You have all betrayed me.

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

You have all betrayed me.

filthy monkeys.
Just last night, I determined this. Last night, I walked out of a bookstore and stood on the sidewalk for a few minutes, reading, and realized that all of you filthy little monkeys must hate me.

Must despise me.

Must nightly wallow in beds of your own feces and vomit, plotting unimaginably heinous vengeance upon me for reasons that I don't want to comprehend.

Why do I know this?
I picked up a couple used trade papers of Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan.


I'd never read Transmetropolitan.
I'd never even really looked at the artwork.
I'd never even gotten a firm picture of who these people were.
I knew NOTHING.
I simply knew that Warren Ellis wrote it, and I like his blog so I decided perhaps I should read his fiction.

Perhaps I should read his fiction.

HOW COULD YOU PEOPLE ABANDON ME LIKE THIS? WHY DID YOU NOT REFUSE TO SPEAK TO ME UNTIL I HAD READ SOME OF THIS?

WHY DO YOU HATE ME?

Fuckers.

I hate this place.

gee, I think the book made something of an impression.
  • DONT BLAME US CUZ U SLACKED OFF ON WHATS COOL
    • HOW was I supposed to know it was COOL when NOBODY I KNEW TOLD ME, you ordure-dripping jizz-stain?

      You people told me nothing.

      You conspired, in silence, to maintain silence.
      But now, I know.

      OH HOW I KNOW.

      Where's my fucking bowel disruptor...
  • Damn! You're on to us. The jig is up.

    Damn it.
  • Honestly?

    I thought you were cool enough to have read it already. :/

    I'm sorry. I really, truly, am.
  • All the cool kids were already doing it... I just presumed... ;)

    What a blow for your street cred, though! Weep bitter tears dammit!

    *grins*
  • Holy shit, man. I honestly had no idea. Seriously, one of the few phrases I cannot imagine having the occasion to utter (or, more accurately, type) to you is, "hey, you know what is awesome that I bet you've never read is... "

    That comic rarely fails to make a big impression on people. Warren Ellis is a wonderfully sick and twisted human being :)
  • I've never read it. So step off!
  • Feh. We all assumed you were cool enough to find out about it without us telling you.
  • (no subject) -
  • I hate you because you brought me down from the mountain.
    *G*

    (None dare question Transmetro. If they do, I will kill them. I will kill them with MY COCK.)
  • I thought you'd already read it. Everyone else I know has.

    *facepalms*
  • Sweet God... how did you miss it all this time? It's been YEARS!

    Clearly you must turn the bowel disruptor on yourself in shame.
  • You're always way ahead of me on the cool new literature curve, and other people are way ahead of me on the cool comics curve; I figure it's their job to educate on comics. Come on, dude, I don't even leave the house. My reading material comes through a tube.

    But I have done ACTUAL SCIENCE AND RESEARCH on how to make a bowel disruptor. If I succeed, you are on the list for one of the first models. Since you've now read Transmet, you are no longer on the list of test subjects. And besides, I gave cigarettes to Mr. Ellis, which you'd sort of provided, so killing me is tacky.
    • Come on, dude, I don't even leave the house. My reading material comes through a tube.


      Heh, heh. "Reading tube."
  • I bought that book for like 5 years but I finally dropped it because it was a little too manic for me (it was fun, but I didn't see any real purpose after the first couple of story arcs). Maybe it helps to know more about Hunter S. Thompson? I dunno, but I still have 50-some issues that I may yet read again with an open mind. And I'll bet it reads better in trades.

    Of course, I also don't get Warren Ellis all the time (although I love Planetary).
  • Errr...

    *heads to the LUBS to look for this*
  • I plead similar ignorance. *peer* That sounds like a hellishly good recommendation, though.
