Tasty yet disturbing

It seems that lately, no matter what I'm doing, I'd rather be playing Katamari Damacy. It's the most bizarre, original, addictive video game I've played all year. Basically, you roll things up into a big ball. But when I say "things," I mean everything. You start with stuff like thumbtacks and lego blocks, but as your ball grows, you move on to large fruit and small animals, then furniture and vehicles, houses and airplanes, and eventually, entire cities.

It's exactly as much fun as it sounds. Even as I am sitting here at my computer, I am glancing around my room, sizing up objects for their rolling potential. Plus, the game has a slick visual style and a great soundtrack. If you have a PS2, you need to get this game. And if you don't, you need to do what I did: borrow someone elses PS2 and get this game. It's so good, I was actually willing to write this rant twice.

Pay no attention to the man behind the comic

Who is Rikk Estoban? This is the question that has been dominating my inbox ever since that bizarre guest strip ran over at Questionable Content. Well rest assured, we will all be finding out a bit more about Rikk... in exactly twelve days. Remember, patience is a virtue, good things come to those who wait, and other relevant cornball expressions.

Unfortunately, t-shirts are currently being mailed out a little slower than I would like. Sales on all three designs have really picked up since the Skull Panda shirts first arrived, which is awesome, but it also caught me a wee bit off guard. I'm having more shirts printed and increasing the size of my regular backstock as we speak, but in the meantime, I hope you all are willing to wait that extra week or two for your Sam and Fuzzy duds to arrive in the mail. Things will be moving faster again soon... thank you for being patient with me as my little shop makes the transition to a slightly bigger little shop.

Have you seen this Websnark deal? It's totally like a personal blog, only the author spends his time writing intelligent commentary about webcomics instead of complaining about how he is SO ALONE OH GOD. I particularly like the way he spends more time recommending good comics than he does slamming lousy ones -- it makes the site a pretty useful way to find out about new webcomics to read. Plus, there are some pretty thoughtful and well-written entries about "webcomic issues," like comic-ripping programs and so on. If someone was ever going to write a review of Sam and Fuzzy, this is totally the kind of guy I would hope would be doing the writing.

Unless, you know, he didn't like it.

Shakey Bakey

Sexy news for all you Skull Panda heads! Today at Questionable Content there is a special guest strip featuring our beloved Panda, drawn by infamous underground cartoonist Rikk Estoban. Honestly, it seems kind of tasteless to me, but I still think some of you guys will probably enjoy it... if not for the witty social satire, then for all the murdering.

I'm writing today's rant from Claire's place today, to the sound of furiously digging gerbils. I swear to god, they just dig and dig and dig. They also enjoy sleeping, chewing on carboard, and long walks on the beach. Looking for soulmates, or just a good time. Interested single male gerbils of all ages welcome. Please, no hamsters.
