2P STOP!

TimWell, if art imitates life, then you can assume that I’m about to become a father! The day of anticipation is just around the corner (June 18th really is the due date). We do know that it’s a girl, she’s looking healthy, and she doesn’t have a name yet (suggestions?). It will certainly be the biggest change in my life, but I’m really looking forward to meeting my little daughter. On the comic front, it’ll certainly be interesting to see where we go from here. We don’t have any intention of actually killing the comic, despite Ray’s fears to the contrary. Life will be busier, but the comic must go on!

    Hmm. Amy is a good name. She always fancied Sonic.

    Congrats!

  2. D3vin says:

    Congrats, On the name front: I suggest either Your or Sarah’s mom’s names or middle name. Call her Rayline or Raymona so you are always reminded of your other relationship with the site. Call her Devon after your most devoted 2p Starter (read: ME). Call her Peach or Daisy or Amy or Rouge or Cream from those videogame series. Call her after the only girl from Mortal Kombat 1…

    Speaking of pregnant, I wonder what Sarah’s hot body looks like right about now… did it look like she ate a basketball?

    If I could, I’d be giving you a cigar man, again I congratulate you and your wife on the opening of a new chapter in your life.

    I suggest you make your daughter a Mii upon birth, so she is included in any future vidogaming she may engage in later on, better safe than sorry.

    Congratulations!!! Neeew Baaaby (read that in the Mario Party 4 ‘new record’ Toad voice).

    And as for names, even though a video game name seems obvious, I’ll be slightly more realistic. I really like the name Maya, as well as Jocelyn. And of course, something from the family can never be wrong.

  4. Jeff Frazier says:

    There is only one name for a girl.

    Inara

  5. GX Echidna says:

    I’m not sure what else to say beyond Congratulations, and Great Comic Guys (I don’t think I’ve ever made a comment that simple; it feels so strange)! We now know the purpose of the Swimming Pool of Money. It has officially become savings for college. Perhaps you can fill it with something else now. Something like responsibility, pride, or Dr. Pepper.

  6. RedVinnie says:

    congrats, tim!!!!! wow, well, I hope ur gonna post pics of her. great comic, and on the name idea, I’ve always thought, Skylar was a great girls name.

  7. Haniko says:

    THIS June 18th?
    We weren’t informed earlier?

    As for names….
    Miley? xD

    My gosh… That is just odd. “Sarah’s hot body looks like now”. Don’t think that he doesn’t watch you sleep Tim.

    Now that what i’ve wanted to say is out of the way, congrats Tim. You’ll catch up on your sleep in a couple of years. It’ll be great. I’ve always liked the names Annie, Aneeta and Thomasin. Not sure if they’d fit but it’s my two cents. (about two and a half australian right now.)

    Hope it’s, well… It’ll be an experience. Plus if you let Ray feature in her life she’ll take the loveable goofball part of him and (hopefully not though) your monotone. It’ll be awesome.

  10. steve-ohs says:

    Congradulations Tim!!!!
    and I want a 2pstart calendar!

  11. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Wow! Congratulations Tim! As for the name, I’ve got nothing as of now. Also, the comic was great! Let’s hope that Ray’s fears are just that, fears.

  12. Gneekman says:

    There is only one name for a girl.
    Inara

    I think you mean Kaylee.

  13. SQLGuru says:

    How about Talia: http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Thalia

    The name itself is one that would appeal to a mom but a dad could easily transform it into a nickname like Tails…….

  14. Kyzin says:

    I believe congratulations are in order. And consolations to Ray. “You’ll make it. You can make a comic without Tim’s help.”

  15. Moonjuice7 says:

    Great start, but i couldn’t load the last eleven panels. 😛

    As far as names go, how about Kelsey Christene. Then she could go by Kelsey, Chrisstene, Christy, K.C., or lots of other non-name related nicknames.

    If you wanted to be subtle you could name her Apple, so she doesn’t know she was named after Peach, but Apple is also the name of my neighbors really annoying dog so maybe that isn’t the best idea.

    and to finish it off, CONGRATULATIONS!
    (also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xd1lURjdy4I)

  16. Moonjuice7 says:

    Hah! I just noticed the 22nd and the 24th. More kudos to the both of you. ECG. (excellent this time)

  17. tustin2121 says:

    THIS June 18th?
    We weren’t informed earlier?

    @Tim: Congratulations!!

