World's Best Boss

      I once heard Steve Carrell say early on in the run of The Office that if you don't know a Michael Scott, then you probably ARE a Michael Scott. Being a 'Michael Scott' was implied as a negative since, during the first several episodes of the show, he's nothing but a slimy jerk. As the series went on, however, I grew to really like the character and started to actually root for the guy.

     It's fun to watch as a character gradually develops into an almost completely different character. I don't think I'd like to be referred to as a 'Michael Scott' if you were talking about Season One, but Season Seven? ...well... Probably no... Still no.

I've always considered myself more of a Darryl.

I've Always Been Their Biggest Flan

     Some people use those little yellow post-it notes to write down little reminders and what not. Myself? I like to draw characters from The Office on them!

More to come!

Cupid Was Dead To Begin With

     So we all know how Charles Dickens gave us the Spirits of Christmas... well Silly Nate is giving you the Spirits of Valentine's Day! You're welcome, Earth!

Say hello to Single and Mingle!

     Single represents the more anti-social aspect of the holiday that just wants to curl up in a sugar induced coma until February 15th!

    Whereas Mingle here is all about socializing! Her philosophy on life can pretty much be summed up in three little words... BLING BLING Y'ALL!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'd Like To See Them TRY!

Radagast the Brown

    Here's my take on a couple of characters that I would like to have seen better developed in the Hobbit movies. It seems like if they absolutely HAD to stretch the book into three movies, then they could have used some of that extra time to expand upon these interesting, yet very minor, characters and give them a bigger part to play. 


     Take Beorn, for example. Here's a character that was actually in the book, as opposed to the character, Legolas, who was not. Yet, Legolas ends up with the most screen time and character development, even though the dude already had his trilogy! I suppose the filmmakers felt that it was a safer bet to give us something familiar rather than throw a bunch of new stuff at us. But (and I can't believe I'm even asking this), what's the point of introducing a character that can turn into a giant bear and then hardly spend any time at all showing him turn into said bear?!? 

     On the other hand, Peter Jackson has never critiqued my drawing abilities, so I probably shouldn't tell him how to make movies.
