Lingering questions, and lingering fatigue. February 22, 2013 Posted by Mookie
My apologies to the "overnight update crowd" for the somewhat late posting of today's strip. The Enslaved concert, coupled with the lingering fatigue of Katsucon and the Gojira concert, left me more than a little drained. But the comic went up and we're left with a lingering question for the weekend...

Does Nimmel truly know the answer to his own question? And what will he choose to do once it's answered? Find out next week!

Last year, when Enslaved was in the New England area, they put on an amazing show and the crowd was enthusiastic without being violent. I was able to get close to the stage and really enjoy one of my favorite bands surrounded by a relatively mellow crowd.

Yesterday was a different story. The band's equipment arrived late to the show, cutting their set short. The crowd was composed primarily of drunk jerks who were more concerned with beating people up than enjoying the concert. I got kicked in the face by three crowd surfers and someone threw a full can of beer at the back of my head.

On the bright side, Enslaved put on another amazing show and I got pushed so close to the stage that I was able to shake hands with three of the band members after the show was over.

I think I'm done with concerts for a little while. They're fun, but I'm beat.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on, and have a nice weekend!