    I saw your Facebook mention it a few months ago (how did I become a facebook friend with you again? I think you did it after saw my profile pic as that Trivia For You award pic… 🙂 ). I saw the sonogram as your profile pic and I was going to comment, but I thought it would be weird for me to appear next to your family and friends and I also thought it was weird to make a comment here when you hadn’t mentioned it yet…

    Basically that’s a long winded way of saying “I wondered when you were gonna bring it into the comic. :)”

    On the name issue: DON’T name her after your wife and if you have a boy in the future, DON’T name him after yourself. DO NOT!! I have the same name as my father (except with a roman numeral 2 tacked onto the end) and currently we work in the same building. You have NO IDEA how many times people will send me his emails and visa-versa. Also, if someone sends you mail or a package, with the same name, you don’t know who it would be for! (especially around Christmas time when she gets older)

    I also say name her something original that isn’t in your family yet, because that will eliminate all confusion as well (not to mention that it is original). You can save naming after people for the middle name or (if your Christan) confirmation name (or religious equivalent). 🙂

    And damn if I didn’t just write a wall of text. 😀

  18. roadjcat says:

    Names? How about Rouge!?!? 😛 No I’m not serious. Maya’s actually a pretty cool name Tacos, plus it’s the name of two pretty spiffy video game characters. Crimson Viper and Maya from Phoenix Wright.

    Anyway, I can’t wait until June 24…when I get to see what this new addition to the site called “Crap” is. Sounds exciting!

  19. D364000 says:

    Hmmm… names um Candice, Maggie, Maranda, Jessica, Taylor…well after that I’ve got nothing.

  20. SinfulKnight says:

    Congad’s,
    She’s going to be a Gemini and is expected 2 days before my B-day.
    Your also lucky, You have 6 months between Christmas and her bday lol.
    As for a Name I Elika sounds Good, Zoey “In case she needs to survive the Zombie Hoard”, Raven, Cortana….. Ok I’ll stop looking at my Games while I think up names.

    ~S~

  21. ultimateDK says:

    Honestly, congratulations to the both…nay, three of you (Ray, you know that means you’re basically running the site on your own now lol.)

    I think you guys should just name your daughter something that both you and your wife would like, or maybe pick it together. I’d say let Ray give you suggestions, but….we know how that would end up (read: Sonic related names.)

    Seriously though, congratulations. I’m also looking forward to this weekly addition of “garbage” and “crap”…im not sure how you guys would approach those, because ive never seen either of those on your site before :p

  22. FireSpark says:

    First off love the Doomsday clock icon.

    And secondly, welcome to the world of Parenthood Tim. As a father of two, I know you’re gonna have a blast. In between the diapers, late night feedings, and wondering if she swallowed something whiel you weren’t looking.

    Kidding. No need to panic.

    Until she hits 16.
    Then the panic may begin.

    PS: Since everyone seems to enjoy basking in the appearance of grave risers, allow me to note that I ninja’d outta my grave way back on Feb. 16, for the Anti-Valenties comic.
    So does that make me a zinja? Or a nombie?

  23. There is only one name for a girl.Inara

    I think you mean Kaylee.

    Shiny! uh, I mean, River?

  24. Doopliss says:

    4 days before my birthday! But yeah, anyway, that was a good comic, not a sonic basher. How come the calender already estimated that the podcasts and comics were going to be crap? Ray should be a dad of a knuckles baby soon shouldn’t he? If that wedding went over well…

  25. Congratulations Tim & Sarah!

    Also, I just noticed, it’s the return of the Raybobama logo.

  26. sheppy says:

    Congrats Tim,

    Don’t worry about the comic though… I could always do some guest writing. I’d introduce a sassy black woman who’s main catch phrase would be “Mmmmmhmmmmm” and would say “Oh no you didn’t” any time a new Sonic game is announced.

  27. Bobipine says:

    If we take in considaration that most of your comics comes (i think) from a last minute discussion, that could be taken as if this just happened, but that would make the pregnacy either 8 months short, or 4 months overdue, I doubt it’s either of that, I’d say more October or November if I’d have to base myself on the blurry calendar in Ray’s appartment… Well as long the comic still exist, some website have garbage and crap to sometimes, unless it’s supposed to mean that monday is the day to take out the trash, and wednesday is when Tim come around with the baby…. long comment for what it’s worst isn’t it?

