Cartoon Momentum and Explanation?

Here's a blog post about blogging! Exciting isn't it?

I am truly working on building momentum in my cartoon posts here. The boring part for you is, I'm looking to fine-tune my story telling and layout skills. The fun part for you "dear-gentle reader" is, I'm looking to fine-tune my story telling and layout skills.

My goal is to be entertaining.

With my sporadic posting in the past though, as well as (happy to say it) new readers, I know that some of my running gags are lost on some folks. This is kind of an age old issue with sequential and periodical features that I'm also trying to explore. I mean at some point, the audience just knew that Superman didn't like Kryptonite. At some point, people stopped wondering "why" Snoopy was sleeping on top of his doghouse and just accepted it.

One advantages that this new medium has, is extemporaeneous information can easily be linked. Space is not an issue. For people wanting to explore they need only click the mouse, for those looking for a quick chuckle, they can buzz right by.

I will soon be posting "stand-alone" pages to the right, of some of the tenants of Jeffy's little world. The characters, the settings and who-knows-what-all.

Until I get that worked out though, for those that didn't understand yesterday, why Jeffy and Mike have "bunk couches", here's a blast from the past.

Enjoy!

The prodigal roommate. It's all there but the fatted calf.

...and for those wondering why Jeffy and Mike's swingin' bachelor pad is called "The Steamy Grotto"? Because "The House of Whacks" was too spot on.


Talk to you soon.

Excellent! I've considered bunk-desks and a bunk-washer/dryer in the past. Bunk-couches and tvs are awesome!

There's not much of an issue against bunk-TV's, but with bunk-couches you just have to make sure the one with IBS has the lower bunk!

I draw the line @ SIX TV sets stacked up or in a row ! It's all my short attention can span.

I think 6 was right about where Elvis liked it. Of course he always kept spares to replace any he shot.
