You know, edits like make me want to sing a little song. It goes like this:

OOOOoohhh

Fifty Percent of this comic was unnecessary

Select and delete then I’m done for the day

Resize the image, put my name as Alan Smithee

Now it’s time to go have a sand-which.

Lines like “murder him dead” are generally regarded as poor dialogue in just about every medium I’ve ever seen. Oh, and if Ethan is as big a gamer as we’ve been led to believe, it would stand to reason that he wouldn’t simply “calm down” when his PC is smashed.

I hate this one, hatehatehatehatehate. It’s not that funny, the joke is “Ethan’s clothes are dumb” and it’s all words ARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!

Here’s my edit.

So, your roommate wants to pistol-duel a penguin and the only problem you have is the fact that the bird doesn’t have thumbs? You are fucked in the head man.

Or more appropriately, Lucas is fucked in the head.

Also, you’re telling me Tim wrote a story wherein the main character challenges a penguin to a pistol duel, and the best resolution he could come up with is “He’s not wearing pants, LOL” hot DAMN you’re a bad ritor B^Uckley.

Hopefully this shit gets better, but I doubt it.

Where the Hell I’ve been

A few of you may be wondering where the hell my updates have been. Well, I’ve been busy with a few other things lately. Namely, the tabletop RPG I wrote. It’s almost ready to be published, so I’ve been pretty occupied with that. I’ll try to update copy and paste a few times a week, but I can’t promise daily updates anymore.

Okay, so there were some minor (see massive) clerical errors on my part.

Turns out, as of writing this there are 18 Copy and Pastes, not 15. Turns out, I can’t keep track of shit. I will try to fix that in the future. If you’re a regular (more like the regular), or a new reader (pfft like I get those), it should all be fixed now.

So, since we last left off the next few strips are as follows.

Shitty Guild wars reference (Seriously, I play this game and I still don’t get the joke.)

Chief Brian: Which would have boiled down to him saying “Troy was awesome it’s better than ice cream “in the first panel and “See you Wednesday” in the fourth panel.

And

A joke I don’t even get. Like is he afraid of Nintendo? I don’t get it.

The players characters? Now that, I can work with.

Ok, who the fuck does this in a co-op game? Neither I, nor anyone I game with (or have ever gamed with regularly) does this. Since Ethan’s obviously drawing from personal experience (write what you know and all that), either he or people he games with are griefers to their own “friends”. I’m all for the occasional practical joke, but seriously you’ve got to be a grade A douchewagon to treat your friends like this on a regular basis especially if you’re supposed to be COOPERATING.

From an editing standpoint, I love these. I just think to myself “well, this comic was x panels to long, done.” But I can only imagine Tim going “that’s a good joke but I need 4 panels or I’ll have to fire my writer (who is me). DAMN MY BOSS (who is also me)!!!!”

But who am I kidding; Tim’s not clever enough to do that. And that was pretty fucking terrible.

By the by, I played matrix online (MXO) a few months before it closed (I did not know it was closing when I signed up.) It was seriously the most underrated MMO I’ve ever seen, it makes me sad thinking that no one else played it. Oh well.

More players noise, and I’m okay with that. If you want to write Itchy and Scratchy meets video games go right ahead. (yes I know Itchy and Scratchy is supposed to be a parody, shut up) but the line “just as in real life” gets me. Now, I’m not in the military, but I can’t imagine that this is common practice there, so why must we equate games with reality? They’re games. Oh, and the punchline is “Fuck you Prickface” you kind of got a whole dead panel rotting after that B^Uckley.

If you’re wondering why there’s a lot more going on here word-wise than usual, it’s because I’m writing my little commentary while I edit. As opposed to my “Get home from work, punch out a blog in my underwear while I watch something on hulu” model. I like it this way a little more.

First things first. Sorry about Friday, life got in the way. You know how that can be. To make it up to you, here’s 6 updates.

I don’t have a whole lot to say here, which seems to be a running trend lately. I’m going to try and fix that.

What is so great about Lilah that this ass is willing to pay 5 grand to get her current man to walk?

No, wait, I got it. She’ll put up with fucking anything for pretty much forever, so long as you don’t cheat excessively.  At least that’s what Ethan gets her to do.

Ok, so now we’re going to get serious, and stop making dumb jokes for a strip or two right?

WRONG!

Obviously, no matter how serious the plot line, it’s important to remember that this a comedy strip and comedy must be shoved in to every strip no matter inappropriate.

When you’re writing dumb emo poetry (I did this in high school don’t judge me.) remember, less is more. Actually, Tim should just take that motto to heart with all his writing.

Original

You might notice that this is formatted a little differently than my usual 3 panel noise. The reason for that is that I feel that heart warming moment that B^Uckley and Lilah share is very important, at least I think so.  But why would you then write a whole panel of “witty” pointless, dialogue instead of centering the whole strip on the love that these two characters share? I mean that’s what you’re trying to do right?

This had to be Ethan’s thought process when he wrote this;

“Man, that’s a good first panel, I should just call it a day…WAIT! I didn’t make a video game reference. Oh NO! with My- I MEAN ETHAN’S hand in that cast, he can’t play any video games. Wait a minute! I GOT IT!” *write the other 3 stupid and pointless panels in this asspile of a strip* “Kevin Smith, eat your heart out.”

Okay, I’m all caught up now.  See you tomorrow.

I like to write in my spare time (mostly table top stuff as I am usually the GM but still). I think that doing this is helping me become a better writer, because I’m starting to learn what not to do when you write.

If I wasn’t so lazy, I’d add a 5th panel and it would just be a silent version of panel 3. You know, to really play up to awkward.

Have I said that I love Evil Lucas yet? Because I do. He just doesn’t care, and takes every opportunity to rub salt in Ethan’s wounds. Not that any of that matters because- VIJDEO GAMEZZZZ!!!!

Two motherfucking panels, pay attention B^Uckley. Granted, half of the original is all refrences to shit I cut out of the previous strip, but still….

Two motherfucking panels.

Also, I’m considering doing some of these via ustream, so it would be a cool way to just riff on the strip, and talk about shit. Anyone up for that?

I love evil Lucas. He takes so much joy in hurting Ethan, look at his huge smile. These edits are getting interesting.

I literally stared at this comic for 35mins reading it and re-reading it to find the punchline. Guess what? There isn’t one! Not in the original and definatly not now. If you find this amusing, you are a bigger person than I.

If you’re this successful, good looking, charming, and have a history of womanizing, you do not swing by and ex’s in an attempt to win her back. he just wants to bang her, and I refuse to believe otherwise.

Nothing to say here. I just hate christian. Not as a character, I hate the way he’s written, i.e. poorly. Then again, so is the rest of comic….so there’s that.

This, like everything else in in CAD has far to many words. Or rather, had.
