I very much enjoyed reading this. I played the shit out of Yu-Gi-Oh when I was a freshman in highschool and I also very much loved cars as well. My 14 year old self love this so much. Read more

She then proceeds to tell me about how she and her little sister used to have tournaments whilst sitting on floating balls in a pool, and that said little sister carried a Seto Kaiba action figure in her shirt every day and showed me an old school photo as verification. I’m learning so much! Thanks, Yu-Gi-Oh!

Started playing that clip out of morbid curiosity, and my girlfriend came running into the room, screaming “Yu-Gi-Oh?!” Then saying things like, “Classic Seto!” and “I just realized that he and Brock have the same voice actor.” Read more

The only disagreement I have here is that I would have given Yugi a Honda City Turbo for the _extra_ spiky bits. (and strapped the motocompo on the roof)

I don’t really know much about Yu-Gi-Oh, I’m just doing what little I can to drive up the click and engagement counts so Alanis can tell both Ballaban and PG that she told them so.

Also, gonna miss your writing Alanis. It was always enjoyable and your NASCAR pieces convinced me to see a race at the Glen which was totally worth it.

Well...I have never watched Yu Gi Oh and knew nothing about it, now I know things about it, also read about cars, and was entertained. Success??

But Alanis, Kaiba already has a friggin’ Blue Eyes White Dragon jet that also transforms into a boat:

Why does it take having someone about to leave for us to get an article like this. This is the kind of shizz we need every freaking day.

This is, without equivocation, the most righteous shit I’ve ever read. Very curious what the older readers make of this, or even just reader who liked less bizarre cartoons.

I think some of the side villains need to be mentioned, to note that Bandit Keith would drive a Ford Raptor, because it’s the most American truck.

Alanis, if there was ever a way to say goodbye, this is it. May the Heart of the Cards always be with you.

OK, now I’m bummed! It’s a shame to see you go Alanis, I’ve thuroghly enjoyed following your work all these years, plus I’m an F1 fanatic and general motorsport nut, and you’ve been a kindred spirit here at the Jalopshow. I wish you all the best at BI and wherever else your talents may take you. I’ll be sure to keep Read more

Well said, “In a lot of ways, working your dream job changes a lot of things about the very dream that got you there”. I’ve been lucky enough, through 100% dedication and sacrifice actually, to reach my dream job once in my life. Read more

Thank you for being so vulnerable and introspective with this. It’s easy to forget that dream jobs are jobs, and that it takes proper perspective to help keep the fire stoked. I hope you always find a few minutes (or a whole session) to give the spark some light. Keep going! Read more

My father was in charge of an NHRA drag strip my entire life. Its not as glamorous as it seems. Its loud, its hot, it smells bad, people are a-holes because so many of them are stretched so financially to make this ‘hobby’ happen, that the thought of not winning round money means no groceries for a few more days.
