obsessed.: Daily Dishonesty, fantasy football drafts and "Sowing Season"


Before we jump into today's post—I can't believe none of you called me on yesterday's mistake. I got the Revieu portion of the post ... but there was no Haiku! Colt realized it last night, so I added one in as soon as I could. What a goober, amirite?

Now, onto today's business.

I ran across Daily Dishonesty recently and just can't get enough. I love the cheeky humor of these illustrations, and some of them are so spot-on, it's scary.


The project is the brainchild (and the illustrations the creation of) graphic designer Lauren Hom, who does some really amazing work outside of Daily Dishonesty as well. (You can see more on her website.)

And this week, from the Mister:

It's nearly that time of year, friends, when the leaves start changing, the air starts cooling (hahaha, wishful thinking), and the football fans once again start making their choices for the players who will lead them to a fantasy championship.


Last year, Colt took part in four leagues, and this year he's planning on taking part in three. ("Or four ..." he says. He's a bit of a nut for statistics.) Football season is one of Colt's favorite times of year, and the ability to "play along" as the teams go head to head makes it even better.

And from TGG:

Wes's interest in the band Brand New has grown over the years, from their first album, Your Favorite Weapon, which was pretty standard emo pop-punk with atypically clever lyrics, to their third album, The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me, which was was the band's biggest musical change and Wes' favorite. The first song on the album can be heard below. (Note of warning from TGG: "This song starts out really quiet, but it kicks in loud at the minute mark.")



It's been four years since Brand New's last album, but their drummer mentioned recently that they're working on some new music, which Wes finds very exciting.

  1. I'm still of the opinion that Fantasy Football would be better if there were more Wizards involved.

  3. Bwahaha I totally missed that yesterday xD I was just so excited to comment I couldn't contain myself.

    I still don't know what I'm doing in my fantasy hockey league. Well, I do, but usually I forget to log on and make trades and wake up one morning to a whole team who's on the IR ><;

  4. So much love for Brand New...that's one of my favourite tracks on that album. Also, I think Daily Dishonesty is frighteningly accurate!!

  6. If I'm going to be home for the evening, I put mine on too. Why bother with grown-up-people pants if you don't have to?

    I enjoy playing, but I'm sure I didn't really do it correctly most of the time.
