Snow Sharks

Calvin and Hobbes wasn’t in the Sunday funnies when I was young enough to be reading the Sunday funnies, so I sort of missed that whole boat. Every now and then I’d see a strip, though, and I always thought it was a great comic. (The “snow sharks” one was my favorite.) Someone gave me […]

The Long Halloween

I have been reading Batman stories for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid I used to gorge myself on Detective Comics, Batman, and — my favorite — The Brave and the Bold (which was back then always tales of Batman and Superman teaming to fight the bad guys). One of […]

Enough with Your Pancakes

Every day a new city, a new IHOP. And yet every night the dreams get worse. I ply the highways, a nervous eye on the rear-view mirror, the back seat piled with stolen menus.

Dark Knight

My wife and I went to see The Dark Knight at 12:45am. I am a huge Batman fan and this movie did not disappoint. It was just a hair under three hours long, and — aside from the fact that I knew I was going to be late to work today — I didn’t want […]

All the Baseball Games Are Lost

“All the loves in the strip are unrequited; all the baseball games are lost; all the test scores are D-minuses; the Great Pumpkin never comes; and the football is always pulled away.” — Charles Schultz on Peanuts from Caterina

Pricey Spidey

Is Spider-Man 3 the most expensive movie ever made?

Superman Returns

My biggest fear was that they were going to screw up the music. John Williams’ score in the original movie made the film. I mean, the music was the movie. There couldn’t possibly be a movie without the duh, duh-duh-duh, da / da-da-daa. The first time I had any idea that there was a new […]

Peppermint Patty

I find it completely incomprehensible that Peppermint Patty refers to Snoopy as “a funny-looking kid with a big nose.” How could she possibly not recognize that he is a dog?!

Far Side

“I know you miss the Wainwrights, Bobby, but they were weak and stupid people – and that’s why we have wolves and other large predators.” Update: I received an email from Gary Larson’s attorneys requesting very, very strongly that I remove the image. :0(

If you still haven’t been able to catch my card at FriezLog’s Weblogémon, but you really want to see it, I’ve posted it here. I think it’s a pretty fair representation of what I’d look like if I was a Japanese animated character. <grin>

X-Men. Go. See. Now.

July 16th, 2000 @ 3:17 pm

And as usual I feel like that (previous post) is not even close to what I wanted to say. Oh well. I’ll try again some other day. For now I’m off to see X-Men.
