Nancy and… Bucko?

Well, this seems to be the week of jaw-dropping over-the-top tributes.

Gaming in Obscurity’s guide to Five Card Nancy features host Ryan McSwain’s own home-made Five Card Nancy deck (learn about the game here) and a complete explanation of the rules and origins of the game and, um… me.

And then, about seven and a half minutes in, um…


…a thing happens.

I don’t know how to describe it. It’s wonderfully bizarre and funny, and — if you’re me — even more terrifying than yesterday’s infographic, but it’s kind of a must-see.

Meanwhile, back in Scott World Prime, Jeff Parker and Erika Moen have begun an adorable new webcomic called Bucko.

It’s off to a great start. I especially like the local, rainy, Portlandiness of it. Feels like a love letter to that wonderful, cartoonist-clogged city already. Definitely one to bookmark.

Have a great weekend!

    You know someone is going to perform that number at SDCC one day….

    And remember, it’s “Friendly” restaurants, not… oh, right. They changed it.

    Ha! Hilarious, Scott. I guess you know you’ve arrived when you get a video tribute like that… or a stalker…. maybe BOTH!

    On his McCloud flag, is that blood on your cheek a la Dexter?

  4. Ryan McSwain says:

    The McCloud banner was a spray painted stencil. The cheapest way to do it was to use a plastic tablecloth, a la Dexter. The plastic didn’t hold the paint that well, so some of it flaked off, but I liked the look so I didn’t worry about fixing it. The spot on the glasses was a smudge from the stencil moving before the paint was dry.

      Hi Ryan! Thanks for a crazy, wonderful link I could share.

      • Ryan McSwain says:

        No problem, Scott. Thanks for posting it, and for taking the whole thing in the spirit it was intended.

        Sorry if I’m flooding the comments–either I’m doing something wrong or I don’t understand the moderation.

        • Matthew Marcus says:

          Dude, no worries. I’m a chronic over-poster. Great video!

          • Ryan McSwain says:

            Thanks. (For some reason, I kept hitting submit, but the comment wouldn’t post. After doing so numerous times, I thought, “Great, I bet replies are moderated before appearing and this guy will see 12 comments and think I really am a stalker.”)

            • Scott says:

              Yeah, my spam catcher sometimes goes after innocent bystanders. Otherwise, comments should be unmoderated and should post right away.

              Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

    If I were you Scott I would be very flattered and possibly a little unnerved after that.