  28. ultimateDK says:

    wait why would you write down the date on your physical calendar, ray? you have an iphone there, why dont you make use of some of its apps? unless this comic is also making fun of the iphone! ha! i got the secret message! xbox360 rules!

    lol

  29. Betta splenden says:

    Congrats Tim! Hope the babys healthy!

  30. Betta splenden says:

    Wait a- oh, oh yeah, real mature guys. A 2P Start Calender in Ray’s house yet again! When are you going to release it!

  31. igorpwnweed says:

    I like Lilli, but f you want to go for something video-gamey, DON’T! You don’t even know if she’ll like them! Well, unless you hold an SNES in front of her when she comes out. Hey… that’s not a bad idea! Just make sure that if you can’t carry a console so you just grab a game, god forbid it’s Sonic Unleashed! HEY DADDY! PRESS THE A BUTTON TO CRADLE ME!!!!!

  32. Tacos says:

    There is only one name for a girl.Inara

    I think you mean Kaylee.

    Shiny! uh, I mean, River?

    How about Saffron?

  33. The Anarchyz says:

    Congrats Tim, here’s a suggestion of names:

    Peach, Tifa, Zelda, Misty, Aerith, Jill Valentine, Rinoa, Yuna, Rikku, Terra, Mai, Chun-Li, Ada, Samus, Aya, Ultimecia, Roll, Lara, Sabrina…

    you know where i’m going with this right? XD

  34. zijjh says:

    Congrats Tim, it really will be a great experience and will change your look on life! (Panic Now!)

    JK, but in terms of names, I have always like Lily, Nikki, or Teresa!

    Just a question, will this be like a comment of the week, where one lucky 2pStarter will get their name chosen? Seriously though, congrats!

  35. TomX says:

    I seriously can’t believe that no one has suggested Lace yet.

  36. tustin2121 says:

    Wait a- oh, oh yeah, real mature guys. A 2P Start Calender in Ray’s house yet again! When are you going to release it!

    Next year, obviously! Because a) if you hadn’t noticed, the calender has the most recent comics on it (notice how June’s month is black? That’s because there’s nothing to put there yet!) and b) from a sales stand point – no one buys calenders in the middle of the year anyway. They’re much better sold at the beginning and end of the years.

    I think it would be better to make a digital calender as a Vista Gadget/Yahoo Widget/Google Widget thing, which grabs the most recent calendar image to display (along with the proper “comic”, “podcast”, “garbage”, “crap” notations). 🙂

  37. Ray says:

    I seriously can’t believe that no one has suggested Lace yet.

    Hey, hands off my kid’s name!

  38. Wait a- oh, oh yeah, real mature guys. A 2P Start Calender in Ray’s house yet again! When are you going to release it!

    Next year, obviously! Because a) if you hadn’t noticed, the calender has the most recent comics on it (notice how June’s month is black?

They’re much better sold at the beginning and end of the years.

    Haven’t all the in-comic calendars been made from wallpaper in the Extras? There’s only 11 of those…

    Also, I would totally buy a 2P START! 2009-2010 Fiscal Year Calendar.

  39. bennifer3000 says:

    Looks like somebody didn’t use the “noob tube”.

    Just kidding. Longtime reader, first-time commenter. Congrats.

  40. tustin2121 says:

    Haven’t all the in-comic calendars been made from wallpaper in the Extras? There’s only 11 of those…

    …if you really want to count that funky Bowser wallpaper that could have been so much more…….I count 10.

    Also, I think I could totally make a 2P Start Calender Gadget, considering that it’s only HTML, XML, JavaScript, and pictures – like those in the extras section. Granted, I only have Vista and Yahoo gadget engines to test on…

    The only remaining question is how long before I inevitably lose interest in this project too… sigh… I hate my unmotivated self…

  41. ultimateDK says:

    Also, I would totally buy a 2P START! 2009-2010 Fiscal Year Calendar.

    I second that. Despite the fact that I don’t know what fiscal means

  42. William says:

    Name = Fanny Mae

    or

    Undine

  43. Ryman says:

    Well…it looks like Ray is going to have to go back to running through loops and collecting rings again. Maybe the Ra…I mean Sonic games will pick back up now. Too bad we won’t have a comic to share the times with.

    Well, congrats Tim. I hope her birth is a smooth one.

    Oh, and name her Kefka. JK, that’s not even a girl’s name!

    Well, atleast go for Madyson or Timletta or something.

