    It's Friday, it's FREAKANGELS. I know right? Chrimboe'en, and there's a comic anyway. Fucking holiday miracle, is what.

    G'morning, Whitechapel. Probably gonna be a bit quiet today -- some of you are probably gearing up or have already set out for the worst hell imaginable. A couple of you may actually be having the most wonderful time of the year, but we know that's not the rule. At any rate, there's a few of us still around -- say hi, rant and rave a bit, giggle about how Aunt Agnes smells like fucking egg nog all the damned time... Whatever you're up to, all of us hope all of you are surviving.

    A nice Xmas episode. I half thought KK would be throwing presents down to the huddled massed by the end. It's good to see her back on her chopper.

    I've finished my Xmas shopping, just got the last of the booze in, and 3 mouse traps (2 regular, one 4 berth humane, it's their choice). Now just hoping my boss will ring to tell us to go home early, hopefully not while I'm skiving off in the pub.

    an all optimistic episode. KK is airborne again to joy of almost anyone and she realizes what the upgrade is capable of, recognizes the fact that this opens up possibilities.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    I am setting unemployment aside for the next few days. Time to drink, watch lots of movies and save the crying in the shower for after the new year.

    Hope everyone else is just wonderful.

    A fun episode with a happy KK! All the better as I wasn't expecting a new episode today =D

    I'm in the same position as keyofsilence at the minute, I've been out of my job for a week and am looking for something new as there's no way I'm going to sit around and 'support' my family on the pittance that passes for benefits now. Still, it's a new year and all that - Merry Christmas/Late Yule/Saturnalia people. Hope you get better soon Warren!

    Have fun all! =)

    Hi Ariana,

    I'm surviving, just.

    Would like to post my appreciation for yourself, Warren and Paul and to all the Whitechapellers who have enhanced my life over the last couple of years.

    Hope we all defeat the odds and have a superb Xmas.

    Look at this!!! An episode for Christmas!! I want some of KK's buzz. Meantime, I'll settle for posting pics of old Santa burning to the ground, compliments of some brave-eyed optimist in Russia. "Happy holidays to all, if you observe them."

    Ahh, those panels of the people waving up at KK can't fail to warm yer cockles. Hope the next few days treat you all well, however you are spending them. Cheers!

    Looks like KK's built an autogyro this time. Some special Freak Angel improvements too. And with her "30's aviator" garb it looks great!!

    Kudos to all for the design and execution of the work...

    Happy Holidays to All!

    This is the third time Luke's mentioned something wrong with his balls, isn't it? What the heck is going on? Bet it'll be good (for us, not him)!

    Happy Christmas!

    I suspect Luke's being silently castrated, while all this is going on. Which is why no one cares that his balls are burning.

    The flipside, he's got gonorrhoea, I don't particularly need to see :-)

    Happy holidays

    Happy post-solstice, one and all!

    Freakangels never leaves me blank-faced, but rarely has an episode made me smile quite this much. Excellent work, everyone.

    Happy ~end of year celebrations, everybody. Good episode, now offta parley with the family, eat meat and drink copious amounts of alcohol. May you all get the next two days of your choosing.

    For X-mas Eve we got another half foot or so of MORE snow here. The sky keeps trying to kill us all, but we do not learn the lesson, sadly... But we're having ourselves a nice holiday, and plan on spending it enjoying it with friends and each other as much as possible. Mostly because the world outside is simply too fucked to be bothered with.

    So I was more or less on the mark with KK, then. That's gratifying, I suppose, but what else made sense?

    And Luke is STILL on about his balls...
    • CommentTimeDec 24th 2010
    Sweet! I suspect Miki did something appropriate to Luke. I still hate the character but I suspect he's hobbled.

    I'm happy we've an airborne KK again. Goody goody!

    Also did not expect an episode today. It's a Whitechapel Christmas Miracle!

    I've just arrived at work, I'm here all night. Will be the same tomorrow.

    On the upside, received a package of presents from my family back home, and got a spiffy navy pea coat, fits perfectly, and the weather here in Houston is just slightly chill enough to warrant wearing it. Once I get a day off, I think I will be taking my lady out for a nice evening with sushi. Then I have to scramble and get her a present for her birthday in a week and a half. Think dammit!

    "Castration"? "Gonorrhea"? It could be a simple case of blue balls. That raises questions about the nature of Luke's upgrade.

    Yay! I'm guessing this should have been the skip week that ended up happening by surprise two weeks ago. But what the hell, happy Freakday and six pages of lovely to contemplate while I'm out wrestling other aunties and big sisters for the last loaf of French bread and brie. (The moms make the central dish, we bring the extras that are impractical to buy any earlier.)

    I really liked the smoke out of the copter. Spectral. Pretty. And sooo excited for whatever KK & Caz come up with next. They're my favorite science/engineer team other than the one in my head (long story...that I'm writing).

    Merry Christmas, happy weekend, terrific gift giving & getting and safe and bright end of the year to all!

    Actually, Zatoichi, the craft KK built is a coaxial-rotor helicopter. The counter-rotating blades cancel out the engine torque that normal helicopters use a tail rotor for. Some examples of this design are the Kamov Ka-32 transport, Ka-50 and 52 attack helicopters in the Russian military. Also the US company Sikorsky has the S-69 and X2 designs in development.
