The firing squad takes aim at me and shoots, but luckily I was able to perfectly dodge every bullet thanks to my mastery of the Cha-Cha Slide.

Is therapy covered by Devon Corps health insurance?
The one thing you have to hand to the world of Pokemon is that they've got socialized medicine down pat. Does Nurse Joy's healing machine also treat depression?
holy moley I loved the stock photo runs back in the day. I'm so glad you're back and doing this again, Nate. This is already incredible. And I'm excited for more.
Aww, thanks! I'm really hoping to make an experience that's enjoyable to both people who read the old runs and newcomers too. Thanks for sticking with me after all this time.
Eyyy, Robbie's back! And working as a therapist for those dealing with the existential terror of dying in the world they knew and waking up to one with capitalism!

Oh, I forgot about Geodude and Nosepass... I like the simplicity of Geodude just being a rock, and Nosepass just straight-up being a nose is very funny. I also like the stock photo representing Mr. Briney--the expression on the model's face as he stares straight into the camera is very something, and whatever it is is a lot more interesting than just any old man in boat captain attire. Stone Cold Steve Austin as the Devon Corp. president is great too, and I enjoyed the slow zoom over Robbie's existential crisis. You really excel at making these stock photos visually interesting and expressive!
I appreciate that! There are times where the first stock photo that pops up is the right one, and there are other times where I have to do some digging to find the one that gives off the right vibe. Thanks!

Episode 6: Trendy Town Trouble

I dunno about you, but seeing what the Trendy Phrase winds up being is the first thing I do when I go to Dewford. Some of the results are...interesting.

For the young 'uns here that don't remember the old commercials...

Had to get that old Brawly photo in there somehow. The remakes gave some Gym Leaders more of a rework than others.

Run from the fundies, Nate!!! And it seems like the capitalists are none too pleased. 👀

Between long periods of dormant slumber, this writer rises again for periods of activity that leave piles of dead fictional Pokemon in their wake
Capitalism is coming to destroy Hoenn... might be for the best just to let Aqua drown 'em

SMH I can't believe you'd run away from the fertility cult.

The trendy phrase people being represented by scary cultists in robes cracked me the hell up. And any time a Pokémon is represented by Just a Kid is a win in my book. I also like the sequel joke of Steven Stone now being Tim Cook rather than Steve Jobs. But big 👀 at the hints of a conspiracy going on (even if it's getting bogged down by comedic infighting).

If I worry about my gender identity, it just confuses me, so I'm good with the three main ones. I just may correct a "he," though, but I take no offense from it.
