Was busy at Anime Boston. I'll have a new comic up soon(ish).
Also... I might be slightly drunk while typing this...
(I'm kidding about that last part).
(and also that first part).
(no wait, just the last part again).

DISPENSAH GOES HEAH! TELEPORTAH GOES HEAH! COMIC LINK GOES HEAH!
Good Lord, dead baby jokes! Something is seriously wrong with me. What's worse is that today's comic is based on a real conversation I had with Josh Miller from GameForLife. That poster he's standing in front of? That's a real poster which is being plastered all over the uncharted frozen north; and looking at it I suddenly want to eat a cheeseburger, which further solidifies my character as being nothing less than deranged.
While I'm on the subject of Josh; he put me in one of his comics. So go visit it, not just because I'm a sexy stud no matter who draws me, but also his comics are pretty damn funny.
So what have I been up to? Cons! And by cons I mean RoflFAIL NY!
I swore to myself I'd write a comic and a rant to deal with everything that went on there. I even drew half a comic before my tablet died and by then roflthing was so far in the past posting it would be pointless.
So how can I sum it up so I can move on? Boring.
I mean, there was this guy named Jason Scott who got up, and for an hour and a half, talked about how he twitters about his cat. HIS FREAKING CAT! So for an hour and a half I sat back and watched anonymous make fun of the fact that Jason Scott looks like a 45 year old manchild who lives with his mother and does all his shopping at hot topic.
OH WAIT! HE IS, AND HE DOES!
The guy who created comic sans was there, but his panel was boring. A history of comic sans? I don't care where it came from, I wanted an apology dammit! (I didn't get one).
The only true highlight of the weekend was meeting TronGuy at the afterparty while all my friends smoked and drank their asses off.
On a completely related note, when stranded in NYC at 2:30AM, it is completely possible to shove thirteen people into the same hotel room without room service noticing/caring.
It was during the shoehorning of people into that room that I met the following awesome people:
HPdarkness, photographer/graphic designer extraordinaire; who doesn't mind sleeping on the floor next to an open window.
Ash-the-fox, a furry. Avoid at all costs!
DiENExDREAM, a pretty cool chick with an awesome collection of techno, and an unhealthy obsession with sega.
And TheBlackDeath WHO SNORES LOUDER THAN A TROPICAL RAINFOREST!
And so these people, along with tronguy, made roflcon woth going to, and if they go next year I'll totally be down for another trip to NY (Because any excuse to leave my house after months/years of reclusiveness is a good one.)
I had more I wanted to whine about, but it's almost 5:00AM, and I think I have work in the morning. So Goodnight

Ok, I have to preface this post with a disclaimer.
*ahem * Josh Ã¢â‚¬Å“scudÃ¢â‚¬Â Miller, the real life counterpart to the character in this comic strip actually believes that the spirit was a pretty okay movie. He wishes that the wrong impression not be spread about that. His character in the comic book world does not mirror his real life views regarding Frank millerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s adaptation of Will EisnerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“The SpiritÃ¢â‚¬Â Motion picture.
There, now we have that out of the way, and can get on to the only opinion which matters in this space, MINE!
So, the spirit was badÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Twilight for boys bad! What did I expect? A decent film noir, superhero detective story.
What did I get? Frank MillerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sexual frustrations as played by the rejected cast of sin city.
Oh and Samuel L. Jackson dressed up as a nazi and yelled about eggs on his face.
I could go on about how bad it wasÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ So I will!
The police were about as useless as can be, which is odd, considering how they should all be connected with their easy-to-use NOKIA CELL PHONES, while exchanging information on their DELL COMPUTERS and apprehending criminals in their DEPENDABLE FORD CARS AND TRUCKS.
Yeah, they went a liiiiiitle overboard with the product placement. But what was bad was that the product placement didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make any damn sense! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s set in the 50s, but everyone has a cell phone and a computer? Jeeze Frank, pick a technological era and stick with it!
The whole movie feels like it was done in one take, seeing as how the actors are always tripping over, or forgetting their own lines.
Now, in spite of everything IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve said, I loved this movie. And I think you will too so long as you participate in this little experiment IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m about to put before you.
WARNING! You must be of legal drinking age wherever you live to continue with my super awesome patented Ã¢â‚¬Å“Spirit Film Enjoyment ActivityÃ¢â‚¬Â.
First, get a bottle of hard liquor, It doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to be too strong because you WILL use the whole thing up. Take the bottle into the theater with you, (You can also do this in the privacy of your own home if you feel so inclined).
Now follow these instructions.
Whenever the Spirit Hits on a girl, or chases a skirt. Take a shot.
Whenever it looks like a character has forgotten their line. Take a shot.
Whenever Samuel L. Jackson says, or does, anything that makes no Damn sense. Take a shot.
Whenever you see evidence of sexual frustration on the part of Frank Miller. Take a shot.
Notice how the film is getting better and better?
Surprise! The spirit is your new favorite film! Go out now and enjoy it!
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all for now, more comics as inspiration strikes. Till next timeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
