live in colour

Tra la la...

I swear the guys at penny-arcade are starting to lose their grip on reality.

Tycho seems to be infering that everyone who owns a GameCube owns a GBA, and that well.. if you don't own a GBA what kind of freak are you? In Tycho and Gabes little world I guess everyone spends the sort of cash on computer games that they do.. oh wait, they get a lot of it for free... hmmm..

I've started to enjoy Penny Arcade a lot less lately. Mainly because Gabe's ego seems to be attaining the size of a blue whale faster than you can say 'promotional gifts'... but also they really haven't been funny in far too long. Tycho's news posts/rants are usually still worth the read, but the strip - while artistically getting better and better - is really left wanting.

My reasoning for it? They aren't living in the same world as the rest of us any more. They both make enough from PA to tide them over month to month, so their comentary and the urgency of the strip is lost. Well done them, but that doesn't make good comedy.

Or maybe I take the funnies too seriously.

Greg's Notes for Today -
Getting to bed at 8am isn't a good thing for the rest of your day.
Job interview/orientation tomorrow at 2pm... wish me luck.
Yay for the fabulous cmpriest cheering me up with bribes of manuscript form.

Things to do.... so little brain power to do them with...
