At present I'm looking for a new flat/apartment and although not particularly interesting, the upshot of this is that I'm finding it increasingly difficult to update Apple Shampoo as much as I would like to. I always aim to put my best effort in to writing and drawing the strip and it's just not possible right now.
However if you are one of the few who finds something to like amongst the smudged ink and crude cut and paste work don't fear! Apple Shampoo will return in mid-july when I will be nicely settled in my new pad. That's only about a month away and you could point out that I sometimes update AS less than that anyway...but dont. Anyway the only other AS news is that when it does return the strip will be re-structured slightly - all cartoons involving my fictional band Sharks and Minnows (that name is going to change by the way on account of the fact it sucks massive balls) will take the name 'Inspired By The Dollar'. This is kind of a spin-off, hopefully more Frasier/Cheers and less Joey/Friends but I guess you can be the judge of that.
Hope if anyone out there does read you'll tell other AP users to check Apple Shampoo when it's back
Final thoughts: Listen to Halfhearted Hero and know that Tom Delonge will always miss a note here and there when playing live - if you think it matters that much you're missing the point!
