124 | TV Traffic

Here my (current) ideal TV schedule - not that I don't occasionally watch anything else, but that's the best of it !!
Voici mon programme télé hebdomadaire idéal. Je regarde parfois d'autres trucs, mais je ne manque JAMAIS AUCUN de ceux-ci.

How I met your Mother (season 6 - CBS) : Because Barney Stinson, because I want to know who the mother is, because Robin Sparkles !!
90210Gossip Girl (season 3 / season 4 - The CW) : The two guilty pleasures pairing up. Hey, I'm still a teenager at heart !!

Glee (season 2 - FOX) Simply because it's one of the best comedy shows in those last two years ! Because Sue Sylvester, too. Because I was so impressed with how I laughed at the first season that I had to continue, and I'm very happy I did. And I like the songs.

Modern Family (season 2 - ABC) : Because it's hi-la-rious !! Because I love all the characters, even the children (if you know me, you'll find this surprising), because Sofia Vergara is ho... very funny !
Cougar Town (season 2 - ABC) : Because it's basically Scrubs humour applied to an alcoholic Courtney Cox whose problems are so futile but so funny, and every character is nuts.

Community (season 2 - NBC) : Discovered it this summer, ate up all the first season episodes in three days. This one is a little bizarre, but still really funny.
30 Rock (season 5 - NBC) : Because Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, hilarious, well-written, caustical, genius, so many puns and non-sense. One of the best comedies on TV, like, ever.
The Big Bang Theory (season 4 - CBS) : Because Sheldon Cooper.
Fringe (season 3 - FOX) : Because it's the most amazing supernatural / sci-fi show ever - I'm not a sci-fi fan at all - and the episodes are everything I like : well-written, well-acted, creepy, emotional, kinda funny some times, intense... Shortly, you have to watch it.
Misfits (season 2 - E4) : Watched the first season last year and fell in love with it. Basically looked like a supernatural version of Skins, but in fact a lot more than that, and often more creative. The cast is perfect, the stories are great and everything about it makes you crave for more !
Grey's Anatomy (season 7 - ABC) : Because, like every shows described here, I've watched it from the beginning, and I'm a faithful guy (take note, people ! :p)

Desperate Housewives (season 7 - ABC) : Because this series used to be the best thing on TV, and this season has been really good so far, going back to everything I loved about the first season. Because Eva Longoria.
Dexter (season 5 - Showtime) : Because, come on, everybody loves Dexter, and this season's mystery is very compelling ! "Die, die, Dexter !"
The Walking Dead (season 1 - AMC) : The only new show I watch this year ! Because I loved the comics (though I confess I stopped reading when they killed the character I liked the most) and AMC (which air Mad Men and the best show ever, Breaking Bad) did a very good job with it so far !

122 | Power Bunnies

Since last month, I'm illustrating articles for the ComMedia, the magazine by the Communication students of the Université de Montréal. This first one was made for an article about the latest technology gizmo, Karotz, whose use is still blurry to me (they have wi-fi ? they read your messages ?) but which allowed me to draw some good kawaï as these gadgets are in the shape of colorful bunnies.
Depuis le mois dernier, je suis illustrateur pour le ComMedia, le magazine des éudiants en communication de l'Université de Montréal. Voici une illustration réalisée pour un article sur de nouveaux gadgets technologiques, les Karotz, dont l'utilité reste assez floue pour moi, mais qui m'a permis de réaliser du bon kawaï de derrière les fagots, ces gadgets ayant la forme de lapins.

BTW, as we're talking about technologic stuff with unclear usefulness, I'm now on Twitter, so if you care, follow me ! http://twitter.com/#!/kjfcomics
Au fait, puisqu'on parle de machins technologiques dont l'utilité est floue, je suis maintenant sur Twitter, alors, si vous avez autant de temps à perdre que moi, allez-y ! http://twitter.com/#!/kjfcomics

Il est amusant de remarquer que le gagnant est le seul qui n'a reçu aucun commentaire lors de sa publication. C'est toujours les outsiders qui gagnent.

117 | Monster of the Month : "With me you're sure to go to Heaven"

"Avec moi le septième ciel est assuré"

If every spider looked like this, there'd be less Arachnophobia in this world (and more dead grooms ?). This beautiful Black Widow has had nine husbands, which all died of natural death. Someone wants to take a chance ?
Anyway, only one Monster left before the vote tomorrow !! Stay tuned and Happy Halloween !


Si toutes les araignées ressemblaient à ça, il y aurait sans doute moins d'arachnophobes sur Terre (et plus de décès d'époux ?). Cette belle Veuve Noire a eu neuf maris, tous décédés de mort naturelle. Quelqu'un veut tenter sa chance ?
En tous cas, plus qu'un Monstre avant le vote demain !! N'oubliez pas et Joyeux Halloween !


116 | Month of the Monsters : "I'm in your best nightmares"

"Je suis dans tes meilleurs cauchemars"

This young scarecrow just started a promising career in a cornfield. He's made out of all natural stuff so he's a healthy catch, if you're into bio, and he's really cool with animals (particularly ticks) !
Only two days (and two more monsters) before the vote !!


Ce jeune épouvantail vient juste de commencer sa carrière dans unchamp de maïs. Il n'est fait que de trucs naturels donc c'est un bon parti si vous aimez tout ce qui est bio, et en plus il est très aimé des animaux (en particulier les tiques) !
Plus que deux jours et deux monstres avant le vote !


115 | Month of the Monsters : "I don't bite - except if it turns you on"

"Je ne mords pas, sauf si ça t'excite".

This guy has nothing particular to say... The photographer wanted to capture the exact moment of the transformation. He did. Luckily his arm has now been attached back to his shoulder, thanks to the Witch.

Ce jeune loup-garou n'a pas grand chose a dire... De toutes façons, une fois dans son état, on ne pige pas trop ce qu'il dit. Le photographe voulait capturer le moment exact de sa transformation. Il a réussi. Par chance, on a aussi réussi à retrouver son bras et le regreffer à son épaule (merci Mlle Sorcière).
