It's been a while since my last journal,but I just wanted to mention that the problems with the Fission Chicken site have been cleared up with a fresh installation of new blogware. That is all. Beep!
Health and website stuffI haven't commented on my post-operation health since May, so rather than keep you all in suspense, I'll just say that my health continues to be healthy. No wait, that's a tautology, what I mean is that I am well and doing fine... nothing to report, really... so instead I'll write about how my site at fissionchicken.com has gone wonky, or at least wonkier than usual; the comics show up, but the posts below are missing! The titles of the posts are there, but that's all. No Video Goodies, no comments, nothing. Maybe it'll clear up mysteriously by itself...
Every Day In Every Way...I am getting better and better. Went to the doctor yesterday (one of the doctors who had seen me in St. Michaels hospital)... he gave my heart and lungs a listen, checked blood pressure, looked over some of my veins, asked questions... everything is looking real good! (One big relief is that the swelling in my feet and lower legs went away; for a while there, they could get pretty painful whenever I stood up after reclining for any length of time. Also, the horrible-looking blisters on top of my feet have dried up. They were big, about four inches in diameter... they looked like jellyfish! Yech!) The huge purple areas on my legs (from the vein harvesting) have likewise faded, the surgery scars are healing nicely, and Ive lost some weight, too. Still taking the meds twice a day, and have added sessions on an electronic treadmillup to three sessions daily, now.
Ill really have to draw something up and post it soon, too!
Whatever Happened To J.P. Morgan?(WARNING: lengthy article.)
As the weeks have passed with no update to my site, some of you out there might be wondering what I have been doing with myself lately. Some among you might plug in some snarky guesses, but youd be wrong. I have been in the hospital for a quadruple bypass! Yow!
It happened on April 1; I was walking down to the Post Office to deliver some mail when a deep voice reverberated out of the sky, HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY, JOHN! And I fell over like a big sack of potatoes. Actually I dont recall a voice or collapsing or anything... closest thing I can remember is leaving the house. I come to in an ambulancethey had to shock me like nine times, because I was unresponsivewith people working on me and asking me if I was okay. (Apart from being semiconscious in an ambulance, I guessed I was.)
Bayshore Hospital checks me out; they say to get me up to St. Michaels in Newark, a hospital highly-rated for heart treatment. I get x-r

Please send note if interested. (The art-teest reserves right to not accept subjects he can't stand.) Thank you. Please resume looking at art.
More Flash StuffNo particular reason for this journal entryit's just that the previous one had been up almost a year now! I will say that I've begun the initial stages of a new Flash thing, a simple "trailer" for a Fission Chicken movie. (No, there's no movie, just makin' a trailer!) More later...
Fission Chicken Book Out!Ahh, here it is... yes, it's The Collected Fission Chicken, Vol. I, recounting the first adventures of the Chicken of Wrath!

Rotten ChipmunksI just thought I'd point out this great blog entry by Mark Mayerson on the new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie (and the Horton Hears a Who one, too). Amen, Mr. Mayerson... amen!!
Creepy CGI CrittersSpeaking of animated films (and we weren't) -- what is it with the seemingly endless parade of cruddy CGI funny-animal feature flicks? It's like all the movie studios were required by law to produce and release CGI-critter movies that are (1) obnoxious, (2) loud, and (3) replete with fart and crap gags. (Before this, of course, such films were allowed to be 2-D, i.e. "Home on the Range.")

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.
I was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.
Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality.
Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th
Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.

For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.

Please leave room for artistic interpretation, I won't take very strict commissions. (I specialize in pastel chubbies, so my artwork and colours will differ from the original character.)
