Reading these has sucked me into a sort of existential vortex. I no longer can distinguish reality from some fractured cartoon landscape where the all alternate realities (whether snowflake, bubble, or otherwise) are collapsing in on themselves.
Red Lanterns updates:
Thank you so much to everyone who came and watched us at Pianos and Goodbye Blue Monday in NYC, we had a great time. Wait a minute, I said “we.” What’s the deal with that…? THE DEAL WITH THAT: my good friend Melissa has been deputized as a temporary member of RED LANTERNS! She accompanied me on several tunes in NYC (which hopefully I’ll have footage of relatively...

LOST: The End
Was the finale particularly good TV? Hard to say. In terms of answering questions raised by the show itself (the big one being WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THAT FREAKY ISLAND???) it was pretty much nothing, which, while certainly not required, is lazy writing. That said, the last 20 minutes of the show had me in literal tears. Endings like that always kill me.
Watching Lost finale. DON’T BOTHER ME.
The Facts In The Case Of Dr. Andrew Wakefield →
It’s about fucking time someone puts this whole “debate” into a clear, reasoned format. This whole “inoculations give children autism” malarky is not only built on flawed, inaccurate science, logical fallacies, and hysteria, it is exceedingly difficult to combat. Parents who’ve bought the anti-vaccine garbage have a wonderful “common sense” argument:...

Max is like 15 years old (no hyperbole) and already does wonderful, clever webcomics. His computer died. He needs $$$ and frankly, really deserves it. Give him moneys. I did.

Can Your Pussy Do The Dog: Assorted Thoughts
Very excited to have booked my flight to New Orleans in June. Yay traveling! On the subject of New Orleans, I’ve been enjoying HBO’s Treme. The first episode was a bit sleepy for me and it hasn’t hooked me like most HBO shows do, but that might have more to do with it be much less high concept than almost anything on HBO. It’s a nice slice of life show and I’ve been...
Is Tony Stark Still a Dickhead →
I’ve always like the moral complexity to Iron Man/Tony Stark. In a way, it allows him a certain freedom in his portrayal. Unlike someone like Captain America or Superman or Thor or Spiderman, whose iconography is deeply tied to the idea of doing stark, absolute justice in every case and is too prominent to stray (unless for the sake of an “imaginary story”), Tony exists in this...
R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio, 1942-2010
This sucks. Sad see you go, Dio. RIP man. twentyfourbit: Sad news this morning: Wendy Dio, wife and manager of Ronnie James Dio, announced that the iconic metal singer died today after fighting stomach cancer since his diagnosis last fall. Dio, whose long career included singing with Black Sabbath, Elf, Heaven & Hell, Rainbow, and DIO, of course, was 67. In a message sent to Blabbermouth...
