'Sup, Dudes!?

The biggest problem with all these stupid video streaming services is that you can sit and watch an amazing TV show, but everybody else has either already seen it or doesn't want to, so when you finish it and feel lost in life, nobody cares…This is the predicament Brian and I have found ourselves today, as we have been watching the new, 2017 DuckTales (Brian watched in reality, and I watched in his imagination), and we just finished it. No spoilers, but it is AMAZING! Now we're sad and don't know what to do.

Brian tried watching some of the original DuckTales, but it has the issue of being a cartoon from the 1980s that people forgot is kind-of boring. Meanwhile, I tried talking to Anna Log about it, but she's one of those people who doesn't own a TV, because apparently the existence of around 70 years of shitty TV shows is so much worse than the literal millennia of shitty books that have been written! Yeah, sure there's a lot of shit, but that doesn't make the whole medium worthless. I mean, this week's comic was pretty pathetic, but that's because Brian spent too much time tonight making tweaks to the kerning of the ridiculous comic book font he created 3 years ago. It doesn't mean next week's won't be better!

Also, on the topic of fonts: Brian started work last week on a new comic book lettering font, but now he's going back and tweaking the current one? This is ridiculous and stupid. And also, people who design fonts for a living are lunatics. There's so much to technical crap to deal with (along with the "creative" aspects), and it's so damn boring, especially when you're a fictional character who only really exists when your creator stops screwing around on Glyphs Mini and draws your comic. That, my friends, is why most of my comics are hand-lettered in Brian's really-not-so-good handwriting. (You might say, "Oh, it's not that bad," but think about it: This is the best he can do!)

Anyway, I'm going to go now, and look-up on Wikipedia what exactly the Sunk Cost Fallacy is. Then, if it's what I think it is, I'm gonna tell Brian all about it. Thanks for wasting time with me today. I'll see you next week, along with a new episode/issue/installment of Brandy de Hex: Certified…ehhhh…whatever…

L8er Sk8ers!
