Here is the announcement that was announced yesterday:
I have started a new blog centered around a diary, and other items, that I recently found in my attic.
Apparently, these various articles, from a possible former resident of our home, belonged to an individual that was a member of Cobra. Yes, that Cobra.
Spoiler Alert: (highlight the hidden invisible ink text to read)
I came up with this idea a couple years ago while watching some GI Joe. The thought process went something like this: “We know Duke (GI Joe himself), Scarlett, Gung Ho, Cobra Commander, Destro, etc. We know their stories. But when it shows the big battles, it shows hundreds of guys on both sides, shooting it out. Where did these guys come from? They’re humans too, they have stories. They had to have just joined up with either GI Joe or Cobra as an enlisted man.” I thought the story of why a normal human being would enlist in Cobra was way more interesting than the story of why a guy would join GI Joe.
I originally wanted to do it as a comic, but it would take forever and only like 5 of my friends would see it. In blog form, it reaches a lot of people quickly and easily.
Also, I want to very clear: this is the last time I will ever openly admit that the journal is not real. It is also the last time I will acknowledge that there is a show called “GI Joe” that details the struggles between these two organizations.
Enjoy it, and share it with your friends, please.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank any and all co-conspirators who have brainstormed and laughed with me while formulating what the final product of this new endeavor would be about and would include.
