Happy Birthday, Mr. Depressing-Webcomics Strip

It was two years ago today, that I started THE LAST ROAD HOME. Seven-hundred, twenty-eight and a half days later, I'm still alive [I'm just as surprised as you are] and posting a panel of the strip a day [wink wink] as part of my lifetime commitment to eradicate the scourge of Endemic Treponematosis within my lifetime. I could certainly be doing better, but I'm not dead yet. Huzzazulito!

Haiku contest, lost.
Criterion Collection's
"Other favorites"

In addition to the Cassavetes haiku, I also sent them an elongated [5-7-7-7-5] senryu:

"Dear Criterion,
Please publish Tati's oeuvre,
STORY OF A THREE-DAY PASS
and MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW
on DVD. Thanks."

If they put those movies out eventually, it will all be worth it. Or something.

A kinder, gentler, shorter link-parking post

Here's a neato flash page of "nevaeH oT yawriatS" and other backwards invocations to sweet Satan; also, a Wiki page of backmasked messages. As these things go, I still enjoy Roger Waters' rambling, elliptical backwards babble about Stanley Kubrick the most.

Ooo, slow-motion movies. The water-balloon and engine videos are hypnotic.

Good grief, I recognized all 20 of the Sounds That Must Die and if they must go, we shall die together! Or something like that. If I still owned a Yamaha DX7, I would clench it to my heaving bosom and throw us both off the nearest cliff. No instrument that dominated the Pop/Adult Contemporary charts for so long should die alone.

Meet the Birds.

I recently heard a reading of the "Guns are Fun!" monologue on some Hinckley documentary; the actor sounded like an NRA commercial voiceover.

If you can actually understand why these sign photos are funny, then you are a nerd.

Finley Peter Dunne was quite a quotable fellow.

And, something to peruse for the phew: A Sonic the Comic archive.

Has anyone else noticed

that job-approval polls for Bush haven't been released in a while? I started to think I misremembered them coming out almost every few days last month, until I found this Roper Center stats page, which hasn't charted a poll in two weeks, after charting a half-dozen polls in its last week. That's odd, isn't it? Then again, I'm just waiting for Bush to hit 28 in the Gallup, so I can post FOUR MORE POINTS! FOUR MORE POINTS! FOUR MORE POINTS! It'll be fun, everyone who's not in the backwash left in the national glass will enjoy it.

"Osama's Pizzeria" update: Guilty Guilty Guilty

It's the little Mayberry details in this case that I enjoy the most, like Opie assisting his dad Matlock with the plaintiffs' case. There aren't nearly enough father & son law firms in the big cities for my taste. Anyway:

OWEGO -- A jury awarded two village restaurateurs $200,000 each in damages Thursday night after jurors said the two had been slandered when they were called "terrorists" and "drug dealers" by Owego's police chief.

The jury of six deliberated for about four hours Thursday before reaching a verdict about 7:30 p.m. in state Supreme Court in Tioga County.


I have wonder about the Village Trustee who can't/won't get that a big reason why juries financially spank the government for its abuses is so that they won't do it again. Also, how much money does it take to properly compensate the victim of an informally sanctioned [albeit clumsy, inefficient and lazily racist] whispering campaign? I would hope that such a large award would make it clear how innocent and wronged the victims were -- although, if such corrections of power abuses in the War on Terra continue, it may be just a matter of time until a Talking Point about "Activist Juries" starts circulating. I mean, the people can't hold their leaders accountable for their actions in an open manner consistant with the Rule of Law -- that's just plain UnAmerican.
