Actual content?! SHOCK! HORROR!!!


I'm now a contributor at the livejournal community scans_daily. I've been digging through my brother's comic collection (which includes some Kirby and Ditko story reprints) and there's much crack-tastic stuff within.

I never liked Ben Stein anyway

You've no doubt heard about the new Creationist crapfest "Expelled" and the fact that in order to see it, you have to sign a waiver that basically keeps you from criticizing it. (No Intelligence Allowed, indeed.) You may also be aware that PZ Myers (who was tricked into appearing in it) has been banned from seeing it for no good reason. If not, you do now. There's ongoing coverage of the spin on PZ's blog.

Some unmade films...



Films that SFX company Vincent Guastini Productions worked on that never saw the light of day. Includes some very early concepts for the Cylons of the current Battlestar Galactica series and possibly the only visual evidence of SFX work on the Doom movie before the script was changed.



Unmade Giant Monster Movies.

HERRING AND GRUEL AND PORRIDGE AND MILK!



Amusing rants from a Mario fan. This picture was taken from his site.
Coin Heaven, a now-defunct blog run by another Mario fan.
Polas reviews infamous games. Some bad, some not.
Don't expect Randy Solem-style freakout rants here. The NES reviews are the funniest.
In case you're wondering about this post's header, it's a line taken from a Norwegian fairy tale called "Rumble-Mumble Goose Egg."

Critters Ahoy!

And now, for something serious: Anybody have Biting Beaver's email? Her blog's invite-only, and I miss her posts. :(

Wheeee (sarcasm)

Yeah, this blog isn't very exciting so far. I'm basically using it as a link dump for now.

Yet another Megaten site:
