Some more humor for you all this wonderful morning.
Some more humor for you all this wonderful morning.
And to quote Hawk*
“I pee’d myself a little when the deal was done.“
Congrats guys :D
(*Hawk didn’t say this, but he should have said it.. or maybe he did, and he’s not that kind of guy that tells you about it, who knows!)
Last friday I actually flew to San Diego, to surprise our friend Joel. He’s moving to the UK, and this would be the last year for our Swedish BBQ, and I just couldn’t miss that. The whole surprise we had planed backfired tho since I got in at 3-3.30 AM, and not 11PM. But all’s good, all’s good.
Since I was in town, I went to the convention and met some readers, signed some books and all that jazz. Big thanks to everyone that dropped by, it’s always awesome to meet you guys :D. It’s nice how you recognize more and more of the people who shows up, again, thanks for showing up ^^
.. didn’t that sound desperate? :)
Big shout out to MC Frontalot for being kind enough to trade me 2 CDs for some LG merchandize, thank you. Oh, and a HUGE thank you to the girl (your name totally is not in my head and I can’t find it in there either) who dropped by and gave us a tokidoki doll, I’m forever grateful :D
AAAANNNYYYYYWAAAAYS… We’re sticking around in SD for 2 more days, I need to loose my Jetlag (and there’s a wild rumor that the guys are teaching me how to surf), then we head down to Texas to hook up with our beloved super-awesome friend Monica Rial for a 24h shoot-guns-ride-horses-eat-BBQ-buy-a-hat-that-you-will-never-ever-wear-again-and-get-shitfaced race. After that little venture, it will be time for Connecticon, in Connecticut.
Looking forward to this con so very much. We’ve never been to a convention that’s so much webcomic’ished, so it’ll be interesting to see how this all works out. I was looking thru the guest list and kept going “Oh, I know that guy”, “I remember those guys”, “Doesn’t that guy owe me $100?”. The line-up they have is unbelievable … so it’ll hopefully be a hoot! ;)
We made some special convention stuff, so make sure to drop by early if you wantz some :)
Ok, time to get some breakfast, and then god knows what :)
So, I’m a bit late on the updates, mainly since we had no internet access when we where in Texas, and we just arrived at Hartford/Connecticut. I’ll try and make a comic for tomorrow, and that should hopefully go up around 20.00 or something CET (2PM EST), but who knows, that might not happen :(
We have a panel tomorrow at 11AM (just found that out an hour ago), and we also have one on sunday.. great, so much for preparations.. oh well, we’ll just do a Q&A with the 3 dudes that shows up :)
Now, I need to sleep. Hopefully I’ll se some of you guys tomorrow :D
.. oh, and we shot guns today, I might have liked it a bit too much :/
Right now, I’m on an airplane to Tokyo. Just so you know :D
Connecticon was good, we got drunk a lot and got to hang out with our comic friends and also made some new ones. As far as the actual convention goes, I’ve made more money playing chess than we did at our booth. But hey, it’s all fun and games as long as we make enough to pay for the drinking ;)
Anyways.. I’ll post some pictures later I guess if anyone is interested, from both conventions and some from Tokyo when we get there.
One love people, one love.
Oh man, what a day, what a day.
We left our hotel in hartford at 4.45am, came to the airport and everything ran smooth, we borded and the flight left in time, so far so good. Somewhere around “almost-in-chicago”, we got the news that o’hare was closed due to thunderstorm, so we circled the area for an hour before landing in Detroit to pick up more gas.. took us 3 hours to do that. Finally in the air and then landed in Chicago, our 2h flight had taken 7h.. f’ing yay™.
This meant that everything at O’hare this splendid day was delayed, and so was our ride to Narita. But hey, after a few hours waiting, we got going and sat down in monkey-class for some homoerotic 13h adventure! :(
The flight between Chicago and Narita wasn’t that bad actually, not as bad as a flight in monkey-class between Copenhagen and Bangkok.
We’re now at the hotel in Shinjuku (yeah, this time it’s shinjuku, not shibuya), and eating some fresh sushi and drinking some asahi’s :D The trip only took like 27 hours >_<
I'll be twittering ever so often from here (well, if I find open networks, since I have an old iPhone, and everything here is that mad new cool thing they call 3G). So, keep an eye on that.
Anyways, food is done and beer has been drunken (ehm, you know what I mean), so now I’ll hit the f’ing sack. Talk to you later.
OH! Fuck O’Hare btw :)
So, I’m back from Tokyo now, sorry for the lack of updates while I was there, but anyone who’s been there will be understanding. As for the rest of you.. go to Tokyo ;)
I won’t say that I’m jetlagged, since traveling west don’t really make you jetlagged, but I’ll have to admit that my brain isn’t functional yet.. a bit too much traveling west I guess.
I’ll try and write some shit about the trip when I get the chance/urge/extra energy, but I doubt people will care :)
I put some pictures from the US/JP-trip up on my facebook (fuck I hate the fact that I use that site), so if you’re a friend of mine, you can see some there.
Anyways, talk to you all soon, email me if you feel like it, I always love getting emails.
I have the script for it done and all that, just need to sit down and collect the art for it.. but since I forgot to do it last night, it’ll be a late update today because of the football game I have in like, hmm, 30 minutes from now.
In the meantime, here’s an image of the new picture I placed on my desk here at work, to remind me of how easy it is to turn into a pretentious dick.. or someone that at least sounds like one (never met Jacob, so I don’t know).
See you soon.
Oh, and now when I’ve confessed to using facebook, here’s a little thingie (no idea what you actually call them) you can join.
“Ponbiki” is my japanese name (Thanks Matt or who ever it was), and it means something like “con man” or “pimp” :) .. I think they we’re going for pimp when they dubbed me “Ponbiki” :)
“Baishunpu” is whore I guess :)
I’d say NSFW, but since it’s safe for my work, actually, they encourage it, I won’t say NSFW, I’m actually gonna say SFW!
I have a game tonight, which I due to my foot still being fucked, will only sit on the sideline watching.. but after that, it’s time for Etienne de crécy in Malmö (if you can, go see it, their live act is fucking amazing).
Anyways, have a nice weekend, and remember, Punching someone in the back of the head may lead to serious brain damage and even death.
