All-Purpose

Can you believe that politician? How do these guys think they can get away with this stuff? That party is always pulling crap like this. Throw the bums out!

And that movie star is at it again. When is he gonna learn? It's like, hello? Time to start living right, big guy.

What in the world was that pop star wearing at that awards ceremony? Doesn't she pay a whole team of people lots of money to make her look good? Did they go on strike?

My favorite TV show just isn't the same lately. It's like they're just going through the motions. Everybody's still watching it, so I guess they must be doing something right. But it's just not the same as it was.

The thing that one blogger said was stupid and dumb. Get a clue, jerk.

A member of the mainstream media made a mistake. Stop stealing your paycheck, member of the mainstream media!

Tipjar on the right.

Today's challenge:

Find one thing that makes you laugh in this week's edition of The Onion. Or last week's. Or the one before that. Or, if necessary, the one before that. (That's as far back as the public archives go.) Report your finding in the comments, with hyperlink.

Get to work!

Three new blogs

Positive Ape Index is a blog started by "Devil Girl" artist COOP, whose stickers you're familiar with if you've ever seen a skateboard. He has lots of money from selling stickers, and if you go to his blog he will show you what he does with the money.

Dave's Long Box is a comics blog, and-- wait, come back! It's okay, really. This one's funny. Not Cory Doctorow "funny," but actually funny. Dave goes through his collection, from the '60s to today, and rips it a new one.

Finally, epicurean and Achewood artist Chris Onstad has a new blog. I mean baby. Chris Onstad has a new baby. His wife, his wife had the baby. He stood around and thought up metaphors. Anyway, just like all new parents, all he can talk about is the new baby, but unlike most new parents, he is not dead boring.

How to succeed in blogs without really trying

So I post something ever third day or so, and even that's half-assed. And yet my traffic's pretty much holding steady, my Technorati rating is actually going up, and I've got a couple of ads (which is a couple more than usual). You people are trying to tell me something, aren't you?

Sin City

marv.JPGI'm torn on this one, folks. I liked it a lot, and yet I agree with the reviews that say it's too long and too much of the same thing over and over. They tried to squeeze 5-odd years of Frank Miller's id into 2 hours, and they really did do it as faithfully as possible, but maybe that's the problem.

However, it didn't give me a damn headache like Sky Captain, and it had 100% more Carla Gugino's ass. It's an amazing technical achievement, Mickey Rourke gave his most entertaining performance since Point Blank, the Frodo-Fu was awesome, and Jessica Alba proved that even though she was totally outacted by the girl who played the younger version of her character, she's a lot better at filling out a pair of chaps. Oh, and Nicky Katt stole the show again, just like he did in The Limey.

After the last two Robocop movies and the Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot mess, I'm glad Frank Miller is finally getting his due in Hollywood. Just in time, too, because it's not like he's getting any better at drawing. The last Frank Miller comic I read looked like he'd scratched it out with a burnt cork while driving.

If you want to read some stuff by people who actually put some thought into it, Tom Spurgeon has the full Sin City link roundup.