  44. fierce diety says:

    Ah wow congrats! hope that 2pstart doesnt die though.
    as for name suggestions you could be awesome and name her saria, marin, anju, romani, nayru or farore 🙂

  45. Matteron says:

    ok well nice nowing you guys i’m going to go commit suicide now…bye bye cruel world(have you ever noticed it’s always Tim’s fault)

  46. Matteron says:

    Oh ya almost forgot congrats now let’s see…hmm a name…oh oh I no Tamantha

  47. DrOswald says:

    I don’t think that this site is going to die. I do predict that we are going to see a lot of proud dad comics come this fall.

    Congrats.

    Oh, I liked the comic, especially the garbage and crap scheduled on the calender.

  48. Narnian says:

    Congrats to you and your wife Tim! My birthday happens to be June 27… Anyway, please don’t name her anything androgynous. Both of my parents are named Terry. O_O

  49. D3vin says:

    Congrats to you and your wife Tim! My birthday happens to be June 27… Anyway, please don’t name her anything androgynous. Both of my parents are named Terry. O_O

    You think you got it bad, Two managers at the McDonald’s I used to work at were both named “Kelly” and they both got married to each other so that they both had the same LAST name, Thank goodness for middle names

  50. chief1185 says:

    I would think maybe Allison or Rachel

  51. chief1185 says:

    Oh ya and Congrats!!!!!

  52. Snifit says:

    Challenge Complete: Grave Risen

    Congrats on the news Tim!! My sister had her son about a month ago and its a strange feeling holding a little one in your arms. It is great fun (granted its not MY kid but still…) I look forward to seeing pictures of the Amy Rose bonnet from Uncle Ray.

    Long time fan of the comic (since the Brawl Auditions) and the podcast (since the Boss Music episode) and decided to mosey on out of my grave.

    Also, love this comic. Another good laugh from 2pStart.com. Keep up the good work!

  53. poopie says:

    Call her Devon after your most devoted 2p Starter (read: ME).
    Speaking of pregnant, I wonder what Sarah’s hot body looks like right about now… did it look like she ate a basketball?

    -D3vin Curry

    please stop being a creep.

  54. Snifit says:

    Augh! Almost forget, a name!
    I’ve always been partial to Samantha and Rachel myself. If you want a game name go for Zelda. It worked for Robin Williams’ daughter

  55. Supersonic24 says:

    lol, Nice comic guys. Don’t worry Ray, it’ll be fine, you’re the one that makes the comic (Tim keeps the site running, but you’re the artist, plus you have a sense of humor yourself). Names… well I have a few:
    Timona
    Timantha
    Rayline
    Lace
    Miley
    Amy
    Joe (lol, jk)
    Peach
    Daisy
    and in all seriousness, Serene. That’s my niece’s name.

  56. yes says:

    Carla.

  57. The Gastronomic Gamer says:

    Ray, did you write “2P START! DIES” in blood?

  58. NOT The Gastronomic Gamer says:

    Congratulations! Tim, you better bring this child up on games correctly. As soon as s/he can talk, give him/her an NES controller and give a history of games class in chronological order so that s/he can appreciate the finer points of games and how far gaming has come.

    Congratulations! Tim, you better bring this child up on games correctly. As soon as s/he can talk, give him/her an NES controller and give a history of games class in chronological order so that s/he can appreciate the finer points of games and how far gaming has come.

    And when I said s/he, I totally meant she. 😀

  60. Anon says:

    For names, I’ve always been fond of

    Edith

  61. BadnikHunter says:

    Oh my, Tim, CONGRATS! Or NCG? I DONT KNOW. I like how it seems that once 2p Start! dies, Ray’s life starts spiraling down to simply garbage on mondays and ‘crap’ on Wednesdays

  62. Tim says:

    Isn’t it obvious? Once 2P START! dies, Ray will finally have time to take out the garbage on Mondays and take a crap on Wednesdays. He’s been so busy with the comic/podcast that he’s been piling up garbage in his house (and in his bowels) for two years!

  63. BadnikHunter says:

    Oh yeah, and for a name… Julianna?

  64. Ray says:

    Ha, Tim – what the heck…

  65. Airknight says:

    Save the “trash talking” for the podcast guys.

    Congratulations btw.

  66. darklink123 says:

    Congratulations.

  67. BadnikHunter says:

    Oh and i dont really dont get the logo. A clock? shouldnt Ray be the minute hand. Unless i just dont get it.

