Questionable Content: Webcomic of the [Arbitrary Time Frame]!

By Billy | August 6, 2008

No, I don’t have a Comic of the Week section for Rumbelow… And, honestly, I doubt it will continue this at all…  I have found that for the next couple of weeks, I have several long and empty hours in my day, and while and methodological doubt are good pass-times, I do tend to get bored.  (Is there even an I to get bored?  What if boredom is a concept I dreamt up and doesn’t actually exist?  Oh, wait.  This post is about a comic strip, not methological doubt.  HAR HAR HAR. I know.)  I think the effects of this ridiculous boredom are temporary, but extremely apparent.

<For some reason, I can’t hold back from mentioning that I saw a woman getting off the train today wearing an amazing hat not dissimilar to this.  Being the luddite that I am (with little-to-no care for gender boundaries when considering clothing) I was instantly in love with the hat and insanely jealous of the lady.  Just for a second though.  😀  I think it had a feather and everything, which seems weird to wear on the metro.>

In other news; our top story, actually…  I have run across a wonderful web comic called Questionable Content.  Right from the get-go you can see that the humor is not always PG, and after reading that first strip again, I don’t know why I decided, “yes, I will read more of this comic strip.”   Or how I ended up 500 strips later, but I can’t deny that this has stolen hours from my life.  In any case, my brother and I are both addicted to this — and I am so in love with his robot that I’m I am tempted to purchase merchandise from the artist.  The main character is about as socially awkward as I imagine myself to be, and twice as annoying with his overt expression of his tastes in music.  Many of the bands mentioned are ones I like, and many more that I’ve never heard of.  They inspired me to make a Pandora station with The Flaming Lips as the seed artist, which was entirely worth while (I have since been introduced to various other bands I’d heard of but never really listened to).  I can’t understand their (or my girlfriend’s) (sorry, babe!) obsession with The Fiery Furnaces, but that’s okay.  I do, after all, like the genre known as Fantasy Metal the characters poke fun of at one point, so I shouldn’t speak.

Anyway, I mentioned at one point that I created this blog with helping you kill time as one of the motives.  If nothing else, read this silly comic strip and help me achieve my goal. 

You can read all of Questionable Content here! Woooooo!

The-th-thee-the-the-thee-the-th-That’s all, folks!

    Hello Billy,
    I agree, that Robot is cooler than coolio. I doubt I would mess with that Robot if I was walking down the street. Well, maybe I would try and give it a high five or something.

    Comics/Comedy is always a nice way to fill up some empty time. You post caused myself to ask the question: Is there any difference between Comedy and Humor? Of course I am taking all the fun out of Comedy and/or Humor by over thinking about, which I sometimes am guilty of.

    I can imagine that hat that the woman was wearing on the subway added a lot of elegance to her look. I wouldn’t of catching a glimpse of the woman myself. On the Metro you do encounter a little bit of everything. If you want a quick way to discover and learn the culture in a particular city all you have to do is experience the city’s transportation system, both public and non-public transportation, but especially public. That is my own little theory that I picked up from somewhere a while ago.

    Oops I made a boo boo, I meant to say in that last paragraph that I would not have minded to catch a glimpse of the woman*

    YAY. QC is addictive. I’ve promised myself merch if I survive this week and start doing work. =] Pintsize is adorable. Hannalore is one of my favorite charactors though.

    love to you Billy!!!!

    Brannon, I can think of no comment to dignify your responses. Sorry, mate. 😀 😀 😀 😀

    Sarah, I can’t wait to get my “I Feel Pretty” Handbag. The Merchandise is great. I have been looking around for someone on campus to be wearing a QC product, to no avail! :(

    Hanners is quite the trip, isn’t she?
