N.U.S. October 6, 2007

'Ello folks.

Ayame here, welcoming you back to Newscast with an update. The comic, okay. Turned out well, lots of last-second rewrites and all. Still, I think its alright. The BG in panel 4 is one of my favorite to date. I might be getting the hang of this comic thing.


So, as many of you are already aware, I have moved again. That's right, my greatness was TOO much for Salt Lake City, so I have broken my earthly bounds and moved to....Las Vegas. Why? Well, it wasn't my first choice, believe me, but there's a good school here and I am ready to move on with my life. I was sick of working for minimum wage at GameCrazy -don't get me wrong, I miss the store, and my co-workers, but lets be honest here...I couldn't let myself end up there forever. I'm an artist. And no ammount of my own mediocrity will dissuade me.

So I'm living in an apartment with 3 guys...kinda good, kinda not-so-good. They're all pretty cool, share many of my intrests, and leave me alone when I want to be all quiet and moody, but on the other hand...I AM LIVING WITH THREE STRANGE MEN. Bathing, dressing, etc are awkward for me, and many doors are locked during these exercises.

Also, something smells like rotten fruit.

Once again I find myself utterly alone. I don't make friends very easily, and I am fairly certain that my classmates are trying to avoid being near me. I wouldn't have thought so, but I find myself with a 6-person buffer zone in all my classes...Oh well. More time to merge with my DS and Phantom Hourglass.

Also, I finally broke down and bought Halo (the FIRST one) the other day. I'm going to see if it's really as "OH MY GOD IT'S THE GREATEST GAME OF ALL TIME IT'S SO ORIGINAL AND SUCH A GREAT STORY AND SO UNIQUE AND SO PERFECT OMFG LOL ROXXOR!!!!11one11!1" as everyone says it is. My money is on 'no' because I'm not an idiot.

Still waiting for my Xbox 360 to come back to me.


Supposing I have some time next week, I am taking down the Newscast Store. I am doing this because first of all, it's presumptuous to have merch for a comic that is read by MAYBE 16 people. Secondly, the stuff that I was offering was good-quality screen printed stuff, not those cheap iron-ons. I have one of the first 'Gotta Fly' shirts. I wear it often, and I have washed it LOTS. It's still in great shape...anywho, the company that used to make them for me realized that they shouldn't have been doing my stuff at such insanely low prices, and as a result, they began charging an arm and a leg.

So yeah, sadness.

I'm also trying to fix the images on the RP page, in case any of you have been keeping up with it. There's also some general site maintenence I've been meaning to do, and if I get my homework down enough in advance, it might just happen.

So yeah, sorry for the long post, but it's been a hectic time. Enjoy the comic and I'll see YOU on Saturday. Well, I mean, I technically won't, but if you come back here you'll find a new comic which was the implication of that statement and...look, just....yeah.

Oh, by the way, 1408 is disappointing.

"Now look, if this is bad news, I want you to speak slowly and deliberately."
