Don’t Write In Ron Paul. Choose ALF for President in 2008

Don’t write in Ron Paul for US President in 2008. Instead, choose your own president and let internet democracy become a reality this fall!

Choose from such qualified candidates as Wilford Brimley, Chuck Norris, David Hasselhoff and the 1985 Chicago Bears!

So log on and let your choice be heard. It will make you feel better about not voting in the election this fall.

George Carlin: RIP

George Carlin died yesterday, and even though I am an internet asshole, I felt sad.

George Carlin

Not because I knew him personally, but because I was a fan. And because the world will sorely miss his wit and whimsy.

Carlin had everything a comedian could want.

A keen ear for language, a metronomic sense of timing, a loathing of mediocrity and two-faced apathy that typifies much of modern culture. George Carlin was a gleeful anarchist, a sardonic and merry prankster who forced the world to look at the ridiculous pose it too often affected. Carlin moved the boundaries of American Comedy beyond Lenny Bruce.

He made pot jokes in the guise of a hippie weatherman.

He questioned censorship in those 7 famous words you can’t say on television.

He taught me to question the God of my Father. And made me laugh, in spite of the pain.

Rest In Peace, George. We’ll keep laughing, but it won’t be the same without you.

Eye Scapes

Ran into this page over at the art-dept.com.

Eye Scape

It’s called Eye Scapes, and it is in Rankin’s portfolio. Don’t know too many details, except that it seems to be following me around the room.

Eye Scape

Go check it out and thank me later.

Web Comics Thursday

OK, Web Comics Friday, for those of you keeping score at home.

Apologies for not posting too much at all in the past week. I have been horribly sick and busy with IRL nonsense. Tis the season, right?

Anyway, ran into Buttersafe and just about lost my ish laughing.

Call me a heretic, but this is better than cyanide.

My Little Glue Factory

Caught this here and decided it was, indeed, awesome.

My Little Pony Glue Factory

Who knew that a toy service station and a grip of tiny ponies could bring so much joy to so many people?

Consider this my gift to Humanity this Holiday Season. There is no return receipt.

In closing, I have to sit and wonder if the furries will flip out over this binary plush destruction like they flipped out over this post back in the day.

Bizarre Online Gaming Incidents

DailyBits has a great post about the most bizarre online gaming incidents.

It’s really worth the click and the read, but more than a few of the entries include real world shenanigans, like murder, IRL death (as a result of over-playing) and kidnapping.

My own most bizarre online incident involved marathon battle-tetris and some spilled Mountain Dew, but that is a tale for another day.

Velociraptor: The Hidden Menace

According to the Internet, Velociraptor attacks are the 3rd leading cause of death for men age 27-29. This troubling crime is actually on the rise, and more innocent people will lose their life this year because they didn’t have the facts surrounding the raptor menace.

The American Society for Velociraptor Attack Prevention is dedicated to educating Americans about the very real dangers of Velociraptor attacks. Canadians and Mexicans are, apparently, out of luck. The ASVAP website is very informative and lists many useful facts including: “Velociraptors do not know fear.”

They even have a helpful graph that shows the comparative sizes of humans and raptors.

So spread the word and keep yourself velociraptor free this holiday sesason.

Top Ten Bizarre Literary Deaths

I ran into this great post over at Alternative Reel today.

It profiles the ten most bizarre literary deaths, including Ambrose Bierce and Leo Tolstoy.

bierce.jpg

From The Page:

Ambrose Bierce disappeared in Mexico while reporting on Pancho Villa’s rebellion. May have been murdered by bandits.

The list is great, but fails to mention Ernest Hemingway’s final act of cowardice, and Sylvia Plath’s quasi-successful attempt at head casserole.

Your cocktail party conversations just got way mo’ better.

Web Comics Thursday

My insane completely rational plan to take over the internet is coming along nicely. Traffic is up, and the horrid LOLCAT regime is quaking in their adorable yet evil boots. And I owe it all to my fantastically awesome writing you, my awesome readers. So keep checking back, tell your friends, and a little link love wouldn’t kill you, for Pete’s Sake.

Here are some awesome web comics that I hope you like as much as I do.

We The Robots is on point – well drawn and colorful panels with punch-lines that hit more often than not.

And Lucid TV is officially out of control. Like Rex Morgan merged with Kafka, this strip is stunning front to back.
