Sometimes even "Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Lerft-Right-A-B-B-A-Select-Start" isn't enough:

Disney may yet have somthing to learn from Nintendo (hakuna matata, right?).

The world? I can barely take King Hippo, Soda-pop-insky or the Sandman!

One of the chief sources of pride in my life is that I can beat Sodapopinsky almost every time. Sandman I'm more like 50/50. Then Macho Man destroys me every time. I knocked him down once, though. The key thing with the Bald Bulls when they do the bull charge thing is to wait just a second longer than you think you should before punching. It took me several years to learn this.

But if you want a neat little metaphor for our battle with the Law, use the cheat to get straight to Tyson/ Mr. Dream. "I fought the Law, and the Law won".

Is Tom Brokaw a character in this game? I forget...

Joshua Corrigan said...

Dude, Jesus is my game genie. Before him I wore my thumbs out trying to earn my own righteous victory.

To me, Don Flamenco stands for the law as he taunts you over and over while blocking your every punch!

Why did I never learn!

(please forgive my theological "subject-object" error with the game genie comment...I repent in dust and ashes)

For those of you who haven't gone to the site with the comics, you should. Some of them are really good.

Hey John, where was the arcade you used to go to in Chinatown? Do you have a game of choice? Do they have Dance Dance Revolution?

John Zahl said...

It was at the very bottom of Mott and Bowery. My game of choice was indeed Dance Dance Revolution (though with me only watching, not playing). I used to love to watch the teen asian girl dance battles, which were especially cut-throat. JZ

On a more serious note, this little comic has been ministering to me big-time over the last few days. I can't shake the image of the guy just getting completely destroyed by the World, the World he has managed to convince himself he is "ready" to take on.

The last few days have felt precisely like this for me. 1. "I can do it! I'm finally figuring out how to achieve what I want to achieve!"
2. "BAM!!!"
3. [down for the count]

So thanks for the post, JZ. There's a darkness to it, a tragedy, and a truth, that I can't shake this week.
