Well getting my computer back to the status quo hasn't been as easy as I'd hoped. I spend all day tweaking with printer setting trying to figure out the settings I used for the prints. (finally found it). Even figuring out the passwords for Snafu took me forever. Now I'm getting my scanner working again. Ugh this has been hell.
Hey just a quick update my computer got wiped clean and reformated due to some random problem I was having. And now I don't have photoshop. But my computer is up and working again enough for me to pop in here and say why I've been on radio silence for a little while.
But the good news is I think I've found my solution so Snafu can update while I'm gone to conventions. I'm VERY excited about it actually. I think this will be a great move for Snafu's future.
Well I'm flying off to akon this weekend. If you're in dallas texas stop by the artist alley and say hi. Sooooo looking forward to this convention being over so I can get some sleep. I literally was home for a day and a half from fanime before I had to fly out again. I want to make comics so bad it hurts. Honestly I want to cut conventions out and just do comics all the time. But snafu survives almost entirely off of convention sales so its something I can't leave behind. Ugh. What I rerally need is a sales man to watch the booth for me so I can stay home and comic.
Hey everyone sorry for the super slow lack of updates lately. It's entirely my fault. It's because I've been insanely busy getting ready for this weekend. There are 3 conventions I've had to worry about this weekend. I'll be personally attending San Jose's Fanime convention. Then in Anime Boston this weekend Kroze will have some Snafu merch at the Yugioh Adridged Booth. Also at my Fanime artist alley tables I'll have some VG Cats merchandise and some Girl Genius books for sale. All while up in Toronto Scott Ramsoomair will be doing another convention called Anime North.
So a quick recap if you get a chance stop buy and visit me at Fanime in San Jose.
Scott Ramsoomair of VG Cats at Anime north in Toronto,
and Kroze from Yugioh Abridged at Anime Boston... in Boston.
But yeah I still haven't gone through the editor and colorist submissions entirely. Once we get that settled we have a lot of Naruto comics finished and ready to go. I have some MyPanda's finished I just need time to upload them. Then we have a bunch of new comics I need to add super soon to... But I have Akon the very next weekend after Fanime so we'll see how much I get done next week. Conventions never stop I swear.
Snafu will be at anime central this weekend. We will have three brand new shirts two brand new prints. A new booth. Bunnywith toys and comic books. Tons of neat stuff never before offered. Come check it all out!
Holy crap k first off I'd like to apologize to the people who applied to be a colorist/editor for Snafu-Comics a few weeks ago. Apparently nearly ALL of your e-mails went to my spam junk folder for reasons I can't possibly imagine. So Yeah if I haven't contacted you back at all that's why. I'm going to go through these when I get back from Anime Central. But super sorry about this everyone. I didn't mean to be rude.
Oh yeah I should also mention that you can get a free piece of KFC's new grilled chicken today ONLY. It's a new product and they want you to try it out. I do love me some chicken and I always like chicken better grilled than fried so i'm curious to try this out. I guess time for me to get my chicken sample.
Well I was reading internet news as I tend to do from time to time (constantly) and I came across one of the million fluff pieces that aren't news but stupid stories designed to insight ignorant unaware people into come kind of frenzied rage. And oh how it works like magic every time. Normally I don't give these things much attention and particularly wouldn't bother mentioning it to you fine people. But this one has the most insane comments I've ever read on the internet and I've read a lot of insane comments.
Quick recap of what happened. Someone somewhere made a silly app for the iphone, this is NOT Apple that made it is just someone who made it and it can be played on the apple iphone. Well the app is of random bad sketches of babbies and they're crying and you can shake the phone and the baby gets giant red x's over it's eye's in a cartoon fashion to show that the baby died. and thus the point of the baby shaking app in the first place. I'm sure it took someone all of 10 minutes to make the application. I suck at programming and I could have even made this one. It's not some indepth thing it's just silly. Here you can see it for yourself.
Warning: If you have no concept of reality and can't understand a joke, or if you get incredibly offended when people shake their phones then don't watch this completely harmless video.
The comments were a varied range from "boycott apple", to feminist super-nazi-man-hatred, to hoping the person who made the game goes to jail for helping in murder, and of course that follows with he should be thrown in jail and butt raped (of course, you cant have christian outrage without butt sex involved to make everything ok again.) They also threw in that if we're so mad at this, we should also be mad at Grand Theft Auto. Oh and anyone who thinks this is funny should have been aborted or at the very least sterilized so they can never have kids to murder with their now expertly well practiced baby shaking skillz. I mean clearly nobody ever shook a baby before the iphone came out. Clearly.
Here I'll take one of the lighter comments directly.

I was an apple user. No more. They have obviously decided to target the truly stupid people in our society. Since I do not fall into that category I will purchase my computers and phones elsewhere
Rose check out this bit of filth
there I just made a penis with a three some equal signs and a ">" If you're viewing it, it's on your PC right this second. Let's boycott Microsoft, I can't believe they would allow a text penis to be programed onto your computer like that. And for that matter let's ban 3's and equal signs from now on just incase our children someday see this horrible thing sick fucks call a "joke".
For any person thats inconsolably outraged at this and believe anyone who isn't shouldn't have kids. I'd like to show you with science why not only should they be parents, but that they are better candidates for parents than you.
This picture is
a) a cellphone
B) a baby
C) murder training device
D) key to the gates of hell.
If you answered, B, C, or D... yeah you failed my super scientific reality test.
With all that said there was one comment that was rational and makes perfect sense.

How about, right or wrong, this game is just in poor taste.
Now that's "outrage" I can respect. I'm not saying you have to like it, I'm not saying you have to download the app and play it everyday because it's so super awesome. But seriously people. Get a REAL problem to worry about, because this is just silly.
