DJ's Birthday Wish

DJ turns the big 23 today and the probability of this actually happening is much higher than acceptable.  Anything for his birthday.  There is only one a year after all.  On a side note I do find it interesting that they are doing a re-release of the Justin Bieber movie (which is also available in 3D for those of you that had your fingers crossed) as a directors cut version.  Something like 40 minutes of new footage being swapped out with old footage.  I'm not exactly sure on the details.  I guess it's a good way to keep the Bieb cash train a rollin'.

DJ will also be up in Seattle at the Emerald City Comic Con from March 4th through the 6th selling prints of his work and representing Get Job so be sure to stop by his booth and say hi.  I think we even have a few stickers left to hand out.

Happy Birthday DJ,

Presidents' Day PunchOut

Because we all want it to happen.  The Founding Father vs. the Savior of the Union.  Both total heroes of American history and let's face it, they could probably both throw down in the ring.  When that bell would ring, a fury of physical and verbal strategery would be flying around that four sided cage of excitement.  Best President's Day main event ever.

Happy Presidents Day,

Valentines Dance Dilemma!

At first we were having a hard time coming up with a Valentines Day comic.  Neither of us have any sort of crazy experiences from this holiday to really pull from and we had to put in some serious effort to not make it homoerotic.  Thankfully, after the idea of doing a mid 80's to early 90's movie trailer like those used for good vibe, buddy movies and romantic comedies was brought up it was a clear choice.  And really, I think we'll jump at any opportunity to use these new characters, Zach McFly and the Fresh DJ of Bel-Air.  I can assure you they'll make another appearance.  I don't know when or how long it's will take to think of a reasonable situation for this but it's going to happen.  

Some big news this Monday.  Get Job has partnered up with the website, Awesome Robo!.  It's a great site that will be featuring our comic every Monday as well as several other really great pictures, videos and articles throughout the week.  Be sure to check them out! We are really excited to be featured on such a great site.

Also for those of you who don't know, we've got a sweet Facebook page that we update every Monday to remind you when a new comic is posted. It also keeps you up to date on any other Get Job related news we might have.  You can either go to it here and like us or you can like us from here on the upper left side of the blog!

Happy Valentines Day,

Raising the Stakes

I remember going to my friends house over lunch at school to see this game.  The most common occurrence involved one of us getting about halfway though the level and then getting killed.  Either by some devious monster hiding in a shadowed corner or by another player brought into our level with plans of destruction and making us lose all of our precious collected souls.  Either way frustration set in and the prospect of redoing a bunch of work wasn't appealing.  It's kind of weird that  the frustration and the difficulty of the game played such a big part of why it was so fun and addicting.  I'm curious what kind of horrible punishment they have planned for dying with their sequel coming up.

Have a happy Monday,
