Relaxing With Just a Hint of Blogging

Yet another day goes by. I haven’t done much today except read some online comics and listen to music. I played bass for a bit as well, but it didn’t hold my interest for very long. I’ve basically just been relaxing, and it feels great.

To expand a bit on what I just said, I was looking for some more online comics to read, and I found one called “Adventurers!” It sounds like a really cheesy title, and believe me – the title fits the comic. But it’s still pretty good. It had me laughing, not like some comics where they’re just not funny. This one’s about video game characters, and plays on some of the quirky little things that video games do – like how bad guys always carry new weapons that you can pick up after you defeat them, but they never seem to use them on you. Or, of course, there’s also the times where there’s this really impressive attack – and then it does only a tiny bit of damage. Anyways, I’ve never really been a big fan of RPG games, but I still think it’s a pretty funny comic. So I’m working my way through reading it.

Approximately one out of four or five strips is funny, and the rest expand on the big story leading up to the joke. It’s more of a soap opera or a comic book than anything else, but a comic book split up over five or six days.

But enough about horrible comics. There’s just too many out there to talk about all of them. I don’t usually read the comics in the paper too much anymore. I’m more into the online comics now. Right now I have three bookmarked that I check daily. One of these is Dilbert. Dilbert has to be one of the funniest comics out there. It’s got the aspect of sarcasm in there, packaged up in the most odd locations. The situations are usually so subtle and ordinary, and yet the sarcasm added in just makes it hilarious. I can’t describe it much more because of my lack of vocabulary, but let’s just say that sarcasm has…Continue Reading
