Gift Receipt – A Holiday Interruption

* * * * * 1 Nice Folks Voted

Hi friends! A new comic is here to oogle and gafaw upon. Please do one at a time as doing both at once could be dangerous. It is a brief interlude from the epic tree tales we’ve had lately. Don’t worry, the tree will be back very soon. Or not. Kind of sick of the tree so I hope it goes away.

Funny and intelligent don’t always go together. But once in a billion they do and you get a cool person that is slying subverting your viewpoint. Cap’N is just that sort of zany person I think we all wish we grew up with. And then had weekly adventures. Thanks for your intelligent humor and wit!

I hope you had/are having a wonderful winter holiday of your religious flavor. Did you? Did your religious or social norms eek out a fun gift?

Mine sure did. My wonderful mom got me a light which thinks it is the sun, but it is still really a light. But in theory it will cheer you up. So go light! And there were many other neat things like a picture frame that is actually a monitor, and a tiny Wii statue which is actually a giftcard. Come to think of it most of my gifts were masquerading around as other things as I opened them.

I’m beginning to doubt the clothes or books I received are really what the seem. Perhaps the clothes are really books and the books are clothes, and when I read I’ll look silly with my face mashed up close trying to decipher a sweater in the light.

As far as a gift giver, I failed. All gift cards purchased in a frantic rush due to the avalanche that is self-employment. I’m trying to pull it in a bit now so I can breathe and draw again. I like these things. (Blog tip #186: Take a stand. ie, I like breathing!) I did buy a trip for Hawaii for my stunning bride but this was more as an offering to goddess then a friendly giving gesture. The gods can get angry from time to time.

Here are a few early new years resolutions for the comic:
- I want to post art everyday. Even if it is just a sketch or random idea.
- I’d like to share a book I’m reading every week. I have a pile literally 4 feet high next to my desk I next to conquer possibly publicly.
- I’d also like to share a page from the big Pixelton Graphic Novel in early form each week.
- Get a regular posting schedule again because this month has been harsh without your kind ideas!
- Anything else you’d like to see/hear/laugh with?
I’d love to hear it.

The book is coming along so well it has been hard to work on the web comics. I’m very proud of it. It is the best thing I’ve ever touched by a lifetime. Go self-actualization too! (See Blog tip#186)

I may also quit playing games for a few months as I really beginning to fear I am addicted.
Normally I make fun of this particular line, but since it is my own I can only stare impotently. Hrm. But after beating all of Orange Box, Mass Effect, Halo 3,  COD4, Bioshock, Guitar Hero 3 and many others, I have to admit real life is slightly less interesting. I won’t even touch Mario as I beat Sunshine with almost all stars in less than 24 hours, so I know I will be absorbed in total into its’ bliss.

Enough blah blah – thanks so much for reading! I hope you have a great holidays and a wonderful intro to the new year!

Full of animation and activity,
- Josh

24 insightful ideas to “Gift Receipt – A Holiday Interruption”

    I can just picture Santa throwing those cookies like ninja stars, locked in mortal battle with the world’s most pissed-off square. But c’mon — nobody can beat Fil. I couldn’t, but I tried and I died horribly. That was the worst birthday ever, but at least I managed to save Christmas on my way back to the land of the living.

    As for things, there’s always that big Pixelton project you had us suggesting ideas for. What happened with that? Was it kidnapped by gorillas and sold to a white slavery ring run by hornets? Because that’s terrible.

    Either way I wanna wish you a great whatever you celebrated this December. I had Christmas AND Hanukkah because my best friend in the whole wide world happens to be Jewish. She thinks she’s so great…

    Ha, ha – true that Harlequin. When I draw Fil he usually berates my ability to draw his actual curvy and quite voluptuious bottom. But I refuse to draw a square with junk in the trunk.

