What are we made out of?

I'm feeling a bit under the weather tonight. I had intended to use this evening to revamp the extremely out-of-date links page and work on some art commissions, but I... er... didn't. Instead, I took a very unproductive nap at Alteka's house. But I'm still feeling a little sick and a lot sleepy. I guess my sinful life of late nights, rock and roll and baking cookies has finally caught up with me.

This just in! Scary Go Round: still awesome. The current storyline compels me to plug, but honestly, I've done it so many times before that I'm running out of nice things to say about John A. I hear he respects fire-fighters and often hugs the elderly.

edit: Why, yes, I did mean to write "third person" in the second panel of today's comic, rather than "first person." I guess I was even sleepier than I thought! Anyhoo, it's fixed now. Rock on!

I might not be the flashiest dresser in the room

The Three Ninjas shirts have gained a sufficiently substatial lead in sales for me to declare them the winner of the Mighty Ninja Shirt Battle. That makes today the last day that the Ninja Van t-shirt will be available for purchase. Today is also the last day for ordering babydoll ts and hoodies in either design. I will miss them all dearly. And so will you if you don't buy one in the next 24 hours. PRESSURE PRESSURE OMG

I was pleasantly surprised by Sonic Advance 3, especially after the two definitively mediocre games that preceeded it. While the third game still has a few too many bottomless pits, hidden spikes and other cheap deaths, the level design is leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessors. The stages are (mostly) memorable and cleverly designed, and at their best, actually approach the quality of the original Genesis games. Sonic Advance 3 is still worse than those classics, but it comes closer to replicating their successes than any handheld Sonic game ever has before. It's good stuff.

America loves Gir

My Invader Zim DVD arrived in the mail on Monday, and I'm really enjoying it. Of course, I've seen these cartoons a million times already, but it's worth it just for the DVD quality picture and sound. Not to mention the extremely entertaining audio commentary tracks from the creators, which -- despite some pretty heavy editing -- are still full of jaded jabs at Nickelodeon for censoring (and eventually cancelling) the show.

It's amazing to hear just how bitter creator Johnen Vasquez really is about the entire process, but I sure as hell don't blame him. It must be tough to move from the self-directed world of independent comic publishing to non-stop compromises of network television. I know I would certainly have problems with it.
