As a man with a couple of tattoos I would like to ask you for your opinion about meanings behind tattoos. Do tattoos always should have a deep meaning or they can be made just because you wanted or it looked cool?
I think too much emphasis gets put on the idea that tattoos have to have some DEEP PERSONAL SIGNIFICANCE. I mean, yeah, it’s great if they do! But if you just really like how something looks I don’t think it’s automatically a terrible idea to get it tattooed. At the very least, it will be a reminder of where you were at that point in your life.
That being said, I have a “reason” for all of my tattoos. But that’s just me, YMMV!
Are you ever going to post your tattoos online?
No, because last time I did that people stole the designs.
A lot of webcomic artists, notably Ryan North, KC Green and Joey Comeau have been getting into the business of comic writing recently. Have you gotten any offers to write for a licensed comic, and would you if the opportunity came up?
If somebody made me an offer I would certainly consider it. I’m not sure I’d have the time to give it the proper amount of attention, though. And I have no idea how I would write for an established property, that seems absolutely alien to me.
Yesterday for some reason I started imagining what would happen if Emily read The Game (out of intellectual interest) and then found herself being hit on by a PUA. Probably something like “Oh my gosh! You’re one of those ‘pickup artists’, right? And that was a ‘neg’? I have read about this! You guys, come here! This guy is ‘running game’ on me!” and then giggled to myself for about 10 minutes.
PUAs are fucking scum
Does Marten buy new “Teh” shirts every once in a while? Or has he had the same one for 10+ years? If he buys new ones, does he buy them from the QC store? DOES QC EXIST IN THE QC UNIVERSE???
20 minutes has passed in the entirety of QC, tops
What do you think of Boards of Canada?
Did you ever worry about having tattoos that were exposed constantly eg: hands, lower arms etc? I’m thinking about my first tattoo but I’m having trouble coming to terms with the ‘society won’t put you in a good job with tattoos’ (thanks mum) and the ‘well it’s my body get over it’… Did you ever have that thought or am I being massively paranoid and overthinking it?
how many songs/albums/artists would you estimate you have in your music library?
8863 songs, 31 days of music, 86gb.
Is the poofy-haired woman walking with Joyce Daisy from John Allison’s Giant Days?
Yes, I love her character design.
