Jhonen signing at Chicago Comics (again) [Sunday, January 6th, 2008 - 2:26am]

iwanted2explode
[ mood | happy ]

 Well fellow Jhonen-ites (yeah, that was lame, shut up), I'm home, fed, and I've uploaded all my pics and scans from Saturday onto Photobucket. Without further ado, here is the stuff you wanna read/see. If you want my full day, go ahead and check out my personal LJ.

We got to Chicago Comics early as shit this year. 12:30, I think. Anyway, the shop owner wasn't there, and we wanted our tickets in line. So we had to wait until 2, when he got there, to get our tickets. I got number one, again. :D Oh! And a little flyer. I have a couple, and one is hanging from my mini-fridge now. Score.

So, we walked around downtown a bit, grabbed some gub, went into The Alley, met up with some friends (but not  starmatter>:O ) and got our tickets when the owner got there. We volunteered to help out with anything he might want since we were pestering him and such, and he didn't really want us to, but was nice about it. So, we went and wondered more.

6:30 came around, and people started gathering around outside the shop. Girlfriend had Spooky with, and wanted to take a picture or two.

We got in line, waited for Jhonen and Jenny (heh, I just mistyped "Jelly") to arrive, and bullshiat. They came in the front door this time, which surprised me. You'd think he'd get mauled out there, but no. J & J talk with the owner and employees, and get comfy. They were asked for any food or drinks, and just wanted water for the moment. "And lots of candy!" I added. "Oh no, I'm full of sweets," Jhonen let us know. Apparently, people had been feeding him cupcakes. It probably doesn't help some people we met up with baked him some. D'oh!

Anyway, I started off by showing him my tattoo from last year, and he was surprised at how it "looks just like I drew it!" (Although, my arm wasn't big enough, so the tattoo artist shrunk it a bit, and removed a line from Minimoose's eye). He also complimented me on the design of my Zim shirt, which I thought was funny, since, ya know, he drew all the designs.

Jenny and Jhonen absolutely mixed into a perfect sauce. It's like anything one said, the other had something to say about that comment, and they both laughed about it all. You'd think they were dating or married or something. Not to imply anything... because I'm not! I'm just saying that they mixed well. Also, you know how Jhonen is notoriously short? So is Jenny. Shorter than Jhonen. O_o

Anyway, I asked them both to sign my newly purchased, first printing of Jellyfist. Jenny went first, while Jhonen started on my newly bought Johnny faces poster. I was expecting just signatures, but I think I made out OK. Still on Jellyfist, Jhonen also signed a JTHM Director's Cut I had left over (unread, too!) After Jenny finished, I asked them for my last request. I asked them to each draw me a bee. Why bees? I had flipped though Jellyfist earlier, and had seen Jenny's and fell in love with them. So, such bees we had.

My girlfriend had a Johnny faces poster signed, too, and wanted a few drawings. I'm not quite sure what she asked Jenny for, but it's kinda obvious. And she had it all planned what to ask Jhonen for: Zombie. That fucker makes me laugh each time I see it.

Oh, we had some friends from town with us this time, too. One asked for Minimoose on her filthy tie, which was amusing. Jhonen questioned how it got so dirty, and there was some random reply. I dunno... He made Minimoose's eye lop-sided! HA!! Oh, and the other friend had Jenny draw a cat on a bag she bought. On the other side, she had Jhonen draw Shmee. It was SO bad ass. Pics later, hopefully.

After small talk, mostly of how the first 4 people took 10 minutes from drawings (so everyone will get a pig! HA!) we said our goodbyes, and thanked them both for the sigs, drawings, and having the signing. Before we did leave though, I thought that we had forgotten to do something, but I couldn't remember what. I knew we had taken pictures, but were we forgetting something? I wasn't sure, so I double-checked.

And that was our experience with Jhonen at Chicago Comics this year. Hopefully he'll do another signing again next year, so we have an excuse to leave this shithole-of-a-town again.

On some side notes, I snagged a Squee! shirt. w00t! OH! And if you have a copy of Jellyfist, open the book to the 4th comic, Sign of Times, and read the first sentence of the commentary. Without knowing it, earlier in the day, the friends we brought from town went and ate at the same restaurant. Kinda weird and cool, huh?

EDIT -  I found a video of the signing on YouTube! Christ, they put that shit up quick. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9r0kigOjcE

SIGNINGS! [Sunday, December 9th, 2007 - 9:56am]

Jhonen's hitting the road again, if ya didnt know. I didn't, but now I do. Journal subscriptions rock.

Anyway, Jhonen will be in Arizona on New Years Eve at Arizona Comics, and will be back at Chicago Comics on January 5th (addresses are both on the sites). Not only will JV be carrying his own fleshbag, but he's bringing Jenny Goldman with. So if you haven't picked up Jellyfist yet, now would be a good time to run into oncoming traffic and pray to the mutated catfish in your pants.

