World Weekly News: My mom had a standing order to get it from the grocery store.

But then I took "So I Married an Axe Murderer" as canon.

Now latter generations need to decide: Truth? or Awesome?

It's guest writer week at Dino Comics.

I liked this one from last year,

but this one just blows my mind.

This article has a remarkable headline:

vancouversun.com/news/Governor+...

I hope it is the first of a string of headlines with the form "[Government Official] Eats the Heart of [Thing Being Killed] to Support [Those Who Kill Them]."
Drawing of Mt. Fuji from our trip a few weekends ago.

Some reasonable sounding music subscription streaming service returns to the market, since Yahoo Music Unlimited's tragic demise.  That, and it's not conducted by devil's spawn.  (Best Buy acquiring Napster is also news to me.)

Readers who know more than me - is the comparison to last.fm and pandora a fair comparison here?  I want thoughts on this.  (Also, I haven't seen if this works from Japan yet, but that's just temporary anyway.)
Dracula blog.  Neat.

As some of you know, I grew up in a house with a herding dog - from the day be brought her home, she tried to herd the cats, and she'd frequently direct our childhood friends into the basement.  At soccer games, she'd occasionally try to herd the linesmen on to the field where the rest of the flock was.

This is for you, Mabel:

My latest Adventure with Customer Service

briansverymiscellaneousblog.blogspot.com/2009/03/advent...
So, for the last 2 days at work I have listened to nothing but the podcast from youlooknicetoday.com/ .  And it's done something like hit a reset switch for my sense of humor.  My emails have gotten funnier. I laugh more. People stop by my desk and tell me that my latest mistake caused the housing crisis to escalate to the point where my church has become a roaming tent-like tabernacle, and I just can't stop giggling.  This podcast is 3 guys telling anecdotes and lies to each other. Give them 30 minutes.
Let's rock the F*** out.

I just bought 5 albums of mp3s last week.  That's 5 more than I bought in 2008.
I just learned two things about comets.

The US demographic that gets the most laptop-in-front-of-tv time:  30-something moms.  Watch out, moms.

I've been reading a book called "Outliers", and now when I see things like the above, I now wonder what preceding sociological phenomena brought them about. (Like, someone will realize the seed was planted when they all started playing with Strawberry Shortcake.)
Foley artists for silent films describe their art:

(Give it a minute, it's just about perfect.)
Pretty Matian sunset.  (hi-res, too.)

Perhaps the last news we'll hear from the Jammie Thomas file sharing case.  (RIAA appeal refused.)

When I find collections like this, I want to high-five the collector, then tell them to knock it off already.
Announcing a project I've been working on lately: generating streams of color from samples of sound.  Described within.

Barack Obama's win adds to the possibility of another US-hosted World Cup in 2018 or 2022.

Weirdly, the 1994 US World Cup still holds the record for total attendance for any World Cup, ever.
Joe the Plumber has a website.
We wish our new president blessings of wisdom and good judgment, and we pray he hearkens to our voice if ever we feel our American Dream is being threatened. It will be a loud voice, so good luck trying to ignore it.

Hopefully this is the last we'll hear of "Joe the Plumber", the weirdest political gambit of the 2008 election.
