Okay, so now that Musashi has interfaced with the bird thing, it should be all smooth sailing from here, right?
Woww, this is getting very Matrix-y very quickly
there is no spoon, flame_fingers.
and check you out! you just nabbed the Shades of Firsting for the second time in a row, which means you’re starting to rack ’em up once again! wear them well: these can hack human and animal minds with just a glance:
Brilliant! I’ll use the SOF for good!
You hack that parrot Mu!
Ha! I think this is the fastest I’ve ever posted on a comic! Yay for serendipity and such!
i’m not so sure, f_f – you nabbed the top spot in under 3 minutes this time but i swear you’ve gotten it in under a minute! (i could be mistaken.) although since this one went up at a somewhat random time, your quick post is even more impressive. 🙂
Gah! Missed AGAIN! I SMITE THEE KNAVE! Oh well. I just have to keep trying. The hard part is that you aren’t consistent with your post-times Jeff. Unfortunately, I can’t stay awake til so early in the morning all the time, so I’m not holding out much hope.
ANYWAYS! Onto the real review (and enough of the whining). JB, don’t just watch what Mu is doing. KEEP AN EYE OUT! What do I have to do, make you a Robe of Eyes so you have all-around vision, like a beholder?
ya gotta be quick on the draw to beat flame_fingers to the Shades, KB! and the last couple strips have gone up pretty close to midnight (Pacific time), so i’m not sure what to tell you except keep trying!
and, YES: bot could totally use a Robe of Eyes! that would help him out a lot, actually. 🙂
As long as the interface doesn’t go in reverse.
true that, Insectoid.
Oh is Mu gonna give the parrot a reboot? :3
Gah anyone else remember that show? I’ve been watching a few episodes recently and this fits in oddly with it. xD
i remember Reboot, Foxmouse! lost track of it after the first season, but i liked it a lot. where’d you find it? is it on Netflix?
Yep! Been watching on Netflix. Looking at it now it is so horribly bad, but man it’s still super fun. xD
heh. now i’m afraid to check it out again. 😉
I hope that Mu is the Xs (in his eyes are an x x O ) if we were playing ticktac toe and he is converting the circle then we win right? :D…. oh and go jebot for finding an ally! probably
heheh. yes, let’s hope that isn’t a game of tic-tac-toe being played on mu’s eyes, HitD!
Well. DNA is data. With the proper evolutions, it should be possible to manipulate and alter it.
this is true, Anime fan. to what extent Mu’s able to manipulate that data remains to be seen.
I’ve got a bad feeling about this.
heh. since you’ve been familiar with this comic a long time now, i don’t blame you, TPC. 🙂
Smooth sailing from here? Sorry, I’ve seen/read too many stories involving computer knowledge/psychic interfacing to expect smooth sailing when this happens.
ha! i’m glad you didn’t fall for the “smooth sailing” bit, Rainey.
Awesome! As for bots ‘ick’ I totally agree that it is indeed disgusting to touch an unconsious, bigger-than-normal bird.
‘Cmon, hacking powers! I can’t shake the feeling that any moment now, one of the technimals will wake up and attack bot, and at the same time interrupt Mu’s attempt to hack their systems.
yeah, birds are kinda icky even at their best, DAS, and to touch a huge one (i’ve ridden an ostrich, so i speak from experience) is downright gross.
as for your prediction – we’ll find out soon!
RIDDEN AN OSTRICH?! Holy mother of birdies you can actually do that?
I have to write that down on my bucketlist 😀
it was a while ago and i was probably 30 pounds lighter, DAS! and it wasn’t a pleasant experience; i actually did it for a Japanese commercial and was in fear for my life the whole time i was on the giant birds! you can definitely believe they’re descendants of dinosaurs when you get that close. 😛
Umm…maybe I’m overanalyzing, but….sentient-being-hacking has never gone over too well in my experience (see: season 8 of Supernatural and…other things I can’t think of right now).
Of course, I guess it’s not so much “reprogramming” as “deprogramming.” I mean, surely that parrot wasn’t a murderous jerk in the first place…right?
Also, MAYBE I should be worried about Mu’s eyes having the ability to go pixelated, but at this point I’ma just let it slide…
man, i’ve been hearing a ton about Supernatural lately, JOE! a buddy of mine used to try to get me into it all the time but i resisted, but after the Phoenix Comicon, where i was barraged with nonstop talk of Supernatural, i might have to check it out!
as for whether the bird was a “murderous jerk” in the first place: probably not. but it’d be funny if it was! heheh.
and maybe you should be worried about Mu’s pixelated eyes! it’s at least concerning.
I highly recommend it…just…start at the beginning. The first five seasons have a very good arc. Then there’re two kinda “enh” seasons where I was sort of wishing for the show’s cancellation (I did manage to turn my wife into a fan during this period but…I wouldn’t recommend it). Now with the last season, it feels like the show’s reinvigorated itself…of course, they keep going back to the well and using angels as plot devices, which, if you’re anything like me, you’ll get pretty tired of…but there’s still tons to like about the show.
thanks for the recommendation, JOE! i’ve heard the same about the quality of the seasons after the first five. when i catch up on all the other shows i have in the queue (Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Sherlock, etc.) i’ll try and check it out.
Oh no! Mind hack. Be careful Mu!
“be careful” is a good rule when it comes to mind hacks, DJ!
Jefbot needs to keep an eye on Mu and make sure his eyes don’t start turning red! If so, he just might need to hack of Mu’s tendril thingies. That’s all he needs is for Mu to go over to the Dark Side, regardless of the cookie situation! But with any luck, instead the parrot thingy will start to turn from a bad glowy red to a good glowy green. 🙂 It’s nice that you’ve color coded good and bad for us. At least, I hope you have! We are assuming a lot here.
you’ve got it right, Shanna – “glowy green” = good and “glowy red” = baaad. i’ve always been a big fan of color and loved how it was used in movies like Star Wars and (of course) Tron, so i adopted that trope in JEFbot. as for Mu turning evil: *shudder* let’s hope that doesn’t happen!
Radar implant might help instead of a cloak of eyes… Just sayin’
if only bot and Mu had some implants to implant, JGT!
XXX INTERFACE JOINED.
What are you a Dalek?
Yeah, I’m also hoping this works in Mu’s favor, instead of the other way ’round. . .
me too, Sarah W! if it goes the other way, jefbot and Mu are in big troubs.
Wonder what Cel would do if she walked into this scene? Shoot ALL the technimals to save JB? Or maybe Mu’s already made contact with her and she’s waiting for him to get back and help take down the aliens? So many possibilities….
Oh, let’s be honest…I’m expecting Cel to show up on the scene by way of surfing the flaming remains of the enemy spaceship.
Just take a moment and picture that. It’s beautiful.
ahhh… that’s definitely a nice image, JOE. destruction and all. 🙂
let’s hope she wouldn’t shoot all the technimals, Maddgodd81 – jefbot might have a conniption fit if that happened! but you never know…
His eyes, they look really weird now.
