The latest incentive thread

Post by TheKOT »

Seeing as the latest incentives get a lot of mention, I thought it would be a good idea to give them their own thread. Discuss em here!

That was pretty brilliant. I didn't see it comming and it made me laugh really hard. Apparantly lionel doesn't respect the awesome power of the Hokey Pokey.

Freaking hilarious. I registered just to proclaim the awesome.

So, Legendary, did you draw the comic the way you did just so it would fit both sets of "dialogue"?

Also, you're a bloody genius at messing with my childhood (or in the case of the Floyd overlays, teenage) memories.

No, I drew it that way for the incentive, and then made up the dialogue for the comic so that it would fit.

You know, this comic was part of the reason I got into Pink Floyd. So thank you, Elflad, for giving me the gift of trippy music. It is great for when I have to stay up late and write essays.

Haha, you're Strip Slaying your own strips. Brilliant!

I listened to Pink Floyd long before now, which makes refrences all the more fun.

Slight critique:
The dialogue is a bit off. It says, "You put your left hand in and you shake it all around." What it should say, however, is: "shake it all about" because that rhymes with the previous verse's ending, "out".

I gave you Pink Floyd, why can't you leave me alone? ;_;

On a serious note, I put about, but it didn't sound right for some reason, probably because of the "about" at the end of "That's what it's all about," too. But I don't think it's important enough to go back and change it, particularly because I am very tired right now.

Also, if you like the trippy music, check out Kansas. They're Prog Rock like Pink Floyd, albeit a bit more light-hearted. Their best stuff's on Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, and Masque.

She's not in the full robe. You need a full robe in order to be dressed like a peasant.

C: Look well
You try your best not to appear sickly
C: See well
You put on your glasses
C: Look at well
You stare at the healthy and avoid the horrible gaze of the sick.

Dang it!

Dust in the Wind may not be the feel-good song of all time, but Kansas is awesome. Point of Know Return is my personal favorite. I also like "Carry on my Wayward Son"

I don't want feel-good songs. My favorite Pink Floyd song is comfortably numb followed by brain damage then have a cigar. NOT feel-good types. I just want good songs. Kansas is too folk for my tastes, and no fun to listen too. Feh.

Dust in the Wind is actually probably the Kansas song that's the least like other Kansas songs. Most are full of violins and organs, and I think Dust in the Wind is the only Kansas song that has an acoustic guitar. They're really more opera rock than folk rock.

Check out The Pinnacle, Icarus [Borne on Wings of Steel], The Wall, Cheyenne Anthem, or Closet Chronicles.

Share my taste in music, damn you!

The last incentive of the Storm of Souls is a reference to Dominic Deegan? I don't remember if it was exactly a Storm of Souls because the story became so boring in the end with all the whinning Celesto and Dominic becaming Super Saiyan or something like this. :wink:

Yes, it is a reference to Dominic Deegan's Storm of Souls storyline. Specifically, this one.

That Dominic Deegan does take a long time to get through a storyline.

Win.

I actually didn't mind Storm of Souls. Then again, I was reading it archived, and could just skim over the boring parts in a couple seconds.

I worked through the archives of DD last year, but the strength of the early comics, where he actually made jokes instead of just shouting at the masses from his liberal soap box, blinded me to how much weaker (For me at least) the comics ended up getting. My comic list is doing pretty poorly: OotS hasn't made me really laugh since Shojo threw the dead guy at Roy, I abandoned DD, Bob&George is about to go bye-bye, and Captain SNES has an erratic update schedule, to say the least.

This mean that my only constants are Legendary, 8-bit Theater, and Starslip Crisis. So please, don't go serious on us, ElfLad. That would be such a pity.

You are in serious need of some Dr. McNinja

That's at least one comic that I can swear will never go serious.

Ah, I forgot about that. I finished the archives pretty recently.

That comic had me when McNinja mimed a rocket launcher to kill Ronald. Then it got me again at Paul Bunyan's disease. And frozen, sharp, deadly clover leafs, and organic jetpacks (That comic is one of the best I have ever read), and self enforcement as an evasion technique.

But yeah, the concept of a ninja/doctor doesn't lead itself well to seriousness.
