All the lies lie on the line

Fan art gallery... updated. There's a ton of new stuff in there, including some find birthday-related picks from Claire "I made a Skull Panda" Barry and Brian "I have a webcomic about movies" Carroll. Check it out!

Incidently, if I have told you that your fan art is going in the gallery, but it is still not in there, it is because I am disorganized, not because I am filthy with lies. If I have forgotten your work, a) I'm sorry, and b) please email me. Rocksome.

There is a new Zebrahead CD! It has only officially been released in Japan (where the band is actually popular), but fortunately, it can also be nabbed through the band's website. Basically, it is a collection of tracks that the band recorded during the same sessions that brought us MFZB, one of my favourite CDs of 2003. If I can be permitted to mix a few metaphors for a moment, I'd like to say that Zebrahead is the silver lining of the current pop-punk cloud of steaming crap. If you like MFZB, you're going to like the new album... it is quite literally more of the same.

Actress model dancer whatever

Newer readers might be unfamiliar with Roger, but a click on a hyperlink can change all that.

I've been playing a lot of The Simpsons Hit and Run lately. Somehow, even though it is a shameless rip-off of the Grand Theft Auto series, and even though it is a videogame based off of The Simpsons (never a good sign), it is actually pretty amusing. It's certainly loaded with plenty of references to the television show, most of which I can recognize even though it's been years since I watched it.

The sequel to the source material, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, is looming on the horizon. It freaks me out, not because of all the usual controversies surrounding the series, but because its early-ninties setting makes me feel old. Sure, there was Vice City, but I was only seven-and-a-half when the 1980s ended. The only eighties pop-culture I experienced directly was Saturday-morning cartoons. But the ninties... man, I was there for the nineties, right from the very beginning. It might as well have been the ninties for my entire life, for all I knew. And now, it's a time period far enough away that people can actually talk about "accurately recreating" its look and feel in some video game. CREEPY, HUH?

When all that you had don't seem so much

To help Chris Bishop celebrate his birthday, I have done a short guest strip for his excellent webcomic, Her: Girl Vs. Pig! You can check out my strip right here. It's funnier if you've actually read through the entire Her archives, which I heartily recommend doing. However, if you're pressed for time, the strip is also summarized adeptly in the incredible, epic, show-stealing guest strip by the amazing Ryan Estrada. Damn good stuff!

Not much else to report today. I got my copy of the second Invader Zim DVD this week, which is all well and good, but it's the third volume that I'm really looking forward to. I can't wait to see that uncut, never-before-aired version of the Chirstmas Special... from what I hear, they edited the hell out of it before it went on air.
