Another Saturday Night…

Saturday, April 30th, 2005

For most of the past two-and-a-half years, I’ve been alone. Tonight, for the first time in a very long time, I noticed. I figure that’s probably a good sign. News | The atheist

Friday, April 29th, 2005

You need to get a “day pass” to Salon to read this entire article: News | The atheist It’s an interview with evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. The day pass is free. You just have to sit through an ad. And it’s worth it. I think Dawkins qualifies as one of the bravest men on […]

The *Hard Time: Season 2* #3 script is finished. Next week, the editor of the book — the ever-forbearing Joan Hilty — and I will engage in our ritual monthly gladiatorial match over plot points, characterizations, speech patterns, and what does and does not constitute gratuitous obfuscation. As if *I* would ever obfuscate gratuitously…!

The Cysts that Don’t Exist, and other Conundrums

Friday, April 29th, 2005

Abou t ready to stumble off to bed, entering the land of fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff the land of leaning on the keyboard wtihout realizing. I am plagued with gingivitis and an unknown skin-devouring condition I call, alternately, Poogroch Circles and ‘The Cysts that Don’t Exist”, at least no Las Vegas dermatologist believes they do.

Why Horses’ Asses are Very Important

Wednesday, April 27th, 2005

I’m going to cheat. I didn’t write this. I don’t know who did. Mary Skrenes forwarded it to me as an email some months ago. It may or may not be true, but I have no trouble believing it. Does the statement, “We’ve always done it that way” ring any bells? The US standard railroad […]

Me and Your Yahoo

Tuesday, April 26th, 2005

Monday, April 25th, 2005

There’s a problem with the RSS feeds from this site. If you’ve experienced it, please add a comment to this post and let me know exactly what happened.(If possible, include the text of any error message you get.)

I’m still a few pages from finishing the script, but it couldn’t wait any longer. I sent out the stuff I had done to the editor and artist. I hate doing that. Mary hates it even more than I do. Sending out an incomplete script, even if it’s just a few pages short, is like […]

Accept No Substitute

Saturday, April 23rd, 2005

There are lots of things that are hipper (maybe), lots of things that are more contemporary, lots of things that will get you more girls and more respect from Vertigo readers — and more girl Vertigo readers — but sometimes there’s just no substitute for the tonic effect of the Beach Boys’ “Fun Fun Fun” […]
