Hi, I’m Meathead. It’s the weekend again, as evidenced by the fact that I’m not at that horrible place where I go to feel my spirit slowly strangled to death for forty excruciating hours per week (just kidding work is awesome). It also means that it’s time for another Year Book Weekend Wrap-Up™! Yay! Okay, let’s get this shit over with.
Day #9: James Gandolfini
Believe it or not, this is supposed to be James Gandolfini, a.k.a Tony Soprano from The Sopranos. It didn’t quite turn out as planned. I kind of like the way it looks in and of itself, but as for its resemblance to its intended subject… eh. Oh well, they can’t all be masterpieces. Since my self-imposed rules won’t let me start over, I eventually just said “fuck it” and went all-out weird.
Day #10: Jesse Ventura
This one here, also not quite what I was hoping for. Maybe I just had a case of the Mondays. Yeah, that’s it. Again, I’m not really sure exactly where it all went wrong, but I eventually decided to set him on fire and plant a flag on top of his head for no readily available reason.
Day #11: John Wayne
It was really starting to feel like “Tough Guy Week” when I picked this dude’s name out of the box. This one definitely isn’t my favorite so far, but I think it’s a step up from the previous two.
Day #12: Fergie
Fergie, a.k.a. Stacy Ferguson, a.k.a. the troll from the Black Eyed Peas, a.k.a. everything that is wrong with pop music in the 21st century. Next.
Day #13: Robert Gibbs
For those of you who know absolutely nothing about American politics, a bunch of rich guys in a smoke-filled room regularly picks a person for us to blame when everything goes wrong. This person is called the “President.” Our current President is Barack Obama. Because President Obama doesn’t have time in his busy schedule to talk to reporters every day and try to convince them that everything isn’t totally fucked, he has someone to do this for him, known as a “Press Secretary.” The current Press Secretary (until he resigns in a couple of weeks) is Robert Gibbs. He has a large head.
Day #14: Bill O’Reilly
Once upon a time, Bill “Fuck It, We’ll Do It Live” O’Reilly used to be the biggest, most obnoxious windbag on Fox News. Now, thanks to some of their more recently hired employees, he actually seems almost like a calm, rational human being in comparison.
Day #15: Tom Jenkinson, a.k.a. Squarepusher
No, this isn’t Brian Peppers. If you’re not familiar with Squarepusher, he’s an English gentleman who makes really complicated electronic songs that are absolutely 100% guaranteed to bum the shit out of everyone if you play them at a party. His music is distributed by Warp Records as well as Aphex Twin’s Rephlex label, and even Nothing Records back when they were still around.
And that concludes this week’s round of somewhat-acceptable drawings. You can follow my updates daily on Twitter and Tumblr if you absolutely cannot possibly wait until next weekend. You may now resume reading about Beady Eye or whatever.
