Tag: Hyperbole and a Half
Allie Brosh, the creator of Hyperbole and a Half, a comic series of hilarity dealing from everything from pets to depression, is publishing a book. And she was asked to market said book on the internet. Which she did on Twitter. To which someone on Tumblr happily collected into the following link. Please read it, as it is hilarious.
Hyperbole and a Half lives!
For those of you who have never stumbled upon the blog Hyperbole and a Half, let me provide you some quick links:
And now that you are laughing hysterically, let me assure you that this blog is not just about dogs, here’s her introduction to Texas.
Alright. So if you didn’t know. Hyperbole and a Half hasn’t updated in a long time. And it is because the author was suffering (and is still recovering) from depression.
Now I’ve heard descriptions of depression but this series of words and images prehaps nails it home for me so well, that I felt it must be shared. People who don’t suffer from depression could benefit highly from the perspective this provides.
Hyperbole and a Half, one of my favorite humor blogs, is releasing a book! And I’m told it will have pages, and words, and even pictures (but the jury is out on page numbers). The book will have some re-posts of content from her blog, like the ones I linked to, and about half of it will be completely new material.
Here’s the sad part. the book won’t be out for at least the shelf life of a can of peaches. Don’t know how long that is? Check out the post. You might find some shapes in there too.
Wow. That is so awesome. I totally would have wanted to play that as a kid. Yeah I know you’re supposed to be horrified by the thirteen year old girls but what can I say? I like wolves.
I’m not sure I’ve posted a Hyperbole and a Half before. It is a highly humorous blog by a person named Allie who likes to draw unicorns. As you can tell from this about page. You might find more information about the author on the blog’s second about page. Regardless the blog tells personal tales, beautifully illustrated, of humor and jest. For example, this month’s festive edition titled:
The Year Kenny Loggins Ruined Christmas by Allie (hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com)
To give you a quick preview, here is her commentary on the nativity story she once saw as a child.
“I could see that the story had potential, but I was deeply disappointed by the whole experience. By the time my grandparents dropped me off at home, I had convinced myself that I needed to take matters into my own hands and reinvent the birth of Christ so that it conformed to my expectations. My parents and I lived with my maternal grandmother and my aunt, so I would have more than enough talent to work with – all I had to do was create a compelling story line.”
I just about burst out laughing. Please, read on, to see how Kenny Loggins ruined Christmas.
