So it would seem jefbot’s enjoying himself at the beach party. Who’s “antisocial” now!?
Sad thing is, i can see myself doing that… went to beach last week, sat on beach in a pair of jeans sneakers and Tshirt and read Forgotten Realms >_>
sounds good to me, Kerosus. 🙂
That looks freaking awesome! xD
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS STRIP!! 😀
I’m gonna make this one my desktop background!
Oh, is it possible this one could end up on like a t-shirt or maybe larger resolution wallpapers? That would be AWESOME! 😉
glad you enjoyed it that much, m0nster! i’ll try and have a wallpaper up soon.
Oh wow! It’s so simple, but at the same time I am taking away so much from this strip. JB looks like he should have an entourage surrounding him, or at least a bodyguard. (Which I guess in this case is CF? 😛 ) CF is working his “Musashi/Mu Magic” with the ladies.. much like a dog might.. only it’s a super cute furry rodent. I love the people playing volleyball in the background! Totally love the naked feets again! Yet another awesome strip to blow me away with your artistic talent!
yep! more naked feets, Spanky! heheh. and the Cornfather’s definitely using Mu as his wingman – with much success, it seems. 🙂
Is,…is that a Vectrex in back? Wow…
you got it, MiddleMan! wow, i knew at least one of my readers would be able to ID the vectrex in jefbot’s stuff, but i didn’t think it would be in the first couple hours of the strip going live. good job! now, can you ID the overlay that’s on the screen?
if i could spend my days at the beach like jefbot does, i’d be there a lot more often, Hans. heheh. and i think you’re right about the explosion if cel should appear while jefbot’s in his oasis – and if not an explosion then at least a spilled martini and a shorted-out surge protector, perhaps. 🙂 oh, and was tempted to draw jefbot in goggles, but thought he’d be more likely to be sporting shades this time.
now THATS….a day at the beach…I’m very lloking forward to see if Cel shows up…the ensuing explosion of all that stuff around Jef when he sees her will make an F5 tornado look like a ceiling fan…but then maybe it’s just me…great work Jef
thanks, yeto! 😀
I love the Martini.
I also agree with Spanky about naked feets. Just looking at it makes one feel how relaxed Jefbot is. He coud stay at home with his equipment, but he wanted to relax. So even though he basicaly took his home enviroment with him, he came to beach and has a beach mod relax. Kudos.
If he wanted he could use his stuf to take party up a notch, music or gamer event or something… Hopefully he wont be selfish too much with entertainment.
Im worried about Cels reaction though, she allready thinks that Jefbot is perv and geek. What will come next? Will she think he is a freak, throw him into sea, unplug him or simply join the gamer fest?
Truly an oasis of Jefbotism on the beach and I love it.
that’s right, Maryz! he may not be shirtless and in a bathing suit, but jefbot airing his feet out show he still knows how to kick it on the beach. 😉 and check out the next strip if you’re interested in jefbot taking it up a notch – your comment will seem quite prescient then. and as far as cel’s reaction goes: she might just do all of the above! or… is it possible she might think he’s cool and they end up with a love connection? you’ll have to wait and see. heheh.
It reminds me of my past beach vacations, only with more awesome. Mom loves the beach, so she used to drag me there all the time. I’d just sit with a beach towel over my head and play whatever version of the gameboy was hot that year. She has pictures…
Love the detail btw
thanks, Maruul! glad you could relate to jefbot’s idea of a fun day at the beach.
you have pictures of yourself in your own oasis? cool! i should start collecting pictures of readers playing videogames on the beach. might be kinda fun to post.
Is it just me, or with the sunglasses on, does Jefbot kinda look like 2D from the Gorillaz?
i’m a big fan of Jamie Hewlett, Driftertank, so i’m flattered you see a a similarity in our styles. loved Tank Girl and of course Gorillaz. awesome stuff. i aspire to be that good. 🙂
Is that an artificial sunlamp plugged into ‘bot’s powerstrip?!
Oh, and nice choice of drink — good ol’ dirty martnini!
actually, it’s just a fan, Stan, but the idea of jefbot blocking the real sun only to plug in an artifical sunlamp is hilarious!
