Howdy, Livejournal Friends!

I wanted to take a minute to say “thank you” to all the people viewing this site coming from Livejournal.com. I started the HijiNKS Ensue LJ just a couple of weeks ago and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

A few LJ Communities have been extremely supportive, so special thanks to:

There are a couple of users that have gone out of their way to spread the word as well:

Thanks again for your support!

I mentioned before that I was unable to attend San Diego Comic-Con 2007. This comic represents a fictionalized universe where “the crew” (you may also refer to them as “Teh b0yZ”) attends faithfully each year with coordinated costumes. I can only assume that in such a scenario one member would draw the proverbial short straw and be called upon to adopt an alternate gender roll. Comic-Con is generally in no short supply of men willing to do just that.

Though the mystery of the Blue Sun Corporation may never be revealed, Eli’s bit of Chinese cursing in the first panel does have a translation. 50 pts if you figure it out. You can apply those points towards your purchase of the Serenity: Special Edition DVD. Looks like our hopes of a BDS ride squarely on it.

Costume ideas that didn’t make it into the comic:

  • Angel, Wesley, Cordy
  • Buffy, Giles, Xander (eye-patchy Xander, otherwise how could you tell it was him?)
  • Zod, Ursa and Non
  • Marvel Zombies (Cap, Spidey and Sue Storm maybe)
  • American McGee’s Alice, Cheshire Cat and Hatter
  • Beatrix Kiddo, Bill, and a Crazy 88
  • The Ghostbusters (since Janean doesn’t count, I couldn’t do it)
  • Mr. Furious, The Shoveller and the Bowler (I wish I had done that one)

To make everything fit I had to remove the word (or exclamatory phrase), “Shenanigans!” from the last panel. I apologize, but I promise I will find a place for it in the near future.

Left arm, thy name is Firefly

Denise is beginning her journey to enlightenment.

Denise: so you’re a firefly fan, right? i finally got around to start watching it
Joel: oh wow
Joel: its like discovering your left arm
Joel: it was always there, and now that you know, you are capable of twice as much
Denise: well now i’m thinking i should give buffy another try
Joel: ?
Denise: didnt he write that too?
Joel: a part of me just died

Why a Wiimote cousin? Why not an axe?

Because it’s dull, you twit, it’ll hurt more.

Anyone? Robinhood: Prince of Thieves? Anyone? Guy of Gisbourne? No?

Moving on. I just finished Season 3 of Battlestar Galactica. I’m late to this party, but I brought the Barbecue Funyuns. Josh had been telling me for years that I was missing out by not watching BSG. It wasnt that I didn’t care. Oh, contraire. I cared too much.

When I love something, the good people at VivendiUniversalMTVFOXComedyCentralEXXonMobilMrsBairdsBread start the death clock (not the DethKlok). I told that bald headed bastard that If I ever loved this Battlestar that it would be swiftly taken from us all. Rendered asunder like so much Wonderfalls, or dare I say it, Firefly. Why did you leave us Captain Tightpants? Why?

Well, I signed up for the Netflix, put seasons 1 and 2 in the que and immediately started watching BSG…every night. 3 and 4 episodes at a time. Riker’s Beard, this is good scifi!” I says. 14 seconds later it got canceled. Thats right, my love is cursed. Woe unto to yee that knows my love, for yee shalt be cancel-ed. ALL ARE CANCEL-ED!

Josh tried to convince me that I was part of the problem for not watching it sooner. I pointed out that downloading HDTV rips of the episodes from Bittorrent wasn’t exactly supporting the show either.

I think I actually heard him “Herumph” at that point.
