A powerful music exec is giving you life advice with his robe open. Make eye contact, be cool.

Big Gold looks pretty good with his hair down (And has a lot more attractive body than I thought...). Wonderful page as always! Ps, you're making it so hard for me not to ship Vinnie and Fridge.

I have got a feeling that Vinnie and Big Gold's paths may cross once again in the future. At least I hope so for Vinnie! That guy deserves some success. On a silly side note, you should have drawn a huge golden schlong on Big Gold, thereby, revealing the origin of his name!

Given Big Gold's copious amounts of money and eccentricity I wouldn't put it past him getting an expensive, gold, synth upgarde.
Christina 30th Aug 2015, 7:19 AM edit delete reply
It kills me that Gold didn't even bother to close his robe once it was on him. "Last time you'll get this view, boys!"

My thoughts exactly! Big G is just the personification of no fucks given. ^_^

Side view on this... magnificence?! *pout*
...and this is why I always buy seats in first few rows - center! ;P

On other note, glad this went smooth and the boys are ok ^^

Aww. Fridge's sad eyes upon realizing Vinnie won't be living as close after moving in with Galvin. :(
ChristinaSJ 30th Aug 2015, 1:44 PM edit delete reply
Aww what an awesome friend! Have been in a similar situation with my husband, who got an AMAZING job, while we travelled in Thailand...but living permanently in Thailand didnt work out for me, so for my sake he quit the best job he ever had and travelled with me back home to Europe.

Its a horrible situation to be in...both for Vinnie, having to take away his friend's dream and for Fridge having to choose between a prosperous future and his friend. I really hope they find another way to make it big with their music :)

Love prevails! I imagine even if it wasn't working out for the period of time it must have been an interesting experience in your life living there.
Liska 30th Aug 2015, 1:51 PM edit delete reply
Yay! Glad Fridge and Vinnie made it through, so to speak. They definitely did the right thing, and Fridge handled it very smartly. I don't think this is the last we're going to see if Big Gold, though!

There's still something ominous about Big G.'s handling of this, but I tend to think that about conglomerate types, period.

Fridge is just wonderful. My soul clapped when it seemingly resolved smoothly. We'll see, though...

Hard to tell if Big has a master plan, or is just a weirdo. I imagine Sybel does a lot behind the scenes to ensure his empire doesn't crumple.

So, I guess he's got a heart of gold after all.
meep 30th Aug 2015, 6:00 PM edit delete reply
Well if they weren't going to win the deal anyway then Gold doesn't loose anything, this way they keep good feelings and walk out strong rather than failures to forget.

Why am I getting the feeling Fridge hasn't been selling his best friend's treasured possesions?
Vinnie might be getting a gift at some point.

Or the buyer is closer to Vinnie than he thought!


Or /will be/ closer, should I say?

That's what I was thinking. Fridge loves music just as much and knows how important that record is, its even signed by the entire band! Fridge probably bought it. All he keeps saying is that it sold real fast...

Being as paranoid as crowwinters about conglomerate types, I fear the “signing over the rights to our tracks produced while using your credits” will miraculously shift to ‘the rights to our tracks -period-’

Fridge is cool. I see how he and Vinne are such friends.

BG was pretty classy about the whole deal.

I did snicker at all his 'coined phrases'. Great touch for defining his personality.

I enjoyed getting to see a character with an ego like his as fun and reasonable, and not the usual crazy over-blown rock-star stereotype.

BG (and Sybel) were definitely fun to write for.
Guest 31st Aug 2015, 3:37 PM edit delete reply
The real point of the trip was seeing him stand up.

Next: they find out BG's dealings with them were VERY profitable.

Sorry, but I'm already gonna marry Notos and Ger...I baked the cake and everything!

I'm sure Captain's told you the ongoing joke of how I'm stocking you two. If you ever want to see me, just look out your window. I'm the guy on the ladder.

I've just caught up. Love your comic and love the style. Sweet story too! I hope Vin and Fridge stay good friends; it kind of seemed like Fridge was hinting that he feels abandoned by Vinny moving up levels.

I just can't imagine the people allowing the government to be so intrusive to actually take away the literal meaning of "Free Speach".

Hey welcome aboard, glad you're digging it!

You'd be surprised with how much government (and generally, any entity in a position of power) can get away with if the change is gradual.
MoonByte 5th Sep 2015, 11:44 AM edit delete reply
Hm, feels kinda bittersweet in the last panel.
There's definitely a "I will miss you" and "Sorry to have ruined your dream" in the air.
But then again, it also works so well because Fridge and Vinnie are really besties.
josbell975 12th Oct 2015, 5:24 PM edit delete reply

Fridge's sad face about Vin Vin moving on up, right in the feels! But all are happy in the end so that's good.

I keep thinking Star Trek, how everything was done by Russians or Klingon's.

This is a great page. Great pacing and Mr Gold has quite a personality.
