Yea, that about sums up how I feel. 'tsukareru' - tired. And the real push isn't until next week when I actually move into the new apartment. Between the move, deadlines at work, and drawin stuff for the comic, it's been a busy, busy week.
I'm keeping it short today (how often have i said that before? no, don't tell me...) - I guess I just can't resist the compulsion to yabber endlessly.
I get a lot of emails asking me what the link for that True Love Story short illustrated story 'envelope' is located. Well, here it is, go read it if you haven't yet ^_^. I should have linked to it on valentines day, since it's a sappy, cute little romantic story. Oh, I enabled the 'larger versions' of the images so you can take a closer look at my crappy line work.
Last night, around 2:30 am i was just about to upload today's comic when the little megagremlins decided to take my box down hard. It froze up like me at a high school dance when i was a kid. I didn't think it was a big deal because i didn't really loose anything - i just had to reboot and upload. For some reason, when i rebooted, my cable modem wouldn't connect. In fact, no matter how often i rebooted. The little like labeled 'cable' would blink a half dozen times then go out. I think the expression on my face was much akin to the meth for dummies strip... there was nothing I could do but go to bed and try to upload the comic from work the next day.
luckily, the folks down at MediaOne/Comcast seem to have fixed whatever was wrong back at the Big House, and I have my connection this morning. Which leads me to the next thing i have to say... if you are a raver who enjoys those zombie-like states that come from excessive dancing, smoke, and lack of oxygen at raves, be sure to email largo about it. It's all his fault.
Considering my workload this week, i'm amazed that we've been able to pull off comics all week. We have one more very special guest comic that is slated to run next wednesday... coincidentally the day i will be offline completely. Mr. Poe is a bad man, that's all i have to say...
ugh. the hatemail from ravers is flowing in... (sigh) Hey, i'm a huge fan of raver cutlure, and i know that a lot of people (including people like Wing Zero who help out with the comic) are ravers themselves. We are poking fun at the scene, not disrespecting it - in much the same way we poke fun at ourselves and at anime/gaming culture. The largo character is infamous for being insensitive - that doesn't mean that Megatokyo is.
and you should note that piro could almost pass for a raver in todays comic. I did that intentionally. :) Please accept my appologies in advance if this offends. It's a classic case of not realizing a joke might be taken the wrong way.
