Are you noticing a pattern? (Yes, that too)

Eventually I'll move a lot of my crappy clip-art stuff over to MT. AOL just isn't the thing, as far as hosting images or doing anything else. Yes, I'm just now realizing that.

Starting off with the hugest file, check out this stupid old minicomic with Superman and Batman exploring an alternative lifestyle. (Click the little panel there for an idea.) This gay guy I know said he actually thought it was touching in an emotional sense, so you're not allowed to get offended. It's a PDF file, so you need Adobe Reader to open it. But that don't cost nothin'. And it's zipped up with a readme file explaining how to print it out and fold it up, if it's not obvious already.

And as always, if you enjoy it... [Makes meaningful gestures over to the donation buttons]

Hey, I like your format. Where did you get it? Did you design this site yourself??

You know your blog was good before you started whining for money. You sound like those starvation-belly-african-kid-commercials and in reality you are an occasionally movie-ticket-deprived-writer-of-a-me-me-me-blog o mercial. Make it end or else your readership will.

Thanks for reading, Lyz! I'll be sure to forward your message to my landlord.

I bet Lyz is really stereolobrat ...

Call me whatever you like, but I hate to see good blogs go to the wayside because people feel that because they whore out their writing on the internet that they automatically deserve to be paid. I must be one of those dot-communist, which is ironic considering that to have a computer or access to one, much less the ability to have your own site, one must have money. If you are so strapped for cash go back to the ghetto of the poor middle class suppression of free blogspot hosting.

Posted by: Lyz at June 7, 2003 07:52 AM

Well, that's certainly food for thought. Thanks again for your insights, Lyz!

I write on little scraps of toilet paper that are hidden in a box in my basement and that only I will ever read. My thoughts are pure. I will never whore them out. NEVER! And that's too bad for you because my writing is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay funnier than Treacher's. Way.

And hey JT, instead of going back to blogspot you could always slang drugs.

Ever notice that the bloggers who get all self-righteous about tip-jars are ones nobody ever reads?

Posted by: Lynn S at June 7, 2003 10:23 AM

I'm just glad nobody's having trouble printing out the minicomic.

By the way, Ella, this is one of the standard MT templates, I think. Parrott has been helping me out with all this stuff. Not really a design person myself.

In honor of Lyz, I think I'll probably go ahead and put up a tip jar on my blog. It's the least I can do to show solidarity with Treacher. Wholly selfless of me, I can assure you...

Posted by: Dean Esmay at June 7, 2003 04:32 PM

Fuck it, I'll just put Jim Treacher's tip jar on my blog.

Just did it.

Oh man! I don't even know what to say. You don't have to do that. I really appreciate the gesture, but you don't have to do that.

Posted by: JT at June 8, 2003 12:15 PM

Hey, don't ascribe too much altruism to it, I just thought it was funny. Plus, I don't mind jabbing pompous idjits like Lyz in the eye with a sharp stick as often as possible (preferably continuously).