Hey jefbot just started reading your webcomics and they are hilarious man. Keep up the good work.
thanks for checking out my strip, Dan! hope you stick around for more JEFbot adventures. 🙂
Um…Dude…Are you getting away from it all or taking it with you?
heheh. good question, reynard61. what do you think?
Amazing detail, Jefbot!!! Excellent!
glad you think so, Mary. thanks!
Hahaha. Id have my sunglasses and my DS but not the rest. Or usually, Id switch out the electronics for a big pile of books
debated about whether or not to draw jefbot playing with his PSP or DS, DJ, but since i’ve been playing Crisis Core lately, I went PSP in this one. i’m down with you on the books, though: easier maintenance, and far less power needed to use ’em. 🙂
Hey Jeff, are you getting just tons of Russian spam like I am?
yeah, luckily my spam filter has been catching most of it lately. i think that Girls With Slingshots guest strip i did is drawing it here, since it seems to get attached to that post, mostly.
Absolutely love it xD
thanks for the love, Nat!
This would make the beach a lot more fun. I don’t understand how laying in the sun getting burnt is a good time.
it would be nice, albeit not very safe, for the city to install electrical outlets around the beach. don’t you think, Anonymouse? 😉
Why isn’t the PSP connected to a flat screen????
jefbot only has a psp 1000 it seems, The Doctor, which has no tv out port. 🙁
One word: BBBBBRRRRRIIIIIILLLLLLIIIIIAAAAANNNNNTTTTT followed by!!!!!!!!!!
This is so well done, I actually feel like I’m on the beach when I look at it. The beach juxtaposed with the technology is pitch perfect. Way to knock it out of the park, man! Way. To. Go.
hey, thanks, MC!!! your comments always hit my ego in a good place. 🙂
Fantastic! LOL! Love it!
haven’t seen you in a while, #1JF! glad you’re still around and reading, and happy you LOL’d! 😀
If the sand man, or posidan, or some other thing thats like a god to the beach, they would all be saying, I sence a disturbance in the beach force.
ha! it’s true, Zach. and then they’d probably send a tidal wave to wash jefbot and his tech away as punishment for his insolence.
Wow, that is an awesome image. Definitely feel the heat, and the awkward.
Did you know it’s against the law to drink booze on United States beaches? It’s true! However, if you go out into the deeper water it’s completely legal to stand -or float- around and drink to your hearts content, BUT if “they” catch you drunk (over the legal limit) on the beach you’ll be arrested and detained.
The more you know.
thanks, Foxmouse! and thanks for the drinking tip, too. i’ll be sure and only drink while i’m floating in the ocean, far away from the shore from now on. but if something tragic happens, it’s on you. 😉
The only thing I can say is…. OUTSTANDING! omg so funny… Your setup at the beach is better than mine at home!!! Love it!
heheh. thanks, Funnyshaffer.
So beyond WRONG! Being a California boy myself I just can’t fathom bringing technology to the beach. It’s just not right by any means. I miss real beaches….Washington’s are just too rocky and the Puget Sound is not the Ocean, no matter what anyone tries to tell me.
ha! sorry to hear about your rocky beaches, Ploute. sounds like some gaming gear might make them a bit more pleasurable…? 😉
I second monster’s request: Wallpaper. Now. Please. :))
working on it, Zim! thanks!
you are a sad, lonely man. any time i see a hot black woman in a bikini, i’m like the cornfather. makin’ sand tracks her way!
have you forgotten that the only reason jefbot’s there is to hang out with cel, skinny? might not be a good strategy for him to be acting-the-pimp when she shows up. 🙂
Oh jefbot, there are lovely ladies in bikinis around you! Listen to your readers and get your skinny pale ass up off that uber-geek-beach-chair. Naked feets and martini or no, you’re making the Cornfather look bad.
don’t listen to skinny, Jax – jefbot isn’t a playa, and actually wants to make a good impression on cel when she shows up. also: the strip wouldn’t be funny if jefbot didn’t choose his tech over the many distractions (sun, beach, ladies, ocean, volleyball) around him! plus, jefbot thinks making the Cornfather look bad is hilarious. 😉
Awwww. Musashi is all crossed paws and all! Is soooo cute!!
