There’s a 94% chance that if you yourself don’t love the rain that I don’t love you at all.
Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world I’m turning inside out
I’m floating around in ecstasy
So don’t stop me now, don’t stop me
Cause I’m having a good time, having a good time
– “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen
So, yeah, that card game I’ve been working on for over two years, unofficially called Paranormal Activity, is going through its fourth iteration. But that’s okay because I’m finally at a place where I think 1) the rules work and 2) the game is fun. Granted, I’ve only playtested it two times in the past 730 days because I’m not pushy about it. Also, this is where I will lament my losership and severe lack of friends.
Anyways, with the rules nearly where I want them, I’ve gone and redesigned certain card types to make it easier to understand and less cluttered:
The game is a clear mix of Munchkin, Magic the Gathering, and Star Wars CCG. Hopefully, one day, every one of you readers will get to play it. It’ll probably be completed in 2089. You know, when I’ll be dead. Until then, keep an eye out for ghosts. Mine especially.
Here’s a sneak peek at the very first Supertown comic:
This is the beginning of the first chapter called “Bugs in the War Room,” wherein Will and Kyle settle into their new digs and attempt to take out their very first supervillain. Spoiler alert: it’s not Eye-Boy.
The reason I’m posting this here is that I’m applying for a comic site at The Rampage Network, and they require a sample strip as part of the application process (hi, Rampagers!). So wish me luck, everybody, because it’d be a fun place to host Supertown and would feel much more like a comic website than other providers do…and it’d save me a lot of hassle as I know nothing when it comes to formatting webpages. ::crosses fingers::
I’m gonna take some time
To sift through this conflicted time
And figure out why I can’t sleep

This probably won’t make any sense to those that have never played Assassin’s Creed before, but the above situation happens at least once per every play session, with a true average of three or four times in the end. Stupid rocks.
And it’s hard to explain
That all the things I’ve known are feeling strange
I guess I’ll always have tradition
To fall back on
– “Krazy Glue” by Less Than Jake
That’s William, a.k.a Willpower. He’s quite a character (pun intended).
One of the interesting–and challenging–aspects to my forthcoming webcomic Supertown is that I’m drawing characters without noses, ears, arms, and legs. Older women will be retaining their boobs to please the pervs. That means, when it comes to emotion and such, I have eyes, eyebrows, and a mouth to work with, as well as the occasion action line or body twist. Challenging, sure, but it’s amazing actually at how much can be accomplished in a matter of a few lines.
Either way, I’m really looking forward to getting this online. Will keep y’all posted.
Boy, you’re gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitations
And in the middle of the celebrations I break down

I dunno… felt like drawing the latest weekend in terms of journal comics again because I do miss doing them from time to time despite having no future plans of returning to them:
How did your weekend turn out?
I made it through another day
Having a wonderful time
I haven’t felt the sickness
I think i may have scared it away
Looks like I’m gonna be fine
