Pomplamoose - A Few Of My Favorite Things

One of my favorite things is seeing a Metafilter post about a cover of a terrible song and discovering something really wonderful. Discovering this band and Au Revoir Simone are a couple of bright spots in an otherwise crummy month.

Pomplamoose means grapefruit in French, but in my mind I see an arrogant ungulate. Yes, I know I'm weird.

Sorry, pretty much had to.

Comic-Con Cosplay

I love this time of year. Comic-Con is happening and pics of cosplayers abound on the interwebs. Emma Frost seems to be the go-to costume for chicks wanting to show some skin this year. There's also silly, classic, clever and kickass.

My absolute favorite.

Of course this unabashed expression of nerdity always makes me think of this song by MC Frontalot:

woooo more pics now with snarky commentary

R. Crumb Genesis

R. Crumb has illustrated Genesis. He did it straight, too, which is extremely awesome. The book comes out October 19th, but you can get a sneak peek here.

The Pinnacle of Human Achievement

Is this. No, really.

What, I hadn't posted in over a month. I had to post something.

Holy Crap This Is AWESOME

Seriously, it's like the Manos: The Hands of Fate of garage band videos.

I'm not being ironic here either, I had a big ol' smile on my face the whole damn time I was watching this thing. Sure, they suck, but they are sucking with honor. Beats the shit out of a Guitar Hero video, that's for sure.

Royksopp - Remind Me

I always wondered what that song was in the Geico commercial.

(fantastic video, btw)

Abstruse Goose EBook

Abstruse Goose has released an EBook of cartoons. Read it and donate so his site isn't down half the time from Reddit hammering his server.

What I'm listening to right now

Bob Claster's Funny Stuff

There's a whole mess of interviews with comedy legends from Bob's radio days on there. John Cleese and Michael Palin are feeding off each other in their interview, there's cool old sketches that are very hard to find in Peter Cook's show and the Tom Lehrer program is practically a greatest hits album with commentary. If you love comedy, it's worth checking out.

Dropkick Murphys - The Spicy McHaggis Jig

Gotta have some Dropkick on St. Patty's Day.

Gotta have some Stiff Little Fingers too, come to think of it.

The Pogues can wait until Cinco De Mayo.

Hitler is not a Zach Snyder fan

I pegged Adolf as more of a Frank Miller fan, but hey, the guy is passionate about his comics.

Saturday Morning Watchmen

I'd been looking forward to the release of Watchmen for years and now that the say is here, I can't go see it. FML. At least I can watch the cartoon.

Maybe the best thing ever

This is funny enough, but when he pulled out the "May the farts be with you" line in the description I nearly lost it.

Today, I reloaded this page 14 times

and every damn time I laughed harder. FML.

Reading 4chan archive threads until you laugh so hard you puke is way better for depression than Prozac or Zoloft.

Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!

Rudy's sack on YouTube (heh) spliced together from original game film and the radio play by play.

I must confess I've never seen this movie. I'm not big on heartwarming drama. However, I am a fan of Samwise, especially since his pop was Gomez Addams. Besides, it does my Bulldog alum heart good to see someone beating Georgia Tech.

Amazing Comic

This is from the guy who created Subnormality, one of my favorite comics. One of these days I need to update all the links on the sidebar, it's like a snapshot of the stuff I was reading in 2005. Anyway, he did this comic for an anthology and it's just fantastic. Horrifying, heartbreaking, and just plain terrifying, but amazing. It reminds me a lot of some of the really good underground stuff that was created back in the late '60s/early '70s. Spiegelman, Bodé, Crumb, that kind of stuff. It's probably not safe for work, and be warned that you will greatly affected by reading this but it's well worth it.

So I Changed The Name Of My Shitty Blog

It seemed like the times demanded it.

For old times' sake, here is the inspiration to the old title.

When I created the blog, that particular refrain seemed appropriate. It's a new day however, so I've decided to make the title more optimistic. Thankfully I had another inspiration for this title to make it all personal and stuff:

Hey, I just said the times had changed, I didn't say they weren't still terrifying as hell.

How To:


Step 1: Write the name of every Beatles song on its own 3 by 5 index card.

Step 2: Shuffle all the cards.

Step 3: Throw all the cards off the observatory deck of the Empire State Building.

Step 4: Search the streets of Manhattan for the cards.

Step 5: Rank the songs in the order you find the cards. The first song you find is teh suxxorz. The last card you find is the best song ever.

There you have it! Instant Beatle Song Ranking System!

And no matter what happens, it's still better than this shitty list!

Archives completed: Questionable Content

Questionable Content

Ok fine, it's a 'romance' webcomic. It's still funny as hell and I have a tooncrush on Hanners, just like every other nerd on the interwebs. I didn't even mean to go through the whole archives, it just sorta happened. It's kinda fascinating how the art evolves on that strip... I mean, it changes so much, but you really don't notice the change and it's never really "bad" art. It's just a little more minimalist at the beginning. Still, it's a good comic and I finished the archives, which is something I haven't done with a webcomic in years. At least since Fans! and Elf Life burned my ass long ago. Maybe I should buy a shirt to celebrate. I'm thinking the Giant Isopod shirt. I feel pretty.

Gonna do Overcompensating next. I've heard Wigu is better but I have yet to read an Overcompensating comic that did not make me laugh.

Delta 5 - Mind Your Own Business

I don't know what's more awesome, the song or the dude dancing in the streets of Montreal.

I actually like "Try" better, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

My absolute favorite thing of the year

EVERY year.

The Beast's 50 Most Loathsome People In America article is out. I am happy.

Of course this means the rest of the year is completely fucking downhill like a greased elephant seal down a luge course, but I'm used to that.

And now, for no discernible reason, Radiohead.

This is one of those songs I could put on a loop and listen to for hours.
