Site Stats Are a Mountain to Climb

with 11 comments


Bonus laughs if you know what my last name means in Italian…and bonus bonus laughs if you know the meaning of my first name. Irony is a cruel kitten, and I’ll leave you to your research.

So yeah, seeing as today’s comic is all about site stats and folks reading my journal comics, I’m gonna put on the puppy eyes and ask that if you like my work–which, for all purposes at the moment, is basically a colored journal comic a day–then how about sharing this appreciation with the universe? The truth is I have a very small readership (no crying, I less than three all of you as if you were tuna sandwiches or unagi rolls!), but a little link to here can’t ever hurt and will only assist me in achieving the status of Supreme Being or something akin to that. Plus, I love comments…so let’s get more commenters up in this shack!

This is me sucking a self-promotion. Please help.

I’ll tell you how the story’s told
I always wanted so much more
And way on down the road
I caught a glimpse of the sunlight

#379 – Complex Story

with 6 comments

Yet another example of how strangers just love to say whatever is on their mind when I’m nearby. Anyways, embarrassed and slightly blushing, Tara and I did our best to distance ourselves from this lady. And before you jump to conclusions: No, I don’t beat her up. In public or behind closed doors.

Or do I?

Er, moving on. Some things to post about today:

Thing 1. I’m starting a new fictional webcomic called Fortuitous Twist, but the site is mostly empty for the moment as I’m just in the baby stages of getting it together. I don’t know. I’d like to think if you’re a fan of my journal comics then you’ll like what FT is all about. I’m not gonna lie and say it hasn’t been swimming in my brain for a very long time. Who really knows? How about you just be super awesome and favorite/bookmark/RSS it so I feel loved?

Thing 2. The Girlfriend needs some help. Her laptop is overheating and just not doing generally well. She’s put together a petition that explains why she needs a solid, working machine (comics don’t make themselves, people!). Go sign it here and show your support!

Thing 3. I swear there was a third thing I wanted to post about, but I can’t remember it now. Grrr. I must be getting older or something…

Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans
For nobody

#270 – Arizona Vacation, Part Five

with 13 comments

Luckily, I’m happy to announce that I’m back to loving–and constantly thinking about–videogames. Whew. That’s a relief.

Hey, it’s Friday. TGIF. I prefer FYIF, myself. Go on…figure that acronym out. Anyways, weekend plans? I’ll be dogsitting and catsitting at Pam’s. I predict I will snuggle with Penny (greyhound) until she farts on me, then Cash (Boston terrier) will get all up in my face, the cats will never come out of hiding, and I will watch movies on a really big TV. Woo. Oh, and I plan on getting some work done. Namely novel shtuff.

And here’s a link to a comic strip called WE THE ROBOTS, which I’ve been enjoying the heck out of lately. The artwork is simple yet evocative, and the humor is darker than chocolate. Check it out!
