***THE HATELABS GREAT GAME
GIVEAWAY IS BACK!!***
You have 1 weeks to get entered for the next
First of all Iíd like
to address the slew of E-mails that Iíve received complaining that I
didnít have a new strip up last week. Iíve joined yet another
band, (that's 3 for you counting, plus my solo work on the side) and
thus didnít have time to do the strip.
Now having said this Iíll let you in on the process of creating the
strip a little here. While itís obvious I only spend about an hour cut
n pasting and sometimes drawing the strip, it takes all of the 6 days
prior to actually come up with source material for it, and even then
(more often than not) I rely solely on inspiration to strike in the 11th
Such was the case this week. We were lucky enough to be interviewed on WAIF
88.3FM ( in September sometime) by one Venomous
Valdez. She is hands down one of the smartest, lovely and talented
women on the planet.
While in the studio we were asked what out turn-on's were. For me it is
finding the perfection in imperfection and the beauty where others have
never bothered to look. I've been thinking a lot about that lately,
Itís amazing how once you know someone and you really like/love them,
the smallest things (including the things that most people would
consider ďflawsĒ) become beautiful.
That freckle that she doesnít like, a little scar from a childhood
fall, her imperfect build,...all these little things, that if changed
would make her different. And who knows, maybe if her eyes were green
she wouldnít be a different person, but you have to wonderÖ.maybe
itís the *exact* combination of attributes that led up to him/her
being the person that youíre mad about today. At least I like to think
One of the other things I mentioned in our interview was my almost
obsessive lust for red hair (real or otherwise) and of course our
hostess fit the bill to a T. And while Iíve never been one to fall in
love at the drop of a hat ( especially not with women that far out of my
league) if I was, it would be the smart cute intelligent talented red's
that would do me in.
See the humor now?! Wakka wakka! eh?
Having said that, my lack of strip making
can also be attributed largely to the fact that I am thoroughly
entrenched in Star Wars Galaxies. So if I did have any free time, it
wouldn't be free for long due to my habit.
I say habit because Sony had to include an alarm in the game that you
can set to tell you that you've been playing too long. That's either
work or a habit (or both)
-Banquo *click* ......bzzzzzzzz...<NO CARRIER>
..The more you scream, the less you hear,
that's how it used to be. But I just can't tell the difference Anymore
these days. The open lips of an alter boy,
A planet spins in a silent void. The options are ever fewer On the
ground these days...
