Candi Random *Fact Thread

Postby Starline on Wed Dec 14, 2005 8:44 am

So yeah, I'm drawing the comic and all these little tidbits about the comic pop through my head and I realize that there are somethings that I would probably never mention in the comic, but I think would be interesting to know. So this thread is for me to share some random bits of Candi info whenever I get the urge to. Enjoy!

(Most of these were copied over from the Nightstar Forum)

-Alex's hair changes direction on a whim. It just does. No explaination for it.

-Candi wears contacts lenses. She puts on glasses every once in a while. But its rare.

-Candi's middle name is Jane.

-Candi and Jon went on 1 date in 9th grade.
Although she thought about it, Candi wasn't interested in him after that.
She does know, however, that Jon still likes her.
She chooses to ignore it.

-Jon's had several girlfriends in high school, so he's not totally just pinning for Candi.

-Candi's original hair color was light green. But pink looked better.

Okay, I originally had another strip with this conversation written out to follow March 25, 2005 's strip. But I had scratched it because I wanted to move the story along faster. (This is why I need to try and make it a daily comic). But anyway, here's the missing strip's dialogue:

P1- Alex (on phone): What was that?
Candi: Jon said he'd go with me.

P2- Alex: Oh! Well then there you go. Problem fixed.
Candi (on phone): Well, yeah. But I wanted you to go...

P3. Alex: Why? You think Jon will try something?
Candi (while looking at Jon read his book): No, he wouldn't. You know that.

P4. Alex: So... then what's the big deal?
Candi: I just... you know, nevermind. It's okay. I know you need to study...

Soundtrack(?) for Candi.
These songs reveal possible plot points for certain characters in my head. Everytime I hear them, its like the background music for particular scenes that may or may not happen. Look up the lyrics, or listen to the songs if you'd like. They might not be for the characters you think they are for. That is all.


"Mr. Brightside" by The Killers
"Change Your Mind" by The Killers
"Just the Girl" by The Click Five
"I Want Candy", Good Charlotte version.
"Candy", by Will Smith (this is just funny)
"What Are You Waiting For?" Gwen Stefani
"Bubble Pop Electric" by Gwen Stefani (day dream sequence)
"LoveFool" by The Cardigans
"Since U Been Gone" Kelly Clarkson
"I Won't Say [I'm In Love]" Disney's Hercules
"Shut Up" by Black Eye Peas
"My Stupid Mouth" John Mayer
"Love Song For No One" by John Mayer
"Neon" by John Mayer
"Accidently In Love" Counting Crows
"Don't Cha" by the Pussycat Girls
"She's Got A Boyfriend" by Bowling For Soup
"Emily" by Bowling For Soup
"Life After Lisa" by Bowling For Soup
"The Killer's Song" by Carolina Marquez
"Don't Call Me Baby" by Madison Avenue
"Flagpole Sitta" by Harvey Danger
"Criminal" by Fiona Apple
"Let Me Be With You" Chobits Theme Song
"Tomo" by PitBull
"Little Less Talk, More Action" by Tim Deluxe
"Ain't Too Proud To Bed" by The Temptations
"Crush" by Jennifer Paige
"All I Wanna Do" Sheryl Crow
"Wonderwall" by Oasis
"Pet Names" by Smash Mouth
"They Say Vision" by Res
"Can't Get Enough Of You Baby" by Smash Mouth
"Murder On the Dance Floor" by Sophie Ellis Bexter
"Sorry" by Madonna


The whole Maroon 5, "Songs About Jane" album. (This also is why Candi's middle name is Jane. It's just coincedence that Candi Jane also sounds like Candy Cane.)

The whole No Doubt, "Tragic Kingdom" Album




Also note that if I'm not imaging the scenes that these songs go to, the characters are instead singing them at karoke or something.

And I'll probably add more as I remember them.

Candi needs her Zappa!

I'll ignore your cheap aroma
And your little-bo-peep diploma
I'll just put you in a coma
With some dirty love

Sorry, that just completely changed my vision of the personal dynamics of this comic. Not in a bad way necessarily, just... Hmmm... :-|
