Briefly, I'm Joe Marier, Mo's husband, and semi-official #1 fan of the Tangent Artists project.

I like oatmeal with raisins, brown sugar, and cinnamon. I used to like Cinnamon Toast Crunch the best, but it's just not as delicious as it was when I ate more refined flour than I do now.

I work in HR, and as a musician. I'm interested in all kinds of things! That I will avoid talking about, for now!

~What do you do? Entirely too much. Very Happy I'm a web developer and IT specialist by profession, now.

~Interests: Doodling, costuming, random internet surfing...

~What kind of Comics do you like?: Superhero comics, silly comics, and random weird introspective stuff like some of Vertigo's work.

~What kind of Websites do you like? Well-designed ones!

~How were you introduced to TA? I used to work with you jokers before I had to regretfully retire due to time constraints and too many other obligations. I'm really excited to see how far you guys have taken this once-humble little project, though. Things are looking great!

~What's your favorite breakfast cereal? Honey nut cheerios.

Okay, hi. I wasn't sure if I was suppose to start my own introduction thread or just post in here. I shall post in here because I don't feel quite epic enough to start an entire thread all about me. Hi, my name is Laura.

~What do you do? I'm a part time student and barista
~Interests: I like to read, write and draw. I cycle between creative projects but my most long term project at the moment is the webcomic Sidekick Girl (I am the artist/inker and co-writer).
~What kind of Comics do you like?: I tend towards superhero comics, as X-Men pretty much helped me survive both gradeschool and high school. I do have some fantasy comic leanings as well.
~What kind of Websites do you like? nerd humor sites, webcomics, others.
~How were you introduced to TA? through a link on the Sidekick Girl forum
~What's your favorite breakfast cereal? I haven't actually eaten cereal in years, but I think I use to like Fruit Loops the most.

Well, welcome aboard, Laura!
We extend a hearty handshake to you while we regale you with Queen songs! And it's alright if you don't eat cereal as long as you eat breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day <---mom moment

QUESTION: Are we nerd humour? I've always wondered.

Greetings, this...Is a bit awkward since I'm not an artist. But I found out about these comics at Nekocon and I just felt like I should...Erm..."Meet" the artists responsible for such awesome comics. Anyways, just call me Chrono. Currently I'm sick, so I can't get to a computer (posting from my Ipod >.>). So I will do the full introduction later.

Wow that was wordy. ._.

Welcome aboard, Chronos! We apologize for not getting right back to you. We were super happy to see so many cool people at Neko! I hope you're feeling better by now.

I personally like sick days since its the only chance I get to read webcomics. *L*

You don't eat breakfast? I remember the days when it was all oatmeal cream pies for breakfast.

Glad to know you! We're currently in the process of cleaning everything up so pardon our dust as we get this place tidy.

Professionally writing? Haha, that's funny. Unfortunately I'm not nearly good enough for that...It's on par with a fanfic. >.>

Oh really? Does he ever get on here?

I drink soda in the morning. But I need my caffeine to remain un-impeded. Yum...Caffeine...

Hn, it's not that I don't want to, I just can't. I'm never hungry in the morning. Eating when i'm not hungry makes me feel sick to my stomach. e_e
So, do you like any anime?

@RE: FANGIRL
Yes, I get that too. There's many a day when I look the morning head on and think "the last thing I want to do is eat."

I DO love anime, but these days I can't afford to buy any new ones. I just watch the old series over and over again.

My absolute favorite series is "Maison Ikkoku" a Rumiko Takahashi series, which is kind of like an Anime version of "Friends." I own the complete manga.

I also like:
El Hazard
Slayers <-- huge influence on paper_tiger and myself
Fushigi Yuugi
Ranma 1/2
Azumanga Daioh
Blue Seed
and a bunch of others. My "newest" discoveries have been Fruits Basket and Ouran High.

Woah, I've never heard those, Except for Fruits Basket and Ouran High. I watch mainly the popular anime.
So...I know your the admin for the forums. Are you also one of the artists that make the comics?

No shame in that... that's where sis (monica/mama-sama), Christina and I first cut our writing teeth on the web, doing a Slayers fanfic together. Compared to what we're doing now, it was utter rot, but it was pretty good for young 'uns.

@Fangirl
Believe it or not, in 2001 those titles were pretty neat. I shudder to think that the new generation doesn't know Rumiko Takahashi tho. What are they teaching kids now a days??

Yeah, I have to buy anime. I don't have cable anymore. The joy of having bills and junk. *L* Okay that's a half-lie. Our Ink/Colour for "CRIT!" (Rachael) buys all the Anime and then lends it to me ^_^;;

I'm currently a writer (we have several) for all 3 series on Tangent Artists. In fact I liked writing for "CRIT!" so much I wrote a Fantasy Novel based on it called: Must Love Dragons

I'm also an artist: I do pencils/rendering for Skeleton Crew and Donuts. I also do Pencils for Crit!

*twirls hat*

Yup, me again! I'm assuming I met you at Neko, right? Glad to have you here!

@Fangirl - Well, they WERE popular, decades ago... *grumble grumble... why in my day... grumble*

These days I've been imbibing more manga than anime... Fairfax County has a fantastic manga assortment in their library, so I've read a score of stuff: Whistle, Death Note, Hikaru no Go, Shaman King, Full Metal Alchemist, One Piece, Inuyasha, Ouran High, School Rumble... etc.

The only mangas that have been so "must have" that I will openly go and buy them/have bought them are Love Hina, Negima, and Nana. I also devour Western comics too, especially Birds of Prey, Fables, & Ultimate Spiderman (and anything by Gail Simone, Paul Dini, Mark Waid, Jeph Loeb, Peter David, Brian K. Vaugn, Bill Willingham, or Grant Morrison... I've come to the conclusion that most superhero books are only as good as the people writing them.)

Another flaw with Anime is that I'm so busy nowadays that I can seldom just sit and watch ONE thing for any length of time... I'm forced to multitask, which means that anything with subtitles is impossible. (Which is why I just bought Cowboy Bebop, 'cause it has an awesome cast on the dub).

I was the guy in the blue hoodie and the gurren lagann flaming skull shirt, not that I expect you to have remembered every person you had talked to. XD

I love Cowboy Bebop, it's epic.

@Fangirl

Tiger boy makes a good point. These days most of the Tangent Artists only have time to watch telly WHILE we're doing other stuff like paperwork, grading, writing, and working on next week's comics so we can't read subtitles. This cuts in MAJORLY into our anime viewing and if we don't like the English cast, it generally means we don't watch it. It also means it can't be so absorbing that we don't get any work done.

I like watching CASTLE on Monday nights personally. It fulfills my geek needs while I sketch.
