Truly, the end of an era. Hopefully, not of the earth.

If I’m going to give my critical thinking skills a workout, I need to give my critical thinking skills a workout. And since I hope to do a lot of thinking over the course of my life, this should be an important and positive excersize for me. So you know what? I don’t care anymore […]

I’m sure the only reason the pigs aren’t airborne is because it’s heavy overcast.

Day 94 of the BottomLine watch. Over three months since an ESPN spokesperson told Sports Media Watch the new BottomLine would be back “soon”. I’m starting to think it may not come back at all, or at the very least it’ll probably be another six months… …what’s that? What’s that thing at the bottom of […]

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

I’m linking to this even though I’m not sure how useful it would be (I use an Excel spreadsheet as a “checkbook” of sorts) and I’m announcing right now that this will be the last RID under the status quo. That sort of violates the Da Blog Poll, on which the only vote I received […]

Hilarity in cereal tie-ins.

So today I finish off a box of Frosted Mini-Wheats and I happen to notice the giveaway on the back of the box. As a tie-in for the Star Trek movie, it allows you to send in for a “Starfleet T-shirt” so you can look like you’re on the Starship Enterprise. The shirts are available […]

Draft Image Upload seems to be back in proper working order, at least in Chrome, not that it’ll help Blogger that much.

(From The Order of the Stick. Click for full-sized harmless moments.) This post is really an excuse to talk about the two prior strips. After all, I’ve been sorely remiss in not posting on #665, which at long last returned Roy to the land of the living. Not only did Roy originally die in #443, […]

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

Okay, right as I’m moved to ditch the RID entirely, I finally find something worth commenting on. Because this is pretty much pseudoscience. First of all, I kind of doubt the underlying idea that cravings for certain types of food are really cravings for the things those foods contain. Especially when one of the claims […]

This isn’t about the past. This is about the future.

One year ago last week, I began doing webcomic reviews on Da Blog. Recently, I’ve been having a crisis of confidence about the whole enterprise. This should be obvious enough to anyone who read my 8-Bit Theater review. Quite frankly, I completely stalled while writing it. I found myself trapped in a place where I […]

The people you meet when you Twitter.

I know, I know, follower counts are really meaningless, but it’s still exciting to see my follower count rise over 60. Yes, some of them are spammer accounts, and some are semi-automated accounts that automatically follow anyone who follows them, but there are still enough legit ones that I suspect quite a few of them, […]

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

Is it a bad sign when (I believe) two consecutive posts are spent on the RID? Is it also a bad sign that I couldn’t think of anything else to say about this? Save the RID, please! If the current results hold – they’re currently for maintaining the status quo – I think this may […]

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

It’d be nice if this told you what it is before throwing you into it. The current RID poll is likely to end on Monday regardless of when it says it’s going to end, simply because the changes that will happen to Da Blog then are too major.
