humor that rendered Game of Thrones season 1 into a 8-bit RPG game.  I had posted the video before and can be rewatched at the bottom of this page.  Like the first video, it makes fun of some of the absurdities of the season but drives in some rather good point in terms of what should’ve been represented versus what was.  You’ll have to watch to see for yourself, but there are some NSFW stuff, so be careful.

Jon Arnbuckle.  We know him as the goofy, loveless, and unfortunate owner of Garfield and Odie.  Most of the time, Jon has witiful banter with his cat Garfield that has so famously been immortalized by Jim Davis.  But artist Dan Walsh has done something incredible by removing his usual partner in crime of the comics, Garfield, from the panels.  What we have left is a look into who Jon really is.  By removing Garfield, it appears that Jon Arnbuckle is a lonely man in critical need of attention.  His speech bubbles left untouched, most of the time Jon looks as though he’s talking to himself or validating himself.  It surprisingly works incredibly well and produces some hilarious situations.  I’ve compiled some of my favorites below, but definitely visit GarfieldMinusGarfield.net for the full website.

I’ve been learning a lot in the past 2 days.  What we have above is a sleak combination of Illustrator and Photoshop.  It’s still in the testing phase, so this comic is pretty half assed in terms of professionalism [like Chad said].  But still, I’m getting used to it and I can’t wait to reveal to you guys what I’ve been working on for my Sunday Sketch….It’s definitely awesome.  In the meantime, read more Universidaze here!

College Humor has created one of the greatest web series out there, titled project “Badman”.  This web series is essentially a parody of how ridiculous Batman can be.  Batman is portrayed as an idiot in this series.  It’s almost indescribable how awesome this is.  There is definite comic gold in making fun of the way Batman speaks, and putting him in compromising situations is even better.  Check out the entire playlist here.

I WAS TOO FCKING BUSY WATCHING THE DARK KNIGHT RISES TO WRITE FRIDAY’S ARTICLE, SO I REPLACED IT WITH THIS PREDONE WEEKEND FUNNIES.

I REGRET NOTHING.

There was an original post about Minecraft that was supposed to be published this week, but we’re going to move that to next.  I’m sure you all won’t mind.

So here’s your 24 hilarious images from around the internet.

Last Tuesday, I gave a maintenance update regarding the state of the blog and what we have in store, and I kinda felt as though we should do that every week!  I like keeping you guys updated with how I’m doing and some of the personal feelings I have towards this blog sometimes.  I’d like for you guys to think that this blog is more than just me posting a lot of cool stuff I find, and that it’s about discussing/geeking out about how much I love popular culture.  Reaching out to you guys almost seems meta.  So like many other scheduled events on this blog, Tuesday Maintenance Letters will try to be a thing these days.  There’s always something I want to be doing for this blog, so I think sharing with you guys what I do will not only tighten our cyber bond, but also make you notice all the effort I put into things that aren’t necessarily obvious XD.

List of Scheduled Events

Sunday
Weekly Preview – A preview of the more exciting articles that will be posted on Banana Scoop in the upcoming week
Sunday Sketch – Amateur drawings that I create and upload to share with you all

Monday
____ Review – All good television is premiered on Sunday [Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Dexter, etc.], so it’s only natural that I post reviews on them the following day

Tuesday
Maintenance Newsletter – A post regarding what’s new with Banana Scoop in the format area as well as what’s to come

Wednesday
Universidaze – A webcomic created by me that features the [mostly] fictional lives of two college kids

Saturday
Saturday Reblog – Anyone who posts a comment throughout the week gets put into a pool where I choose a lucky winner to get reblogged by us!
Weekend Funnies – 24 hilarious images collected from the deep corners of the interwebs.

Read on below about what’s new with our blog as of recently.

Editors Note: Why is it on Friday?  Because I couldn’t finish Friday’s article.  It’s a doozey.  A 2000 word plus article.  I’ll have it published by Saturday!  Thanks for bearing with me guys.

The changes keep coming here at Banana Scoop.  I’m trying to stay on top of things more than ever now a days.  It seems like we’re gathering much of the strength we haven’t had in a while, and I’m hoping that’s a good thing.  By no means is that a reason to stop.  I’m using the momentum we’re gaining as a fuel.  I’m finding all my old contacts of blog circles and updating my information to get the Scoop out there as much as possible.  Besides these updates,  there are a couple of announcements I’d like to mention.  Read below for some of the highlights and the pertaining details.

The Opening of the Live Discussion Page

The Live Discussion Page, located at the top, is a place where casual conversation about ANYTHING can happen.  I’ll gladly partake in the conversation and I hope you will partake in any other threads we have going on.  Movies, TV, love lives, anything you wanna get off our chest to the internet world is in your grasp.  Wordpress only allows 10 indentations per post, so if discussions get wildy, just create a new thread for us to go off of.  I’ve already started if off by asking what you guys are watching on television this summer.  Go here now and get involved!

I’ve soon learned that Weekend Funnies are a temporary vacation from you real life, as you get stuck in a world where life doesn’t suck so much.  A world where anonymity is power that allows you to be racist, sexist, judgmental, or all of the above for a few quick minutes and then you can return to whoever you were before.  So take this time and enjoy these 24 images are your escape from your likely hellish life.  And if your offended with one image, always remember that if EVERYONE finds it funny, it probably truly isn’t.
