      Guess what, amigos?

      I've got twenty watchers, that's right. Here's a celebratory Caboose for all you kool kats (because we all know k's are cooler than c's and sit at the table with all the real cool kids--but not the d's, they're just dicks):

      No, Caboose, look at the camera. The camera, it's right--oh forget it. This is as close as we're gonna get.

      In other news, the very cool SailorTweek has started a group that everyone should check out and chip in, even just once. No special skills or artistry required, I promise--only need to bring the fun.
      (And I'm slacking off there already, but only since I've been too busy updating this comic. That has to give me an ironic exemption, right?)



      RIP Tucker's rock. And... tree next to Tucker's rock.

      What's up, guys?
      If you check out the comic's website, you'll see the front page got a bit of an upgrade. And lookie there, a character page (as if these poor rejects needed any introduction.)

      "Brown Chicken, Black Cow"
      By the way, anybody who doesn't want to be left hanging this chapter better stop reading right about...





      Oh, shit.

      So, I've moved into a new pad, and for the first time in three years I have actual high-speed internet. The roomie/bro wants me to get back into WoW, although I wonder if I should get a 360 instead and play on sexbox Live like all the cool kids do.

      Ah, the life-stealing possibilities. Hit me with y'all's suggestions, if ye please.

      So how 'bout that horde Immersion? That was fun as hell (and almost as hot. But there's the South for ya--you learn to love it. Or learn to love bitching about it.) I'm that brown-haired girl head-bobbin' in the background at 2:14, and then at 2:20. Two seconds of zombie fame, woo!
      I think my favorite part of the shoot had to be standing around waiting on a take, everybody sweating their makeup off and half-starved for lunch, and then hearing Gus quip, "Filming shit sucks, doesn't it?"

      Seriously though, it was a rockin' time. But I'm sure y'all are readin' this journal for more comics, so let's get to that.



      Something else I'm grateful to Chris for: coming up with good Donut one-liners. =P

      I feel like I should mark this occasion with a journal. Since I spend so many good times with them--years, even--game consoles and computers have served as odd milestones in my life, making the passing of one notable.

      Tonight I decided to let my home PC idle while I took a before-work nap, and I woke up about an hour later to the beeping death-throes of my machine. Ten minutes of troubleshooting (and extra nap) later, I realized that all was lost--the harddrive was toast.
      It was a Lenovo Thinkcentre, a strange offshoot of IBM that had those big old-school initials branded into the tower, along with a 3-1/4" floppy drive and a noisy fan that sometimes wouldn't quit buzzing until I nudged the front panel with my foot. I bought that computer refurbished off Newegg back in 2008 (2007?), and its 2.8GHz Intel processor and 1GB of RAM have served me well for the price, all considered.

      It's not a catastrophic loss, really. I've been prepared for this eventuality since last year, when I barely recovered the machine from a nasty virus. It never quite ran the same since, so I invested in a 500GB external drive to back up all my files. Eventually I forewent the occasional back-up and just started saving everything to it by default, so in terms of documents/images/etc I've lost virtually nothing. And I still have my laptop, even if that's not quite the same.

      The timing is convenient, at least. Since my brother-in-law just bought a brand-spankin'-new PC, I stand to inherit his old e-Machine, a computer with a very... interesting history. That motherfucker survived Hurricane Rita back in 2005. Even after the room it was in got smashed by a tree, and its casing got plastered with rain, leaves and fiberglass insulation, all my bro did was brush it off, plug it in and it worked fine. He's been playing World of Warcraft and watching porn on it to this day.

      This is also a noteworthy occasion because it makes the--fifth? Sixth? I think I lost count--computer that my scanner has survived, and I hang on to computers for years until those suckers give up the ghost. My scanner is huge, dusty, loud and ancient, and it's been running like a beauty since 1997 (every time I try to go around and cheat on it with another scanner, my drawings just haven't come out the same.) The first computer I hooked it up to was an IBM Aptiva running Windows 95, and my scanner has always worked hand-in-hand with Microsoft Image Composer 1.5, an art program I got off a disc (that I also still have) for Frontpage 98. They're what I use for all my artwork, including comics.

      Ah, good times.

      So now my poor scanner's bereft of a PC companion, again. I guess I'll have to find another way to scan stuff until I get a replacement in line.

      So, chapter two is officially started. I'm not gonna lie; this is going to be one of my favorites.



      You might notice a couple of things different with these pages. The first is that I finally figured out a fix for my font problem, and I'll be slowly going back over the first chapter and fixing all the speech bubbles there, too.

