20100121 (13) – Dropped the Apple logo off of the Apple //c monitor. One of those little pieces of equipment I miss Deliberately Losing In A Move, now that I think of it. Replaced the coffee cup logo with the DCR logo.

20100131 (2) – Fixed a long-standing art glitch, and started “today” (this part of today, anyway) with an easier bit of rewrite.

20101225 – Original page metadata:

See previous re: de-copyrighting, and earlier previous re: de-footnoting. One of those pages that’s had a lot of tiny adjustments that add up into what would have been a Major Overhaul if this scene were a part of The Dualist.


2008.04.19 – The biggest change is to Curtis’s glasses in panels three and six, which used to look like total ass. Now they look less like total ass and more like regular garden variety ass.

Strip 038, 20051026

Whitehouse is dumping his final out to video- in this case using an Apple //c head as the NTSC display plugged into a generic VCR. The scale is off, but not by much – the //c monitor is wee. The machine feeding the VCR is Whitehouse’s 8600.

In panel two, Jason is dumping the rest of the “vodkee” into a Josta bottle. While the whole “viral marketing” thing didn’t take off, it looks good on a resume (same site I swiped the image from). I’m one of the few people I know who actually remembers and liked the stuff – though I’m not the only one with fond memories. There are others.

20:24 <@bda> solios: Yup.
20:24 <@bda> Yuma nerds were all about that shit.
20:24 <@bda> My friend Rob made the first Josta webpage.
20:25 <@bda> They sent him schwag for it.

Further proof that nothing ever really dies – Game Players cover swiped from Trenchman.com, which saves me the time of scheduling a trip back to my parents house to dig up that issue (and others) for scanning. If I wasn’t so hard up for cash right now, the Pixy Junket trade paperback would be rocketing towards my mailbox at warp factor FUCK YEAH! – another period piece with issues sitting in storage. Polybagged, boarded and sealed in a 40mm ammo can, I think – unlike gaming magazines, I actually took care of my comics.


^– all of that was entered when this strip was loaded. It’s being published while I’m more drunk than I’d planned on being, roughly five hours from hopping a train to Philly for Pumpcon. W00t-w00t.


Strip 040, 20051028

It’s quicker to go through the mall (or the mall garage) and down the front steps of Allegheny Center, then down sixth street and over the bridge. Unfortunately I don’t have pictures of that area at the moment, and since the weather has been cold, grey, SHITTY DRIZZLE all damned week, Whitehouse is taking a route I have a useable record of.

[ Assuming all goes well, I should be publishing this from Philadelphia. ]


  • Jason Whitehouse’s redneck roommate. Curtis isn’t a terribly complex individual, and is in many was the archetypical art student – interests include but are not limited to video games, anime, Star Trek, tabletop gaming...

  • The king of social engineering, the crown prince of noise, and a self-described “Post-American Electro-Snob.” Jason has a deep interest in industrial, electronic, ambient, metal and gothic music, and a well-researched interest in radio...
