I just had curry for lunch so this seemed appropriate. This is the mozzarella cheese curry Andrew had in the curry-shop behind the comic book store (Nakano Shoten) in Jimbocho. Japanese curry and cheese–two great tastes that go great together! Not shown: boiled new potatoes, also delicious.
I forgot to post the MURDER CAN BE FUN strips until right now (sorry!) cuz I was out all day on Sunday, my normal “do your internet work” day. And then yesterday was an amazing, productive meeting with The Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa (Gatineau, actually) who I’m doing some consulting work for, and getting ready all of the stuff for our Natsume Ono announcement today (awesome) and then I went for ramen, had a few beers with friends, and fell asleep for 14 hours (ugh).
What I’m trying to say is, things are busy and good, and I’m apparently not as sick of talking about myself as I thought I was… :-/
For balance, here are some cool things that people I know are doing:
ITEM! A bunch of my friends were nominated for Shuster Awards, which recognize excellent Canadian contributions to the medium of comics. I personally know 95% of the nominees, so I will refrain from congratulating them individually. Instead: Congrats to all of you! Full nominees list at http://joeshusterawards.com/.
ITEM! The lovely Erika Moen and the cubby Jeff Parker have launched a new webcomic venture: Bucko. Verdict: First three pages are awesome. http://www.buckocomic.com/
ITEM! Heidi MacDonald is celebrating a year of independent blogging at The Beat today. Congratulations, Heidi! http://comicsbeat.com/
ITEM! UDON is doing an open-call for Mega Man Fan Art, for their new Mega Man Tribute art book. It’s a contest that I’d enter myself, if I had time to sit down and draw something, so I feel like all y’all should go enter it too. Seriously, it’s hype. Head over to http://www.megamantribute.com/ to see the rules and details. Contest closes February 4th at 1pm!
An email in my inbox this morning has alerted me to the fact that the quizzical “Cheese Kit-Kat” is now in stock andavailable for sale at AsianFoodGrocer.com. While I can’t recommend this concoction for the taste–it’s a curious mix of gouda, white cheddar, and white chocolate–it is something to be experienced, and those 10 pieces that come in the box will quite happily satisfy the curiosity of you and 8 friends (you’ll want to try it twice, just cuz).
Check it out at http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/product/japanese-ki-kat-white-chocolate-cheese. They’ve also got the really good “Adult Dark Chocolate” flavour in stock as well.
