Off To America!

On Saturday morning, November 5, I will be leaving for the United States. And possibly Canada. I know what those of you with sharp memories who follow this blog are thinking – what's this guy playing at? When 2011 began he was in Sydney, in April he was on the Gold Coast, in July he was in Hong Kong and now he's going to the USA! Is he made of money or what?

Don't think I'm some cashed-up jetsetter, reader. Far from it. But the opportunity came up to go to the USA for 11 weeks. Would you turn it down? Didn't think so. In fact, by the time 2011 is over I'll have spent 88 of its days outside of Melbourne, which isn't bad going at all. 2011 has been a great year, even though my creative output has decreased a fair bit.

Ah well, can't complain. I'll still be able to post things here, so don't ditch this blog for 11 weeks. Really. There'll still be stuff to look at. I promise. And there will be plenty to read as well, as once again I experience the heady thrill of encountering a new country for the first time! Join me as I report from the other side of the world.

Finally, the truth about how the internet was created is revealed! This isn't somethin' they teach you in your little history books, kid*.

* This statement is from the lady who runs the Watchhouse (women's cell) tour at the Old Melbourne Gaol. She's quite a character.

So funny, I forgot to laugh.

Hmmm, not too much to say about this one. Hope you like the new layout for the blog though. It probably more resembles my actual desktop. Also, it doesn't 'tile', so it might not look good if your computer screen is really big. It looks fine on mine.

We've made it to number 30! When you read this, try to pretend it's nearly the end of 2009. It'll make more sense that way. Don't pretend for too long though or you may start to feel depressed. It's not the '00s no more, let's be thankful for that.

Hang in there, little Nonesuch readers. Only ten more of these little suckers to go before I finally catch up to the current timeline. Then the real fun begins!

Yes, the story in this strip is true – it took place on October 13, 2007 at the Armageddon Multimedia Expo at the Melbourne Convention Centre. An awesome day, because I got to meet the great voice actor Billy West. Never heard of him? Shame on you. Go watch some cartoons. In particular, The Ren And Stimpy Show, where he voiced both Ren and Stimpy (at first only Stimpy), and also Futurama, where he is the voice of Fry, the Professor, Zoidberg and Zapp Brannigan.

Here's a fun bit of trivia for you: the 'denim metal dude' I was standing behind in the queue to meet Billy is the exact same person I was standing behind in the queue to get into Manifest (Melbourne Anime Festival) at Melbourne Uni in 2006. Believe it or not, this is actually true!
