I find it completely tragic that LJ hasn't left me with one FOB icon I could use to express just how much I am bowled over by the WAC video.

I honestly want to write like a FIFTEEN PAGE PAPER on the symbolism. I AM NOT AN ACAFEN, I SWEAR. It's just, guys! Patrick, bored, lifeless, directionless, floatin' along! And then petegull shows up, with a broken wing for Patrick to fix! Suddenly Patrick's smiling! He pulls out the antlers, the dance dance jacket, the Thks Fr Th Mmrs drum set! He has friends!


And oh god, actual Pete's little salute. I pretty much lost it right there, not going to even pretend. Pete doesn't abandon ship, he's seeing this one to the end.

And if this is it, GD it was a gorgeous way to go.

So the thing you need to know is that when Team New England and I roadtrip, there is a serious business routine to it. The conversation schedule is jampacked with hating fandom for never providing us with all the things our stupid hearts yearn for, pointing out roadkill, getting recognized by rest stop employees, scaring old men in parking lots, pointing out planes, you know, the usual.

But, magically, anytime I am in line for a tollbooth, a need arises to reenact that interview on Rage. You know the one I mean. "It's not a hot girl." "88 Fingers Louie?" "Oh Oh I heard of that band a LONG time before you did." Yeah. Like that, except more out of order, and in funny voices.

I am announcing now that the itunes preview or whatever [livejournal.com profile] icecreamhdaches put up is going to be another one of those. I'm going to need every single one of you to memorize significant lines from it, so when I yell it at you, whether or not we are actually ON the George Washington Bridge, you will be able to respond in kind. I can make up flash cards if we need them.

"Okay, how bout this. Do you think Bush and Cheney ever kissed? As America's Suitehearts?"

"They definitely held hands."

*DIES*

Hello lovelies. Last week was kind of crappy and long, but this was a pretty good Monday! I bought really douchey sunglasses, and I worked outside, and got some color, which was pretty sweet. And [livejournal.com profile] impertinence is back! This bodes very well for a rad week!

I've totally been into Ryan North since forever, but that was cemented when a bunch of people asked him if Utahraptor was a girl or gay, based on some comic that had innuendo with T-Rex. His response? i received several dozen emails about utahraptor either being a girl or being gay in yesterday's comic! he is gay, guys. only he doesn't talk about it all the time, on account of having interests outside of being gay? Sheesh. I would totally bone that dude if ever given half a chance.

Today Joey Comeau of ASW interviewed Ryan. If I was into shipping cartoonists, I would otp these fine gentleman, but I would never do such a thing. Um.

Anyways, so today's interview had a bit that went: I guess I try to write comics that I'm interested in reading. It's true that T-Rex and Dromiceiomimus and Utahraptor are all friends, and the only real antagonists I have are some off-screen cephalopods and raccoons, and to a lesser extent, the Devil. I've struggled with a neat way to describe this before, and ended up by saying that it's a friendly comic. People get along. But that sounds boring! It’s a comic where one person is the straight man and the other is wacky and they get into scrapes about that, but that doesn't drive the narrative. There's conflict, but there's not really conflict that you'd normally see in a novel. The characters in Dinosaur Comics are for the most part friends, and when they fight, it's the same sorts of fights you have with your friends. Nothing too major, nothing that a multi-year arc is going to be fueled by. It bothers me that this still makes the comic sound really boring.

Later they agree on the term good-natured instead of friendly, and it's kind of my favorite description for things that I appreciate! I have never been an angstwhore, really, and I am not really a fan of blowing shit up? But sign me UP for things that are GOOD-NATURED and FRIENDLY.

And if I'm remembered as a cartoonist, as the guy who made the dinosaurs say the funny words, I'm happy with that.

RYAN NOOOOOORTH.

Qwentz tomorrow!
