The Great O&M ReReading Exploratory Committee

Postby Æron » Thu Dec 10, 2009 1:35 am

Remember when O&M was good, Raine Dog didn't exist, and DCS hadn't yet alienated most of his known fanbase? Have an affinity for nostalgia? Join us as we (maybe) re-read through O&M again together at a to be determined pace. Vote.

I'll do this. I was around for the 'glory days' where everyone liked DCS and everyone was excessively friendly to each other and people liked to roleplay their fursonas.

Actually let's stick to just the rereading, unless you really want me to break out my goth bunny fursona and changed my nick to Dragon Wing.
Who sleeps shall awake, greeting the shadows from the sun
Who sleeps shall awake, looking through the window of our lives
Waiting for the moment to arrive...
Show us the silence in the rise,
So that we may someday understand...

We're all done with the archives. Stop being a contrarian and conform.

I will do this if everyone agrees to revert to their old fursonas. And I'll go back to being less jaded.

yeah, we shouldn't be allowed to be as openly critical of the old strips are we are now.

Would I have to go back to being innocent and unaware? :huh:

We need Simon to do some updates, then completely not bother with them.

When I first discovered Ozy and Millie, I found a lot of it really funny. Some strips stand out to me because I remember my reaction when I read it back in 2003. I don't know how fast I went through the archives but when I finished I thought it was one of the best comics I'd read. It hasn't aged well personally. Looking back at the strips, the memories are there but they don't keep me laughing in the way some comics I've read dozens of times and for far longer than I've read Ozy and Millie.

I haven't actually read O&M in its entirety, just a few strips here and there, and the final arcs (graduation party and the wedding). I'm interested in doing an archive run, but it's pretty imposing so I've been putting it off.

If there's a forum exploration committee (so to speak) to do so, though, I'd be spurred to finally get around to it. I'm all for it, whatever my opinion means.

It would be fun to talk about old posts. It would be interesting to see how people react to them so long after they originally came out
