Yes, but what?

candied-sardines answered: ASK DIVISIVE QUESTIONS. MAKE THE PEASANTS ARGUE. Also find someone to maybe fill out Pilot’s wiki. I’d like to but a poet I am not.

Hmmmm…. Yes, thank you. I can hopefully think something up.

I have thought of filling the rest of it out myself. However, I haven’t really gotten around to do it :/

Anyway, just write to me if you guys are interested in writing for the wiki page. I am the site moderator, so I can insert the text for you.

"Stay back or I will give you a very bad haircut" might be the best threat I have ever heard.

I have to start using it.

Well it looks like Pilot has an unearthly fear of scissors and hair dressers.

Maybe there’s a reason for that? Maybe he had an accident related to haircuts, just like he had one with pineapples. Or maybe it was just his regular nonsense idk

It was recently explained in an other journal entry.

"DEPRIVED OF BREAKFAST I DECIDED TO SEEK VENGEANCE AND ASKED MY RIGHT EYE FOR HELP.
IT IS NOT OFTEN THAT I DO SUCH, BECAUSE THE EYE DOESN’T ALWAYS COOPERATE AND SOMETIMES LEADS ME ASTRAY INTO A PLACE THAT KEEPS TRYING TO GIVE ME A HAIRCUT: [picture]

I HATE HAIRCUTS AND PLACES THAT PROVIDE SUCH, WITH OCEANIC PASSION, BECAUSE OF FOLLOWING REASONS:
1)THE MANY ARMED LADY ALWAYS TRIES TO TALK TO ME ABOUT THE WEATHER AND I AM IN NO MOOD OF COMMUNICATION WHEN MY EXTERNALS ARE BEING SLICED.
2)I DON’T APPROVE OF LOOSING MY EXPENSIVE APPENDAGES TO SHARP BLADES. LAST TIME I ALMOST LOST MY EAR TO THE HAIR DISPOSAL CHUTE.
3)I CAN NEVER DECIDE ON WHAT HAIR STYLE I WANT. NOT EVEN THE POSTERS HELP, THEY JUST LOOK AT ME JUDGINGLY WITH THEIR PRETTY MODELY FACES.
4)ISSUE 3 CAN BE RESOLVED IF HAIRCUTTING PLACES WOULD POSESS MORE ARTISTIC FLAIR. TO ELABORATE: THEY SHOULD PROVIDE PATRONS WITH PORTRAITS OF HOW THEIR FACES WOULD LOOK WITH VARIOUS HAIRCUTS INSTEAD OF ASKING “HOW SHORT U WANT THIS?”
5)WHAT KIND OF LENGTH IS “FINGER-LENGTH” EXACTLY? IS THAT LENGTH OF MY FINGERS? OR THE FINGERS OF THE HAIR-CUTTER? FINGER LENGTH IS OF GREAT VARIETY, YOU KNOW!”

Huzzah! Vit posted my illustration for 16b! Made this back in august, but we couldn’t figure out a journal/dialogue for it. YAY planning! He made some touch ups with color and added mist behind them.

CAPTAIN’S LOGE, ENTRY 16B TODAY I WAS GOING TO TAKE SNIPPY TO THE CANDY MOUNTAIN THAT I DISCOVERED HIDDEN IN A FERTILE NON-RADIOACTIVE VALLEY BETWEEN TWO COLLAPSED MALLS, BUT HE REFUSED. OH WELL. I GUESS I’LL HAVE A FANCY FEAST WITH PILOT INSTEAD. I’M SURE PILOT WILL APPRECIATE FINE DINING WHILE MR SNIPPY CAN LEARN TO BE LESS NEGATORY. MAYBE WE’LL BRING HIM A PIECE OF GARLICKY BREAD TO SNACKLE ON IF HE BEHAVES.

Particularly, Issue 2, which puts a completely new spin on Captain’s personality.

From my previous post, here are the changes I’m talking about:

ISSUE 2

STEVE HAS BEEN FOUND GUILTY OF THE HIGHEST FORM OF LUNAR TREASON, DENIALISM OF LUNAR NON-LANDING, A LANDING WHICH IN FACT DID NOT OCCUR ANYWERE NEAR THE YEAR OF JULY OF 1969 AS STEVE DID SO WRONGLY CLAIM.

FOR THIS DENIALISM STEVE HAS BEEN PUT TO DEATH BY THE EXISTENTIAL DOOR.

 is now

STEVE HAS BEEN FOUND GUILTY OF THE HIGHEST FORM OF LUNAR TREASON, SPEAKING OUT LOUD OF THE MOON-RELATED ACTIVITIES. SUCH PUBLIC SPEECHES AND WONDERINGS ARE MOST PROHIBITED.

FOR THIS PUBLICATION STEVE HAS BEEN PUT TO DEATH BY THE EXISTENTIAL DOOR.

This is the first journal we get from Captain’s perspective and it alters their character dramatically. For those of us who’ve been following the comic for months/years, our introduction to Captain was to a conspiracy theorist so crazed that not only did they fully believe that the moon landings never happened, but they also had violent conversations with inanimate objects on the matter.

The Captain we have now is someone who inhabits a world that was significantly different to ours before it ended, where freedom of speech was suppressed on historical matters. Captain is still seemingly a violent person who enacts conversations with inanimate objects, but they’re no longer a conspiracy theorist, but a person defending a repressive rule that no longer matters after the end of the world.

Before the end, we can speculate before we start reading the rest of RA, Captain wasn’t a loony who spent their days ranting against the government, but was an extension of the government’s might, ready to stomp down on thoughtcrimes. This Captain is far more dangerous than we older readers initially believed, just as Pilot is being shown to be far more dangerous to Snippy at an earlier stage in all the new journals from his perspective.

Changes to RA journals 0-30

dillyfirestarter:

A while ago, I pasted all the RA journals into a GDoc so I could reread them quickly without flicking through the website. It also means I’ve spotted some changes to the journals.

FIRST AND BEST CHANGE: Heading each journal

Alex and Captain don’t seem to have these as far as I can see.

BLARG THEY'RE EATING MY MEMORIES OF CHILDHOOD

This one is from 68, while Snippy’s memories are being poked by Cancer.

AND NOT ONLY THAT, there is binary in the background of their headers.

Pilot’s 0110010101110010011100100110111101110010 means “error”

and Snippy’s 0100111001001111 means, of course, “NO”. In all caps.
