It’s More Than a Cookie. It’s a Cake.
Y’know what? Fig Newtons are delicious. I just thought I’d share that with you.

Damn they’re tasty.
Saturday was an interesting change in routine for me. Rather than doing yet another comic book convention, I was invited to attend Broke: The Affordable Art Fair, in Peterborough NH. It’s part of a weekend –long series of events and it was really great fun.

Carl Sagan –vs- The Matrix. I think you really need to be a Sagan fan to appreciate this, but I’m sharing it anyway. Because I think Sagan was THE MAN. And just because it fits, Dave Chappelle’s matrix spoof.
Alex Butera’s really awesome Batman Piderman piece.
The Good, The Bad, and The Weird, from Kim Ji-Woon looks like the best western since they stopped making them in Southern Italy.
OMG, I’m recycling random Splendor! People better start sending me links to funny pics, or we’re in trouble!
