what did people do before photoshop?

I guess when our valiant author was in school, they just called it "homosexual oral congress"? If they called it anything.


(also kinda awkward)

"Godspeed owes me two hours of my life back."

David Segal, formerly the Post's concert-guy, writes about his experiences. If only their website had his laments about Broken Social Scene's live show, they were pretty funny.

I think.

a word or two

What? I'm not dead! I was just gone for two weeks! Then... another two! and another two! and one! Yes!

But with that out of the way, there's a new Broken Social Scene song floating around, I guess? It's... smoother than the stuff off "You Forgot It In People," and the guitars are very pretty &c &c &c.

AND MORE IMPORTANTLY there is a new e.p. by Sweden's Suburban Kids With Biblical Names coming out and (of course) the first song around on the internets is about Christmas! Hooray!

For those of you who don't know (EVERYONE READING THIS VERY WORD,) for a while back last summer I was pretty obsessed with these guys! I thought they were pretty good! They did not have a video yet, though.

But oh! What Providence!

Well, I guess Colin Meloy dosen't have to wonder that much about how to survive inside a whale: h2g2's got an article on just the thing.

It still dosen't answer my question, though - where does one survive? Is the stomach of a whale filled with air? I sort of inferred that, from the Star of the East's tale, but still... what?

Also: just what is the feasibility of digging a grave in a whale's stomach?

Increment By Increment...

How is it that I never saw this page before?

"Remember Me" is pretty fun for a video, but the other two are sort of "eh" - creepy and spooky, but not terrifically riveting. Even "Carrion," probably my favorite song of theirs, just sorta made me want to minimize and listen to it.

Unlike, say, this!

What sort of a name is "Otaku House," though? I mean, if you're trying to get ahead in the whole movie-making deal that is.

Hot, Tasty Melted Butter

"Save the Crabs... Then Eat 'Em" is the Chesapeake Bay Program's new ad campaign against fertilizer runoff into the (Chesapeake, duh) Bay. Offensive to vegetarians? Maybe. Pretty Rad? Yes. Plus, it's an ad campaing against fertilizer runoff - have they done that before? Certainly not this well. I've not seen it yet, inter-nets, but you know that now I've got to watch for it.

(DCist's take on this)

Also: holy crap, an update!

Don't worry, she isn't really William Jennings Bryan

Dorthy "The Slickest Merchandise In Webcomics" Grambell is now updating Cat & Girl twice a week! (the traditional Tuesdays plus new Fridays) And to kick it off, the latest one is her funniest piece in a long while.

Everybody sing along, Rivers-style!
