Around the Way

Despite what other people might have you believe, Windsor, there are other things going on in the world.

For your viewing pleasure, a documentary on comics scribe Alan Moore, the man who brought you V for Vendetta, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Watchmen. Also one of the most delightfully weird men on the planet. Enjoy.

You may recall a bizarre controversy regarding some guerrilla promotion for the Aqua Teen Huger Force movie, using LiteBrites. You may also recall the city of Boston went a little loco over the whole affair, misconstruing the lighted displays as some sort of terrorist attack on the city.
That was one year ago today. Let us look back, and never forget.

Spent a few minutes watching the Clinton/Obama debate on CNN tonight.
"This is more civilized than I thought it would be," said The Lady.
"Well," I replied, "someone's gonna have to break out and distinguish themselves soon, cause they're starting to seem identical."
Judging from their voting records, that could be easier said than done.

Turns out MySpace might not be the only one suffering from social network burnout. The Register looks at Facebook fatigue.

This is the nerdiest thing in the world. Two sad facts: I know at least three people who will love it. And I scored 7/10.

Something I can recommend for everyone, in honour of my first shift in the kids department tomorrow: Cracked gives us the 10 Best Cartoons for scaring the hell out of children.
