Fight the future
Actually, snorting a solvent-soaked rag will only open your mind to one startling insight: that the snorting wasn't a very good idea.
Even in this confusing modern age -- cheese in a can? -- there are many things that I'm confident you can enjoy.
There is a new Pillows album. It has a very similar feel to their Good Dreams album, which you may recall I heartily endorsed, but it is easily the better of the two discs.
There is season five of 24. Six episodes in, it still hasn't started sucking yet. Maybe the writers try harder for the odd-numbered years than the even-numbered ones. Or maybe it all goes to hell next week. Either way, this first quarter has been 24 at its very best.
There is a (relatively) new collection of Ultimate Spider-man. I love this series. It takes one of my favourite characters and builds him up with the kind of elaborate plotting, extended character arcs and general cohesiveness that only a unchanging creative team can bring. Nearly 100 installments in, Bendis and Bagley are still at the helm, and the series maintains a narrative unity that is incredibly rare in its genre.
And finally, there's DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore, which is one of the best-value books you'll ever see published by DC. For the price of the old Killing Joke and Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow trades alone, you get those two stories and a whole whack of other stuff from one of the most respected writers in comic history. DC's trades tend to be kind of overpriced, but this one is a major steal.
Tune in on Friday for a "very special" edition of Sam and Fuzzy!
