Simon is a Fortress: Ameritrash staff cartoonist.
Too true, Simon.
Is this saying MJ is an "Emo" kid (based on the modern interpretation of that term), a black metaller (the corpsepaint), or a cubist figure? OR ALL THREE?
Also, the turtleneck t-shirt kind of freaks me out.
I'm guessing emo 'cuz the turtleneck is so not black metal...although he does look like Abbath...maybe it was cold outside that day.
I do seem to remember mj stating he wears loafers.
I think that mjl's dialogue here is probably one of the funniest things ever. I'll have to remember to end more sentences with "therefore soul rain."
Michael, that's the reason for the mask. He's bald, and if he wears that turtleneck he looks like a broken condom! ;D
I'm with MJ. That game looks like agony.
I didn't know MJ was a goth wrestler. I think Eugene is turning a little more into Schweig! every cartoon, or at least he's becoming more and more human... and Sanlldefanso is right, that is some kick ass dialogue you've given him.
He fucking dick and then bullshit, therefore soul rain.
Has Eugene always parted his hair on both sides?
I really wish Schweig's interpretation of Pete Ruth would bust in on this scene, with his purple robe and AK-47, like some kind of neo-con Kool-Aid Man.
I too enjoyed the dialogue. So much so that I sought out several natural text to voice translations to play them.
Proper British Poetry Reading
Deeper American English
I ask the links are only good for 10 minutes. >:(
Use this to copy and paste "The game agony. The rules miasma. The pieces despair, therefore soul rain"
Ask, and ye shall receive
Oh man, that's priceless, Schweig. I'm laughing at so many different things at once. Painting MJ as an emo-hipster is an awesome mix of absurdity and burn. Your razzing-fu is strong.
I know almost nothing about "emo" accept Sage Francis, who I like, is apparently and "emo rapper" whatever the fuck that is. What is the difference between emo and goth, for those in the know.
Hipster I understand. Our bass player is plagued with this affliction.
Question: "How many hipsters does it take to screw in a light bulb?"
Answer: "Huh, you mean you don't know?"
I like mjl1783, by the way.
Actually he's wearing a wig.
uba made him get it.
Goth is an aesthetic, emo is a state of mind.
hipsters also wear ironic t-shirts
This is a classic (especially since I understand it), I can just about imagine this happening.
Does the Pilsbury Doughboy count?
I think the cartoon looks a lot more flattering.
mjl is a hippie!?
He mentioned his "hair down to my ass" before. Plus he loves the Beatles...
I figure right wing hippie.
and he accuses me of being the pothead.
Iggy? Is that you?
He could not be a hippie. His nails are too well kept. That, or he's a hippie that knows that women like trimmed nails on men.
I'd smoke with him.
haaaawesome! nice locks!
NEEDS MORE JUGGALO!!!!!
MJ looks older than southernman.
Here's MJ playing guitar back when he was in Carcass:
I busted a gut reading that toon, Schweig.
OK, nerd detail question: Does the table REALLY have notches in it to hold the game pieces, or is that just my eyesight decieving me?
Those are supposed to be knotholes.
