I’ve been remiss in so many ways…

For example, I’ve posted not a single one of the essays I’ve written recently. Nor have I given you a rundown on what I did last weekend (something you might actually find interesting). And then there’s the whole missing Lovecraft thing… Well, as to the former, I will try to find time soon. And the …

One way to deal with those dumb Coraline reviews

I guess I am behind the times again.

Joey deVilla says “Blogging Has Officially Jumped the Shark“. And he has pictures to prove it! (As Anita pointed out, The Comics Curmudgeon should have been all over this.) Funny, but jkling told me the other day that he didn’t know what ‘Jumping the Shark‘ meant. Until someone reminded him about the Happy Days episode …

More imaginary performance anxiety

Warren Ellis is writing a new graphic novel set in the near future. Cool! I’ve certainly enjoyed his previous forays into science fiction and cyberpunk.
