Links and Stuff

Comic Book Urban Legends Revealed #158: Neil Gaiman, Chris Claremont, John Byrne, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Frank Miller, and Alan Moore. Yea, seven items instead of the usual three.

Man, I've always wanted to read Prince Valiant from the start, and now Fantagraphics is reprinting them. Maybe I should start requesting them from the library to make sure my library system buys them.

Cheyenne is back.

Take a look at 10 Star Wars posters from Japan. There are some visual treats in there, along with a couple of "What were they thinking?"

I don't care if people are sick of steampunk, I love the steampunk Dalek.

If you didn't catch all the internet references in Weezer's Pork and Beans video, the wikipedia article for the song now lists them, along with handy links to most of them so you can check out the originals.

Here's an amusing and short story. Very short.

Belief in the moon landing: how education can rid children of stupid anti-science views.

This is almost enough to make me eat at McDonalds. Almost.

Fox "News" equals gullible. Seriously, if they can't even do basic fact-checking, they don't deserve to call themselves a news channel. Only an entertainment channel would run a story as poorly-sourced as that one.

McCain would continue Bush's illegal wiretapping of US citizens.

Hey, there's a restaurant I won't go to, if only because the owner has to be a moron for not praising the employee and letting all his customers know about the wonderful thing she'd done for charity.

Guy pretends to be a Seattle Sonic. WHY? Eh, he can't be much worse at the game than the current players.

I really should collect all the examples of LOLCats theology.

Pug for the in-laws.

And lastly, if you have a few bucks and want to fight breast cancer, please donate to support us in the Race for the Cure: Laura Gjovaag, Eric Gjovaag, or Lisa Dunham (my suggested donation is $5 to each of us, if you have $15 to spare, or $5 to one of us (flip a 3-sided coin) if you're poor like me).
