Thursday's Gone With the Wind

Welcome folks. We've got some big news to share with you. Today is officially the final Thursday post we'll be writing here at A Beer for the Shower. From here on out we'll be posting only once a week, on Mondays. But don't be too sad, because our regular Monday posts are now going to be bigger and better than ever. In fact, we're giving the entire site a major overhaul and improving everything.


Without Thursday in the queue (which sneaks up wayyyy too quickly), Bryan will have more time to make the comics even better. And Brandon won't have to keep kidnapping vagrant crackheads off Colfax Ave. to do his share of the post writing. Sure, there's an endless supply, but like his dear old granny used to say, "It's all fun and games until somebody gets hepatitis."

So keep an eye out Monday morning for the newly designed layout and our sole post of the week. It's going to be about obese men and the women who lust after them uncontrollably. Or something like that. There will be beer, and you will not be sorry.

The following is 110% funnier when listening to this on repeat while reading...

We can rebuild them. We have the technology.




We can make them smarter.



Faster. Stronger.



Plus we can, like, give them lasers and stuff.


...And maybe boobs?



...No, too much. Way too much. But we can still rebuild them and make them, like, extra awesome and stuff.

Stay tuned for Monday.

Cheers and stay classy, folks!

  1. Awwww and here I thought it was going to be an exciting announcement for us, the audience, who voraciously await another post. I look forward to when this becomes a monthly then semi-annual blog. (In all seriousness, it's understandable, especially when I know this must take a massive crap-load of time to do especially when you want to focus on your paid writing gigs.)

    1. Wait till you see the new comics. Definitely worth the wait. And worry you not, we'll never give you the Hyperbole and a Half treatment, AKA I'll stop posting for 2 years, but then come back and post whenever I feel like it because I have a book coming out.

  2. Hoping to see the changes today, but I can wait! Impatiently...

    1. We just figured we should give people some advanced warning before they come here on Monday and absolutely everything is different. Because, you know...

  3. Good luck with the upgrade guys! Can't wait to see the end result. I can completely understand the switch to a once a week posting. I've been horrible lately with posting and reading... obviously.

    1. Well, with what we're doing, it'd be impossible to post twice a week. Unless, you know, we never wanted to have jobs or families or free time, etc.

      Delete
  4. Bah, I'd berate you guys, but I'd be somewhat of a hypocrite seeing as I host a bi-monthly/monthly/whenever blog. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the new format and even better comics. Can't wait til Monday (this coming Monday?).

    1. No, next NEXT Monday. Or maybe the Monday after that. We need a break first. From then, we'll be posting on every 3rd Monday of the month unless it's a month beginning in A, then we'll post on the 2nd Monday. Got it? Of course you do. Good.

      (Note: this is not true. Every Monday on the nose expect something awesome, starting this upcoming Monday)

  5. Awesome! Hey, I'm going to be in Denver this evening for the Bronco's game. Maybe we could have a beer afterwards? You can get my email address at my site. Look out Denver, here I come.

    4. So that's no on the beer? I was really looking forward to seeing your new boobs. Next time.

    1. Our Monday post will keep you so happy you'll want to get up every day of the week. The depressing, heart-crushing reality of life - begone!

    Looking forward to the new and improved ABFTS!

    1. If you ever want to scare us into posting bi-weekly again, just tell us that one day we could end up being Dan. We'll post three times a week! Four! Just make it stop, PLEASE!

    2. Don't fight it, it only makes it worse. The Danification process has already begun and it can't be undone.

  9. Once a week? Lazy bastards lol oops did I type that haha whatever works best is what one should do. Be fun to see the overhaul at your zoo

    Replies
    1. Hey now buddy, I know you can compile posts for months at a time (which I'm still very envious of) but it's damn hard to even put out a post bi-weekly if we want to do cool looking, original cartoons.

      What I'm saying is - the day we can outsource our cartoons to China for 10 cents on the comic is the day we happily post every single day.

      Delete
  10. Replies
    1. Thanks! We just hope people can embrace change and don't want to digitally torch us after seeing the new toons.

