imagine if girls used the same style of joke to degrade men like “cool story bro now go chop some lumber”

GO CHOP SOME LUMBER

"what r u doing out of the garage go fix my car"

"Don’t you have something to fix somewhere."

get some duct tape & fix that attitude

Don’t you have some jars you could be opening?

if birds are avian dinosaurs, and chickens are birds, aren't dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets made out of real dinosaurs?

I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired
i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do


Sometimes I love my species. This is one of those times.

We’re putting down flooring in my room and my parents let me spray paint a devil’s trap on the floor!

One day someone will buy your house and see this and you will have damaged them for life.

One day someone will walk through that door and not be able to walk anymore.

Hello, I had been a fan of yours years ago and stopped reading Happle Tea and following after your PA rant (which was the straw that broke the camel's back in terms of things that annoyed me when it came to your views). On a whim I found you again and I realized that I never messaged you about Strip Search after it premiered/ended. I know that your initial thoughts were negative about the show when the idea was first proposed, but did you ever check it out? (Though I understand if you didn't)

Apologies for annoying you away from the site! I have to say, I find it a little funny that of all the things I’ve said and done, the Strip Search blog post on my tumblr was the one that went over the line for someone. I joke around about a quite a few sensitive topics so I get that maybe that’s a little too much for some folks. Hope I didn’t offend too much!

Anyway, I never did watch the end of Strip Search but I did give it a few episodes just to be open-minded and fair. I can’t say I was surprised by the content or the format in any way. I’m not really angry about it nor was I to begin with, I just found the whole concept pretty silly. I stand by my distaste for all things “reality” television. These game show things are goofy at best and portray a distorted version of reality at worst. I don’t necessarily think there’s anything wrong with enjoying them but I personally have never found them particularly valuable. Strip Search was, from what I could see, very much like every other “reality” game show I’ve ever turned my attention to. It was maybe a little more heartfelt and a little more honest but not enough to warrant any endorsement or continued concern from me. What I said before still stands for the most part, though I’ve mellowed out a bit on the topic.

The thing that sucks is that these guys have an opportunity to actually do something pretty cool. Their “around the office” series on PATv, wherein a documentary crew filmed their work at the offices was actually pretty interesting. The documentary format is a powerful lens they could have easily turned on the webcomics “industry” or webcomic artists individually if they’d wanted to create something insightful and honest, and that is almost certainly something I’d have watched. It’s not that the people creating the show or the people on the show are shitheads that don’t deserve any attention at all, it’s that the format they use is disingenuous by nature, they’ve all got a formula to follow and that’s sort of boring and false to me.

Take those same people, take the PA guys and do something a little bit more intimate where they explore the life of a struggling (or successful) webcomic artist and you’ve got the makings of a show I’d actually like to watch and one that I think would be more honest and valuable to people interested in the subject. But hey, that’s me. Everyone’s got different tastes, I get that.

I’ve probably annoyed a bunch of other people now :P

ADDENDUM: I’d like to add that I appreciate the fact that even when people disagree with me or dislike what I’m saying they still respond with a respectful tone. That’s really cool, you don’t really see that much on the internet. 

I am pretending to respond directly to Scott Maynard, but really an open letter that do not know the impact Strip Search has had on the artists that were in the show.

I don’t know what college is like these days, I graduated with a BFA 10 years ago. (Scary) But that’s what Strip Search reminded me of. Being trapped in a place (school, all hours of the night on animation boards or “top of the line” 3D computers) and working around other artist inspiring and being inspired. Creating friends and a bond that working on a project together that you (me) won’t get in the real world. You’re missing out on seeing that if you’re not watching Strip Search. The show isn’t about the winning strip, (Camp Weedonwantcha is excellent, btw) but it’s about the friendships created. Take a look at what these artist have done since the show. Some moved to Seattle to all be around each other. Had successful Kickstarters to run their strip without also having that grueling 40 hour work week on top. There’s a tattoo that a bunch of them got. 2 of them are now hired on to write and draw The Trenches (Which I didn’t like much, but am noticing a difference since they took over, hopefully for the better)

To say that the PA crew have an opportunity to do something cool… well they did. Something very cool and inspiring. You can argue that it wasn’t what they meant to do, but in my opinion you would be underestimating what kind of people would be trying to apply to such a thing. (As did the PA crew themselves) 

I’d ask, since you seem to already know the series, to watch the PA series episodes on Strip Search http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/strip-search-part-1. (Maybe a little of one of their PAX panels https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvKz8S0cmCU

I just feel that any artist would be able to appreciate this series and what it has done. Some may just need to push past the competition theme, which I enjoyed. This series and ‘Honey and Clover’ are my favorite shows about learning to be an artist.
