So, how y'all doin'?

Anywho, surprisingly, I'm actually looking forward to a few movies coming out soon. For starters; Tekken. However, I'm also kinda cautious about this, mainly because it's a computer game turned into a movie and, as past experience has taught me, these are really easy to screw up. Now, you'll probably all be like 'Oh, but it's just Nathan saying that, he's a cynic, and really doesn't know much about these things." Oh really? Case in point; Tomb Raider. Now, I'm not even kidding about this. There were only two selling points to this movie, and they're both attached to Angelina Jolie (Ba-dum tish). No, I kid about this a lot, but seriously, the only reason this movie had a sequel, let alone the first movie, was because of all those hormonal, teenage guys out there who simply wanted to drool over Angelina in leather (see my explanation on fanboys back in comic 104 if you need further explanation). If you need further convincing on how Hollywood loves to destroy our childhoods, see THE_SUPER_MARIO_BROTHERS_MOVIE. Now, if you've just clicked that link, and now you think I'm joking or that it's a fan made trailer, I'm not, and it's not. That was the first ever computer game turned movie made. Personally, I'm surprised they made anything past that.

Secondly, I'm really excited about Scott Pilgrim versus the World. Wierd title, cool concept. It's based off a graphic novel (ala 300, Watchmen, etc.) but not an overly violent sort of one. It's very stylyzed violence with very computer-gamish sort of action sequences. In my mind, it has a lot going for it. For starters, it stars Michael Cera (Juno and Superbad) and is directed by Edgar Wright (Mr Shaun of the Dead himself). The graphic novel(s) it/themself is written by Bryan Lee O'Malley, whose style is very easily translated into a cinematic script, and if you have any free time without anything to do, I'd suggest both the comics and the movie.

Third, and lastly, again based off a comic series, is Jonah Hex. It's a weird little spooky western thing (Think Constantine crossed with The Good, the Bad and the Ugly). Like I said, another one based on a comic series, originally released by DC (If you're not comic savvy, DC released Superman and Batman). It looks interesting, though it doesn't really have any big name actors like the Scott Pilgrim although it should be an awesome movie.

Anywho, I've taken up enough of your time, so I'm'a head off now.

Oh, right, just on a final note, the release dates for Australia: Tekken  and Jonah Hex on the 5th of August, and Scott Pilgrim will be released a week later, on the 12th.

Delays expected

So anyways, I've been up for the better part of twelve hours coughing up parts of my lungs which- now I'm no doctor, but bear with we on this- I'm pretty sure are vital. So if Tuesday comes around and you still haven't heard from me, that's why.

No, but I'm kidding. About the lungs part anyway, I'm still not feeling the best I have, so I'm just letting you guys know that mondays comic might be a little bit late. Hopefully I should be better by then, but if not I might be a bit slow on getting it up. Check back in on tuesday if that happens to be the case.

re: Todays comic

I cannot stress the fact that IT IS NOT WHERE YOU THINK! enough...


And it's DEFINITELY not where Darah thinks it is. I'm sorry, I know how disappointing that is.

Crazy-awsome hats, and some that are just crazy

You know what I found today? A shark hat (LINK!). Henceforth known as the BEST HAT IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! Followed closely by THESE... In third place is Jack Sparrow's ha- no wait, sorry... Captain Jack Sparrow's hat...

Last place goes to THE_RAINBOW_CRAZY-HAT..

And, in other hat-related news, apparently CANADA_IS_NOW_A_HAT...

I am, however, open to any suggestions of other contender to the prize of BEST HAT IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. Send me a link if you so wish, and if I find the hat a worthy contender, I'll put a link on the site...

IT'S OVER 100!

So anyways, as some of you will have noticed, I recently passed a hundred comics... Surprisingly, I haven't quit in a furious rage by now, which was my first prediction when I started the comic. My second prediction was that if the first didn't happen, I'd get awesome and famous, but that hasn't happened either (But here's hoping)...


Anyways, on a not so serious note, did you know that in France, in the 1700's, a pig was executed by public hanging for the murder of a small child? I'm not kidding... I couldn't even make this stuff up if I- well... no, I probably could make something like this up if I really wanted to, but I digress... A number of things bother me about this... Firstly: What thought process do you have to go through to find a pig guilty of murder?! What, was the pig possessed by an evil spirit? Or was it simply exacting vengeance for its slaughtered pig comrades? Secondly, on a more technical note: How would that even work? I mean, wouldn't the pig just slip through the noose? You'd have to, like... invent an entirely new knot simply so that you could hang a pig! Lastly, and not really a query, but those peasants watching must've had a field day! There must've been a massive brawl with all those onlookers attempting to get ahold of that free bacon for their dinner.

Mmmmm.... Bacon.... Tasty, delicious, bacon...
