>Monohorns

>

I’ll let this one speak for itself:

“Unicorn Club

If you, too, are a lover of the monohorn and enjoy nothing more than watching them romp through the meadow and take sips from the cool, running stream while chasing rainbows and butterflies, you have found a home among us.”

>Wyatt Earp’s Wife

>

These galleries contain tons of things from the history of ‘cop-dom’. Check out the old British billy club gallery (some of those were nasty). Anything from old photos of cops from the West, to gravestones of famous law givers, to an exhaustive gallery of police badges from throughout time and region are provided. There’s even a hat gallery.

Of course there’s also a “Grotesque Crime Scene Photos” gallery. Watch out for that one, though, I think I may be scarred for life now. I had no idea that a human being could do that much damgage to another human with a knife. I just didn’t think we were capable. Excuse me while I go vomit.

NASA has been maintaining an impressive archive of digital images from the Apollo program in its entirety. The gallery has thousands of high resolution pics from the project and many of them are fantastic finds. There are some really great images in there.

What happens when you translate “Chelsea Rose” through five different languages and finally back to English?

“is increased Chelsea”

Drew Blatman = “blatman projected”

>Persepolis

>

Just started reading Marjane Satrapi’s widely popular Persepolis. I actually was never interested in the book but I spied it on the shelf of my library and started it just out of curiousity to see what all the fuss was about. Well, I’m now almost finished and the book is great. The storytelling reminds me a lot of Rick Geary’s style. That is to say, it is very accessible, informative, and entertaining. Perhaps she was influenced by Geary. I won’t go into any more detail since there’s so much information out there on it and whoever reads this will most likely have heard of it.

>The Arcade Fire

>

Sorry it’s been so long on the updates, I’ve been so absorbed in comics blogs and tech news sites that I haven’t even peeked around in other corners of the web recently.

I have, however, received a recommendation on a band by Zachary and they are “The Arcade Fire.” After the second listen or so it is apparent that their Funeral is a classic. There is so much emotion bundled up in the lyrics and music that I can’t help but to get almost broken up everytime I listen. So I’ve been on the verge of tears for days now. What if Zack hadn’t mentioned them? I’d be missing out on some beautiful and earnest music.

So now I pass them along to everyone to be touched as I have been.

UPDATE: Alright, I was wrong, it’s not Funeral, but their earlier stuff I am so enamored with. I had some files and didn’t know that they were earlier stuff. Turns out I don’t really like their first full length so much. But if you can track down their first EP or some live stuff from before Funeral you might know what I’m talking about.

Official Site with some MP3s.

>Bat-Bling

Bat your eyes at these, Bat-kids, the latest in Blingin Batwear.

Ok, now that that’s out of my system, check out these hella-cheap ass watches from Canada. And then think about the one nerdy Canadian kid in Toronto who thinks these are awesome and is elated to find a way to be fashionable AND a comic book geek.

I bet Napoleon D. would wear one of these.

>New Finds in Blogdom

>

I’ve just discovered Quentin Tarantino’s blog and Tommy “Two Toes” Trialdo’s blog. Trialdo was a big gangster in the 80’s and according to Tarantino was an inspiration for Scarface and some other film gangster. His blog is all very self-indulgent but also extremely interesting. Apparently Tarantino wants to bring his life story to the screen, whether he’s directing or not.

>Magic Markers

>

SA‘s “Anti-Republican protestors” bit on the front page is helping me to realize that the whole country isn’t going totally to shit. I too, H-A-T-E fucking protesters in general and believe it to be a very out-dated and ineffective tactic. Apparently some people on the other side do too:

“Wow! Suddenly I hate George Bush and think America is just like Nazi Germany, all thanks to a fucking posterboard sign held by some fat unemployed shithead!”

More choice nuggets lie within. The blurb is the second point on the main page for the Tuesday, September 7th post. More:

“If people have to choose between George Bush and a crowd of furious bicyclists whose biggest claim to fame is that one of their blogs was mentioned in passing by Al Franken on that one AM radio station nobody turns on because it’s about as exciting as listening to NPR at 50% speed, they’ll either choose George Bush or they’ll choose to look away when the riot police start caving in skulls with their nightclubs.”
