    Sort of, thanks.

    Yaaay. I find a dilapidated Sainsbury's Local very oddly satisfying.

    Shit, me too - I dreamed the landlord of my local pub had a caught a disease which was turning him into Predator. Everyone was going on about how tragic it was, seemingly oblivious to the threat that had descended on the neighbourhood...

    I'm really loving the recognisable buildings in a state of semi-destruction. I can feel a Freakangels Pub Crawl coming on.

    And, oh, how I hope something really horrible has happened to 93 Feet East on Brick Lane...

    I'll probably have to read the guy's time theory when I've had coffee in me to make sure I actually get it, but it sounds very interesting.

    Of course, the "I'm going to shit in your dreams" was brilliant. Must put that in my lexicon of swears and threats I have for people.

    Eh, not really. Have you even gone to bed? (wasn't it 4am, your time, when this was uploaded?)

    Loved the episode. The little bits and pieces we are being feed are slowly filling out their world.

    I've got a question on the setup, link wise. First page kicked me to the second page by just clicking on any part of page one (versus the page numbers at the bottom), but the other pages weren't like that. Was this done or purpose? I'm just curious, mind you.

    "I will shit on your dreams!"

    Warren Ellis: satisfaction guaranteed.

    First time through in days. Had an inflammation of the middle ear.

    I had a very intense dream sometime in the last month. I was sitting in a large room with large windows, a mixture between my office room and the first grade classroom. Heavy storm was shaking the whole room. Suddenly the room tilted and I flew against the window which opened and I fell outside. The "screen" went black and I thought "Ok. That's it" and woke up.

    I liked the time thing and the "on top of the memory" method. Let's see what other practical things can be done by telepathy.

    Why only do the first page like that? (it was a nice touch).

    And sorry on the lack of sleep. Warren is such a slave driver. You poor thing.

    Another great installment with entertaining characters.

    My only gripe (and it's my first one of the series) is that last 'page'. It seems an odd, abrupt ending that didn't give us much, nor was it particularly enticing as any sort of cliff-hanger.

    Oh no, I can't blame anyone for my schedule but myself, unfortunately.

    The, haha, mechanics of the Freakangel site were thought through very carefully. It's a tactile thing, or as much as you can do it online without faking it. Episodes are encapsulated six-page things, and every page deserves a full scroll and the reader choosing to move on to the next -- not just hitting anywhere on the page, but consciously clicking the next number in sequence, or flipping back to reread the previous. It's convenient navigation that forces you to slow down just enough to catch things you might have otherwise missed. The main reason the front page of the site is a full link is for new readers -- it makes it harder to miss that it's not just the one page, as an episode/booklet's a bit different from what one might expect.

    Or, hell, I dunno, I've been up a while. Maybe it just seemed like a good idea at the time.

    @Craig - maybe there is more to the last page than meets the eye... worth a bit of Googling to form a few wild theories...

    nice bum.

    i can't wait to find out what the big splash was and how it will affect me and my being late for work. Is it anything like daylight savings time?
    my cat shits on my dreams.

    Shaw: Now that I've read it with normal (i.e. caffenne-rinsed) eyes, I see what you're talking about with the last page. Might work better for the first page of the next installment, but unless I'm missing something, it is kinda abrupt.

    Ariana: Even if it was just a "good idea at the time," you might like to know your explanation does work well. :)

    I think me and myself got into a fight last night; I woke up with a pretty bruise that wasn't there when I went to bed...

    What is the nature of time?

    If there wasn't so much I needed to do in the next week, I'd want to know if there were any chance of compressing time in order to get to next week's episode...Argh! More!

    Also, by strange coincidence, the FreakAngels widget window with the word bubble stating the above quote fits right nicely into the clock and clock parts decor on my MySpace page.

    Sainsbury's Local in a state of decay: great touch. I adore the wit both in the text and the illustrations. As always, I can't wait 'till the next installment!
