For one reason or another, I've never mentioned this site before, but Comic Book Resources is a really good site to go to if you like comic books. It's pretty much what the name implies.

I just finished watching CKY 4. My review of it is unless you're just balls out for the CKY crew and everything they do, this is the only disc you need (as opposed to getting the box set with the other 3 CKY DVDs in it). But then again you probably won't even be interested in this disc unless you're sorta balls out for CKY already. So what I'm saying is this, if you're only kinda interested in checking out the whole CKY thing, get this disc as it serves as a CKY "greatest hits" DVD as well as showing their new stuff. This was a lousy review.. I apologize I'm on sleep inducing medication.

I made a bunch of changes to the "Art Gallery" section last week and forgot to mention it. If you want to check it out, you're welcome to do so.
At the moment, this sketch of Batman is my favorite pic from the entire gallery. I don't draw Batman much (because I usually screw it up real good), but I think this one is pretty ok. Any comments are both welcomed and appreciated.

New pictures from the Gamecube Mega Man game!!

"Hey, have ya'll got that new R. Kelly CD, Chocolate Salad?" - something I said to Edward as my impression of some of the customers we talk to

"Do you think Kalibak is tough because of super powers? Hell no, he's tough because of a lifetime of running his head into things. You fall off the roof into a pile of nails and trash enough times and you'll be a badass too." - Seanbaby on Kalibak, son of Darkseid from the Superfriends

Still sick. It still sucks. I don't even have enough energy to play Nintendo. Do you know how lame that is? It's real lame. Being sick is lame, and I hate it.

Being sick blows. Apparently I've got the flu or something similar to it, and it's kicking my butt all over the place.

Hip Today passed the 9,000 hit mark today. Wow..

In honor of the Academy Awards that took place over the weekend, I present to you this link to The Top 20 Performances by a Wrestler in a Motion Picture.

I found this link on Nate's site. It explains the internet. It makes a lot of sense.

Pete Yorn has a new disc coming out April 15 (which hopefully will be as good as his first album), and you can hear a sample of the first single "Come Back Home" here.

Great Quote Number One: "A lot of telling a good Superman story is how people respond to him. They have to respond differently to Superman that they would to Firestorm or Scarlet Witch. And it's how he shows up -- Superman's got to make a kickass entrance. You can have Scarlet Witch walk into a room and start talking, but Superman, he can't do that. I'm sure I've done it, but you're not supposed to. Superman's got to make a grand entrance. You've got to be like, 'F***, holy sh**, it's Superman!'" - Geoff Johns, current writer of The Flash, Hawkman, The Avengers, JSA, and the upcoming Teen Titans

Great Quote Number Two: "Superman resonates with everyone because he's an amalgamation of the legends we've loved for 5,000 years. He's Moses, Hercules, Icarus, and Jesus Christ all rolled up inside one American flag. He's the greatest fictional character of our time." - Mark Millar, writer of Ultimate X-Men, The Ultimates, and loads of other brilliant comics including the upcoming Superman: Red Son

While I like Steve quite a lot as a person, I'm afraid I have to point out the fact that he's been spreading lies to the good people of the internet. Whatever do I mean, you may be asking yourself as you try to wipe the Mr. Pibb from your monitor after hearing this shocking news. I'll tell you what I mean, he's saying that The Onion is the funniest site on the web. While I will admit that it is indeed a very funny website, for my money the two funniest stops on the internet are Penny Arcade (who's merits on the "funometer" were mentioned mere days ago), and
Don't believe me?
This picture should be all the coaxing you need to check his site out and to have your face rocked with mighty fists of comic hilarity.

Also, in case you've never been there, this is honestly what CompUSA is like.
And this is honestly what funny is like.

Quote of the Moment: I Get Wet when the party is dying, I Get Wet without even trying. I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet, I Get Wet when I know that your dying, I Get Wet without even trying! I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet I Get Wet!

Sam has let me know that he has also started a website, and since he's good enough to check mine out on a fairly regular basis, I thought it only fair to let you know about his.

I got a mention on Dani's site a few days ago as the highlight of her day being the postcard I sent her.

Diesel Sweeties has managed to sum the situation up very nicely. As Edward and I discussed tonight, and you're free to agree or disagree with me as you please (as well as share whatever your feelings are with me), I don't particularly agree with why we've entered into this war, but now that we're in it, I think we as Americans should support our nation's decisions as a sign of solidarity. When it's over and done with we can talk about it's merits, or lack thereof depending on how you see it, to all of our little hearts' content. And of course, there's always the option that if you don't like being an American based on the choices our government is making, unlike some other places, you're free to leave and go become a member of some other nation... I hear Mexico is hiring.

DS also has some shirts available on the subject that some of you very well could enjoy.

I've never been to San Fransico, but their "Hometown Newspaper", The Examiner, has a really well written recap of the year in music 2002. They of course forgot to mention, Silverchair and Butch Walker, but no one's perfect.

Or if you prefer to hear how a Detroit newspaper thought the year in music turned out, you can click here. This paper also dubbed 2002 the Year of the Party, and I'll give you all one guess as to who was given credit for leading the charge to make this so.

Sweet (pun intended) Jeebus! You want to talk about a website that will make you want to go and eat chocolate, then look no further.

As you no doubt know, I'm a really big fan of Penny Arcade, reason being, it's funnier than I have the mental capacity or verbal skills to fully communicate to all of you. And as funny as their comics are (Which make no mistake, they are funny. Funny. Fun-nay.) sometimes they are really at their best when they're getting to rip into stupidity, whether it be in inanimate, human, or idealogical form. A perfect example of this can be seen here as Gabe goes to town on those who have the nerve to call the look of the new Legend of Zelda game for Gamecube "kiddie". Scroll down to where it says "More on Celda".

For those that missed the link before, here's the pictures from the 2002 Christmas Party.
