Good morning good morning good morning, it's another lovely day! To those who are still with me on telethon week, let the fun begin!

Panel one: Now the fun begins. Is this suppose to appear on tv? Or is just a stage show? I don't remember anyone saying but either way you'd think April would do something different with her hair. Oh wait... no. I forgot. One of the rules in Foob is short hair or hair up=good girl Long hair down = bad girl.

Panel two: THEY'RE ON AFTER REBECCA??? THEY'RE DOOMED! April doesn't look like she's freaking out yet but I'm guessing that'll be tomorrow's strip. Meanwhile I'm not sure if the stage manager is blind or stoned but either way the eyes closed in both panels is kinda creeping me out. I also don't like how April's bangs are covering her eyes. If this were a manga, that might note that the character is hiding a dark secret or is upset but is hiding it from the other characters. I'd love to believe that April has something up her sleeve but it's probably just sloppy artwork.

Panel three: Fluid? Maybe the guy is stoned. Anyways, I'm not in the music business so maybe someone with experience in the field can clue me in but I'd think that they'd have a pretty solid schedule to keep.

Panel's four and five: A bathroom joke and a pun all in one! The pun is forced as usual. Unless "fluid" is apart of some stupid in joke that we're not privvy too, in which case we should have heard it before. The artwork in the last panel is especially terrible. No one runs like that. April's legs are at an odd angle and Eva looks like she's marching. My guess is tomorrow we'll see April going emo over having to go on after Rebecca while Eva calls her spoiled again. Can't wait.

Hooray! LiveJournal is back! It looked as if I was going to have to post my snarks tomorrow morning. I'm also glad I already wrote up my thoughts in notepad otherwise this post would be later, anyways enough chatter.

Panel one: I love how, whenever anything is described as really good in this strip it's "amazing". One month to go until the big freeze and now you establish that Gerald is a great drummer? This band has been together for, what? six years now? I love how they tell and never show anything anymore. Btw, Apes, I don't care how good a drummer is, he can't make up for the rest of the band. Whether or not you want to admit it, they have talent too!

Panel two: another long shot. I'm getting a vague sense of loneliness from April.

Panel three and four: April, you spent years hating Becky because she became famous, I don't believe for a second that you suddenly switched sides. You'd be jealous, even if you don't really want to be famous. I really wish I could see her face in panel three. If she looked like she was hiding hurt, I'd buy it. And one more thing, does Eva care about April? Or just the band?

Panel five: Oooh, could this be the end of April 'n Gerald 4-ever? Gods I hope so! I never liked Gerald. He's insensitive and oblivious to those around him. On the other hand, I really don't want them to break up without April realizing what a selfish jerk he is. Because that means there's a good chance they'll get back together just like Liz and Anthony, only via future retcons. *barf*

Overall the Artwork isn't too bad but I really don't like all the long shots we've been seeing since the week began. I'm getting a sense of loneliness. It looks like the telethon is going to wrap up April's part in foob forever. I don't want that. I want to see her since I think she's one of the more interesting characters left. However, it might be a good thing since it leaves the hope that her character will remain unassassinated.
