Damn it damn it damn it

So, where's my comic? Any of my long-time fans (I won't say anything self-deprecating like "all two of them" because that would suck) must have realized by now that I will often go for long periods of time without actually updating. I seem to follow a specific pattern, which I hadn't realized until just recently.
First, I make two or three comics. At this point, I either have trouble thinking of what to do next, or I get too lazy to actually make a comic (even if I have a bunch of comics written ahead of time). This often lasts 1-3 weeks, at which point my guilt overcomes me and causes me to struggle to put out a new comic. Then I "get back into the groove," as people who don't brush their teeth often say, and put out another two or three comics. Continue this pattern forever.
A lot of this stems from the fact that I'm easily distracted, and that I don't like to stack up comics (I think about them too much before they automatically post and want to change them) or put out guest comics (I did that way too much earlier, and I should really save that kind of thing for when I break both my hands, or when I die and have my son try and recreate my comics to the best of his ability). Also, I don't like to spend all that much time at my computer these days (these days being the summer) because I have to spend 9 hours at a computer during work.
I'll try my best to finish the comic I've been working on the last 3 days tonight. It's a pretty good one, so you had all better read it and make it your desktop wallpapers, or I'll crawl through your monitors and scare you so bad that you die and make this horrible face that will only be visible for a split second, and everyone will be like "ewwwww."
Obviously I am making a reference to the movie "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow."

Oh man what the hell is wrong with me

I really need to make a new comic, but I keep getting distracted by San Andreas for the X-Box. Also, my computer is in my messy, messy room which I would have to clean if I were to spend any time in there (I moved back home for the summer, and still haven't unpacked). I could decide to announce another "guest comic" week, but I'm not going to. I'm just going to hunker down and... well, not clean my room, but I'll make the comic. I will make that damn comic.

By the way, the most recent White Stripes album is really good. Other bands should take a note from the White Stripes and start making good music.

I'm at work

I got a job last Monday at the engineering firm where my dad works. I'm like an intern now, so that's all good and stuff. Also, $11 an hour. I like the job and everything, so I'm not going to make a bunch of annoying office-related comics now where some guy talks to his boss and his boss says something really stupid, and then the guy is all like "Oh man, that doesn't make ANY sense" and then he quits and gets a job digging ditches. It would be beneath me to do something like that.
I'll try to make a new comic later today, which is possible because it's Friday and everything. Not until some time after about 6:00 pm, though, because if I make comics at work, people will laugh at me and stuff. Then they'll fire me, probably.

UPDATE (later in the day): AutoCAD is just totally freaking out. I use this program called AutoCAD that you might know about where you make these drawings for engineering and such. I did this one subroutine where I try to make a rectangular pipe (which really exists, look it up) and it just starts bugging out on me. It's all like "a buffer overrun has been detected, dude," and then it ruins my shit without letting me save. I reinstalled it and everything, and it still doesn't work. AutoCAD is like a homeless man in this way.
Also, I'm sad because tonight I'm going to go home and there won't be anything good on television, because network executives don't seem to realize that there are plenty of losers like me that just want to relax on Friday nights and watch TV and not go out and do things like drink beer and get in a car crash. I mean, they don't even show Adult Swim (which, despite its name, isn't a porno) on Friday nights, which would probably be the best time for me to watch it. What is their problem? Is that their day off? Don't they know that I need to WATCH TV SHOWS? This is like inventing a game console that only turns on when it is 8:00 am on Monday through Friday and turns itself off at around 3 pm, or starting up a chain of banks that close at 5 pm.

I'm still lazy

The link post thing can wait. What is important at the moment is this website where you peel a potato. I do this for your benefit. Oh, also, there's a new comic.

Also, I just found out that there is a remake of the original Evil Dead movie in the works. I don't want to sound like a huge greasy nerd that probably wets his bed, but I am concerned by this development. For one thing, Bruce Campbell said in an interview that Evil Dead 4 (not the remake) was probably in the works, but that Sam Raimi is still too occupied by the Spiderman series to make it yet. Also, the remake will have an entirely new cast, director, etc., and is basically being made "for a new generation." Not only that, but there will not even be an "Ash" character. I don't want to say anything else since the movie isn't even being made yet, but there's a pretty good chance this is going to suck.
If that last paragraph means absolutely nothing to you, I apologize. Go peel some virtual potatoes.