      Delete
  11. It'll be sad to see you guys around only once a week but I'm looking forward to the new direction and redesign. I had to cut back when I got busy and my guess is you guys are getting busier still which isn't a bad thing at all.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Being busy is awesome. I'd rather have that than be bored any time. Plus, these new cartoons are going to take a little more time and our posts are going to be longer, so really you're getting the same amount of work, just put doubly into one day instead of splitting it up into two days.

      Delete
  12. Are those shady figures in the last image a little teaser for the new comics look? Damn, looks like some major improvement already. It better be worth it guys, I'll have some serious withdrawal symptoms now that my humor fix comes less frequently.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I believe it very well may be a teaser of the things yet to come. Actual facial expressions and more than 6 colors per comic? Something that doesn't look like it was drawn by a 6 year old? Maybe! Oooooh, stay tuned.

      Delete
  13. Happily, I just stumbled upon you gents yesterday, so I approve of this change, as it won't mess with any expectations I might otherwise have had for post quantity. Onward ho!

    1. But it should give you something to look forward to in terms of quality! ...Maybe.

      Delete
  14. But we fear change, it scares us. Nice move though, getting us excited about your new boobs. Everyone loves that New Boob smell.
    Hopefully we can still come here every Thursday, with a beer in a brown paper bag reading and re-reading your old posts and humming to ourselves until our brains have adapted to the change. STILL better than anything on television.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We need to market that as an air freshener - new boob smell.

      I don't know if we're better than Breaking Bad, but we can beat The Real Housewives of Whore County and Axe Log Fish Truckers and whatever other awful reality shows they're passing as TV these days.

      Delete
  15. Well I'm excited. If the change is going to make you better Bloggers (not saying that you're bad. In fact, you're excellent. Phew, dug myself out of that hole!) then I'm all for it. If that teaser image is anything to go by, sounds like you have a swanky new comic design you're about to unveil, which is pant-wettingly exciting.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If we can make just one person wet their pants on Monday, then we've done our jobs as slightly-above-average bloggers!

  16. >>... We just HOPE people can embrace CHANGE...

    "Hope" and "Change". Hmmm... Where have I heard that before? And why do I suddenly have this sinking feeling, this suspicion that things are not going to improve?

  17. Sad to see Thursday's gone, but looking forward to the upgrade and new comics.

    Change is hard, but eventually it becomes the new normal and you don't even remember what it was like before. ( <----- thing that help me sleep at night)

    1. I certainly hope so. The alternative is that everyone hates it, our pageviews drop to 10 per day (family members just trying to be supportive, I assume) and then we fade off of the Internet into obscurity.

  18. Monday's will be my favorite day of the week for blog reading. I'm giving my blog an overhaul too. I'm even changing its name.

    1. What are you going to change its name to? My personal recommendation: Walter.

  19. I feel happy, yet I feel sad! I don't know what to do, my emotions are all over the place! Even though I'm bummed it will only be once a week, I completely understand and it makes absolute sense. And I guess my excitement over what is coming on Monday is winning out over being bummed that that will be the only post of the week! Can't wait to see it :)

    Makes me think I need to get serious about finally making my blog changeover. Not because I have millions of fans to impress, like you do, but just because I like to move things around!

    1. Excitement over apprehension: yes! We'll try not to disappoint.

      And more than just pleasing the crowds, it is kinda fun to mix things up every once in a while, isn't it? I've been staring at these same banners and backgrounds and layouts for the past 3 years... a change is long overdue!

      Delete
  20. Well, all I can say here is that Brandon can really rock a pair of knockers. You know, for the sake of messing with him, you should have the surgeons put squeakers in those things, so whenever he's playing with his own bazongas, EVERYONE will know about it! HA!

    I can't say I'm surprised that your Thursday posts are going the way of the do-do bird. I could tell, from the way you and Thursday were becoming increasingly distant for months. And then that slut totally cheated on you with Friday, and all hell broke loose at the ABftS company picnic...sigh. You hate to see things end like that, you know?

    I'm looking forward to the new and improved comics. I'm sure they'll be awesome. Just try and post a few of the classic style comics every now and then, for old time's sake?

