The Joy Cannon Erupteth

Greetings, Reasonably Ludicrous reader folk! Man, have we had a wild ride. We’ve sailed through through a lot together: the long nights, the impossible odds, the various other choruses of Styx songs. We’ve learned some important things, like the value of an English Degree, how to duck your relatives, the key to having a happy Valentine’s day, and much much more.

But Sam and I cannot stop at a mere blog. We must take over the entirety of the internet! And for that, we will need…





That’s right. All the buildup has been leading to this climax. We’re launching a brand-new squeaky clean extra green webcomic!

It’s called The Joy Cannon and it will shoot heavy iron spheres of humor at you once or twice a week. It’s our newest weapon in the continued war on sadness, and we aim to use it to its full potential.

Now, with great cannoning power comes great responsibility or something, and now that Sam and I are moving sideways in the internet world, we may not have as much time for blog posts. But never fear! You’ll actually be getting more updates from us! We’ll still post on Reasonably Ludicrous once or twice a month, and now we’ll also be posting on The Joy Cannon 4 to 8 times a month. That’s like 7.5 things every 4 weeks!

I hope we didn’t hype this up too much. We didn’t mean to have so much buildup, but as an English major, I’m not very good at computer science and tinkering with all the web code took me longer than expected.

Thanks for being so supportive all the time. Sam and I love reading all your comments, and it’s been amazing to watch the positive response this blog has garnered. You guys are the best, and we hope we can attempt to entertain you for a long time to come.

So go ahead! Click on over to The Joy Cannon and see what you think! We’ve got 3 snazzy comics up there right now, and more are on the way!

Countdown to Launch

Something Big

Greetings, readers! For the first time in the 6 months since our inception, we’re going to skip a post (although the fact that I just told you that sort of makes the statement untrue). This blog has become bigger than all of us, and Sam and I must battle it back into submission before it overtakes our lives, reducing our fleshy bodies to nothing more than difficult-to-maintain marionettes with a constant desire for food.

Also, I’m starting to find out that people actually read the things I post here and that that can have real-life repercussions. (What?! Why did no one tell me this?)

Anyway, Sam and I are working on something BIG. One of our upcoming posts is going to be crazy art-intensive, and I didn’t want Sam to get carpal tunnel (He doesn’t have a fancy wrist protector like I do), so he needed some extra time to finish it. Plus, we’re working on something EVEN BIGGER that’s extra secret, so stay tuned for awesomeness. This future thing is so big that it will change our blog forever…Bum Bum BUMMM.

In the meantime, you can satisfy both your Reasonably Ludicrous addiction and your overly-heavy-wallet problem by like, buying something (not sure if that’s a good idea)? I created some new items, some of which I actually wanted. I think it was a bad sign that even I wasn’t purchasing anything before. But now I’ve bought myself a phone case and a bumper sticker, and people seem to think they’re pretty cool. Oh! And since we’re not very good at thinking ahead, the two newest items won’t show up, so here’s direct links: tree t-shirt, owl-cat t-shirt.

Also, if you need to fill the entertainment gap we may or may not have left, you should go see The Cabin in the Woods. It was awesome. I wrote this review of it over on my other blog.

Or you could read this old story I wrote when I had little conception of how to make things good: Dan and the Can: Flush of Fate. Don’t judge me.

Or, if you have an iPhone or iPod touch, you could download Geomon, the video game Sam helps create. It’s like Pokemon, only the creatures you see around you are based on your actual location and the weather and the time of day!

Ok, hopefully that will tide you over. I’m realizing now that instead of giving you an entertaining post, I just advertised a bunch of stuff. Oops!

To make up for it, here’s a picture of a velociraptor trying his hardest to play a friendly game of soccer:

TLDR: Watch out for BIG things in the future.
