Hoooya!


New readers who haven't had a chance to read through the archives may not be familiar with Carlyle. Actually, I would imagine that most of the readers today fall in that category, since the fine folks at MacHall kindly decided to link to me yesterday. If you're confused, you might want to have a glance at these three strips.


In other news, TNN, the world's first "men's" television station, has decided to do one thing right -- they have brought back John K to create new episodes of Ren and Stimpy! It airs on Thursday nights as part of TNN's adult animation block, which also includes the smart-but-poorly-animated Gary the Rat and the well-animated-but-extremely-stupid Stripperella. Free of the restrictions of children's television, the new Ren and Stimpy goes someplace very different from the old. I'm not even sure if I like it. Ren and Stimpy was never an innocent cartoon, but compared to the new show, it was practically Full House. Watching the new episode last night was nearly as jarring as it would be if Warner Brothers made a new Roadrunner cartoon where the Coyote smokes a few joints and then has sex with the Roadrunner. Also, for reasons inexplicable, Ren and Stimpy were both very, very small for the entire episode. I'm very curious to see what the second episode is like!


Between this and Keen Eddie, I am now watching more TV per week than I have in YEARS.

I'll never be...


I am back from Vancouver! On the way home, I ran into an old friend on the bus. Unfortunately, I didn't notice her until I was just heading out the door, so I really only got to yell hello before the bus pulled off. I think she said she would email me, and I hope she does. I wonder if she actually has my email address! I also wonder if she still has this comic on her POLI 202 clipboard.


Reel Big Fish was fantastic. Go see them! DO IT!


A sort of quasi-big announcement regarding this fine site is coming! Shiver! Shiver in anticipation! Don't worry, it isn't anything bad.


Cheers, ya'll.

Or should I say... Catherine the SO SO?


Today's newspost comes to you LIVE from the city of Vancouver, as tonight, I am going to see Reel Big Fish and Zebrahead!


Vancouver is is a fantastic place to shop for anyone with a taste for Japanese pop culture. I've already picked up the Jet Set Radio and Jet Set Radio Future soundtracks, and while I haven't found any Pillows CDs yet, hope springs eternal! Also, check out the keen loot that my girlfriend got me when she was here on Friday!


Also, you should definately take a look at the fine webcomic Coffee Brain if you've got a moment. Try the lobster!
