My Webcomic

September 22, 2010

Hello everyone! I haven’t updated this blog in a long time, but I still consider myself to be a creative person. In January, 2010, I started a webcomic called Between Classes. It’s been going pretty strong. I’d like to consider it to be one of the best things that I’ve ever started. So far, I’ve made almost 80 comics. Right now I’m drawing 3 new webcomics a week. I’m also updating the site with my girlfriend’s webcomics once per week. If you like what’s on this site, maybe you’ll like my webcomic, who knows!

Check it out!

Classic

April 16, 2007

I received the following email today…it’s one of the funniest and most cliché pieces of spam that I’ve ever gotten.  Enjoy!

Dear Friend,

I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met before. My name is  Mr  Adams     Leo.   I am the bill and exchange manager in African Development Bank. I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust and confidence that I am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families.

I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of our Bank who perished along with his next of kin with Korean Air Line, flight number 801 with the whole passengers on 6th of august 1997 and for your perusal you can view this site
http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9708/06/guam.passenger.list

Since the demise of this our customer, I personally have watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of US$11.3M (Eleven Million Three Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which has been with our branch for a very long time.

On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin since nobody is coming for the fund again. The Banking ethics here do not allow such money to stay more than 10 years, because the money will be
recalled to our Banks treasury as unclaimed fund after this period.

In view of this I got your contact through the Internet when I was making a research on a foreigner that I will use in this great opportunity because I don’t want the money to be recalled to our Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. I have also agreed to offer 40% of the total sum and the rest 60% will be for me.

The reason for a foreigner in the business is for the fact that the deceased man was a foreigner and it is not authorized by the law guiding our Bank for a citizen of this country to make the claim of the fund.So the request for you as a foreigner to come into the business is necessary, it will facilitate the release and transfer of the fund smoothly into your reliable Bank account as the only surviving relation to the deceased.

If you are really sure of your integrity, trustworthy and confidentiality, and accept not to cheat or disappoint me after this business, reply with your telephone and fax numbers and Banking account details where you wish to receive the fund.

Upon receipt of the above mentioned information, indicating your interest in the business, I will send you by fax or e-mail a letter of application which you will type and send back to our bank to enable us start this transaction.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is risk free and doesn’t have any negative implication. You should not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and easy transfer of this fund have been finalized. This transaction will be completed within 14 bank working days immediately we start the business.

Waiting for your urgent response and please kindly delete if you are not interested.
Regards,

Mr. Adams   Leo.  African Development Bank
Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

Halo 3 Beta & Channel 10

March 29, 2007

I’m pretty annoyed…Channel 10 told us about two major announcements coming.

The first was about the Xbox360 Elite…and the second was strongly rumored (Look at #6 on the list of things to do while XboxLive is down…the THIRD bullet point has the number 117 in it) to have something to do with Halo 3.

The second turned out to have to do with mobile phones. Not about a mobile phone specifically, or about an OS for mobile phones. Not about Live Anywhere on mobile phones, which if you stretched enough you could kind of see as deserving of being paired with the official announcement of the Xbox360 Elite. No. The “announcement” (if you can even call it that at all) was of a damn mobile phone web browser.

Wow…way to overhype and underdeliver – I for one am pissed. When I first saw the post, I refreshed the page again, looking for the real announcement. It wasn’t about being in denial, it was that I didn’t even understand what it was that I had seen.

It was like this:

“Hey, the announcement post is live! It’s a new mobile phone web browser!”

“Hahahaha. Nice…no really, when is the announcement going to be posted?”

EDIT: Apparently I was not alone in this respect [1]

Way to go Channel 10…I hadn’t heard of you before, but now I promise that I’ll never forget you.

Shadowrun Beta Video! [update]

March 20, 2007

I’m in the Shadowrun Beta, and until recently I was unable to share anything about it, because of a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)!

 

That’s all changed now, since the NDA has been lifted! Behold the first of many!

(please excuse my crappy playing, as I was concentrating more on the photographic aspect than the game itself)

UPDATE:

I’ve also managed to upload another video, but for some reason the audio didn’t render.  I’ll surely fix it later (if it can be fixed), but for now it’s just cool to see high quality video.

“Oh you are SO booted now”

March 11, 2007

If you ever find yourself a game hosted by Tsukasa 0, (that’s a zero), in Gears of War, make sure not to use a pistol of any kind, a grenade of any kind, or to do better than him. If you do any of these things, he will boot you from the game. If you rejoin, he won’t boot you right away, but instead will wait until the round ends, and then boot you when the next round starts, giving you a sense of false hope that you will be able to play. When I asked him about why he does this, after being booted about a half a dozen times, he replied by booting me. Awesome.
