Welcome to the man who wanted everything but couldn't have it

Well, here we are at the first update of Sam and Fuzzy's third year. It's been an absolute joy for me to watch my little black and white baby grow from a sketchy mess with four regular readers into the MIGHTY WEBCOMIC BEHEMOTH that it is today.

OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration. But I swear, sometimes that's what this site feels like to me and you guys are the reason why. I couldn't have done it without the fans who emailed and encouraged me to keep it up, the webcartoonists who befriended me and helped me get this thing off the ground, the folks whose dual penchants for t-shirts and original art have transformed the site from an income drain to an income supplement, and of course, the Ashton, my insane code-monkey buddy who has kept this site running smooth and minty fresh. This is as good a time as any to say, "Thanks guys! You're awesome."

And with that out of the way, it's time to go back to taking you all for granted. BA-DUMP TSH!

The fanart gallery has been updated with a whack of new items -- one of which is in fact related to the two-year anniversary. If you too feel the urge to create some commemerative fan art for the occassion, it's not too late yet. But it will be soon. No pressure.

Bauer Power Hour

24's season finale was brilliant -- definitely an ending worthy of the show's best season. Expect me to plug this show repeatedly when the third season is released on DVD in September. If you missed it on TV you have to see it on DVD. The next season doesn't begin until January of 2005, so you'll have four months to get caught up. And once you are caught up, you'll definitely be thankful that you only had to wait four months for season four, instead of eight like moi.

Ninja Mafia shirt sales are pretty close. The "3 Ninja" shirt is in the lead by a few shirts, but surprisingly, most people have been buying the two pack. Apparently you people like your ninjas as much as you like your communism. I'm cool with that.

The great big nil

The Ninja Mafia shirts have arrived. Try to remember back when you thought the Ninja Mafia was cool, back before you saw one in a mini skirt.

Thursday is the official date of Sam and Fuzzy's two-year anniversary. I don't have anything special planned, other than finally getting around to updating the long-ignored fanart gallery.

There is a new Slipknot album coming out tommorrow. The band has been the subject of much debate lately. I mean, debate besides the usual one about whether or not they suck. Now personally, I think the band is pretty decent. I don't think it's really worth getting extensively into my reasons why -- to make a long story short, there as just a lot more talent in Slipknot then one would expect from a "nu metal" band of nine grown men who prance around in masks.

I'd like to think the new album proves it. Compared to their earlier work, Volume 3: The Subliminal Verses is infinitely tighter, startling more complex and varied, and much, much more interesting. It's still heavy, but not all of the time. The band tries a lot of new things here, and most of them turned out very well. Of course, some fans don't want diversity on a Slipknot album -- especially if it means the addition of, heaven forbid, a ballad or two.

But don't believe the hype, kids. This is a heavy album. Please do not buy it for your grandmother because you heard Slipknot went pop. She isn't going to like it.
