Alright, I fucking hate my computer! It's got low memory, Dial up, And it fucking freezes more than a n00b makes Britney Spears/Michael Jackson jokes! When I had tried to get rid of one of my computers three flaws, (Dial Up) I called up AOL. They said they were going to put a broadband line or some shit out here…It's been a year or two since I called, No goddamn broadband! People tell me “If your computers keeps freezing then just go buy a new one.” ….What the hell!? With what money!? I'm friggin unemployed here, too young to get a job, I can't even work as a Win-Dixie bagboy! And the closest place to get a job is at the gas station nearby but they sell beer and you have to be over 21 to work there (So I have been told by my elders -_-).

Being young sucks! Can't drink, Can't drive, Can't watch porn (with others in the room), It's insane! People have said to cherish your youth, bullshit there's absolutely nothing about my youth that I should cherish! I'm living in a house full of 40-70 year old women, The only game systems I have are a PS2 and Nintendo DS(both bought with my own money), And I don't even make an allowance (yet still forced to do stuff around the house) Cook! Clean! Do the mother fucking laundry! Once I'm 18 I'm getting the hell out of here, renting an apartment, earn money for college, and finish this worthless and pathetic excuse for a life! God damned childhood!

Arrrrrrgh! Having dual skill and perspective in a mono-perception, singular skill world!

Should I explain that or just let it squat here as enigmatic as a toad on codeine?

I've worked for many years to develop both graphic skills and writing skills, though my writing skills definitely outstrip my graphic ability. Still, I'm a dab hand at using a pencil and getting on page something that looks pretty much the way I want it to look.

What gets to me are the people who think that because they can correctly spell their own name two tries out of three that they know how to write or have any real idea of just what words can do to reality and with reality in our world. Most people, however, simply have no idea.

I've just engaged in extended, and borderline acrimonious debate, with established artists who are comparative neophyte writers - and I'm being both kind and overly generous here – and I experienced that terribly frustrating sensation of trying to hammer new concepts into a series of stone walls.

So . . . arrrrrrrrgh!

My rant is about the mods on this forum.

Listen, what the hell is worse? What a person says, or how they say it?

I swear, yeah, so the fuck what? People swear. If I swear while saying someone is being a tool, I get warns and PM's and blah blah blah. But if someone says without swearing that my wife should leave me because I don't really love her… well for some fucking reason that's okay.

Wake the fuck up.

Wake the fuck up.
It's the unambiguousness of the language I'd say. That way of saying it is about nothing except “fighting words”, and it's very obvious. Whereas other ways of saying it are only offensive if taken a certain way, and even if they are entirely offensive, at least they don't look that way.

Come on TNT, I've seen you get people's backs up without a single offensive word, if you want you can bury a clever insult with the best of them! :)

rant: I bet Glarg isn't even a real Mexican. What a con -_-

That's my whole point, Ozone. Why is the swear offensive, instead of what the person is actually saying? Man, I don't get that.

Why in hades does it take me such a long time to figure out what I am doing wrong?!

In this DD incarnation I started up a daily political strip and then pulled it off of DD just as it was approaching the fifty uploads mark merely because I got some artistic criticism from visitors that I wasn't in the mood to accept at the time. But this is not what's bugging me. I'm used to being a bit flaky and emotionally unstable.

What's bothering me is that I did not recognize the pattern, the signs of stress until it was too late to halt the downward slide into a major screwup. You see, it's not the slam into the ground of reality at high speed that gnarls my knurd but the fact that I should have seen what was happening to me before it happened.

Sigh! Ah well, so it goes.

Yeah I got that subcultured. I just don't quite know where my brain was – probably out hitching a ride to Alaska just to admire the sights or something like that.

You got a shot? :)

Sorry man, but that's quite funny. Haha! You got a few scratches and then you went and had a needle as well? Man! In pain and you're out of pocket for the injection. Ah, life is cruel.

On top of that, you probably didn't need the needle either, just something on the surface to sterilise the wounds. Still: ouch.

That doesn't mean I don't sympathise. I do. That's bad luck man :(

You would probably sink into deep, dark depression for a year or two and then while trying to alleviate boredom, latch onto something else that challenges your mind.

Comments and e-mails have slowed down on penis again. I got one e-mail asking something like a week ago and now I'm down to one/two comments again. Last week one comic got ten which is nice because all of them were on topic and had comments relative to what was going on there. My hits are about the same, but it grinds my gears when I got nothing to reply to the next day or read e-mails or “private quacks” from people. A lot of the best discussions about my work is between me and one other person. I gave up those god damn instant message things for the second time, and hopefully I can avoid that.

