Things have been kinda slow at work lately. So slow that I can actually post on the blog from work! Well, it's also because the boss isn't here today.
Since we have a lot less material to get done, I've been trying my best to decrease my working rate. And let me tell you, it ain't easy!
With the boss constantly looking over my shoulder, I've started reading this webcomic called Least I Could Do. Since I've already read through the entire Sluggy, Rob and Elliot, Shortpacked and Afterstrife archives, I decided to focus on this new daily webcomic that I've found. Plus, I can't access Gmail or Facebook here, so there's pretty much nothing to do on the internets here.
LICD is a webcomic about a guy who likes to get laid a lot, disregard women and constantly degrade his friends. By now I've read through the whole things from 2003 to 2008, and I can't really explain why. It's not even that funny. The plotlines are semi-interesting and the art is pretty good (at least by current artist Lar Desouza. The guy before him drew all the characters exactly the same). I donno, there's something about this guy, Rayne Summers that... er... I donno, I just love this guy! He's rude, obnoxious, practically oblivious (except for times when his creator suddenly wishes otherwise), and nothing seems to really bother him, not even getting a full cavaty search by airport security.
Up until this point, I can't really tell if Rayne's extreme chauvinist behavior is condemed or condoned by his alter ego, creator Ryan Sohmer. Rayne seems to be able to get away with anything, and even gets Keira Knightley to itsawondefullife him and show him that his life choices are just fine and it's all going to turn out right in the future. Oh, and then she gets naked.
Since Sohmer obviously based the character on himself, one question comes to mind: Is he really such a ladykiller, or does the webcomic express his deepest desires? Since this comic is updated daily, I'd have to put my money on the latter.
You have to give it to this guy: this webcomic does in fact update daily, except for Sundays. As far as I've noticed, he hasn't missed a deadline yet. Then again, that probably has an affect on the quality of humor. Although there were some pretty clever strips that made me laugh very hard (on the inside), most punchlines are mundane, or simply nonexistent.
Anyway, since I finished reading the entire thing, now I need something else to help me sabotage my work efficiency. Any suggestions?