I'm lazy

I'll do the link post thing next time, because I'm writing this during my 15 minute break from finals-week studying. However, I will mention that today's comic was not made out of laziness. In fact, this was one of those rare comics that was actually made a few days ahead of the time that I posted it. McMahon just isn't very good at drawing, so hooray for me!

The next comic will be showing up probably on Thursday or Friday, since that is when my finals are all done. We'll see how lazy I am on Thursday.

EDIT: There is one thing that I have to mention, because it really makes me mad, and these issues are important to everyone. I really can't stand it when people pretend to do real things on forums. You know, when someone says they're doing something, and they put it in little asterisks, but you know that they're really not doing them because that would be ludicrous. An example (for those of you lucky enough to not know what I'm talking about) would be if someone decided that they were going to pretend to punch another person on the forum, so they say: *punches ass_slapper69^_^ in the face*. The REALLY bad thing, though, is that this behavior leads to more of the same from other forum posters trying to "get back" at their enemies by writing more annoying stuff. Here is a totally real excerpt from a totally real forum:


M² - *punches Ryuko*
Levi-chan - *punches Ryuko*
Ryuko - (punches you both)
M² - :hides from ryuko: :(
Levi-chan - OMG...we're toast.
Ryuko - >_<
M² - :offers brownies for forgiveness:
Levi-chan - Okay, okay. Sorry, Ryuko. Dough I can't promise that I will be able to restrain myself all the time. ^_^ *ducks* I kid! C'mere, gimme a hug. :)
Ryuko - :D All is forgiven. (assumes the aspect of a loving mother goddess) (eats brownies)
Levi-chan - Yay! *hugs Ryuko* I admit, I kinda liked annoying Ryuko for a while. I didn't want to see her wearing an expression that is sour, dough. *hugs her more to make up for the above trespassing* Sorry! *hugs again*
noxmeansxno - OH EM GEE. Attack of the puns.


It goes on like this for 20 pages. This is totally unacceptable. Also, what the hell is with that one guy apologizing and explaining himself? Like he actually punched Ryuko? That's bullshit.

Wow, pretty colors

Yes, the comic is colored now, and I'm saying that in the least racist way possible. Plus, there are t-shirt references and stuff that you can't even believe.

You can't believe them, can you? No.

By the way, you may have noticed by now that I like to include links to stupid pictures in a lot of these posts. Well, my next post is going to make your head explode, because every word is going to be a link to a different site. Be sure to stay tuned, because this will be sure to occupy way too much of your time, as I'm sure it will mine.

Also, I should mention real quick that there's something wrong with Keenspace, my hosting site, so that sometimes the comic archives don't show up. If this happens to you, send me an email at so I can fix it up real good.

Rejected comic ideas

I was totally going to draw a comic today, but I had to write this paper that took until about 2:00 am this morning, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow. Hopefully, I'll be able to make one tomorrow. In the meantime, here is a list of plot-lines that have since been rejected due to sub-standard quality.


1. Gorsky buys an American flag, puts it on the floor underneath some drunk guy's bar stool, and waits for him to throw up. When he does, Gorsky accuses him of being a terrorist.

2. McMahon gets sued by Pepsi for making fun of them on his website. They drop the case after finding out that he's basically retarded.

3. Gorsky writes a play about a cat that gets sick, and it is extra sad because no one cares about cats enough to actually take it to the vet, so the cat's owners let it die. Four people go to watch the play, and three of them leave halfway through. The fourth one is the resurrected corpse of Pol Pot.

4. Gorsky is actually a secret agent for the KGB, but he got kicked out after accidentally shooting Gorbechev's cat with a high-powered rifle.

5. McMahon becomes a dentist, and joins a secret guild of dentists that secretly rules the world. He gets kicked out of the guild because he's a total asshole.

6. Gorsky drinks so much Mountain Dew: Code Red that the red dye actually changes the color of his skin. Also, he becomes a diabetic, and randomly goes into seizures when the comic stops being funny, therefore relieving the author of having to think of a new joke.

7. The chick that messed up her hand with broken glass returns to the strip, but is drawn to be more attractive, and is given sassier dialogue. This undoubtedly gets Biscuits for Breakfast more readers, and Alex Keene decides to put a donation button on his site that says "Her boobs get bigger with every donation of $10."

8. McMahon flips off Ronald Reagan, even though Ronald Reagan is dead. A bunch of angry Republicans start chasing him around with torches and pitchforks. Then Gorsky has a diabetic seizure.


Also, I totally can't believe this is real. (Safe for work, I guess, but I would be embarassed if my employers saw me looking at it, to say the least).
