perpetua: jeffbaum: Chris Matthews runs an Anti Baby-Boomer George Carlin bit, followed by a “Just for Men” ad that is, too perfectly, EXACTLY what he was bitching about. Ha, this is so perfect that I’m convinced that the entire reason Matthews aired that particular Carlin bit was because he hated that sponsor/ad.

A good interview with one of my favorite authors. I saw him at a party associated with the book conference he mentions, but was too intimidated to go introduce myself. Sorry, Mr. Everett, and thank you for signing your books for me.

Kind of like Tivo…probably not as good (and no sports, although that wouldn’t bother me too much). I’m surprised I found this through somewhere other than Netflix - it seems like they would really want to push it (especially since their online Instant Watch deal isn’t compatible with Macs, and not so great anyways, from what I hear). All in all I’m pretty...

More online comics! Dash Shaw has a recent book out called Bottomless Belly Button, which intrigued me when I saw it at my local comic shop of choice, and will probably now end up buying, after having read this profile.

Kevin H. is a comics artist I’ve discovered lately. He has a series coming out named “Ganges” (after his regular alter-ego, Glenn Ganges) in the “Ignatz” collection, which makes very nice oversized, slip-cased editions. He’s got some online content you can peruse if you click the top left link on the front page (you’ll figure it out from there!).

David Byrne Journal: 05.03.2008: Objective Truth →
David Byrne reviews Errol Morris’ Standard Operating Procedure. It’s worth noting that the documentary tropes Byrne mentions were in large part developed by Morris himself, earlier in his career.
This is “I’ve Gotta Try” from Sloan’s Never Hear The End Of It. Pretty good, eh?
Hulu - Watch your favorites. Anytime. For free. →
This is a pretty sweet site for watching shows, especially if you’re like me and are always needing to catch up on them. Not super high video quality, but much better than YouTube.

Lots of fun pop-media-centric artwork! I know about this through my fandom of Brandon Bird, who has some work at the show.
