I had a lovely time at InterventionCon. And even though I really came to them last-minute, Onezumi and Harknell totally found a place for me in the whole thing, I really appreciate it. And thanks to the amazing Gloria Chapa who made sure all us guests had the support we needed. You guys were great, thank you.
And it was so good to see Shaenon Garrity and Pete Abrams, and also to meet Jeffrey Channing Wells, Jennie Breeden, and T Campbell among many.
And the conventioning is still not over. This coming weekend I’ll be doing the Saturday-one-day-indie-comics expo MICE up in Boston, and then the next weekend APE in San Francisco. And then I rest for a wee little bit. Well, probably not.
Oh, an amusing link from Fish in the comments last week, but nicely tied into today’s strip: the world of REAL Bar-Bots.
Yup. Mental health is overrated.
Interesting that while the strip today has to do with big blue cats, the header of the strip proudly announces “MICE!”
Please tell me it’s not another Andrew Lloyd Webber musical…
“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” warned us that this might happen.
I want whatever bar-bot has been serving her.
“One River of Lethe Special coming right up!”
beautiful – I cannot what crazy direction this webcomic will go in after all. Sheesh, the next few panels might just show Khuu-Drach in the intimate embrace of Rickshaw Boans, his secret lover, a freedom fighting puceberry millionare.
Oh no, the bar-bot installed the Naivety2K program.
Oh. Yuri is -crazy-. This is a new development.
Oops removing too much memory is a dangerous thing. And Yuri is in trouble and she has no idea. To quote a famous cartoon cat—-“Gaak!”
I just heard on the radio about a guy working on a prototype “bar-bot” at a hacker space in New York. Life imitates art.
Christopher, between knowing Martina will die and poor Yuri, I just can’t take it! arghhhh!!!
Psychology is evil?
I see Chris is taking the L. Ron Hubbard approach to sci-fi. 😉
@Barkeron, ha! No, i’m a big supporter of it, although I do think memory altering is a precarious road. 🙂
when I hear barbot I automatically think of the “you want some more?” barbot from 5th element.
@Sardtok: At least it wasn’t the Nativity2k program.
@Prairie: That’s what I was trying to link to. I’m not sure if I got it right – I only heard the end of the program.
@Prairie: We only have Nogg’s word that Martina buys the farm. What if Nogg is trying to lay a false trail for beings who would want Martina dead? What if Nogg is mistaken? What if Nogg doesn’t remember Martina’s survival because of a Mihrgoot mind wipe?
So I’ve been in denial since early in the story. What of it?
You know, Yuri’s situation is interesting and all, but I can’t help but wonder what will happen when Shuar gets to the hotel room and finds Dimitri, drink in hand, with a pink elephant in restraints and a bunch of eebs.
Two females, a set of restraints, Dimitri, and a bunch of midgets. The mind boggles.
To quote Quiet Riot “Metal health will drive you crazy / Metal health will drive you mad! / Bang your head!”
@JKCarroll: You have a sick and twisted mind – I like it!
Now the former War Pig is Hawgowar (had to change name to get a gravitar).
@Herb… let’s just say I would be in denial too if I hadn’t talked to Christopher when he was in Minneapolis. He convinced me he is an evil genius who will do nothing to ease the suffering of his poor saps of readers. He had the evil laugh and everything. And a long mustache he twisted between his fingers.
@Prairie and @Herb, I have heard this a good number of times (and hear it myself when I do it), my evil laugh when I talk about character’s fates. It’s nice to hear “genius” thrown in there, though, that’s a new one. >:-D
Oh hey, Porter Square — that’s just down the road from me. I should drop on by.
