Templar, Arizona is updating again.

The TAZ IS BACK FAQ:

  • It’ll update weekly. The plan now is to dedicate one day a week to the comic. I can produce a page in about 11 hours.
  • A big site redesign is coming. 
  • A new TAZ book isn’t on the horizon. i’m saving up chapters for bigger books.
  • It’s about half done.

Thanks for your patience.

One of my first big webcomic passions is updating again! Yay <3

This makes me happy. I actually had a Templar, Arizona craving a couple of week ago and reread the whole archive.

If any of my followers want to check it out, just a word of warning. TAZ is not safe for work. There is violence and nudity of both sexes. Some of the nudity sexualized, mostly it’s just there. One character works at a store that sells porn, sex toys, guns, and booze, and she thoroughly enjoys her job, especially when it comes to the first two items. Do not read Templar, Arizona anywhere you would be uncomfortable with the possibility of someone looking over your shoulder to see a large woman with a manic expression saying “Let the cock of science fuck you.” That scene is comedic gold, and you should be allowed to enjoy it.

The comic isn’t really about that, though. It’s about exploring this setting. Templar is a bit like if Night Vale was a major city and managed to half the creeping horror without losing any of the weird.

I check for an update once a week regardless. Suuuuuch a good comic. frequentlydefiant read this so we can be basket head people at some inappropriate time.

This is like the most urgent sign I’ve ever seen in my entire life.

Whereas this is the most passive-aggressive sign.

Seriously, it kills me when I see people hold scientists up as pinnacles of logic and reason.

Because one time the professor I was interning for got punched in the face by another professor, because mine got the funding, and told the other professor his theory was stupid.

This same professor told me to throw rocks to scare the “stupid fucking crabs” into moving so we could count them properly.

SCIENCE

thank you

this is one of the best comments this post has recieved

I have witnessed:

Two professors hiding around a corner and snickering, “Shhh, here she comes!” While a female professor approached and, when she finally found them, she proceeded to scream while pointing from one to the other, “You! I called your office but you weren’t there! So I tried to call YOUR office to figure out where HE was but YOU weren’t there!”

Two grad students standing outside a closed and locked door yelling, “Come out of the damn office. You haven’t left for days. If you didn’t have a couch in there I’d be concerned as to where you were sleeping!”

A religious studies professor apologizing for being late to class because, “security stopped me because I’m dressed like a hobbit”

Watched a professor snort the results of my experiment to determine if I had the right final compound.

Two archeology professors toss priceless fossilized teeth back and forth in an attempt to figure out who is smarter by “guessing the type of tooth and species of animal before it lands”

Multiple fully degreed individuals throw dry ice at one another in an attempt to be first to use the lab/get that piece of equipment/or change the iPod song.

A genetics professor build furniture out of stacks of paper and planks of wood because she is that far behind in grading papers/responding. One of the impromptu furniture pieces housed a fish tank.

I could go on but I think that covers the larger portion of the insanity…

Every time it comes around on my dash, it gets better.

I have had a professor buy a huge fuckoff bottle of rum during fieldwork in Costa Rica and let the undergrads get wasted because “you’re not underage in Costa Rica and we’ll be up all night with the bats anyway!”

- Same professor hung a bat from her headlamp and wore it as a decoration for an entire night. 

- A whole swarm of older women - and these are women with PhDs and world-renown bat experts, the bigwigs - all, to a woman, go to the formal charity dinner at an international research symposium in Toronto in late October dressed in skimpy Batgirl costumes. Because Halloween was that weekend, you see.

- At a different conference, a professor get blackout drunk and pass out on the side of the road. 

- “Yeah, we have to say we did it properly for the grant but to be really honest, Miracle-gro works better.”

- Teaching lab: we had liquid nitrogen for a demo, and after class the professor, the other TA, and I spent a good two hours freezing and breaking things in it. 

a chemistry class begins with 30 students nine months later just six of us left sitting on tables dipping paper into contaminated chemicals to see what happens when we burn it teacher making idle suggestions while he marks our work

"go to the fume hood thing, yeah now put some potassium in chlorine" can i burn the results sir? "fuck it sure whatever its tainted anyway"

The prof I’m working for just asked me if I knew how to pick a lock, and when I responded “yes” she replied, “see, this is why I hire the former delinquents instead of the suck-ups. You’re actually useful.”

I then let her into her office.

Arts and Crafts

I’m doing this not work work project, and for various reasons I have gone a bit overboard.

There is now a tumblr for the project because I will be DAMNED if someone else is going to try and SCRIPT what I am saying with this project because I am not a “real” artist.

So, uh, link: library-chair.tumblr.com

I am a little disappointed to find that the illustrator responsible for the cover art of a book is not something that typically gets cataloged. Not surprised that it’s generally difficult to track down (especially if you’ve *ahem* already chopped the book to pieces).

Although I’m fascinated to find that non-pen names of authors seem to be right there on the copyright page. Did not know that.
