To *ahem* “keep it real” I created most of this strip while listening to nerdcore hip hop, especially MC Frontalot‘s latest release, “Final Boss” and some tracks from Optimus Rhyme and MC Hawking. If you have trouble relating to a lot of the modern rap music out there, but like science fiction, videogames, robots and math, then give nerdcore a shot.
Note: Sorry if you came to the site and all you saw was this. A big “thanks” for all the awesome comments and emails sent my way while I’ve been fighting this cold. Definitely helped me get back to the drawing board.
