REAL BALLERS VOTE

Tue, 11/04/2008 - 00:15 by Ananth in response to an open letter to all registered US voters

At the risk of our own street cred, we're coming to you with a plea that you please, please please vote. I know it's not very cool or edgy and in fact it's very goody two-shoes, but that's okay. We're willing to risk our rep for your sake, and for the sake of America. 

Also, tomorrow Starbucks is giving away free cups of coffee and Ben & Jerry's is giving away free ice cream to people who have voted. So there you go - if you're a punk and you were thinking of skipping out, now you have some incentive to drop in at the polls. 

More often than not ...

Wed, 10/29/2008 - 23:39 by Ananth in response to abandonment

  ... this is how it happens. It's not really on purpose, but with 4 people on 4 different schedules, things can get a little tricky to coordinate. Conrad finds himself in this situation a couple of times a week on a pretty regular basis. I get the feeling that he's getting used to it, or at least learning to expect it. The joke's on him ... One day we'll drive away and never come back. 

Cicadas!

Tue, 10/28/2008 - 00:52 by Aido in response to boys are wimps
 My great love for bugs isn't much of a secret.  One of my favorite things about summer (I mean it's fall now, but this comic was actually drawn some time during August) is catching/playing with/very nicely harrassing cicadas and cicada nymphs.  DON'T LISTEN TO CONRAD, THEY ARE ADORABLE.
 
We completely forgot to mention -- Rich Stevens, Meredith Gran, and James Kochalka all made small cameos in the last comic.

SPX: A Retrospective

Wed, 10/22/2008 - 22:38 by Conrad in response to conrad's fourteen new friends

This year was my first year attending SPX, and if this is any indication of how things normally go down here, it will most certainly not be my last.

Shanty-town dresser

Mon, 10/20/2008 - 23:12 by Ananth in response to rest in pieces
Yuko's old dresser was a good, solid piece of IKEA furniture, one of the more expensive ones. The problem was in the old drawer rail system IKEA used (they've since discontinued it) and The House that Yuko lived in while she was in Rochester. Spacklehouse is a story for another time, but in any event the place was a great deal for the rent the landlord charged, even though it was falling apart at the seams.
 
Unfortunately everything sagged, including the staircase steps and Yuko's bedroom floor.

 This is basically what happened at SPX a couple of weeks ago ... as you can see, we make great effort to keep up to date. I got sick for a week, Conrad got sick for a day or two, and Yuko got sick for under 6 hours, which I think might be a record for her longest time being sick (she has biologically superior genes). I'm still getting over the last of it. 

Anime USA

Mon, 10/13/2008 - 23:59 by Aido in response to Puck Fair

 Hey, we're back from Anime USA!  Super special thank you's to the staff for treating us so well and the dealer's room security dudes (Gabriel, Rachel, Vincent, anyone I forgot) for being so awesome and making me into a small living legend among the staff and dealers for drawing those bizarre mutated Kirbies.  If any of you have scans or photos of them, I didn't have the foresight to take pictures of them!  You can e-mail me over at contact.johnny.wander@gmail.com 8D

 

Puck Fair

Mon, 10/13/2008 - 23:59 by Ananth in response to Puck Fair

Yuko and I were in NYC for MoCCA this year, so that dates this comic by a few months. There's a building across from MoCCA with a sign that says PUCK FAIR, and if you are a smaller person and stand just so, it seems to say something else entirely. Certainly nothing appropriate. 

Things keep happening!

We caught word earlier today that Bryan Lee O'Malley has created a Livejournal Syndication (Syndicated Livejournal?) driven by the Johnny Wander aggregate RSS feed! Many thanks, good sir!

The Last of Our Terrible Family

Thu, 10/09/2008 - 00:29 by Aido in response to a valid point

 John makes number four of our extended roommate family.  He and I have actually been living together for five years now!  He also has a good fourteen inches on me.  And he does say things like this.

If you missed the post from Conrad earlier, he's been a MACHINE today and set up an RSS feed for us.  Thanks again man, you're the only reason this site is running.  Well, you and George.  Hi, George.
