Nobody came to my Winter Solstice party

Nobody came to my Winter Solstice party I'm not accusing anyone, just asking why and what gives.
via the most amazing thing I have ever found on the internet, without exception, the spectacular, hilarious, awe-inspiring, truly monumental, brilliant and moving Leisuretown

Okay, that is damn funny. The "Christmas Time Suicide Balloon Consumer Alert" is as well. Is the site being updated?

Do not miss Leisuretown's masterpiece of self-loathing--though post-crash it actually seems a little quaint.

Not often, but CHECK THE ARCHIVES!!!
The REAL leisuretowns are AMAZING, some over 100 pages long, EVERY PAGE BEING AN EPIC COMPOSITION OF OVER 100 LAYERS IN PHOTOSHOP. The creator recently stopped doing the epic strips in favor of ones like these but the epic ones ARE TRULY ASTONISHING. I cannot overemphasize the quality of this work. The hundreds of hours of making everything perfect, going on site to photograph stuff and then filling it with a WORLD OF BENDY TOYS with HILARIOUS WRITING and REAL HUMAN STORIES.

In one strip, a character characterized by his love of masturbation goes to the park and jerks so fast HE GOES BACK IN TIME FIVE MINUTES and meets himself. He follows his past self home and says "I'd better not do any chores or garden work. It could alter the future with DISASTROUS RESULTS". UTTERLY HILARIOUS. Best site on the internet, as I said. The suicide balloon one SUCKS compared to the others.

Settle:

1. After the Andrew W K experience, I no longer trust your judgement.
2. STOP YELLING!

Having said that, Leisuretown is muy bueno.

wiggles is pretty good :) and the gripping beecomix!
posted by kliuless at 4:01 PM on April 8, 2002


That wiggles joke is similar to one in Jerkcity (Jerkcity is made up of four characters, one who irl makes Leisuretown - jerkcity is the more toilet related humour side of that person. The strip is published daily).

Something like Rands' "ode to the homeless of San Fransisco":
Oh Homeless
Oh Homeless
Strong of Heart
Strong of Mind
Get out of the way before I beat you with my fucking nuts
Thank you.

yeah, i wish there were like soundtracks to comicstrips to make them more like animated shorts, except without animation :) the web is so silent, yet the web could do this! (btw, i like leisuretown.)

it just got updated this afternoon.

What is the name of that Microsoft chat program all the Jerkcity pages are based on, anyone know? Does it still exist anywhere?
posted by rodii at 5:47 AM on April 9, 2002


No..they stopped supporting it. It was called MS Comic Chat, and the character art was drawin by Jim Woodring.
posted by Settle at 4:07 AM on April 10, 2002


Now that you mentions it, that is so obviously Woodring art. Cool.
