For instance, my web-comics. It's come to my attention that I don't even READ my webcomics as regularly as the creator creates them. Now this is arguable that the creators job is to create and entertain while my job is to be a code monkey, and therefore we have different focuses and direction. Although I must say, I WISH I could read my comics more regularly.....DAMN YOU CORPORATE WEB-FILTER!!! DAMN YOU!!!
But, just for entertainment's sake, I'll share a couple of my more favorite comics that help me deal with the gravity of the situation in regards to my own geek-ness. A quick list follows:
- Penny-Arcade. My favorite for many years
- Ctrl-Alt-Delete Behind Penny-Arcade, but still freaking awesome
- Sluggy Freelance. Yet another that I've been reading for ages
- Real Life Comics Amazing what a person can do with Illustrator
- Something Positive One of the few "Not Gamer Related" comics I read
Now these are just a few that get me through the week, I'll probably update sometime with a complete list. That or, once I actually finish my website design, I'll have them all linked up there under my "Influences" section.
I forgot to tell you, Amazon's got cheap Xbox 360 wireless controllers, although I'm sure you've found them already. Just figured I'd throw that up there for the hell of it.
