« on: August 03, 2003, 08:26:45 pm »
I'm  gonna tally the responses to this thread.  Then we'll have a definitive favorite strip for the group.  Remember the order of your vote is important here.  A 5 vote gets one point and a 1 vote gets five points.  Any extra votes (more than 5) will recieve 1/2 point each. got that?  Ok.  


Achewood / New Ray's Place Thread (No Bad Pun's Please) (07-29-03)
« on: August 03, 2003, 03:51:04 am »
I don't have anything to say about Ray's Place at the moment, but I thought there should be an open thread here nonetheless.  So no bad puns please so we can keep an open thread in this area.  Ok just to make this post barely relevant.  My favorite Ray quote from the column

Goths get tired of constantly being told that they "look like idiots" and "are annoying" and “can’t work the Drive-Thru if they keep dressing like ‘Dracula’s Knob-wipe.’”



Achewood / Chat with Onstad

I'll bet Choop didn't even re-create Teodor's dance from scratch.  You stole that shit from Onstad didn't you.

Achewood / Open Letter to Greeting Card Companies

as far as how good it was, well, go back and read the first ever Achewood strip. Go on, I'll wait. Was it hilarious? Or was it a beginning, and introduction to grander things? Or was it just confusing and weird?

Confusing and weird, perhaps, but also the most surreally funny strip of the entire run.

I got to achewood via Lileks.

That's exactly the path I took. What led me to the Frahm pages?

I discovered Lileks via his Frahm pages which were mentioned in Playboys living online section.


Achewood / Onstad does not deserve this
« on: August 02, 2003, 04:40:00 am »
Okay, it looks like we made it a little over 12 hours before our first asshole poster.

Why was this an asshole post?  I think they are just saying what a lot of us are feeling.  I mean, the man writes a funny cartoon (well i'm in the it ain't what it used to be camp), but clearly he's a pretty huge prick towards his fans.  He's complained in several interviews about how much work this is for him so maybe he's gotten burned out.  That's another post for another time though.  He gave us like zero warning that he was closing down the board, he's expressed hostillity towards the very existance of this new board and he sure as hell ain't being very helpful in lettin' anyone know it exist.  Also, someone mentioned that they have been waiting a long time for their merchandise.  Me too.  I've been waiting almost a month for my shirt and i'm starting to feel ripped off.  Jough, don't you feel just a little bit like a chump for spending so much time supporting someone who hates you?  He's even taking to taunting his fans in his latest cartoon.  I'll continue to read achewood (as long as it remains funny), but I ain't gonna pretend that Onstad is a super sweet guy.



Achewood / Merchandise Sales
« on: August 01, 2003, 05:20:42 am »
I wonder if Onstad has considered the fact that his message board really drives merchandise sales.  I predict a marked decrease in merchandise sales, but we will have no way of ever knowing this to be fact.  If he starts suddenly hawking the shit out of it on his site (like he don't now, right) that would be one clue though.

hmm -- you think onstad wants a messageboard about his site to even exist?

Not much he can do about it now.  I think this is fantastic.  Onstad is an awesome cartoonist, but a lousy messageboard moderator.  Now he's free to make his comic in peace and we can talk about it without fear of annoying the boss.  Much, much, much better arrangement I thinks.
