But did you like the play, Mrs. Linkin'?

I think I've officially run out of link-related puns. Thank God.

I added a bunch of new blogs to the sidebar recently, including Dave's Long Box, Delenda Est Carthago, Library Ninja, The Absorbascon, and Bird Season's Over, Butthorn! Most of 'em are comics related (big shock), but that last one is the my old roommate Jeremy's blog; I guarantee you've never read anything quite like it before (unless you lived with the guy for a couple of years), so check it out. I also re-arranged the blog section a bit so that it makes a little more sense (to me at least).

According to the Film Threat website,
Gimme Gimme Octopus is now available on DVD. If you've never seen this Japanese children's show before, you owe it to yourself to check it out at least once. It's this H.R. Pufnstuf-esque program about this octopus who acts like an asshole and generally makes life miserable for everyone around him (everyone includes a pear, a walrus, a dragon, some cucumbers and a badger, among others). It has no redeeming social value, and is final clinching proof that Americans will never understand the Japanese psyche. So you pretty much need to watch it.

Look, it's
The Crockett Johnson Homepage! (via) Now if only someone would collect "Barnaby," life would be very sweet indeed.

That Red Sox fan who smacked Gary Sheffield got his season tickets revoked. Good. Better yet, Sheffield won't be punished. Now I've made it pretty clear that I'm no Yankee fan, but Sheffield was clearly the wronged individual in this case, and if anything, I think he should be rewarded for not tearing the guy's throat out, Road House style.

If you haven't been there yet, you need to check out Kiddie Records Weekly. There's some amazingly classic stuff there (my favorite so far is "Gerald McBoingBoing" as read by The Great Gildersleeve, but your mileage may vary). I've been downloading like crazy. You know, for Liam (riiiiiight).
