Rants Section!
Yes, these are my rants.  :)  I won't rant too often, I promise.
The last thing ANYONE needs is one more angsty webcomic, right?  ;)

August 15th
Photoshop, Photoshop... Why have you forsaken me?
Does anyone out there know of a good alternate program for creating and
editing a webcomic?  Preferably something that won't cost me $300?!
As you can see, sporadic updates are the theme for the summer.... With any luck,
I'll be up and running next week.  I have Poser installed, so there will probably be more 3-D
work on here...
In the meantime, today's comic is entitled "One of those days", for obvious reasons.
No, I have never been cemented to the bottom of the ocean.... but I've had
PLENTY of days where that would be a massive improvement. 

Again, sorry for the delay.  I was working yesterday on helping a friend
whose apartment complex got a stick up their proverbial ass.  Will update more
this week, at the end of the week most likely.  :)


July 23rd
Well, the summer semester is almost over, and I still have some of
my brain cells left!  Yay!  I'd have to say that is a complete

I'll be starting a new project soon, but with my health the way it is,
I'm not sure how active it's going to be.  I am hoping to get the new
arc up this next month, since I'm starting to get sick of my own filler. :)


July 1st
Well, it's been a while... and I guess I have some explaining to do
regarding today's comic.  I have been avoiding the ER for the last couple of weeks,
and the pain finally caught up with me.  For those who don't know, I have been
struggling with a cystic problem in my ovaries for a few years now, and it
became too much for me to handle. 

I'm sorry there isn't more of a comic up, but this is what I had to work with
before Jerry made me go back to bed.  :)  I should be able to update RC
more often during the course of this month (since this threw off my school schedule)
and hopefully have everything back up to the normal schedule by August.  :)

So, I've been spending the last week working on my books (read: MORE THAN ONE),
and I've found something in the process.  I am WAY too ADD for this. 
Sadly, it means that I have been putting planning for school on hold (nothing works better to
distract than three different book projects, right?), and so now I am frantically searching
for the information for my classes this summer.  Yay.

To those of you that have stuck with me through this, I thank you.
Your emails have meant so much to me, and I really AM working on replying to you!
As it stands now, I have 120 new emails to read, but I'm getting there.  :D 
Keep the support coming, it's what keeps this site up!  (Lord knows it's not my comic.)
I promise I'll be getting some REAL strips up soon, with REAL artwork.  Hopefully when
I get settled into the routine of school again, I'll have a chance to get the story-lines going.

UGH!  Trying to get back into school is a disaster!!! 
Kids, if you ever think that getting out of college is fine, you'll just "go back later",
don't kid yourselves!!!  It never happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wasn't really all that impressed. I know, I know... It's the X-Men, it totally rules... but this wasn't all that great of a film. Oh sure, it had its moments (Kelsey Grammar as Hank McCoy was BEAUTIFUL casting), but it lacked any real character or story development. Yes, I understand it was supposed to be an action-packed, climactic finale, but it just didn't do it for me.

The film relied too heavily on shock-value, in my opinion, and not enough on the tried and true story that has survived for decades. Yes, it grabbed you by the shorthairs at times, but more often than that, it was a snooze-fest that didn't seem to really capture much of the audience.

Prof. Charles Xavier is taking a last stand. Magneto is taking a last stand. The President of the United States is taking a last stand. Yes, yes. We get it. They're all taking a last stand. You know, the title explains that, and I didn't have to pay $20 for my husband and I to READ the title.

The film's saving grace is Jean (or, at this point, Phoenix). If you are familiar with her story, you will be impressed with the special effects surrounding her appearance. If not... well, the flames are still really cool. As I am sure many of you know, I am something of an effect-freak. If a film has good special effects (and they use them properly), it can be salvaged from even the worst plots. This happens to be no exception.

I am sure that many people are impressed with the story, and I do have to say... in its own rights, it was fairly good. Just not what I would expect from the X-Men legacy.

I give this movie a 3 out of 6. It was average. Not bad, but not nearly as impressive as I expected it to be.

Wow... Yeah.  Sorry about last week, folks. It would appear that, just because one knows much about HTML and JAVA does not make them an expert at uploading comics.  :)  For those of you who DON'T know what happened, here's the short answer: I deleted something I shouldn't have.  The long answer goes into far more detail about the back-end programming here at ComicGenesis than I'd really like to divulge.  :)  I'm sure you understand.

On a lighter note, I'm up at 1:30 in the morning, trying to explain to a bunch of strangers why my webcomic wasn't updated last week.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you are looking at a new level of pathetic.  I've been up almost consistently since last Saturday researching a possible surgical procedure, and unfortunately my brain is a little fried...  Nothing like reading the mortality rate of
your own future surgery to help you sleep at night.  Who needs warm milk when you've got BLIND TERROR?!  So, if I seem a bit cynical, or cranky, just remember...  If Jen doesn't get her required hours of sleep, someone had better supplement them with coffee and cloves.
