"Vincent has recently discovered his robot friend is amorously tied to the toaster."

"Vincent has recently discovered his robot friend is amorously tied to the toaster." Interesting multimedia comics about an HIV+ man and his robot roommate. Somewhat autobiographical it would seem, deadrobot.com brings humor to a somewhat humorless subject. A delight to read and an interesting look into the side effects of "the cocktail."

from what i read (the first three chapters), it was a pretty entertaining comic... too bad there's not too much in the archives yet. i'll be sure to check the rest out when i get home.

Thanks, bondcliff.
Anything which rehumanises us is welcome and humour - humor even! - is still the best method.
Check out andrewsullivan.com for an inspiring example of real humour. He's a sort-of-conservative gay columnist who is HIV-positive but uses his life experiences to deepen his and our understanding of, oh, just about everything. He's also an incredibly healthy bodybuilder and prolific journalist so the joke, thank G-d, is even more on us, non-gay, non-HIV positive, non-prolific writers.