Hey it's entirely my fault there haven't been much updates this week. I haven't gotten through all the editor/colorist emails yet for Titan Sphere/Naruto/Pirate Harbor/FF7 comics. I haven't done MyPanda and Snafu and Tin since I've got back, I've got Bleedman super busy on a project we need done by the end of the month for a convention Snafu will be attending soon.
So ummm don't hate me I'm a bottle neck that's holding everything up. But only temporarily I hope.
So I finally caved and I joined twitter. Honestly. I don't know what the point is yet. And I'm not posting about it to say "hey add me" I'm posting about it to ask A) what's a good application on the T-Mobile G1 to Twitter with I know there are a billion, and 2) what IS the point? what do I do with this new found tweeting power? It seems like a virtual stalking service and that's something to active avoid not sign up for. I'm confused.
K so I managed to pay my credit card twice today. My internet browser froze while it was making the online transfer from my checking account to my credit card. So I closed that window logged back in checked to see if there was a pending transfer, which there wasn't. So cool it didn't go through no big deal. So I started the process again transfered money from my checking to my credit card and then boom there are two of them. So I paid twice. I thought ok there must be a way to cancel this quickly since it takes 2-3 days for transfers to go through anyways. I can't do it online. So I call my bank, they can't do it since it's a card transfer so they send me over to Visa. And they say they can't do it until the money actually comes to them in 2-3 days.
But banking woe's aside yesterday was a pretty good day. I got home from my week long excursion to Seattle for Emerald City and SakuraCon (thanks again everyone for coming to the panel I had a blast.) and when I got home from driving that long I was dead tired. so I did a few small errands like picked my computer up from the repair place, replaced my broken watch band, and ripped wallet, and bought groceries just enough for two days of eating. I went home and had a relaxing day. Which may have been a bad idea since I do have so much work to catch up on. But at the same time I had a week and a half of awesome shows to catch up on to :)
I watched the two newest episodes of South Park which I loved throughly. the Eat, Pray, Queef episode was ridiculously funny to me. My favorite part is how they made fun of themselves with the two part terrance and phillip episode and they didn't show the second part since it was april fools day. South Park did that exact same thing way back in the day when the big thing was "who was Cartman's Dad." and instead of showing the second part they showed a Terrance and Phillip episode on April Fools. South Park fans were PISSED. So the entire episode to me was a this really happened event of sorts. I thought it was brilliant.
Oh and I also watched a ton of 30 Rock season 2 on the Xbox 360's netflix account. I love that show. Baldwin is hilarious and Tina Fey is officially a genius for coming up with the show.
Other than that not much happened yesterday. Today though I need to work work work to catch up from being gone for so long. I'm also thinking of finding a Fresno Chiropractor since my back has been killing me since I got home. I think the driving destroyed me.
Well I'm sitting waiting for opening ceremonies to start when I realized I can type news posts on my phone now. So I've checked up on snafu and I'm a bit disappointed in the lack of updates in my abscence but that's to be expected I suppose. Anyhoo ill be back tuesday night and ill immediately get to work on snafu tin and mypanda. And ill start to sift through the great submissions we've got for editors and colorists for the new comics. Once we get those setup we should have naruto updating regularly for a long time and mypanda forever. And final fantasy can get rolling as well.
As for my week in seattle its been incredibly boring. I was alone chilling in my motel for two day straight and when shawn from halolz flew in on wednesday I was excited for company but he slept all day long. Thursday we setup our booths and that leaves me at today. Dull week. Oh well.
Oh and my gateway netbook laptop thing broke on this trip. Again. Its the third time I've taken it to three cons and all three cons its failed me. Never ever under any circumstances buy a gateway they suck big time.
Oh and if you're at sakura con stop by the panel today at 4 pm. It should be decently fun I hope plus there is a webcomics panel tomorrow morning at 9 with penny arcade me greg from real life comics shawn from halolz and possible some more peeps. Should be rad.
Let me tell you what an awesome time I've been having lately. Yesterday k I go to ship order for Shark Robot. I get all of them sent. Forgot my wallet, which is the 2nd time in like a week. The last time was in Red Robins. Went home got my wallet all taken care of no biggie what ever.
This was the prelude to today.
Today I went to pay rent. I had ONE job to fill and that was it. I go to pay rent and on the way to the realtor that I drop the check off at I start up a conversation with Anath from AppleGeeks I get to the realtor and turn off the car and continue chit-chatting and by the time I put the phone down the place closed five minutes prior. I'm an IDIOT.
Then on the way home I take a wrong left turn and feel retarded. But whatever I decide to go to Office Depot and buy some Rubber-Bands. $2 item. No big deal. My Visa card has issues. Not that big a deal my card gets turned off nearly monthly or more because I purchase like everything online and Visa is terrified my card was stolen... again. And the thief just happens to shop at all of the places I shop at online every month. Whatever. Anyhow after that radness I go to my car to realize I've locked my keys in my car. Sweet. I try and call for my roommates to come rescue me with my spare set and when I call I get connected to my blue tooth headset (in the car) and I wonder why my phone doesn't make a noise. I realize what happened and since I have no idea how to not connect to that damned thing when it's in range I just have to walk far enough away from my car to call normally. I get rescued and decide to go to Home Depot to get another spare car key made just incase I do that again. They can't make that key. Awesome.
So today I'm losing my mind and I was a COMPLETE failure.
I'm totally referencing this old comic that I Still love. And my official opinion on RE5 I don't think it's racist at all. He's just in Africa, it would be more racist if he were in Africa and he was still shooting white zombies. It's a rad idea for a game and I really like it.
