Part 2 of 3.
This is where the weekend started to get drinky. During the 4 day convention I honestly got 8 hours of sleep. I’ve thought a lot about how I am able to go so hard and so fast for so long (heh heh) with so little rest, and the only conclusion I’ve drawn is that I (well, we) enter into survivial mode. Our brains know that we can’t stop going going going, so they tell our brains that if we stop we will die (when the opposite is likely closer to the truth). The other factor in this perpetual delirium equation is that many of my best friends and most favorite people are those I only see 3 or 4 times a year. When we all gather in an unfamiliar city, I think we try to cram months of living into mere nights. Sure, we could sleep, but those are precious hours I could be spending making memories (all be it hazy ones) with wonderful friends. Doesn’t the military have some sort of “no sleep, but your body doesn’t freak out and your brain still works” pill for Navy Seals or something? Why am I paying taxes if I can’t have access top secret, experimental brain drugs?
This comic stars Lar, Sohmer, and Becker of Blind Ferret, and Jennie, Kris and Dave of Cyanide and Happiness and takes place in a NY pub called The Blarney Stone. Earlier in that very establishment, a fan puked on Zach Weiner of SMBC. Had I been there, rest assured this would be a 4 part photo comic.
COMMENTERS: This evening started as a pub crawl with SMBC and Cyanide and Happiness fans. Have you ever partied with a creative type or celebrity that you really looked up to? Did your opinion change after meeting them? I had drinks with Jonathan Frakes once, and he was an absolute delight.