    Oh, and I did a new post directing all Animation ninjas HERE. To the new secret lair. I’ll throw down in a few days with some sketches of any ideas people may have. :D

    Thanks sir, and same to you! I celebrated Christmas though it is only in tradition. Crazy to think I thought about becoming a pastor when any of it’s ideas make me so angry now…

    Heh, really? My dad’s a pastor, and I admire him for it, but I couldn’t ever do that job. Too much stress.

    Oh yeah! I mean no offense to anyone religious, but I guess I’ve gotten too cynical and selfish to even entertain the idea. It takes so much pure condensed hope and belief – I admire anyone that can do this!

    My wife is a teacher and I see how selflessly she works and I imagine it is very similar but without the government funding…

    Hilarious. I shed a tear – partly out of the demise of santa, but mostly out of pure bliss in such an awesome comic.

    I am right there with you on the gaming addiction my old friend. I am feeling that it is due more to the recent rush of amazing digital entertainment and not to any true issue with yourself. You honestly are only a few games away from being done with the must-plays and soon we will be back to a nice length of time where nothing good comes out for a while.

    Trust me, nothing on the near-horizon is half as fun as the list that you just wrote up, so fear not. You really don’t need to cut yourself off, games like sonic and mario at the olympics and other bits of mediocrity like it will bring your hobby to a normal level all on their own. Hell, you nailed it though – life is much less interesting by comparison so plug your ass in and live you magnificent bastard!

    Hello, Mr. Farkas!

    Excellent comic! :-D If you don’t mind, I’ve posted this comic on my LiveJournal with a link to your great website. (If you do mind, just let me know.) Here’s the direct link to my post…


    Oooh… Zombie Santa… But, are we sure Santa’s actually dead, Cap’n? And if he is dead, do we have to wait another year before we get to see Zombie Santa enjoying his milk and brains?

    wow, i’d say good job, but the fact is santa cant be beaten. i mean come on! he’s the devil in poorly made sheep skin. all red, gives the bad coal (which is related to FIRE AND BRIMSTONE!!!!) and he’s one dyslexic away from having the name too!

    if i were fil i’d be sleeping with some holy water

    You rock Christopher! Thanks so much sir. :D

    And that_dude, I think you may just be right. Fil didn’t kill Santa, he killed an evil demon bent on destroying childhood. Yeeaaahhh. That should do nicely.

    Whoever he killed, it’s obvious that he did it in a blood thirsty fashion so he’s alright in my books.

    My clan celebrates mostly any holiday linked to the winter solstice, usually including Festivus, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and the Solstice itself. As for stuff, I got a DIY battery kit for my failing iPod…I have to admit I was initially offed by the idea of another thing to do in my already overbooked winter break, but it ended up being very easy.

    Oh yeah, and pastorship? Talk about anal retention. It’s twice as bad if you actually want to believe the stuff at the same time that you’re preaching it. It was for similar reasons that my family and I disassociated ourselves from the C/JC/LDS.

    Oo! I know, it’s a triple post, but I have this awful habit of posting before my thoughts are fully collated into a pretty form. It’s one of my battle tactics in the war against OCD, see.

    Anyway, you seem to have some very good ideas on what to do this year. (I don’t, yet.) You should split the site into a few distinct categories, e.g. one for the daily sketches, one for the comic itself, one for your weekly book (thanks for the idea ;) , and then everything else. This will make the tsunami of human data that you will generate (wheee!) much easier for your readers to take in, I think.

    Great thoughts Bug. I gotta say, these made me chuckle. I didn’t even know they had “guild your own” iPod chargers. That makes me kind of want an iPod to build one.

    I’m going to aim to start a ‘sketchin next week now that I’m able to escape the blackhole that was New Year’s.

    I go away from the interwebs for several weeks and there’s only one new comic? :(

    It’s a good’un though. The cookies are a nice touch. But it really would be good if you accurately rendered Fil’s voluptuous bottom. Maybe I’ll have a crack at it.

    It must be stated that a gold phone is the most tacky thing imaginable.

    Go away and back for one more day and I’ll be twice as productive!
