Congratulations, Wil! Kyle + Rosemary looks like a fun little show, and it's great to see another successful female animator.

Congratulations, Katie! Tons smarter than I'll ever be.

You can listen to Neil Young's new anti-war album via the link from Tom Tomorrow's site.

Look, literary snake oil! Let's rub it all over ourselves!

What Arthur said. You have a problem with someone's points of view, critique those, not his or her appearance.

David Byrne ruminates on the price of petrol in Brighton (and how dependent on black gold most Americans don't realize they are). I get the feeling we won't be renting (or as they say "hiring") a car when we're there in a couple weeks.

Retardo Montalban may be a silly pseudonym, but his post at Sadly, No! on Francis Fukiyama's remarks on how to manufacture an enemy, and rumination on what purposes it serves, is deadly serious.

I had a feeling from the beginning that this "yearly Kos" convention thing would be too inside'ish for my tastes even if I did want to go to Vegas in June (and who in their right mind does?). But you know, skippy did coin that phrase, so please stop fighting, kids.