Musashi and Michael make a good team. Poor jef, Michael certainly stole the love of his pet XD
I love the color, perspective and the overall “feel” of this gorgeous picture. Darnit! I can almost smell the salt water!
No, wait! I do smell… aw, of course. Silly me. keep forgeting that I live in Puerto Rico and there’s beach practically all around us *LOL*
Hmmmm… although… hey jef, not to be a “ungrateful critic”, but… shouldn’t you be covered in the shadow made by the giant umbrella? Just asking.
someday, jefbot will have his revenge on the Cornfather for stealing Musashi, Sonitan. mark my words. heheh. and glad you’re smelling the strip, even if the smells are all around you! 🙂 also, you’re totally right about the shadow – i definitely need to make jefbot darker under that umbrella. i’ll try to fix that next time i have a spare moment!
That’s like my ultimate dream…if I could figure out how to keep the sand out of the electronics I would live like that 😛
true dat, Eptha. in real life you might have to play everything through ziploc bags, or maybe plastic wrap would work. 🙂
That Shit is SO my PSP wallpaper
great idea, CheddarMan! when i make the computer wallpapers, i’ll hafta include one for PSPs. 😀
Well done, I agree.
Now just stay away from the poetry and you’re good.
thanks, Drakey! watch out: i think i might feel a sonnet coming on… 😉
Thats just how a perfect day should look like! (Beside that weather never looks so great in northern germany BUT i would never dare to go outside with a peak of sunlight distracting me from mah very favour 😀 )
although i do enjoy all the sunshine out here in southern california, i wouldn’t mind experiencing the weather in northern germany for a couple’a days, Ion. man, i gotta visit Germany, soon. thanks for the comment!
I’m with you all the way on this one dude, women, pets even the sun will leave you. Electronics are forever! Just imagine what would happen if you took a multimeter and a soldering iron to fix your love life. I’d probably switch the martini for a nice cold beer, or at a stretch a mojito, but whatever floats your boat. Oh yeah, i hope that 4-gang extension is surge protected, peace!
i love the thought of fixing relationships with a soldering iron, Deaconvorbis! would make things so much easier. heheh. and yep, definitely surge protected since you never know when some careless partier is gonna spill their beer on your equipment. 🙂
Uhm, I actually did that camping once…right down to the power strip. But even I take a few less items to the beach. Tailgating gets interesting, though. Often we don’t make it into the game..
glad we’re on the same wavelength, SRQRocky! i just went camping a couple months ago and had almost more equipment than you see here, since i not only took my PSP, DS and laptop along, but my cintiq to do the strip, too. 🙂
careful lady……..Musashi bites………
it’s true. he punches and scratches, too. 🙂
Hey, at least Jefbot has a martini–albeit, a green martini–at his side while he plays his PSP.
Awesome work as usual, Jeff!
yep! nothin’ like playing RPGs and Lumines while drinking, JM!
Awesome, as usual.
Maybe it sounded a little bit depressing when I said the weather in northern germany isn’t that sunny, tho did I meantioned that every day the sun takes a little peak everyone is barely naked out on the streets? YES, so nearly naked, even(or especially) women ._. o_o O_O, sweet jesus, another reason I never leave my cave!
whoa! okay, sounds like you have southern california beat there, Ion. that might prove too distracting for even jefbot to ignore. 😀
I think this one should be made into a t-shirt.
if it didn’t have so many colors on it, i’d totally do that, Lor. wallpaper of the image will be up soon, though!
I love this idea. The only way to make it better would be a frozen drink machine of some kind on standby.
Simply awesome… some day I wish to do that myself!
The only real question is how did he get his hands on a Vectrex?
And why would he take it to a beach?!?!?!
This looks like my life in a single comic strip. Here in Hawaii, the only condition I go to the beach on is if I can bring various gaming consoles and my iPod. Yay for antisocial beachgoers…..
Dude! Epic! So going on my computer!
LOL a Vectrex!!! I love jokes about things almost no one remembers. Love your site! keep up the good work!
he’s in his game chamber
