Gavin McInnes

First I have to apologize that this doesn’t look very much like the person it’s supposed to be. I’m not a classical illustrator who can crank out spitting image likenesses of people easily. Sometimes I can brute force my way to something close with enough hacking at it – but not my usual forte.

… But my lack of skills aside, this illustration is my humble homage to the legendary, Gavin McInnes.

I could write paragraphs on the genius, accomplishments and hilarity of this man. But since I don’t have that kind of time I have to unfairly, brutishly sum him up in ugly bullet points:

Like Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin is originally from another country (Canada) but lives in the US now and fights for America’s future by pushing back against social and political nonsense (normally coming from the regressive left). In my opinion he is brilliant, hillarious and a true American hero and I “like him more than a friend.”

I’m proud of your boy, Gavin.

A bit he does on his CompoundMedia.com show where he talks about books while he cooks by the fire … cracks me up every time.

I finally got an (IS77) audio input port installed on my car after the tape deck and the CD player both died (and the dealer said it would cost ~$700 to replace). This is just a post to document the various moving parts that made it all work … and a chance to make a cool logo graphic.

Zelda 3DS

I just finished the 3DS title “The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds” tonight. While it was a 30% easier than all previous Zelda games I’ve played it was a great adventure and honestly I appreciated the lower difficulty and it’s focus on just being a fun game to play. The way they let players rent/buy any item they wanted whenever they wanted was also a welcome change compared to the age-old method of doling out 1 item per dungeon.

As always the gameplay, music, story and characters were all top notch (IMHO) – I would expect nothing less from the Zelda team. Thanks guys – cant wait for the Wii U Zelda game!

Here’s the IGN review of the game:
