Just wanted to say Hi and thanks to DigitalMoto, who stumbled my Macbook Air comic and and sent some much appreciated traffic to the site. He obviously has fantastic taste, so befriend him on Stumble Upon and heed his internetting advice.
Friday night saw my first front page Digg for a comic (the previous one was for the Guitar Hero III video). Special thanks to EvanStapler for submitting the story, and to everyone that Dugg it. As can be expected the traffic crashed my server and asploded my site. I was on the phone for 3 hours with my host trying to get it back up. I finally had to move to a more robust box (more robust = more $$$). Digg comments are a hard thing to read when they are concerning your own work. They range from innocuous to outright hateful. This was the best one:
I don’t have words for that. It’s poetry.
We were (this) close to seeing Cloverfield but got to the theater and saw this:
So we saw Sweeney Todd instead. My wife gets seasick easily and I have an inner ear/vertigo condition so I figured it best to see C-Field at home where I can sit in front of a puke bucket. Sweeney Todd was fantastic. Beautifully shot and excellently performed. The score was formidable to say the least. I enjoyed the movie even more when, in the first 15 minutes, two different sets of teenagers got up and left. “What’s all this gay singing and shit? Let’s get out of here and go have unprotected sex.”
Tom Cruise’s particular brand of crazy has been all over the net this week. In light of his galactic revelations I wanted to share this happy little accident I saw in Barnes and Noble a few weeks back:
I decided to try out Reddit as opposed to Digg to drum up some interest in the comic. If you are so inclined as to participate in this social experiment, please go here and “add points” to my submission (the equivalent of Digging my story).
I’m hoping to have a new comic up Friday and then make HijiNKS Ensue a twice weekly thing for a while.
So is bacon. I should have a site called: http://baco.nisdelicio.us
You will notice at the bottom of each comic and blog post, there is now a “Share This” button. Using the excellent wordpress plugin of the same name, made by this nice man, you are now able to easily bookmark, digg and email HijiNKS Ensue Geek Comics to your friends the enemies.
Here’s what it looks like:
I’m finishing up the new comic right now and hope to have it up tomorrow morning. Keep the emails and comments coming. Join the email updates list by emailing me at comics at hijinksensue dawt comz and make sure to add the Geek Comic RRS feed to your RSS thing.
