Well, I'm glad that's sorted. I'll give up any thoughts of writing anything other than dialogue free pointless fist fights in the style of They Live.

Pandering to artists...that'll be the day...

They Live was awesome. As for pandering to artists... I actually like writers and see them as providing just as vital a role as an artist, hell I can't write so any writers involvement is good in my book. You'll never catch me doing a Todd McFarlane and essentially calling all writers wankers.

There's a reason they don't let artists write stories. Except when they do.

Todd McFarlane...why, Lord, why...?

Wish I could go, but it is in London and I'm not going there.

Very good question Conexus!
But no, in the end we went for a more Western style of printing.


When I say 'more western' I of course mean 'less pretentious'.

I deliberately set the question up so it could be  answered in with self deprecciating punchline, and you didn't take the bait ?

In which case, why don't you pop down to the newsagents and buy some, while I go find a donkey for you to hit your feet at?

Why would Rowdy Roddy Piper want a donkey to hit his feet? He's in the middle of uncovering a sinister alien invasion by shooting as many of them as he can with a shotgun before having an incredibly long and drawn out fight with Keith David. FOR NO REASON.

Get your priorities straight, man!
