Fun times in the city

UPDATE: Important announcement! Scroll down!

Alright, where shall we begin today, children? Perhaps on chapter three?

Yes, I know the Star Wars Trilogy is out on DVD. Yes, I own it. Yes, I know what changes they made. No, I’m NOT going to make a comic about it. Why? Because I just don’t give a fuck. It’s been beaten to death. Who cares anymore? They aren’t our movies, they’re his. I can understand exactly where George Lucas is coming from, as a creator. If I had the time, I would love to go back and redraw the first two hundred CAD strips. And you know what would happen if I did? I’d start getting emails of “I liked the old version better!”.

I don’t have to like his changes (some I do, some I don’t). No, we don’t have to like them, but we do have to live with them. Just stop crying like a little girl about it. Sheesh.

The limited edition Chef Brian shirts have been doing incredibly well. So either Chef Brian’s fans are just leaping all over this, or you guys really like the idea of the limited edition shirts. I’ll repost the shirt information below this post.

I picked up The Sims 2 earlier in the week. Despite random crashes, this game is more fun and addicting than the original was.

My first order of business was to recreate Caesar and Fernando Suave, the two latin brothers that my best friend and I had made in the first game. The entire goal was to see how much money, how much sex, and how much gaudy furniture these two Don Juans could acquire, right down to the leather leopard print sofa. We even put our own music into the game’s radio system, so when we flicked on the box, Tito Puente’s fiery sounds filled our little virtual house.

However, there were obviously limitations in the first game, that prevented us from completely fulfilling our little vision of pimpdom. I am pleased to report that in The Sims 2, Caesar and Fernando are alive and well, and Fernando is working for the mob, and Caesar has about six girlfriends. Rock on, Will Wright. Rock on.
