Comic 504 – “Witness”
Errol: Manpans, Brian and I were all on Skype last night after a harrowing game of Terraria. I needed to get going because the comic was not done yet, and the above happened. Poor Manpans and her guilt. Sometimes I exaggerate, sometimes I don’t. This is one of the “dont’s”. We will return to our original story arc tomorrow, but I had to remember this for now.
Brian: This was absolutely amazing… I recognize the skill of an artist when I see it! You read these comics as a normal speak-and-respond conversation, but No! In the space of half a second ‘Manda went from completely relaxed to hyper pressurized guilt and horror – “Oh no! I’ve offended him. I must fix this!”. I think she never took a breath because by the time she would have, Errol had already spoken over top of her and cranked it up another notch and the urgency to fix what she’d done was that much more! She spoke faster and faster to get more sentences out and maybe to fix the situation before she ran out of air. All the while she was “somehow” offending Errol more and more! Errol did only say those three things, but `Manpans had at least 10-15 more sentences in that same amount of time, before I burst out laughing so hard no one could hear anything… It was truly beautiful.
Whitless: Every. Single. Word. And the guilt is still there.
Errol: I love you people. 😀
Jaxom, whom we forced out of Terraria and off to bed an hour before (aka 11ish), heard it all too. I was laughing too loud. I think I woke the house.
That was a crazy amount of hilarity last night. 😀
You guys are so much fun. And, Whitless? I know exactly how you feel. :: nods::
What? I haven’t interrupted you in a conversation! 😀
Not you, lol. The guilt and feeling bad for how friends react, not knowing when they’re kidding, or upset even when I know they are kidding.
You will have to understand that I’m ALWAYS kidding. 😀
Is this a change of text color from Whitless I see?
Definitely sympathise with Whitless on this one- dealing with Errol is an art for the initiated, and I keep missing the initiation ceremony.
how? there’s one every day.
They really should post “WARNING: KEEP OUT” signs around those….
*LAUGH* Maybe he should join Terraria with us. 😀
Maybe he SHOULD!
One of these days I would like to get Bryan, Kelson and Mercenary Pen as well as a few other loyal listeners on the podcast, even if we have to use Skype.
I’m game any time…
And yet the past two episodes have only had two geeks…
That’s not my fault. Ja-Mez is always off doing important things. 😀 I have to figure out how to do a skype recording call…
And you don’t know local geeks that would get involved despite living in a megacity?
Do I really want them at my house. I have a hard enough time convincing my wife that Ja-Mez and Manda should come. 😀 😀
The reality is, we cannot really accommodate more because of the lack of mic issue.
I was thinking calling in local guests when one or more of you are absent…
Ah but we started the series with five geeks in a single episode. When you average geeks per episodes in total, we have officially broken even.
