Confessions of a troubled comic book writer.

There just may be a little justice in the world. Either that or the fates have a twisted sense of humor. There is a movie version of Harvey Pekar’s American Splendor, and it’s kicking up a buzz at Sundance! Maybe this will get Harvey on the new Letterman show. Heh, heh. Good pictures and links here.

IGN: That’s Paul Giamatti in American Splendor

Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?

Who watches the watchmen? Bush wants us to spy on each other. Scariest thing I’ve seen in awhile.

US planning to recruit one in 24 Americans as citizen spies

Electronic Music Discussion on Slashdot

Nice discussion of electronic music for beginners on slashdot this evening. Mostly about recommendations of artists to check out, but also some suggestions of online resources for finding them. If you dig deep enough you will find my recommendation of Sphongle. The gnomes have found a new way to say Hooray!!

Tried to Sell My Soul but Nobody Was Buying

If superherodom (see below) sounds a little goody-goody to you try getting your powers the old fashioned way — selling your soul.

Looking For a Few Good Mutants

Don’t lie, every self respecting geek at one time or another hoped to be struck by lightening, bitten by a radioactive spider, or have some other freakish random accident transform them into something more then human. In short everybody has wanted at some point or another to be a superhero. Personally I began building a crimefighting suit at age 14. Some of old school punk buddies and I used to refer to these fantasies in their most exggerated form as “the superhero madness” and would judge the fiber of new acquaintences by just how baadluy they were infected with the condition.

Well, a few days ago, this guy I know who frequently practices with num-chucks in his front yard and has gotten quite good with them actually, was approached by a shadowy figure in a local bar. “Are you the guy who is also practicing num-chucks on such-and-such street ?” asks the stranger. My friend replies affirmatively. The stranger proceeds to hand him a business card with this url on it.

“Check it out,” the guy says,”We could use a guy like you.”
