Oh, Mirror's Edge. What will you do next?
So I made a little kid smile yesterday. We were doing some Christmas shopping and some kid started shouting, "IT'S SANTA IT'S SANTA!!!" I looked around and saw the kid, not but 2 or 3 years old, pointing at my Santa hat I was wearing. So I whipped up my best Santa voice and shouted out to him, "HO HO HO, Meeeerry Christmas, little boy!" And he was just screaming at me and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside... am I getting sick?
CHRISTMAS. IT'S ALMOST HERE. YAYAYAYAYAYA. You should send me money so I can have my own website. And stuff. I want Left 4 Dead. REALLY BAD. Oh, and that The World Ends With You game on the DS. That looks good. Yeah... I don't have much to say. So... see ya next Saturday.
Panel 4 was drawn by my sister, Katie. Check her stuff out at Myspace.

This is absolute crap. YouTube has decided that if they think a video is profane in any way, they can "algorithmically demote" it. Basically it means this: If they find that a very highly rated video is profane, they can say, "Oh, no, that isn't all that rated at all." That's lying to the viewers! And it is absolute crap. Join the boycott on Dec. 19th and end this tyranny once and for all!

That's my friend Ian. He is who I first got to play it with. And he has the Soundtrack shirt. I envy him for it.
I only got about 7 minutes of creation in before I lost controller privileges. I managed to make Obama and Ian made Bush. It was "Bush and Obama's Fantastic Adventures Through Antarctica". And it was awesome. Then I made Obama into Samuel L. Jackson, and every time a story character spoke, I would say, "ENGLISH MOTHATRUCKA*, DO YOU SPEAK IT!?!" And when Ian died, I would hit him and say "DOES HE LOOK LIKE A BISCUT?*" It was a fun time.
I also got to play Mirror's Edge yesterday, and I got Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories. I am soooooooooooooooo glad that it got released into US. Now if only Japan would give us KH2 Final Mix... someday...

Me? Updating? What has become of the world?
If you haven't been checking on my dA page, you would be surprised to find this major graphic overhaul. And by overhaul, I mean we have arms, legs, shoes, and permanent fingers. How awesome am I? Extra special thanks to my good buddy on dA, D00pliss385 for the tips on arms and hands. And that leveling reference has nothing to do with me playing a MMORPG. Because I don't. I used to play Maple Story, but no longer.
Anyway, Christmas is coming, and my list is short this year. 2 words: VIDJEO GAYUMZ. Specifically Left 4 Dead. That game is just awesome. I also want a headcrab hat, an Aperture Science mug, a TF2 shirt, and a Companion Cube plush toy... No, I'm not obsessing over Valve Software... today... Oh, and I also want the coolest shirt in the universe: The Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt. I would sit in public areas and Rick Roll people FOREVER. So... yeah. See ya Saturday. Foo's.

'Member that contest I entered a while ago? I was one of the winners! My comic (The Internet is Scary) will be featured in a book of some sorts, and may even be posted among certain things in local libraries! I am awesome, considering this is the first thing I've ever won EVER!!! HOORAY FOR ME!!!

Sorry for missing this update. I was too busy with things that weren't playing Left 4 Dead with my friends. To make up for it, here's a scene from my awesome ninja battle from the last comic. Fill in the blanks yourself.

It's true you know. They really want to make me angry. And they're doing it. They make me wanna punch children. In their soft, dentable heads. A lot. Oh, and don't worry. The ninjas were defeated easily. They were only 6 year old girls. Go figure.
I finally got Kirby Super Star Ultra. And it is amazing. I also got Garry's Mod and Audiosurf (which was on sale for $2.49). All of which are truly awesome. And stuff. So check them out. (I'm Pietacular on Steam btw.)
And I didn't get to dress up on Halloween. And Joann Fabrics cheated me out of $21. And I hate them for it. Oh well. At least I got Kirby. And I also saw what will happen when the world ends.

Me? Updating twice in one week? Who am I and what have I done with the real me?
Anyway, ain't it spiffy that I'm updating on time? Besides that, I enjoy that Alex is really like this about Poptarts as far as I know. I'm not sure if Bryce really wanted to say that, but I haven't put him in for a while.
I got my costume idea for Halloween: Mario! I'm surprised I haven't done him already... well, I'll be working on it next week, and I'll put up some action shots of the epicness of me and Boe (Naked Snake - Metal Gear Solid 3) as we battle it out SSBB style. Well, now I'm hungry. I'll check you fools out on Halloween. Peace!
PS - Here's a hint at one of the future comics: Slugums.

