September 10, 2002 - I'll Show You Who's the Real Fucking CholoTwo things. Firstly, Friday's edition of Nothing Nice to Say features a joke about the song whence comes the name of this strip. The NN2S strip is in no way a reference to or acknowledgment of my meager online effort, but I still took it as the Universe telling me to e-mail Mr. Mitch and alert him to my presence. I also thought the strip was funny.
September 9, 2002 - The Lingering Stench of FailureAs I alluded to last week, SBA elections happened recently. Having learned nothing from my Student Advocate fiasco at the end of my Berkeley career, I ran for section 1/2 Representative on a very Squelch! Party-esque platform. My campaign posters, which I think are pretty neat, can be looked at by clicking here and here. A thinner, less hastily drawn version of the goat in the first poster will be appearing in strips eventually, and the picture of me dressed as Gabe from Penny Arcade on Halloween last year remains one of my favorite images of all time. My opponent was someone who not only ran a legitimate campaign but also actually wanted the position. Fortunately for everyone involved, unlike in my previous bid for public office, this time I didn't accidentally win. Congratulations to the new Section 1/2 Representative, whose name I will make it my business not to try and spell or pronounce.
On to this week's strip. Humor of this sort is arguably somewhat premature since at this point in the 1L experience I seem to be the only one in my class ballsy enough to actually surf the Internet during lecture, but the joke should still ring true to any non-1Ls who accidentally read it. I'll post a version of an actual personbehindmesucksass page in the days to come. For now, enjoy the smallness.
I've reached the point where law professors are making cameo appearances in my dreams. Last night one of my professors and I were making animated features using a process that inexplicably involved a mop. There remains little to be said.
Fuck this noise. I'm off to the beach!
