Happy New Years everyone. I'm sure most of you know that my internet self has existed at Heaven For Betsy dot com as of late. We're putting a lot of effort into our upcoming show at the Carousel Lounge in the 14th, and some other fun things later down the line. I hope to have more QuickThought*s and Holy Mole's coming at you real soon too.

June 17, 2009

Sorry that updates are late. I accidentally left all my art supplies at work over the weekend, so I owe you a Holy Mole and two more QuickThoughts*. I'll probably post the QuickThoughts* tonight and the Holy Moles (last week's and friday's) over the weekend.

I've also started going by my new pen name for cartooning, which is Charlie Thatcher, so don't be confused by that.

May 22, 2009

The Holy Mole page is up and running. Look for updates every week or so. I got it looking pretty more or less, but I'll fix up the site as much as possible, as well as adding more strips, character pages, and peeks at the Holy Mole novel, which will begin production as soon as the script is finish. Enjoy.

May 17, 2009

Just to make things official, the launch of the rebooted Holy Mole series will begin next Friday, May 22th, this time with an actual website, a schmeering of strips, and even an actual mole facsimile. All this and more, next friday. Well, figuratively. Maybe a little more. Eh, not really.

May 12, 2009

I don't know when this happened, but at some point in time, QuickThought* became the featured comic on Family Webcomics. Everyone should check out that site, because I'm on the front page, and that sort of thing deeply entertains me.

Also, the Squirrels page is back up, with a corresponding Characters page. Soon, all the broken "Home" tags on the individual comics will be replaced with working "Back" links.

May 10, 2009

QuickThought*s will still be updating daily. Also, a little event to add to your calendar, on Wednesday, QuickThought* will be up to it's one hundredth carton. Having already made it, I can safely say it's a little disappointing. It's actually already uploaded if you know a little about html programming or have a good sense of my naming conventions. If not, you'll have to wait a couple days. Keep eyes here for Holy Mole updates, including a brand new (that I used three years ago) "Coming Soon" banner.

May 3, 2009

Starting this week, May 4th, 5th, sizth, seventh, AND THE EIGHTh, there will now be a DAILY QUICKTHOUGHT*. So before you go to work, or in my case, second sleep, you can get a little pump action going on your braincase. Please, don't thank me, just send money.

April 29, 2009

There's a new Holy Mole strip up. The part of Woody is now being played by a mole. It's gonna take a while to replace him in the other strips, but not that long.

April 17, 2009

Happy New Year! Also, Episode #3 of Holy Mole is finally available for viewing! A comic event three years in the making, the world premiere of Holy Mole Episode #3 is the single defining event of our generation. Check back later for an actual Holy Mole site.

March 24, 2009

Ryan Noriega's QuickThought* has already reached cartoon #50. Do you remember where you were when this momentous occasion occurred? Sure you do. You were here, at��▽�ゥ. Thank you for sharing this memory with us.

March 13, 2009

Ryan Noriega's QuickThought* is up! What is Ryan Noriega's QuickThought*, you ask? Well, let's hear it from none other than Ryan Noriega expert, Ryan Noriega:

"Ryan Noriega's QuickThought is a phenomenon, not unlike the Big Bang or an ice cream headache. You know that feeling you get when you visit the zoo and realize that all of the cages are empty? For a split second, you're full of adrenaline [sic] because you don't know if the animals all escaped and are running rampant, maybe in your home or your grandparent's home, but soon enough you realize that actually the zoo just charged you thirty-five dollars to look at empty cages... that, in a nutshell, is QuickThought*."
Check out the link to the right for Ryan Noriega's QuickThought*.

Yeah... it's just the napkin comics.

October 24, 2006

I'm working on recording an album. You probably heard something about it on facebook, or from me, over AIM. Um... I'll post more about it later. Oh yeah, it won't be very good; it's my first time trying to anything like this, and... I am not a very diligent worker. Crunchy.

June 25, 2006

Holy Mole has hit the newsstands and so far it is a HIT! Just look what people are saying:

"Dude, that was kind of funny."

"Oh, I get it. It's a mole that's a preacher."

"Holy Mole is the single most important contribution humankind has to offer."
-Ryan Noriega, author of Holy Mole.

June 8, 2006

Just a quick note - episode one of Holy Mole will definitely be out and ready by Monday, so you can look out for that. And that's it. Maybe I'll post my character sheets or something. Whatever.

June 6, 2006

The remake of The Omen comes out today... what this means for you... well... probably nothing. I'll put a link up that connects to the Squirrels archive. Then it'll feel like I've done something today.

May 28, 2006

There's a new website! You can check it out now at Pretty soon, we'll have the rest of the junk from the old site up here, including the Squirrels archive, and... that was mostly what was on the old site. There might have been other stuff. I'll look.
