Quote of the Day

"Personal Foul. 69, offense. He was givin' him the business. Replay the down."

-- ACC ref Ron Cherry's explanation for a penalty called during the November 24, 2007 football game between Maryland and North Carolina State


Movin' on Up
Those of you who have been checking in over the past month have no doubt noticed a severe lack of new comics and a fairly comprehensive site overhaul. I made a personal commitment to take OFF CAMPUS as far as it can go in early November, and a slicker site design was the first step in that journey. Step 2 kicks off on December 31st, 2007, when the strip moves to its new URL, The annual Seno Awards will also be posted on that day, with new comic strips to start sometime in mid-January. I’d start posting earlier, but I’m also moving house literally over the next month (Mike the Room Troll has decided to put the now infamous Man House up for sale), and that’s bound to cause delays. The time I do have between now and then will be used to build up some lead comics so I can get this thing on a regular schedule; I’m fairly confident I can do two a week, but I’d really like to produce three a week. We shall see what happens, but after five weeks of working my tail off on OFF CAMPUS, I’m still pumped for 2008, and that’s always a good thing.

This post will be the final update at this URL, although I plan to keep this page up until late January so casual readers know where to locate the new site. Again, I’ll see you there in ’08.

A Week to be Thankful for
It’s been awhile since I’ve had so much stuff I wanted to share here, and I’ve finally found some time to write about one of the most fun weeks ever. So with no further ado . . .

Wizard World Texas 2007 was an absolute triumph, even though I missed the first day to due a last minute schedule conflict that couldn’t be avoided. If the rumors that I’m hearing about this being the final show in the North Texas area that Wizard will be sponsoring are indeed true, at least it went out with a bang. For certain, attendance was noticeably down from previous years, with fewer exhibitors hawking stuff, and it seemed that most attendees had very little cash to spend (I dropped right around $200 over the weekend and felt like a Vegas high roller). However, as I stated earlier,the Artists Alley line-up was very strong this year, and there were a number of artists that I didn’t get to hit that I would have loved to see. Highlights from Saturday included a webcomics panel by DrunkDuck that was actually pretty helpful, as well as a random conversation that included topics such as table-top role playing games and the merits of different Central Texas stripclubs that I had with a cop from Midland, TX while standing in line for Marc Silvestri. I also picked up a couple of fantastic commissioned sketches from a couple of talented unknowns and discovered that my all-time favorite artist, J. Scott Campbell, would be taking commissions the next day as well.

Well, I showed up forty-five minutes prior to show opening on Sunday morning to make sure I got on his list . . . and wound up missing out by a couple of people. No words exist in the English language, or any other language for that matter, to adequately describe how disappointed I was by this turn of events, but the phrase “flaming taint punch” comes close. Despondent, I wandered over to Humberto Ramos’ sketch line, where I shared the bad news with another sketch-whore I met earlier in the morning. As Fate would have it, one of the VIP guests (i.e., they paid more for their tickets and thus got to get in line earlier) who had beaten me to the sketch so to speak was standing right in front of me, and offered to sell his spot to me, so he could buy a better Ramos piece.

I’m so glad he suggested cash, because there’s really no telling how far I would have gone to get on that list.

So, transaction complete, I walked away with a spot in the Campbell queue, a great Ramos sketch, AND a copy of his very bitchin’ sketchbook, Toxic Waste. I spent the rest of the afternoon waiting my turn in Campbell’s line, just watching him work, all the while pretending to be someone named “Frank.” Right around 4 PM on Sunday afternoon, I left Wizard World Texas, possibly for the last time, with this sketch:

Now I can die in peace.

But the week of awesome was just getting started, for Handsome Wahb and I hit the trail, Harold-and-Kumar style, the following Tuesday morning. The object of our quest: Rock Band. Despite a stock mishap that led to a slight purchasing delay, the Wyld Stallyons were born on 11 AM that morning and I reached a plateau of pleasure previously reserved for orgasm only.

Yes, it is that fun, although side-effects include thinking you can sing and the emergence of a deep-rooted hatred for Kirk Hammett.

Newsflash -- Seno is a Cunt
That oh-so-charming blog entry title is the work of one Mike the Room Troll, as is much of the HTML coding responsible for the new and (hopefully) improved look we’re sporting these days. It’s still very much a work in progress, but I think it looks a hell of a lot better than it did just a few days ago. The best part is it only cost me a plate of Plucker’s cheese fries to obtain; before you judge me too harshly, keep in mind that said price is probably on par with the wages paid out by Wal-Mart for stitch work done by Nepalese orphans.

The total apathy towards my previous post dictates that I attend WizardWorld as a fan this year, which is fine by me, as I really want to do the meet-and-greet thing with a number of the scheduled guests. 2008, though, is going to be a working tour, one I’m already prepping for.

I feel like I’m leaving out a whole mess of shit that’s gone down over the last two weeks, but I wouldn’t even know where to start blogging. Suffice it to say, it was good to see Obi-Juan, Velasquez, DrewDog, and Angry Bees during their respective visits into town, and Guitar Hero III is the greatest goddamn piece of interactive entertainment since the lap dance.
