Hey there, 5idewinders,
I have some bad news for you. It's good news for me, as my career is picking up in wonderful ways. Unfortunately, this has cut my spare time in about half, as part of "career picking up" includes much more work, a little more stress, and even a very big move. Spare time is mostly eaten by "filling out forms" and "packing stuff in cardboard boxes." :)
So, what does this mean for 5ideways? Not good things, as mentioned - I haven't had the chance to work on it in awhile, and I don't foresee the chance coming up in the future with any sort of schedule. What will happen, then?
5ideways is switching update schedules. Instead of a page or a couple every few weeks, what you'll get is sporadic updates every few months. How will we know when there's an update?
You can keep this community on your friends list, or just check it, as well. Since the updates will be a lot more rare now, I'll also announce it on the FH comm, so if you follow that, you should be fine.
Finally, I apologize. I know it's never pleasant when a story you're following gets sidetracked, and I'm sorry it has happened to 5ideways. Still, I figured I'd be direct about it and let you know what's going on. Thanks for reading so far.

I've got nothing.
No, really, nothing. At all. Haven't touched 5ideways since last time's half-finished page. I thought I'd have a good three pages, at least, but nope. Nothing.
Part of this is that I got some good news, career-wise, and while that's really, really, really
welcome, my free time is mostly nil. It's been all I can do to keep up with Friendly Hostility, and even though I took two weeks off there, I'm still not at a comfortable point with it.
So...I'm not sure what to do. I definitely want to continue with the comic; I miss it. Unfortunately, the spirit is willing, but the hours in the day are not enough.

Current page status? Scripted, laid out, sketched. And I'm not going to finish inking it tonight.
I have to call another hiatus, I'm sorry. This is my secondary comic, and since lately I can barely find the time to update my main comic, well, this one suffers, as has been obvious. :( I wound up burning myself out in real life and winding up pretty sick for a few days.
So give me another month, please? Say February 27. I'll make up for all these delays then.
Please accept my apologies.

Unfortunately, there will not be an update this week. The world is conspiring against all of us and crotalus_atrox especially has been super busy. Next week. :)
Current Mood: calm

No comic until next Wednesday. :( I know, I'm sorry, lack of time. The usual. It's very embarrassing to me; I promise that next week we'll have something new and fabulous.
Sandra Current Mood: embarrassed

As usual when I have no time, the comic that suffers first is 5ideways. So, the comic is on hiatus again, and won't update until...*checks calendar* January 9th.
Hope to see you guys then,
PS - Apologies for waiting until the weekend to post this.

Good evening, 5idewinders.http://www.5ideways.com
We have a new page for you. Enjoying the wide open spaces? Enjoy 'em while you can. Soon I start my experiment in visual claustrophobia, we'll see how that goes. :)

Sorry, 5idewinders, no update this week. FH combined with real life have been kicking my butt lately, so I'm taking this week off. See you next week, hopefully. Again, my apologies.

Hey, 5idewinders. No comic this week; my apologies. :( Just have been a little bit harried.

Another one-page update. Nic has a new overcoat, but you'll get a better look at it next week. I should also have more pages then, too. I'm disappointed at only one page today, but will try harder next week. Current Mood: disappointed

We have a one-page update, just the cover page, but I hope you like it anyway. The red's less realistic and more dramatic, if only because I like how it makes the image look almost wounded.
Yeah, I needed a break this week, folks. :)

Evening, 5idewinders. 5ideways
has updated with the final page of the interlude. Now we move on to what you've all been waiting for...the chapter that answers more questions than it brings up! Yay, new chapter!

Hello, my delicious 5idewinders!
You know, actually? I wouldn't have the first clue how sidewinder, specifically, tastes. I don't know that I want to find out, truth be told.
Anyhow, that is not the point of this post! The point of this post is to tell you that if you scoot on over to the Songs section
of 5ideways, you will find that the album is now available!
So let me tell you about this album:
First, just so that everybody is properly introduced, the album is named Songs from Sideways: Year 1.
It says hello. :) Basically, this is what I've been doing with most of my free time over the past year, in case you wonder what I do with my free time. The album encompasses the first year's worth of music from 5ideways. The catch is that the songs have been...I don't want to say remixed...re-imagined would be a better way to put it, maybe? Re-thought? Some of the tracks have elements of their original versions, but others are completely different takes. In addition to the six songs from the first year, there are also four entirely new songs. For the record (har-har), there are two mixes of "Give In," and because I know that there are at least a few of you who would gladly toss on a long-haired wig and paint a few hundred mouths on yourselves (okay, maybe that's just me), I have also included a karaoke track of the remade version of "Food for Thought." That makes a total of twelve songs on this album. ^_^
Right now, we're only offering the physical CD in the store. There is international shipping available (just ask half of the people who have ordered the album so far...!), but please bear in mind that it is shipping from the continental US, and so you'll want to factor for shipping times. Before long, we will have digital copies available through iTunes (every iTunes store out there: US, UK/EU, Australia/N.Z., and Japan), Rhapsody, Napster, eMusic, Sony Connect and GroupieTunes- the last of which is for ring tones, in case you happen to think that your loved ones have a thousand mouths and a penchant for afro-cuban big band music. I will let you know when that much goes online.
The physical album costs $12, plus shipping and handling.
Samples are up and available, either by clicking the link above the picture of the album on the Songs page, or just by going here
I hope you all will give it a listen, and I hope you enjoy it.
OH! Before I forget: Any copy of the (physical) album can be signed by me-- just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your transaction number, and let me know to whom I need to address the album, and what you'd like me to say. Or you can just email me to say hi. :) That's good, too. There is no additional charge for a signed album. Please note: signed albums have had their shrink-wrap removed, possibly by my teeth. ;) I've never been patient with shrink-wrap.
-P Current Mood: accomplished

Hello, new update day! One new page. Tomorrow, we'll update with some new stuff, too.
By now, I should hope that you've realized that this chapter isn't really
about Nic vs penanggalans.

New Update Day
Rather than updating on Fridays, our brand-spanking new guaranteed-update day is Wednesday, starting next week. Next week also brings our first official 5ideways merchandise.
Hope to see you guys then. Current Mood: dead!

Sorry for the delay. Comic is up and we thank you for your patience.
I think panel #2 is my favorite. I love the perspective.
Current Mood: tired
