e-mail us

    Joe - 7/6/04       Laura - 6/28/04  

First of all, I want to apologize to people who have e-mailed us. One of the things I've tried to do is respond to every mail we get personally. However, it has gotten to be taxing for me to do so. Time has been a scarce commodity for me recently, so I have been skimping from time when I usually answer e-mails. In addition, the account gets so much spam that some messages get lost in the shuffle. So, I want to thank everyone who has e-mailed us here and to apologize for not answering. Unless the mail happened to be buried under spam (which I try to sift through regularly) it has been read and the feedback is appreciated.

Conneticon is in a couple weeks, and I'll be heading down for that Saturday and Sunday. I also think I'm running a panel, but the organizers have gave me nearly no information that I haven't explicitly asked for, so I don't know what's going on with that. Either way, if you're going, it would be cool to meet readers in real life. Conneticon is also running this kind of webcomic team challenge thing where they want different comics to assemble teams to compete in events like video gaming and whatnot, but I don't think there are enough readers going to Conneticon to actually form one of these teams. However, if you would be interested, feel free to e-mail or post on the forum and if we get enough, we'll see what we can pull together. You can find details on the event at the Conneticon webpage.

In other trivial news, there really isn't too much going on that's really worth mentioning here. The summer seems to drag on a bit (although there is Otakon to look forward to). It's not that I don't like the summer. It's definitely preferable over the cold any day (IMHO). However, summer has lost its charm over the years. Instead of looking forward to it for a break from things, it has become just the same as any other season. I still have to go to work and do things that, more often than not, leave me drained. I guess I'm just disturbed by the fact that general society seems to see the work (coughcorporate-peoncough) that I feel is empty, meaningless and (at times) asinine as worth more than the work that I feel actually has purpose and meaning. I really need to find a new line of work.


You know what the lame thing about me writing rants is? A whole month goes by, during which I know I have thought several times to myself, "This would make a good rant topic." And now, here I find myself trying to write a rant, and drawing a blank. The most I can think of is to write about how I can't think of anything to write about 0_o

Well, let's see. I will be having my badly needed vacation this week. My first amount of extended time off from work in like a year ;_; I need to see some movies this week. There's a whole bunch of summer movies I've been wanting to see but haven't. And now I have Spiderman 2 to add to the roster. I must see it! It looks kickass. And Bruce Campbell must have another cameo or I will die!

Also, Otakon is coming up. I'm all excited about that. Mainly about the dealer's room. That's what my big love for cons is all about, buying stuff I don't need. There's a LOT of stuff I don't need. Like mangas. Lately it's seems like there's so much manga out there, I've been having a hard time developing more than a passing interest in anyone title. Kind of like what Joe was saying some time ago, I go to a bookstore to look at manga shelf and it's just like, "Whoa." Kind of the same thing with anime. Years ago, so much of the anime I watched was borrowed fansubs and now that it seems like everything is coming to America, I'm a little overwhelmed and finding it hard to focus. But I've been able to pick up a few titles here and there. I've been reading Fruits Basket and Hellsing, both which I think are pretty enjoyable (though I've been holding off on the latest installments so I can get my 20 percent discount at the con. It's hard ;_;). Joe's also been sending me eps of Samurai Champloo since I am on a lame 56k connection, and probably will be for life since I am cheap. The show looks so awesome. I can't wait for it to come to America.

Well, I guess that's it for me this, week. I have to start compiling thoughts for my next far-off (probably) rant so I have something more compelling to write about next time. ; )
