...I swear I heard the Shelby say, "Cut the baby down, fleshbag."

Seanbaby returns with another of his priceless anti-robot rants.

Dear lord, but this guy makes me laugh. I think the Hostess Pie page comments are some of the most consistently hysterical prose I've ever read, and yet I've never found another person who feels quite as amused by it. Ah well, damn subjective humor!!

Seanbaby makes me laugh alright, but he always seems a bit weak next to the long-lost Erik of OMM (the only remaining bit of his I can find is on seanbaby's site.

Old Man, where are you when we need you?

and now seanbaby actually has a paying regular gig writing these articles for The Wave (a new-ish Bay Area entertainment paper.) he does 2 a week for them, including a regular video review column.

Old Man Murray is supposedly coming back at some point in the future. I base this on the message "OMM COMING BACK" which is pretty much all there is at oldmanmurray.com. Also the domain reg has about a year to run. Of course, Erik'n'Chet promised regular updates back in December, so who knows if there will ever actually be anything there.

Actually, does anyone out there know?

So what?

My favorite part of E3 was always Sean and Erik's multi-page, illustrated E3 Report until Erik was killed or something, possibly by rogue robot toilets, perhaps.

So what?

So nothing. Interesting/funny link that many people probably haven't seen. Didn't expect a whole lot of discussion. Sorta like this. Okay?

Except I didn't plug someone's shitty personal site.

Seems like calling anything on here shitty is as objective as the humor you might/might not have found in the link posted here.

Gracious. I stand chastened. Only NYT and Reuters links from now on.
posted by PinkStainlessTail at 2:21 PM on August 14, 2002


Yes, by all means donkeyschlong, more links to NY Times articles, less to out-of-the-way, personal, or cult web sites people might not know about!

Sheesh, the NewsFi mentality has gotten so bad its the standard.

Sorry, but you're begging for a snark here. What exactly did you hope for with the "So What?" comment, eh?

I hadn't seen that, PickStainlessTail, thanks. I would much prefer a Seanbaby or (we might pray) OMM link to another frickin' IP / AOE story...

This guy lives close to me. How weird......

I only surf the internet for two things. The first: hard news and the second is Seanbaby.com updates.

Seriously, I find the internet useful for getting vital news that falls through the cracks. I wouldn't rely on it as my only source of news no more than I would rely on television. The internet is useful as a means of tapping into the collective unconscious. But if you want rich and creamy hard news, listen to NPR. I want my Seanbaby.com.

I'm a big fan of seanbaby.com, have been for a while. So I've seen this, but I still love it. And I do appreciate his work-- the Hostess stuff is great, but I also love the NES stuff as well as the "Trip to Cleveland" article.

Seanbaby is excellent, excellent stuff. I'm continually amazed that some jackass from my town manages to consistently be funny enough to make me laugh out loud. I had to take breaks while reading through his NES pages to, y'know, resume breathing.

I can dig if you don't really like the stuff, donkeyschlong, but, yeah, shitting all over it seems, I dunno, silly.

What?! this isn't fiction, this is news, we must stop the robot army now!

Anyway, great link pink.. it got me laughing at least.
