Stricken from the record and deemed inadmissable

Sam doesn't mention it in today's strip, but readers who have good memories (or the motor skills necessary to click a mouse) will remember the name of the woman he is talking to from her only previous appearance.

After hours of toil and deliberation, I have managed to make a mix CD. That guy from High Fidelity has got nothing on me. It's all about the transitions, man. Does this song start with a drum riff similar to the ending of the previous song? Is this song a similar style to the last, but slightly faster? Or is it slower, but in the same key? Is it time to go for the extreme contrast transition, jumping from a slow quiet song to a loud fast one? Or has that been overused?

I have a problem. I also, however, have a mix CD. I was going for a generally up-tempo pop-rock mix with occasional injections of other music styles to stop it from getting too monotonous. This is what I wound up with. Am I the first person ever to follow up a song by Converge with a song by ELO? That would be neat.

The postman hangs on oh so tight

The Employability storyline ends on Friday. I think I have sufficiently alienated any new readers who are unfamiliar with Sam and Alexa's relationship, break-up and vague reconciliation. Good thing the archives are free, eh?

I feel like I've been a bit of a plug-machine lately, but there seem to be a lot of webcomics in need of talking about these days. Congratulations to Dayfree drone VG Cats for hitting the big 1-0-0 this week. Also, congrtulations to Pihakwa for being crazy.

Just look at the stuff in the artist's gallery. Those creatures are great! I swear I have tried to draw exactly those kinds of things before, myself. But mine were bad. Too bad to display. Even on the internet.

E is for empire, R is for revenue

Welcome to May, friends. It's a good month to be a Sam and Fuzzy reader -- a month that that will see the strip's two year anniversary, as well as (finally) the arrival of the Ninja Mafia shirts.

Now that I am done classes, I have more time available to do art commissions. If you want something drawn, I am your man. Your man who draws things.
