Remember whatever, it seems like forever ago

I really think you need to be reading Niego. In only a short amount of time, it has grown into one of the funnier and better looking comics on the internetwebs. Plus, since the archives are still relatively small, there's plenty of time to read through the whole thing in preparation for my guest strip, which will be running early next week. But you don't need an excuse. You just need a sense of humour and a little spare time!

Thank you all for your sympathy regarding my misadventures in car shopping. I was a very-tiny-hand-gesture close to giving up on the whole escapade and cruising around in a cardboard box, Sam and Fuzzy style.

I guess what I am saying is that I was feeling... not so extreme. Extreme like a horse. A horse named... X-HIDALGO SPACEFORCE G!

Dreams, dreams

There is a comic that is not misleadingly titled Nothing Nice to Say. But as the old cliche goes, if you can't say something nice, then say it in a way that is really funny and involves drawings and the internet. Besides, reading Mitch Clem's comic will provide you with a useful counterbalance to the extreme optimism and pleasantness that just oozes from every Sam and Fuzzy strip.

Thanks to viewers like you, I now own my very own Sega Saturn. I'm currently knee-deep in NiGHTS, a game that really is as special as everyone says it is. Despite my growing frustration with Sonic Team's seemingly unending string of ports and remakes, I actually would like to see this game re-released on a modern console... if only so more folks could get a chance to play it! But we'll probably be playing Puyo Puyo Fever again on the Playstation 412 before that ever happens.

The world forgetting, by the world forgot

So, how about those Oscars? They sure were... televised. OK, so maybe I didn't actually watch the Academy Awards this year. Believe it or not, I have not seen a single one of the films nominated for Best Picture. Now, I'm certainly not in a good position to judge these films I haven't seen. I'm sure they were all very nice. But was every one of them really better than Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a movie which was far and away the best I have seen in years? The odds are not ones on which I would bet my life savings.

Words to the wise: buying a used car is tricky business. One minute you are buying an OK car from a person; the next you are now apparently dealing exclusively with their unpleasant spouse, who would like you to agree to a different deal and a different price or else they will sell to a possibly imaginary second buyer. And maybe later this person decides to verbally abuse your mother over the phone, although I think that part is probably optional. I guess what I am saying is that if you are thinking of buying a car, you might actually prefer to eat a sandwich of rusted sheet-metal and thumbtack filling instead.

I am so discouraging today! Don't listen to me, things are not really all that bad. There is plenty to enjoy, like the amusing arrangement of words and colours that is Magical Adventures in Space! Topato understands.