  68. darklink123 says:

    Also, Kudos if you remember me. I was the comment of the week in one of the earliest podcasts and haven’t posted since. Partially because of why my comment was the comment of the week…

  69. Tim says:

    darklink/Cozmo!!!

    How’s that finger treating you?

  70. DrOswald says:

    For names, I’ve always been fond of
    Edith

    I had a neighbor named Edith. She had a cat that would take a dump in our flower pots and she (Edith, not the cat) was always cranky, so I am not to partial to the name myself.

  71. Pieninja14 says:

    There is only one name for a girl.Inara

    I think you mean Kaylee.

    Shiny! uh, I mean, River?

    What about Jayne? Wait…
    (Firefly FTW)

    I’m not gonna say congratulations. Everyone else has said it, but not me. Instead, I will say what wonderful fortune has fallen upon thee! Prithee, let ye be jubilant. Blah blah blah.

    A good piece of advice is a name that can be shortened to a smaller nickname. Have them grow up and be called by the shorter name all the time. Then, you can call them their full name and they know they are in serious trouble.
    Seriously though, a name that can be shortened can be great. They can choose how they want to be addressed. I have a name like that, I like eet.

    For actual name suggestions, I have always love names that begin with S, such as Serene, Sonia, etc. What about Holly, Julia, or Larissa? Those are good names too. I don’t know, something that rolls off of the tongue.

  72. Some_Guy says:

    Congrats! Best of luck to you and your child 🙂
    For a name i suggest…….ZELDA 😀

  73. Name her Ada… I like that name so much. Congrads Ray!

  74. mocliamtoh says:

    For the people suggesting (serious) names, one thing to consider is how the first name works with the last. For example, one of my friends was almost named Bruce…nothing wrong with that in and of itself (mind you, I don’t like the name, but never you mind). The problem (almost) was that his last name is Lee.

    As for my suggestions:
    Rydia : Final Fantasy IV
    Jessica : Ray’s album

    P.S. Congratulations Tim

  75. ubuntun3rd says:

    Congrats on the third player! No wonder Tim was kinda freaked out by those comments way back about wanting your children…

    Don’t worry Ray; it’s just like another boss battle that you know you’ll get through eventually…(Just imagine that the whole thing is a portal to the next level of Pixel Vision with Lace and the baby is just a cute obstacle that later becomes your greatest sidekick.)

    BTW, Tim, tell Sarah to make the baby 3 days overdue. Then I can share a birthday with her!

  76. 87392v says:

    Dare I suggest it? I do–
    Name her Samus!

    But on a more serious note, I’ve always had a partiality towards the names Elyse and Amelia.

  77. Nezume says:

    Ive decided to rise from my grave to congratulate you! I’ve always loved the comics so please don’t destroy 2pstart. About the name, you could do something videogamey but subtely so she will only know about it if shelikes video games. Amy or Rosalina would be cool.

  78. BadnikHunter says:

    darklink/Cozmo!!!
    How’s that finger treating you?

    Woah, after reading that, i realized who he was! My head liteally lifted up in remembering. Hope you’re finger’s better!

  79. Chip says:

    Shew!!!! I just started liking you guys.

  80. SGYDK says:

    If I had a daughter, I’d probably name her samus. but then again, considering the way kids are total jerks, that’d probably not be a good idea.

  81. Hyper Dude says:

    *sigh* 2p start had a good run.

  82. D3vin says:

    please stop being a creep.

    I am not, It is a running gag of sorts that Tim’s wife is hot, and Pregnancy has a way of making ones look funny because of the big belly.
    It probably came out the wrong way, please stop being a creep about me being a creep

  83. thisismax says:

    This was priceless 🙂 Another great one!

  84. Smickers says:

    You should try Lura as a name for your little girl. It sounds mysterious, almost video-game like, and it’s quite unique.

    How many girls do you know who has the name Lura?

  85. Gadoink says:

    Name her Tim.

    No, wait, that’s not what I meant…

    How about Violet?

  86. 64Cheese says:

    This was a triumph!
    I’m making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS!
    It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction.
    …Don’t call her Gladice/GLaDOS.

    A couple people suggested you call her Samus. If you are gonna go with a video game character, make it more subtle than that! Call her Samantha or something. Little Sammy can be a normal person, and you still get the joy of telling her she’s a video game heroine.

  87. FluffyPanda says:

    Congratulations Tim.

    My first is due in September, so I know how you must be feeling right now.

    At least I know how I’m feeling – ABSOLUTELY FREAKIN’ INCREDIBLE!

