Haha as soon as I saw the first panel I knew that the joke would be based around what's being parodied. Bill Watterson would be pleased.

Also being the metal head that I am, not all metal has to be brutal. I don't actually like ridiculously brutal metal... just metal that interests me or metal that is a bit more expressive and interesting.

Instead of listening to fat hairy guy growling and screaming about how some guys was killed with harpoons and battering rams coupled with mindless guitars that are so distorted and tuned so low that its basically a distorted electric bass. Bah you guys don't care anyways but here I am continually rambling.

So Gouda is really Bling's imaginary friend who's really a big stuffed animal?......I knew it.

I still don't see how you managed to compare Cynic with Linkin Park. There was absolutely no rapping going on during that song and the music is quite different from Linkin Park, which is a band I truly hate for even attempting to fuse rap with metal. Guess people have different ears I guess. So the conclusion, Linkin Park =/= Cynic. Linkin Park sucks ass, Cynic on the other hand is a great band compared to those posers.

So the joke is that you're aspiring to be original, while using a gimmick from Calvin & Hobbes? But Watterson uses the action of the wagon as an allegory for the discussion, whereas here it's just kind of there while they're talking.

So I guess that storyline is over. What was the point? You didn't go anywhere with it. You set up something with the introduction of this Allison character, but then that disappeared. You set something up with Ethan going downtown and encountering "posers", but then he's just hanging out doing nothing in the next strip. And to resolve the situation as quickly as possible, you threw in a deus ex machina with the science lab. You went to the trouble of establishing that they live in different parts of the country, and now they're just hanging out together again, like none of that was true. So again, what was the point of that story arc?
