The curse of the crowded room

I'm sure you all remember back when Fuzzy applied on Sam's behalf, but you might not remember when Sam worked at Doughnut Hut. That was a long time ago!

The nominees for the 2004 Web Cartoonist's Choice Awards have been announced. I really don't know anything at all about the WCCAs or the people who organize them. But whatever these awards are, Sam and Fuzzy was nominated for three of them: in outstanding Black and White Art, Short Form Comic, and Web Design (go Ashton!) I have no idea how many cartoonists actually participate in the nomination process, but it's always nice to see Sam and Fuzzy showing up on the radar somewhere.

I can't stop listening to the song "Most of us Prizefighters" by A.C. Newman. Newman is the frontman from the New Pornographers, and this song of his is like drugs. Musical drugs.

Damn it, Max, I told you not to leave your picket signs on my annual fiscal reports!

Good news, everyone. Fuzzy's show has been picked up by the Fox network. Naturally, a few changes had to be made. Arthur and Max have been replaced with Cindy and Christy, two twenty-something white women in a contest to see who can get the most large and patriotic breast implants. They're going to call it Who Needs Integrity, Boobies Flags Money Freedom!

I shouldn't joke. For the last few years, most of the few TV shows I have watched regularly have aired on Fox. Or, more accurately, they have been cancelled by Fox. Family Guy, Futurama, Keen Eddie, Firefly... I imagine they would have cancelled 24 too, if it hadn't been so good at bringing in viewers from the "buy a Ford, stupid" demographic. (But between you and me, there is a reason Jack Bauer goes through so many different Fords in each season of 24.)

Some people have already recieved their Ninja Mafia shirts. If you've got yours and can send me some photos of you wearing it, I'll post them on the site!

Mr. Blue, you did all right

I'm glad you all enjoyed the wallpaper I posted last update to commemerate the 300th strip. It's still there, for those that missed it!

I need a job. I've been looking for contract work around town, but haven't been having much luck. Admittedly, I haven't been looking very long or hard. Still, if there is anyone reading this right now who is in desperate need of an experienced communications planner, professional writer or illustrator, (or who knows of someone who is) please check out my online portfolio and give me an email. You certainly don't have to live here in Victoria... I work with folks online all the time. I know! THE FUTURE IS NOW.

Here is a pretty fascinating article about Garfield that I found by way of Comixpedia. I've always kind of hated Jon Davies' work, but after reading that, now I'm just plain scared. I mean, yikes! What if that man used his powers for evil? Oh, wait, he already is.

All the preordered Ninja Mafia shirts shipped by the end of last week. Most buyers living in the USA should be recieving them in the next few days. Everyone else will have to wait a wee bit longer, and as usual, I will be the absolute last person to get one. I'd be bitter if there weren't so many advantages to living on a tiny island in Canada. Like the overabundance of jobs!