I have been waiting for something like this to happen on Woot for a long time. Well, I'm still waiting. I had to screw with an action script code. Just copy/pasta this code into any internet address bar and type in anything and put in random pictures:
If you want to know what the whole thing says, here it is:
Severed Human Foot: $79.99 + $5 shipping.
Product: 1 Severed Human Foot, Belonging to the Late James Barley III.
SCARE THE NEIGHBORS OUT OF THEIR PANTS!
As if Halloween couldn't get scary enough, we went and stole the limbs off of people! We simply threw a brick at some poor fools head, and searched him for anything sellable. W found a credit card, but that was too valuable. So we decided to go for something more in the Halloween mood: A blood soaked appendage. So we cut the guy apart and sold his limbs on the internet. Perfect to complete any Halloween decoration! Collect them all!
...Wait: you're still reading this? I'm surprised you actually can. Well go ahead and try, because now I'm gonna mess with you. Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna...
The real item up for sale was a blender, by the way.

Holy karp a new comic!!! I decided I wasn't too happy with my second Half Life comic (a.k.a. I was too lazy to draw it) so I'm just moving on to Portal. Maybe I'll release it some other time. After this I'll start doing comics related to completely different things.
This was the first thing I did when I played Portal's last level. It takes a long time to ride down... Anyway, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness is fun. I'm a Level 100 Raichu, with a Level 100 Infernape, Mewtwo, and Darkrai. If you have a problem, if no one else can help you, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire Team Shockwave.
Also, I started playing the original Super Smash Bros. again. Samus and Captain Falcon are amazing. Speaking of Smash Bros., check out my deviantART profile. I've been doing memes lately, and they are fun. And it might explain why I haven't updated in forever... Anyway, see you in a while.
ALSO: Does anyone have Kirby Super Star Ultra for the DS? I really want this and I wanted to know what other people think of it.

We're halfway through the Orange Box comics. Heh... Half Life... Half way... Anyways, I planned on doing 2 comics for TF2, 2 for all of the Half Life games, and 2 for Portal. Portal was my favorite of the bunch, so it comes last. I really need to get Garry's Mod now. If anyone would be kind enough to donate 10 bucks to my poor self, it would be appreciated.
In other news, the Mercenaries 2 "Oh No You Didn't" ad let the full version of it's fun little song out on the official website. Check it out. It made me laugh. (No I'm not owned by EA!)
In also important and dreadfully painful news, school starts on Wednesday. Pray for my cursed soul. That's all for now. Check ya'll later!

Well, it's about frickin' time I got off my lazy butt and did something productive, huh? I've just been enjoying Team Fortress 2 waaaaaaay too much, and with the free weekend going on now, I've been playing with Boe a lot, who just so happened to have given me this comic concept. I might just take him on as an official apprentice for writing...
Speaking of Apprentice, I got to play Soul Calibur 4 last week, and HOLY CRAP! That is the best in the series since the second! I really wish I had a PS3/360! (Preferably PS3 for Vader.) The Apprentice is my absolute best, and has the coolest stance ever! Vader is also good, and has the cheapest throw in the world. And I love it. I also liked the Club. Racing to kill. The faster you kill, the more points you get. It's just AWESOME.
Well, after this, I'm probably gonna do a Portal comic for next week, but for now I'm going to play TF2 and be angry at God of War (if you have any tips for beating the 8th Challenge of the Gods please let me know!!!) Check ya'll later.

Yep. I got the Orange Box. And as McDonalds would say, I'm lovin' it. I've already beaten Half-Life 2 and Episode 1, as well as Portal, which is as good as I always thought it would be. But I've really been spending a lot of time on Team Fortress 2, which is the one that I hadn't played previously. Overall, the whole thing was TOTALLY worth $40. And, yes, Boe is an actual friend of mine. He doesn't have TF2, but he was the one who convinced me to purchase it. You can look him up on Steam. Look for Mλ$73R$//G21MR34P3R and tell him I sent you. As for me, you can just search for Pietacular (obviously.) More Orange Box comics to come in the later weeks. Peace out!

Okay, first things first: As usual, sorry for being so late. I haven't had as much time as I usually do for this, and I apologize. Anyway, back to business.
I saw the Dark Knight on opening Knight (I'm too good with puns) and got a free t-shirt for it. HOLY CRAP The Joker was amazing! Heath Ledger was born for that role (may he rest in peace.) He deserved, like, every actor based award for that role. I was astounded. Oh, and there are some slight spoilers in the comic, but nothing too serious. Enjoy yourselves, and go watch Dark Knight. Oh, and WALL-E. That was awesome too. Best Pixar movie to date.

Sorry about the lack of comics, I haven't been around a computer lately. But I was long enough to draw you somethin to pass the time. Considering the fact that I have been playing Mortal Kombat: Armageddon lately and Scorpion is my favorite character in the series, I thought to myself, "Hey, I should play Mortal Kombat: Armageddon as Scorpion, my favorite character in the series!" After performing a level 4 fatality on Sub-Zero and ripping his torso off, I decided to draw a picture of him. This ended up being the most detailed picture I have done in a long time. Bask in its glory. Or he will perform a level 6 fatality and rip out your arms, beat you with them, and rip out your spine. Or something along those lines.

