    I'm surprised Khoo doesn't use a paddle like this: http://www.gotabletennis.com/Butterfly_Senkoh_1_Japanese_Style_p/20360.htm

    There's a big difference between Japanese Penhold and Chinese Penhold paddles. They're more similar to each other than shakehand, but still quite distinct paddles and playstyles.

    What you linked is Jpen. Khoo uses Cpen.

    Fact: I want to win the lottery so I can give every Strip Search artist one meeeellion dollars to help free them up to do whatever they want to make their dreams come true and stuff.
    Fact: Then I'll take all the credit for the inevitable successes.
    Fact: Oh, this should probably have been the first fact: I'm kind of dastardly.

There is no unicycle race on Project Runway. So why'd they bother getting a bunch of cartoonists together if almost every episode is going to be about something totally unrelated to cartooning?

    What I find funny is how some people missed Graham say in the first episode that the show was not about drawing comics, that they were looking for the artist that was the total package. Can handle fans, cons, the work enviroment, merch sales, network, publicity...ect. Seems that if you want comics you could... you know go to their comics page and read them.

    I don't watch any of those shows, but if they made a bunch of models race unicycles that may very well change.

    If American Idol made contestants enter a pie-eating contest or Project Runway had a unicycle race I'd be a lot more interested in both those shows...

    Because they will be living in Seattle and working out of the Penny Arcade offices. As a result, it helps greatly if you are someone that is comfortable with Seattle and can handle Penny Arcade's internal culture. And Penny Arcade employees play a lot of games and are very competitive. As for the clay... it's still art, it's still a challenge where you're creating something as an artist. It's just a different medium. Monica's free to sell hot dog T-shirts if she wants.

    No, he didn't say the "complete web cartoonist package", he just said the complete package. As in, they're looking for a person who can fit in well and prosper in PA-land.

    Next episode is based on who does the best job of painting Jerry's toenails.

    This has been said enough times already, but... those are the social challenges. The fun stuff. The things that have led to zero eliminations. No one's fate should turn on them, and so far no one's has. In theory that could change with the next one, depending on exactly what Katie's prize is, but even then ping pong is the one social challenge so far that has actually involved something important to the PA team. Khoo says that anyone spending a year in their building is going to have to get used to the game, so if this plays an indirect role in their fates, that's still fitting.

    It's 2am Friday and there is still no new episode. I need to go to work soon. Why oh why are they holding Friday hostage? Is Friday not good enough? Does it have to be a specific TIME on Friday? If so, what IS that EXACT time, since simply "Friday" isn't good enough? Maybe it has to be Friday on Mars or something, before they can post the "Friday" episode. Doesn't this thing have an event timer to publish, or is modern technology not good enough to drop a video on the internets when Friday happens, but must instead be posted when some human bothers to get up at a time later than the start of "Friday" and pushes an arcane combination of buttons, like a modern day witch doctor? I thought we were beyond all that, and posting something on "Friday" would happen pretty much at the same time that "Friday" happened. It's like the dark ages in here. Surely someone involved in posting these things has a watch or sand timer, or even a calendar etched in ancient stone, and might notice that Friday happened hours ago, and they're late.

    Fellow left-coastian here, too. Since waiting for today's episode I cleaned the kitchen, tried to catch a mouse, watched a Jenova Chen lecture, and did some concept art. That's how long I've been waiting and it still isn't up.

    If it makes any of you feel better - it is noon here in Hungary. Really would like to watch the show at work rather than take time out of my evening at home.

    I guess we were just spoiled by a few weeks of prompt postings as this is becoming a recurring theme. I can't complain too much about this free entertainment being provided to me.

    It was nice, though, when I could count on strip search to sustain me during two mid-night newborn twin feedings a week. :p

    word up to that. I can wait for someone to come into the office and hit the <post that new video> button.

    Almost 5 AM here, and my mind turns to horror movie scenarios where the production crew is fighting for their lives while trapped inside a burning building on a sinking ship filled with zombies—which is, let's face it, a much more awesome thing to deal with than hitting "upload" to the servers.

    oh wait... what if it's not even ready, yet? As if, they were still editing up to last night and had to push it to Final Cut for an overnight processing?

    That's also a super-acceptable and completely understandable excuse.

    /On the other hand... Zombies. Also a great excuse.

    So Penny Arcade hires people based on how well they fit into the social group? That's how you decide who your friends are, not who should work for you. My boss loves Galactus and Bioshock, but my interview for my current job involved no Galactus cosplay or FPS tournaments.

    My main complaint, though, is that I'm just bored by all this crap. During the sketching for tips challenge, I was momentarily excited because I thought we'd get to see these people draw under pressure, but no, they just focused on the slack-jawed fake convention trolling and barely gave us a glance at what the cartoonists were creating.

    In Penny Arcade's case, it's both. They've said straight-up, they're essentially hiring someone to be their friend. By the point that things get to in-person interviews, everyone remaining has displayed an acceptable level of basic competence, so social cohesion comes more into play. Several times the job is basically already spoken for by someone they've already worked with and hung out with. A PAX volunteer, maybe. Khoo put a job posting in the Artist's Corner and that was Lexxy's first attempt.

    Watch the New Hire and Child's Play Hire episodes of PA: The Series. Yes, they hire people based on how they fit into their office culture.

    Companies like Netflix and Hubspot also take employee culture very seriously, although they probably don't play Soul Calibur and D&D with their interviewees, but that's just one of the things that makes Penny Arcade so unique.

    I haven't seen those shows and honestly they don't really sound very much to my taste. I guess I was under the mistaken impression that Strip Search was about cartooning and not just another "compete to be Gabe & Tycho's friends" series. I'm honestly not trying to just hate on the series, I really like the people they've gathered. I just want to see them exercise the unique skills that got them where they are.

    Maybe they know these people have a basic level of competence, but the viewers don't. We have to be shown. And as of this episode we still haven't seen Monica complete a comic strip. (I know she can be funny because I've read her stuff online, but I haven't had the opportunity to see her create on camera.)

    Not here. PA: The Series. I want to say (not 100% positive but I want to say) it's the episode 'Enforcers'. Could also be 'Kurtz' or 'First Hire', though. I'm not certain, but I know it's in the series somewhere.
