Achewood & June 28, 2009

http://www.achewood.com/index.php?date=06282009 Achewood is consistently mentioned in Top Webcomics lists, but for the life of me I’ve never understood why. Rambling, poorly drawn, and with a point understood only by its creator (and possibly some of those who keep naming it as a Top Webcomic).

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070112/en_nm/soccer_beckham_conference_dc_1 Posh and Becks are coming to LA to be with the rest of the Plastic People. Yawn. I’ve always found David Beckham to be a waste of space. Some of the girls in the office today took umbrage at this, apparently seeing him as a big, walking aphrodisiac. Clearly, they’ve never listened to him […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070105/ap_on_re_us/mansion_madam_4 America’s sleaziest headlines are often a harbinger of some very telling social remarks. I particularly loved this cause for concern, voiced by a high-priced madam’s neighbours: Porter could not say for sure how long the illegal activity was going on, but neighbors have been complaining for at least three years. Among other things, neighbors […]

13 Photographs That Changed the World.

http://www.neatorama.com/2007/01/02/13-photographs-that-changed-the-world/ As the comments point out, calling these “photos that changed the world” isn’t exactly accurate, as the list is very America-heavy. And the accompanying text, while well written, is poorly researched. (The entire Brady blurb is erroneous, and so is the photo credit.) Nonetheless, they’re great, iconic shots, worth a look if you haven’t […]

darkMonkey.org.uk – Image Number 1002

http://darkmonkey.org.uk/4/Main/1002/ An example of what the Onion would call “not fully thought out” advertising. You’ve got to know the marketer who came up with this is either a sick pervert or one of the most sweet and innocent people on the planet. Thanks (?) to Sinycizym for the Stumble.

http://www.imaidcafe.com/ I don’t have much to say about this weird little cosplay/fetish themed restaurant, because I’m too stunned by its location. This is just down the street from my work, in one of the more boring, industrial parts of Scarborough – which is one of the more boring, industrial parts of Toronto. I have no […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20061108/wl_nm/mideast_usa_dc_2 “The United States is deeply saddened by the injuries and loss of life in Gaza today,” Bush said in a statement. “We have seen the Israeli government’s apology and understand an investigation has begun.” I’m confused – and I mean this sincerely – as to why the Israeli bombing of Gaza merits a chastisement […]

Pigments through the Ages – detailed pigment histories, recipes

http://webexhibits.org/pigments/ “Pigments Through the Ages…” I’m sure this is actually quite fascinating, but I’m so distracted I haven’t read any of it yet. This is a history of pigments.* I think we can safely say that there is now, officially, a website for everything. *(sound of mind being blown)