Hits from last week started off pretty low, peaked, then started dropping off again. So lets hope it peaks back up to the 500 range. I've started giving less and less of a shit about my ranking since the people in the top ain't go anywhere (unless they actually leave and go somewhere) and others have money supporting their web comics, so I can't hardly compete with that. Still I keep doing my dick jokes.

Numbers from last week:
10-11-2007

140
10-10-2007

390
10-9-2007

490
10-8-2007

540
10-7-2007

390
10-6-2007

380
10-5-2007

310

I'd like to rant about my brain, for it made me create a comic with a punchline too similar to something i'd forgotten i'd read 6 months ago. Bad brain, bad!

I will say only one thing:
Animating is slow…and I'm worried I've already lost many readers.

lol if I survive the depression.

Which I probably would. Man… I remember especially between age 12-20 I was just crazy self harming suicidal as shit and had a drinking problem that caused my liver to be inflamed a bit.

Comments and e-mails have slowed down on penis again.

lol your “low” is like the “high” pageview day I get on MAG-ISA. Maybe PENIS is an older comic and it gained more attention in the webcomic world because of your princess jen prank you did (which was fucking awesome btw… DO IT AGAIN!!!).

Or perhaps its just OLD shit by now and nobody finds it interesting anymore. I remember my comic was more more popular than any comic I've done after that. Well… guess the iron is no longer hot and maybe I've offended people with the rants I sometimes put in my authors notes and some pms/email I sent that were meant to HELP and NOT OFFEND.

Animating is slow…and I'm worried I've already lost many readers.

I know what you mean. It takes 5 days to do a 5 minute animation.

And readers? Yeah you're probably right. But I think it will pick up after you pump in about 5 pages.

Or maybe try making a NEW comic. People will still most likely check it out since its written by the same person who made vampire phantasm which they liked. There's an author factor involved.

However with new comics, you might gain the same fate I had when I ended shattered hate and started new stuff.

Nothing to whine about, really, but I just can't seem to post the right things on forums any more. A lot of people have been taunting what I've been postings on forums.

… Uh… I kinda feel better now.

I have a fuckton of work to do. I have three animations to complete, one for tomorrow, one for Monday and one for god knows when. The problem is that I can't work on them now, the first because it's a joint effort and one of the people I was working with is sick and the other is currently at home, where I can't contact her to tell her we didn't take enough shots (also the drama student who agreed to help us out disappeared) and I'm not sure how flexible the tutor is yet (on the other hand, this would be a good opportunity to find out). The other I can't do because it's not dark enough, but by the time it is I'll be too tired to get it right because I was kept awake last night by a bunch of twats yelling and drinking at one o'clock in the fucking morning on. a. Sunday. The day they're supposed to spend recovering from Saturday. Do these people never stop? Do they ever sleep? Guh. The last one I have no idea about, beyond that it is there. I'm going to have to find one of the tutors tomorrow, which in this place could take years.

Oh, ooooooh, this is classic. The non sick partner works in the cafe on campus and has done for three or four years, what's great about this is that a person she argued with about religion (she is, he isn't) still hates her and yells at her whenever he gets the chance. This started three years ago. Anyway, today we were in the drama area, looking for the other student, now he's a drama student as well, so we kept running into him. Now this wouldn't bother me usually, because I don't like to get in the middle of things like this, but I had a camera with me and didn't bloody record it. A shame, because it was one of the most hilarous things I've ever seen, he was shouting ‘EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES! EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES!!!!!’ in his horrible accent, not seeing the irony at all.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

dude, marine,
you know what i would give to get some of those numbers? i know probably for you it is pretty annoying to get only a comment or two and be down into 140 but the highest my comic has ever hit is 160. i guess i'm just is you should at least be a little grateful that you have that kind of success because some comics don't (and never will). on the other hand i do know what you mean, once you taste those big numbers its hard to be satisfied with something less. but you are totally right about those on top not going anywhere. so clearly the only course of action is to stop them…

Hell, it'd be great to know that there's at least one dedicated reader for mine…

Outside my teacher, for whose class I'm doing my current comic for.

Okay, since I feel on the subject, I hate it when people say they don't like it, yet they don't tell you why. It's not the flaming “OMG tis is stoopud” sort of thing, but when you write something (I write stories outside of comicking), and you show it to a friend, and they reply “Meh.” Sure, it's nice to get something outside of the normal friend worship thing, but when someone replies “Meh” to something you wrote (or draw or whatever) and don't actually provide why (or even promising to review it later, and DON'T), it's just frustrating. It's like “Okay, it sucks, so what do I have to do to make it better?” "Meh, I don't really effin' care, man. I'll read it, but don't expect me to provide any bloody input."

Happens to all of us.

When you your comic, it gets a good boost, but most of the people stop viewing it. Unless it's REALLY good like mine.

Srsly.
