    It's Friday, and we're back with more FREAKANGELS.

    (Since we're getting so close to the end, here's the link to the previous episode if you wanna build up momentum.)

    How're we all doing doing today?

    Agree with Beamish. The art on FreakAngels has always been good, but you can really see Paul blossom throughout this series 'till we're at the point now where it's like, "Holy F*#^ing Shit that Paul Duffield is five major kinds of awesome". Oh, yeah, Warren's writing's not bad either . . . ;-)

    In any event, things are good here on U.S.'s right hand coast. We've actually had an entire week w/o rain, though it's been ungodly hot and humid throughout until this morning, when I was greeted at my front door by one of those cool, crystal clear mornings that we never seem to get out here anymore. Supposed to continue through the weekend too so I'm psyched for that. Supposed to take my 6 year old daughter fishing early tomorrow morning, but she's been such a sleepy head lately I wouldn't be half surprised if she shooed me away in the wee hours. If that's the case, and tomorrow morning's anywhere near as glorious as today is, I'll just leave her in Mom's capable hands and go off on my own.

    The bit with Connor and the cider reminds me of the cheap ass beer and malt liquor we used to drink while underage in college. We liked it because it was cheap, came in large bottles, and got us crocked w/o much expense. But, dear God, strike me dead if that stuff ever has to pass through my lips again. Youth is the key ingredient in achieving difficult things. For some, its training to be a world class athlete or scholar or artist, for others (like me) it's developoing the ability to consume large amounts of sub par and highly suspect food and liquor . . .

    How wonderfully bittersweet this is all becoming. Well done Paul. Drowned London to draining London.

    Takinng a day off. Cool week.

    I'm worried about what's next. What is going to happen to the Freakangels? and Alice?

    Pure awesomeness. You've outdone yourself Paul! I'm particularly impressed by the water rushing out of Westminster on page 4.

    It's a long weekend here in the western parts of the far antipodes. Spent much of the week informing our Eastern States clients that we won't be open this Monday, but we will be open the following Monday when they have a long weekend. You wouldn't think it's that hard to understand, but every year they react like we Sandgropers are witches in need of a good burning.

    I'm kinda nostalgic now for the only kind of london I would actually want to live in (i.e one where half of it was under the water).

    I think reading Freakangels is giving me synasthesia.

    SWEET.

    Paul, you're awesome!
    Warren, too, of course. And all on Freakangels team. But what Warren meant when in his blog he writes
    (There’s some shots in episodes 138 – 141 that I will have to apologise to him (Paul) for later.)
    What will happen to our favourite angelic freaks?

    Ceegar-riffs, and cider, and wild, wild angels...
    What the fuck *were* we doing as kids?

    The thing to realise about growing up is, if you do it right, you never stop.

    It's just like watching a movie in freeze-frame modus... and a storyline that developes on 2 levels at the same time - physical and mental - which gives an unique multi-vision aspect to this phase. I guess some parts of the outcome are kind of predictable, but some parts are not. It only makes me more curious for the next episode.

    Good Morning,

    Stupendous and touching. Starting to think that the knife-to-the-ribs I've been expecting might not strike. Fireworks, I want fireworks, damn it! (Yes, obviously I have the fucking fireworks and yes they beautiful as supplied by the extraordinary Mister Duffield but I was expecting fireworks of Shakespearean nature, not eye-dazzlers from ILM or someplace.) But I guess I'll quit trying to second-guess this little masterpiece and enjoy the show. Thanks everybody.

    Physically? Fatigued from insufficient sleep and having to shlep boxes around at work.

    Over here, we're getting unseasonal showers and even rain, which I will blame on global warming even if other people won't.

    Holy crap, this installment's draining of Westminster makes me feel like Michael Bay seriously lacks imagination when it comes to spectacle. But then, I'm sure others would have made that pronouncement even before this installment went live.

    Enjoyed this ep a lot, and the art too :)

    This is beautiful, as I expected. Well written, well drawn.

    The sky is light blue, completely cloudless. The temperature is perfect; I am tempted to leave this computer to enjoy the world outside my house.

    This week I got to sit in a staff meeting and listen to my boss and a few colleagues talk shit about a project I spent months on, as if I wasn't in the room. Then I rode the bus home next to a man who smelled like a backed up urinal.

    My wife and I were planning on moving. But the house with the too-good-to-be-true deal? Yeah, that turned out to be a scam. Luckily, we were skeptical and hadn't yet sent any money.

    However, my novel is creeping along nicely and today is the first day all year it actually feels like spring here in Oregon, so there's that.

    A GOOD day today. The company I work for had extra money at the end of their fiscal year, and decided to use it for bonuses for us peons, and we got them today. I figured $100, 200 at the most (if we were lucky). Well I was pleasantly surprised, because it was considerably more than that, so I can splurge on a few things, and catch up on some bills.

    ... and goodbye to Karl's garden.

    And Jack's boat is grounded.

    Any symbolic meaning to those two events?
