Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane

You know, despite all the flak frequently aimed at the big green K, there's no arguing that they have picked up some great strips lately. Skirting Danger is wonderful. It's sharply written and the artwork is probably exactly the sort that you would expect I would like. Seriously, just look at it. Isn't it good? Aren't you a better person for having seen it? It is, and you are.

After giving it the old one-month-read test, I've concluded that Sore Thumbs is good stuff too, even if the concept -- a large breasted anime girl working in a video game store -- sounds like something generated by a webcomic marketing committee. "Can you make the boobs bigger, and maybe throw some gamer humour in there?" Why yes, they could.

It feels like somebody else's lights came on

I finally saw Bubba Hotep last night, and it was fantastic. To summarize for those who haven't heard of it, Bubba Hotep is a movie where Bruce "don't call me Ash" Campbell stars as an living, elderly Elvis and battles a zombie mummy. Naturally, I went in expecting good things and was not disappointed.

What I was not expecting was an Elvis that was a developed, three-dimensional character rather than just a one-liner-delivering caricature. Bruce Campbell's Elvis is a man burdened with regrets and frustrated about the realities of aging. It was startling to see the whole Elvis-is-still-alive bit played so straight and so compellingly, especially in what is otherwise a pretty light, goofy movie. Much like, say, Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Carribean, this is the sort of bizarre-but-brilliant performance that you really need to see to believe. Don't miss this film.

Link fill up your hearts

Scary Go Round has returned after a mild case of server explosion. Four out of five experts agree that server explosion is the number one cause of hair loss among webcartoonists.

One of my favourite webcomics, Girly, just turned one-year-old yesterday. If you haven't already read Girly, now is a good time to head over and catch up on a year's worth of awesome.

Speaking of anniversaries, Sam and Fuzzy is approaching its two-year in about a month-and-a-half. I don't have anything special planned comic-wise, but we could always sacrafice some sort of animal to the dark lord Atheia.
