Reader Art and Weekly Linksplode!

Keegan Mykris of the comic sent me this fraktastic rendition of “Godspeed, You Fancy Bastard.”

That’s fucking awesome (if not a little bittersweet since I couldn’t do something that simple and elegant if I had a gun to my head).

Onto Linksplosion!

Need some feedback on Shirt Design

UPDATE (4/10/08 @ 1:45pm):

I’ve been reading all the suggestions and messing around with new design concepts. I normally would just design the shirt and put it in the store, but this one is special. It’s the “I’m A Fancy Bastard” shirt. This brands you as an HE reader because NO ONE ELSE could ever understand it. Taking the best bits from all the suggestions and mixing them with my own ideas I’ve come up with these:



Ignore the background color. I just used a neutral gray to sketch over. I think Joel and Eli would be in gray tones kind of in shadow.

Submit questions for Podcast Episode #9


The “Male Sack” was a huge success last time. Your questions were fantastically geeky and created some great moments on the HE Podcast. Let’s go ahead and make this a regular thing. Hit me with your questions. Same format as last time.

I know this is short notice but it’s been a busy week.

BIG ANNOUCNEMENT coming next week. Sit tight.

(remember I won’t answer your questions in the comments. We’ll save them for the show.)


We are going to be interviewing (hopefully) the guy who owns the house where Joss Whedon filmed scenes for “Dr. Horrible“. He probably can’t say much, but if you have questions for him, let us know.

Give me your delicious brain ideas!

We’ve talked about this 40 or 1000 times but now I’m doing it. We need QUESTIONS from THE READERS for THE HIJINKS ENSUE PODCAST.


Please post your questions in the comments of this thread. I won’t respond here. Rather, I will save them and read them during the show. Then, here’s the tricky part, we’ll answer them!

Feel free to add on to each other’s questions and such. I want to make the Podcast more interactive and get some audience participation.

What can you ask? Anything, everything, whateverthing!

If you are a regular reader/listener you know what we normally talk about. Here are some topics we have extensive knowledge on:

  • TV – Lost, Battlestar, Firely, The Buffyverse, The Office, 30 Rock, Arrested D., Star Trek, ALL 80’s and 90’s shows, any scifi or geek show…even Sliders
  • Movies – Upcomming movies, trailers, geek favs from days gone by, you name it
  • Gaming – we have two co-hosts in the gaming industry. Ask them about that.
  • Comics – I’m reading Astonishing X-Men, Buffy and Angel. Eli is reading everything else.
  • HijiNKS Ensue – Questions about the comic? Let me know.
  • Technology – Macs, Apple, Steve Jobs, Macs, iPhones, Macs… you know.. techology.
  • Life – relationships, jobs, sex, personal stuff, etc. We might not answer these, but there’s no harm in trying.

As a bonus, you may also request the manner in which the question is answered. For instance, you can request that your question be answered by Yoda addressing Frodo. Or that Eli’s grandma answer it. Or that Josh answer it in Sexy-German(tm). Ask me to answer the question in the song styling of your choice (I probably won’t do it). Get creative.

If you want to be a part of the HijiNKS Ensue Podcast, here’s a way to get started. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
