@KenMueller What's funny is that I JUST put MWH back on my iPod after having all the albums off for the past year or so.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Weekend Music Game: What’s in Your Ears?
1. Ben Folds Five - Battle of Who Could Care LessWhenever I hear songs from this album (Whatever & Ever Amen), it reminds me of my first date with my wife. We listened to the whole album on the way back from Philadelphia.
2. Empty Room - Arcade FireArcade Fire reminds me of my time working for Senorita Burrita the first 3 years of its opening in downtown Lancaster. A coworker turned me onto them, and they had to grow on me over a long period of time, but are now one of my favorite bands.
3. Metric - Live it Out
4. Spoon - You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb
5. Muse - Apocalypse PleaseThis is the first song off the first album I heard by Muse. What's funny is, at the time, I thought they were a major Radiohead rip-off. But as this album grew on me, and I realized how powerfully rocking this band was, my love for Muse eclipsed my enjoyment of Radiohead 10 times over. Ever since getting into Muse, I have been very "meh" about Radiohead. The best way to describe my opinion of Muse, is that they are what Radiohead could have been, if they rocked way more and were weird way less.
6. Jeremy Enigk - Late of Camera
7. Nada Surf - Blizzard of '77
8. Movies With Heroes - The Last Shall Be First
9. The Shins - Mine's Not a High Horse
10. Further Seems Forever - Snowbirds and Townies

When I saw this post Retweeted by a friend of mine, I had to check it out. I love my WACOM Intuos4 Medium. Up until this year, I used a Wacom Intuos3 6x11 tablet for work, and started bringing it home to translate my webcomic digitally, for inking and coloring it in Photoshop. I put some personal money aside and got the Intuos4 Medium this year for home (so I wouldn't have to bring home the work tablet anymore), and it rules. The pressure sensitivity is twice as much as my work Intuos3 (which when doing digital inking, makes my lines soooo much smoother), and I love that the pen stand also doubles as nib storage (different WACOM pen tips for the uninitiated). The surface of the WACOM Intuos4 Medium also has some "teeth" to it (i.e. it is not a smooth glassy surface), so it feels much more like drawing on paper than the Intuos3 does.
Up until this point, I have drawn my comic traditionally with pencils, then scanned it into Photoshop and did everything else digitally on my WACOM, but I am strongly considering going completely digital in the future and just doing everythng from start to finish with the WACOM. I just have to get over my fear of making the transition away from beloved pencil and paper. Anyway, thanks for letting my yammer on! Peace.
Oh, by the way, the work I do on that comic is at this link, for anyone interested in seeing what you can do digitally for inking and coloring cartoon strip work with a WACOM: http://ourobros.com
