For Leslie

Llama School has been watching an unhealthy amount of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, so here's something for Leslie:

This is the end of an episode where the friends dress as toiletry items to save Bloo from having to portray a stick of deodorant on a live variety show. Foster's is awesome.

Hey, last night's House featured MARC BLUCAS, who devotees will know is the star of Emory's and my reality series Code: Bluc!. It is always nice to see him.

Also, House writers. Please stop portraying Jennifer Morrison as a pouty sex kitten, because it is totally distracting.

Old people

Tomorrow my sister will be 34. In six months I'll be 28.


(and why did Blogger refuse to put up the text of this post earlier today?)

An observation

It is alarming how similar the wrestling industry is to the comics industry.

Those Tomlin/Russell videos

See, I knew that production doc was too cheery.

More new comics

Yes, High-Quality Erotic Art continues over at The Atrox, and since my personal blog is non-kayfabe, I can assure that despite the racy title, HQEA is as safe for work as anything else on the site (by which I of course mean no actual penetration is shown).

Your weekend in movies

Sure, 300 will have two hours of dudes yelling and stabbing each other (since that's all the comic is, really, along with Miller's unique brand of macho posturing), but if you have the chance, the movie you should really check out this weekend is The Host. That movie's awesome. It's about a family of losers who reunite in order to save their only child from a horrible monster. Emory snagged an import of it from Drunken Master awhile ago, so I've already seen it, and I guarantee that it's a delight.

Various goings-on

There's a new High-Quality Erotic Art up at The Lair. Yes, different than yesterday's.

Uh, I guess things have been happening? And I've been around for them? Last weekend we shot the footage for another new Atrox short, and I think it will come out quite nicely. Thanks to everyone who came over and helped out by drinking and socializing. I've been much less involved with the last two shorts, but that's just fine by me. I had plenty of input on our first batch.

We also saw Zodiac last weekend and I quite enjoyed it.

Work's been busier than usual. Lots of new contracts piling up.

Still haven't watched the mystery finale of Veronica Mars. Or this week's supposedly awesome House. But Heroes has been kicking ass, and 24 continues to be a good time. When will Jack learn to stay out of consulates and embassies and the like? He's just going to wind up in a foreign prison again.

I guess that's about it. See why I don't update much anymore?

High-Quality Erotic Art

Yes, that's the title of my new comic debuting over at The Atrox. The first few strips will feature Badly-Drawn Atrox, but he'll soon be replaced by other characters and situations. Long-time devotees should probably expect some Rama.

I'll probably start using a font to letter the strip in the not-too-distant future, since my handwriting's atrocious and unlike Leslie I don't think the kids in Portland won't respect me unless I hand-letter.

This strip, by its very existence, declares war on the concept of "art." Enjoy.

James McAvoy

James McAvoy, you are ON NOTICE. After being a black hole of suck as Mr. Tumnus in Narnia, I decided to give you a second chance by seeing Starter for 10 with Frank the other night. Perhaps you would be better in a coming-of-age-at-University movie, rather than prancing around a forest with no shirt? But then the movie turned out to be bad, and you, while certainly better than in Narnia, were still annoying. The fact that you are apparently in every movie coming out over the next six months not only worries me, but irritates me. I can just hear Liz saying "But you need to see Last King of Scotland!" And while I still have yet to see that movie, are you so good in it as to make up for two, count 'em, TWO strikes? I doubt it. Watch your back, McAvoy.

So yeah, Starter for 10 is a bit crap. Frank and I were lured in by the coming-of-age-at-University promise, but the whole thing is incredibly by-the-numbers. I did like that so much of the plot revolved around "University Challenge," since that made me think of the "Bambi" episode of The Young Ones, but the movie's weak. Go read Tom Perrotta's Joe College instead, and hope they make a faithful adapatation of that. The last two Perrotta adaptations came out okay, right?

One thing seeing the movie did for me was to solve the mystery of those "Brian Jackson Knows EVERYTHING!" banners hanging around various parts of town (there's one up at DeLongpre and Highland). So if you see one of those, it's from this movie, and the movie is bad.