It's a miracle! I actually made a new comic! Hooray.
This is based on a situation we had with my grandmas phone. We were heading to the train, and found that it told us to go the wrong way. We went the right way, and it started complaining about U-turns. For a while, it sounded like it was saying "Illegal U-turn" which brought up some fun jokes about it. This kept up until we got there, when we all decided that I should make a comic about it. Low and behold, bask in the fruits of my labor.
ALSO: Spore Creature creator is the best thing to happen to the internet since the internet. I have made DOZENS of creatures, all viewable on the (slow, but sure) www.spore.com. You can also download the creature creator there. You can even make videos of your creatures and automatically uploads them to YouTube! Check mine out on TotalTortilla's page!

Yep, you read right. I plan on changing STICKomix's hard to say name. My idea is for the comic to be called 2+2+5. This is just the way it's going to be. If you have a better name idea, Google for it's existence, and send me a comment with your suggestion. Since it's such a weird and random comic, think of offbeat names. If nobody can come up with a better name than mine by the end of June, then the name will be changed on July 4, as well as the website address. I'll check ya'll later.

OMG an actual comic? You know it! We finally got the repairs done, we're (mostly) all moved in, and comics will be coming out more commonly. It's a miracle!!! I also got me some Metal Gear Solid 3! I'm addicted at the moment! And, if you haven't noticed, I'm experimenting with Flash for drawing the comics instead of Alias Sketchbook Pro and Comic Life. Although it's a bit rough now, It'll become better with time.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo, amigos! Now go celebrate Mexico's independence and eat some tacos tonight! Also, I am in dire need of new consoles, an iPod Touch, and Metal Gear Solid games. (SEND ME MONEY FOR THESE THINGS!!!) And BTW, comics are just not happening until we move (by the beach! Awesome!) because the scanner is all undone. We'll get a new comic up once it's all sorted out. Which reminds me, I need money for a tablet pen which is the reason no comics are coming in high quality. But to keep you quiet, here's Spider Monkey. Peace out, foo's. *Smoke bomb* *flee*

Stabbing cereal is fun! I once went to camp, and if anyone ate more than 2 bowls of cereal in the morning, they were a "Cereal Killer," which is where this pun came from.
FUN FACT!!!: The original version of this pun involved me stabbing Tony the Tiger. Sadly, my PG reputation kept me from such a thing. Sad face. Speaking of sad, EGM has made me sad by making me fall for their yearly April issue gag. In this case, they showered me with warm promises of Lego Halo. All I felt was a shower of cold, cold lies.

(I apologize for my serious absence. I've been gone/sick and it has not been too fun. But now I feel well enough to make fun of things. Yay!)
Admit it. You were thinking the exact same thing when you saw Mario in the bee suit in Super Mario Galaxy. I haven't played it yet, but I have played Assassins Creed, and HOLY CRAP IT IS AMAZING!!! But still, SMG looks great too. As does Smash Bros. Brawl. Meta Knight is gonna be the best, I know it. Sonic at a close second. Anyway, gaming is gonna be sweet for the Wii soon, and I wish I could get in on it. But I can't. Sob. Peace out fools.

Hey, guys. Sorry I haven't updated in a while, I've been a bit sick. But in other news, if you haven't seen Cloverfield, and are not easily thwarted by motion sickness, than you need to see Cloverfield. NOW. It's amazing. Even if you do get motion sickness, go see it with a barf bag. It's insanely good!!! Speaking of insane, DON'T WATCH THIS VIDEO until you've seen the movie. And be shocked.

OMYGOSH I HAVE MADE A GAME!!! This was my final assignment in my animation class (now I get Video Production) and the entire goal is to fly the blue blob guy around and make him collect cheese. Avoid the Pac-Man mutant and the walls or you'll lose points!
Arrow Keys: Move
If the cheese disappears, hit the Reset button.

Well, I may not have a comic yet, but I do have something better. ANIMATION!!!!!! This was made for my animation class. We had to do a movie about a historical person/event, and then make it as messed up and funny as possible. For mine: Abraham Lincoln brought back from the dead as a zombie to do a talk show. Sorry, it has to be school appropriate, so no gore or fight scenes. Maybe in an uncut version... anyway, ENJOY!

Wow. I can't believe this site has been up for a whole year. I've come a long way from being Weird Comix. I've gotten a bunch of my friends to support me, got some fans off of forums, and more. I want to thank all of the readers for.. aw, god, this feels so sappy. Basically, thanks for reading, people. I'll have the comic celebrating my B-day tomorrow. On a side note, Cliffs of Dover by Eric Johnson is my new favorite song. I just like songs where the guitar is kinda the singer. Well, see ya'll tomorrow.
