For the record, I’ve put a lot more thought into the idea of the Homo Depot than anyone should. You should know, however, that it would be probably the most awesome place to shop for home improvement stuff OF ALL TIME.
Anyway, I don’t know how many of you do the Facebook. I’m not really into it myself, but somebody made a group for Between Failures. So join it if you like and do whatever it is people do in a Facebook group. You can even stalk me, but be warned… I’ll be REVERSE STALKING YOU!
I’m always late to the various fad things on the Internet, like Myspace, Twitter, and that. Once everybody else moves on I’m usually still there long after it’s officially over. My friends talked me in to Twitter and, of course, they barely use it now. Some are on Facebook, but I never really got into Facebook. Still, having pages on all the random fad sites is the done thing when you have a comic. Everybody is kind of milling around hoping that someone, who has a lot of influence, will find their stuff and rocket them to fame. And why not? It’s not like it costs you anything other than time.
I like Twitter best because it’s fast to read and mostly people don’t spam it with annoying stuff. I hate Myspace/Facebook ‘games’. If ever you invite me to play one, no matter how much I like you, I’m not gonna. I have scores of unfinished games that are GOOD that I don’t play. Fuck Farmville.
Myspace has gotten so bad I hardly ever log in anymore. It’s choked by so much crap even on a good day it has trouble loading. At least with Facebook you get maybe the one ad and it loads pretty fast. The built in chat thing startles me though. Honsetly I don’t know how to use social networking stuff to my advantage. I think it works better if you have a thing you sell. Some dude who sells random Japanese crap added me on twitter and I started following him because the stuff he sells is interesting. Then I was like, ‘Oh, so that’s how Twitter is supposed to work…”.
