    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.

    Oh shit! Tharr be pirates!
    Also, I just noticed the FA tat for the first time, which makes me wish I were in Chicago getting one.
    Alas, I am not: I read from Eugene, Oregon. Moving back to Canada in a few days though, reading from Calgary AB next Friday.

    Don't worry! It will take the sail boat all week to tack down that side-street, judging by the wind direction and the buildings.

    Reading from Northeast of some non-fictional flooding in Indiana. Another great episode, and now we finally have a hint of what the Big Bad is. Excellent.

    Reading from Chicago in a cloud of retail. I'd rather be at the con but we have a cd changer full of Einst├╝rzende Neubauten as a declaration of protest.

    I demand the pirates have tinfoil hats! I'm a touch worried for Jack.

    @ Tacopunch:

    Einst├╝rzende Neubauten

    Excellent. Fifty points for you.

    From a room with only a table and a computer. Damned modernists.

    re-reading from work2 after squealing in delight while reading from work1: "no, Jack, don't put down the gun! don't you know that spells trouble later?" and "oooo, pretty bike shot" and "they are the cool kids - the ones who actually pay attention when they take apart radios. le sigh."

    Lincoln, NE is drying out after our daily dose of storm and schizophrenic weather. I am sending chaotic vibes to Chicago for fun and safe hands.

    Good Day, Whitechapel!

    "Say hello, KK."
    "Eat shit and die."
    "Was that directed to you or me?"


    Another enjoyable installment. I wish it was next Friday already.

    "You never seen a bike before?"

    Ok, now this one line has interested me - there is a reason why we don't have steampowered helicopters in real life, basically it'd be too heavy to fly. I was just going on the vibe for the episodes so far, that whole 'comic book logic' thing - now I'm not so sure. I'm beginning to think that the helicopter only exists and works because of the presence of the Freakangels.

    Either that or at some point we invented a super small power plant for heating water, but I think the Freakangels 'power' is Occam's razor in this case.

    @Reynolds--You saw this, right? There's some debate over whether or not it's a fake, but it seems at least possible in our current technological world, so it's entirely possible that it has nothing to do with KK's powers. I think we'll need to see more of the technology at work to really know for sure.

    Reading from work. It's been a rough week, so I'm surprised that I have enough downtime to check out this week's installment.

    Sounds like everybody is having a grand ol' tyme.

    @buzzorhowl. For some reason the video won't play on my machine. But it's not a *steam-powered* machine is it?

    I'm back in CA - which means I'm no longer in Italy. And my brain is complete mush right now due to the fact that it's after 3:00 pm and I haven't taken a 5 or so hour nap.

    Reading from home (Los Angeles) after work. I'm usually too rushed in the morning, and I like to savor the read.

    @Reynolds--Ah, you got me, it's gas-powered.
    • CommentTimeJun 27th 2008
    Come now! You've left us with the same cliffhanger when we first met Jack! Let's hear Alice make her first discovery against that boat!

    I just got a new harddrive for my busted computer this morning, and reading FA is the first thing I've done with it online :)

    Somehow FA made me ultra aware of flooding in London; Warren & Paul have sucesfully planted a meme.
