    This must be the first time Arkady says something that sounds normalwhen telling Miki off. I like that. Arkady's always been mg favourite, and now that she displayed a quiet pissed off moment, I like her even better.

    Not to beat a dead horse but ...

    ... the reason I loved the Quincy bit so much was that it shows how people deal with things. A great character moment and an insight into how ALL of us are, not just Kait. A half-remembered show from childhood becomes precious when you know you'll never see it (or any other television, unless Caz and KK really get their asses in gear) ever again.

    Plus, those shows in the Seventies and Eighties, while horrible and formulaic, were some weird-ass shit. Raymond Burr as Ironside? Timothy Hutton (Senior!) and Burgess Meredith (!) in Ellery Queen? Joe Don Baker in anything?

    ... I watched a lot of tv in the Seventies and Eighties. I'll be quiet now. Warren owns several pairs of gloves, no doubt.

    Am I the only one who thinks it looks like Miki has a mustache in some frames?

    I think it's just the way she's drawn but it always catches my eye.

    Still an awesome issue.

    Kait has now become my favourite character, just because she has the hots for some old dude with a stoop who palys around with dead bodies. Just because he might have a foot long cock.

    @thenewscum I see 'taches everywhere...

    (my body will be found in a river, impaled by microns and wacom pens, with a 'stache upon my face in sharpie come dusk, I expect)

    @Roo

    It was nice knowing you. Also, Arkady in the second panel is... glorious.

    @ Roo - And you realize it'll be Paul that kills you, not Warren. He'll just point and laugh.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    You can't hurt someone with a Wacom pen. The plastic tip is so blunt and ineffectual; God-knows I've tried. Just use a swiss-army knife or a katana, like the rest of us.

    I dunno, theres a certain art form when using blunt objects for maiming and killing.

    I don't know if Paul or Warren have a handy katana.....

    They're more likely to gouge out your eyes with a bottle-opener.

    Let it be known that I started reading FreakAngels at about two in the afternoon today, and it is about two in the morning the next day, but damn it, I am all caught up and totally hooked! I would have finished sooner but I had to, y'know... eat and help wax my girlfriend's grandparent's boat and whatnot. But yeah, totally caught up now! In retrospect, I should have paced myself so that I would finish Thursday and wake up to fresh FreakAngels Friday morning, but this way I get to chat with friends now and speculate about the up-coming episode, hoolay!

    Actually I'm fairly certain Paul has an Iaido for training. The sad news is they aren't sharp. It will hurt a long long time.

    XD XD XD I'm not going to hurt anyone, that's hilarious.
    I guess the miki moustache thing comes from the big upper lip + the way I shade lips (with the top lip always in shadow).

    Um ... I'm currently watching the GREATEST EPISODE OF QUINCY EVER. It's Quincy versus drug humour - ROGER MILLER* plays a Richard Pryor-esque musician/comedian who talks about getting high all the time. Quincy, in the audience, doesn't like all the drug jokes. Roger Miller explodes in a freebasing accident and Quincy (naturally) saves him. Quincy rants about tv commercials, tries to get Roger Miller's tv special off the air, meets the girl who (thinks she) CAUSED the freebasing accident, she loves him ...

    Quincy's boat and girlfriend make prominent appearances.

    "What this society needs is a new religion ... something to give us hope." sez the girlfriend.
    Quincy gets frisky and proposes to her.

    More after these messages...

    ... the girl (who THOUGHT she caused the freebasing accident) OD's, Quincy confronts Roger Miller, Roger Miller meets with the girl, (who pulled a Jimi Hendrix, apparently), has a heart to heart with her. Awesome speech. AWESOME.

    Quincy wants to elope, but now he's hooked into a big elaborate wedding.

    *ROGER MILLER is indeed the man who was King Of The Road.

    Haven't checked to see if this is on Youtube but by God, it should be!

    I bet Miki loved this episode. And the "lethal marijuana" one.

    Speaking of which ... is there pot in FreakAngel-land Whitechapel? Kirk can grow strawberries, normal humans grow enough stuff for bread, surely there's a few plants around ...
