It’s been busy at Casa De ZDogg, folks, and hence the dearth of recent activity on the parody video front. Among other obligations, I’ve been forced to spend some quality time with TurboTax the past few days, and it hasn’t been pretty. In addition to charging me “income” tax this year, the government has decided to tack on an “outcome” tax as well. Luckily since my outcomes are so poor in general, I’m getting a refund on that front.
I believe it was Mr. Miyagi who said, “Tax on, tax off” as he forced the Karate Kid to calculate his Alternative Minimum Tax using only an abacus and a rancid jar of Tiger Balm. Having no Daniel-san, and no accountant for that matter, it was DIY all the way for me.
See y’all when I get out of jail, homies!
And speaking of paying one’s debts, a groovy little outfit run by a couple of kick-a** nurses out of a remote desert research facility has allowed me to do what is likely my first (and at this rate, my last) celebrity endorsement. PathoPhizz makes psychedelic scrubs decorated in one of several nasty pathogenic organisms. Being fans of ZDoggery, they generously provided me with the Clostridium botulinum model, depicted in vivo here. Damn it feels good to be a gangsta!
And while we’re on the subject of generosity, I must again give mad props to one Mike Cadogan, aka @Sandnsurf, of LifeInTheFastLane.com. He has once again helped me to radically redesign ZDoggMD.com to be cleaner, faster, and easier to navigate than before. The Aussie Crocodile O.G. strikes again, mates! Now here is an ER doctor, rock concert MD (his random pics with legendary musicians routinely provoke unbridled jealousy), health IT guru, and current team doctor for the Western Force pro rugby team. Did I mention he’s got a beautiful family as well? Somehow he manages to find the time to help a sucker MC like me with my website.
If the US government charged him an “outcome” tax, we’d surely be able to pay off our national debt, that’s how much mad outcome he produces.
Let us know what you think of the new site, constructive feedback is encouraged. We’re currently working on some new video projects, so prepare yourselves. In the meantime, here are some AWFUL video recordings of random late-night Skype conversations I had with Doc Quixote. Neither particularly funny nor informative, they offer a glimpse into just what massive dorks we really are.