Hope everyone's still alive, and has a great holidayz seasonal eggnog activity days. I might be travelling to see the Dum Fux. Score!

I'm looking fora hard copy of the Director's Cut. [Tuesday, October 30th, 2007 - 9:45am]

And from what I can see, its pretty much impossible to come cross.

Can anyone tell me if there's some place I can find it?

And what happened? Did it get banned, or what? Ludacris. I had no idea.

When I was getting dressed, I looked at my calander and noticed something - today is Jhonen's birthday! Well, the human parts that are left over, anyway. And yes, I have Jhonen's birthday written on my calander.

So, send Jhonen your birthday e-mails.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JV!

I was searching for images of facial piercing since I'm considering putting another hole in my face and sticking something sparkly in it. I was looking at pictures of people's mutilated and tattooed bodies and found this:

[ mood | shiny ]

For those of you who haven't noticed already, Jhonen has posted a whole damn lot this past weekend because of and about ComiCon.  I unfortunately live on the wrong coast, so I was not lucky enough to attend, but for those of you who didn't see:

"JELLYFIST - Jhonen Vasquez and Jenny Goldberg - Slave Labor Graphics

This one I didn't steal, and wouldn't want to, but someone stuffed it into my backpack and here it is. Writing is atrocious and the artwork looks like it was done at gunpoint by someone that was just beaten to within an inch of their life before having a pen jammed into a bullet-hole in their forehead and told to create something disgusting. Buy it, folks.

JV"


So go buy Jellyfist!!! 

I hope you are all having a good summer and a thousand apologies for updating this nearly as much as Jhonen typically updates his own journal, however, sadly, I think he's ahead of me on that from this weekend.  Foiled again!

My favorite quote:

"man...when I see some hipster jerk wearing a scarf in 70 degree weather, I want to go all Kratos on his ass, with my foot on his back, and my arms pulling at the scarf until his head snaps off...except I’m not a huge, cursed Spartan monster and am, instead, a scrawny, cursed Mexican. Same thing though."

Here's the link if you haven't already seen it and posted about it:

Yeah, so, let's get a spark going in here! 'Cause we're cool like that.

Jhonen doesn't have anything out yet! What's there to talk about? Uhh...

Well, I've been debating my next tattoo, and I'd like more of Jhonen's art permanently sodered onto my body. So, I'm looking for suggestions. And don't give me, "Get GIR! He's GREEN!!!" I want specifics - character, what s/he's doing, etc. Maybe even a page from a comic. Something!

I've actually been thinking of the Z? logo on my right arm...

Open your imaginations, so I may rain feces into your mouths!

[ mood | pleased ]

Thank You. Thank you to all nearly 90 members for allowing this community to grow the way it has, with the members that it has. When I started this community it was hard to gain members, and I never thought it was reach the number it has today. I know that this community has seemed a bit dead lately, and I apologize that it isn't snappy, but thanks for stopping by. I hope that you faithful readers and posters continue to stay faithful. I know that 90 members may not seem like much to some of you (since many jv communites are in the thousands...) I know that we are a moron-free community, and for that I, and I am sure the other mods are proud.

This ends the mushiness...please continue with your stink filled lives.

I just found out that Jhonen Vasquez plays Gears of War. The thought of shotgunning guys in the head, while chainsawing and pwning noobs with Jhonen on your team, just seems highly entertaining.

I just read FillerBunny #1 and my god...
It was horrible, here I am sitting at work LMAOing every 5 seconds and no one has any idea what's going on. It was difficult answering the phone without my voice breaking up (I work in reservations at a resort, answering phone's is my job *Kablam*). I need to get a hold of however many others there are. His pain makes me strangely happy. What sick creatures we are to enjoy such a thing...

hehe i know what you mean about people not posting, i mostly use my deadjournal and simply keep my lj for making icons from pictures, and keeping in touch with a few people who refuse to get dj. EVERY community on dj is dead, it saddened me. :(

i dont really have any news on jhonen, but they have alot of GIR stuff at hot topic right now, including this little messenger style purse i want so bad @_@

Yes, yes, no news of Jhonen lately. I get it. But what has happened to everyone? Did we all just fall of the face of the intarweb?

I know someone has doodled something or written something for fan art. Where's all that? Huh?

C'mon, people! Don't let the community die! It's closing in on 3 months of inactivity in here! Surely you don't need a psychopathic fan to liven the place up! I DUN WANNA! YOU CAN'T MAKE MEEEE!!!

...... On a related note, I don't have internets at home, nor do I have a good computer (running ME since 2000 - yuck). I'm going to be getting a new one here in the coming months, along with some form of broadband. Anyway, I have the Zim DVDs, and I want to put them on an iPod. Though, the DVDs may be copy-protected, or the computer may not let me copy due to restrictions. Or some crap that will (I'm sure) come up). So, my question is this: If I can get the DVDs copied, would iTunes let me download EVERY episode if I could prove I have the DVDs?

Hey, lookit that! I did good! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.
