There's this one movie theater in Willowbrook (up in North Houston) that I hate, hate, HATE going to; it's always crowded, it's smelly, and it's almost a guarantee that a baby will cry. But I always go there just to witness everyone clap in unison when the movie ends. It's insane! Imagine: a bunch of people clapping at a projector screen! It totally threw me off the first time I witnessed it, and I assumed that it's just an aberration. But no, it happens EVERYTIME. I highly recommend you check out this feat of mass hysteria yourself; it's like church but not as religion-y.
Attribution: tons of thanks to all the cool people at flickr -- you guys always make my comic hella less drab! This time, the background pics for panels 2, 3 and 4 were taken by Maggiejumps
, J Blaine
and Jesus Presley
, respectively. I really liked Jesus Presley's shot
; I make special mention of it (normally I don't) because the way I do the comic is: I first draw the comic and then start searching for pictures to match it. So, finding a perfect shot is almost always a freak accident. ANYWAY, thanks again! Also, I've recently completed collecting most (if not all) of Minus the Bear
's albums, so I figured it's high time that I
showcase their shirt designs in the comic. Lastly, the screen shot in panel 1 was the last image ever hosted on thegia.com. Someone please bring that website back to life
