The terrible thing about having a backlog of finished strips? Knowing exactly what the finished, written, and lettered pages look like for the next two updates and not being able to wait to show them off. Because they’re goddamn awesome. But alas, patience is a virtue and we worked hard to get a nice little buffer up again.
In other news, I’m currently listening to the end credit theme for Portal 2 on repeat. I don’t really play video games. There’s a long and sordid and abusive history there. So I stick to the occasional evening of side scrolling beat ‘em ups or new Mortal Kombat with CK down in the bowels of the castle and leave it at that. Other than that, I don’t touch games. I’m not even sure how to navigate the interface of a console machine anymore. Its like black magic now compared to the simple days of shoved a clunky piece of plastic and circuitry into a larger box of plastic and circuitry, flipping a button and then proceeding to fire spiky blue impossible shells at plumbers until their died. All while screaming maniacally.
However, I do keep an eye on the industry. I find it fascinating. I also tend to look up plots in wikis or listen to “Let’s Plays” of game while I work. Portal is one of those games that while I’ve never played it, I heard plenty about it, its story, its memes, and seen enough videos that I find it terribly amusing.
Thus, I’m listening to Want You Gone on repeat as I type all this up and await CK to upload Walrus related stuff to the castle’s internal server for me to look at. He’s been cackling madly all day from his writing lair so I’m looking forward to what he’s come up with.