    And I assume that you’re also kind of pleased 😉

  88. darklink123 says:

    Kudos.

  89. Lozaiah says:

    Congrats Tim! First Child?? Hey, in time for Father’s Day! XD
    Anyway, hope 2p Start really doesn’t die.. and I want a 2p Start Calendar too!!!

  90. Jose says:

    Casandra!

  91. JTkitteh says:

    Oh wow congrats! Love how you worked that into a comic, though. lol.
    As for names… Hm… Someone suggested Maya which is a good name… What about something simple like Jenna?
    Or maybe Eva or Aislinn (pronounced Ashlynn)

  92. Anon says:

    lol, yeah

    Tim, if you have a son, name him Richard!

  93. fhqwhgads says:

    K0|\|GR47Z! As for names? Maybe Chell. It’s the name of the main character from Portal, which is a game that you guys should definetly make a comic about.
    I’m thinking along the lines of one of you being an Aperture Science test subject and then one of you does something stupid with your Portal gun, a turret, or a companion cube.
    But back on topic. You could also call him/her Morgan. Morgan Freeman is the main character of Half Life 2. Or maybe Sasha. In Team Fortress 2, the Heavy’s gun is named Sasha.

    Whoa, Orange Box fever, here.

    Isn’t it obvious? Once 2P START! dies, Ray will finally have time to take out the garbage on Mondays and take a crap on Wednesdays. He’s been so busy with the comic/podcast that he’s been piling up garbage in his house (and in his bowels) for two years!

    What about wednesdays, when he should be taking a crap? He’s apparently not so… *throws up*

    You could also call him/her Morgan. Morgan Freeman is the main character of Half Life 2.

    I think you mean GORDON Freeman… (sweatdrops) Same protagonist as Half Life 1. It’s Gordon.

    Hi Jordan!
    Anyone else get it?
    I don’t think they do. Just sayin’
    Although GX Echidna would if he saw this.

  101. Gadoink says:

    Crud, messed up my comment.
    The quote was supposed to end after “Anyone else get it?”, but I was using my iPhone and forgot the other end of the HTML

  102. zombieman 98 says:

    well, i guess it’s about time i rose from my grave. i don’t have much to say about this comic (it is funny though). i’ve been reading since about here: http://www.2pstart.com/2008/04/30/so-close-yet/ and i really enjoy the comic. as for the podcasts, i’m still catching up on those, but they’re funny as well.

    keep up the good work.

  103. Wyrm says:

    Damn you Ray and Tim! Just when I thought I could control myself and find a perfect time make my rise from the grave special, you guilt me into rising prematurely.

    On a serious note, Congratulations Tim! I hope you and Sarah the best with (and for) your baby. This includes ignoring any and all suggestions for names coming from this comic (unless you wish to scar your daughter for life as a social experiment).

    Well, I figure I can try to make this special and guess that the June 2009 Calender picture has to be from lost in translation (Comic #102
    01/21/09 Panel 3 OR Wallpaper 3). I see dark-green highlights, and although blurry, I can’t find any other comic with such dark colors.

    Although I’d like to say I’ve listened to every podcast, there’s just toooooo many of them, and to make up for it, I’ve listened to the first 5 and the last 25. That sums up most of them right?

  104. nintendogamer101 says:

    Congrats, Tim! I can’t think of any names off the top of my head . . .

    And by the way, in the comic. Is Tim . . . crying? Is it just me or is there a tear in his eye?

  105. Ryman says:

    And you’ll be devoting so much time and money to raising your daughter that your poor swimming pool of money will be become an ocean of diapers and expired baby food!

    WOOT!

    It looks black? That’s strange… try tilting your screen and or going to the site on a monitor that has been color-fixed. There’s most definitely a green highlight that looks like ground/forest. As a semi-artist and a user of illustrator/photoshop/gimp… I make sure I keep my monitor as close to color perfection as I can. xD.

    Well im already registered here as BadnikHunter, so I’d stay as that here. As for the spindash, I guess I’ll tell GX to further refer to me as BadnikHunter just so there’s no confusion. I can’t tell you how many times i was about to type “BadnikHunter” as my name when leaving a comment at the Spindash

    Do you guys really need to keep quoting the posts directly above the one you’re making? Really?

    Sorry, it’s a pet peeve of mine, but seriously, if you spend more time scrolling through quoted comments than you do for some of Ray’s comics, there’s a problem.