    1. Squeaky toy breast implants? Why are we not funding this? As if boobs weren't already fun enough as it is!

      Also, thanks for bringing up stinging memories of that WHORE Thursday. She keeps texting me about killing my family and she yelled at my new girlfriend Monday in front of my kids and, well, let's just say we have a court date very, very soon.

      (Classic comics will definitely still appear. Probably poking fun at ourselves for using them for so damn long)

      Delete
    2. Thursday's STILL doing that kind of crap? No worries. I know a guy. Your problems should be over by the end of the weekend, no court costs.

  21. I'm a little jealous of Brandon's rack. He looks nice and perky.

    Premature congratulations on the site reconstruction. It's already big, fast and strong over here. So I am excited to see the new model.

  22. I visit here for the educational benefit. Like, I didn't know lasers made a sound. Pew...Pew...Pew! Hopefully, my education won't suffer as I'll get a double dose on Monday. Best of luck with the new endeavor!

    1. We just hope you don't overdose from that double dose. Always blog responsibly.

  23. I'll miss the Thursday posts, but I get that it takes time to create this stuff. That's why I have never committed to a set schedule. Because I fear commitment. I would change that, but I fear change.

    Looking forward to the new layout.

  24. Thursdays will definitely be boring from here on out. BUT, the issue of the day is certainly Brandon's breasts. I am green with envy. He better be careful, there are some bloggers out there who might be into big breasts. He just might start to be stalked. HUH? OK, English is my second language (not really, I'm just so dang distracted).

    1. If you think you're distracted, you should see Brandon. Poor guy hasn't formed a coherent sentence in days. Just stares straight down like Rainman and mumbles gibberish.

  27. Aw, guys. What is this. This is all kinds of sad. You're taking what for many is the worst day of the week, and applying yourself solely to that day, as if to remind them that you can make things that much better. What's with you and these ideas?

    I'm looking forward to these updates. Bring it.

    1. Don't worry, Monday will be a huge disappointment and everyone will be reminded what a bullshit day Monday truly is. It's all a part of our master plan! Mua ha ha!

      Delete
  28. Soo... Before I ever knew your blog existed, I started posting on Mondays and Thursdays too. Then I read your blog and seeing your post would remind me to post. Then I just stopped posting regularly because I was busy or lazy or something. Now that I'm posting semi regularly, its Wednesday-Thursday and you're posting only on Mondays. I can't figure out how this happened, but maybe if people aren't so busy reading the awesome posts you come up with, they'll get bored and check out my blog.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They should check out your blog anyway, regardless of what day you post. We just try to keep things consistent and keep people updated so they know when we post. It helps keep those readers around.

  29. I'm so excited to see the overhaul. I'm sure it's going to be amazing. Believe me, I understand the need to scale down on the blogging commitment. It's almost impossible to stay at the pace you start at as you grown and take on other projects. I'm sure you'll make every Monday a great one.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The funny thing is we're not exactly scaling down. We'd rather just consolidate the effort we put into two posts and make one awesome super-post. Is that a thing? Fuck it, I'm making it a thing. Stay tuned for Monday's super-post.

  35. So, what, you guys think you're me now? I had my posting schedule all mapped out. I tried to post Monday's and Wednesdays but then this weird thing called life got in the way. My posts dropped down to once a week too. It frees up a ton of time…and I don't have any cool cartoons or a 1/4 of the followers you do! I imagine it's difficult to keep up with twice a week.

    Can't wait to see the change!

    1. Life always gets in the way, because life is a big fat jerk.

      Really, though, we're still spending the same amount of time posting. We'd rather just consolidate that time into one big, awesome post than two decent posts. So... no vacation for these guys.

  39. I've been seeing your comments at Strange Pegs for a while and have wanted to come on over here and see if your Beer for the Shower could perhaps, by an intelligent person, be translated into chardonnay in the shower and by golly, I believe it can. Coldness isn't quite the issue since I take very short showers. Just not one of those hang out there until the hot water is gone kinda girl. My three men are. (The Engineer, The Transporter, 16, and OYT (Our Youngest Teen - he picked it himself, what can I say, not nearly as cool as The Transporter - you have seen the movie, right?) who is 14). Very nice to finally meet you and looking forward to Bionic Monday.
