News: July 2005

A heart that goes, 'Haaaaaay!'

Our gay-feline-hobo-robo storyline ends here for now with today's comic, which reveals that Moon, while very talented and handy with the technology, is not perfect.

PJ and I are still futzing with demonic tools of Web page creation, stuff we maybe should have learned like in 2000 -- databases, php and CSS. It's a bit like learning to program your VCR today. There are probably better ways of doing things, I'm sure, but we like being behind the curve, like a blown out tire chunk, or litter.

We've begun implementing a tool called "Comikaze" to streamline posting comics and posts. We're hoping that archives news posts will match up to their corresponding comics. One thing we haven't figured out yet is whether we can still do comments on this new system since we won't be posting with Blogger anymore. If anyone knows this stuff better than us and can tell us how to use comments on a php/css/database-driven Frankenmonster site, we sure would appreciate it.

Unless you think comments are useless anyway and that it's better we just turn them off. That's an option, too.

Anyway, we'll see y'all next week. Have a lovely end of July.

Robofop

I told you we weren't finished with this robot business. What kind of business is revealed today in a brand-spankin' new, web-based comical strip.

Omar and I got into a debate on what the gay cat robot means by "anudda." I wonder whether it implies the bot has experimented before. Omar theorizes that it simply is self-referential like "I want to meet a gay cat robot not unlike myself." Which is totally not out of the ordinary at all. Alas...the world may never know.

New comic Wednesday.

Tethered Terror

Well shit. I thought I had posted the other day about the comic coming along slowly, but Blogger ate it. I figure you guys know by now that we're not going to stiff you guys on the updates (we do update) without a really good reason, and I'm sure our fans are the patient type, but still I'd like to let you know when you can expect our comic if it's not going to be up when it's supposed to be.

Nonetheless, there's a new comic today. Woohoo! You'll notice that we've decided to continue with what we started on the last comic with our robot kitty, and don't think we're done yet.

The Transformers theme is probably something resulting from subliminal and sub-atomic things tearing away at our minds after hearing about the live-action movie iteration of the 'bots being delayed till 07.

Omar and I are still working on site changes and stuff so I think you can expect the next comic on Monday. See you then.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

On this day a year ago, we launched the Space Monkeys! website. Woo!

You may have noticed there was no comic yesterday, the three of you. There was a slight change of plans with what we were doing, but we've got it all straightened out now. However, I have to work in a few hours so I can't stay up to have the comic up today. Look for the next one to be up on Friday, with more to come next week on their regularly scheduled days.

Hey, we can take our anniversary off, right?

Also, you might've noticed we finally got rid of that cumbersome Archives page in favor of a simpler setup. That's just a prelude to what we hope to have in the works in the near future to make this place run smoother. Look for some new wallpapers (Murphy and Bart) coming down the pipe as well.

See you guys Friday.

Power Play

Well, technically, we're still on track with the updates.

Toda...tonight's comic features among other things a green tax collector's visor and a giant cat robot or something. Yes, I suppose that's what I drew.

You may have also noticed the return of Bobbo's fur. It took a leave of absence for quite some time because I never felt it looked right. I finally figured out how to get it the way I want it so I hope you enjoy the texture.

I have a feeling a giant cat robot is too delicious a thing to avoid in future comics. We'll try, but I just don't think Omar and I have the willpower to avoid feline bots, ya know?

Isn't it ironical?

The last of the three-part "Return of the Moon Weasel" storyline (we call it, perhaps misnomerly, "The Road to Success") concludes today with a smooshing, which is probably not unexpected for us.

We'll be back next week with more monkey goodness.

Mama Kong

We really didn't want to break the continuity of the Moon Weasel strips, but we just couldn't pass up this opportunity to do some Murphy and Bartholomew. The Moon Weasel series will conclude on Wednesday.

This strip raises some very serious intergeological questions. Have we not come far enough in today's society that an oversized gorilla can fornicate with a volcano? If so, can we watch? And so on.

Have a safe 4th, everybody.
