GALACTUS ATE THE BLOGOSPHERE [Mar. 12th, 2006|10:21 pm]
J. Jacques
Man I guess it has been a while since I posted anything here huh!

Cristi and I bought a new couch a couple weeks ago. It feels really strange to used money you made on the Intar Wubs to purchase nice furniture.

I found out this evening that a friend of mine was just blindsided by some lady-problems much akin to the Marten-Faye situation. I have coined a term for dudes who get shot down in relationships by a lady's issues- befayeal. I imagine there would be a female-oriented equivalent but I'm not sure what it would be called.

My buddy Dan is moving out to Easthampton this week! He doesn't do a webcomic but he is still pretty awesome, so Easthampton will become marginally more excellent upon his arrival. EASTHAMPTON: WHERE THE INTERNET PEOPLE ARE.

You know what I'd really like to see? Fewer new webcomics about video games and more new webcomics about things that are not video games. While I'm wishing I would also like a pony and a 1959 Les Paul. Maybe a new webcomic about ponies playing vintage guitars?

Oh man, for a minute I though you were going to say you were wishing for a pony and a plastic rocket. I was going to have to high-five you, but I suppose you are not as nerdy as Aido.

if i could draw, i'd so do a webcomic about living in a retirement community.


on the other hand, no one would be able to tell the difference between the retired folk and myself, as we would all be blobs.

in any point, congrats on the new couch. we're finally getting one in my house too.

ok, you asked for it...
time for a cheap plug.
Check out Bacon Mangod (done by the excellent Young Adonis, which is not me :( ) at Strawpixel.com. It is one of the two comics on that site and is truly excellent. Not a word about video games and it's all about a poor dude who can't seem to be able to ask a nice girl out.

(and no, it's not the one on the front page right now. It's updated on Wednesday)

Gee, where did I read something like that before?

Hey, my friend just got me addicted to QC and I read the entire comic over the past few days. the past 48 hrs, to be specific. Anyways, just wanted to say that you kick multiple forms of ass, and congrats on the new couch!

It's nice to see people that do what they love, and support themselves financially in the process.

It is 4:41am UK time. I am writing an essay which makes me want to ctrl alt delete my soul, yet at this point in time, the only thing I can think of is: Would you ever draw Marten with a beard? Just a little one? A little goatee?

i plan on making a webcomic that's a combination of science fiction and indie-whores, featuring a few indie dudes living in a futuristic city in the year 2057. it will be more serious than anything, though.

Some of us have comics that are not about video games.

I don't know who they are though.

No www.thesordidaffairs.net idea whatsoever...

Fiery Furnaces reference. You just made my motha-lovin' night.

Thought you ought to know. (I heart QC with the white-hot passion of a thousand suns, by the way. Or something.)

I hope I did not offend you! I was trying to stress that it is through no fault of the dude's own in this given situation. It's a sucky position to be in, and I felt it warranted a name. But yeah if I hurt your feelings by bringing it up I'm sorry, I can hell of delete this post if you want.
