I can’t take a good Polaroid. That goth, undead picture of me in the last panel is, sadly, a real Polaroid from an audition. I’m not sure if it’s due to my bone structure or weird skin composition at the cellular level, but I always look like crap in Polaroids. And unfortunately, in commercial auditions it’s common for casting offices to take a Polaroid of you to stick with your headshot and resume. Sometimes all they want is the Polaroid. I dread those times.
Any other actors out there take crap Polaroids or is it just me?
Aahh the Polaroid picture a/k/a, The Great Equalizer! No one can escape it’s evil ability to make you look like sh*t. Hysterical strip, man. Keep em comin!
you look like michael jackson.
cornacchia: thanks, man. good to know i’m not the only target of their evil ways.
anonymous: see, this is why they need to ban polaroids.
OMG! LOVE IT! LOVE the title too!
We can all relate to the dreaded polarrhoid! How appropriate!
Thanks again for making me smile!
are you saying looking like michael jackson is bad? you people forget michael used to be the BADDEST – i bet you went to his concerts and dressed like him when you were a kid – and now you’ve abandoned him because of a couple alleged incidents! for shame!
You do outstanding work man! Awesome strip yet again. And don’t worry about the polaroid, not everyone can master that art… Then again, who cares?We will never be able to have a kickass blog like yours!
The “imagined” real picture of you in the 3rd panel made me laugh so hard, I almost peed a little. Almost.
laura: thanks! too bad there’s no preparation h for bad polarrhoids.
anonymous: i’m still a fan of his music (off the wall is the stuff), but seriously, the dude is a bit creepy looking these days.
funnyshaffer: thanks for posting, dude! and thanks for the kickass words about the site.
ha! mitch, it has now become my goal in life to make you pee all the way. thanks for the comment, chica.
I’m with Mitch.
That “imagined” you is way Fabio. 😉 Love it!
Keep ’em comin’. (And I’m happy to provide a Polaroid-free casting experience.)
thanks, bon! hopefully more casting offices will adopt your progressive stance on polaroids. heheh.
Just got back into town. Dude, I HATE the polaroids…I always look like a muppet.
It is so Fabio turns into Michael Jackson. But you don’t look like either one. Strange…
Heh heh. I wouldn’t worry about it though. Polaroid no longer exists as a product anymore (the company, Polaroid, officially decided to stop making the film early this year), so eventually the film supplies will dry up and the casting agents’ll have to switch to nice digital cameras like the rest of the world 😀
you’re pretty damn hot, even in a crappy polaroid…
Wow, you look a bit like “L” from “Death Note”…
This strip made me laugh. “What you don’t trust my headshot? It only cost me several hundred dollars. Wait, what that? No! Get the evil truth machine away from me! Get it away!!!” So yeah that was pretty much my reaction to polariods in my acting days. ; )
Yeah- I always look like a serial killer. I tend to smirk or scowl naturally, and my Photographer Mother trained me to ignore the camera… add to that a natural tendency to have dark circles around my eyes, and, well, yeah.
Wow, you too Mad Luc? Course I looked like that all the time at my last job too…. lol
well the good news is you can only buy polaroid film from one small club of poloroid fans who bought the old equipment from them
awesome comic!!!!!! good job on this!!!
