The Sam and Fuzzy site will be down on Saturday for a few hours, starting at 12 AM EDT, because our server is moving. We'll be back in full force by 8 AM.

Freedom costs a buck o' five

Looking at today's strip really helps remind me why I love working in black and white. Also, it reminds me that I would really like a hat like the one that Fuzzy is wearing.

I'm in the midst of updating the links section, which was so horrendously out-of-date that it was missing well over half of what I'm reading these days. As you can tell, the new version isn't finished yet... next to each link, there are spaces for words that I haven't actually written. It took me long enough just picking one of my favourite images from each comic to use as an icon. As usual, I have taken what should be a simple project and made it way more work than it needs to be. But at least now it has the right comics in it! The descriptions will follow shortly. Are you excited? YES, YES YOU ARE!

Maybe you won't suffer, maybe it's quick

The Sam and Fuzzy message board recieved a bit of a revamp recently. Lots of human beings were starting to post, and as you know, human beings need lots of RULES and STRUCTURE and ARBITRARY CHANGES. So I lept into action. For example, in addition to the "On-Topic" area -- and I'm using the term "on topic" very loosely -- we now have a "Media Room" where you can talk about pretty much anything you can watch, read, play or listen to. And really... aren't we all the better for it? Of course we are.

No matter what colour your political stripes are, you have to admit that Mr. Bush is not really the best at organizing English words into sentences... heck, he admits it himself. Keeping that in mind, this video is pretty interesting to watch. It's worth watching for the clips of the younger, more succinct Bush in action... even if it does go on to make the sketchy claim that Mr. Bush is going senile. Did you know that you could reach such a definitive conclusion using only two video clips? I didn't! But now that I do, I've been busy. After assembling several pairs of clips, here's what I've learned so far:

John Kerry wears suits all the time, even while he sleeps and showers.

Dick Cheney doesn't have any legs.

John Edwards can never stop moving his arms, or he will explode.

Whew! That took five or ten minutes. I'm going to go lie down for awhile. See you all on Friday!

If you want to go, from just a beginner to a pro, you need a MONTAGE

Team America: World Police does so much right. It's a hillarious parody of brainless Bruckheimer films, a clever satire on both sides of the political spectrum, a kingpin of over-the-top gross-out humour... but man, you can not top the songs. When the World Police first blasted out of Mount Rushmore to the tune of "America, F*** Yeah!", I was practically on the floor. "Freedom Isn't Free" and "Montage" are highlights, too. The soundtrack doesn't come out for a couple of weeks, but I'm sure looking forward to it.

Speaking of political humour, Jon Stewart appeared on CNN's Crossfire, and you can watch it online here. I thought Stewart was hillarious, but I hate Crossfire nearly as much as he does. Sometimes, the personalities and arguments on that show are so ridiculsouly black and white that I swear it negates the need for the sitcom Fuzzy developed.
