  • It makes sense that somebody on the Newgrounds portal would eventually plant their tongue firmly in cheek and give BS ‘the business’, as my Ma used to say. Imagine my surprise upon waking this morning and following this link to the latest submission from the infamous CLOCK CREW over at NG. Pretty coo’ :)

    The Clock is Ticking…

  • Perhaps a dire fate

    will greet us this Saturday

    Must…keep…PRACTICING!!!

    (Only five days – and only TWO damn rehearsals – until the big BS show on the 20th. Send your good vibes if you can’t make it, and be sure to get your butts over to The Shore if you’re ANYWHERE near the Van-city limits!!!)

    Some Serious Word-Spreading!!!

    A thread of saintly SECRETS…

  • A new thread on the Forums was started anonymously yesterday evening. The idea seemed simple enough:

    Ok. Got something new for you folks. The rules: Post anonymously.. don’t need nor want to know who you are. And second, tell us something about you.

    I woke up this morning – the first thought on my mind being to check the level of response – and have been stunned into silence.

    Go. Read. CONTRIBUTE.

    (today’s pic is one in a series of homemade postcards on the ‘Postsecret Blog‘ – where folks anonymously submit a homemade postcard that displays a secret about themselves. Uber-compelling stuff, friends.)

    A Kiwi Haiku for you…

  • Those New Zealanders

    know how NOT to pull punches

    in advertising!

    (B – according to the alternative news blokes over at Rense.com, this is an actual roadside ad for a Kiwi pizza place. Can any saintly friends down that way take a snap and confirm?)

  • Hey kiddies – a quick media hit before the day drags me away *sigh* As I think I blurbed before the Con, the latest issue of North America’s smartest horror magazine – RUE MORGUE - features a hefty 3-page article on all things BS. Pretty damn sweet of these fellow Canucks to give us the time of…err…night, and it turns out they really, REALLY dig us! Nothing like a dangerous dose of Ghoul Love ;) Not only that, but we get scarred and bloody facetime in the same issue as features on Japanese gore-shogun Takashi Miike and personal hero David Lynch‘s Eraserhead re-release. More than a c-hair of cool, let me tell you daddio…let me tell you!!!!

    Peter Jennings – R.I.P.

  • FROM ABC.COM

    Aug. 7 — ABC News Anchor Peter Jennings died today at his home in New York City. He was 67. On April 5, Jennings announced he had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

    He is survived by his wife, Kayce Freed, his two children, Elizabeth, 25, and Christopher, 23, and his sister, Sarah Jennings.

    “Peter died with his family around him, without pain and in peace. He knew he’d lived a good life,” his wife and children said in a statement.

    In announcing Jennings’ death to his ABC colleagues, News President David Westin wrote:

    “For four decades, Peter has been our colleague, our friend, and our leader in so many ways. None of us will be the same without him.

    “As you all know, Peter learned only this spring that the health problem he’d been struggling with was lung cancer. With Kayce, he moved straight into an aggressive chemotherapy treatment. He knew that it was an uphill struggle. But he faced it with realism, courage, and a firm hope that he would be one of the fortunate ones. In the end, he was not.

    “We will have many opportunities in the coming hours and days to remember Peter for all that he meant to us all. It cannot be overstated or captured in words alone. But for the moment, the finest tribute we can give is to continue to do the work he loved so much and inspired us to do.”

    (I might relentlessly bash ‘Big Media’, but I still had respect for the ‘old guard’ that did their best – politics aside – to make Murrow proud, and push past the corporate gatekeeping to get as much of the ‘truth’ out to the people as possible. Godspeed, Peter…)

    You have to start somewhere…

  • I am willing to bet that the man who made this gripping flick for 30K – and then followed it up with this soul-ripper for 300K – will collapse our personal universes with 30M at the tips of his brilliant synapses. How do I know, beyond the odd script and set leaks, and a cryptic appearance at Comicon???

    This Flash teaser‘s enough to make me go all Darko-ish. Eeeeeeeep.

    (EDIT – and as a late-night counter to that creepy-cool feeling you just can’t shake, grab a moist towelette and laugh yourself snot-silly with this l’il number from the Daily Show – the Power of Tom compels you!!!)
