That sounds like the tipping system in Space Taxi on the Commodore 64. The faster you go to your fare, and the faster you got him to his destination, the bigger the tip you got. That was such a cool game. But back on topic... I do my best to tip well at restaurants. I waited tables once, for a brief...

Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie. The best ever!

And I happen to like those powder-flavored soft pretzels. Call me a mass-market fad follower, I guess, but if I like it, I like it. :D

I saw this in a message board for another comic, and thought it was hilarious. Your mileage, of course, may vary. :D

So what was your favorite take of Blade Runner? Original? Director's Cut? I only ever saw the original, and that was some time ago.

There's also one other point to consider: When a song is "sampled" or recycled into something else for a new artist, royalties do get paid. Of course, with all of the brouhaha going on around the music industry, it becomes doubtful the artists themselves have any say in the permissions or even recei...

I feel your pain!!! Being a huge 70s progressive rock fan, but still enjoying many of the classics of the 70s and 80s, I have run into some extraordinary ignorance. Of course, many prog rock classics were based upon classical pieces, typically romantic and 20th century era stuff, but the bands usual...

Shannon, just to let you know, I voted for you. I like the fact that even though the Shannon of the strip can be jittery around people, he manages to stay polite and even chivalrous. For example. the way he invited Brandy along to the picnic anyway even after he found out she deceived him. He just k...

Yeah, I got the impression that he was referring to what he was going to do to Brandy. I think Shannon needs to storm over there kick Chet's ass. :D

Well, I'm still around, and reading through the forums. I just don't like to post unless I have something mildly interesting (to me, at least) to say. So, to say something mildly interesting:

Something mildly interesting.

There's a new superhero in town

He slinks through the city streets, clubs and bars, looking for trouble. He's ready to take on the fight for justice for the little guy. And as he readies his Hammond of Justice and Moog of Righteousness, you can sleep easy, knowing the criminals never will. Because he is... THE WAKEMAN ----- Sorry,...

You know, you just have to love a forum that regularly uses the band Yes in analogies. :) I find the dichotomy between art and entertainment to be an interesting one, as I've always seen more similiarity than difference between the two. If an artist created an image people love to look at, is he not...

There is another angle to consider: The act of entertaining is an art. As an example, let's take a subject I love, which is stand-up comedy. A stand-up comedian, a good one, is generally not born or made overnight. They practice. They spend a lot of time in the smaller clubs and venues, and in all t...

Just my $0.02 US

Speaking as a musician, I will say that I don't particularly like music with lots of profanity or references to certain acts that would make the Marquis de Sade do a double-take. However, I do not agree with censorship in the least, and the reason is simple. It starts innocuously enough, and the vas...

Well, I woke up thinking it was quite hilarious that Figment and Barry would be used as characters in a commercial for a doughnut shop.

Irony, or just plain dream-style disjointed weirdness? You be the judge. :)

Ambient...

Ambient music is described by Brian Eno as music which can be listened to as easily as it can be ignored. This is as opposed to Muzak, which is basically just ignored. The Harmonia disc falls somewhere in between ambient and rock, which I guess makes it kinda progressive. Nevertheless, it's a very g...

Retroactive Nostalgia

On my way back from lunch today, the classic rock station here played the Timothy Leary song, by the Moody Blues. This got me to thinking about whether it is possible to have nostalgia for a time you weren't even around for. While scientists and philosophers the world over may argue this point, I ha...

Well, this may not be news, per se, but I think you'll enjoy it. Maybe it will even come true. I had a dream last night that QPQ was made into an animated cartoon for television. The catch, is that it was for a commercial. That seemed slightly ironic. This is not the first time I dreamed about an on...
