Go buy the Octopus Pie book!

Seriously, right now. Do it. Buy this book.

Octopus Pie is my favourite webcomic right now and I read a lot of webcomics.

It's about $14 U.S., including shipping. You can get it signed too!

My interview with Meredith remains the most popular interview on this site for good reason. Mer is super nice and super talented. Go support her stuff so she can keep doing the comic.

And if you're not familiar, get familiar! Start with the first strip and work from there.

For the next 2 weeks or so, I'm going to be going into hiding to do school work and not writing at all. You can keep with me on Twitter in the meantime. Stay posted, I have a couple big things under wraps.

Oh, you can read this too: my review of Stop Smiling Magazine's 2nd annual interview issue for The Magazineer. Go drop a comment if you feel so inclined.

Nestography-A Videogame Based Version of "A Softer World"

This is absolutely brilliant. This fellow writes this little captions under screenshots of NES games. Very reminiscent of "A Softer World". Sometimes funny, sometimes sad.

Unfortunately Blogger won't let me embed .png images but here's a link to my favourite one.

Here's the author's explanation:

It's hard to tell whether you play video games because you have no friends, can't get the opposite sex to notice you, have trouble sustaining a relationship, don't want to keep a steady job or whether, in fact, maybe those things are a result of said addiction.

The problem with video games is that most of them are trying very hard to engage you without making you feel anything, like a one-night-stand with someone that sort of likes you but not quite enough, or a Jerry Bruckheimer movie. The problem with me and video games is that I want them to love me as much as I love them and they can't, so I have to fill in the blanks myself.

Look at the whole gallery here.
