We bring Steve Gordon back (for the first time in Season 3) to discuss the HOW Conference in June (use Steve’s promo code SG10 to save $50 on registration) and the little fight Apple is having with Adobe in regards to Flash. Is Flash really crashing Macs at a rate that only Stitch was built for? Is Flash bad for iPhones and iPads, but good for Google? It’s so far around the Internets I’m not even sure which tube to link to.
But as important as all of this is, when walking though the local No Frills Wednesday evening, I ran across this year’s new flavors of Mountain Dew – so figured we’d start the show with another taste test. I guess you can vote for your favorite flavor online, but since the site is in Flash, it crashed my Safari browser and won’t show up on my iPhone. Strange. But are trying new flavors of Dew safe? We didn’t know either, so we brought Chris Kelly back to have him test with us.
Let us know your thoughts below, and enjoy.
Leave it to me to have a comic ready to go for today that has nothing directly related to graphic design in it (you know, aside from the fallout inherent in slicing off your own finger making mockups) on a day where we were named one of HOW Magazine’s Top Ten Websites for Designers. If you like what you see, get your follow on for the latest comic updates.
However, if the above is not your cup of tea, we did just put the finishing touches on our second episode of the third season of The Reflex Blue Show, upon which Donovan toils next to me. It should be available shortly.
There’s no telling what that doctor is going to do when he finds out about the spray mount.
The recovery from Finger Gate is proceeding, though slowly, and I must apologize for the near week-long absence of the comic. If you are bothered by it, I encourage you to accidentally lacerate yourself in the most useful part of the most useful finger of your most useful hand. No, actually, don’t do that.
Obviously though, if you did, and you had some Super 77 hanging around, well, it just starts to make sense, doesn’t it?
So this comic took a little extra doing. Actually, it took the normal amount of doing, just with the added benefit of a right hand index finger plagued by seven stitches and a formerly gaping slice.
I took a chunk of a finger off a few years ago at my first job making a mockup under pressure, and I once had to drive a student to the emergency room when she did the same thing only way worse. This injury way less heroic where putting your life on the line for your job is concerned. After years of cutting everything I could get my hands on with a super-sharp exacto-knife, I cut the living crap out of myself… washing a steak-knife in my sink.
Seven stitches and still rocking the comic. Booya.
