reasons why I suck

reasons why I suck

Postby GDI on Tue Jul 02, 2002 11:21 pm

I am dreadfully sorry about skipping all of last week and this Monday, but I have been burdened with several things that remove all of my desire to be either funny or productive. First and foremost my modem is very nearly entirely nonfunctional, and I don't want to waste my bandwidth on comic strips (you couldn't imagine how far behind I have gotten in reading other people's comics). In addition to that I have become quite depressive of late. I am wracked with the fear that in the next several months I may completely destroy my young life. I hope that you will all forgive me.

G'head, take whatever time off you need.

I mean, think about your comic, and the kind of fans it attracts...

Speed addicts have almost no sense of time, anyway.

There is a 95% chance you will leap.

Sure thing.

I am down and nothing funny is happening to me.

I am lying. Everything that has to do with me has to do with funny, it's just the way things happen for some reason. But none of that is any of the sort of thing that I want to put into what my comic has turned into. It may not look like it, but I take this thing at least half-way seriously.

I used to think that being happy made me stop being funny, but I've realized that I was wrong. I've told some of my best jokes during extatic periods of my life. I'm certainly not happy right now, and I've got the worst update schedule of the year that I've been doing this. Even before I started putting them on the internet I had a better schedule than I do now.

So what is my problem? I am living exactly the same life that I was a year ago. Maybe that is the problem. I'm not the person that I was a year ago, I've gone through lots of changes, and most of them have been for the better. Since then I've graduated from high school, I've made new friends and lost old ones. I've dipped my toes into the waters of social activism. I've done a fair amount of things.

I think that I've figured out where my inspiration has gone. God Damn It is the name of my comic. That is an angry phrase, god damn it. My comic is fueled by anger. I think back to my favorite strips and I realize that most of the one that I actually wrote are about things that make me furious. What makes me mad now? Nothing, really. At least not anything that would be appropriate for my comic. At least nothing that makes me think funny thoughts.

Right now I am always either happy or sad. Happiness leads to gloating, saddness leads to more saddness. I don't want my comic to turn into me jerking off all over myself about how great I am, and I don't want it to be a forum where I only talk about how great it would be to go to sleep forever.

The only things that have angered me at all recently are all of the things that I don't want my comic to be about. I've had a number of computer problems that have nearly driven me over the edge, I don't want to be a nerd comic. I frequent a Lord of the Rings forum (and if I may be modest for a moment, it's the best one on the internet) and people there make me mad a lot. Do you want to hear about how I made Elrian look stupid that one time? Neither do I.

So there you have it, I need to become angry at the world.

Maybe I should just start paying attention.

You could always start a new project. Maybe keep them both running or alternate between the two.


It might be a little uncomfortable at first, but once you gnaw through the gold foil wrapping with your one tooth, you find there is chocolate goodness inside. (not baking chocolate, mind you)

Otherwise I don't really know. I have a hard enough time figuring out what I should or want to do. Anyway, whenever it is you suddenly know what brand of C4 to purchase and use for entertainment purposes, be sure to let us know. (By 'us' I mean me and the radiofingernail person -- your only 2 fans not counting the japanese that can't read japanese and are stupid.)

Prostitution would be another option if you didn't do that as a hobby already.

Just so this post isn't completely pointless, just thought I'd let you know that ksndasrsrgstrgeagrgsdg!!!, and uh just do whatever. Give it some more time or something. I wouldn't mind a nerd comic so much, just mix in profanity and no one will notice.

There, I hope that was long and worthless enough.

to Fs:
radiofingernail and you aren't his only fans...i'm not japanese. i've read the comic since the beginning...and made fun of it ever since.

to B:
quit your bitching. get over your little slump and get on with it...go read the news or watch annoying commercials for good angry material...go rent a carrot top movie for fuck's sake. that'll piss you off.

or just snap clothes-pins to your genitalia, that'll either piss you off or you'll find you really like it, either way, you win
