How to React to a Friend's Good News

I am starting a mailing-list to keep people updated on my future projects. I'm also playing with a few ideas for some possible humorous content to send to subscribers, but I have no concrete plans on that score just yet. Anyhoo, if you'd like to sign up for said mailing list, please use the form below. Of course, you can opt out at any time.

Subscribe to be apprised of all my various doings:

I'd prefer an RSS feed.

+1 on the rss feed.

August 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDale

The Peter Principle in action.

Oh, why not? Subscribed. At least, that way I'll be one of the first in line for the "Basic Instructions: Quod Licet Iovi Non Licet Omnibus" Edition...

Ray, if you want to be kept informed, then apply. If you don't, it doesn't mean you get an RSS feed.

If enough signers want it, and it is possible to do without Scott buying in to something he doesn't otherwise want or need, then it's likely you'll get it.

Humerous? Oh well, I suppose it's an 'armless mistake.

Please can you set up a system where I can be notified of when the copyright year on comics would have changed for future years.

I've been working on the new Meyerian calendar that is going to be based on this epoch.

Something good happened to Rick.

Well, if the world is ending ANYWAY...

August 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterZ2

It's spelled "humerus" - sheesh.

Note from Scott: How can I even consider quitting this?

August 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMoon

"Humerous" content? So you'll be sending out arm bones?

August 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGraham

Just humerous content? What about the tibia?

August 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterPedant

+1 for RSS. Will you be providing updates in the comments of your reposted BI archive?

August 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGraham

I think this is the meanest I've ever seen Scott be toward Rick. Those are some humorously harsh words.

August 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBAH!

Ray, I'd prefer a hefty trust fund and an ongoing intimate acquaintance with miss Kat Dennings. Alas, I am familiar with the fact that the universe has a tendency to revolve around this collective thing called Not Me.

So lately I've been seeing in my imagination, these strips rendered as videos. The big headline is reversed on black. It fades to the first of the sub-heads. These are each rendered like the "intertitle" dialog panels in silent movies, with nice little typographical swooshes around them (example)

The intertitle transitions to the dialog with a wipe. We see the two actors, looking like and positioned the same as in your panel, in black and white. The actors say the lines, and we wipe to the next subhead.

Production time & costs would be really minimal (as videos go), and they should really draw a lot of views on ya tube. Recycling your material in a different form, yeah!

"Note from Scott: How can I even consider quitting this?"

Ever-e day, Scott. Ever-e day... :-)

August 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterWow

Tried to sign up for the mailing list with no apparent results.

Note from Scott: if that happens, just email me and tell me the address you want to use. I'll happily sign you up manually.

Just thinking. If you were to release a "Best of" Selection in book form (as selected by your viewers), maybe you could make it the top 101, and put a picture of a dalmation on the front.

Call it

A 101 Dull Animations.
