Another day, another tire changed.
You’re welcome, Casey Patricia, you’re welcome.
>This link takes you to a de-bouncified version of the famous bigfoot video. Without all the bounce, it looks more like a guy in a suit. I’m not discounting the possibility that it’s real but if I had to put my money down based on this version of the video alone, I’d go with hoax. Cool video nonetheless

I finally got around to reading the Dark Horse anthology Happy Endings.
This is a good collection. The highlights were the stories by Leland
Myrick, Brian Michael Bendis, Katie Mignola (Mike’s daughter), Craig
Thompson, Farel Dalrymple, Peter Kuper, Tony Millionaire and Harvey
Pekar. Whew, that’s a long list for a short book. I enjoyed this
anthology more than even Teratoid Heights, at least in narrative. That
kinda seems like a rule for me, to dislike independant anthologies. And
now here I am liking one with more ‘name’ creators, even though some of
the above are definitely independant creators they have notariety (e.g.
Dalrymple). Come to think of it, I enjoyed Batman: Black & White a lot
too, a very mainstream anthology.
I guess I’m more of an ‘everyman’ when it comes to collections. But
really all those folks who haven’t read Kramer’s Ergot is more likely
because they’ve never heard of it than that they have a particular
distaste for independant work. And the big indie readers are unique
just like everyone else.
This is Kipp’s arsenal.
Girls against boys. Replica Sig Sauers and Berettas. Shooting each other in my neighborhood wearing terrorist masks and no one called the cops. A very special F the 13 yesterday. Matty WAS James Bond.
At least he kept saying so.
One of the things I love most about comics is finding stories that sound
really dumb or ridiculous but that are executed so well that they are
fantasticly brilliant. We3 is one of those books, well it may not be as
imaginative as Miracleman or as poetic as Swamp Thing but it is
certainly a good comic. And you wouldn’t think one about a cat, a
rabbit and a dog who are put in weapon suits by the government to
assassinate terrorists would be. Of course it is written by Grant
Morrison so you can expect it to be better than most on the shelf.
The book is great as an action and it appeals to pathos very well too.
In fact I was almost in tears in certain parts but I do have a huge soft
spot for the little furry ones. By the end I was furious at the
injustice of a government experiment that never existed.
How’s that for fiction?
The era of CD hoarding is over. I sold the last of my CDs this weekend and bought a Black 60GB iPod. I am free of the physical constraints of a medium-sized music collection. It’s all fits into my pocket now, along with all those downloaded clips, old after school specials (thanks, Dave and Archive.org) and all 9,215 of my pictures. I grew up in the digital era and it’s still amazing to me.
The rest of everyone else can’t be too far behind.
