He took a trip and climbed a tree

A Lesson is Learned but the Damage is Irreversible is one of the best new webcomics I've seen in ages. Immediately, you'll be struck by the unique, gorgeously crafted artwork, but after reading a few strips, you'll also see that it is bloody hillarious. This strip is a perfect example. I love it!

A portion of the pilot for American Dad, the upcoming animated series from Seth "Family Guy" Macfarlane, is available to watch on the official website. This is probably old news to a lot of you, but it wasn't to me, so I thought it was worth mentioning here. It's certainly worth checking out, but with only a few minutes of pilot-quality footage, it's hard to tell whether or not this show will be sufficiently different from Family Guy to stand on it's own for long. The premise has potential, at least!

You want to live like common people

It's always interesting to hear an old song covered in a different style by a current artist, but it can certainly result in some strange music. Take, for example, this cover of Pulp's "Common People" by William freaking Shatner. Joe Jackson is in there, too, and Ben Folds produced the track.

It's taken from Shatner's forthcoming "Has Been" album. Most of the tracks will actually be originals -- with music by Folds, lyrics by Shatner and a veritable barrage of famous and infamous guest musicians. It sounds completely bizarre, but I'm a huge Ben Folds fan, and I can't deny the oddly compelling nature of Shatner's voice on "Common People." It's certainly a step up from his version of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."

You can't build your house on this shaky ground

Lots of people seem to like Wednesday's strip. I'm glad so many folks enjoyed it, because it makes me feel less guilty for perpetrating something so weird on you with today's comic. It's never funny to use your comic to criticize other comics, but is it funny to use your comic to criticize comics that criticize comics? That's some heavy stuff, man. Or not.

Once again, I find myself updating the site a few hours earlier than I normally do in order to avoid having to boot up the computer later tonight. Ashton is working on something that will allow the site to update itself automatically at a certain time, but until then, I'm still doing it manually. Woo!

And yes, it's the last day to order I'm Communism shirts until November! OMG!
