named "Blockhams with Dicks"
WTF. just WTF.
Someone is taking Six Zero's comic strips and drawing something with a similar style...there's just one...addition..to the characters..
So glad I am not a mod for this board
Me too. I...
not gonna lie. I laughed
I may have chuckled.
Kids these days.......
need of a vacation. to...
from the looks of things he is a long way form that happening..
Mods are charging up their banhammer powers.
Where do we draw the line!? How far can the mods go and still respect free speech?!
Don't all the male Blockhams already have dicks?
^ that was epic win right there. rofl
I'm not seeing him
Brings a whole new meaning to 3rd and long
Awesome. How big are the dicks? Pretty big I hope.
I always had a funny feeling about you Mr. Rogers.
Is it an issue of size or quantity?
Someone should post all of the images here as damning evidence...
I wouldn't do that.
AHHHHH! Fuck Spiders.
I wish I hadn't looked back a second time
Scariest thing I've ever seen. Fucking A.
Do not read mgoblog in a crowded lecture hall. Just disrupted class with a mean guffaw
I was in shock when I clicked on "the blockhams are finally worth reading."
Hey, 8% of kids do it!
At least I would read that one, ammirite?
For the record
Blockhams with dicks >>>>>> =============D Blockhams
Are you being a major dickhead because you enjoy being a major dickhead, or just because you think the cool kids will like you better if you act like a major dickhead?
I'm no great fan of the Blockhams, but you won't find me ragging on the strip, because the artist makes it for free and shares it because he thinks some here might enjoy it. I can choose to simply not enjoy it without saying a fucking word, because the guy is trying to do me a favor which I happen to not want. Only dickheads spit on things offered freely and which can be refused without comment (and thus without harm on any side).
You made your point with your first comment and it was funny. Now it seems like you have an axe to grind.
what the hell, how did cartoon dicks turn everyone on the board into bloody savages?
You and I are on the same page and that page will never have Blockhams on it. I too remember a time when I could log on and not have some all caps garbage post in the diaries. Those were good days, fine people back then. Handshakes and smiles. "How's the wife and kids?" I would say. But not now. These days are much worse. A cloud of boring storylines and poorly drawn artwork hangs above us like the stink of a million dead kittens... in a receptacle of some sort... or not. The point is the Blockhams are terrible and the world is a porrer place for having them in it. I enjoy the BHams + D though. Not bad at all.
"The world is a poorer place" is just mean, and totally unnecessary to get your point across about your tastes on the comic strip. I haven't gotten to meet Six Zero in person but I've interacted many times with the guy, and each time has reinforced the fact that he is simply an incredibly nice person. I think you can tell this fact simply from how he has acted on this site, and that makes it all the crappier when you step over the line from criticism of his cartoon. You do have the right to not read it.
On the content, sigh, I am as disappoint as you. I've discussed the comic at length with artists and with comic authors and we are not alone in judging the characters unlikeable, the plots trite, and the jokes ranging from flat to terrible. To my tastes, the comic is crap. I've directed my complaints to Six and he's been deaf to them because that's not how he works--he creates this thing that he wants to and it's up readers if they want it.
There is a large segment of our readership that doesn't share my tastes. They like The Blockhams and consistently offer encouragement. Nobody gets hurt if that segment gets to have something they find hugely entertaining that some guy puts a lot of work into for his fans every week. Nobody gets hurt by one more Diary a week. I do keep an eye on it in case there's a good strip that comes along, and conversely in case he does something that would reflect badly on the site or the fanbase. That hasn't happened yet.
And it probably won't because Six is just a nice guy. He does a fantastic job on the shirts, everybody liked his interview things, and he's not out to hurt anybody, which is more than I can say for a lot of his detractors.
But "....terrible. To my tastes, the comic is crap." isn't?
Only if all negative crticism is inherently mean. I should think intent and sentiment and wording would play a role. There are plenty of folks around here who do think that way (e.g. those who think it's a personal attack on a player when Brian hands out UFR negatives) but by now I would hope they've all learned this blog doesn't cater to that way of thinking.
Is negative criticism that is mean, but "it's crap" is "constructive" or whatever.
In your example, if Brian says "the player is not good at tackling" that's criticism. If he says "the player is not good at tackling; he needs to read the play better" or "go for the wrap up instead of the big hit" that's constructive criticism. If he says "the player played like crap" that's probably mean, not constructive, though it could still be accurate. And if he just says "he's crap" , welllll....
Not that Brian does this, but I'm interested in where you think your statement falls in there. I don't really care if you harshly judge the strip; I'm just curious how you delineate someone else's statement from your own.
The whole sentence. "To my tastes" is a very important modifier.
I really want to see this.
I'm seriously disappointed that I haven't seen this, and my Google skills are failing me. Does someone have a link?
Also, Six Zero's lawyer should probably expect a phone call.
Thanks a bunch OP. I came on line and saw that thread but by the time I clicked it on it I was too late and it was already gone.
And I would be outraged if the person who did this made a new screen name and re-posted so others could see it. My anger would know no bounds if this travesity should somehow get reposted so people who say.....clicked on the thread too late.....were forced to read this filth.
Please don't do that whoever made this cartoon. I'm begging you..please DO NOT MAKE A NEW SCREEN NAME AND REPOST THIS SO OTHERS CAN SEE IT TOO.
That would be wrong.
Do NOT google "blockhams with sucks" and click on the 4th link (the msu one)
Dicks, even autocorrect is against it...
That's not trolling, that's hilarious.
EDIT: I found the site and that is indeed hilarious, even though a Sparty did it.
I feel like this is a big joke I am not in on
