The End of the Beginningby Timmy on May 16, 2011 at 12:01 am
Top o’ the morning to y’all!
This Monday’s update marks the last of the Mondays’ys, the honey moon period in which we’ve put up two comics each week. From now we’ll let poor Anna focus on her upcoming Alice-project, which you should read about in the future but still follow in Swedish on her blog . It’s been great fun thus far, and we’ve even had as many as FOUR unknown folks like our shit. From Google Analytics I can even discern that we have a reoccuring reader from Zimbabwe – isn’t that the absolute best thing all day? Thanks, mate!
This Monday’s also a lil’ bit special, because as I looked deep into Anna’s mind, I could see this little comical nugget brimming with fury. She didn’t know it was there, but I fetched it, raised it, and presented it to her after I’d feed it radiated beets for a week, and lo’ and behold: Amélie Art appeared! I hope you like it, I do feel prettily purdy proud of ourselves.
For those of you with doubts, let me put this straight: Co-operation is the best. Seriously. No man is an island, but two peeps are like a fucking nation of awesome!
In other news, I’ve been up and having at it with IT and tech the whole weekend. An iPad 2 is slowly, and ironicly while we’re on hipster grounds, finding it’s way down to my lap. I’m preparing for it much in the same way that most sane people prepare for the second coming of Christ, or perhaps their children should they know their children would be Superman when he grows up.

If you don’t have a special soft spot for this movie, your mother must’ve ripped out your heart out of your butt and replaced it with a stone when you were a child. I’m as mean as they come and I still i think it’s a wonderful piece of art.
Amelie (the character, not the movie) drives me ‘effing crazy though, so I got quite pleased when Timmy thought up a ‘what if’ that would put a nasty spin on her. ‘Cause this one’s all Timmy, he came up with the question (the way every comic starts) and then I refined it into a situation.
I’m starting to see a pattern in our different ideas (although we always run everything by one another a hundred times), mine tend to be mean, dry and twisted while Timmy’s just plain mad. No really, plain cuckoo! And often with plenty of references to internet phenomenas and puns – he’s the one who wants to please you, while I’m only in it to please myself. Then, on the other hand, we’ve known eachother for so long it’s impossible to tell our references apart anymore.
Doesn’t matter who came up with the question, there’s always a little Timmy in my stuff and a little Anna in his stuff.
