Indulging in blackjack at GaiaOnline is one of those things I don't do often, but end up paying for in sleep. I had accumulated a good 700 tokens and ended up blasting through them to get to the robot dealer. I have no clue if there's any character after him or any incentive to keep playing beyond it, but I still don't have enough tickets to get that darned plumeria headpiece. (I plan to get all the "hawaiian" wear goods eventually. I have the dry grass skirt, coconut bra, flower wrist bands, and a single flower and the red flower haku. I have yet to get the fresh grass skirt and flower anklets - they don't really seem to be in demand, so I'll just leave those to chance.)
Despite what KS says, I don't really "play" much on Gaia. I'm usually more enthralled in dressing up my character in whatever odd-matched goods I have and participate in the quests to get some random item to add to my collection. But- I guess whatever the matter, he always sees me online and seeing is believing. ^^;
See our nemu*nemu blog Monday morning for more info on this guy~
KS and I were contacted by Digital Strips' Brigid Alverson this weekend for a quick interview regarding our comic.

Brigid's been really instrumental in helping us spread the word about our comic, being a reader herself. ^_^ She had helped us out earlier with her column on Comixpedia.com, "Comix Talk".

In the meanwhile, a nifty plug:
This is a really cool interactive site that was a jury recommendation from the 11th Annual Japan Media Arts festival. When you click the link above, you'll see why. It's visually stimulating and literally a game within itself. I really dig the art style and how things play out.
It is in both English and Japanese, but I haven't gotten very far. I managed to get most of the puzzles solved in the underground mine shaft - albeit in the WRONG ORDER, and got the farting baby machine to stop. If anyone else wants to partake in the cool madness of it all, please give me some sort of hint as to how to solve some of the puzzles! It's bound to keep you occupied for at least an hour.
I hope to get back to exploring this site later~ Weekends are just too short.
