Okay so how about those new comics

You may have noticed (I hope) that I started drawing the regular comic. This may come as a shock to some of you, since my comic was just a pixellated ugly nightmare up until now. However, I think my art skills have improved enough that I can hold my own with a paper and pen now. I have other reasons for changing the style, too, but I don't feel like typing them all right now... however, you might be enlightened by this forum post I made over on the Keenspace forums (the dudes who host my site) while trying to get more people to look at my site. If you don't feel like reading too much stuff, the gist of it is that drawing stuff is good, and not drawing stuff is bad. Also there's some stuff there about the colors on my site being ugly, and my comic being too offensive, but you don't have to read those other peoples' posts.

I was actually surprised to find that a few people were disappointed by my change in art style. I really don't see how this can be possible. My friend from high school, Steve Johnson, put it this way:
"Most webcomic readers just like the status quo, and if you ask them, they will say that they want more of the same [...] because it is what is the same, and what is comfortable."
This is the only explanation that makes the least bit of sense. What do the rest of you think of the change? Go ahead and post comments below this post like I know you like to do, because you know you were just gonna do that anyway.

I wuz camping doods

I just got back from camping! We went to Dry Falls, which is this big dry canyon about 2 hours west of Spokane. Our campground was basically a gravel driveway, and we were surrounded by about 200 people that wouldn't shut the hell up until like 3 am (or until we yelled something obscene at them). As if that wasn't bad enough, the place was just windy as hell every single night. The sound of the tent trying to collapse on itself did however cover up the sound of stupid teenagers laughing, so I guess things equaled themselves out.

By the way, let me inform my fans and any potential internet hacker-type people that I don't respond to emails titled "1" with the word "1" in the body, and I especially don't open the attached text files. And I ESPECIALLY don't open emails sent by someone named "," so if you're trying to send me an email, Mr. Dan, you might want to switch to Hotmail.

this courtyard is for like the whoreyard, or boreyard, or pooryard!

My brother is going to Texas A&M in the next four weeks, so he is looking for an apartment in College Station. He accidentally found a review for one particular apartment online (oddly titled "Chimmy Chungas." It was written by some dude from Korea, so it doesn't make any goddamn sense, but it is one of the funniest things I've ever read.

My "get-up-and-go" has just hit the last bus to Party Town USA but the roads are pretty icy I hope he doesn't get hurt

I made about half of that new comic the other day, then I decided that I was lazy and stopped. I'll finish it tomorrow probably. If you want a sneak preview of the first four panels, you should just imagine what you think they might be and then surprise yourself by looking at me site in a few days to see if you were right. What if you are? Wouldn't that be cool? Oh YEAH.
My friend Paul, who has an extremely crappy LiveJournal site, decided to learn Flash animation and then teach me to use it. Expect to see Flash animations composed of obnoxious rotating pictures of large bald men on my site, undoubtedly accompanied by a repeating four-second clip of "Birdman Kicked My Ass" by Wesley Willis.

The world is ending, and I feel just totally great

The title of this post has a double meaning. First of all, I would like to let everyone know that I am phasing out "" I'm not doing this because I'm ending the comic. Quite on the contrary, in fact... I'm actually going to move the comic to a new site! It will be called "" See, it's more descriptive that way, and people aren't all like "what's valuedan mean" and I won't have to shrug at them even though they can't see me shrugging because they can't actually see me. Now when people think of Biscuits for Breakfast, they will think of the site "," not some crappy "" piece of crap.
I'll also be sure to change the front page to something completely different to notify all my past viewers when the site changes, and then I'll go about the business of pimping my comic out to random people on the "Inter."
Also, I saw "War of the Worlds." It's a pretty good movie, but my only complaints are that it ended too abruptly, and that the aliens were just stupid as hell for waiting for a million years for humans to get advanced technology before attacking, and not even taking diseases into account. I mean, c'mon aliens. A million years.
And before you idiots start complaining to me that the story was originally written by H.G. Wells like 100 years ago, you should just shut your mouths (or... break your... hands) and not do that.
I would also like to mention that I somehow got a copy of Flash the other day, and once I learn how to use it, Biscuits for Breakfast is totally going to go animated-style. That means I'll have to break out the sound-recording equipment and finally decide whether Gorsky should sound like Edward Norton or not. I really hope he doesn't, because it would be really hard to get Edward Norton to come over to my house.

Guest comics go here now

The guy that the Spelling Bunny is based off of sent me this picture he made a few days ago. He is also the author of one of my guest comics, so if you look hard enough you might find out what his actual name is. You have to look really, really hard, though.
On an unrelated note, my electric guitar seems to be shocking me whenever I use it. It's not like a sudden shock, it's more like a constant electrical current running through the strings. It's rather unpleasant to use. Anyone out there know why this is happening?
