Should I hold a cigarette, snicker, and say “You fools! NO ONE can stop me now! MWA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAA!!!”

Okay. Yesterday’s debacle is behind us. But I’ve entered a new stage of my Evil Plan, and there are some people here who might not know of which I speak. And I should probably link to the strips in question to maximize the chances of my Evil Plan working. So. Here’s Penny Arcade, and here’s […]

What. The. BLEEP?

So I just got done writing the post below about Websnark and I’m heading over to my mail service to make sure its proprietor is checking the accompanying strip because my life is self-promotion. I suck. So imagine my surprise when I see, on Yahoo Mail’s list of headlines, this. What the bleep? What the […]

This post rambles on for ages and ends up going nowhere. I think I need a biscuit.

Prelude: At one point, when I was very young, before I had an e-mail address, I would occasionally use my mom’s e-mail account to give certain people a piece of my mind. Hey, I didn’t have anything else to work with. I would end up lectured as much for their content as for the act […]

For the record.

I’ve been trying to bring myself to write a post for a while now. Check that: several posts. On a couple different topics. And doing other things, like exerting some effort into finding a job at some point. Every time I’ve tried, I’ve gotten sidetracked. The most work-free way I have to connect to the […]

Sports Watcher for the Weekend of 6/21-22 (UPDATED)

All times PDT. Sorry about the bare bones nature of this when it first went up! Saturday11:30-2 PM: UEFA Soccer, Euro 2008, Netherlands v. Russia (ABC). Because Dad will kill me if I don’t mention this. There is something very interesting about this quarterfinal game, which I will mention next week. 4-7 PM: College baseball, […]

Truth! What a concept!

I’m not doing any more editions of the News You Can Use feature, unless of course someone paid me for it. It’s another great idea that I think someone should take up as long as it’s not me (like the NFL SuperPower Rankings). The next evolution of it might be something akin to a webcast […]

News You Can Use for June 18

IMPORTANT NOTE: These headlines are applicable to June 18, 2008, and may be out of date. If you’ve watched the (national) news today, demand that they cover THESE headlines before ANY filler (and comment if there are some I missed yet): China yuan hits new high against US dollar Bali bomber warns of al-Qaida attacks […]

News You Can Use for June 17

In the Internet circles I often find myself in, I often hear about how terrible the news media is today, even outside the accusations of bias. So I thought about starting a feature where I run down the top 25 stories of the day that you should know, with no fluff or filler. Think of […]

Sports Watcher for the Weekend of 6/14-15

All times PDT. Saturday8:50-11 AM: UEFA Soccer, Euro 2008, Sweden v. Spain (ESPN2). Because my dad will kill me if I don’t mention this quickly. 1-3 PM: College track and field, national championship (CBS). I find it strange that not all NCAA Championships are on TV somewhere. The real surprise was finding out that the […]

Apologies for the lateness of today’s strip

The Internet connection I usually use is not working properly. I will probably move the post time back a few hours at a time until we’re back to normal, and from now on I will do everything in my power to get the strip out in a timely manner if the problem is a bad […]
