Hoo boy, this is getting good. JMS posted a graph showing that the sales on Amazing Spider-Man have fallen since his departure (and the start of the BND (Brand New Day) status quo) on his Facebook, and needless to say Steve Wacker ain’t too happy about it.
What I find hilarious is how Wacker points out how they had the most successful issue of the last 15 years, but doesn’t mention that it’s the one with Barack Obama on the cover right after he was elected. Anyone want to guess why that was a huge success?
This is a little odd ball for me to post. But I loved the end sentence this man says about the Umbrella Man theory.
Errol Morris put together a new, six-minute documentary for the New York Times. The short takes a brief look at one JFK assassination theory that deals with an umbrella-wielding man whose dark presence caused rampant speculation as to his involvement. But, as Home Alone taught us, just because there’s an ominous old man holding a weapon-like seasonal item, it doesn’t always mean he’s involved in the crime.
As many of you know, the wonderful sitcom Community has been pulled from NBC’s mid-season schedule, which means the show is possibly getting canceled. Which is awful because Community is the greatest show on television.
Here’s one of the MANY reasons why it is:
These three scenes come from different seasons. Someone uttered the word “Beetlejuice” once per season on Community. And if you still aren’t sure why this is awesome, please look at the window behind Annie/Alison Brie when she says the third “Beetlejuice.” As Community creator Dan Harmon tweeted, “The Easter egg that took three years to hide. Our show is TOTALLY ACCESSIBLE.”
*Ahem* ‘Nuff said.
???!!! Bell insisted that “Ahoy!” was the correct way to answer the telephone?
The guy who voiced Mr. Owl in Tootsie Pop cartoons also invented the artificial heart?
Corn Flakes and graham crackers were invented to stop masturbation?
The first touch-screen smartphone was invented in 1993?
Nazis invented the blow-up doll? !!!???

In addition to being a great article, I’m posting this because one of my favorite bloggers linked to this as well and wrote next to it: “Oh brother.”
I sincerely hope I’m misinterpreting her response to the link she posted.
I don’t want this to be the start of a growing hatred towards this woman. I read her stuff because she’s open minded, positive and interesting. But this caption of hers leads me to believe that a lot of her could be fake. I sincerely hope not. I will continue to keep an open mind about her, but, I just ask she does as well.
It’s funny that some people refuse to believe some of these myths aren’t true, even though they’ve been debunked.
I love before and after pictures like this. Make-up <3
I want to hear a whole set jokes that poke fun at rabid meat eaters.
It’s funny, I knew about and played a lot of these. (Did I just age myself?)
This is one of the many reasons I love comics.
This is getting so ridiculous. Dear Hipster Runoff, I miss the old days.
My mind. It is blown.
I was going to write a post on the Megaupload take down and the SOPA/PIPA bill but honestly, I’m tired of repeating myself. And all these posts I’m reading by people are just getting me angry so I’m just going to post a bunch of links and try and calm down and walk away from arguments that arent even worth starting.
All I have to say is, if you believe the law is there to protect you…who will protect you from the law?
The funny thing about this post is, I used to date a girl named Yulia, who is exactly like the description Merlin writes about in this prose.
I miss you Yulia. <3