      The other, more obvious (perhaps, just a little) change is the handiwork of my new partner, Chris Godwin (no relation to another Godwin we might know. Unless he's not telling me something), also known as Nero_Maxim on this site. Chris is the man awesome enough to deal with my shitty linework loan his coloring skills to the comic, and he's been a huge help so far. This chapter might start out a lil' rough as we get our styles in sync, but I'm really happy to have Chris on board, and I totally look forward to working together. So check out his page and give 'im some props, if you're so inclined.

      Now, time to go eat a half-thawed tv dinner and pass the fuck out.

      So then, RTX was amazing. RvB Season 9 is gonna be a complete and total blast (er, the good kind of blast. Not the bad, explody kind.) And the RT crew are some of the friendliest and most awesome people on the planet.

      But you guys already knew that, right? You definitely didn't need to take my word for it.

      I didn't expect the community aspect of the event to be a highlight for me, since I'm a pretty reclusive person. Hell, I was --->this<--- close to not showing up for the shoot on Sunday and just holing up at the hotel to draw, but now I'm totally glad I attended, and I'm even happier that I got to meet so many kickass community members and hang out with them on Sidequest(s) and stuff. So, this is a shout-out to all the people I met and befriended this weekend--you guys rock, and I hope we get to hang out again sometime.
      (Also, to the dude from Italy who was watching me draw Saturday: you're totally cool as well, and I feel crummy about losing your name. I hope to find you somehow!)

      Although it was a pretty busy weekend, whenever I got any downtime I was doodling, as usual. I did a bit of comic work, a drawing I ended up giving away and then this concept that made it home with me:

      The best part, of course, was that I managed not to kill myself or my fellow motorists on my trip, and only spent 2.15 hours being lost!
      That's gotta be like a 20G achievement, right?

      "...nobody cares about ninety percent of what you have to say."

      That's something my dad said to me, once, and it stuck with me ever since. He wasn't being mean or critical at the time, or even directing it at me (well, he could have... I wish he'd said it to me when I was a lot younger, so I would've made less of an embarrassment of myself as a child.) It really was a generalized pearl of wisdom, and when I look back, it goes a long way to explaining that taciturn nature of his that used to drive my chatty mother crazy. I sometimes wish I was that wise, to know how to keep my mouth shut until I actually have something interesting/important/funny to say. Better to be quiet and uninteresting than loud and boring?
      ...Wait, I fucked that up.

      At least that's the reason I don't mention my personal life or my job much in my journals--it's boring me to even think about that stuff, much less type it out. And I bother even less with my opinions, since what good are those?
      But guess what: you guys are outta luck tonight, because I'm in a chatty (typey? texty? sexy) mood.

      By the way, I found my favorite youtube comment of the week:

      today after school i saw a blue car
      and yelled
      the guy drove away
      and had a bumper sticker that said red vs blue
      i knew then
      that he knew what i meant

      Speaking of RvB, I'm going to put on my rant hat. I know there's forums and shit that discuss this to death, but I'm not crazy or bored enough (yet) to sift through like 500 pages of threads to jump in on that shiz.

      It seems to me a lot of Wash fangirls are never too bothered by the fact that he's, y'know, directly responsible for the "deaths" (a very loose term in this series) of four major cast members--including Alpha and Tex--on top of a shitload of other AI. It's easy to forgive him for Lopez and Donut, at least, since everyone can agree that's his crowning moment of badass. The part that itches me--about Reconstruction, anyway--is that, for someone who claimed he was stopping the Meta and getting revenge on behalf of himself, his friends and the Alpha, he was pretty okay with recruiting Alpha on a suicide mission, exploiting both Church's super-motherfucking-denial and his desire to find Tex in the process. It wasn't even one of those typical abuses of the phrase, where "suicide mission" really means "if we fuck up we die"--it was literally suicide, where Alpha getting emp-nuked was one of the *winning* conditions.

      It's not that Wash isn't the hero of that season, or that we don't want him to succeed--because we do, right? It's just funny how little he regards the well-being--or, hell, continued existence--of one of the people he's allegedly fighting for. But then, maybe that's exactly it: Wash doesn't see AI as people. He shouldn't care if Alpha understands what he's really doing because AI are expendable non-entities and it's not the same as duping a real person into running decoy for you into a nuclear blast.

      And maybe that's a valid sentiment. And it was for a good cause--or at the least, well-intended revenge.

      But man, is it a dick move when you think it.

      (Or maybe it's really frustrating because after everything, the whole plan was in vain--there's the bleak comedy of it. And then Wash did get sent to prison, so that's just enough punishment for his good intentions.)

      But I'm not hatin'! I like Wash's character, and I love how Reconstruction ended.
      I'm just. Sayin'.

      tl;dr I'm bored and lazy and stuck at work. Less talk more action, internet. Also, any excuse to link tvtropes is a good one.
