Updated the Webcomics page.

The request was made, and I’m honestly not that interested in doing anything more strenuous today than frying up that turkey skin.  Which I did, with salt and butter.  And it was good.  So I updated the page.

OK, that made more sense in my head.

This is the Coolest Thing, for a given value of “Coolest Thing.” @shaenongarrity

Specifically, the Coolest Thing that is at the intersection of Kolchak – The Night StalkerThe X-Files; and Shaenon Garrity’s incredibly fun Monster of the Week webcomic (last link explains the tag line).

scully-kolchak

I am not saying that you have to be as enthusiastic as I am about Scully dressed as Kolchak; but if you plan to read this site very often then you probably should accept the fact that, yes, this is what I am all about. (more…)

“Any day that I don’t learn a new thing…”

“…is a day I wasted my time.”

:pause:

I actually essentially agree with this.  For example, today I learned a couple of things about the nature of Teflon that should hopefully make it easier for me to maintain my pots for longer without destroying them.  Every little bit helps when it comes to staving off the heat death of the universe.

Death Valley land-battleships on monster-truck wheels?

…OK.  FineYes, I’d go see that.

And I’m not g0ing to feel guilty about that, either.  I’m a philistine, and proud of it; and while I have absolutely nothing against people who go to the movies because they want to see something that will make them think, I am not one of those people.  I think quite enough all day as it is, thanks; when I go into a film typically I want to turn off my brain for a bit.

So low-brow me there, dude.

So THAT’s what happened to Scary-go-Round’s Erin Winters.

I was starting to wonder.  And wonder what she was doing back in Bad Machinery.

What?  Sorry.  Webcomic stuff.

Wow. Today’s Something Positive… resonates… with me.

It’s resonating (language warning, not to mention basic worldview) quite comprehensively.

Can’t imagine why, of course.

[UPDATE]: Forgot to say: no, there’s nothing more enraging than pity.

…Oh, hai, Krosp.

I was just remarking to my wife that we hadn’t seen you in the comic for a while; and there you are.  You fit in… surprisingly well, really.

PS: Nice hat.

“…Dunno. How BORED did hyu say hyu vos?”

Punchline to today’s Girl Genius.  Man, I love these guys…

…but I’m starting to wonder when the webcomic is going to actually reach some sort of climax.  I think that we’re somewhere in Act III, or maybe the beginning of Act IV; and the Foglios are very, very good at this sort of thing.  Still, if they were thinking about dragging it out I would argue that they shouldn’t, largely because I’d rather see the comic get wrapped up rather than lose any quality.

Yeah, I know, I know: who asked me?

Now there is some quality game-mastering, right there.

Because while a self-inflicted Total Party Kill has its charms, it’s very wasteful to let it happen in the first couple of game sessions.  You need to let them build up to it on their own.  So that it’s personalCathartic, really.

Annnnnnd that’s why GMs still do the ‘roll to see if you see the panther in the tree‘ line.  Or, rather, sometimes why they do it.  It’s a handy hint to get people’s heads back on a swivel.

QotD, Presumably SOMEBODY Out There Doesn’t Edition.

Today’s Full Frontal Nerdity:

“It’s a good distraction for the guards.  Also, we hate mimes.”

…Not much else to say there, really.

Wow, this was a brazen attempt at theft.

I mean, it’s fine to subscribe to a RSS feed, obviously; and it’s even OK to aggregate a bunch of RSS feeds.  But to aggregate a bunch of webcomic RSS feeds, rip the images off of them, turn the result into an app, and then sell advertising on it… bad form, AdultComix.  Very, very bad form.

Via Darths & Droids, which is one of the comics being ripped off… and who is not happy about it at all.  I wonder how strict Australian copyright law is? – Well, I guess that we’ll find out…

Ah, today’s Bad Machinery’s up… oh.

Oh, dear.  This type of story rarely ends well.  It’s folklore, you understand.
