Some of this strip is going to hearken back to the topics of FLEM. Since we have another goth main character and all.
what would be cool is if you made this playlist and chucked it online. i’d like to see what you’d pick
*dies* you will never give up hating on manson will ya? And i will laugh my fucking ass off every time you do. While eating cake and sodomizing the missus. and yeah, listening to something else.
parkway drive is fucking awesome right now
as the missus in question, i’m sorely tempted to bring cake home and try to demand some sodomy after the medicals tomorrow, love.
GOTH SPAT! GOTH SPAT! bad tats at 10 paces? or orrible poetry at 3 pm?
More like ‘orrible poetry at 3am after far too much Absinthe.
I always assumed Mick was a fan of Jimmy Buffet, though no idea how I got to that.
I had a brief tangle with the goth/industrial scene years ago. The closest I get these days is Type O Negative’s Bloody Kisses, which is what got me started in the first place.
Type O Negative is so fucking metal.
Wow… in its own way, this strip immediately made me think of the many times FLEM poked at Andrew Eldritch for his ‘I’m NOT Goth/Industrial’.
Good times, good times.
Is this intended to foreshadow a cake and sodomy scene?
Blah, didn’t see the above comments.
I went to a Marilyn Manson concert summer of ’97. (I went because (1) Thrill Kill was opening, and (B) it was free–somebody else had already bought the tickets and invited me.) Being in the middle of a crowd full of rednecks and Mansongoths was one of the more disturbing things I’ve been through in my life–felt like being dropped into a neo-Nazi rally. (Mind you, I was pretty far from sober, so you should take my perception of the events with a grain of salt.)
On the plus side, we bumped into a real (and really hot) goth woman in the parking lot after the concert, and spent some time hanging out and talking trash about Manson, so it was all good.
I will not be offended if J & Jack have a distant background easter egg-like guest appearance, possibly involving an ax. It’s the right area, after all.
FLEM? No not FLEM. You promised never to bring that up again.
Actually never seen it before. Gone to read it….
By the way, how come FLEM isn’t in the links here or over at Two Lumps?
At least I don’t see it listed.
Honestly? Because it’s ancient history. I originally ended the Jay series more than ten years ago. Looking back at those strips, I don’t regret doing any of it, but it’s not indicative of my current works whatsoever. Shit, I barely knew how to use PSP when I did that comic, and the vast majority of it was drawn with a ball mouse.
I believe there comes a time to retire old works. Creators need to keep fresh – and although I liked doing the Jay series, it’s just really not me any more.
Just promise not to take it offline. Or at least warn us if you do so we can download and archive. FLEM is one of those things I constantly flip back and read through from time to time. Like old Monty Python sketches, the Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy, Invader Zim, etc.
What with Keenspot circling the drain, I can’t promise anything. The FLEM archives are up there as a favor from Chris Crosby. Honestly, I’ll be surprised if the company lasts another 5 years. If/When it folds… ehn. People can host their own archives, if they like, provided they aren’t getting ad revenue. If they ARE making money off hosting my archive, I’ll at least want a cut. But if Keenspot closes, I won’t really care enough to put the FLEM comics back online. They’ll eventually go out to pasture.
Gordon’s not finished reading it!
I must say, the last line of the comment just cause me to add some Angels on Acid to a playlist already populated with Combichrist, Laibach, Rammstein, Nachtmahr, The Retrosic, Slipknot, Phosgore, Grendel and Psyclon Nine. It’ll be in good company, and I can honestly say I never expected to get music recommendations from a webcomic.
Angels on Acid was a pleasant surprise when I found them about a year ago. I usually draw comics while listening to shit that our fans (especially fans of Two Lumps) would find unexpected and noisy. My recent kick has been Aesthetic Perfection (sort of a cross between old NIN and Combichrist), 5FDP, and Fear Factory’s newest.
There’s nothing wrong with liking Marilyn Manson. There is something wrong with thinking that means you like Goth music, since Marilyn Manson is obviously Glam Rock
