Dumm

Did you know: a fine selection of extremely gorgeous cartoons can be found at Dumm Comics, a webcomic collective populated by several super-talented animation vets. Where would we be without the likes of Skadi and Through the Port-Hole brightening our internet experience? Nowhere good, my friend. Nowhere good.

Who watches

I'm still not sure how I feel about the Watchmen film, but one thing is for sure -- the publicity definitely seems to have gotten a lot of folks reading the original book! I saw no less than nine copies of that distinct yellow paperback this weekend alone -- five on prominent display in bookstore windows, and four in the hands of captivated-looking strangers in various random locations. But I suppose it's no surprise, considering the huge increase in orders being placed by retailers over the last month or two.

I don't think I've ever seen a comic movie renew so much interest in the book on which it was based... not even the previous film adaptations of Moore's work. But personally, I'm just glad that this surge of new comic readers is being directed towards one of the medium's greatest classics, and not something like... I don't know... Uncle Funny Bunny and Chumpy.

Deck my back with pins

Gigantic congratulations to my friends Jeph and Cristi, who totally got married this week! I'm just sorry I couldn't be there for it... but then again, maybe that was for my own good.

For a (presumably) limited time, Ben Folds is streaming his entire new album on his MySpace page. There's a lot to like on there, but personally, it's Dr Yang and Kylie from Connecticut that I can't stop listening to. They're two very different songs that that find Folds at the best of both his favourite extremes -- or is that excesses? Either way... applause!
