I have to admit I was a bit nervous trying to come up with an idea to follow Monday's strip. I had received so much positive feedback for what I felt was a relatively simple notion, I felt pressure to one-up my previous effort. If today's strip is a case of over-kill, I wouldn't know it. I've been stressing too much to see past it.
All things the same, I think it turned out pretty well. Can you figure out all the geek-related material I'm spoofing? They're all pretty easy to identify. I was going to label them in the blog, but then I realized my audience isn't a gaggle of dum-dums. Thank God for that!
Like everyone else, when seeing The Matrix Reloaded, the question isn't "If" but "When"? I'm trying to figure it out. Part of me would like to be in line Thursday night - to experience that anticipation like the event it is. Then I step back and realize that I'm supposed to be responsible and go to work on Friday. That, coupled with the fact I would draw Friday's strip Thursday night all but nix the option to see it opening day.
Fortunately, one of the side-effects of being responsible is being patient. I can wait - barely.
I'd like to point out that posters are still for sale and that if you would like to support the site, PLEASE BUY ONE! We're nearly reached the half way point, now let's finish strong!
I've received several orders through the mail - checks, money orders and cash. So if you're not comfortable mailing a payment through PayPal, e-mail me and we can make other arrangements!
Last thing I'll mention: I know I've talked about it a million times before. But I am very close to bringing back the forum.
Early fans of the site might remember I had one for a month or two, then put the kibosh on it when I decided the readership wasn't large enough to support it. I've always maintained that I would bring it back if I felt it could stand on it's own two legs. It looks like that time is rapidly approaching. So get ready for that.
Oh, I almost forgot. If you're not too busy, could you be sure to vote for Theater Hopper at TWC? I'm inching up on Montana Hills and would love to settle in to the number 13 spot on the list sometime soon. Lucky 13!
We're kind of booked here in the E.R. You need to see someone in our newly opened Geek Trauma Center.
'Tis but a scratch!
