everyone's favorite gamegeek comic strip(well, not everyone's
, but mine) is facing legal action over a recent strip they did, parodying Strawberry Shortcake. It seems American Greetings
owner of such 80s icons as Popples and the aforementioned Shortcake, don't take too kindly to folks using their precious nostalgia.
the offending cartoon.

A simple, absolutely perfect short comic
about musician/artist/music producer Brian Eno
(by cartoonist Tom Hart
). If this puts you in the mood, why not draw wisdom from one of Eno's (and artist Paul Schmidt's) Oblique Strategies
. Click (or refresh if clicking doesn't work)
for a new aphorism, like shuffling a Tarot deck and drawing a new card. "Honour thy error as a hidden intention" is one of my favorites. (More inside for anyone still interested.)

Which Jerkcity Character are you?
The personality test to end all others. PLUS: although it only has a few entries so far, rands' blog is looking really great
. In case you didn't know, Jerkcity
is a daily comic strip enjoyed by all the cool people on the internet, similar to the weekly Hotendotey
(a comic strip by Ecco the cat, who "does anal") but with more mechanical production, more Perl/TCL jokes, and more references to hlauaghaghgah. Please note that you cannot be 1337 if you like RedMeat. This post is dedicated to Quonsar The Magnificent and all other truly 1337 mefiers willing to stand up for what is right. Remember: argument's are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Apparently Newsday and NY's Daily News has pulled 'The Boondocks' cartoons because they may be... eh... too controversial? Perhaps "unamerican" to some? I understand these are difficult times where everyone feels vulnerable and suspicious, but nonetheless, the issues are worth addressing. Does expressing one's views and dissatisfaction with the government make you automatically unsymapthetic and unpatriotic? I can't pretend to understand what it's like to be a New Yorker over this last month, but I do think I would like to hear all perspectives, regardless of how potentially offensive or analytically critical they were.
